This was one of the only fights I thought, "Well, Demonic Gateway might be useful at least on this one."
Nope. You can't put the gateway down anywhere in the entire room, even on a flat stretch of ground.
Just remove this spell from the game, please.
You can group with a bunch of warlocks and chain your portals together for maximum fun!
Gateway seemed like it might have use in raids from looking at past raids. I would've loved it on Atramedes, or quick spreads on rag or even staghelm. In theory it might've been able to be used for melee to get to a blob faster in yor'sahj, assuming the slight incline wouldn't be a problem (it probably would). Doesn't seem like it'll have use in MV though as of yet. The one possible good thing it can do is drop aggro (I think). This is why it's bad to put it next to a tank trying to tank a boss, however if there's a fight where you're trying to burn the last few %'s off a boss after your tank dies, you can use it to kite a bit (I'm thinking Chimaeron kinda style), assuming you already had it down and didn't waste the cast time plus 15s to get a charge to run through.
Yeah it sucks, but maybe it'll have uses in the next raid, maybe it'll get fixed (1 instant charge and not needing exactly flat ground would be nice at the very least).
i am pretty sure when you port through mobs you can still get hit and aggro, so its not even good for that. correct me if i am wrong, Wrensh.
also tried it in arena just not practical it was more of a nusance than a help, my warrior kept hitting it and getting port back for no reason, such a !@#$ talent.
That would be nice, except it uses heroic leap mechanics and it counts as you moving through them really fast.
So its a good way to travel, sure, but you will get the pack regardless.
Furthermore then your whole group (including tank) will have the faded debuff, which makes things prefer other targets, so i dunno if your tank can even keep threat.
So its a good way to die, I guess?

I put it on bosses in dungeons and watch people die. No seriously. Place your gateway right in front of the boss in a dungeon. Most people have no idea what the portal does yet and are like, "Yay!!! Gatewayyyy, so essitingggg!" Then they run through it over and over and it gets a charge and ports them right to the boss. I've ran like 10~ dungeons so far and have killed 4 - 5 people with it? :)
So, IT IS USEFUL DAMNIT.
Yeah, but if the tank has any sort of awareness whatsoever, he'll move out well before the gateway becomes active.
Or he might just end up moving because something else requires it, or he's one of those tanks that thinks dancing around the mobs makes him take less damage.

Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
Harassing or discriminatory language. This will not be tolerated.
