I wish that they would put a portal in each major city that a player could use (lvl considered, of course) and just let us pay a few coins. No need looking for mages, no having to spend a lot of time flying from 1 city to another. Let the mages continue to port themselves. So much time is wasted in the game traveling, and of course, we have so many NPCs in the game reminding us, "Time is money!"

There is a fine line to straddle between making things convenient for players and destroying their sense of existing in a world with geography.

I still maintain that if you go AFK while traveling, it's taking too long. And, someone might suggest to make going AFK take a little longer - well that's not a solution. I mean, after 500 flights from Darnassus to any city\town south of Thousand Needles is a waste of my time.

Anything south of Thousand Needles IS a waste of time.. but flying from Darnassus? I'd think it would be quicker to take the Stormwind boat and grab the Uldum portal.

The fact that one would suggest going from continent to continent supports my point. Blizz has lowered the lvl for mounts & brought flying to Azeroth, no longer to used just the Outlands or Northrend. That is to me indicates that they are aware of the travel times are much too long. In vanilla WoW, do you remember running everywhere until lvl 40? Did that increase your "sense in existing in a world with geography" or just mean that you wasted time traveling. To me, it just increased my "lvling" time, not my enjoyment of the game. I quit looking at the scenery after 10 or so flights\runs.As for anything south of 1000 needles is trash, one man's trash is another's treasure.BTW, Thanks for the feedback on my comments. I can never tell if I'm too grumpy or not. Apparently, on this topic, my grumpiness lvl is toxic.I'm not against seeing everything for the first time so that I can wonder at the size & scope of the game, but come on - 400 flights over the same terrain is just too much.
