Wowtrack Update for Legion

Transition to Legion

Wowtrack is transitioning to World of Warcraft: Legion. As part of that transition, we will disable updates on guilds and characters on Monday, August 29, 2016. Updates will resume once Legion has launched in both the EU and the US. If you have any last-minute progress to be noted for patch 6.2, please be sure to manually update your guild and/or character before that point.

Once updates resume, guild rosters will only show characters that have reached the new level cap of 110. Existing characters will reappear on the guild roster once they have reached the new level cap.

As usual, until the progression race starts, we will be ranking guilds by their average item level as they gear up for the race. We are also working on a new metric called PvE Power, and more information on this will follow as we get closer to the start of the race.

Features and Enhancements

We have added support for automatic Twitter posts, and if you are a Twitter user, you may want to use this to let your friends know about your progress in the Legion content.

In addition, we have implemented some quality of life enhancements on the web site: a search field is now available on guild and characters sub pages, and when adding guilds to our index, the realm field is now auto-completing.

For our popular character signatures, we have added support for the highest Mythic+ Dungeon Level reached, and you can choose to include that statistic in your signature. Mythic+ Dungeons are a new PvE progression path introduced with Legion. At this time, our statistic is based on achievements, and thus only levels 2, 5, 10, and 15 are detected.

Finally, we have added a Data API, allowing to request raw guild ranking and progression data from our platform. This is intended for guild websites and the like who want to process and render this data directly. Of course, our responsive HTML plugins continue to be available as well.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our community for suggesting and discussing most of these enhancements. If you have ideas for improving Wowtrack, please continue to let us know.
