A death knight trainer is an NPC that offers death knights the opportunity to train and learn ranks of abilities, including talent-based abilities. The only death knight trainers in World of Warcraft reside in Acherus: The Ebon Hold in the Eastern Plaguelands. This may be rather cumbersome to death knights as most capital cities are far away, however the ability Death Gate can make getting there easier.
Though each of the trainers represent one of the death knight's schools of magic, all abilities can be learned from any of the trainers. With this in mind, the three trainers are found in their own quarter of the Hold. Lady Alistra is teaching initiates about necromancy in the east wing, Amal'thazad is lecturing initiates in the west wing, and Lord Thorval is giving a lesson in the north wing. The color palettes of each area are strong hints at what school is taught there (For example, Lord Thorval's area has a tint of red for Blood).
After the completion of and before the completion of , the trainers are unavailable, as the whole citadel is fighting the Scourge. However, during this time, Highlord Darion Mograine offers adventurers the opportunity to train.
