The World of Warcraft Remote Auction House beta test commenced, and the iPhone app is available for download in several languages from the Apple Store. The beta app is free, and once it goes retail the cost will be $ 2.99 a month. The web version has free features, and an optional premium subcription will be available.
|Welcome to the World of Warcraft Remote Auction House beta test! |
During the beta test, all features — including premium features like buying/selling items and collecting gold — are available for testing. After the beta test ends, a subscription to World of Warcraft Remote will be required to access premium features. You can perform up to 25 transactions per day during the beta test.
The World of Warcraft Remote Auction House beta test is now open for business! The Remote Auction House is a new service in development that lets players access the World of Warcraft Auction House from the Armory website or the Mobile Armory app for iPhone and iPod touch. Players can browse their characters’ local Auction Houses with the same search functionality available in the game, as well as see the real-time status of each of their current bids and auctions.
As we’d mentioned previously (Update: Auction House & Armory Integration ), certain features of the Remote Auction House will be premium-based. Once the beta test is complete and the Remote Auction House is live, players will be able to subscribe to a new service called World of Warcraft Remote, which will allow them to buy items; post items for sale from a character’s bags, bank, or mailbox; collect gold from their bids and auctions; and more. During the beta test, players can try out these features for free, and each World of Warcraft account will be able to perform up to 25 transactions per day. (Please note this limit will be increased at launch.)
The list of realms eligible to participate in the beta test is displayed below. If your realm is not on this list, please check again soon, as we plan to eventually open the beta test to all realms.
