The two main faction hubs have been updated with portal rooms in Patch 8.1.5. When taking a Mage portal to Stormwind or Orgrimmar, you'll automatically land in one of them. Portal rooms provide access to a variety of zones. Read on for more details!

UPDATE #1: Portals now have an updated appearance as of 8.1.5 Build 29281.

Orgrimmar

Take the first turn on your right at the Gates of Orgrimmar and continue straight until you notice stairs leading down to the Portal Room.

The interior houses 7 portals, various NPCs, and what appears to be a dragon husk of sorts.

Starting from the right, we have portals to:

Dalaran (Crystalsong Forest).

All portals from the Drag were removed with the exception of the Broken Shore portal to Dalaran.

Stormwind

The Alliance Portal Room is located in the Mage Tower and it's bigger than its Horde counterpart.

Once you enter the portal, you'll notice a path leading to a room with Mage and Portal trainers.

There, you can turn left for portals to Ashran, Boralus, and Azsuna, or right, for the remaining four portals.

Does this then mean that Dalaran has relocated to Northrend again in lore, seeing as the latest portal is to Northrend Dalaran and the Legion-zone portal sends you to Aszuna instead?

Nothing like that - it's just you have a Legion Dalaran portal already in the form of your Dalaran Hearthstone, so it wouldn't make much sense to have duplicate means of travelling there.

Horde gets entirely moved around to a new area, but alliance gets an entirely new updated pre-existing area.

Interesting.

those poor mages casting portal spells for life 😞

Could be worse. You could be an old war veteran in the middle of barrens asking people where your wife is, for life. Imagine the harsh heat of the desert and freezing nights. No water either. At least the mages can conjure food if they needed to!
