I feel like we should start having a “best route” application like you can use to figure out what busses to take to get across the city. Just enter your faction, current location and destination and it will calculate the fastest route for you.
I suppose we could just quest and hang out with Mages and use their nifty portals.. I suppose it makes them feel important.. them being all “Say my name! I control your portals! Bow down to me!” Seriously, who needs that?
