Always been on the fence about the auto port to the instance. Like others stated it has its pros and cons. Was like an adventure in it self to get the group together in early WoW so the porting does speed up the idea of doing the instance. I think it takes away from the adventure a little, it bypasses content, that part I hate. Like flying mounts, it makes the ground game look empty with roads less traveled. COH was kinda cool, you had quick ways to get from city to city and quick travel methods to get to the instance door so the wait was not so bad. But on the side of time, I hate waiting on the group member that is AFK mowing the lawn while the others are standing at the door of the instance waiting. So in all honesty, still on the fence with this, I do miss the walking to the instance and using a summon method to port the ones that cant get there but I would rather have the port to instance option to speed up things.
