Oct 16th 2011 11:59AM Wouldn't this be an interesting way to indicate Deathwing's growing desperation as the plot continues? Not to mention, it ensures you get that achievement before it's gone.
Jul 21st 2011 11:43PM It's not really in Blizzard's interest to set restrictions on the API - as a lot of the content can be screen-scraped off of the existing Amory pages. (That is, programs can download the entire Amory page, and try to parse out the information they need).
But screen-scraping means having to hit tons and tons of pages on the Blizzard server, which is very inefficient for them - a public API is a win both for the Blizzard site, and 3rd party apps. They'll want to do everything they can to encourage its use.

Yeah, I suppose. But let's say you're want to gear some folks up - being able to tell whether to run BoT or BWD based on everybody's current gear...
It'd be pretty nice.
Jul 21st 2011 7:16PM Application Programming Interface - basically, it's a way for developers to write software that pulls in information from WoW directly from Blizzard.
Jul 21st 2011 7:15PM I think what I'm most excited about is the potential for raid leaders to help best identify solutions for all their raid members. Imagine if once the API is fully opened up, you were able to throw together your raid members' names, and find out:
- Optimal reforges for all your raid members
- Which bosses/raids offer the best gear upgrades for your raid overall
- Who needs what enchants, and who in your guild could get you those materials
Right now, you could crawl over your entire group's Armory pages and do an awful lot of legwork yourself to determine this info, but being able to automatically decide what's the most beneficial to your entire raid team would be amazing!
Jul 12th 2011 9:10AM I do this too - I try to prefix it with a /bow so they don't think I'm trying to steal their kill or something. But even so, people get weird about it.
