The Purge of Dalaran
During the Purge of Dalaran, Lan'dalock and two Silver Covenant enforcers guarded the entrance to the Violet Hold, where the captured or surrendered Sunreavers were being held. It is possible for Horde heroes to be banished to the hold's entrance by Jaina Proudmoore during Grand Magister Rommath's assault on the city, in which case players will fight and kill Lan'dalock to secure their escape. During the battle, Lan'dalock will summon illusions of the various bosses he once tasked players with defeating during the Wrath of the Lich King era.
Rise of the Thunder King
Archmage Lan'dalock makes an appearance on the Isle of Thunder, making his optional death during the Purge of Dalaran non-canon. He is tasked to dismantle the presence of the Zandalari trolls at Za'Tual.
It is revealed that Lan'dalock had a liaison with Matron Mother Malevolence before he joined the Kirin Tor. The Illidari use this to their advantage and secure his help in breaking into the Black Temple.
Archmage Lan'dalock gives out for , Marks of Honor, or gold.

Notes and trivia
- Lan'dalock has several apprentices.
- During the Burning Crusade beta, there was a hostile blood elf mob named Bloodseer Lan'dalock in Hellfire Peninsula. It was removed before the expansion went live, and its ID was reused for Archmage Lan'dalock in Wrath of the Lich King.
- His name may be a pun on "landlocked," which may be less of a stretch if you consider that he and Archmage Timear were the first quest giver NPCs to be given collision boundaries.
- When engaged by members of the Horde during the Purge of Dalaran, he summons various images of Wrath of the Lich King bosses, such as:
