The Sunwell Lore: M’uru and the Blood Knights’ Pledge to A’dal

M’uru is no longer held hostage in Silvermoon City. When you visit his underground prison, the magisters who used to bind him magically lie on the ground on a haze.  Magister Astalor Bloodsworn says the following: “Kael’thas and his felbloods be damned!  All we’ve worked for is gone, but they’re fools to think we won’t fight back.  Already, Lady Liadrin seeks a new source of power for our order.  We will not be destroyed so easily.

Random conversations between Initiate Emeline and Initiate Colin above the Farstrider Blood Knights headquarter were updated with the betrayal of Kael’thas and his kidnapping of M’uru from Silvermoon City.

Initiate Emeline: It’s gone.  I can’t believe it’s gone.  Who would have thought we’d be betrayed like this?

Initiate Colin: Is … it true, what I’ve heard?  That it was the Sun King himself?  Still, the Blood Knights will endure through this loss. We have no other choice … we must find another source.

Initiate Emeline: I’m quickly tiring of the haughty attitude I receive from those grubby bowslingers outside.

Initiate Colin: They simply fear what they cannot begin to understand.

Initiate Emeline: Matters are so uncertain now that the chamber below is empty …

Initiate Colin: Lady Liadrin is bound to find a way.  She must.

Initiate Emeline: Our neighbors are positively laughable.  Have you seen the way they turn up their noses at us?

Initiate Colin: Who do they think they are?  I know what you mean … they whisper about us when they think we can’t hear them.

Initiate Emeline: The rangers certainly have a high opinion of themselves.

In Shattrath City, Lady Liadrin seeks A’dal …

A’dal: Patience, general. The Light embraces all who enter Shattrath in good faith.  You are welcome in Shattrath, Lady Liadrin.  We have long awaited your arrival.

Lady Liadrin: Thank you for allowing me to speak, A’dal.  I know many of your allies despise me and my knights for our treatment of M’uru. When he was given to us by ‘Prince’ Kael’thas, we believed his power would help us lead our people into a new age.  I’ve come to realize our path was a false one.  We were betrayed by the man we called our prince.  In his lust for power, he sent the felblood to attack us, and spirit M’uru away to the Sunwell.

A’dal: Both our peoples have suffered greatly at the hands of Kael’thas and his agents, Lady Liadrin.  Your people were not the authors of their own fate, but they will die if they do not change. M’uru accepted his role in this long ago, knowing full well what would happen to him. Will you accept your own?

Lady Liadrin: I … I don’t understand.  You—and M’uru—knew all along that this would occur?

A’dal: It wasn’t I who foretold it, but Velen of the Draenei: “Silvery moon, washed in blood. Led astray into the night, armed with sword of broken Light.  Broken, then betrayed by one, standing there bestride the sun.  At darkest hour, redemption comes, in knightly lady sworn to blood.”

Lady Liadrin: I see it clearly now.  I renounce my loyalties to the House of Sunstrider and its false prince.  I pledge the blades of my Blood Knights to the defeat of Kil’jaeden and the restoration of Silvermoon.  We will fight beside you, A’dal.

A’dal: The Shatttered Sun Offensive will surely benefit from the addition of your knights, Lady Liadrin.  The battle for the Sunwell is but the first step on your new path, Lady Liadrin.  Shattrath is open to you and all who follow you.
