Guildox Is Moving!
Guildox now has a brand new look. Over the next few days, we'll be copying the remaining database data to the new server. Until the data has copied, some pages will still show this old site. There is also a reduced functionality on the new site until all data is copied to ensure data integrity.

|GuildOx Maintains the Largest Guild Database||3 years ago|
|We are pleased to announce that we have the largest and most up-to-date guild progress database in the world. Advanced guild sourcing algorithms have resulted in us collecting records for nearly 200,000 WoW guilds. Out of these, GuildOx has tracked over 45,000 guilds to have killed Morchok in Dragon Soul and over 15,000 to have killed him on heroic mode. We currently scan active raiding guilds once every 36-72 hours. These are just some of the many reasons why people choose GuildOx for their progress rankings.
|Dragon Soul Nerfs Inc||3 years ago|
During the scheduled server maintenance on the week of January 31, the Dragon Soul raid will become enveloped by the “Power of the Aspects” spell, reducing the health and damage dealt of all enemies in the raid by 5%. This spell will grow progressively stronger over time to reduce the difficulty and make the encounters more accessible. The spell will affect both normal and Heroic difficulties, but it will not affect the Looking for Raid difficulty.
The spell can also be disabled by talking to Lord Afrasastrasz at the beginning of Dragon Soul, if a raid wishes to attempt the encounters without the aid of the Dragon Aspects.
For those of you who raided in Firelands and/or Icecrown you’re no doubt aware that as time goes on we want to keep people progressing by adjusting the difficulty. For any number of reasons a group may be having difficulty on a specific encounter each week, and our intent in adjusting the content is to ensure the ability to keep progressing, enjoying the content, and gearing up. With Icecrown we progressively buffed the players, and while this slow progression (and ability to opt-out of the buff) were both beneficial, it led to an expectation of your characters power, and once you left the raid you could certainly feel less effective. For Firelands we attempted to fix that by nerfing the content instead of buffing players, but we nerfed the content difficulty all at one time, which was counterproductive for players who really didn’t need as severe a change as we made. With Dragon Soul we’re attempting to do the best of both by having a progressive nerf to the content, keeping player power constant while providing small increases in assistance over a long period of time, as well as allowing players to opt-out of the assistance by speaking to Lord Afrasastrasz.
We hope you continue to enjoy Dragon Soul, and that these changes encourage you to attempt a higher difficulty, or just keep pushing to down that next boss.

|BG Rating Enchancements||3 years ago|
|Toon Battleground Ratings now exclude all players from the rankings if they have not logged into the game since the latest season commenced. This has removed a lot of old Season 10 players from the ranks.|
Additionally, the guild BG ratings are now excluding guilds that do not have at least ten active L85 players.
|The API Now Includes Taiwan Guilds||3 years ago|
|After a patient wait, the Dragon Soul boss kills/achievements are finally available for Taiwan guilds via the official API. The TW guild community can now be ranked accurately. If you are a TW guild then be sure to hit the "Update" link on your guild page to fast-track your ranking.|
|GuildOx Battleground Ratings Explained||3 years ago|
|There is a little confusion over how GuildOx calculates the average battleground ratings so I want to take a moment to explain the process. GuildOx looks at the top 10 rated players of any given guild and takes the average battleground rating of these players and assigns it to the guild. GuildOx will exclude players that have not logged into WoW for more than 2 months. It will also exclude players that have not logged in since the current season commenced. |
To make it easier to see which players are being included in the guild rating calculation, I have added an asterisk (*) to the guild's player list. See an example
