The WoW Remote Auction House will retire on April 18

Active Auction Listings in the WoW Mobile Auction House (WoW Armory app for iOS)

The remote auction house in WoW will be retiring soon, after years of servicing noble sellers away from home. The remote function will officially retire later this month on the 18th so enjoy your remaining days of remote auctions while you can. After that neither the WoW Armory App nor the website will support remote auctions.

However, the APIs will still be in effect, meaning you can still check up on auction house history in The Undermine Journal or Black Market Auction House items for the day on TradeSkillMaster. The WoW Armory App will also still work for everything except auctions. That means your character profiles, talents, event lists, and guild chat will all be there to view on the go or just away from your computer.

After April 18, you’ll still be able to use the WoW Armory app for all other purposes, including accessing your character profiles, talent calculators, event calendars, and more.

API & Community Sites Unaffected

Some World of Warcraft community sites make use of Blizzard’s API to access Auction House–related data, and we will continue to support for that. If you regularly visit a site that accesses data from the Auction House to keep an eye on the price of fish, you (and they) can continue to do so after April 18. Carry on fish-watching to your heart’s content.

Azeroth Auctioneers Need You

In the meantime, eager auctioneers all over Azeroth are still available and conducting business as usual, so seek them out for all of your Auction House needs. Time is money, friend!
