The World of Warcraft Armory/community site
has been updated
with a useful new feature showing players the mounts and companion pets they have collected so far. You'll be able to see where each pet or mount comes from or who drops them, a picture of each, and even a listing of not-yet-collected pets and mounts, making it easier to be an achievement hunter or collector.
The armory has changed drastically from its original interpretation and implementation, adding features over time that give players a more cohesive out-of-game experience. What is most interesting are the potential tie-ins later on with the previously announced WoW APIs
coming down the pipe in the near future; we are still unsure of the amount of data that developers will be able to access from the WoW a
rmory. I would not be surprised to see collected pet and mount data also being part of that package.
We've got a pretty full-featured armory at this point. What other types of data do you think the armory could or should provide? Perhaps next we'll see a tabard and title tab, showing players' collected tabards and a scroll list of titles earned. The sky is the limit, apparently.
Mounts and pets now on the Armory
We recently updated the character profile system with a brand new feature to help you track your loyal companion pets and stalwart mounts.
A visit to your character profile will reveal a new heading entitled "Companions & Mounts." There you'll find a complete list of in-game pets and mounts that your character can discover throughout Azeroth (and beyond). The list is conveniently divided between those that your character has already collected, and those that you have yet to find.
Still pursuing a particular pet? Mad for a magnificent mount? Just mouse over the object of your desire in the Companions & Mounts page and you'll see information that should help make your next hunt a success. You can filter the results to make it easier to find pets and mounts from a particular source, or sort them by rarity to help you plan future collecting expeditions.
The update is live, so head on over to your character profile to visit your pals right now!
