New API: Achievement total_points is reporting wrong number

Hello! I am currently working on updating my web site to use the new Profile APIs instead of the old Community APIs. I am running into many issues.

The new achievements API returns a total_points field. This field used to work fine, but recently it seems that it is reporting a much lower number than it should. I assume it is now reporting the character-specific number of points, and is missing out on any points earned through account-wide achievements.

Note that the old API is still reporting the correct number.


  • /profile/wow/character/drenden/shoogen/achievements?namespace=profile-us
  • Notice total_points=28120
  • However, I have 32225 points, and the old API does show this

First off… 32,225 achievement points… wow! That puts you higher than any character in my database, although maybe that’s partly for the same reasons you mention :wink:

Confirming your report via my considerably more modest achievement profile on blades-edge/brialam:

In-Game Character Only Achievements option: not checked
In-Game Achievements Panel: 18,855 points
in-Game Guild Roster: 13,670 points
old community api: 18,910 points
profile/wow/character/achievements: 13,670
profile/wow/character: 13,670

I like that the new APIs are at least matching one part of the in-game display, although I think that guild roster column is pretty obscure and many players may have never noticed it.

As a player I’d prefer if everything matched the main part of the in-game display, the score prominently featured on the achievements panel.

This inconsistency will be resolved with our next API release. For more information, check out the patch notes here and further discussion here.
