One thing that feel that was a missed opportunity in WotLK was seeing Dalaran actually relocate from Alterac to it's current position in Northrend (I was hoping to see it as part of the WotLK intro movie). I would definately like to be able to go up to a Kirin Tor mage who tells me about why Dalaran moved and then show me in a 'vision' it actually moving. Maybe it could involve Malygos and his Draginflight attacking old-location-Dalaran causing the mages to make the decission to move the city. Obviously seeing the city itself raised out of the ground would be visually striking. I'm sure Blizz have some plans for future in-game movies but it would be great if they were able to go back and re-create other scenes that were only described in text.

Now that you mention it, yeah, that would've been cool. Kinda wish I'd been in the area the day they decided to take off. "We're just relocating the city, nobody panic."

I agree with this so much. I really thought (and hoped!) we'd actually -see- Dalaran moving or have a little event explaining things at the crater or . . .something. Not just a "hey, Dalaran is in Northrend now by the way." Really my only disappointment about the xpac so far.

Not much different than the "Hey, we've been invading Northrend for a while, which is why we have all these keeps and such built in so short a time...too bad you weren't here to help" that already exists in Northrend.I really don't think they were nearly as ambitious with the phasing tech as they could have been. Not by a long, long shot.

I could see this vision being a new COT instance.
