Q.: What the …?! Some pages are 404 and there’s a lot of placeholders and wrong datas! Fix it pls!11

A.: Do not forget that this is a beta version. All missed features will be implemented soon.

Q.: I can’t browse character page!

A.: Make sure that your server core was patched by provided patch and this character was saved in DB (armory_character_stats table in characters database). Also, read Debug Log (http://site_url/_debug/)

Q.: Where is character’s talents page?

A.: It’s because of updated in Cataclysm talent trees: original site has only new trees and I haven’t found any way to generate this trees manually.

Q.: Will character rendering feature be implemented?

A.: I hope so but I still have no information about how Blizzs do this. Seems that they’re using some separate software to generate it and if it’s true, this feature may not be implemented. At least at this moment.

nice Project Shadez & polaretto93 /emoticons/default_wink.png

Excellent project, i have a similar idea in my server but this its great


For me i’ll give -1 point only because there are SQL’s that change the characters database.

A good CMS doesn’t touch the core databases and has a database only for him.

Sorry for the donation info, I only copied the original post… actually it has an own database, the only modification is to a unique table from the characters DB, but is only for mangos, if I’m right…
