We're a ridiculously long-standing guild with a lively and welcoming community, on the highly-populated, well-balanced, super-friendly RP-PvP server, Defias Brotherhood EU. The Raven Council's been around since ye olde days of 2005, and we've adapted to all those fancy new expansions and players since then, so this is one guild that almost definitely won't spontaneously combust any time soon.


The guild sports one raid group which raids on Wed/Sun from 20:30 to 23:00 (server time). They are currently not recruiting.

Usually looking for skilled players that want to balance progress raiding with a social experience, preferably with at least previous heroic experience. The raid group offers a friendly, dedicated home for players who lack the time for three-night-a-week raiding.

Their team roster is currently big enough that there will be a waiting period as a social for anyone interested in raiding until a raid spot opens up.

If you are still interested contact Fahranya for more info!


We also hold big welcoming bear huggy arms out to social applicants - we rely on you guys to make the guild a generally active and exciting place to be! And you can still join us for various fun raids. ;)

The great finale of the 15th anniversary weekend

The day everyone had been waiting for finally arrived. After two days of celebration, the guild gathered for the third and final day of The Raven Council's 15th anniversary celebration. It was on the 26th of October 2005 the guild was created. Many years have passed and many stories of our fellowship to be shared.

All members were summoned to gather in Lakeshire for the nights event, the Transmog Competition! But before the competition began, members of the guild shared stories and fond memories of the guild and the personal value when it comes to be part of our great community.

For the competition, the theme was the new expansion "Shadowlands", as new adventures awaits everyone in the upcoming expansion. Judges of the competition were Jimmble, Jingles and Krekandus, who thouroughly inspected every contestant, as the contestants presented their transmog of the evening with a vocal presentation of the idea behind their design.

The participants lined up, and A LOT of great contestants came through, well everyone were lovely in their own way, and lots of laughter came from the vocal presentations! The Judges had to decide their favorites, and three players came out as shared winners, Neinwald, Faunial and Zíbby!

During this part the councillor group promoted Hatchlings to Ravens, and Krekandus to Dark Raven for all his contributions to the guild. By this point the Councillor group announced their secret gift to everyone's favorite gnome Jimmble! A small figurine of his character that will be shipped to his home. We love you Jimmble <3 !


The Raven Council's 15th anniversary celebration had officially come to an end. Members of the guild lingered into the small hours in Lakeshire, sharing stories over brew and food. Thanks to everyone who participated and everyone who makes this community we call The Raven Council, so special and dare to us.

Second evening of 15th anniversary celebrations

The night arrived where the guild would come to crown it's strongest Champion in the great Dueling Tournament of The Raven Councils 15th anniversary celebration.

Members of the guild gathered atop the Terrace of the Makers in Storm Peaks, where the tournament was held. After the brackets were announced Jingles went through the rules of the tournament in which all participants agreed.

The group stage battled out intensely and Aedelwulf, Neinwald, Lamorak and Manatea drew longest to go through to the semifinals.

Aedelwulf, who showed great skills with his daggers in the group stage, won the first semifinal against Neinwald, with a move that incapacitated Neinwalds ace up his sleeve, his army of the dead. In the second semifinal, Manatea fell short to Lamorak who proved to be quite versatile wielding powers of the light.

The final was a best of three between Aedelwulf and Lamorak. Aedelwulf opened strong, winning the first battle. But Lamorak was not ready to give up just yet, and came back strong with a win leading the final into a defining Game 3! Hearts where beating among the spectators as well as the finalists, in a duel where Lamorak came out the winner after a thrilling battle.

Lamorak was therefor crowned Champion of the Dueling Tournament!
