The Trials of Ascension was, for a period, the way to gain a higher rank within the regiment. For various reasons, the system became obsolete, but here follows how it worked:

The Trials:
#Outrunner
#Sentinel
#Druid
#Huntress
#Priestess
 

The Trials:
In order to ascend as a soldier in the Winterblades, a member must first have participated at a certain amount of meetings and/or battles. She must then contact a Commander or the Lieutenant General and seek permission to commit herself to a trial, which will grant her a new rank in the regiment (Followers who seek to become Outrunners do not need to seek permission, but simply have to complete the trial). After completion, she will present her superiors with what she has done, and will receive a rank ascension. The trials go as follows:


Trial of the Outrunner:
The Follower of the Winterblades must prove herself of being worthy of ascension in the eyes of her superiors and in the eyes of the Warrior Goddess, the Mother Moon: Elune. In order to do this, she must, after having participated at two meetings with either training or battle, embark on a dangerous journey through the forests of Darkshore and retrieve a kal-Elune blossom from the Master's Glaive. But beware, for this journey is not for the weak of heart and will. The Master's Glaive has come under evil hands and is guarded by evil cultists.


Trial of the Sentinel:
The Winterblade Outrunner must prove herself of being worthy of ascension in the eyes of her superiors and in the eyes of the Warrior Goddess, the Mother Moon: Elune. In order to do this, she must, after having participated at six meetings with either training or battle (as an Outrunner), embark alone on a dangerous journey through the forests of Ashenvale and retrieve the skulls of twenty orcs.


Trial of the Druid:
The Winterblade Sentinel must prove himself of being worthy of ascension in the eyes of his superiors and in the eyes of the Guardian of the Forests, the Keeper of Old: Cenarius. In order to do this, he must, after having participated at ten meetings with either training or battle (as a Sentinel), embark on a dangerous journey through the glades of Felwood. There, he will commune with the earth and the spirits of the forest until he is able to free them from the hold of the corruption gripping the earth, cleansing the ground. But beware, for this journey is not for the weak of heart and will for there is a deep and unbeknown corruption beneath the ground that will strike with a vengeance at all who seek to eradicate it. He must then collect a flower to Elune (Purple Lotus), one to Malorne (Silverleaf) and to Cenarius (Dreamfoil). He will bring these flowers and another offering (of his own choice) to Lake Elune'Ara. After he has placed his offerings in the lake to the deities, he too shall bathe in the lake.


Trial of the Huntress:
The Winterblade Sentinel must prove herself of being worthy of ascension in the eyes of her superiors and in the eyes of the Warrior Goddess, the Mother Moon: Elune. In order to do this, she must, after having participated at fifteen meetings with either training or battle (as a Sentinel), embark on a dangerous journey through the forests of Feralas and slay one of the vicious wind-serpents there, ((Kazune)). But beware, for this journey is not for the weak of heart and will for the wind-serpents' talons are sharp and their blood-lust plentiful.


Trial of the Priestess:
The Winterblade Sentinel must prove herself of being worthy of ascension in the eyes of her superiors and in the eyes of the Warrior Goddess, the Mother Moon: Elune. In order to do this, she must, after having participated at fifteen meetings with either training or battle (as a Sentinel), embark on a dangerous journey through the biting blizzards of Winterspring and journey to the Altar of Elune. There, she will meet the tortured spirit of a night elf who has grown restless over the many years of undeath. But beware, for this journey is not for the weak of heart and will, for the spirit has grown restless over many a century, and their vengeance is strong and their strike heavy. She must then gather her fellow soldiers to a meeting where she will present them with a prayer to Elune and give blessings to everyone.
