The Blazing Shields is a heavy military RP based guild on the Alliance side of Defias. It was created on 4-22-2008, and is led both IC and OOC by Falrock Thilliath. It's forums can be found behind this link.
The Blazing Shields had existed for many years before the orcish invasion of Azeroth. Stationed in Darkshire, they fought against the orc onslaught, but were decimated in the defense of their kingdom. Although some soldiers survived, the regiment was deemed inactive, and its remaining forces were distributed amongst other regiments.
The current iteration of the regiment was started by the current commander Falrock Thilliath. The former guard and soldier from The Disciples of Light was already hardened by combat when he was tasked on behalf of the King to reassemble the former regiment and act as its new commander, in charge of the regiments own recruitment and training. The regiment is still recruiting and training new soldiers, and remains stationed in the capital city of Stormwind until full capacity is reached.

- Attack on Darkshire
- Quel'Lithien Rescue Campaign
The regiments' soldiers follow many training sessions aimed on both physical strength, discipline, and combat techniques. However, due to much unrest in the capital, the regiment's soldiers also double as official guards, as ordered by the Stormwind Council.
Despite the regiment not having reached full force yet, it has already seen campaigns and actions, sometimes even against the council's wishes. Once resulting in suspension of the guard rights in disciplinary retribution.
At the moment the regiment is being stationed within Stormwind City's command center in the older part of the city.
