wow-iconSure, you might still have your full tier 1 set in your bank from Molten Core, and you may be lucky enough to wield [Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings] but in leaving the comfort of your basement, all of your phat loot and sick achievements are left behind. Or rather, they were left behind, before Blizzard released the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory [App Store] for the iPhone.

That's right citizens of the Horde and defenders of the Alliance, Blizzard's recently released app allows you to keep track of all your World of Warcraft characters, along with their stats, equipment, achievements and more. You can access your guild's stats and calendar, as well as other informational and planning tools. Experiment with talent trees or search for items, the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory can do it all.

Blizzard released this fairly impressive trailer walking users through the various functions of the app:

The World of Warcraft Mobile Armory is available as a free download, but requires a World of Warcraft or Battle.net account to use.

    Cool to see Blizzard recognizing the iPhone with this and the mobile authenticator. Perhaps... one day there will be Blizzard iPhone games.
    They are one of the few Mac-friendly game developers, so they would be a natural fit for the iPhone...

    Sick.. I think it actually works better than the web version. :) very smooth..
    the ONLY thing i would like to see (and this goes for the web) is well.. your character to be rendered on screen wearing your current armor.
    Then, this becomes a great show off app indeed.
    Who doesn't love looking at the mongoose enchant on a 2H axe?

    • Noah

      Haha, that actually would be pretty cool. A mobile "Dressing Room" :)

      • Darmok

        you should check out http://www.3darmory.com/ if you want to show off your character while not logged in to wow ;)

        shame that flash is still not working on the iphone...

    Yeah, this is one slick app. I love how Blizzard is building these free iPhone tools around their games, and doing such a good job of it. But I completely agree, a Blizzard iPhone game would be sweet indeed! Perhaps a port of their Blizzcon Failoc-alypse game for those of us who will be lined up for hours outside of the Anaheim Convention center before BlizzCon this year?

    pretty cool.
    now all I need is a WoW account.
    ...which doesn't make this free at all! 'o')

    Everything is fantastic but it does require constant wifi connection. You can bookmark any character which I did by browsing through my guild. So at least it remembers your friends. The talent build works great too but I'd like to be able to save certain talent builds so perhaps a Bookmark feature for that would be a welcome addition.

    Replaces at least 5 apps for WoW stuff.

    WoW Characters app $3 that I used to use for this. Although that would let you save character info offline. Had to enter each and everyone of your toons. Official app just enter your account and voila all your toons are there for your browsing pleasure on all realms.

    2nd wow app this replaces is Wow Chest which is offline data of all dungeon/raid loot. This has it all too although it's online rather than offline no biggie. One nice thing about WoW Chest was could sort loot by boss which Blizz app seems to lack. Looks like WoW Chest is no longer in app store anyway oh well.

    Wow Achievements app $2 not needed either as this has that info too.
    Guild Life app $free not needed as it has your guild.
    Wow Talent $1 no longer needed.

    WoW Companion $free might be handy for slash commands but don't think I'd use it.

    • walker33

      agree with everything you said, but the first part. I am running fine on 3g, no need for wifi.

      • mrbas

        yea meant to say requires internet connection my bad. But yea a few things if it saved it locally would be nice. Talent calculator and character profiles with item info.

    People still play World of Warcraft?

    No offense, that's cool, you just never hear about it like you did 2-3 years ago.

    • HellFiend

      Have you been living under a rock? Sorry but there are commercials for WoW all the time if you watch tv (which I rarely do and still see them), and there is news on any major gaming website about WoW related items atleast monthly.

        But it is a waste of time

    I´d rather liker to see a playable version of the game than an app to show off my char. But I quit playing WoW long ago, so this app isn´t that exciting for me.
    What I´d really love to see were ports of Diablo, Diablo II and Warcraft II and III (even better), not to forget Starcraft...basically every top game Blizzard ever made.
    And since they´re producing Diablo III and Starcraft II right now, a synched release of iDevice-Versions would be great.

    • Mr.C

      Nothing else you'ld like to wish? Maybe world peace?

      • http://www.rpg-fanatics.de crishnak

        Mhhh...probably, but I didn´t know Blizzard created something like this. If so, they should have released it years ago. ;)

    I will say for any of the 10 MILLION (or however many active) players, this is an excellent app. It seriously is so well laid out and it's very easy to navigate through. Blizzard definitely hit the ball out of the park with this app

  • Tuzzo

    Hi guys.
    I have a little issue with this great app: in character profile I can see my talent build (say DK Frost 0/51/20), but if I go to Talents panel, I've got no talent points assigned. It's all zeroes! The same goes for Glyphs page: it shows no glyphs, while I have 3 of them.

    Is it just me or what?

    Oh, BTW, European realms.
