Can you provide an example document for the Character Soulbinds API so we can see what the JSON looks like?

I’m going through a problem in the game interface very strange ! I can’t access the addons panel! the buttons just disappeared ! follow attached images

cant attach images here ! but its very weird !

Hi @Maguthul,

Is there any way of detecting what are the active conduits/traits? Right now I can get all conduits/traits, but I cannot filter only the ones that are active/being used with current implementation

Thanks for the Shadowlands update. I’ve been scraping players for my Drustvar site. I’ve noticed a few Conduits that are missing.

Pulling player conduit data from the “/profile/wow/character/{realm-slug}/{name-slug}/soulbinds” end point

Following conduits seem to be missing from “/data/wow/covenant/conduit/{id}” (and not listed under the index endpoint)

"name" => "Stalwart Guardian"
"id" => 5

"name" => "Inspiring Presence"
"id" => 8

"name" => "Safeguard"
"id" => 9

"name" => "Grounding Breath"
"id" => 25

"name" => "Walk with the Ox"
"id" => 57

Example of a player that has one of these missing conduits.

          "conduit_socket": {
            "type": {
              "type": "FINESSE",
              "name": "Finesse Conduit Slot"
            },
            "socket": {
              "conduit": {
                "key": {
                  "href": "https://us.api.blizzard.com/data/wow/covenant/conduit/8?namespace=static-9.0.2_36532-us"
                },
                "name": "Inspiring Presence",
                "id": 8
              },
              "rank": 1
            }
          },
          "tier": 1,
          "display_order": 2
        },

Ditto this. There’s no indication of which path the character has chosen. I believe each trait/conduit needs an “active” property to indicate if it’s currently active.

Bumping this again. Soulbinds Profile API is currently unusable - it’s returning all traits a player has ever chosen, not the traits that are currently chosen. This makes it unsuitable for any purpose since it does not reflect the current state of a character (it often is an impossible state that cannot be duplicated in-game)

Ditto. As I type this, I’m working on a soulbind import feature for you-know-where-head and I have to decide whether to launch the incomplete feature (which looks buggy) or wait for a fix (and let our competitors appear to launch first).

Looks like legendary spell data and media is missing as well.

Player’s equipment

  "spells" => array:1 [
    0 => array:2 [
      "spell" => array:3 [
        "key" => array:1 [
          "href" => "https://us.api.blizzard.com/data/wow/spell/338608?namespace=static-9.0.2_36532-us"
        ]
        "name" => "Oath of the Elder Druid"
        "id" => 338608
      ]
      "description" => """
        Equip: Effects of Thick Hide, Astral Influence, Feline Swiftness, and Ysera's Gift increased by 75%.\r\n
        \r\n
        When you shift into your Affinity's form, you gain Heart of the Wild for 10 sec, once every 1 min.
        """
    ]
  ]

Then trying to get the spell information from this Legendary Item
/data/wow/spell/338608?namespace=static-us&locale=en_US&access_token=abc
