Our main aim is to provide a website which is directly integrated with Blizzard and other official services easily and automatically with a great user experience. There are other great WoW websites for tracking guilds and rankings, but they are not suitable platforms for generating guild websites and promoting guild informations. Our main focus is to keep everything in touch with World of Warcraft APIs so you can see your guildies instantly when they log in or you can make guild searches or recruitments just by selecting your character.
This website is a totally WoW oriented website. So we are giving all our focus to WoW integrations like Battle.net, WoW Progress, Warcraft Logs, Raider IO etc. Guild data is automatically fetched and updated from official World of Warcraft APIs.
We worked hard to provide a good user experience. Guilds can create a customized page for their needs quickly and add images, create recruitment forms easily.
We also have a social part. You can view players within your guild and if they entered their personal info to their profile you can view them quickly.
So we want to generate a hub for guilds so players can view all information about guild ecosystem and can redirect to Armory, WoWProgress, RaiderIO or any other website from this pages easily.
By logging in with Battle.net account we can identify your account easily and securely. By Battle.net signing you can see other players characters in your guild, ranks, item levels and a lot other stuff or form your guild page easily.
We have implemented official Battle.net login services for our infrastructure so it's %100 percent secure. Because you log-in via Battle.net and enter your credentials to Battle.net page we cannot see or get any of your credentials. What we do here is when you click to login with Battle.net buttons we redirect you to official Blizzard login page. After logging in Blizzard redirects a specific token for our registered platform back to us. We use that token to get some of your informations.
We can get very limited information from Blizzard. We can only get your Battle.Tag, Battle.net id (a specific integer number not a credential) and characters bound to your account. That's all we get! We can't get any other information even if we wanted to.
These login services are called oauth login services. Just like when you login with Facebook to a website/application you make an oauth login and Battle.net login follows the same logic.
What happens behind the mask is, website redirects user to official login page. User logins with credentials and decides to add/not to add permission to the related platform. If everything goes well Battle.net redirects user back with an account specific token. With that token we can get some user info for a brief period of time. After 30 days that token dies so user has to login to Battle.net again to refresh the token if he/she wants to.
This is the basics of an ouath login mechanism. You may check this link for further information if you like.
To form your guild page you have to be guild master on that guild. We want to be sure that GMs are aware of this page. After forming your page you can give other players whichever permission you want.
Other than GMs cannot form guild pages, but you can ask your GM to create the page and give you the permissions on that page.
By creating you page you can promote your guild and allow your guild to be found quickly and very easily. You can create posts, recruitment form, guild events, bind twitch accounts. Your guildies may upload pictures. Your guild progress, logs and roster is automatically fetched. Characters' Raider IO information is also will be fetched in a matter of time after you create your guild page. You can customize your page backgrounds and modules.
Nope, Guilds of WoW is a free service. But you may become a patreon if you like to to support our development.
