The story of Darion Mograine, the Ashbringer, and Tirion Fordring - the battle for Light's Hope and the forging of the Argent Crusade.
First of all, I really very sincerely apologize for the 400 x 300 resolution. I had meant to film this at full-screen, but had been saving videos at 400 x 300 for my YouTube Beta Chronicles series to save hard drive space and forgot to turn that option off for this event.
Unfortunately, once you complete the quest you can't start the event again! So I sat around for a day, waiting for other death knights to come finish their quest and start the event back up. The side effect of this was that you have a bunch of Three Stooge death knights running around on their horses, jumping all over the NPCs and generally ruining the video. After 4 or 5 failed attempts at getting all the shots I needed, I gave up and just went with the 400 x 300 size. So many apologies for that.
This is the event that happens at the end of the death knight quest chain. The Knights of the Ebon Blade - death knights of Acherus - find themselves confronting their past and their future.
Darion killed himself with the Corrupted Ashbringer to free the spirit of his father, Alexandros Mograine. The great sword Ashbringer became corrupt when Alexandros' first son, Renault Morgraine, betrayed and killed his father with the blade. However, he was unable to attune himself to the weapon. Alexandros was resurrected as a death knight, wielding the foul sword. However, when Darion plunged the blade through his heart, he freed his father's spirit and took the curse of undeath upon himself.
Now Darion serves the Lich King Arthas. In an attempt to drive light from the lands, they bring a final assault to Light's Hope Chapel... where the Argent Dawn and the Order of the Silver Hand await them.
Music is from the King Arthur soundtrack: Hold the Ice and All of Them. Beautiful music that was also a tip of the hat to Martin Falch, who used some of the same themes for the Ashbringer in his masterpiece Tales of the Past 3.
