Frequently Asked Questions
- Log in with Blizzard? Is this safe?
Yes, this is a safe method, recommended by Blizzard, for players to log in to third-party sites.
- Do you get my account information?
Information we receive when you log in:
- Your public BattleTag (e.g. "Thrall#1234")
- A unique numeric ID for your account
Information we can't get from Blizzard:
- We don't get your account's email address
- We don't see your password
- We don't get your billing information
- We don't get your list of characters
It's just your BattleTag and a number. That's all we get.
- Why do I need to log in?
We need to know who's using the site, so paid users can access our data.
- Wait a second, this costs money?
Yes, users of this website will be asked to pay a small fee to access the site.
- Did I just buy something?
No, there is no auto-billing or anything sneaky going on. We accept payments via Paypal, so you'll know when you're paying something. We don't even auto-renew subscriptions, it's strictly pay-as-you-go, like topping up a prepaid phone.
- So I have to pay to try this out?
New users of the site get an automatic trial period of a few days as a "paid" user. When your trial (or paid subscription) runs out, you'll see a notice at the top of the page.
- Why does this cost money? Can't you run ads or something?
The costs to run this service are significant. Database servers, web servers, scanning servers, and WoW accounts cost money every month. We did not want to risk the financial stability of this niche product on unstable income like ad revenue or donations. To help ensure the health of the site, we decided to go with a subscription model.
- Why is The Undermine Journal free, and this isn't?
The Undermine Journal, which offers auction house data for WoW Retail, benefits from Blizzard's auction house API. Blizzard has no auction house web API for Classic, so our costs (both in time and money) to obtain Classic data are significantly greater. Plus, The Undermine Journal has ads, and Booty Bay Gazette has no ads or tracking scripts.
- How do you collect the data, anyway?
We have a few WoW accounts which log into every realm on both factions on a regular basis, and they collect the data, which we process and store in our database.
- My popular realm (Faerlina, Herod, Stalagg) has no updates for a while. Why?
Since we have to log in to get data, if there's a login queue, we skip that realm and try it later. Some realms have queues for hours. There's not much we can do about that.
- There is no queue and my realm still has old data!
We monitor data collection and make fixes when we're able. Sometimes there's a snag when there's a game client update. Sometimes there are other network or server issues on our end. These are some of those time costs I was talking about before.
- Do you have an in-game addon?
Yep, click the addon link in the footer for more information.
- Do you offer a public API?
Will you have a database like Newswire?
Can I license this data for my project?
Can I export the data somehow?
No. We have no plans to support any data export methods at this time.
- Who's running this? Is this some knock-off of The Undermine Journal?
Well, yes and no. ;) Booty Bay Gazette is developed and managed by Erorus, who has run The Undermine Journal since 2010 and feels weird speaking in the third person. You may also know some of his other work, like Realm Pop, WoW Token Info, and his day job which we'll not name here.

You can read Booty Bay Gazette in English, German, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Russian, Traditional Chinese (for Taiwan), or Korean. Just choose your language in the dropdown box in the top right corner of the page.
All the item and pet names are translated from in-game data, but localizing the rest of the site has been a challenge. Most of the text on the site (over 90%) can be localized. However, we'll need some help from native speakers of each language to translate the terms we don't yet have. If you would like to help translate parts of the site (and not with Google Translate), it would be a big help!
It's really easy:
- Download the locale file for your language: German Spanish French Portuguese Russian Traditional Chinese Korean
- (Optional) Download the English locale file if you want a reference: English
- Change values in the locale file that need translations. You don't have to change them all, just do whatever ones you want.
- EMail me at localizationles at bootytokenbaygazette dot com, and attach your updated locale file.
That's it! We will find the updated lines from your file, and update the website with them soon after.
Subscribers who are helpful with localization may receive some paid subscription time free of charge.
