In World of Warcraft

In World of Warcraft, rank can mean a few things:

  1. Your position and assigned privileges within a guild hierarchy.
  2. An item characteristic, especially for PvP items that indicates the progression of quests or level of reputation you have with a faction.
    For example, [Frostwolf Insignia Rank 1] is the first rank you can receive, but you need Revered with the Frostwolf Clan to get [Frostwolf Insignia Rank 4].
  3. The relative effectiveness or level of a spell compared to a spell of the same type.
    For example, comparing two ranks of the Priest spell, Lesser Heal:
    Lesser Heal, Rank 2: Heal your target for 71 to 85.
    Lesser Heal, Rank 3: Heal your target for 135 to 157.
    In Cataclysm-Logo-Small Cataclysm, spell ranks were removed, with spells instead scaling with levels like heirlooms do now.
  4. Your position (also known as Ranking) in the military hierarchy of your faction. See the Honor System (pre-2.0) page for details.
