For those, that just want to go straight to the portal spawn locations, here are the links for each zone, where portals have been found:
How to find it?
The first step to this pretty purple bird is to find a portal called the Edge of Reality. This portal looks like a purplish smoky arch, and can be more or less vibrant and visible, depending from the angle and the location (dark background...). The one I found looked pretty dull and grey, whereas others look a bright white-purple. It can not be targeted directly, but if you mouse over it, the tooltip says Edge of Reality.

One portal is up at a certain time, on a certain server, for a duration of around 3-5 minutes (to be confirmed).
When to find a portal and how often does it spawn?
The best way to find a portal is right after a server reset. From the records most portals either spawn immediately, or about an hour after the reset. Some people say that they had a portal despawn on them and have it respawn at the same place after about an hour, but that might be good luck. Only one portal spawns per server, and if it's taken by a person who came from another server through realm-hopping, then that was it for that server, for a few hours at least.
NEW! It appears 48 hrs is NOT the shortest respawn time (from getting it til it respawns on the same server), a player on Ravencrest (confirmed!) got it after 46 hours 11 minutes. It has also been mentioned that a player have had a 13 hour respawn timer (confirmed!).
What happens when I find one?
Only one player can enter the portal, by clicking on it. He will then be greeted by the message that he is now queued for scenarios.
Then, you enter the actual Edge of Reality and find a dead voidtalon, with an egg that you can loot. That's it :)

Finding a portal through realm-hopping
However, when the player finds a portal through realm-hopping, and he's in a group, he can click the portal but will get an error message saying: "You can't do that while using Premade groups". Luckily, good old Khadgar will send you a mail after around 20 minutes with the mount attached:
What this will do is play a sound (YOU ARE NOT PREPARED!) whenever the tooltip shows "Edge of Reality".
Requires you to position yourself and your cursor in such a way that if the portal spawns your cursor will be over it, showing the tooltip and triggering the sound.
This will not work like npcscan or such in detecting it in your proximity. The cursor must be over the portal.
It can be blocked if someone stands between you and the portal spawn point.
You need to know exactly where the spawn points are. Use the various screenshots for reference.
The portal name is localised for english clients. Change to portal name for your client.
You can now feel safe to look away or tab to another window without glancing back every 10 seconds.
Edit: Updated the macro. Same as before but will also take a screenshot when portal discovered. Understandably people get over excited and forget to take their portal screenshot. This'll help you out.
