We know there has been a lot of interest in what exactly our plan is for API support for The Burning Crusade Classic. I am excited to finally be able to share some plans with you that we are looking to move forward with quickly.
Arena Leaderboard APIs
We are planning the release of the following APIs with similar structure to the retail WoW endpoints:
- PvP Seasons Index
- PvP Season
- PvP Leaderboards Index
- PvP Leaderboard
- PvP Rewards Index
We intend to have these released to support Arena Season 1.
We understand the value community has for auction data, and while we don’t presently have plans to add support for Classic Era realms at this time, we are planning to release an Auction API for TBCC Progression realms. This API should match the existing structure for the retail WoW endpoint:
We understand this is an extremely tight window to work on updates for TBCC launch and Arena Season 1, so we want to support your efforts with a preview of the new APIs on the Public Test Realm targeting a release next week. I’ll update this thread with information once the preview APIs are live, or if there is any deviation to this plan.
Outside of support for Arena and Auction data, you can expect TBCC to offer the same APIs supported for Classic. At this time, we have no plans to support public character profile or guild APIs.
Our community developers are a critical part of what makes the World of Warcraft amazing. Thank you for your patience and the continuous time and energy you put into supporting our players.
