Very Handy WoW Alt Management Site

Recommended Posts


The very originally named WoWthing site offers a pretty simple and yet very handy tool to manage all your alts (because let's face it, we all have too many)!

There's a pretty good overview of all your alts and what they've done this reset, as well as all the gear, currencies and more. And if there's a feature that's not there but you'd like/need? Well, the site is being upgraded all the time via feedback from players, so that shouldn't be a problem for too long. Here's the basic overview with everything enabled (you can customize what to show):



A lot of this data is acquired via the WoWthing_Collector addon, so you will have to install that as well to get the full functionality. You can head on over to the site to check it out without the addon, and here are some comments from the creator:

Uhh, hi, I make weird websites for fun! WoWthing is a web app to help me (or you I guess) keep track of my (your) serious alt problem. It does a bunch of stuff, but the screenshot below is an example of the most useful daily view. There's obviously more to it, you can check out the public version of my profile to see some of the other stuff.

It's open source, entirely free to use, and I have absolutely no interest in infesting it with ads/selling any of your info. I have no idea what kind of features people would like, but the sky is pretty much the limit - if it's available in-game, we can probably extract it via the companion addon and display it. Stop by our Discord if you have feedback, feature requests, bug reports, or just want to talk about your alt problem!

NOTE: quite a lot of the data comes from the WoWthing_Collector addon, also available on CurseForge. Regularly uploading that data is basically required, there's even a super basic Windows app to automate that - especially useful if you have multiple accounts. WoWthing Home view

So, you can head on over to the site to check it out and then see if you want to use it/install the addon for more options. You can also check out the reddit thread with discussions of new features to be added, or head to the project's discord as well.

We can't really speak to that, you'll have to decide for yourself.

At first glance it seems to be a web version of Altoholic...which I can use in-game.

This addon is BiS for alts.

For someone who already tracks a lot of this stuff for my alt army but in a custom-made spreadsheet, this is interesting news!

Author here, hi. It's as safe as any other site you log in to with your battle.net login (or Facebook, or Google, etc) - I get enough basic information to make a site user for you and the ability to get the list of characters on your accounts.

If you have a single account, or not many characters, Altoholic/SavedInstances are great, but as soon as you add a second account it's super awkward to keep track :( There's also some other stuff coming like automatic M+ key sharing via Discord/"team" page, and uhh really anything you can think of is probably doable.

I've used wowthing in its various incarnations since Legion.  The developer is someone who has worked on a lot of other gaming related projects.

I guess it's good to be cautious but a lot of WoW sites (including IV) let you login with bnet either just as an easy login method or because it needs to to use your character information to perform whatever function/tracking that it is intended for.

      Blizzard is adding new Feet cosmetic armor to the game in Patch 9.1.5. In this post, we're looking at the new items in more detail.
      Tauren and Trolls will appreciate new boots coming in the latest patch. On the 9.1.5 PTR, they can be purchased from the Trial of Style NPCs, but their source remains unknown for now. Below, we previewed all the new models.

      Bloodbathed Slippers

      Boots of the Blightbelcher

      Undaunted, the deaf and hard-of-hearing Warcraft guild, have completed Ahead of the Curve: Sylvanas Windrunner. Congratulations!
      Undaunted is at it again! The guild earned AotC Denathrius and cleared 3/10 Mythic Castle Nathria on March 26, 2021. Yesterday, a post on Reddit revealed that they now downed Sylvanas on Heroic difficulty. Now, Mythic difficulty awaits. We wish them the best of luck! Here is a screenshot of the guild shared on Reddit.

      The final hotfixes of the week are here with the On the Offensive achivement (required for Covenant mount purchases and the Maw hand mount version) getting significantly reduced requirements!
      September 14 (Source)
      On the Offensive now requires 6 of the covenant assault achievements to be completed (was 9). Classes
      Rogue Fixed an issue which could cause a player to clip through the platform when using Shadowstep on Mueh'zala in De Other Side.

      In something that has now become a new WoW tradition, players have been gathering to celebrate the end of Summer as we now have a very thematic seasonal clock in the game! The circle is complete as we've now seen all 4 variations of the mount in-game as well.
      While WoW is pretty static when it comes to seasons and, well, time in general, we now have a really cool connection to the real world in the form of the Wandering Ancient tree mount, so we'll be seeing gatherings like these below a lot!

      Source: Galaxy_119.
      And some will be showing the tree off in its natural habitat, proving that even ancients can be VERY stealthy in the right conditions:

      Source: drinnster.
      The Wandering Ancient is really awesome and adds extra interactivity and "feel" of the world - definitely one of the better additions to WoW in recent memory and we hope to see these little changing of seasons rituals continue on forever!
      In case you're new or missed when the mount arrived, it should be in your mount collection tab already as  gift if you have Shadowlands purchased, now head on out there and showcase the new Fall colors!
