Fallen hero data (killer+location)

Does anyone have an idea how we can translate the killer ID + location ID into text?
"death": {
"killer": 219702,
"location": 154587,

That seems to be the internal ids for the values.


For example, my hero was slain in Wortham by Dark Berserkers.
killer: 178300,
location: 72882,
time: 1339356749

So I assume to wait until we get either a static api for this, like for items or they change to killername.

Yep, makes sense. Probably it will get replaced to the killername since there is no further reference on a specific beast elsewhere on the site, same for location. Hope this gets fixed soon! Cheers

The killer is definitely a link to actor IDs which you can find by datamining. I'm not sure what location points to yet since it doesn't seem to match up to any scene or levelarea IDs that I have.

I googled mine including the area where I died. Just found some bot forums including some configs containing it as worldId.

We can look into create a data API for location and killer ids.

You are too kind. It would be extremely helpful.

Hello @Straton,

Better than an API call to retrieve the location and name, a global "static resources" repository or API would be ideal. This would help us getting useful data such as:

- internationalised text so it would be easy to match item description with what players can see in-game for instance
- all sorts of pictures that we would obviously advertise as yours
- achievements

I reckon this is not that complicated to use data-mined information available out there. However, I don't believe this to be good practice and since your have the source, making it available in parallel - or on top - of the existing API sounds reasonable from a developer point of view.

By the way, where are we supposed to make proposal for API changes/modification?

Thank you for the API anyway, this is still better than nothing :)
