With the Lich King defeated, the Argent Blades new goal given by the Argent Crusade was to protect Azeroth from threats such as the Burning Legion, Twilight Hammer and Old God forces, Remaining Scourge forces, and other threats. The Argent Blades went on to fight the Demonic forces of the Burning Legion under the command of the Ravensblood Family who was a corrupt family from Lordaeron, in which the Argent Blades after a series of battles defeated the Ravensblood Forces.
Then a massive Scourge return under the banner of the Shadow Blades under the command of Grand Necromancer Sybolis who claims to be a rival of the Argent Blades launched a bloody war against the Argent Blades when the Argent Blades had its guard down, several early defeats threatened the Argent Blades at the start of the Shadow Blades war, but with the leadership of Sarera Gunrik, Thomas Gunrik, Lord Anatoli Lysandor, Paravela Abernath, Tasmine, Moria Yamina, and a few others turned the tide of the war with the Shadow Blades stunning defeat at Hearthglen and in Lights Hope Chapel led to the Argent Blades and its allies at the time to launch its major offensive against the Shadow Blades that was based in Northrend.
