Azerite Power Calculator Now Live! - Wed, 04 Apr 2018 23:19:37 -0500 Blizzard has finally added the first UI elements to the Heart of Azeroth system in the April 3rd Alpha Build. In order to help players explore this new system, our developers have created a brand-new calculator that adds the same UI elements to our item pages!
The calculator is really simple to use, all you need to do is go to the page of the item you want to see the traits from, for instance Robes of the Champion, and then select the class that you want to see the traits from!

The Remote Auction House Is Retiring - Wed, 04 Apr 2018 12:33:28 -0500 Blizzard has announced they are retiring the WoW Remote Auction House on April 18th. The Blizzard API will continue to work.
Perhaps a revamped WoW App, or Auction House overall, will be on the way.
The WoW Remote Auction House will be deactivated on April 18, 2018. On that date, you will no longer be able to view Auction House listings or make Auction House transactions through the official WoW website or the WoW Armory app, and all links will be removed from our website.
Note that the traits listed below are for a placeholder Azerite UI, and are specific to one piece of armor enabled on the alpha. Each piece of armor will have its own set of azerite trait combinations.
Battle for Azeroth Zone Preview: Vol'dun - Wed, 04 Apr 2018 09:46:29 -0500 Today's build opened the last leveling zone in Battle for Azeroth: Vol'dun! Vol'dun is a desolate desert at the northwest side of Zandalar. The zone resembles an ancient, lost city complex that got devoured by the desert over the millennia. This zone includes many factions already seen before, like the Tortollan and the Sethrak, plus new ones, like the very anticipated Vulpera!
The zone is controlled by the Sethrak, which are using Vulperan slaves to excavate canyons in the north of the zone.
