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.

Each encounter should be available at approximately the listed times below for all Public Test Realms.

Flexible Mode Testing July 26-291 years ago
We are going to be unlocking the first wing of Siege of Orgrimmar, Vale of Eternal Sorrows, in Flexible mode over the weekend.

Players with a premade group of between 10 and 25 players can queue using the same interface that you'd use for Dungeons, Scenarios, or LFR. Flexible mode bosses have all the same mechanics as the Normal mode versions, but are otherwise tuned to be more forgiving, and will scale in health and damage output with the number of players in the raid. As you go from a 12-player raid to an 18-player raid, for example, some abilities may affect more targets or hit slightly harder, creatures will have more health, and so forth. Difficulty may currently be slightly higher than our final targets, but we're still working through the details of the group-size scaling.

Please provide specific comments and feedback in the dedicated feedback thread.

GuildOx Recruitment Tips1 years ago
We are in the middle of some turbulent times for guild recruitment but GuildOx can help. Our Looking For Guild (LFG) function provides a place where anyone can set up their guild's recruitment listing via the Options page. It is free and you don't need to be an officer.

Here are some tips for how to get more people to apply to your guild:
  • Choose a punchy, well-written Recruitment Message to summarize your recruitment effort. State your raid times, your guild's mentality (hardcore, casual, mature, etc) and something unique about your raiding experience
  • Be sure to include a link (Guild Recruitment URL) to your guild web site and ensure the URL is set to go straight to your recruitment page to allow people to get straight to the info they need
  • Only check the boxes of classes that you are primarily looking for - avoid selecting all classes since it dilutes your message
  • Increase your guild popularity score by asking your existing guild members to go to your GuildOx guild page and click 5/5 stars - this will attract a higher click rate
  • Ensure your GuildOx guild page URL is set and is accurate (note that this is different to the recruitment link that you set on your options page
  • Be sure to hit "Update" on your options page for guild recruitment regularly - this will move your recruitment listing to the top of the LFG list

Battleground Win-trading RIP1 years ago
Due to popular demand we have implemented a filter to our Rated Battleground rankings to remove players that have been win-trading.

If you have a personal RBG score of 2600+, you will need to have completed 100 battleground matches or your score will be reset to zero. We have been running this for a few days now and it is having a profound effect on the RBG guild ranks and RBG player ranks.

The filter is a simple one and we are investigating how to improve it further. Please join the conversation on our suggestion forum to share your ideas.

PTR Raid Testing Schedule - July 81 years ago
On Monday, July 8, we will continue testing raid encounters in the Siege of Orgrimmar raid. We'll begin with 10-player Normal testing, and then move on to Heroic and then 25-player mode as the PTR cycle progresses.

Each encounter should be available at approximately the listed times below for all Public Test Realms.

Iron Juggernaut - 10 Player Normal
16:00 PDT (19:00 EDT, 01:00 CEST)

As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a beta environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the boss being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.

Loot Rank Update, 10k Complete Heroic Jin'Rokh, For the Alliance Ending1 years ago
Loot Rank Now Even Easier To Use

We have updated our popular Loot Rank system to provide a simple, easy-to-use landing page where you only need to type in your character name and server. The resulting page will show all of your loot upgrades by slot, bonus roll guide, BiS items, top 50 upgrades, gemming and reforging recommendations. Try it today

Heroic Jin'Rokh

Guilds are moving through current raid content at a good rate. According to our world progress stats, over 10,000 guilds have stepped into Heroic Throne of Thunder and killed Heroic Jin'Rokh.

For the Alliance

Our good friends at WoW Insider recently published a reminder to all of us to get the For the Alliance achievement completed before Garrosh disappears in Patch 5.4. Our Popular Achievements rankings show only 24% of players currently have the "For the Alliance" achievement.

Are You Keeping Up With Patch 5.3 Class Talents?

Patch 5.3 brought a fair amount of functional changes to class talents and glyphs. GuildOx scans the top guilds daily and crunches the stats on the most popular talents and glyphs of the top 5% of players. Check out the most popular talents and glyphs to make sure you still have the best talents and glyphs for raiding and PvP.

Seeking your feedback

We are always on the look out for new suggestions on what you would like to see on GuildOx. For example - our friends at Blizzard recently added statistics to the official API. While there is a lot of new data here, I question how much of it is actually useful for player rankings. We would be interested if you would like to see some of this data turn into rankings.

Head on over to our suggestion forum and share your thoughts.
