Thanks to everyone who provided feedback on our earlier website-cleanup plan announcement. We read through all of your thoughts and suggestions, and based on that we’re making a number of changes to our initial plan. While our goal remains to clean up parts of the website that require frequent updates but don’t see a lot of traffic, we heard some great reasons to keep specific sections around, and in some cases we've come up with creative solutions to make that happen.

Features Being Retired or Changed

    Game Guide

    • Factions
      • This will be replaced with a general overview of what factions are.

    • Professions
      • Profession pages will remain, but we will be removing the item lists.


    Guild Profiles


Features Staying

    Character Profiles

    • Hunter Pets
      • You’ll still be able to look at Hunter pet stables.
      • We will be removing the Hunter pet talent information showing how each pet is specced.




One common question we heard after the previous announcement was whether these changes would affect the website API, which is largely how fansites access data about the game and characters for use on their own pages. These changes in no way affect the API—they only affect the information we’re choosing to display on the official site. We’re committed to providing all of the site-builders out there with tools they need to make their WoW resources great, and we plan to keep providing them with the same level of API information and support.

Thanks again for all of your feedback, and for helping us ensure the World of Warcraft website continues to provide you with the information you seek.
