I don’t know if you’ve been over to the official WOW site recently but they just announced a new feature called the Armory and I’m here to tell you it’s fucking brilliant.
Essentially it’s a giant database that can serve you up all the stats you could ever want about anyone in the game. What blows me away is how fucking classy the presentation is. The way the site presents things like guild rosters and character profiles is just beautiful. Also the way everything is linked so that it’s easy to move from character to guild to Arena teams and on and on is great. The site also features a bunch of gorgeous art that I’ve never seen before, not even in the art book that came with the collectors edition of BC. I just love it!
I spent a bunch of time poking around the site this morning and I thought I’d share some links for anyone interested.
Here’s my profile. As you can see I’m really taking my time chewing through the BC content. Last night I got rid of my last piece of Lieutenant Commander gear. It’s been hard replacing all that stuff I worked so hard to get with greens that drop off pigs and bats. I also finally hit 300 last night in Jewlcrafting and I think it’s my favorite profession. I have to give credit to Blizzard for perfectly reproducing the feeling of being level 21. Walking around with a bunch of mismatched greens, wearing a head piece I’m to embarrassed to turn on and just generally looking like a fool. It feels good to suck again.
You can also use the Armory to take a peak at the Penny Arcade Alliance. We’ve still got twelve guilds going strong on Dark Iron. Here are some links if you want to check them out.
