The story of the DU
Rebirth of the University
When the magical city of Dalaran was destroyed by the demon Archimonde and his Scourge, many institutions became inactive, one of these was the Dalaran University. Although the majority of the remaining scholars and teachers from the University were comissioned to help rebuild the city a number did continue their work in education. One of these was Archmage büyülücüce, who was given the honory title of Headmaster. Once he was appointed, büyülü cüce ordered the creation of the master and apprentice program, a system still used today. The program was the salvation of the University, there were many students without teachers and the program ensured that although there was no physical teaching establishment the students could still be trained.
When büyülücü retired, the position of Headmaster was given to Professor podaydr, a battlemage of the Kirin Tor. podaydr revived the University instantly, opening it's doors to the both Alliance. He immediately set up classes at the town of Ambermill. podaydr continued the traditional approach by forming a University faculty who would teach their students in classrooms and lectures.
War in the North
When the rebuilt city of Dalaran was moved to the icy wastes of Northrend the University moved too. Dalaran had become a neutral state and now allowed the Horde to enter it's walls. podaydr however still reserved the right to decide who may enter the Universiy and made the controversial move to ban some applications from both Alliance and Horde scholars which cause reaction from alliance, as a result he based the University in parts of Silver Enclave and Sunreaver's Sanctuary where it is still found today. Many skilled magi were however tied up in classroom lectures who could have been helping in the field, podaydr then scrapped ninety percent of lectures and ordered the master and apprentice program. Students would now accompany masters by helping them fight the Blue Dragonflight and Scourge whilst learning the vital skills needed. podaydr continued the program after the war and sent many of University personnel back to Azeroth.
University Ranking System
The current ranking system is as follows.
Headmaster: The Headmaster is the Grand Master and appointed Archmagi of the University of Dalaran by the Council of Six. He holds control of the University affairs and can command the DU's political and (if required) military stance of all it's members. Although the Headmaster answers to the Council of Six directly he can still make the final decision on any matter regarding the University.
Deputy Headmaster: The Deputy Headmaster is the Headmasters closest advisor as well as his second in command who manages the University affairs should he be unavailable. The DHM would ultimately take temporary control of the University should the Headmaster unexpectedly disappear or pass away until the Council of Six appoints a new one.
Sage: The Sages of the Inner Circle is the council of the University of Dalaran. These most wizened and powerful wizards are heads of the Universities various sects and departments being masters of their own field. They convene with the Headmaster and discuss the Universities affairs and advise on the best outcome.
Master: Those that have excelled in their specialised fields will be known as Masters. The Masters are the teachers of the University who give lectures and tutor their own apprentice.
Scholar Should a mage wish to remain and work for the University they will become known as Scholars. They will perform research for the University and may be assigned an apprentice to assist with their work.
Graduate Once an apprentice passes the Trial of Spirit they become graduates. Graduates have learnt all forms of magic and are in ready to be considered mages. However they first must pass the final exam, the Trial of the Mage where they will finally be recognised as mages of Dalaran.
Apprentice: The apprentices are the student body of the University who each have their own master who they will learn from and obey. Apprentices must also attend lectures and take exams until they pass the Trial of Spirit.
Initiate: Upon joining the University all applicants are seen as initiates. The initiates are not official members of the University until they pass their Initiation Trials and become apprentices.
The DU Class Structure
There are many classes in World of Warcraft, many of which would not fit well in the DU . We therefore see each class differently within the the University. The classes are split into two groups which are the Spellcasters and the Battlemages.
The spellcasters of the University, those who channel the arcane (and other legal sources) to cast spells upon the enemy from afar.
By focusing the arcane the battlemages can empower their bodies and weapons to battle their enemies in melee.
Please note that this is how your class will be viewed in the University, you can still RP your own class but for some (such as the warlock for example) if you are caught casting illegal magic (Fel, Necromancy) you will be expelled from the University.
University Rules and Requirements
We have a number of rules within the University as listed below.
