Area Lore/Back Story
The Vortex provides a quick way to zip around to popular locales in the realm. However, the convenience that the Vortex provides comes at a cost. Players must be of sufficient level to enter the vortex. The Vortex is populated by Nightmares that are aggressive. Also, as one might imagine, the Vortex is a windy place and players may be tossed to and fro and end up places they did not intend.
Player Provided Information
When navigating in the vortex, down and south are the safest directions. If you get blown around, exit down and south and start over. (If that doesn't work, try one west then down and south again.)
For these directions, the first up gets you into the vortex.
