Anyone install the client yet? I don’t trust EXEs and I sure as hell don’t like the upload work around they have. Why can’t they just pull from the armory and be done with it?

Since I am a coder by training, I was thinking of possible improvements to the site. I don't see the point of an EXE either, I would rather have a normal addon collecting the data. There is data you can pull only from the client and not the armory, for example what recipes you know, whether you have epic flight form/epic class mount, etc.

The way I read some of the info on their site, it seems part of the "innovative technology" is how it tracks what you like to do in-game (instances a lot, or questing a lot, etc.) so that it can recommend things based on that. I'm not sure the Armory would be much good for that kinda info. Also, it's info tracker doesn't start running until AFTER you've already logged into the game (like all add-ons that you install, unless you have something that manages your add-ons apart from WoW). The concept is indeed revolutionary, assuming it works. I haven't been able to try it yet, but I've read their site and it seems pretty neat in concept.

The armory doesn't have a lot of data on your character. It doesn't do location, or know how long you've been sitting at the same level. The AA add-on makes it much more personalized.
