The Trials of Promotion are a series of challenges that Crows must complete to gain promotion within The Murder of Crows() after they've reached the 2nd in-guild rank of Cohort. The Trials of Promotion can consist of any challenge Guild Officers deem appropriate. This often consists of performing interviews for those wishing to join The Murder of Crows in the presence of a Guild Officer, battling elite creatures near the Crow's character level, dueling other players in World of Warcraft near the character's level, completing difficult quests, etc. Usually there are three phases to the Trials; one of the mind (usually an interview), one of combat (usually dueling an elite creature), & one of obedience & cunning, such as completing a difficult quest. The trials must be performed in the presence of a Guild Officer for it to count.
