[[Patch 3.0.2|Eventually]], the mages were able to lift the whole city from its site, leaving only a [[Dalaran Crater|crater]] in its place. The Kirin Tor decided to move their floating city to [[Northrend]], where they still rule over the reconstructed Dalaran. The Kirin Tor proclaimed themselves [[neutral]] in the conflict between the [[Horde]] and the [[Alliance]], and instead sought to help bridge the gaps between the two factions -- starting with reaching out to [[Quel'Thalas]] for magical support against [[Malygos]], the crazed Aspect of Magic.<ref>''[[In the Shadow of the Sun]]''</ref>

[[Jaina Proudmoore]] urged the Kirin Tor to support [[Theramore]] against the [[Horde]] armies massing at [[Northwatch Hold]]. The council agreed to send mages to help defend the island nation. [[Aethas Sunreaver]] cast the decisive vote in support of Theramore, reasoning that to do nothing would be to implicitly support the Horde's expansionism.

After Jaina Proudmoore discovered that [[Sunreavers]] helped [[Garrosh Hellscream]] steal the [[Divine Bell]] by using Dalaran portals to infiltrate [[Darnassus]], Jaina mobilized the Kirin Tor, [[Alliance]] forces, and the [[Silver Covenant]] to purge the Horde from Dalaran. After which, Jaina pledges the Kirin Tor to the [[Alliance]]. Yet, for game purposes, Dalaran remains unchanged after the questline is completed.

In Patch 5.2 The [[Kirin Tor Offensive]] offer help to the [[Shado-Pan]] order to destroy the united forces of the [[Zandalar Trolls]] and the [[Thunder King]]. Meanwhile Jaina tried to prove to the [[Shado-pan]] while the Alliance's Purpose is to destroy the Thunder King and defend [[Pandaria]], the Horde seeks to claim the Thunder King's power for their own war-effort against the Alliance and the Pandaren (not knowing that, the [[Sunreaver Onslaught]] seeks to use it against [[Garrosh Hellscream]], when the uprising will begin). As the result of this misunderstanding and the betrayal of the [[Sunreavers]], the [[Kirin Tor Offensive]] often confronted with the [[Sunreaver Onslaught]].

Khadgar led an expedition to the alternate [[Draenor]], establishing his mage tower in [[Zangarra]]. Jaina ordered Khadgar to not allow the Horde to step foot on Kirin Tor grounds. Despite this warning, Khadgar worked with both the [[Alliance]] and the [[Horde]] to accomplish his goals on Draenor.
 
 
=== In Legion ===

{{Sectionstub}}
 
Prior to the [[War in the Broken Isles]], Dalaran moves to [[Deadwind Pass]], above [[Kharazan]], to assist in the protection of the Eastern Kingdoms. Khadgar is eager to seize any advantage in the struggle against the Legion and calls for a vote to bring the [[Horde]] back into the Kirin Tor, making his case before the [[Council of Six]] (Archmagi) in Dalaran. Jaina, furious at the Horde following the events of the destruction of Theramore and the fallout of the initial assault of the Broken Shore, decries Khadgar's plan and promises to abandon her role in the leadership of the Kirin Tor if such a plan is implemented. Khadgar calls for a vote, which results in a 4 - 2 outcome in favor of inviting the Horde back into the Kirin Tor (Jaina and Ansirem Runeweaver being the two dissenters). Furious, and despite a plea from Archmage Modera, Jaina leaves Dalaran in hands of Khadgar and the Council of Six, portending the eventual regret that they will face following their decision.{{Fact}}

Before the [[Scourge]] came, any human mage was welcome in [[Dalaran]]. They found peers and a place to stay and to work in peace. Magi with an eye for detail and a strong focus on research were offered membership in the Kirin Tor. This process could take anywhere from a few months to several years — the ruling council did not invite magi until it was sure of their abilities and allegiances. The Kirin Tor became even more cautious about admittance after [[Kel'Thuzad]] defected and took many other magi with him.<ref name="APG 155" />
