WotLk Knights of The Ebon Blade Revered to Exalted | The Knights of the Ebon Blade are an organization of renegade death knights. Freed from the grasp of the Lich King during the Battle for Light’s Hope Chapel, they regrouped under the banner of Highlord Darion Mograine, took control of Acherus: The Ebon Hold as their headquarters, and cooperated with the Argent Crusade to defeat Arthas Menethil during the Scourgewar.
After getting their vengeance, the death knights found themselves without a cause and without a home. One by one they trickled into the land of the living in search of a new purpose. They dedicated themselves to the protection of Azeroth, and some of their members rejoined the ranks of the Alliance and Horde, of which they were members before their death against the Scourge.
During the third invasion of the Burning Legion, the death knights and the Lich King Bolvar Fordragon come to an agreement: they will help him get revenge on the Legion, and in return, he will keep the Scourge contained and help them with powerful weapons. The Ebon Blade later fought alongside the other orders, and moved their order hall above the Broken Isles.
At the end of the Fourth War, the Ebon Blade expanded its rank with the heroes who died honorably on the battlefields. After he was defeated by Sylvanas Windrunner who destroyed the Helm of Domination, piercing the veil between Azeroth and the Realm of the Dead, Highlord Bolvar Fordragon took the lead of the Ebon Blade. While they assisted the Alliance, the Horde, and the Argent Crusade during the resurgence of the Scourge, the Knights of the Ebon Blade followed their Highlord in the Shadowlands to stop Zovaal the Jailer.
Since the fall of the Banished One, the death knights returned to Azeroth, focusing their efforts on safeguarding Icecrown Citadel and preventing the Scourge from spreading across Azeroth.
