The Destruction of Dalaran is the end cinematic of the Scourge campaign Path of Damned In this cinematic Archimonde the Defiler disengages from the Twisting Nether and uses a powerful spell to destroy the magic city of Dalaran

(Archimonde draws magic symbols on the ground)Archimonde(on Eredarian language):"Let this scar signify the first blow against the mortal world... From this seal shall arise the doom of men... who, in their arrogance thought to weild out fire as their own... Blindly they built their kingdoms upon stolen knowledge and conceit... Now they shall be consumed by very flame they thought to control..."(Archimonde takes the handful of sand and spilled some of it, the sand figure of Dalaran appears and then Archimonde destroys the sand figure of the Violet Citadel peak, and the real Violet Citadel peak falls, finally he destroys the sand model of the city of Dalaran itself)
