Dark Portal to Outlands not working

I go to Blasted Lands to farm Rugged Leather. The mobs also drop imperfect draenethyst fragment which starts a repeatable quest that rewards greens which can be good transmogs. So I go to Blasted Lands a lot, and the quickest way for me to get there is to port from Org to Shat, fly to Hellfire Peninsula, and go through the Dark Portal. This is also how I get to points north, such as Blackrock Mountain.

There are other ways for Horde to get to the lower Eastern Kingdoms (zeppelin to Stranglethorn, portal to Twilight Highlands) but I find the Dark Portal very convenient.

Going from Hellfire Peninsula through the Dark Portal to Blasted Lands is working fine for me (thankfully, since I use it regularly). Going from Blasted Lands to Hellfire Peninsula, the Dark Portal doesn’t work for me, like so many others have reported.

If I’ve had Zidormi put me in the present time, the Dark Portal takes me to Warspear. If Zidormi puts me in the past, the Dark Portal isn’t a portal.

The dark portal is also not working for me. I have done all of the required things, such as re-logging, flying through, walking through, sling-shotting myself through it by dismounting before getting to it, and I have even sat in front of it waiting to see if maybe it would apologize for what it is doing or a dark portal attendant would come out and say everything is finally prepared for me on the other side. I did not get the satisfaction that I wanted out of any of these endeavors.

In the time since the very first post in this thread I have been through a divorce, went to trial and gained custody of my son, and was diagnosed with and had three surgeries to remove bladder cancer. While during this same time frame Blizzard could not integrate one minor coding fix to make a portal, that has been there for the past 13 and 3/4th’s years, work again?

Still a bug. 12/18/20.

So we can’t get a response to lag where we can’t play the game…?

Still bugged and it worked for my hunter before this expack dropped. IDK what is wrong but it is annoying to need to travel to a boat then fly 3 zones over to to a weekly Kara mog run

May 1st, annual bump I guess. Can this be fixed, please?
Tried to relog, zone out, walk, fly, all that good stuff.


The portal works from Blasted Lands to Outland (when Zidormi is in the proper phase)
The portal does NOT work from Outland to Blasted Lands.


Portal still does not work in Hellfire Peninsula. Cannot return to the Blasted Lands.

This has been bugged and a blue acknowledged it two years ago–still not fixed.

Small indie dev company.


maybe because they don’t see it as a dire issue that needed to be addressed ASAP, because there’s portals in Stormwind/Orgrimmar that take you to Shattrath, plus a portal to Hellfire Peninsula in at least two cities that can take you directly where you need to or desire to go? :confused:

Where are these portals to Hellfire Peninsula of which you speak?

Pathfinder’s Den in Org: nooope, never has been that I know of.

downstairs room of Pathfinder’s Den: noooope, never has been that I know of.

Cleft of Shadows in Org: used to be, but that hasn’t been there in a few years.

Maybe Ally side has these convenient portals to Hellfire Peninsula? Even if so, this comment completely misses the point: it used to be convenient to go from Blasted Lands to Hellfire Peninsula. Many, many players used to enjoy this convenience and would like to have it back again. If you are already in Blasted Lands and want to go to Hellfire Peninsula, having to go all the way back to Stormwind to take that hypothetical portal wouldn’t really be so convenient after all, now would it.
