World of Warcraft Fan Shares Amazing Concept for In-Game Fast Travel

A World of Warcraft fan creates an amazing concept that upgrades an existing fast travel option while introducing a brand new one to the game.

Highlights

  • A World of Warcraft fan proposes expanding the Deeprun Tram and adding a Horde version called Azeroth Grimrail.
  • The concept includes additional lines and stops that would connect the Deeprun Tram to the Hinterlands.
  • While fans are excited about the idea, it is unlikely that World of Warcraft will implement such a drastic change due to logistical and game design reasons.


A World of Warcraft fan recently shared a concept for an expansion to the Deeprun Tram, as well as the creation of a Grimrail train for the Horde in Kalimdor. This awesome concept would expand on an iconic form of fast travel in World of Warcraft while adding a brand new one to the game.

Fans who have played World of Warcraft since it was first released 19 years ago have probably ridden the Deeprun Tram at least once. This convenient form of fast travel connects Stormwind and Ironforge, and is one of the fastest and safest ways Alliance players can traverse the Eastern Kingdoms before they unlock flying.

Reddit user and World of Warcraft fan Groslem recently shared a clever concept that would take the Deeprun Tram and expand it even further. Using an overhead map of the Eastern Kingdoms, they brought up the idea of adding additional lines and stops to the Deeprun Tram that would have it connect all the way up to the Hinterlands. What’s more, they also made a concept for a Horde version, conceptualized as an Azeroth version of the Grimrail featured in the Warlords of Draenor dungeon.

Many fans were on board with Groslem’s fast travel revamp idea. Doing so would not only provide convenience for low-level players, but also some amazing worldbuilding, especially given World of Warcraft’s underutilized Dragonflight time skip. Others brought up logistical and in-game political problems, and compared the idea to real-life struggles the United States has faced with the construction of its own train systems.

Unfortunately, World of Warcraft probably won’t introduce such a drastic change to the Deeprun Tram in the game. Doing so would require a Cataclysm-level world revamp, which, in light of World of Warcraft’s piecemeal facelifts during the Worldsoul Saga, seems unlikely. Additionally, Dynamic Flying coming to the old world will make the Deeprun Tram even more obsolete than it already is. Even so, fans can always dream of a world where Groslem’s expanded fast travel system would be implemented, and how it would change the game.
