Quest:Where Kings Walk
55 (Requires 55)
You are now, and forever will be, a Knight of the Ebon Blade, <name>, but know this: you were once a hero of the Alliance.
<Darion stares at you.>
This order must establish allies for itself if it is to survive. You must represent the Knights of the Ebon Blade to the Alliance.
On the platform, southeast of me, is a portal to Stormwind City. Take this letter, given to me on your behalf by Lord Fordring, and deliver it to King Anduin Wrynn. Use the portal.
- The only reason that you still live is because of my curiosity.
You have mere moments to live.
<Anduin stares off into the distance.>
Indeed old friend... Blood and honor.
<Anduin affixes his gaze upon you.>
Were it not for this letter from Tirion, you would be in irons. Only an endorsement from one of the greatest paladins to ever live could have ensured your survival.
GLORY TO THE ALLIANCE!
In the manga World of Warcraft: Death Knight, Thassarian was the one to deliver Tirion's letter.
Players will find themselves outside the gates of a very unfriendly Stormwind, even squirrels cower in fear. Any and all NPCs will show their displeasure and call for a rope or spit or throw rotten food. Varian Wrynn himself warns players that they have seconds to live due to his curiosity before they hand him Fordring's letter.
- King Varian Wrynn yells: People of Stormwind! Citizens of the Alliance! Your king speaks!
- King Varian Wrynn yells: Today marks the first of many defeats for the Scourge! Death knights, once in service of the Lich King, have broken free of his grasp and formed a new alliance against his tyranny!
- King Varian Wrynn yells: You will welcome these former heroes of the Alliance and treat them with the respect that you would give any ally of Stormwind!
- King Varian Wrynn yells: Glory to the Alliance!
- Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): The quest is now turned in to Anduin Wrynn rather than Varian Wrynn. The related texts have been updated accordingly.
- Patch 3.0.2 (2008-10-14): Added.
