We have recently deprecated in entirety the previous implementation of the World of Warcraft website which was accessible via
*.battle.net/wow/*/, in favor of the more recent implementation accessible via worldofwarcraft.com.
If your community sites/projects were previously leveraging the redirect from
worldofwarcraft.com/*/character, this redirect has been removed and all requests to
*.battle.net/wow/* will now be redirected to the root of worldofwarcraft.com.
