For the encounter in the Trial of the Champion, see The Black Knight (tactics).
For the item, see The Black Knight (sword).

The Black Knight can be found near the eastern end of the Argent Tournament Grounds in Icecrown. He is involved in the neutral quest chain starting with Alliance 15 [80] The Black Knight of Westfall? / Horde 15 [80] The Black Knight of Silverpine? and supposedly ending with Neutral 15 [80] The Black Knight's Fall upon reaching the rank of Champion in the Argent Tournament. His mount is named Black Knight's Gryphon, but called the Black War Gryphon when riding it.

The Black Knight returned in patch 3.2.0 as the final boss of the 5-man instance the Trial of the Champion within the Crusaders' Coliseum.[1] In the quests Neutral 15 [80] The Black Knight's Curse and Neutral 15 [80] The Black Knight's Fate, it's revealed that the Cult of the Damned has resurrected the Black Knight into undeath.

He is slain by players upon the field of battle in broad daylight, by one brave hero and bested upon the field of battle before being brought to justice for his crimes.


  • His naming, the naming of his relevant achievements, as well as elements of his encounter, are fairly obvious references to the character of the same name from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
  • He is statistically the most dangerous NPC in the game, in terms of having killed the most players.[citation needed]
