The Undermine Journal to close

Sad priest
There is sad news in the WoW community today. The longtime, invaluable auction house resource The Undermine Journal will be closing its doors at the end of July. The Journal cites ballooning server hosting costs as the culprit, and they just can't keep up. Since 2010, The Undermine Journal has been the place to go if you wanted to stay on top of auction house pricing--particularly for comparisons across different servers. The loss of this site is huge blow WoW players as a whole, but particularly for those who make a dedicated hobby out of playing the auction house.

There does remain some hope for The Journal's future, however. If they can find a new server host, it's possible that a revamped Undermine Journal will make an appearance in time for Warlords of Draenor. However, in their news announcement, they caution that if the expansion's launch comes and goes without The Undermine Journal's reappearance, it will likely be gone for good. They will do their best to keep a webpage in place in order to deliver updates on the situation.

From those of us at WoW Insider, we'd like to thank Erorus, the creator behind The Undermine Journal, for all his hard work and dedication to maintaining such a wonderful resource. We hope The Undermine Journal's absence is just a hiatus, but either way, we'll see you at Realm Pop.

Auction houses broken across Azeroth

Many users have been reporting tonight problems at the auction houses across Azeroth. Those people experiencing the issue are finding that nothing is listed in the AH, or all of their items are gone without a trace. This problem has been going on for about six hours, and only appears to be affecting US realms.

Zorayn has posted
that Blizzard is aware of the problem and their network technicians are working towards fixing it.

So sit back, have a glass of wine, and enjoy your Saturday night. Try not to use the AH, because finding all your stuff gone wouldn't be cool (you'll get it back though, I'm sure, if it is gone, one way or another).

We'll update this post when a resolution is announced.

Update: Rolling restarts are being issued to correct the problem. For servers which have been restarted, the issue appears corrected. The opening announcement on the loading screen makes note to say that no items will have been lost during this AH outage.
