Bitter Relations Edit

According to the Argent fleet, the crusades' ships were ambushed while sailing off the coast of Dragonblight by the Scarlet fleet. By Scarlet account, the Argent's vessels blockaded the coast line in an aggressive effort to prevent the Scarlets from setting foot in Northrend. Feeling their Holy work obstructed, the Scarlet commanders ordered their broadsides to open-fire upon the Argent ships, resulting in a bloody and horrifying naval engagement claiming mass causality to both man and ship. After many grueling hours of fighting, both sides backed down, thus ending the skirmish for good.
