Welcome to the Tribe of Guilds initiative, where the heartbeats of World of Warcraft guilds come to share their wisdom. This project seeks to capture the insights, experiences, and knowledge of WoW guild leaders and officers. From casual guilds enjoying weekend dungeon crawls to hardcore raiders pushing for world-first achievements, every voice and perspective is invaluable.

Our aim is to generate insightful dialogue that can inspire, guide, and support guild leadership teams across Azeroth. By sharing and learning from each other, we can create a richer, more inclusive World of Warcraft community.
