An Orb of Translocation is a blood red orb crafted by the Blood Elves and used to teleport a player various distances within the world. They are used extensively by the Blood Elves of Quel'Thalas.
There are five connected pairs of orbs in Azeroth and Outland currently known. The first and widely used orb connects Sunfury Spire in Silvermoon City to the Ruins of Lordaeron in the Undercity. This was designed to allow blood elf players to travel to the mainland without having to risk death travelling via the Eastern Plaguelands. Alliance players are unable to make use of this particular orb. Translocation is also used in single buildings to connect from the ground floor to the top, such as Duskwither Spire in Eversong Woods, Falcon Watch in Hellfire Peninsula, the Sun's Reach Sanctum on the Isle of Quel'Danas and Firewing Point in Terokkar Forest.
