play the game for 14 years and you don't need portals at all :) Removed
Death Knights actually can't go to Eastern Kingdoms with their Death Gate ability. Once you unlock the Broken Isles, Death Gate becomes attuned to teleporting you to Acherus' new location.
mages are certainly going to shoot back up in popularity
stonard to kara is a pretty short jaunt.
Worth noting that Druids that have unlocked Dreamwalk can reach areas close to several of the removed portals: Duskwood is near both Karazhan and Blasted Lands, Hinterlands is near the Dalaran Crater, and Grizzly Hills is near Wyrmrest Temple.
You can also talk to Zidormi in Northrend Dalaran to get to Caverns of Time. Unlike Zephyr, she isn't rep gated.
going to suck for alliance come winter veil. imo, since they are going to make it more crappy, there should be a temp portal up for the season
Removed I dont want to spend my time flying everywhere when there used to be a portal to that place that took seconds. More portals needed in my opinion.
For the Dalaran Crater, it's also possible for a Rogue to use the TP to Ravenholdt
A lot of the issues could be resolved if Blizzard just let collectors buy or earn a Collector's Hearthstone we could use to hearth to dungeon/raid meeting stones, one at a time.
havn't tested it on PTR but monks can go to the old location of their order hall by talking to someone, i think where the old - prelegion portal to stormwind/org was. This puts them in kun lai in the mountains.Zen Pilgrimage, find zidormi ask to see what it looked like before the legion attacked. Where zidormi is i forget off the top of my head, but you shouldn't have too much problems finding zidormi. I think its right of where you teleport looking down the stairs (shrine behind you).
FYI - The Dark Portal actually functions in 8.1.5 for the first time since the 6.0 patch. It will bring you to Hellfire if you are under 90. The Honor Hold mage and Thrallmar mages actually port you to Blasted Lands (in front of the Dark Portal) and you can walk through from there.
To be honest, I can't help feeling a little bad for Alliance players who go to do stuff in Pandaria. Their village in Jade Forest is closer to the Timeless Isle and maaaaybe Galleon, but everything else on the continent is basically as far away as they possibly can be.They can take the others, but I firmly believe the port to Pandara really should remain central, like how we still get Shattrath and Dalaran for BC and Wrath.
Another way to get to various points in Outland or Draenor is by getting to the other continent through one means or another (portals, Garrison Hearthstone, Admiral's Compass, the various Outland port items, etc) and then using Ever-Shifting Mirror to poke a hole in reality and hop through.
