You know what every city really needs? A dragon head hanging from the front gate.
It sends a clear message. You are not to be messed with. You have slain a dragon that was terrorizing the countryside and ensured the prosperity of your people for years to come. You are able and willing to fight for your citizens’ protection.
Plus, it adds a nice bit of color.
Trophies like this have always been a fantastic addition, but sometimes you don’t have the will to drag that head up to the top of the columns and chain it up. They’re heavy, they’re messy, they smell like dragon… and honestly, after a long day of dragonslaying, most people want nothing more than to relax at the Goldshire Inn.
Still, having some way of displaying what you’re currently fighting and what you’ve slaughtered in true gamer fashion is impressive. Fortunately, Guild Launch has what you need: the Raid Progression widget!
Adding the Widget
If you want to show off your accomplishments in-game for raiding, all you have to do is place the Raid Progression widget on your site! Click ‘Widgets’ at the top right of your guild site when you’re logged in, and you will be in ‘Widget Mode’. Buttons will appear on the top of each column to add a widget.
Configuring the Widget
From there, it’s a simple matter of clicking the link embedded below and adding the raids (or dungeons – I’m looking at you, Guild Wars 2) to show!
The end result looks something like this:
Clicking that link at the bottom brings you to the Raid Progression menu, which displays every currently raidable-raid (or dungeon) for the game you’re playing. That looks like this:
Just configure the widget to display that raid by clicking ‘Display on Widget? – Yes’ and click which bosses your guild has crushed beneath its heels. Save it at the bottom of the page and it will display in the widget!
Getting New Raids Added
With over 350 games in the system, we are constantly adding things to the system to make sure everything is up-to-date. If you know that your game is coming out with a new expansion (whether they’re adding pandas, Cathar or wicked awesome horses), a new patch or the like and they’re including new raid content, let us know!
Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the raid/dungeon name and a boss list, and Slater will handle the rest!
This is a basic rundown of our Raid Progression widget. Much like our Ask Slater Tuesday posts, if you have something you’d like to see, let me know! Send me an email at email@example.com or send me a tweet – I’m @GL_Slater on the Twitter.
