Hey, World of Warcraft players! You know how you’ve been chatting with your guildmates on you iPhone or Android device while cruising down the highway? You remember thinking how amazing technology can be, letting you interact with these people who were currently logged into WoW, while you yourself were obviously NOT in-game, all while speeding toward the intersection hoping to beat the red light?
(Editor’s Note: Seriously, don’t do that people. That shit is reckless and dangerous. Plus, try explaining to the cops that you rear-ended that family of five because you were talking about what class your Panda was going to be. Sodomy via taser is nothing to sneeze at, folks. It does the opposite of tickle.)
Remember feeling minor regret at having to pay a couple of bucks a month for the privilege of being able to waste even more free time in WoW?
Well you can squash that minor regret like the cat you drove over while you were reposting your Peacebloom on the AH! The Mobile AH just went FULLY FREE TO USE baby!
Starting today, all of the features that were previously part of the optional World of Warcraft Remote subscription service are now available for free to all World of Warcraft subscribers. These features include:
- Remote Guild Chat – Stay in touch with your guildmates on the go using your mobile phone.
- Remote Auction House – Bid on items, create auctions, and collect gold via your mobile device or through the official World of Warcraft website.
It just became that much easier for World of Warcraft to devour more of your waking hours! How exciting and wonderful!
EDIT: I just received an email regarding my own mobile armory account. Turns out you get a free pet as well as game time!
