My Hearthstone is always set to Dalaran. In many ways Dalaran represents what I find so amazing about Warcraft. The charm, the attention to detail, and the mood.

Dalaran used to be the hub of WoW, apparently. I’ve never seen it very busy myself – what with being a pre-Cata baby. The place is still fascinating to me.

Dalaran (aka Dalaran City) is a magocratic city-state which was once located by the Lordamere Lake on the Alterac Mountains shore in the Eastern Kingdoms. With the beginning of the War against the Lich King its leaders, the Kirin Tor, have used their powers to move the city over theCrystalsong Forest in Northrend in order to use it as a front to attack the armies of the Lich King. The Kirin Tor rule the single city. Its inner fortress, the Violet Citadel, has served as the focal point for magi and the study of the arcane throughout human history. The kingdom’s national color is violet and its flag is a yellow, possibly golden, eye set against a light purple background. [WoW Wiki]

Dalaran is very much so the wizard-city it was built to be. There are always new places and items to explore here.
