- Portals from Ogrimmar and Stormwind to the Dark Portal.
Ok now the zeplin between Ogrimmar and Thunder Bluff is nice, especially since Ally can all hub through Stormwind. Everything else I'm not too thrilled about. Was blizz really losing so many players between lvl20-30 that they needed to do that? Does it really take that long to level? I mean it only took me a week or so to get to lvl 40 on my last alt. And really?!? A portal from Stormwind and Ogrimmar to the Dark Portal. Was it really that hard to take the bird/zeplin?
Blizz really seems to be wanting to fast track any new player (possibly to replace the loss of players recently, summer and otherwise) but will they get the same experience that was originally meant. I mean one of the cool things was getting my first mount and realizing in the process how big Azeroth really is. In all seriousness, mark my words! This will only lead to obesity amongst our younger toons.
