Why do the Alliance have to fly two damn ports to travel to NR and the Horde can travel from TWO cities?
5-17-2008 @ 7:11PM
Because there are no ports in the main Cities for the Alliance. Horde have the Zepplin towers.QQ a lil more over the logic.

Probably because we (the Horde) do not have any harbors whatsoever. If the above notes are true, we're probably getting docks added onto our two cities that are close to water (other than Silvermoon). These are also our travel hub cities, seeing as UC and Orgrimmar also have the zepplins.

I reckon those ports will be changed before release.I'm still adamant that the transport to the Northrend will have something to do with the IQD harbor.

I believe the idea (which is dissapointing but makes sense) is that they want you to be able to get to both zones from one area, but still at the same time add two entrances.Meaning, that you can go from theramore->mentil etc, so if your in IF you can reach the other entrance. Same thing with org/uc.What's disapointing is that this means that the IF Airport would not be used for northrend. =(

So say you're in Shattrath and you want to go to Borean Tundra you have to go: Ironforge-fly-Menethil-Boat-Theramore-boat- Valliance Keep.or Ironforge-fly-Menethil-Boat-Valgarde-Tuskarr Turtle-Valliance Keep.and the Horde can just go Orgrimmar/Undercity-Zeppelin- Arrival....NICE

Or you could just pay a mage to portal you to Theramore. problem sloved no need for crying

it takes about as long to get to menethil from IF than it does to get to the zeppelin from Org. So, no sweat.

Complaining about which side can get to Northrend faster is probably about as pointless as complaining about which side can get to the dark portal in Azeroth faster. After the first time you'll never do it again.

Actually all mages can train in the teleport/prtal for Theramore in Jaina's tower as of last patch, so it's not all that bad, though there's no Theramore port from Shat.
