Saints of the True Covenantis a multi-MMORPG guild with a 20-year history (founded in the fall of 1997), and we are in this for the long-term. We started as Saints of the True Cross in Diablo and became Saints of the True Covenant in Ultima Online. Many of our officers and members have been with STC for approaching ten years, and we are proud of this history.
We accept members at all levels, and set no play or attendance requirements. We let you do what you want at your pace so you can play your game. We are not a hardcore raiding guild but we do raid and raid participation is always optional. On nights we are not in a raid we are usually running dungeons, questing, tradeskilling, or just having fun.
You are welcome to poke around the website and learn a bit more about us, drop us a note, or request membership. Many of our members play a variety of games, however, World of Warcraft and Star Wars: The Old Republic are our current Sanctioned Chapters.

Welcome to the October WOW meeting. As the weather starts to turn a bit colder, we're seeing more and more people on consistently. It's great to see so many people asking for a Mythic or Mythic+ group, congratulating on achievements, or just sharing in some silly banter in guild chat. We just concluded the Fishing Tournament and it was a resounding success. We had some significant contributions and unfortunately, some people won't be fishing for a long, long time. Thank you to all that participated. I will be giving away Gold and pets at the conclusion of the meeting. Also of note, Taralom has offered a mount for the second place finisher - Blinq. This is awesome! The guild, specifically the raid team, got a big boost to raiding materials for feasts. We rely on members to assist in providing materials and the Fishing Tournament is a fun way to have a competition, give out prizes, and boost the team spirit. Thank you to Jethaya for organizing and keeping the posts updated. As a note, if you want to contribute to flasks or find yourself with additional mats, please do put them in the guild bank. For the most part, though, keep the mats to current content as Queue did a wonderful job clearing out some very old mats.
On a bit of a serious note, please keep discussions which may be contentious like politics and religion out of guild chat. I don't want to censor anyone, but often these discussions can become aggressive and hurtful even when not intended. Please if you want to discuss, find a private chat channel. We come from many different backgrounds and beliefs and it's easy to offend someone without realizing. By avoiding these discussions in Guild Chat and general chat channels in Discord, it helps to prevent drama.
The raid team has completed 6 of the 8 bosses in Uldir. The raid team is working on Mythrax who is reportedly the hardest boss in the Uldir Raid. You can tell that the raiders have picked up gear improvements as well as adjusted to some of the harder fights. As noted in the opening, the Mythic+ as well as reputation gear can help with upgrades. As noted in last night's raid, the BC team is throwing around working on the first several Heroic bosses. This will require that people review the fights as Heroic often has additional mechanics. Some are trivial, but others are significant. Please watch the fights and come ready to take on the first three heroic bosses in the upcoming weeks. Also, we may be able to skip the first three bosses on Normal if we do succeed in Heroic. This will give more time to work on the harder bosses that can drop gear. What we want to do is focus on upgrading gear through choosing the fights we can put on farm. We'll continue to push ourselves to complete Uldir on Normal, and maybe a few pieces of gear from Heroic will help push us to that.
If we find Heroic level bosses are too hard, we may need to up the item level requirements for Heroic boss runs. We don't like to leave anyone off, but we also want to make sure that we put the raid team in the best position to succeed.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me or another Officer for information.
High Council Discussion:
Q provided information on the Grand Preceptor and High Council's role within STC and the WOW Chapter.
The Grand Preceptor is the final authority in all guild matters. The Grand Preceptor is determined by nomination and vote through the High Council. The Lord Preceptor is determined similarly, although, the members of the game is sometimes asked for their opinion and even a vote may occur. The leadership team is here to provide the structure and support for the members.
High Councilorsare the conscience of STC, and as such represent an advisory panel to both the Grand Preceptor and each game Lord/Lady Preceptor. As such, they act as advisors and hold no hold formal in-game responsibilities unless deemed by the in-game leadership. Each High Councilor serves at the discretion of the High Council as a whole, with each game Lord/Lady Preceptor holding a seat on the High Council by virtue of their in-game position. If a new Lord/Lady Preceptor is an existing High Council member, the Lord/Lady Preceptor will automatically relinquish their existing position on the High Council. If this occurs, the seat may be filled via the normal process for nominating and confirming High Council members. If a Lord/Lady Preceptor steps down from being Lord/Lady Preceptor, they also relinquish their position on the High Council. All High Councilors have an equal vote. Each High Councilor is an officer of the guild, and is expected to support the in-game officer team by demonstrating the attributes that we seek in our membership. Those who serve on the High Council do so because they have shown through long service to the guild, and to her members, that they care about STC, its ideals, and its state of being. High Councilors make themselves available to members who believe their concerns are not being addressed by the in game leadership.
I, Gerhart, provided additional clarification of the HC members role within the WOW Chapter. The HC members in the WOW Chapter have no formal Officer responsibilities, but I have chosen to give the HC members a way to correspond in Officer Chat as well as invite Alts of players and give out additional items from the Guild Bank. This was decided since there is a small Officer Team technically consisting of Gerhart as LP, Q filling the role of Senior Chancellor (second in command), Gerhart as SBC, Jethaya as Lord of Saints, Dzy as Matron of Saints, and SJ, Quwalin, and Cheidierey as Officers. STC is always in need of people who would like to contribute to maintaining the guild.
Welcome to the September WOW meeting. We missed last month's meeting due to scheduling and the expansion release. It's been a blur of a few weeks and so far, the expansion has been fun and we've seen quite a few people logged on nearly every night. I have seen quite a few groups of mythic and mythic+ runs as well as random heroics and expeditions. Please feel free to ask in Guild Chat if you want some company for either a multi-person rare a dungeon. Raiding which I will talk about a bit more later has been good. I'm glad to see people grouping up and hope this continues.
Fishing Tournament - Jeth
Sneedy, Savoken (can't attend), Layla (completed all her quest ), undertones, Dwerkknarr, Lvl80squirtle, Thromper.
Jethaya Raised to LoS (Lord of Saints)
Dzy - Thank for contributions as LoS, will continue to work with Jethaya as MoS (Matron of Saints).
The raid team completed 3 bosses in the first raid and then picked up our 4th boss kill last night. I think once everyone had a bit more time to gear up using both mythics and mythic+, we saw some improvement. Our movement was very, very good and heals and DPS numbers looked solid. I ask that people continue to work on their gear, but I also ask that you do research in advance of the raid. This enables us to do a quick refresher of how we are going to attack the boss and move forward. Less talking, more raiding!
While the intro item level is set to 325, I would suggest no lower than 335 generally for normal raids. With the first 3 bosses fairly in hand, we can help those who are lower than 335 gear up.
Just a note that there are some vacations and people going to be away during the next few weeks. One of these is Jleek, our raid leader and one of our main healers. This may make it a little more difficult, but hopefully we can continue to farm the first 3 to 4 bosses and work on progressing through Normal Uldir.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me or another Officer for information.
Welcome to the July WOW meeting. I can't believe the next meeting will be one week before the expansion. The summer seems to be going by quickly. I know there's been some slow nights, including raids, but I anticipate that there will be a lot more people returning on August 13th at 6 pm. I really haven't read much about the expansion so this will be a surprise for me. There's still a bit of time to get some of those achievements like the Mage Tower and I read about pet battle tokens changing. I'm sure there's many more changes coming, especially that stat squish. I do hope to see all of you online on the 13th and beyond.
Who's going to be playing their same main toons and others a new main?
The raid team continues to work on the heroic bosses in Antorus. With the artifact boost, we continued with a progression on Hasebel. A change in game plan and a solid team of players checked that boss off. I was proud of the team for adjusting and working hard and hope that we can take down a few more bosses before we officially stop raiding. I will keep posting and running raids as long as people show up.
If people are interested in an alternate Raid, there's always Heroic Tomb which we still haven't completed as a guild.
I want to take this moment to thank all who have continued to attend raids and have made it an enjoyable experience. We make mistakes and laugh about deaths and then try to improve. At this point in the expansion, it's a team building experience and that's great for us.
