Posted on June 8, 2007, Ron Whitaker World of Warcraft Armory Update
If you play WoW, or even know someone who does, chances are you’ve seen the Armory. If you haven’t, here’s the deal. The Armory allows anyone to visit the site and search for any character or guild in World of Warcraft. Once you’ve found what you seek, you can see player stats, equipped items, talent specs, reputation levels, and more.
As if all that wasn’t spiffy enough, Blizzard has added some new functionality to the Armory. First off, they’ve added an item database. Adding this reference has spawned several other new features. The coolest, in my opinion, is the ability for a player to pull up their Armory profile, mouse over a piece of their gear, and click an arrow to find an upgrade.
You can see all these new features and more at the Armory. There’s even an Updates Page that has tutorials on how to use all the new features as they are added. Enjoy checking out all your friends’ (and enemies’) gear!
