Hello. My name is Mike. You might know me from such hits as Twitter and WoW Moviewatch. Adam’s wandering the earth like that guy from Kung Fu, so I’m visiting The Queue today. I hope you folks have some questions about beer… or babies… or something. Oh, we’re doing WoW here? Sure, I can do that.
By the way, that cinematic. I know, right?
Talking about Karazhan, what is the story behind the two gryphons and the instance portal near the top of the tower? We obviously couldn’t get there before flying mounts in old Azeroth. Was it added post Cataclysm or was it always there and simply never used?
Blizzard originally had other plans for Karazhan. You can find plenty of artifacts of these other plans like the super-creepy Karazhan Crypt. So that portal just never got used when those plans failed to come to fruition.
