A Champion Rises concludes the primary quest chain of the Argent Tournament. Upon completion, players will gain access to the Champion-level quests offered by either the Argent Crusade or the Knights of the Ebon Blade, and the conclusion of The Black Knight quest chain, Neutral 15 [80] The Black Knight's Fall.

Players are also afforded the opportunity to repeat the valiant stage of quests with another race to become that faction's champion as well as their own, eventually gaining the privilege of using that race's quartermaster in addition to their own race's.
