How to City Hop Efficiently

World events like Love is in the Air and Pilgrim's Bounty can be exhausting - they ask you to trek across the globe on a daily basis, visiting each of your faction's capital cities in order to maximize your chances of getting whichever event rewards you're after. Without a mage to open portals for you, this might seem like a monumental task, but it's not as difficult as it initially appears.

First of all, it's best to start at one of the faction cities furthest from Stormwind City or Orgrimmar - either Darnassus or Exodar for Alliance or Undercity or Silvermoon City for Horde will work, since each pair has a mechanism to quickly travel to the other city (a portal between Darnassus and Exodar and a teleportation orb between Undercity and Silvermoon). Once you've completed tasks in both cities, take the Portal to Hellfire Peninsula near the portal trainers in any city. Once past the loading screen, you'll find yourself standing right in front of a portal to Stormwind City or Orgrimmar - just turn around and hop through the portal and that's 3 cities down, 1 to go.

From Stormwind or Orgrimmar, make your way to Ironforge or Thunder Bluff. It doesn't matter much whether it's by tram, zepplin, flight master, or hearthing to a Shrine or Ashran and taking the portal to the final city. And if you need to get back to Stormwind or Orgrimmar, the route through the Hellfire Peninsula portals is always open.
