The WoW-Character-Display plugin shows many informations from the WoW armory in a widget or post. High configurable for single characters and guilds!

Basic features:

  • New: Now with support for 3D Armory flash model viewer! Show your character like he look in World of Warcraft!
  • Displays armory informations for multiple World of Warcraft (WoW) characters in posts, pages and in the sidebar (multi widget support)
  • Display multiple World of Warcraft (WoW) guild rosters in posts, pages or in the sidebar (multi widget support)
  • You can configure very detailed which informations were displayed for which character
  • All armory regions are supported (EU/US/China/Korea/Taiwan)
  • All armory output can be done with the available armory languages
  • Multiple language support for the plugin is included, please help to translate and contact me
  • Wowhead tooltips via javascript were included (DE/EN/RU/FR/ES)
  • HTML code is cached to reduce the requests to the WoW armory
  • Default CSS style is included, but you can turn that off by option and use own CSS code to format the output
  • Integrated button for the TinyMCE html editor to add characters or guilds to a page or post

Usage (it's so easy):

  1. Configure the basic options of the plugin to your needs (don't forget to enter the localised names for the professions!)
  2. Add a wow character or a guild in the plugin options (just enter EU or US realm and character name)
  3. Configure what is displayed for that character or guild
  4. Show that character sheet or guild roster in a widget (add widget, select character/guild) or in a post (via shortcode)
  5. If you want to add another guild or char goto 2! :-)

The plugin reads the informations from the armory (EU or US) and displayes it in a widget or in a post. The information from the armory is cached (XML data and the generated character sheet or guild roster), if you configure that, so that we don't have to a request to the armory every click on your blog.

The plugin also adds the wowhead javascript to show tooltips for items and achievments.

Important: Only characters with a minimum level of 10 are available in the wow armory.

Details on which information can be displayed with the current version if configured:

  • Basic character informations (name, race, level, image, guild, title, 1st and 2nd talent specs, ...)
  • Basic stats (hp, mana, strength, agi, ...)
  • Resistances (arcane, fire, ...)
  • Melee damage (2h, 1h, dps, hit, crit, power, ...)
  • Range damage (damage, speed, dps, ...)
  • Spell damage (arcance, frost, ..., crit, ...)
  • Caster stats (+heal, manareg, haste, hit, penetration)
  • Defense (armor, def, dodge, parry, block, ...)
  • PvP (lifetime honorable kills, arena currency)
  • Titles (complete list of your titles)
  • Gear (all items you wear)
  • Glyphs (glyphs you use)
  • Professions (your profession skill)
  • Achievements (your last achievements)
  • Statistics (highest damage, damage total, ...)
  • Reputation (your positive reputations by all factions)
  • Date and time when the character in the armory was last updated

For the guild roster you can set the following options

  • Display total member count of the guild
  • Only display members with level higher than x
  • Only display members with lowwer higher than y
  • Choose image size of the character class images

All displayed informations were output localised like in the armory!

This plugin is inspired by the wow-armory plugin, but I want to write an own armory plugin, 'cause I want a cache for the armory data, I don't wan't to install the PHP cURL extension and I want a highly configurable plugin for multiple purposes and a guild roster. Now I put this plugin into the repository and I hope you can participate.
