Midwinter Claim World-First Glory of the Pandria Raider2 years ago

Is Your Guild Ready For Heroic Raids?2 years ago
Guilds are currently spoiled for choice when it comes to tackling raids. After conquering Mogu'shan Vaults normal mode, guilds can head on to the Heart of Fear and Terrace of Endless spring, both offering item level 496 gear. Additionally, Heroic Mogu'shan Vaults is another option and it offers up heroic item level 502 gear. When is the best time to start with heroics and which heroic bosses are the easiest?

Taking a look at our World Boss Kill Stats, we can see that the first heroic boss on the list is the first set of bosses in Mogu'shan Vaults - Heroic Stone Guard. Looking at both the achievement rates and average raid item level, Heroic Stone Guard is very similar in difficulty to Garalon normal. So if your guild can kill Heart of Fear's Garalon then they should be ready to take on Heroic Stone Guard.

The next heroic boss on the list is the second encounter in Mogu'shan VaultsHeroic Feng the Accursed. Feng is best attempted once your guild has conquered Grand Empress Shek'zeer, the final boss in Heart of Fear, on normal mode.

After Feng, most guilds are completing all of the normal mode bosses in Terrace of Endless Spring before moving on to the third heroic boss in Mogu'shan Vaults - Heroic Gara'jal.

We hope this has helped with chosing the right time for starting heroics so you can reap the rewards of the higher item level loot.

GuildOx Adds 5.1 Item Upgrades2 years ago
With the recent launch of patch 5.1, we have added support for epic item upgrading to our Loot Rank system.

You will notice that epic items have three versions that will show in the ranks - a non-upgraded item, a +4 ilvl upgrade and a +8 ilvl upgrade. The upgrade items will be denoted with a green up arrow and the level of the upgrade (L1 or L2) in the 'Item Level' cell. The Valor Point upgrade cost is also shown. The item tooltips also show the upgrade level and upgraded stats.

We will run this system as a beta over the new few weeks. Please report any bugs you find in our bug forum.

Coming Soon

* The ability to switch off item upgrades
* Correct detection of upgraded items when importing a character from Battle.net (waiting on a Blizzard API update)
* Justice point upgrade support for rare/blue quality items
* Conquest/Honor point upgrade support for PvP items

New 5.1 Reputation Items Added to Loot Rank2 years ago
Patch 5.1 brings a whole load of new ilvl 496 reputation items - belts, boots, rings and trinkets. These have been added to our Loot Rank system so you can see what upgrade value they have for you. Be sure to select your "Faction" on filter tab to filter out the items from the opposing faction.

You can get started with Loot Rank by selecting your class and spec from the Loot Rank drop-down menu. Then, "load your character" to rank all of your loot upgrades. Easy!
