From the video it looks like mesmers can create portals, this will make pvp very interesting --Talons 21:50, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

While I agree, it appears that there is a definite entrance and exit. This could potentially make it easy to set a trap for the mesmer. Time will tell. But as an aside, this talk page is used for discussing the page itself. Should you wish to continue this conversation, I'll recommend it be moved to your talk page.

The obvious question is will people be able to use the seen greatsword skill, which allows movement between two points, as a means to move from ground level to the top of the clocktower and vise-versa on the Battle of Kyhlo map. The follow-up question being, will allies be able to use this area of effect as well. -- Blue Phoenix User Blue Phoenix Phoenix inverted.jpg 03:18, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
But do we even know that in PvP enemies can actually see the portal? Maybe only allies can see it's existence, totally don't know I'll have to ask for my own sake of knowledge later on if it doesn't clarify when officially revealed today98.163.112.129 11:48, 14 December 2011 (UTC)Rss122
While this is true, it may be that the distance between portals is a fixed length. Therefore any tactical team may be able to predict where the exit will be and have a thief or two ready cloaked for a nice ganking. Venom20 User Venom20-icon-0602-sm-black.png 00:43, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
Either way, "the cake is a lie". -- 10:06, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
From the guildwars2guru IRC dev chat "Q Can the teleport portal skill of the Mesmer be used for cross profession combos (like shooting through them to hit enemies in different locations)? Anet No. Only allied team-mates can move through." So it sounds like a yes to allies being able to use the portal, which means you're never going to be quite sure who or how many are going to come out of that portal ;-)
Per the reddit Q&A session the maximum distance between a portal entry and exit is 63 meters. No indication was given as to whether or not there is a limit to the vertical positioning of a portal entry or exit. Guild Wars 3 perhaps 08:11, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
