Notes Edit

  • This function was added in Patch 3.2
  • The information is not encoded in the GUID itself; as such, no data is available until the client has encountered the queried GUID.
  • You can test it with the below (requiring a target, nil if the target is not a player).
/run print(GetPlayerInfoByGUID(UnitGUID("target")))
