How will merged auction-houses affect the API? Is there going to be a serious delay (1-3 months, or more) in implementing them after 5.4 goes live? Inquiring minds want to know.

We're not planning for any downtime.

As far as character profiles nothing should change. You will still be Lunarhawk from Earthen Ring and will access your profile as such.

As far as the mobile AH and AH api we're not planning any user side changes to the API. Clearly the AH data for any virtual realms will be the same as the realms they are grouped with. We're hoping to add data to the realm status API that will let you know which realms are the same so you don't need to download any double data.

I don't know exactly what fields we'll add to AH data to identify the seller but I would have to image we'll just add the realm name of the user. We will probably go live with that change sometime before 5.4 (even though it will be pointless data).

Most likely the new data in the auction house data dump will be:

"ownerRealm":"RealmName"

That sound ok? Would realm slug or name be more useful here?
