What's the difference between Demonic gateway and demonic circle? managing 2 different portals is going to confuse me at times I don't have time to think "Okay, I'm currently being ganked...should I use portal A to go to B, or C to go to D?"
-_- Or am I not reading the spell right?
Gateway doesn't work like portal AT ALL.

Ahh...well I guess I should just wait till I get it before saying so :p the description just makes it sound like that.
Demonic Circle is your personal portal that only you can use, you can use it to port out of LoS, or up to a higher place if that's where you left it, etc.

Demonic Gateway can only be placed in your LoS, accumulates one use every 10(?) seconds, and can be used by all party/raid members, and does not require a button-press to use, just simply walk into it and you get thrown to the other gateway.
The difference is that Demonic Portal is a hell of a lot more useful. Blizzard specifically prevented it from doing any of the things that would have made it useful in a raid.

Also has fade effect. Do not have your tank fly through it.

lol this sounds like a bad experience for you.
I like to place mine on top of bosses. It's fun. Dungeons tend to get boring.

But yeah, portal is useful for you, gateway is useful for your raid. Only 5 people can use it (assuming you have it fully charged), but it'd be good for fights where you have to move across large areas quickly, since not all classes have speed boosts or leaps etc. to get them there faster.
gateway also has the potential to give you a VERY good way to escape melee when playing defensively in a bg.... sadly most people lack the mental capacity to play defensively..
