Can Everybody Quit Talking About Portals Now?

Deathwing comes, destroys half the world, makes enormous changes to the game that we have played for all these years, and the biggest topic on everyone’s mind is… portals.

How disappointing.

To all the complainers:

Its a mild inconvenience for the next couple of weeks, assuming that you are still actually doing anything in Northrend.  If you, like so many of us, are spending your online time reading Trade chat in Dalaran, then this has had no effect on your life.  After December 7th you’re going to spend all of your time in Azeroth and the new zones anyway, so the missing portals in Dalaran and Shattrath will be almost a non-issue.  I understand your reaction, but try to look past the present and see the long term view.

To the people complaining about the complainers:

You sound like grandparents.  Every time one of you writes “When I played we didn’t get our first mount until level 40!” you sound outdated.  That’s no different that saying “I used to walk to school in the snow” or “In my day we used encyclopedias, not this internet-thing.”  The game has changed, and the Wrath generation has had portals since they started.  Of course they will be annoyed when something is removed.  Try to think about it from their point of view.

    I’m happy and honored to be a grandparent. I can only experience so much whining before it begins to affect my enjoyment of the game 🙂

    another think i hate at the moment is people asking where things are. if you cant track it via the tracking ability or if the guards don’t tell you where it is, then maybe ask in guild before looking like a douche in trade chat for something that might be right in front of your.

    i understand that the guards are pointing to the wrong places for a few things and the tracking ability only gets a few things to track. but use your head a bit too. if its not exactly in that position then maybe have a quick look around yourself and free up trade chat from a stupid comment or two.

    An hour after servers were up, I changed the guild MOD to say “…And no, you cannot fly in Azeroth yet.” At least they were asking in guild, and keeping face somewhat.

    I often see people telling others to use Google to find what they need. I myself use wowhead to find answers to my questions (And often to find questions for others).

    Thing is, lately neither Google nor wowhead have answers. A lot of wowhead’s quests have no comments, and Google usually offers -as results- bug report pages of the same problem one might have.

    It’s a whole new world out there. It sure is confusing sometimes. But also it’s quite fun to explore a “new” world.

      Is this your first expansion? Its always like this. Just wait until you go into your first instance or raid without knowing any strategies. That’s the most fun I have in WoW.

        The caveat to this comment being it is fun when you go into your first raid or instance with a good group. I have been using the random dungeon finder for some of the low dungeons on my new character and people have just been charging in expecting to faceroll the place and then whining about the tank and healer when they get aggro or stand in the aoe and end up dying.
