Music Friday: Dalaran

 

Hello! Let’s all tread together the treacherous path of the final day of the work week joined by some great music!

Blaugust – Day 7

The floating city of mages

With Legion (World of Warcraft‘s next expansion) already announced and a few details out in the wild, the world is once more enraptured with what the world’s most successful MMO will do next; of particular importance is that it’s in a moment in its life where it doesn’t seem to be Blizzard’s top priority anymore, but also it’s coming out from an expansion that wasn’t the success everyone expected it to be (and that’s putting it mildly).

One detail is that the new zone will once again hold the floating city of Dalaran. Home of the Kirin Tor, a powerful group of mages, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen the city in the game. During the days of Wrath of the Lich King (WoW’s second expansion) it was the “hub” where all players, regardless of faction, gathered to prepare for their adventures – thanks to a Sanctuary status that forbid all violence in the zone.

Dalaran’s music was memorable. Amid the frozen wastes and barren wastelands of snow and death, the city floated and provided a civilized respite for adventurers. Shops, halls, banks, inns… everything was in Dalaran. It was almost the geographical center of Northrend, and an important base for all those who would stand against the Lich King.
