Your brand-new Profile site has a lot of love to give. When you click around your character and dive into the data you’ll see a rich history of everything you’ve ever loved about World of Warcraft: tricky achievements, rare pets, raid progression, PvP prowess and a great deal more. And it’s not just about your in-game XP—the new Profiles look just as good on your phone, tablet or desktop, so you can take your Warcraft story with you wherever you go.

What’s New?

Character
The main Character screen gives a beautiful high-level overview of. . . well, pretty much everything. It also mirrors what you see in-game, so the information you’re getting is not just easier to access, but makes logical sense when switching from in-game to IRL. Your gear has the same tooltips and you can see enchants, transmog info, gems, enhancements, and stats at a glance. Don’t you look good? Scroll a little way past your character and you’ll discover talents, raid progression and Player vs Player overviews. More on all of that below.


Achievements
Want to know how close you are to 100% on any area of Achievements? You got it. A dashboard of your (undoubtedly many) Achievements immediately shows your progress by area of expertise. Better yet: you can drill down into the data and see when it all happened. Of course, you’ll also see Achievements you haven’t yet earned, so you can plan your play time to up that precious point count.


Collections
Here you’ll find your currently equipped Battle Pet team, alongside your full pet collection. The Pet Journal shows the cute and the deadly in all their glorious forms. As in the game, pets are ordered by favorites, then by level. On the second tab, you will find all your mounts ordered by rarity.These journals are a great way to remember when something as rare as hen’s teeth dropped, that time you crafted a pet or looted one from a complex (and angry) boss, or the time you completed an arduous task or quest chain to get that thing you wanted so much. It’s all here.


Raid Progression
Want to count how many times you’ve heard “YOU FACE JARAXXUS!”? Done. Raid progression is shown from Classic through every expansion, right up to the present day. If you’re a stickler for all the gory details, you can drill down into how many times you’ve killed each boss and at which difficulty. The color on the bars shows completion level, with green showing you’ve slain every boss in the instance. Good job!

Player vs Player
We all stand together! Well, some of us do. The rest of us really, really like to kill other players in-game (and that’s fine). If that sounds like you, then here is where you’ll see your Prestige and Honor levels, alongside your rating and kill count. That time you had to kill 500 of each race for the Nemesis quests will make that kill count look very juicy indeed. For the Horde! For the Alliance! For the sheer joy of killing your fellow players!

Reputation
Feel the love! Or the hatred, depending on your Burning Crusade Shattrath choices and your penchant for pirates. Either way, your best friends and favored factions are listed by expansion. This will help you decide who needs a little more kowtowing and which dungeon to run to max out your standing. And hey, don’t be a Stranger.

SOMETHING’S NOT QUITE RIGHT!
If your character isn't being displayed in its full glory on your Profile page, log in to the game, change a piece of gear and log back out. Refresh the Profile page and your character will be waiting for you (this may take a few minutes). If you run into any issues or bugs when using your new Profile page, let us know on the Website Bug Report forum. That way we can keep everything working beautifully.

What Do You Think?
Let us know your favorite changes, as well as ideas for additional features in the comments. We’d love to hear your feedback!

Potential New Book - Troll Wars
A listing appeared on the French version of Amazon for "World of Warcraft: Die Trollkriege" by Paul Kemp. Keep in mind that this is not an official announcement.

The arrival of the foreign Magi and their alliance with the Human race lay the foundation to one of the most serious conflicts Azeroth had ever witnessed, a conflict that would be known throughout history as the Troll Wars.



World Boss - Ana-Mouz
Be sure to kill Ana-Mouz in Suramar for chance at item level 860 items and a Fel Relic.



Weekly Bonus Event - Legion Dungeons
The Legion Dungeon Event is live this week!

  • The Arcway
  • Assault on Violet Hold
  • Black Rook Hold
  • Court of Stars
  • Darkheart Thicket
  • Eye of Azshara
  • Karazhan
  • Halls of Valor
  • Maw of Souls
  • Neltharion’s Lair
  • Vault of the Wardens

Look for the following all week long:

  • Archmage Timear near Violet Hold in Dalaran has a quest for you. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal.
    • Quest requirement: Complete 4 Legion dungeons on Mythic difficulty.
    • Rewards: One loot box containing a piece of gear from Heroic difficulty Nighthold.
  • Passive bonus: The final boss in each dungeon drop additional loot on all difficulties (except Mythic Keystone difficulties).

    rofl this weekly series is a joke

    they did so good with the NH ones

    it's just a website so nothing that can be a problem, however I think it would look better if it had the warcraft theme and not a modern website theme
    it would look less professional probably, but better in my opinion

    It doesn't matter how good or bad the new layout looks.

    1. Mobile trash aka unuseful for the demographic WoW is set for (PC). There are already better mobile feed apps available.
    2. It removed more information. Remember how they retarded up the character stat panel? Well this is the same thing.
    3. We're beta testing shit while they "improve it" with no opt-out choice.

    Should be one other world boss up, since there isn't any info yet I assume it's going to be a Stormhiem one.

    Still can't see relic slots.

    I love how the post is like "Yay! New armory update!" followed by a long list of features that have been taken away with the new design. This is supposed to be a good thing, right? Right?

    I was thinking the same. Doesn't seem like an upgrade if a lot of information has been removed/ is no longer displayed.

    buah, you can't make funny faces on this armory

    People who complain about the Legionfall campaign being dull clearly don't know how to read anything, ever. It's already been discussed numerous times that it was just filler and that the team did not have time to create something as great as the Suramar campaign. It doesn't excuse what they've done but they are obviously aware of it and you should not be so negative when they knew what they did all along. It was never meant to be a great story campaign, people just blindly expected that without reading into it.

    Armory designed for tablets. Previous mouseover info like the boss kills are now in clicked popups and everything is very spaced out with big letters.
    Not my favorite but I guess it's the thing to do these days.

    The loss of info like it's listed on the frontpage is more of a problem. Nothing added like relics or even AP is just vexing. Seems like they only had a graphic designer work on it and forgot to add functionality.

    Also no ratings for crit/haste/mastery/versatility. Just percentages.
    No overall stats for leech / avoidance / speed.

    Who cares about the look when so many informations are gone? Instead upgrade we got big downgrade in my opinion. The old version not only had much more informations but was also "cleaner" and more readable.

    Why introduce a new Armory if the old one wasn't even functioning/up to date properly ?
    Why introduce something new if you can't even prove the original works.

    My first thought was: Wow, did someone google translate that from chinese and that's why it reads like almost everything is gone now? Nah they actually just threw half the information out the window o.O
    Reeks of tablent and phone peasant optimization.

    Also the troll book concerns me.. I just hope we won't have a fucking troll expansion incomming, that raises some seriously disturbing flags me.

    During the late 90's we had the console-i-fication which ruined tons of pc games... these days it is casual-i-fication..

    So only 17 more weeks until something actually interesting happens in game. Oh wait, that's several months, guess its time to cancel my sub until anything interesting happens in the game.

    As far as the Armory update? Someone needs to get fired. NOW. Page links not working, images missing, half the data gutted? WTF was someone thinking?!?!

    https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/ch...llections/pets Scroll down to their Legionnaire Murky, or go to the second page and look at Mischief. Seems like they need to hire the graphics dev from WoWhead....

    I don't like the new armory. Lots of information gone and I have to scroll down at least 3 meters (5 meters if I inspect hunter) to see every info about character. 3/10
