Dalaran Portals Removed in Cata!

OH NOES THE SKY IS FALLING!! ILL HAVE TO TAKE A 2M FLIGHTPATH TO GET FROM ORG TO TB WAH WAH WAH RAGEQUIT!!1!!!

...

Ahem. The latest beta change has been the removal of the portals to Org/IF/Sw from Dalaran and Shatt; the intention clearly being to force players back into their faction's capital cities instead of having everyone clustered in the previous expansion's content. According to many people online, this is the end of the goddamn world. Personally, I like the change. I've always liked the PVP aspect of Warcraft (and not just WoW), and found the idea of a neutral city that the Horde and Alliance shared (while not being able to kill each other) very silly. It broke immersion (such as it is) seeing tons of humans and orcs just chilling together in a game supposedly about war.

With this change we'll be back in Org, and they'll be back in IF or SW, and encounters with the opposite faction will be more rare (and bloody). All in all a good change to make things feel more worldly. This will also be another buff to mages, as the value of portals will rise considerably.

  1. I love this change. Not going to lie. I feel like us just chilling out is a stupid idea as well. It really makes no sense at all. This will again make WoW more of what Warcraft is. Horde and Alliance HATE EACH OTHER. Nice post man

  2. Portals from mages shouldn't have value, that's retarded... Apart from that, good change... Even though I don't play anymore, WoW takes too much valuable time fellas, you'll realize when you quit...

  9. It's super gay :( but helps fit the lore a little better. Its dumb to have both horde and alliance in a major city with no pvp.
