Kirin Tor Reputation Guide

Kirin Tor History

Before the Kirin Tor was in existence, mages of all sorts lived in a place called Strom. Hardships were many there and eventually some moved north where the city of Dalaran was created with much help from the high elves. The city eventually became the center of arcane study and a haven for magic users.  The mages used their powers to protect the other residents and to make the city even more glorious. But all was not well.

With no ruling body to control them, the mages casts spells haphazardly and caused tears in the fabric of reality. These tears eventually attracted the Burning Legion, bringing them back to Azeroth. When demons and other things began to slip through these tears and wreck havoc on the city the ruling body of Dalaran, the Magocrats, were forced to once again turn to the elves for help. The Elf mages decreed that in order to stop the threat humanity would have to give up magic. The Magocrats did not agree and instead wanted a mortal champion to protect them that would have access to all of their might. The elves agreed and the newly formed Order of Tirisfal helped to provide guidance in the choice.  The Magocrats sent a few of their number to research and catalog all human magic. These mages would become the Kirin Tor.

The Kirin Tor eventually became the ruling body of the small yet grand city of Dalaran. Their headquarters being the Violet Citadel, which contained many libraries, research chambers, classrooms, and bedrooms. The ruling council of six met in a room with no visible walls, the Chamber of Air. But even the Kirin Tor eventually found themselves unable to stop  Prince Arthas in his advance on Lordaeron.

Arthas gained the spell book of Medivh and Kel’Thuzad used it to summon Archimonde who then destroyed Dalaran. Since Kel’Thuzad was once a part of the Kirin Tor many felt the destruction was deserved and punishment for Kel’Thuzad’s crimes. The Kirin Tor however refused to leave their home and they returned to the ruins. Once they had reclaimed the city they erected a giant purple dome around the city that would destroy anyone so bold as to touch it.

Led by Malygos, the blue dragonflight has recently declared war on all mortal magic users and in response the mages of Dalaran have levitated the city high above Northrend. Dalaran today floats above the Crystalsong Forest as a neutral haven for both Horde and Alliance in direct defiance to the blue dragonflight as well as the forces of the Lich King.

The Tabard of the Kirin Tor can be purchased from the Archmage Alvareaux the Kirin Tor Quartermaster located near the Violet Citadel in Dalaran.
