Warcraft Wednesday: The Problem With Portal’s!

Greetings Azerothian’s, this is your friendly neighborhood shadow priest. Today we are going to talk about portal’s.

In patch 8.1.5 we are going to be getting portal rooms in Stormwind and Orgrimmar. Just as an fyi, the Cataclysm portals are still located at the Earthshrine in Stormwind and in Orgrimmar. Overall, I do like the idea. However I do see some issues that populate up with the removal of the other portal’s.

The first issue I see is the direct portal to Karazhan is just gone. There is so much lore behind the instance, and honestly, a lot of people love that place and zone. I know a lot of players are also looking to attain the mount from the instance as well. We are also losing the Caverns of Time removed as well. While we had no official reason for the change, the intent appears to be to clean up the portals a little bit and have one central location, rather than having some portals in Stormwind’s Mage Quarter, Docks, and Keep all at the same time.

The secondary issue is that with all the portals that we had since Pandaria, a clean up of the portals post ‘Siege of Orgrimmar’ would have been a softer blow to the player base.

Here is where I will give Blizzard a little bit of a break because the changes are not even in the game as of yet and I would like to give things a go before I make a final decision weather or not I love or hate it.
