Why Can’t I Check My Classic Character’s Reputation Scores?

Leave a comment on Why Can’t I Check My Classic Character’s Reputation Scores?

First of all, it’s been two months since my last post. Sorry about that! I’ve been traveling and shuttling kids between summer camps. But now that they are back in school, I should have more time to devote to this site.

One of the most common questions I’m asked is, “How can I see my classic characters reputation score?”.

The short answer is, you can’t. At least, not right now anyway.

The longer answer is that all of this data comes from public, Blizzard supported apis. For the non-developers, an api is essentially a website that allows my website to grab certain data provided via Blizzard. It’s how many of the popular World of Warcraft fan sites operate. When you enter your character information on wow-rep, my website talks to Blizzard’s website and receives your character’s reputation data. This is done by hitting a specific url provided by Blizzard.

The issue is that there is no such url for classic reputation data. Only recently has Blizzard introduced a few api endpoints for classic data at all. However, these endpoints are very sparse and none provide access to reputation data.

I am a member of the Blizzard api developers discord channel and communicate with those developers on a daily basis. They are very good at letting the community know when changes are available and new endpoints are created. As soon as an endpoint is created allowing me access to classic reputation data, I will incorporate that into my site and make a post letting everyone know that it’s available.

Until then, I do have some new, exciting features that I’m planning on releasing in the upcoming days. As always, if you have a request or suggestion, feel free to use the contact form on the left.
