- Were you looking for Dalaran floating above the Crystalsong Forest, Northrend or the version of Dalaran that has moved to the Broken Isles?
- This article is about the in-game city over Karazhan. For lore and history of Dalaran, see Dalaran (lore). For the area in the Alterac Mountains, see Dalaran Crater.
Dalaran was moved by Khadgar over Karazhan during the initial Legion Invasions to pursue a clue given by Magni Bronzebeard about where to find answers to the conundrum of closing the vast portal opened by Gul'dan at the Broken Isles allowing the return of the Burning Legion.
While hovering in this temporary location, the city is under full attack by demons of the Legion, so most services are unavailable, but some portals still function and mail service seems be maintained. The city remains over Karazhan until the Council of Six discovers the Pillars of Creation may be found in the Broken Isles, so the city is moved.
