'''Dalaran''' (aka '''Dalaran City''') is a [[magocracy|magocratic]] city-state which is located by the [[Lordamere Lake]] on the [[Alterac Mountains]] shore in the [[Eastern Kingdoms]]. . The [[Kirin Tor]] rule the single city.<ref>{{ref book |author= Rosenberg, Aaron |authorlink= Aaron Rosenberg |title= [[Tides of Darkness]] |isbn= 978-1-4165-3990-2 |pages=73}}</ref> Its inner fortress, the [[Violet Citadel]], has served as the focal point for [[mage (lore)|magi]] and the study of the [[arcane]] throughout [[human]] history. The city-state's national color is violet and its flag is a yellow, possibly golden, eye set against a light purple background.
Dalaran was one of several [[kingdom]]s that emerged as the [[Empire of Arathor]] declined (see [[Seven Kingdoms]] and [[The Seven Kingdoms]]). Long ago, most human magicians lived in [[Strom]]. Many fledgling wizards left the restraining confines of Strom behind and traveled to Dalaran, where they hoped to use their new powers with greater freedom. Wanting a place more suited to extensive use and study of magic, they traveled north to the recently founded city of Dalaran, located in the [[Alterac Mountains]] region. There these magicians used their skills to build up the enchanted spires of Dalaran and reveled in the pursuit of their studies. More wizards followed, and the city became a haven for magi and a center of arcane study. The citizens of Dalaran tolerated the magicians' endeavors and built up a bustling economy under the protection of their magic-using defenders. With the mages of Dalaran protecting the inhabitants who weren't magic-users with powerful protection spells, Dalaran became a decadent, extravagant paradise. Dalaran was also built atop a massive [[ley line]].<ref>{{quest|Ley Energies}}</ref>
This overuse of magic with no proper protection or regulation, though, acted as a beacon for the [[Burning Legion]], luring them back to Azeroth. Demons slipped through the gaps in reality, terrorizing the locals until the ruling [[Magocrats]] were forced to turn to the elves for aid. High Elf wizards quickly realized what had happened and warned that humanity would have to give up magic to subdue the threat completely. The Magocrats, unwilling to sacrifice their power, instead proposed selecting a mortal champion to protect them from the Legion. This Guardian would have access to all their might, and would form a secret defense for the world. The elves agreed and, through the newly formed [[Order of Tirisfal]], provided guidance in the selection. At the same time, the Magocrats sent some of their number to research and catalog all human magic. These wizards became the [[Kirin Tor]].
The Kirin Tor became the city’s ruling power. Dalaran, though not a large city, was a beautiful place of towering spires and glittering streets, and the people there were happy and well protected. The Kirin Tor’s headquarters was the [[Violet Citadel]], an impressive building so named for its stone walls which gave off a faint violet light. The building had many libraries, research chambers, testing rooms, classrooms, meeting alcoves, and bedrooms.
During the [[Second War]], Dalaran entered the [[Alliance of Lordaeron]] in order to help fight the invading [[Horde]]. After the war, [[Teron Gorefiend]] and his [[Death Knight]]s, aided by [[Deathwing]], were able to succcessfully enter Dalaran's [[Arcane vault]] and steal the [[Eye of Dalaran]] from it.
Later, Dalaran found itself powerless to stop [[Prince Arthas]] and his forces when he led the [[Scourge]] through [[Lordaeron]]. Arthas acquired the spellbook of [[Medivh]], which [[Kel'Thuzad]] utilized to summon [[Archimonde]], who destroyed Dalaran. The city was left in ruins.
Dalaran is split into several inter-faction zones, and 2 faction only zones. These are:
* [[The Violet Citadel]] (Seat of the [[Kirin Tor]] faction.)
** [[Purple Parlor]] (Upper floor and viewing balcony of the [[Violet Citadel]].)
** [[Archmage Vargoth's Retreat]] (Vargoth's bedroom/library somewhere in the Violet Citadel.)
** [[Beer Garden]] (Area located behind [[A Hero's Welcome]])
* [[The Eventide]]
* [[Krasus' Landing]] (Flight master is located here.)
* [[Magus Commerce Exchange]]''' (Main trade district)
* [[Runeweaver Square]] (The city's central plaza.)
** [[Violet Gate]] (Where portals first take you.)
* [[The Legerdemain Lounge]] (Neutral Inn, North-central area)
* [[The Underbelly]] (Sewers below the city.)
** [[Cantrips & Crows]] (The Underbelly tavern and inn.)
** [[Circle of Wills]] (A place for some duel action and PvP fun.)

* There are 12 mailboxes, one outside The Filthy Animal inn and two outside The Legerdemain Lounge inn, two located outside the north bank and one located outside the south bank, one outside the Eastern entrance to [[The Underbelly]], one outside the Alchemy trainer, one in [[Krasus' Landing]], one at the foot of the stairway leading to The Violet Citadel, one outside [[A Hero's Welcome]], and one outside the [[Guild Master]].
* As pointed out from above there are two banks, one located right from the statue of [[Antonidas]] and another located on the other side of Dalaran in [[The Eventide]], to the left of the entrance of [[A Hero's Welcome]]. Although they are both near the faction controlled areas, they are available to both the Alliance and the Horde.
* The well near the [[Magus Commerce Exchange]] is an entrance to the Underbelly, when you jump into it you arrive randomly at one of four possible sites in the Underbelly. Jumping down will not give any fall damage.
* All profession trainers (except [[Fishing]], [[Cooking]] and [[Archaeology]]) are located in the [[Magus Commerce Exchange]].
* All mage trainers are located in the [[Violet Gate]].
