It is! Verdant Brink is a great map. Auric Basin is pretty fun as well, with a great (and popular) meta event that has great rewards.
Things start to get a bit too hectic when you get to Tangled Depths, however. It’s a multilevel map that at first is really, really difficult to navigate, with tons of annoying enemies in some parts… but it can be fun once you get used to it.
Then there’s Dragon Stand, which is pretty much a meta-only map. Fun when there’s people doing the meta, but there’s no reason to go there otherwise, alas.
Oh boy, if you think gliding is fun, just wait until you get mounts. ;)
