Well, I think that's the point. Blizzard is fond of taking gold out of players' hands, but not so keen to put it in other players' hands. I have a feeling that portals in Dalaran and Shattrath *may* come back, simply because there's no in-game competition now. Almost every other profession has some kind of in-game alternative - armor, weapons, potions, and gems can be crafted, but that's not the only way to get those items (vendors, drops, quest rewards, etc.) Even enchanting has competition from vendored head-slot enchants. By removing free mass-transit, they've effectively created a market for it. It will be interesting to see how it will play out. Basil ~ isn't this the point where we would talk about the opportunity cost of leveling a mage, and the potential profit of of a new market with no in-game competition? Necromann, sorry you spent so much gold to level a different profession, but at least next time it won't be so bad?

You'll never, ever make back selling ports the time you spent leveling a mage to get them. Even with an 80 mage, I can think of far more profitable things to be doing than selling ports.

"You'll never, ever make back selling ports the time you spent leveling a mage to get them. Even with an 80 mage, I can think of far more profitable things to be doing than selling ports."While I agree to a certain extent, there has been a mage on my server who has been hanging around in trade selling ports for 15g. Assuming he gets at least one per minute (which he easily gets, I've used his taxi service before), that's 900g/hour. I think there are more profitable ways to go (and more fun and interesting to be frank), but it is a legitimate way to raise a lot of gold.Also, I don't think blizzard will put portals back in. They are more likely to remove portal spells from mages' spellbooks.
