They are doing this for the same reason they put a portal up for the ghostlands and teh draenei area... so all the freeloaders who didnt buy Cata cant just fly up to the extra zones.

My rocket mount and i disagree

The reason for the portal is because those zones are on the outland servers.

@shrk352: The reason why they are on the Outland servers is so people who didn't buy TBC wouldn't be able to access them, which is the point that the original comment was trying to make.

@Eturyu: I'm sure if someone doesn't have the flying skill they probably won't be able to board your rocket mount. I don't know if it already works like that in Outland or Northrend, but it seems like an easy fix to put in.

@Ashwan: That would break the idea of the rocket mount entirely. RaF mates hardly have flying skill when they need my help, now do they?

@Tbah: Doh! You're right, of course.Now I'm wondering if they're going to have to build invisible domes around all the 80-85 zones so that players without the expansion can't fly in there on a rocket mount. And if that's the case, then why have the Flight Master's License at all?

Honestly, I don't think they're adding this for that reason at all. You can freely *walk* in to three of the five expansion zones. No gates, no barriers. Just cr*ploads of highlevel mobs to squish you.I guess this is why the entrypoints into zones are in the higher end of the zone. For example Hyjal questing starts from the point furthest away from the point where you can walk in to there from Winterspring. So does Uldum and Twilight Highlands.
