The assault on Light's Hope Chapel was led by the Ebon Blade in order to raise Tirion Fordring as a death knight to be a part of the Four Horsemen.

During the third invasion of the Burning Legion, the Ebon Blade decides to rebuild the Four Horsemen. With three already recruited, a leader was needed. The Lich King chose the recently fallen Tirion Fordring for this honor. Since the Silver Hand would not give up easily, they launched an attack on Light's Hope Chapel.

The death knights arrived at Light's Hope Chapel and waited outside, planning a distraction. Under the directions of Darion Mograine, the Deathlord went to the crypt under the Chapel and raised an army of ghouls. The ghouls emerged out from the crypt and attacked the Argent Sentries.

With the distraction in place, the Ebon Blade made their way to Light's Hope Chapel. They overpowered Maxwell Tyrosus and made their to the bottom of the Sanctum. Lady Liadrin tried to stop them, but was defeated as well. Just as the Ebon Blade was about to claim Tirion, the Light intervened and burned the surrounded death knights. Not wanting to let the Ebon Blade fall, Darion opened a [Death Gate] for the others to escape. Darion also went through the portal but died from his injuries.[1] Darion was then raised as the fourth and final horseman. With the Four Horsemen assembled, the Knights of the Ebon Blade would be prepared for the war with the Legion.[2]
