Saints of the True Covenantis a multi-MMORPG guild with a 19-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 March WOW meeting. Thank you all for attending this meeting. We're getting closer to 7.2 with changes on the PTR. The raiding has been going well, more about that in a bit. There's been a little decrease in the Mythic dungeons with Ilythion and Q not around as much. I'd like to continue doing them if possible. They are a good source of upgrades and are a nice way to be competitive and work as a team. I hope everyone has been enjoying the Timewalking Dungeons. They are a great reminder of the old content and it's nice to jump in with a guild group to get them done.
I hope that everyone continues grouping together and working to improve their toons for fun and raiding.
We are looking to change to Discord for our voice server. Meetings and raids and groups should try to use Discord. If you don't have it, please download. Our Mumble server is up mid April and Discord will save the guild money as it is a free service. It has a fairly straightforward setup and hopefully we'll get the permissions all straightened out. Please look for the information to join Discord in-game. We will try to post the information on the website soon.

The raid team has been doing well in the Nighthold raid. We've been able to down 8 bosses on Normal and 2 bosses on Heroic and are starting to work on the hardest bosses of the Raid in Normal and push ourselves on Heroic for more upgrades. Please make sure to watch the videos in preparation for the fights. Jleek as raid leader can only explain so much before it's lost on you. Taking the time to watch the fight and taking some notes, make his life and our attempts better. Raiding signups have been great and we've been lucky to have additional flexibility with alt specs who have been able to fill in when we're missing a tank or healer.
Change to Raiding - We are going to start saving a few Alts to the first couple bosses on Normal so that we can skip those bosses in subsequent weeks and work on them only in Heroic for additional upgrades. We are looking to push ourselves on Heroic which will help us with the Normal bosses. I would say that we have the first 8 bosses on Normal on farm with Tichondrious and Star Augur pushing us a little still. Saving an alt to skip bosses has been done in previous expansions and helps us to move forward faster to the harder content. Also, we're trying to mix in Heroic level bosses so that people can get upgrades from the bosses we are farming there. I think this provides a nice balance of progression and gives more potential gear upgrades.
The second change is we are going to use one night as a invite only again as we get to the hardest bosses of Normal. This hopefully helps us to learn and improve our strats for the fights. As we did with the Emerald Nightmare and Trial of Valor, we will open up the raid as soon as possible so every get's their kill on Normal of Guldan. Honestly, the hope is that we improve and get far enough on heroic that our improved gear and movement helps us to Guldan on Heroic. This is a working strategy for the raids so please pay attention to the calendar for invites. Also, please do ask Jleek or myself if you have any questions.
Let's continue working hard as a team and improve ourselves and continue to progress and have fun!
Welcome to the February WOW meeting. Thank you all for attending this meeting. Due to my busy work schedule, I could not hold the January meeting. This year, we are holding our Annual March of Memories in this our first meeting of 2017. We take this time to reflect on those that have passed on from this world. This is not limited to Saints and can be about someone important to you in real life. Please don't be shy and share your memories of loved ones with us. This year at the end of the meeting, we will march our meeting location in Stormwind through the Deeprun Tram, to the gates of Iron Forge.
I am pleased to see much nightly activity in game. Whether we are running Mythic+ dungeons or World Quests or leveling another Alt, I see a constant stream of chatter in Guild Chat. This includes great info on recent or upcoming changes, forming groups, or just talking about food. :-) There's more content coming as we continue to tackle the current content. I hope we can continue to have a great number of people as it makes forming groups and just chatting much more enjoyable.
Skori - unfortunately he cannot make it tonight
The raid team has been doing well in the Nighthold raid. We've been able to down 5 bosses and are starting to work on the harder bosses of the Raid. I expect with a bit more attempts, we'll get a few more bosses. Please make sure to watch the videos in preparation for the fights. Jleek as raid leader can only explain so much before it's lost on you. Taking the time to watch the fight and taking some notes, make his life and our attempts better. Raiding signups have been great and we've been lucky to have additional flexibility with alt specs who have been able to fill in when we're missing a tank or healer.
If you're looking to gear up, please think of joining the groups running Mythic+ dungeons. The higher the rating, the higher the base item level you will get. Also, even completing a +10 will net you a likely upgrade. If you aren't sure how the Mythic+ works, you complete a mythic and receive a keystone +2. Then you use that keystone for that specific mythic+ dungeon by putting the keystone in the font. If you complete the mythic+ in time or well before, you can increase your keystone by the number of chests you receive. Often with lower level Mythic+ like +2 and +4, it is possible to 3 chest. Note with increase ratings, you get additional modifiers. Some of those modifiers are harder than others, but a solid group can at a minimum complete a Mythic+10 and even potentially one chest it (like our first guild group did last night).
Feel free to ask in Guild Chat if people are running mythic+ dungeons and advertise your keystone. These upgrades from the Mythic+ dungeons have pushed people's item levels higher the Nighthold raid base item level. Increasing your item level helps not only your performance, but the raid's performance as we are able to push through higher level content. Let's continue to work hard and complete the Nighthold Raid.
As we approach the holiday season, we'll see fluctuating playing schedules as some people head towards family and others have a ton more time to play. Maybe this is the time you get those mythic dungeons you have been waiting for or just grouping with people for the world boss. I know many people are constantly looking to group for content, but it doesn't happen if you don't use Guild Chat and don't pay attention to it. Also, if you get crickets, but you know there's a tank or healer who may want to do something, whisper them. The worse they can say is that they are busy.
There's an upcoming patch 7.1.5 which may shake things up a little. I don't know exactly what is in the Patch, but do note that there are some balancing of classes and other changes. Look out for for information on MMO Champion.
The raid team has completed the Emerald Nightmare on Normal and is continuing to farm Normal bosses and beaten two bosses on Heroic! We continue to improve and progress and hopefully will take down a third boss this week.
I wanted to get a feel for adjusting the raiding schedule so that we still have 2 nights of raiding around the holidays. Christmas and New Years are on Sundays, so I was thinking of either a switch to a Saturday or Monday raid night. Would people be in favor and be available? We'll likely put up invites and see who can potentially attend.
We have instituted a invite only team for the TOV raid currently. We found that some raiders just could not meet the DPS and heals requirements for the raid. The DPS requirement is approximately 175k dps sustained. We post and review the logs to see how people are progressing. As people gain more gear and experience and fill out their artifact trees, they will see an improvement in their DPS and healing. Healing is a little more subjective, but we're finding that having trouble while healing and moving is a big issue for the TOV raid. As I said to the raid team before this was implemented, it was not our ideal way of progressing through a raid, but it became a requirement in order to beat bosses. Emerald Nightmare will continue to be an open raid and we are throwing out ideas to keep raiding as inclusive as we always strive for. I struggle with decisions like this because I try to be inclusive for all raiding. Please feel free to chat with me about it. Please, though, try not to choose a raid night when I am helping to pull together a team. I want to be able to sit in mumble and talk and give you my full attention. I can't do that if I am getting multiple whispers.
I highly encourage asking in guild for mythic and mythic+ dungeons. Guild groups are always forming and it's a great way to potentially upgrade gear and challenge yourself a little. We have several tanks who are looking to go and healers who are trying to improve gear and improve techniques. Please don't be shy and use guild chat.
One last comment. If you signed up for a raid and the invite didn't come because you happened to be logged off at that moment. Please do not sit on the sideline expecting an invite as it turns 8 pm. Actively whisper the raid leader or myself to make sure that it is known you didn't get an invite. I know that it was crazy the other night with lots of people logging in and out and some have gotten missed. We don't want that and it hurts me to find out that someone was logged on but didn't say anything. Please just speak up.
