Advancing through the ranks requires a few things. First of all, remaining in good standing with the guild. Attending a certain amount of events. Hosting some of your own. Most notably, you'll need to complete the Trials of Progression for your Division to advance beyond Warbrand. 

Recruits in the Vanguard are typically already accomplished soldiers or warriors in some sense. They were recruited by the Vanguard after being recognized for their prowess.

Dragoons have completed their training and are starting to get accustomed to their Division.

Warbrands are seasoned veterans of the Vanguard. They show their grit during the branding ceremony by holding a burning coal in their bare hand.

Ironguards are exceptional soldiers who have successfully completed many difficult missions and trials. They have earned the right to create and wield a masterwork weapon of their own.

A Bael Guard is the best at what they do. They are seen as an expert in their field and can wear a custom uniform to their own specification.

As the war against the vile Naga drags on The Council of Three Hammers expresses their gratitude to the service-dwarves who fought in recent battles with Naga forces, and calls for a moment of silence at sunset to remember the 18 dwarves who laid down their lives. Wreaths will be laid at the Pit of Coals in the Ironforge Military District on Thursday.
