Assuming you have the Wrath of the Lich King expansion installed, there are several ways to get to Dalaran, assuming you are at least level 71. If you are less than level 71, the options are more limited.
- For all characters
- Ask to join a party with a level 74 mage who knows the Portal: Dalaran spell and portal to Dalaran.
- Ask to join a party with a warlock in Dalaran who will spare a Soul Shard to summon you.
- For level 71 mage characters and other characters above level 74
- Look for the quest The Magical Kingdom of Dalaran being offered by an NPC at a town in Borean Tundra, Howling Fjord, Dragonblight, or Grizzly Hills. Completing this quest will get you portaled to Dalaran.
- For level 72 Horde-only characters
- There is a quest in Dragonblight called Blightbeasts be Damned! that you can get at 72. This quest provides you with a flying mount to kill a few mobs. The area you kill them in (Icemist Village) is close enough to fly into Wintergrasp (or log out while on the flying mount and it will put you at a Wintergrasp graveyard). If you get dismounted, don't worry, you will get a parachute to land safely. Warning, you will be PvP flagged when you enter Wintergrasp. If Horde controls Wintergrasp Fortress you can run to it (northern Wintergrasp) and use the portal to The Violet Hold in Dalaran.
- For level 77 characters
- Assuming you have learned learned expert riding (150) and have a flying mount, you can visit a Cold Weather Flying trainer and just fly to Dalaran above Crystalsong Forest (make sure you go to Krasus' Landing, the circular landing pad).
- Here are the non-Dalaran trainers:
- For level 80 characters
This is only to get back to Dalaran without flying, hearth, portal, or teleportation crystal.
- There are some very expensive Kirin Tor rings available from Harold Winston, a vendor in Dalaran, that allow teleporting to Dalaran.
- Don't forget
Regardless of how you get to Dalaran, you should also:
- Learn the flight path at Krasus' Landing.
- If you are at least level 70, also do the Learning to Leave and Return: the Magical Way quest to access the Teleport to Violet Stand Crystal and Teleport to Dalaran Crystal. The Teleport to Dalaran Crystal is at the Violet Stand in Crystalsong Forest below Dalaran and you can use it get to Dalaran before you learn how to fly (again).
