Maybe I've not found them yet, but is there any easy way to get from SW to Darn without using a boat? (Or a mage portal?)

The boat is pretty darn easy. It goes right to Rut'Theran Village now, and you just have to run up the hill through the purple portal.

We're not able to swim across oceans my friend, the game simply doesn't let us. So your only options are via boat, or by mage portal. Also -- for those who are curious.Exodar and Darn are linked by portals available near their respective mage trainers (right next to the blasted lands portal).Teldrassil has 3 different docks now -- the one that is to your left as you come through the pink portal leaving darn leads to what I believe will eventually be Gilneas -- the one straight ahead -- leads to stormwind and the one on your far right leads to azuremyst isle (the space goat/exodar region).Once in storm wind, you can reach IF by taking the portal to the Tram in the dwarven district.

Any way for me on Horde side to get to Azuremyst for Pilgrim's Peril?Yesterday I was able to run from Lor'Danel to Rut'theran thanks to a Shaman who was working on the same thing, because the boat never, ever, appeared -- and the lvl 85 guards ate us.So, how can I get to Azuremyst or, by defect, to Rut'theran?Thanks in advance!

@dugmetAyyyup. Your Runed Band of the Kirin Tor will do you a ton of good when you're stranded in tumbleweed ridden city of Dalaran without a portal to Darnassus, which is where the OP wants to go.;)

Also nice that they FINALLY connected the Exodar and the rest of its islands to the rest of the world via flight path.

Can we have Captain Placeholder back? I did not miss having to catch boats in order to play.

As far as I can tell, Horde players have to catch the boat from Stormwind to Rutha'ran in order to go to both Darnassus or the Exodar -- which was a real pain for me this morning, as the city guards are now 85 and can tear you up. Sigh.

Does the boat that goes to "what will eventually be gilneas" work now? Will we be able to get to Gilneas Ruins? I have a baby hunter and i want to get a mastiff, and it seems to be the lowest level area to train them. :)

Is there anyway to cross the waters in Darkshore to get to Teldrassil? Or am I going to have to wait til I am level 85 to be able to hop on a boat to get there? I was so close to getting explorer of Kalimdor, I just need those 3 islands now!

This is how I did it:You can acutally water walk from Darkshore to Ruthan (sic) village and end up near the portal to Darnassus proper. You need to swim/walk out to the most north-western point of Darkshore sea before you start getting hit by fatigue (just check on your world map). Then use your shammy/DK waterwalking ability or pop a potion of waterwalking and run in a straight line towards the village. With the potion you can also mount up. On a mount you should be able to make it to shore with about 20-30 secs left on the fatigue so make sure you head in a direct line. You'll still have to content with a lot of level 85 guards with large aggro radii. So be careful. Just make sure you get through that portal to Darnassus then you can spirit rez in the GY on the Darnassus side if you get killed in the city. Once rezzed you can skirt around most of the guards to get to the table. If you die in Ruthan village you rez back in Darkshore. If you run across the water from the same point I described above your ghost won't die of fatigue on the ocean, but if you go less directly it will fatigue out and die again.You can get on the boat to Exodar once you get back out. If you swim around the jetty for the Exodar boat there are only 2 guards to avoid. I CC'd them and ran for the boat. By the time I got on the boat they had un-aggroed. From what I could see, there was only a boat to Stormwind and Exodar from Teldrassil Isle, the Darkshore one is removed.I hope this helped!

Do they still have portals in Shattrath? Didn't have time to check last nite.

The boat nevere goes to Gilneas. It only arrives from there. It's a one-way trip, you know. Or you don't. Roll a worgen, play the starting experience and you will.Regardless, the boat won't go to Gilneas.
