As I headed into Farstriders Square in Silvermoon City for my regular training, a man approached me. I didn't realize who he was at first, but as he came closer I saw his face. It was "Knight-Lord Bloodvalor," Captain of the Blood Knights. After greeting him, he went straight to the point of why he came.
Drayvock, it is time to prove yourself as an adept in our ranks.
Before a newly-minted adept can be accepted into the ranks of the Blood Knights, he must procure the resources to create our order's most distinctive weapon: The Blood-Tempered Ranseur.
You must also earn the right to wear our order's insignia. When the order was founded a set number were forged and distributed, so each new adept inherits his from a veteran. You insignia will come from a fallen knight who bravely led an assault on Deatholme.

Exercise caution as in all your dealing with demonic powers. You can never tell what might happen when handling such a powerful substance.
I've heard about the Ragefire Chasm underneath the orc capital, Orgimmar. Apparently, the dark forces within are stronger than normal creatures. I decided to find a friend to assist me. I made my way to Orgimmar, passing through the Undercity and to the Zeppelin Tower outside. I asked a goblin when the next Zeppelin to Orgimmar was. He simply pointed to the giant flying machine right outside, and then he went back to his papers. I found a room in the lower deck, and rested until we got to the capital...
