He later added, in reponse to another forum user,
The post he responded to here makes a valid point. Were Blizzard to place more portals to Pandaria in other cities such as Ironforge or Undercity, those hubs would see far more use. Certainly, it is reasonable to state that a few moments longer to use an Auction House is no big issue. However, given the choice between an Auction House from which they can portal back to Pandaria, and one from which they cannot, players will likely choose the former. This leads to Stormwind, Orgrimmar and the two Shrines being heavily populated, but other cities remaining empty.
Does this warrant new portals to Pandaria in other cities? Is the change worthwhile? Would players shift their Auction House activity to other locations if they could easily portal back to Pandaria?
