The only certain things in a gamer’s life are death, taxes, and getting addicted to World of Warcraft. At one point or another in our gaming life, we have all dipped our toes in the MMO pool. But some people stick around longer than others. They found the Raids. Raiding isn’t just an interesting distraction from the base World of Warcraft campaign, it is the whole point of the game. As a viewer or a fan, you could even take part in some WoW betting on some of the WoW best guilds.
List of the Best Guilds in WoW
The list of Wow guilds below is based on the progression of the last incredibly difficult raid, Sepulcher of the First Ones, which put all the best guilds in WoW to the test and to their limits. While some guilds seemed to be better than others at first, the longer and harder the raid proved itself to be, the true reflection of the guilds’ value came to display.

1. Echo, EU Tarren Mill
After the various scandals with Method, a lot of members left the guild, and they created Echo. As Method was number one at the time when that happened, it should be no surprise that this guild is once again in the number one spot.
Their first big achievement was back in Castle Nathria, where they took the world’s 2nd on the majority of fights, including Sire Denathrius. In Sanctum of Domination, they took world 1st on Sylvanas, as well as on Kel’Thuzad, Guardian of the First Ones, and Painsmith Raznal, and they also took 2nd place on Fatescribe Roh-Kalo, Soulrender Dormazain, and Remnant of Ner’zhul.
In the last raid of the expansion, and the one that concluded the WoW story that has been building up for 20 years (which was a bit lackluster from the perspective of lore), Echo performed extraordinarily. While they did lose most of the kills to Liquid, once they got to Lords of Dread, they started taking the world’s 1st kills all the way to the end, including the kill on The Jailor, which was undoubtedly one of the most significant achievements in World of Warcraft considering how brutal the fight is.
2. Liquid, US Illidan
Previously known as Complexity Limit, it is the best guild that the US has to offer. While they haven’t had that much luck with The Jailer, getting the world’s 5th kill on him, they have claimed world 1st on seven different encounters on mythic difficulty. In the previous raids, they have also displayed some high levels of gameplay, getting the world’s 2nd on Sylvanas in Sanctum of Domination and the world’s 1st on Sire Denathrius in Castle Nathria.
3. Skyline, CN 无尽之海
When it comes to the Asian region, Skyline is indisputable, as they have constantly been number one or two in the region. In Sepulcher, they have been getting a lot of top 5 kills, but what puts the cherry on top is the 3rd kill on The Jailer, which is highly impressive, considering how difficult the raid is.
4. SK Pieces, EU Stormscale
With this guild, we are slowly entering the World 1st territory, and even if their only achievement on this level is the one from Crucible of Storms, it is still very impressive. While no one was taking this guild seriously, as their world 1st was a “filler raid,” they have constantly displayed an extraordinary amount of skill by getting world 3rd on Ny’lotha, Castle Nathria, and Sanctum of Domination. Even in the Sepulcher, they have claimed various 3rd spot kills, and they are also the 4th ones to slay The Jailer.
5. Method, EU Twisting Nether
While Method did indeed get the 2nd kill on The Jailer, the fight was a bit bugged for them, so we can’t really give them all the glory, especially considering that all the guilds before them have performed much better on the bosses before him, as well as previous raid tiers. Regardless, they are still a guild that is entertaining to watch.
6. BDGG, US Illidan
The Big Dumb Gaming Golden Guardians have quite an interesting name, but according to the skill they are displaying when it comes to raiding, it is quite the opposite. When it comes to the US raiding guilds, they are easily the 2nd best guild. Their best latest achievements are the 6th kill on Rygelon, Anduin Wrynn, Halondrus, and Dausegne, 5th on Prototype Pantheon, and 4th on Lihuvim and Artificer Xy’mox. When it comes to the previous raids, they also got the world’s 4th kill on Sylvanas in Sanctum of Domination and the 9th kill on Sire Denathrius in Castle Nathria.
7. Aster, CN 血环
While Aster formed a raiding guild only in 2021, they have already displayed that they got what it takes in order to compete with the best guilds in the world. Sepulcher of the First Ones, being their first raid, even if it proved to be very difficult, got this guild various 7th place kills on Lihuvim, Halondrus, Anduin Wrynn, and Rygelon, and they even managed to snatch the 5th spot on Lords of Dread.
8. Jitianhong, CN 伊森利恩
One of the guilds that somehow always goes under the radar of “top WoW guilds” lists is Jitianhong. They have had a lot of success in various raids, placing 14th in Sanctum of Domination, 6th in Castle Nathria, 5th in Ny’alotha, 5th in the Eternal Palace, and 4th in Crucible of Storms. When it comes to the Sepulcher, they managed to get a lot of 8th kills, which are on Anduin Wrynn, Lords of Dread, and Rygelon.
9. Aversion, DE Blackhand
One of the best guilds in Europe that comes out of Germany is Aversion. They have been sticking to their server, Blackhand, ever since they have formed, and they have been one of the first ones to plow through the mythic content with each raid, being the 6th in the world for Sanctum of Domination, and progressing far in the Sepulcher before many others.
10. FatSharkYes, EU Kazzak
One of the oldest guilds on the list was created back in 2012 during the Cataclysm era. Their first big breakthrough into the top guilds was in 2013, and while they haven’t gotten any world-first kills, they are always very consistent when it comes to mythic clears in a timely fashion.
11. Club Camel, US Area 52
Another guild from the US, Club Camel, is showing that they got fangs when it comes to the Race to World First, as they have gotten into the top 10 two raids in a row now. While they did not make it into our top 10, if they perform equally or better in the first tier of Dragonflight, they most certainly will.
12. Instant Dollars, US Mal’Ganis
The guild that has been showing some rapid progression when it comes to competition by going from 49th to 16th and now to 7th kill in the world is Instant Dollars, and that kind of progress is something that should not be taken lightly. We hope to see more amazing performances from these players in the future, where they might even get into the top 10 on our list.
13. MNM, EU Tarren Mill
It is quite a shame that we could not put MNM in the 11th spot because that is probably where they would feel at home. The reason we are saying that is because, on the past three raid tiers, they got the 11th kill in the world in each tier. While that might justify bumping their ranks, since their progress is quite stagnant, we showed move love to guilds that have been around for longer or have shown some kind of improvement compared to their raiding in the past.
14. Conspiracy, EU Ragnaros
While Conspiracy did get the 1383rd kill on Sylvanas Windrunner, we will not count that as their tryhard run since that would be unfair to the guild. Once they pulled their strength to display what they are made of, they managed to get the 12th kill on the Jailer, which is an amazing improvement that might be only the beginning of this legendary guild from EU Ragnaros.
15. Zero Empathy, EU (FR) Archimonde
Many might not be familiar that the French guild Zero Empathy has been raiding since the Battle of Dazar’alor. However, back then, they were treating the game quite casually and were not racing to the fastest kills on the last bosses of the mythic difficulty. But, with the Eternal Palace, their mindset quickly improved, as they got the 310th kill on Queen Azshara, and they have been improving since. At the moment, their progress is a worthy contender for the next RTWF since they got the 8th kill on the Jailer.
16. Exposed, EU Drak’thul
Tier 20 is known to be one of the hardest tiers WoW has ever seen, and Exposed was forged right in the heart of that tier on the Kil’jaeden fight, where they managed to get the 38th kill in the world on him. Since then, they are always getting some very good numbers when it comes to killing the final boss of the tier, which is usually always in the top 50. Considering that they got the 14th kill on the Jailer, they might break into the top 10 in Dragonflight.
17. Honestly, OC Frostmourne
One guild that has been around for a very long time, since Tier 15 (and perhaps even before that) is Honestly from the OC Frostmourne server. This guild has been managing to squeeze into the top 100 and even top 50 kills in various tiers, which is very impressive, and in the latest tier, they even managed to get the 16th kill.
18. Lotus, EU Ragnaros
Lotus started their raiding career in the previous tier, Sanctum of Domination, and while they were not super successful, they still managed to get into the top 500 in the world. In the latest tier, Sepulcher of the First Ones, they have shown quite a big jump in progression by getting the world’s 12th kill on the Jailer.
19. ty, KR Azshara
Considering that this is the first time ty from the Korean server, Azshara managed to break into the top list when it comes to kills on the Jailor, and it is very impressive considering that this is their first tier where they actually gave their best shot. Getting the 15th kill is very impressive, and it shows that there is potential in this guild.
20. Korruptio, EU Stormreaver
While Korruptio has been raiding for quite a while, as their achievements can be easily tracked back to Tier 19, they haven’t really shown any success in breaking into the top 10 on any major world kills since then. Regardless, they have shown that they are quite a dedicated bunch who is slowly progressing down the lower numbers by achieving the 17th kill on the Jailer in the world.
