Plus, this is just going to a specific zone, not travel w/i the zone, so the frequency of this travel method is likely not going to happen more often than normal FP travel that would happen inside a zone itself.

    I'm fairly certain the intent behind this mechanism is to give a sense of distance between these realms and traveling a long distance at 'fast speeds', versus instant portals everywhere. From a technical standpoint as it is on the alpha, it's the same as flying between the same flight path where the scenery on live would still be the same every trip. I guess the most analogous scenario would be flying directly between Hellfire Peninsula and Netherstorm in TBC through the Twisting Nether... and instead of flying through a purple haze with some celestial bodies, you're flying through a light-bending show. While they accomplish the exact same travel, the Shadowlands one is meant to instill a sense of speed and large distance travel.
    Yeah, but this still can be accomplished with 10 seconds of this animation. Just zoom out a little and the player will feel faster already. And the exit from the portal has to be spectacular.

    This now just feels like an endless animated loadingscreen, not long distance travel.

    So long as this only takes a few moments on release this'll be cool and just fine. If not - well, I'll still use it if I have to but I'll be alt-tabbed doing other shit if so.

    First, this is not a loading screen, but it is a flight path. Second, this is mainly used for the first time you go to the zone. There is a section in Oribos that looks to be a portal room for all four areas, so you probably won't even be using these once you get the portal for each zone in Oribos.

    This is actually how I always imagined the Emerald Dream portals back in vanilla ...

    Coming from a Stargate background

    Looks really cool but they need to reduce the travel time.

    I like it, seems very much inspired by Destiny.

    Now THAT is how you animate wings, and flying horses, and create a feel of FLYING!!

    Why? Flight point is the closest thing to it. A SSD has no impact on how fast you travel via FP.

    yeah, ofc, its not dramatic. but i also cant remember that giant shitstorm where ppl complained „replace loading screens“. ofc this was maybe a work of 1-2-3 days. nothing dramatic here. but on the other side: the game has way more serious problems than loading screens. maybe pick up them first ? and yes, its just the gfx team. and maybe a few sw devs for implmnting in engine/game. yeah not dramatic. but i even dont care about loading screens at all and know nobody who do. ppl would be way more happy if they fix classes and do good, high quality game content. so... dont know what to say here. it doesnt matter much, i think. but still/anyway: nobody asked for that.
