What does this page do?
This page imports the characters
name, race, class and level for all characters in the WoW Armory for
your guild. It can also be used to keep the level of the characters up
to date. It will also import gear and stats for all characters. More
information is available in the Armory Import FAQ.
To keep Blizzard from blocking us we have to pause for about 1 second
between each character request. We have ways to speed this up slightly,
but a large guild can take 5 minutes or more to import. We appreciate
your patience as it's worth the wait.
Form Field Explanations
- Guild Name: This
value will not be stored for future updates. If your guild name on the
site is different from the guild name on the Armory you will need to
change this value for the import to run. It will need to be reentered on
the next update. (This can be changed on the Admin Menu -> Games -> Games Played area of your site.)
- Server Name: This shows you which server will be used to get data from the Armory. (Like your guild name, this can be changed on the Admin Menu -> Games -> Games Played area of your site.)
- Synchronize Roster w/ Armory: If
checked, this will permanently delete any unclaimed characters in your
guild that are not found in the WoW Armory. Only check this checkbox if
you wish to have these characters deleted, as they cannot be recovered.
- Synchronize Ranks w/ Armory: Checking this option will assign ranks to your characters from the Armory.
- Import Character Gear and Stats: Unselecting
this option will make the import quicker and will update the characters
in the guild and their levels, but will not import the character's gear
This option can take a long time. For guilds with 300+ characters it can take as much as seven or eight minutes to complete.
Having Update Problems?
in mind that Blizzard can take a few days to update guild data. If your
guild is a recently created guild or has recently added or removed
characters it can take multiple days for the import to begin to work.
can change the guild name in the textbox above if the name is different
in the armory, such as different spacing or special characters. Only
modify this textbox if your guild info will not update. This value must
be URL Encoded! If it is not URL Encoded, the update will fail. To get
this value find your guild name in an armory search then copy out
everything between the 'n=' and the '&p'. It will look pretty much
just like your guild name with some extra characters in it. Only do this
if you are having problems with your guild roster updating, otherwise
do nothing with this textbox.
