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. ;)

We've been so active we forgot to give updates!

The guild has been going strong through the last year. New recruits have added to the ranks and melded in great with the older crowd. The activity in dungeons is strong on a weekly basis where players have been helping each other out in all ranges of difficulties.

The guild gathered for the 16th anniversary of The Raven Council in october last year.

A social event was hosted this year where members of the guild got to vote on their favorite guild members in different categories, and several awards was handed out. Thanks to Cellyca and Kreka for hosting!


The raid group has been periodically active to make sure the tradition of getting Ahead of the Curve kept going. Here is a video of the Sylvanas kill in Sanctum of Domination HC:

And a photo of the raiders capturing the kill of the end-boss of the expansion, The Jailer in Sepulcher of the First Ones HC:

Raid Group Raven is making a bit of a dent in Castle Nathria!

After a slow period around Christmas and New Year's raiding picked up again in January and really took off in late February. Last night we added a new boss to our kill list:

Mythic Huntsman Altimor!


We expected a tougher fight than Shriekwing but in classic RG Raven style stumbled into the kill after a handful of tries. Surprising ourselves with a sudden rush of seeming competence! Hooray!

Two weeks ago we did also get a double whammy with:

Mythic Shriekwing



Heroic Sire Denathrius!


Dennis was particularly grueling... but down he went and the feat has been repeated each week since! Go Ravens!

TRC Dueling Invitational

A few months has passed since the launch of the new expansion, Shadowlands. The guild has been very active enjoying all kinds of content and our members have gotten stronger as the expansion has progressed.

To celebrate the efforts of every individual member, the guild invited all members to a dueling competition titled TRC Dueling Invitational, the "RDI"! The tournament was held on the evening 26th of February in the Valley of Kings in Loch Modan.

Twenty members fought off in the tournament, and a few more chose to participate by spectating.




The group stages began. In group A we saw Verania go through with a clean swipe and three victories. Group B was forced to extra matches as Pylori, Takuin and Tsyrius all won two games each, where Takuin drew the longest straw. Group C saw Lanabee go through with a clean swipe and three victories. Group D forced a deciding rematch between Cecil and Taubek, and Taubek came out on top to reach the finals. Group E was a tough one, but after extra matches between Frostie, Arahjin and Aaraleth, the last mentioned headed to the finals.

Few pictures from the Group Stage:





With the group stage concluded, Verania, Takuin, Taubek, Lanabee and Arahjin fought off to determine the semifinals. Lanabee fought well in the matchups, but didn't manage to go further in the competition.


Exciting semifinals awaited next.

Takuin and Arahjin fought off in the first intense semifinal, where the druid emptied it's tank but was unable to beat the paladin. Takuins victory took him to the grand final.

Taubek and Verania fought off just as intensely. A great game saw the two experienced Battleground players make use of most of their classes abilities, and Verania won this evening making him the second finalist.

Before the grand final, Taubek beat Arahjin to secure 3rd place in the tournament. The grand final was next. Out of the 20 who started the tournament only two remained. With over 25 spectators the grand final commenced between Verania and Takuin. With high stakes the combatans fought of valiantly. Pressure was sure there, as Takuin managed to catch the rogue through stealth a few times. However, Verania was well prepared to recover from mistakes and turned the game around late and managed to beat Takuin.

The grand final of The Raven Council's Dueling Invitational saw the guilds new Champion emerge, and all hailed Verania as the winner of the tournament.


Thanks to all guild members who participated in the evenings event.
