Don’t you have phones? Well, I hope you do, because the new WoW companion app just got a sweet redesign with some clamored-for features just in time for the launch of its latest expansion.

Auction house functionality has finally been added! Never again will you miss out on that hot deal for agility flasks while you’re grinding away at work. You’ll have the ability to view and search for current auctions, bid or buyout, cancel your own postings, and even add or remove from a favorites list. You may have noticed there was no mention of actually posting your own new listings, so sadly not everything is available on the go.

As for the rest of the new features, most of it focuses on Dragonflight and its new major factions as well as world quests (Once you’ve unlocked them on a character). There is a sneaky one in there, though, where you couldn’t previously send Warlords of Draenor followers on garrison missions through the app – which has now been remedied.

I’d also highly recommend it for the mobile guild-chat feature, which is a fun way to keep on top of the latest drama, jokes, or achievements your fellow guild members are doing while you’re touching some grass. Any more details can be seen below in the full blizzard write-up on the matter.

The Dragon Isles are awakening, and you can join in the exploration of this new land even when you’re not at your computer with the WoW Companion App. To stay on top of the latest events in Azeroth, you can download the free mobile app that lets players take World of Warcraft with you anywhere you go with multiple expansion support—including the Major Factions feature in Dragonflight.

I've been playing WoW since beta with some breaks here and there. I'm a semi-hardcore to hardcore raider that focuses on retail mainly. I'm a big fan of giant dragons and am excited for all that Dragonflight will have to offer.
