As patch 6.0.2. arrives and clears the field for Warlods of Draenor the current gateway between Azeroth and Outland will be closed. One of the best things in World of Warcraft is when big events like this happen and the entire population of a server gathers to celebrate.

So here are a bunch of great screenshots from last night, as various people and from various servers gather and say goodbye to the Burning Crusade's good old green portal.

The Dark Portal may be closing, but that doesn't mean Outland is not accessible anymore. It'll be reachable via the Blasted Lands portals in Stormwind and Orgrimmar.
