I support Baroque Works Arc, too. This arc has it all, awesome fights, funny moments, great storyline and what I won't forget when I was reading it was the added suspense especially when the SH were already identified by the Baroque Works. And the small sub-arcs were great too. So yeah, this is overall my favorite arc of OP.

Re: Favorite Arc/Storyline
Tough choice on this one...
Personally I'd of never remained interested enough to truly enjoy O.P. as a manga without Arlong Park.
Arlong Park was for me the first time where Oda showed his full capability as far as depth and emotion.
While I think there are other arcs that helped establish the SH as "THE" crew of note more meaningfully, IMHO the roots of all that greatness begin at Arlong Park.
So if it wasn't obvious with great trepidation I support Arlong Park
I support Water7/Enies Lobby. Great fights, great villains (CP9), great story, Robin's betrayal & explanation, Usopp burning the flag, Sogeking, Introduction of Franky, New Bounties, end revelations about Garp & Dragon, new boat, the old boat, ...
It was the most complete arc.
This. I felt a chill when Luffy told Sogeking to burn the flag, and he did. And when Robin said she wanted to live. And when Robin was finally saved.
