Once again, I’m writing another walkthrough for a class guide for Blood Elves, due to a huge void in the community, leaving everyone to fend for themselves and piece together the process. Here goes:
First thing of note is that the paladin questline does not begin at level 10, as it does for every other class. It’s a level 12 quest, and it begins with Knight-Lord Bloodvalor in the paladin training room in Silvermoon (89.4,35.5). He sends you to a little island NE of Suncrown Village, called the Isle of Tribulations on a quest called The First Trial. On the island is a small cave with just a few wandering Nebulus Guards. You are to kneel at the brazier, meditating.
Don’t even bother meditating, because in runs Blood Knight Sangrias Stillblade to kill you and see if you are Blood Knight material. Of course I am, as I killed him in about 12 seconds. I returned to Knight-Lord Bloodvalor in SM for more questing fun.
He admits to making me slay Stillblade and sends me to speak to Magister Astalor Bloodsworn below in the hidden chamber below. I couldn’t find a stairway down, so I jumped down the big hole in the floor in the level with the paladin trainers, avoiding the big, floating M’uru that the Blood Elves suck the life out of.
I found the Magister there and he had me fill a ‘Shimmering Vessel’ with the energy of M’uru right there. All you have to do is click the vessel in your bags to finish the quest. Give it back to Bloodsworn and go upstairs (now you’ll find the ramp to the surface) and speak to Bloodvalor again. Bloodvalor sends you to ressurect the very Blood Knight Stillblade that you slayed earlier.
He is in the Silvermoon Inn, which is NOT the inn near the entrance of SM. You need to go to the inn near the Royal Quarters. Upstairs you will find him on the floor, obviously dead. Use the vessel to bring him back to life. Upon doing so, he immediately wants some wine, but you can leave him to his own devices and return to Bloodvalor.
Once you return, he gives you the spell ‘Redemption,’ which brings a dead player back to life with 65 health and 120 mana. Resurrection FTW!!
