Other than the fact that it takes ~5 seconds to go off, are there any restrictions on which areas or at what times I can create a town portal?

(Maybe I'm just thinking too old-school, but it just feels too convenient if I can do it anywhere and anytime so I feel like I must be missing something here.)

The only other restriction is that you cannot use it during a boss encounter. Other than that, use it as much as you want, whenever you want!
