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 (retail). We are also present on Zandalar Tribe EU in Classic. 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.


Our Raid Groups

The guild sports two raid teams, both raiding two days per week:

Raid Group Raven is our older, established team. They are currently not recruiting, just biding their time, waiting for Castle Nathria to open up, raiding on Wed/Sun from 20:30 to 23:00 (server time).

Usually looking for skilled players that want to balance progress raiding with a social experience, preferably with at least previous heroic experience. Raid Group Raven is offering 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!

Raid Group Phoenix is our new team starting up raiding in Castle Nathria.

They are also looking for skilled, dedicated players with experience to build up their new Thursday/Saturday (19:30-23:00) raids.

RG Phoenix aims to raid mythic as soon as it reaches a stable and skilled group of 20 people and this is a great opportunity to get in from the beginning! For more information contact Pylori via DM on Discord!


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. ;)

Important: Legion and Beyond!


Thanks for everyone's participation in the new guild name poll!

As you can see it resulted in a landslide victory for

<xXx T R C xXx>

Yeah, thanks for that...

But luckily, it was obviously all an APRIL FOOLS! No insane merger! Sorry guys. :D



Exciting News, everyone!

This has been brewing for quite a few months now..

Some of you may have heard the rumours already - It's been hard to keep things under wraps entirely, but we appreciate everyone's discretion so far.

Now however, the suspense is finally over, and we're excited to reveal the beginnings of our grand plans for Legion!

So, it's been over 10 years of The Raven Council, and frankly it's time to change things up a bit. We've had an opportunity for a very special arrangement, that will hopefully expand our horizons and offer new avenues of fun, engagement and competition from the guild.


Here's the big news:

The remnants of three old & majestic Defias guilds are rising from the grave in the form of an almighty guild merger, with us!

Yes that's right - Joining us will be the likes of <Kingsfall>, <Dominion>, and <Stormwind Regiment>.

This merger will bring together top caliber raiders, world-feared PvP champions, and highly respected roleplayers, all under one banner- Ours!



As part of this arrangement we felt it a fair and generous gesture, to take the exciting chance for a change of guild name! We have many solid ideas for names, and our first big objective with this announcement is to bring the task of choosing one, to our loyal guild members! We think it's a great opportunity to pick something fresh, attention grabbing, and relevant to the state of modern World of Warcraft.

Please check out the options above, vote for your favourite and if you have any particularly strong feeling about your choice please explain your reasoning. Some are serious and some are fun, but whatever is voted highest will stick!

Also if you have any brand new suggestions, just post them here and we'll see how people like them.

This is your chance to make history!

13/13 Mythic now! HfC cleared!

So many close wipes, even one at under 1% and then finally the release: tier and expansion are over! And still in the same month that we killed Mannoroth.



Now it's just farming mounts and rankings!

Mannoroth mythic down 12/13 now!

Just Archi mythic left now! Should be easier than Manni.

Xhul'horac mythic down!

And another notch on the board, as we're now shared 2nd on the server!
