GuildOx is a service that ranks guilds, players, specs and loot from World of Warcraft. It does this quickly and accurately by reading data via the official WoW API. We started in 2007 and have continually been innovating. We were the first service to introduce features such as 10m strict rankings, rankings for guilds based on raid achievements, guild popularity voting, alt detection and an in-game ranking tooltip addon.
About GUILD RANK
How many characters do I need in my guild to qualify for the guild rankings?
You need to have at least 10 characters (of level ten or greater) in a guild to qualify.
How often does GuildOx refresh the guild kills/achievements?
Guilds with at least one raid achievement or boss kill are automatically refreshed around once every 24-72 hours. You can re-submit your guild at any time via the "Add Guild" function and your latest raid kills will be re-assessed within minutes.
How does GuildOx award boss kills/achievements?
GuildOx looks for a minimum of 10 characters in a single raid to earn a kill/achievement. These characters need to earn their first-kill in this raid to qualify. If they have earned their first-kill in a PUG or from a previous guild then they will not be counted.
How can I add my character or guild?
How do the GuildOx rankings work?
Guild rankings is based on three criteria (in this order):
- The highest difficulty of a killed boss (normal, heroic, mythic)
- Killed boss count on that difficulty
- The time of the latest new boss kill (earlier times are better)
How are the guild Battleground Ratings calculated?
To calculate the guild's Battleground Rating, GuildOx takes the average Battleground Rating of the top 10 active guild members. To be considered "active" requires that the player has logged in to the game at least once in the past month and since the last season commenced.
What are the limitations with the world-first and server-first guild ranks for any given achievement?
We crawl all ranked guilds over a period of a few days - this means that there may be guilds that have just earned an achievement but are yet to be crawled and listed by our service. You may notice your rank drops a little for a few days after claiming a boss kill as GuildOx finds some other guilds with similar kills.
How can we show our live guild rankings on our guild web site?
A guild has transfered, disbanded, gone inactive or merged on our realm - can I get the old guild deleted?
GuildOx will automatically remove guilds from the database after a server transfer or when they have less than 15 members. We do not do manual removal of guilds. Be patient and they will be removed after a week or so.
Battle.net is not showing an achievement but we have completed it. Can you do a manual adjustment?
GuildOx relies 100% on the official data from the WoW API. We only take data from the WoW API and make no manual adjustments. If you feel as though the WoW API data is in error then you need to take this up with the team at Blizzard. However, if Battle.net DOES show the achievment, please let us know.
How do I get access to GuildOx guild ranking data to use in my web application?
We provide constantly updated image and text banners with your guild progress you can link to on your guild page. Click on the 'banners' link from your guild page.
We also make guild ranking data available as JSON data using the following URL format (UTF-8 encoded). For an easy way to find the URL, search for your guild page and click on the API link in the header section (or just add /api before /guild in the url).
My web site URL needs changing, how do I do this?
Contact us stating your old URL, your guild name and server and the new URL.
Where can I get the GuildOx addon that shows guild rankings and progress on the player's in-game tooltip?
Download the GuildOx tooltip add-on at Curse.

If you are contacting us about a kill or achievement not showing, please ensure you have manually refreshed your guild using the 'Update Now' option and waited for the scan to complete.
If you can't find your character in our database then be sure to try the 'Add Toon' option in the Tools drop-down menu first.
If you don't want your alts to be known then alt tracking can be disabled by logging into Guildox and clicking "Hide Alts" on one of your characters. Alternatively, you can disable Guildox's alt tracking facility by going into the game, selecting Interface/Display and then checking the "Display Only Character Achievements to Others" setting.
If you are contacting us to have a guild removed as a result of a transfer, merger or disbanding then please note you need to wait for the member numbers to drop below the GuildOx threshold and GuildOx will automatically remove them. Allow a few weeks for this to occur.
GuildOx was originally written by Polar (Polarbeard of Proudmoore-US). A big thanks to him for starting this wonderful site!
