Acquiring media (icon) files en masse

API Discussion
When consuming assets linked in media documents, developers are strongly encouraged to store copies of these resources on their own servers or other storage locations rather than hot-linking directly to Blizzard resources.


Okay, I'm happy to do that, but how?

The game holds about 20000 icons, sure, I won't need them all. But I want about 4000 - 5000 icons for what I want to do.

So do I write some loops and download each file on to my server?
Is there a media/icon pack to download?
Can I access them via the game files directly?
Or indirectly with software?

p.s.
The fel eggs and ham icon is missing for the 36px & 56px version

p.p.s. what other scales are there apart from 36 & 56?
or extract your own from the wow game
