Gadgetzan: API SDK

Table of Contents


  • Full API coverage for Diablo III, Hearthstone, StarCraft II, and World of Warcraft.
  • Automatic access token handling and renewal.
  • Built-in throttling to match Blizzard's rate limits (36,000 requests per hour, 100 requests per second).
  • File-based request caching to save API responses that do not change frequently.
  • Automatic request-retries for intermittent failures.
  • Lightning-fast promise-based resolution for getting index entry details.
  • High-level convenience objects and methods for common practical tasks.

Getting Started


npm install --save gadgetzan

Creating a Client

To create a client, you need to register an application with Blizzard: Use the client ID and client secret found on your application details page to create the client:

const { Client } = require ('gadgetzan');

const client = new Client (

You can optionally pass a third argument with the following configurable options (defaults provided):

  region: 'us',
  locale: 'en_US',
  retries: 3,
  timeout: 5000,
  concurrency: 5,
  throttle: 100,

  cache: {
    enabled: true,
    ttl: 60 * 60 * 24,
    file: '.cache'

High-level API functions are available through each game's short-name (Note: at the moment there are no high-level functions defined for Diablo III, Hearthstone, or Starcraft II):

  • Diablo III: client.d3
  • Hearthstone: client.hs
  • Starcraft II: client.sc2
  • World of Warcraft (Retail):
  • World of Warcraft (Classic):

Low-level direct API calls are available through each game's short-name's API property:

  • Diablo III: client.d3.api
  • Hearthstone: client.hs.api
  • Starcraft II: client.sc2.api
  • Starcraft II (Legacy): client.sc2.api.legacy
  • Starcraft II (Account): client.sc2.api.account
  • World of Warcraft (Retail):
  • World of Warcraft (Retail Profile):
  • World of Warcraft (Classic):

Note: Some of the WoW retail and SC2 APIs requires an access token generated with the authorization code flow. This library does not currently handle this flow. To generate this access token, you can use passport-bnet or equivalent. Once the access token is generated, you can import it using the client.setAccessToken (accessToken) method. Note that automatic token renewal is not supported for access tokens granted using this flow, but it will allow you authorized access to the and client.sc2.api.account methods.

The last parameter in every method is an optional options object which allows customizing the following parameters on a per-request basis:

  params: { key: value, ... },
  retries: number
  timeout: number,
  cache: false | true | { enabled: boolean, ttl: number, file: string }

For example, if the client's default region is us but you need to request details for a region in eu, you can: ({ params: { region: 'eu' }});`

Some methods such as override user-defined parameters if specified such as id, orderBy, and pageSize to ensure working and efficient pagination requests to Blizzard. Overrides are used sparingly and only when necessary to decrease the chance of user-defined inputs causing an error.


World of Warcraft (Classic) - Get all horde auctions on Grobbulus:

let realm = await ('Grobbulus');
let auctions = await realm.getAuctions ();

console.log (auctions.horde);

World of Warcraft - Loop through every available item:

let items = await ();

for await (let item of items) {
  console.log (item);

World of Warcraft - Get the item icon for Jeeves:

let item = await ('Jeeves');
let icon = await item.getIcon ();

console.log (icon);

World of Warcraft (Classic) - Loop through all available regions in Europe:

let regions = await ('eu');

console.log (regions);

World of Warcraft (Classic) - Using the low-level API to get a region by ID directly:

let region = await (43, { params: { region: 'eu' }});

console.log (region);
