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.

At this time, the area was already settled by several loosely-allied weak tribes, while the Troll race had an advanced civilization. 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).

    Armory update is pretty lazy, art looks great, everything else is lacking options.

    A city has a lot more scope than a largely barren landscape.
    Though there could have been some more variation with demon themed buildings.
    LIke Felsoul Hold for instance.

    Can they get cracking on fixing the website's auction house? It's been busted for literally years (sorting simply doesn't happen, if you search on one toon it doesn't reset when you switch to the next so you can't view your inventory, popups when your auctions sell or you have been outbid no longer appear, etc)

    So we traded a bunch of nice stuff for what, bigger character model?

    Ana Mouz is part of the weekly rotation now. Presumably so is Nalak.

    Not liking the new armory at all. It's actually not the first time they "downgraded" the armory. Remember that the armory used to have achievement-comparison a few years ago? And now they've removed filtering as well. What's next? No more equipment shown but just an even bigger image of your character?

    Seems blizzard liked this one a lot...

    At least now, that we have this 'wonderful' Armory back up (yes, back up, as the old one wasnt functioning for ages now) we know why the weekly quest chain for Tomb is sooooo...poop.... They must've been busy designing this armory... with Xavius' room... along with mage class mounts.
    I mean, realy? Achievement statistic -gone (it was actually fun going through them). Recent Activity - gone. Other talent specs - gone. No professions, no filtering. What the hell is this ?
    I just don't get why couldnt they fix the old armory and thats it...

    omfg it looks sorta somewhat alike that it has a modern look, guess they stole it, holy shit
    i mean this




    totally is just a rip off of








    i think you missed that blizzard remade the website, and this person made their version of the armory based on the websites redesign, so of corse they are going to look "semi alike" since they are both based off the same designs

    ask 2 people to make a car using the same exact parts, they will prob come out looking pretty similiar

    Scale of the new armory design is entirely too big imo.
    Needs to be 25-30% smaller.

    Who the fk cares if I look beautiful or not on a webpage with my videogame character? They can replace my character with a picture of a potato all I care. I want armory that provides useful information about my own and others characters. And they just decided to remove a majority of the useful information. GG wp

    100% agree on this. Seems like they optimized it for Tablets.

    ok why was this updated to include less information? what's the point of that? why should we like this new version better when it gives us less?

    They removed so much information and data from with this update. Do you seriously think this okay?

    Yes. Since the information it does give is all that is required.

    I think it's okay if you consider that it's the first version and they're taking feedback on the forums and will hopefully continue to improve it.

    As they say "has been updated", not "upgraded".
