(formerly Silver Enclave)
|Base of operations||Wintergarde Keep, Windrunner's Overlook, Silver Covenant Pavilion|

The Silver Covenant is a militant faction of high elves founded and led by Vereesa Windrunner in Dalaran City. They rejected the admission of the blood elves into the Kirin Tor, and have taken it upon themselves to serve as a military deterrent for any potential Horde uprising. The Horde equivalent of the Silver Covenant are the Sunreavers.
During the war against the Lich King, they joined the ranks of the Alliance Vanguard and the 7th Legion, as part of the Valiance Expedition in Northrend. Eventually, after Jaina Proudmoore succeeded Rhonin at the head of the Kirin Tor, they managed to temporarily expel the Sunreavers from the city during the Purge of Dalaran. However, they ended up being reinstated during the third invasion of the Burning Legion, and the covenant pledged itself to the cause of the Unseen Path to fight the Burning Legion.
When the Kirin Tor proclaimed themselves neutral in the conflict between the Horde and the Alliance, and instead sought to help bridge the gaps between the two factions, starting with reaching out to Quel'Thalas for magical support against Malygos, the elven population of the Kirin Tor underwent something of a split: the portion of the elves who converted to the blood elven philosophy took up the name "the Sunreavers", named for their leader, Aethas Sunreaver, the only non-human on the Council of Six at the time who ensured the Horde a sanctuary within the city.
Conversely, the high elven members who opposed the notion of allowing the sin'dorei back into the Kirin Tor's ranks formed the Silver Covenant as a precaution against possible treachery from the Sunreavers. Consequently, the Silver Enclave became the base of operations of the Covenant, and later of the Alliance in Dalaran. Its leader, Vereesa Windrunner, however, held no political sway within the city, thus leading to the blood elves officially being readmitted as members of the Kirin Tor.
Wrath of the Lich King
Please add any available information to this section.
During the war against the Lich King, the Covenant controls the Alliance-exclusive district of the Silver Enclave in the city of Dalaran. The guards they employ are Silver Covenant guardian mages, who expel Horde players once they get too close to the Enclave's outer walls.
During the war against the Lich King, they joined the Alliance Vanguard. Some of them joined the ranks of the 7th Legion as battle mages, now stationed at Wintergarde Keep in the Dragonblight, notably in the arcane sanctum of the fortress with Vas the Unstable as their representative.
They represented the Alliance from the Silver Covenant Pavilion, their base of operations staffed by representatives of each race of the faction, in the Argent Tournament. Later the champions of the Silver Covenant helped fight the forces of the scourge in the Frozen Halls and its Sunreaver counterpart in Dalaran, to restore the magical blade Quel'Delar from its defiled state by the Blood-Queen Lana'thel.
In the wake of the Cataclysm, the Silver Covenant is invited by the Ranger-General of Silvermoon, Halduron Brightwing, to join forces with Vol'jin of the Darkspear tribe against the budding Amani Empire within the city of Zul'Aman.
Mists of Pandaria
During the attack on Theramore Isle, a number of high elves of the Silver Covenant were present to protect the city. After Thalen Songweaver escaped from Theramore, Vereesa led her soldiers to the western part of Dustwallow Marsh.
After Jaina Proudmoore thought that the Sunreavers were the ones who helped Garrosh Hellscream steal the by using Dalaran portals to infiltrate Darnassus, Jaina mobilized the Alliance forces and the Silver Covenant to purge the Horde from Dalaran. While Jaina rounded up the Sunreavers who surrendered peacefully, Vereesa sends Alliance agents to prevent the Sunreavers from escaping and neutralize any Horde insurrections or Sunreaver sympathizers who were aiding and abetting their resistance to incarceration. The Silver Covenant is dispatched into the sewers, where they round up several bewildered Sunreaver citizens. Soon after, the Covenant comes under attack by Grand Magister Rommath, whose assault on the city includes undoing much of the Silver Covenant's attacks underground, in Krasus' Landing, and in the (now Alliance-controlled) Sunreaver's Sanctuary.
Battle for Azeroth
Shortly before the end of the Fourth War, the Silver Covenant participated in the events of the battle at the Gates of Orgrimmar, as high elven ballistae were present during the conflict to support the Alliance in front of the Horde's capital.
During the Scourge resurgence, the Silver Covenant was seen defending their pavilion at the Argent Tournament Grounds in Icecrown. Following the death of Herald Dalora, a Silver Covenant Arcanist opened a direct portal to Stormwind City, connecting the pavilion with the Alliance capital.

Before patch 3.1, there was no way to gain reputation with the Silver Covenant. However, as they are the Alliance's host of the Argent Tournament, reputation can be gained through many quests. Another way of gaining reputation with them is spillover from the Alliance Vanguard and its associated factions (usually by running heroics without a tabard). You will get an average of 7 rep per mob and 125 per boss.
Patch 3.1 introduces daily quests with which players can gather reputation for the Silver Covenant.

- On the expedition isles, Valero is a blue whelp disguised as a high elf wearing the regular Silver Covenant attire.
- Most of the high elf mages in the 7th Legion are faction-tagged as part of the Silver Covenant.
- Since the battlemasters of Wintergrasp were members of the Covenant, the group may have led the efforts of the Alliance to take the battleground.
