Death Knights of All Races Unite: The Origin of the Knights of the Ebon Blade
The Knights of the Ebon Blade reputation faction hasn’t just been around since you entered Icecrown, it’s been around since Death Knight starting area, the hero class introduced with WotLK. There, the Death Knights were first sent into battle against the living by the Lich King himself, only to be betrayed by him a short time later.
With the help of the paladin Tirion Fordring, the death knights were freed from Arthas’ will and divided into different groups: on the one hand, the two camps, which joined the Alliance and Horde, on the other hand, there were the death knights, who formed their own under Highlord Mograine Faction formed – the Knights of the Ebon Blade. These have become dem Battle against the Lich King prescribed and that’s exactly what most of the quests you have to do for the faction are about.
Farm reputation with the Knights of the Ebon Blade
So that you quickly climb to the maximum reputation level “Exalted”, it is best to rely on one Combination of quests and dungeons. However, in order to efficiently farm reputation in dungeons, you should already have reached level 80. Before that you can do a lot of quests for the knights.
The Knights of the Ebon Blade Quests: Farm reputation in Zul’Drak
First you encounter the Knights of the Ebon Blade in Zul’Drak, home territory of the Drakkari trolls. The Black Watch camp is located there. The quest line begins with the Crusader Lord Lantigna’s quest “In Search of Answers”. You should do the following quests in the camp:
- Orders from Drakuru
- The Black Watch
- Kicking fools and hair curling
While these quests do not earn you reputation with the knights, they do unlock other important quests. You can also get a quest item from the trolls you need to defeat for “Kick a treat and curl your hair”: either “Undead Choker” or “Twitching Choker“. Both start different quest lines, each granting reputation for the Knights of the Ebon Blade.
Once you have completed either the Dress Casually or Ray of Hope quests, Stefan Vardu in the Ebon Watch will give you the quest “As a spy after Voltarus“. This is the start of a short series in which you have to complete various tasks in the necropolis:
- So far so bad
- Hazardous Materials
Finally, the quest “Betrayal” awaits you, in which you Defeat Drakuru must – some will still know the troll from the grizzly hills. This completes the Knights of the Ebon Blade quest line in Zul‘Drak off.
Icecrown and the Vault of Shadows: The base of the Knights of the Ebon Blade
as soon as you reached level 77, you can accept the quests “The Skybreakers” (Alliance) / “Orgrim’s Hammer” (Horde) at the Dalaran Landing Pad. These lead you to the two airships. There you begin the long quest lines for the Knights of the Ebon Blade, which begin with the death knights Thassarian (Alliance) and Koltira Deathweaver (Horde).
The first quest is called “Nothing but fun and games” for both NPCs and guides you to the shadow vault, where you should destroy the eyepiece. That’s the big eye at the top of the building. Then you look at Baron Splitter inside the building. This provides you with further quests:
