Search for items

Is there any way to search for an item? Or any plans to implement such a feature? I know there’s API endpoints to get item information by ID, but I need to get possible item IDs based on some text.

It appears the main purpose of the items endpoint is to provide details for item IDs returned by other endpoint such as character equipment.

Currently the only way to do what you want is to iterate over the item endpoint and build your own database containing all items so you can search them for any field later.

As an alternative you can use https://wow-query.dev if you want. Those are the same data from the API and you can download its entire database here (Postgres) or use the interface to export the data to CSV (json format coming soon).

I’ll update the database soon to include any new data from the latest patch.
