After the battle on the Broken Shore, the Council searched for a warlock who would replace Kanrethad as their sixth member. They tried to open a portal from the sewers of Dalaran, a portal that would take them to one of the Legion's worlds where they could destroy Legion's pressence. The portal took them to a world ruled by Jagganoth the pit lord. Jagganoth took all five members to captivity, and also killed Zelifrax. With the new member escaping with the help of Calydus, they traveled back to Dalaran. The rest of the Council was sent to Mephistroth, excluding Ritssyn who died from his wounds.
