A World of Warcraft video featuring the story of Darion Mograine, the Ashbringer, and Tirion Fordring.
The quality of this film and some of the camera angles is not very good, and for that I apologize. This was made during Beta, back before WotLK came out and it was VERY difficult to get a good recording on the beta servers due to the constant flood of people making new DKs and running around, screwing up footage. I had also accidentally left the compression settings to save at half resolution, since I had been saving a lot of stuff for Beta Chronicles.
Perhaps I will re-do this film some day.
This is the event that happens at the end of the death knight quest chain. The Knights of the Ebon Blade - death knights of Acherus - find themselves confronting their past and their future.
Darion killed himself with the Corrupted Ashbringer to free the spirit of his father, Alexandros Mograine. The great sword Ashbringer became corrupt when Alexandros' first son, Renault Morgraine, betrayed and killed his father with the blade. However, he was unable to attune himself to the weapon. Alexandros was resurrected as a death knight, wielding the foul sword. However, when Darion plunged the blade through his heart, he freed his father's spirit and took the curse of undeath upon himself.
Now Darion serves the Lich King Arthas. In an attempt to drive light from the lands, they bring a final assault to Light's Hope Chapel... where the Argent Dawn and the Order of the Silver Hand await them.
Music is from the King Arthur soundtrack: Hold the Ice and All of Them.
