For the life of me i can’t see the logical reason of you going back to 6 year old content and removing a quality of life feature which was actively used by many people on daily basis to this day and did not harm anyone other than to deliberately put an even greater rift between you and player base.
Announced portal room is not coming for at least until 8.1.5 and that is month and month away at this point. What kind of vendetta are you people on to? what portals and overall life quality things ever did to harm you?
Pre legion quest portal stones also got slapped with 2hr cooldown. clearly you knew people was using them and you just had to go extra mile to make sure you hit as many people with your stick as possible on your way out.
What harm would it do to just leave those things be as they were. Even if we someday get new portal room. Is it that game changing that you just have to make sure everyone will bind hearthstones to exact location you predicted based of your statistics or else the world as we know it will end?
With all this unwelcoming changes as of late you just push people farther and farther away from this game. It is the little things that hurt the most.
