The Stair of Destiny

The Stair of Destiny is the massive foundation of the Dark Portal in Outland. Like Shattrath City, the Stair is a sanctuary, where PvP combat is disabled.

By contrast, the Portal in Outland is much larger and more elaborately decorated than the Portal in Azeroth, and is located on the "edge of the world" in eastern Hellfire Peninsula. Like the crater around the Portal in Azeroth, the Stair of Destiny is heavily entrenched by both the Horde and the Alliance. The stair's defenses are constantly attacked by demons, led by a gigantic Pit Commander. The demons include felguard foot soldiers, infernals that rain from the sky, and heavier armored wrathguards. The forces of Azeroth have made portals to both Orgrimmar and Stormwind (which players can use), apparently calling in reinforcements to the front. Upon receiving their first quest here, flight paths to Honor Hold (Alliance) and Thrallmar (Horde) are automatically given to players, allowing them to access Outland while avoiding the legions of demons that surround the Portal. Leading from the Stair of Destiny is the Path of Glory, which runs from the base of the Stair to Hellfire Citadel.

For both Alliance and Horde, this will be the place where players receive their first Outland quest.

See Dark Portal for information about the Portal's other side.
