    But I dont see how this can affect your leveling? Dalaran will still remain as it is during your journey in Northrend. When you reach the current time your character will learn that Dalaran changes into a faction city.

    Yes, its kinda early for us to say it's going to be an Alliance city. Maybe its only Kirin Tor that goes Alliance, but then I doub they would accept most of the Horde presence.
    and its more inconsistent crap that makes the story look like they don't know how to organise things.

    The Blood Elf city could be used. Not the best strategic place but it's something

    But if Dalaran was gone, there would be no obstructions to remake the area with something else.

    They told us in a post that in the pandaren hubs, there will be portals to all cities open, including dalaran and shattrath. So we hear that dalaran is now alliance, but theres a portal to dalaran in the hordes base in pandaria... -_-

    Actually they can do that. You know that there are two other bases in Crystalsong Forest beside Dalaran, right? Sunreaver's Command and Windrunner's overlook are pretty much unused curently. They might be into business as replacement to Dalaran. If Dalaran ever relocates somewhere else in Azeroth (or beyond, you never know!). They could also add a couple of shared things like vendor's and such to the ruins below Dalaran in Crystalsong forest as well.

    Personally i think Dalaran is ready to relocate elsewhere in Azeroth. Maybe on it's old location or maybe close to Kul Tiras if Jaina becomes head of the Kirin Tor.

    Yet they wouldnt NEED to have to do so because having a new Dalaran in the *present* (Pandaria, 2012) doesnt influence old Dalaran in the *past* (Northrend, 2009).

    Go to Dragonblight right now. Are black and twilight dragons attacking Wyrmrest? No, it's the Blues.
    Go to Wyrmrest's basement. Is it tentacle-riddled, with cracks in the wall? Nope! It's a boring old Summon Stone there, not a Sith Lord Pope Benedict.
    Enter the Eye of Eternity. Are Hagara's axes not the only thing you face up close? NO, it's MALYGOS IN THE FACE. >:V

    I'd actually be very surprised if we had an Alliance-only version of Dalaran that acted as an actual town or city. As I said before, my guess is if we see modern Dalaran at all, it'll be in a quest event or scenario.
    Roleplaying, hardcore Raiding, running LFR on the occasional weekend, PvPing, rolling alts, achievement hunting, pet battling, or just enacting an endless series of whims, I don't care how you play WoW. Just as long as you have fun doing it.

    Yeah exactly, Dalaran will NEVER be moved from Northrend, and therefore will never go Alliance only.
    It is the capital of that expansion, and as the expansions taking place in the past/different time zones, they can't just take away the main city and relocate it to somewhere else entirely.
    Dalaran was first able to be moved to Northrend, as it served absolutely NO purpose in the old world, we weren't even able to enter it, it was just a huge glowing shield in the middle of nowhere.

    As for the idea of having 2 Dalarans, that is also highly unlikely, Blizz will never even consider that.

    The quote you all are using to "verify" that Dalaran is going Alliance, isn't stating that in any way!
    He was merely talking about Jaina herself, changing from peace ambassador and Horde-friendly character into a full-support Alliance char, giving up her neutrality after Theramore being blown to pieces.

    That she will someday lead the Kirin Tor, after Rhonin is gone, is an interesting story-arc but it has nothing to do with the Kirin Tor and Dalaran going Alliance-only all of a sudden.
    Rhonin is still there, as far as we know he has nothing to do with anything that is going on with Theramore or Pandaria, so why on Azeroth would he suddenly die; from old age? Hardly.

    Even if Jaina was to lead the Kirin Tor sometime down the road during MoP, she would just have to cope with the Council, and the Sunreavers and Horde presence in Dalaran, revoking all the accomplishments done in the past and it would lead to a huge battle inside of the magocraty(sp?) -- the Kirin Tor are kinda like the Cenarion Circle, or Earthen Ring, where mages (druids, shaman) from both factions work together in a friendly/neutral way, setting all the animosities the faction may have otherwise, aside.

    Okay first things first, Nothing is Confirmed
    Second. the book and Mists arnt out yet
    Third. Changing Dalaran into an Alliance faction would require a replacement for the Horde, ie dailys, vendors, any npc.
    Forth. Jaina may take leadership of Dalaran BUT Dalaran is ruled by the Council of six not 1. 3-4 members are known on this council, 1 of which is a blood elf aligned with the Horde.
    Fifth. blizz want to fix the time issues faced in Bc and wrath, making dalaran in 2 locations will only create further time gaps.
    Sixth. Jaina's rage may only be to garrosh and his Horde, she may still realise Thralls work to build a better Horde, After Baine went to Jaina for help do you really think she'd just go against him? She is out to get Garrosh and whoever follow him, not to destroy the horde completely. Why have the final raid at org if the Alliance arnt going to take the city and slay all the horde members ie women and children if there soo strongly against the Horde. The Final raid is to dethrone garrosh and put a stop to his conquest, not to end the horde.

    A side note, I heard that DW wing would move people from sw/org to spend their time in dalaran instead. Is that the case now, that it's like back in wotlk again?

    Am I the only one who imagined Jaina bringing the whole floating city of Dalaran to Orgrimmar's doorstep to kill Garrosh while reading this thread? This would solve an issue with the last raid: Where to put the final raid's portal (on Dalaran somewhere). Of course that would mean that it's neutral, or that the Horde will have something similar.

    Not sure why you'd call a raid a wing. And no, it hasn't. The only reason why Dalaran would be more alive nowadays, is that it has a portal to Caverns of Time, where the actual "deathwing raid" is located.

    I want you to imagine Jaina piloting Dalaran to land straight ontop of Garrosh's throneroom. With -and this is important- the 'truck backing up' beeping sound.
