Now Cory Stockton's back with this, an early look at how Dalaran's layout was designed.
My 1st pass layout of Dalaran for WotLK. Made a few changes along the way, but it came out pretty damn close. #TBT pic.twitter.com/EFwX0hJk5a- Mumper (@mumper) February 28, 2014
It's striking in how familiar it is, and yet places like the Dragon Embassy (later relocated to Wyrmrest Temple), the lack of clearly demarcated Horde and Alliance sections, and the presence of the Violet Citadel as a separate instance definitely set it apart from the Dalaran we ended up with. As always, interesting to see the game that might have been.
