The Argent Vanguard is the main forward base of the Argent Crusade and is located in the Valley of Echoes in Icecrown. Here, Highlord Tirion Fordring, the new Ashbringer, personally leads the valiant forces of the Crusade against the Scourge on their home turf.
Before having completed quests in the area, Argent Crusaders are roaming the Valley of Echoes, fighting with Forgotten Depths Slayers. Some crusaders are bound in webs. Forgotten Depths Ambushers will occasionally pop out of a webbing and attack.
Various NPCs appear at (or move from the Argent Vanguard) a camp at the north end of the Valley of Echoes, just shy of The Breach. While a small group of crusaders guard the Breach from further Scourge invasions.
