Boy oh Boy, I can not wait for people to QQ over the portals being gone! lol I wish people would read these patch notes more closely! Its not a race to be on first. I wonder...will Dethwing take a little longer to destroy Azeroth then the server maintenance says? In the words of my kids favorite movie "Ooo This is gonna be good, I can tell" (Dori from Finding Nemo).Have fun all and enjoy.

I logged my mage out right next to where the portals were just so I can make some gold porting people to Orgrimmar or wherever. :P

I want have a 80 mage just so I can toss the portals up in their spots and then run and hide around the corner.

As one that can always use more gold I think 5g a person not to much to ask one think I don't know is are the portals in Shattrah gone too?

Why is everyone so concerned with not having the portals?I'm not seeing why there is such a fuss over portals dying and suddenly all mages think they are going to get used a lot. It won't be like vanilla where everyone and their mother asked for a portal because dungeons don't require summoning anymore. Just do LFG finder and you're there. Mages might be used to bring people to Orgrimmar/SW for raids, and during the world events like Pilgrim's Bounty (where going to everywhere is part of the event). I for one enjoy and embrace the new Azeroth we are being given. I hope that everyone will just go to their Flight master, pay the money, and just enjoy the ride. When did everyone become so fixated on "Instant Gratification"?Oh wait...I'm like that. Where's a mage? (/sarcasm)

re: portals, etc.What many don't seem to know or realize is that in Cataclysm, in order to even queue for many of the new dungeons & raids you first have to discover them, which means exploration. You can't just sit around and queue for everything automatically, you have to roam about and discover it first. Not that doing so is difficult, however with all the QQ about portals and with the rest of it all being so dumbed down it is a bit of a stretch to expect players to get off their arses and find it so I expect that will be dropped soon after launch.

Oh don't get me wrong, I too, welcome the change. But we all know how patch day goes..."OMG, am I lagging? Where's the portals?" "Someone help me!! I can't get to Stormwind/Ogrimmar from Dalaran!" And yes, all portals (i.e. Dalaran and Shatt) are gone.So taking bets on Servers being playable...I say by 6 server! Do I hear tomorrow morning?
