[A] Is contact from Draenor to Stormwind possible?

Post by NicholasBullard (Taph) on Tue Nov 25, 2014 8:16 am

A brief question to clear up some confusion.

I received word that lore-wise, it is in fact possible for those in Draenor to communicate with those back home in Stormwind. Khadgar's portal would be an option for this, along with other mage-related abilities.

Is this also true in our IC roleplay? Could anyone please confirm whether the homefront indeed has not heard any news at all since the majority of roleplayers entered the Dark Portal?

My reasons for asking this are related to the Memorial Service event that is scheduled for the 20th of December. The original setup of that event is "Geez, we're worried, what if they remain lost without a trace forever?"

Any reputable help to confirm or deny this, is very welcome Very Happy thank you!

Cheers
Nick

Server opinion on this is vastly divided and quite frankly a can of worms that really shouldn't be opened.

However, there is a generally held view amongst all groups that contact from Draenor to Azeroth is possible as you mentioned via Khadgar or another highly trained mage.

Things from Stormwind can go through if someone on Draenor casts the spell, but those on Draenor are not in a position where they can go back to Stormwind. Even if they can, as a rule of thumb they won't because their mission on Draenor is too important to turn their back on it to go home.

One way or another the memorial thing is fine. You do have one put to stone to those fallen in Tannan at Stormshield anyway.

I think you should still do memorial as some people will not report by that date and still considered MIA

Clearly it has to be possible to travel back to Stormwind from Draenor. There is in-game evidence to show that it is possible from Stormwind to Draenor, and nothing to suggest that it wouldn't be possible the other way, and that's assuming that you take the static portals as OOC, which there is no reason to do. I would recommend against trying to find excuses for why it is not possible as if it is not possible, we might as well kiss goodbye to any RP events in Stormwind, such as the Stormwind Council. Of course, just because it is possible, doesn't mean people will want to just yet.

There's the Everbloom portal, but if you step inside the Everbloom you risk getting extremely mind-raped by Spores, so there's that.

Stormshield is built by now as it's one of the first things you do on Draenor. The portals there go back and forth. The reason the Dark Portal was such a difficult feat is because 1) it's huge and 2) it's the first connection to an unknown place. As we have portal magi from the various cities in Stormshield, they've created portals to allow you to travel back.

The reason they called this a suicide mission wasn't because all of the characters coming through thought they'd be trapped in time - it was because they were going through a portal not knowing what's on the other side.

Like Raene said, however, I doubt most people would like to travel back just yet for IC and OOC purposes. Everyone wants to make the most of the expansion OOC.

Thank you for your input, commenters.

I'm inclined to go with this. Every now and then the Stormwindians receive short messages from abroad, when someone in Draenor has enough time to spare to update the homeland. This news would probably be received eagerly and spread around the capital in a quick manner.

I'd be interesting though, maybe not at the same time/day but to have one on Draenor too in Stormshield for those fallen in Tanaan jungle.

I think NG is arpeeing that we're not quite at that point yet, where there's portals back and forth--but it's also quite possible that we just don't -know- about it, given our disconnection. Hell we're still back in Shadowmoon, scouting for orcs x) Guilds seem to have mostly gone their own ways on this one so I wouldn't stress over it all that much, the memorial is fine.

Just don't state it either way, imo. On one hand it's fine for those confirmed dead/missing for guilds who established contact, for the ones rping that we can't get home yet, or even contact home, it's a nice memorial TO us Wink

There you go, official word on it. So your ability to get to/from Draenor depend mostly on whether or not you RP somebody with the connections to make it happen.

Currently, IC the Legacy of Aldor are still on Azeroth fighting the Iron Horde. We kind off missed the Dark Portal event that Defias Brotherhood had planned, so saying 'We went with you' is find of .. uninteresting.

Instead, we'll use a chain of event that allows us to create a portal at the "Altar of Sha'tar" as it is there in both world: Outland (Aldor outpost!) and Draenor. So, that should be relatively easier to pierce in time-space than Ashran.

Any thoughts on this?

I think that, because of how unstable it is and the very unknown state of forces in Draenor at the moment, I'de say that its up to people who are in Draenor to open portals. Maybe us Azaroth people can start opening portals when we know whats going on in Draenor.

Also, Metzens answer was great.
