WoW Shadowlands API Update - Covenants, Soulbinds & More

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

We’ve updated the original post to now include examples related to the character profiles document changes.

Is there an example where a conduit slot has something socketed? The examples posted looks like the sockets are empty.

Hi Seriallos,

Please see below for an example constructed to demonstrate a conduit with an active socket.

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).

Greetings all,

Thank you for reporting these issues to us. While we are unable to provide an estimate on when we may be able to address these reports, we do want you to know that we have received them. Thank you for your patience.

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

404 Not Found

(tested with both static-us and static-9.0.2_36532-us namepsaces)

Do we have a way to request torghast layers completed by a character (overall / weekly) ?

Do you have plans to add informations as anima used for a run and the time it takes ?

Couple other requests:

  • It would be awesome to have an API for the “conduit library” to know what conduits a player has unlocked.
  • Having enchant data for things like oils, weightstones, and stamina patches would be awesome as well

It appears that the Soulbind API has been updated to only return active soulbind traits. I have some monitoring running on Raidbots and I’m only seeing bad data for characters whose last modified time is before Dec 12th, roughly.

Was the soulbind API fixed recently? Can I depend on it moving forward?

Greetings all,

An update on the Conduit and soulbinds API: with regional restarts in support of today’s scheduled maintenance, data for characters who log out after the maintenance period will now reflect only those conduits which are currently active for a given soulbind.

Please note that a Battlenet-Schema revision number change will not take affect for this change, and as such we recommend relying on the last modified date for individual documents if/when determining whether consumed data is pre or post fix.

Thank you again for your patience as we addressed this issue.

Any news on the missing spell media missing?

eg: Oath of the Elder Druid
/data/wow/spell/338608?namespace=static-us&locale=en_US&access_token=abc returns a 404

wowhead:

Is there an API string that offers data about Command Tables, such as what missions are available, with what rewards - and what missions your followers are on, with how much time remaining? I know the “WoW Companion” app has this info (and World Quest info that would be useful in an API), but I don’t see anything listed here for accessing that data.

Also, is there an API string that offers characters’ currency info? (for example, how many Timewalking Badges each of your characters has)

If these don’t yet exist, what’s the possibility of making that information available through the WoW APIs? Thanks in advance!
