    ^ This.

    I like the city, but not being able to mount in the middle ring is incredibly annoying.
    Stopped mounting entirely once i unlocked Soulshape.

    Why not just let us mount anywhere there? Blizzards hatred towards mounts this expansion is real and is annoying as hell

    Really? Takes you a whole 30 seconds to a minute to get somewhere off you get back from the portal or flight, and it's 'too much travel time'...

    Of course, I can't prove it, but I think Blizzard did this on purpose. No whistle, a lot of no-mount area in Oribos, Less speedspeedspeed out in the world, etc etc. I think they're trying to slow things down a bit (other than M+, it's built around it, so it's an exception) because of all the toxic assholes doing stupid shit to other players in the name of speed and/or efficiency.

    YMMV.

    Edit: I'm laughing my ass off at the people having complete fits about the Maw and mounting...

    And the people coming to the afterlife weren't coming to Oribos, anyway. They were supposed to be 'sorted' there. Even now, they're being dumped into the Maw. The mortals are coming to Oribos, but they're not 'living' there.

    slowing it down is one thing. but walking form the hearthstone to the flightmaster is just annoying. (though how much slower than dazaralor can you get?)

    hs > mount up > can't
    walk to inn exit, hmm is mounting up worth it or should i just keep walking at this point?
    white smoke on your screen for just long enough to be distracting.
    flightmaster is not on minimap, gotto figure out where he is until muscle memory kicks in. (and then ofc everytime you use a different portal its annoying again).

    Edit: I'm laughing my ass off at the people having complete fits about the Maw and mounting...
    i never hear anyone who went night fae complain about it, wonder why that is

    Yeah, if there's someone to blame for some of that, it'll be the people on the yaks and the brutosaurus, sitting on top of NPCs and mailboxes.

    That's the way it's been for the past two expansions. Neither Legion or BFA had an auction house in the expansion area.

    Boralus was a dump. Oribos is far superior.

    Cata and Legion re-used cities, WoD city was literally a construction camp, MoP shrines were more of a building rather than a city.
    Truly big new city was Dazaralor. Oribos is what Dalaran was in WotLK just 5 times bigger. And it's not a city where people are supposed to live btw. It's Arbiters sanctum.
    Oribos has potential, but it can't be called a city in its current state. If it were called "the Eternal Temple" or something and if it weren't marketed as a gathering point for all sorts of traders then I would be much more lenient.

    As for past expansions. Shattrath, both Dalarans, updated Orgrimmar and Stormwind were all believable cities. MoP shrines were just that, shrines, but even they had much more going on to them than Oribos in terms of NPC activity. WoD hubs were temporary military outposts so, while still a disappointment, they played their role just fine.

    This is a consequence of targeting your product at as large an audience as possible. People tend to have different mindsets, different values and interests, and there's nothing wrong with that.

    I dislike Oribos because I prefer to have proper RPG elements in my MMORPGs. The hub may be efficient from a gameplay perspective, but it's not a city or a center of trade activity as it was marketed to be. If anything, Oribos is a hollow temple infested with a group of traders who didn't even have any customers there prior to our arrival.

    Oribos isn't meant to be done great party house
    Eh, I'd say Maldraxxus, Ardenweald and Bastion are "heaven". Maldraxxus seems to be kind of the "valhalla" kind of heaven if one loves fighting and war.

    Maw is hell, yes, but Revendreth is purgatory.
    I did a Necromancer thing. Check it out! All feedback welcome!
    I also did a Bard thing! Questions, comments and ideas, all welcome!

    As many others have said - it is the arbitrary mount restrictions/lack of speed buff as the biggest issue.
    City itself is fine and I have no real complaints.

    We'll have to agree to disagree over that, but don't worry, we can still be friends.

    edit: someone in the thread described Oribos as a lawful neutral waystation. I like that description; that's what it is. A motorway service station where you briefly stop off on your journey to have a pee, buy a bag of toffees and eat a terrible, overpriced burger.

    Why oh why did they put Bastion first in the linear path? I STG just being there puts me to sleep, I can't do the quests at all, 10 minutes in and my eyes are closing. It's just dull asf.

    I hope the other 3 zones are a little bit more interesting, because so far I'm pretty let down.

    Exactly. If there are so many zones where you can't mount up, then at least give us something like this. But personally i would reather like to see more riding-zones in Oribos. The issue is especially there since you can't see where the riding-spaces are and the non-riding on; since everything is inside

    it was never "marketed" as a center of trade. It's the literal hub for all the souls in the universe, what market do you need there? LMAO one of the 1st quests in Oribos literally tells you that the brokers set up shops FOR US, nothing else.
    You don't understand. Having an unpayed full time job that no one appreciates is the magic of classic.

    It's about the journey. The journey into depression. The journey of running a daycare full of middle-aged alcoholics ignoring their SOs and avoiding social engagements to fulfill something they wanted 15 years ago before everyone realized it's not hard at all.

    I like Oribos because the layout is simple (the big circle like Ironforge and Dalaran.) While Boralus and Dazar'alor where certainly much more fleshed out cities, both were a pain to get around and find anything in (especially Dazar'alor before flying mounts). Even after two years, I was still asking guards for directions for things I didn't use on a regular basis. Anyway, with the Covenant halls, a central hub city isn't as important anyway. Once I hit max level I've spent little time in Oribos except for using that travel hub and an occaisonal visit to the profession trainers.

    Overall I like Oribos and find it so much easier to navigate than Boralus was, in terms of learning where things are.
    The no mount thing is indeed very annoying though, and is a huge minus.

    Yes, it was.

    Its bad enough not being able to mount in throgast, but in the main city aswell? Thats annoying af.

    Also, whos brilliant idea was it to place the mailbox so fucking far away from the auciton house?

    Ah well, we have mvp players with long boi standing next to the mailbox solving the problems but still...
    None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are.
