The Silver Covenant is a militant faction of the Kirin Tor. Led by the high elf Vereesa Windrunner, they reject the admission of blood elves into the Kirin Tor. They have joined the Alliance Vanguard, along with the Explorers' League and the main host of the Valiance Expedition, in Northrend. They employ hippogryphs as well. The Horde equivalent of the Silver Covenant are the Sunreavers.
Before Patch 3.1, there was no way to gain reputation with the Silver Covenant. However, now they are the alliance's host of the Argent Tournament and 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. When players reach exalted reputation, they can get a Quel'dorei Steed, Silver Covenant Hippogryph and a Shimmering Wyrmling from the quartermaster, Hiren Loresong.
In Patch 3.3, the champions of the Silver Covenant will 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.
