My favorite is WoW’s lore explanation to why NPC Mages like Khadgar and Jaina can teleport wherever they like while players only have a few select locations to choose from.
Long story short: It’s against the law to teleport to non-designated places without a special license.
Rule #1: Do not create a portal to anywhere but the designated Kirin Tor drop-off zones. The most dangerous aspect of the portal spell is its vast potential. We realize it’s easy for a mage to create a door to anywhere, so our only way to combat such potentially deadly acts is to make it punishable by death. Special Issue License D-6 permits open portal usage, but is rarely issued.
Jaina got the license. Khadgar got the license. You don’t have the license lol
