Portal (city)

A city portal is permanent version of the Portal spell used by mages that appears in a fixed spot in a city. They tend only to appear in cities possibly due to the potentially large power requirements. The exact mechanism of how they work is not known. However, some fixed portals can be seen to have mages actively maintaining them.

Most city portals connect to other cities, but some connect to well traveled points of interest.

In 0300Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.2. all major cities added a portal to the Blasted Lands near the location of mage trainers. These portals lead to a ravine right in front of the Dark Portal. Further, portals to Stormwind City and Orgrimmar were added on the other side of the Dark Portal. The result is that it is now possible to port from any city to Orgrimmar/Stormwind City using the chain of portals in about 1-2 minutes.

    We had a number of instances where people were coming back to the game after not playing for a long period, in some cases years, and having a really difficult time finding their way to where they should be.
    Stormwind and Orgrimmar portals now exist in Dalaran and Shattrath to help them get to the relevant cities in Cataclysm; one for each faction, and only those two portals exist to facilitate that intent.
