Char window-collapsed-Patch 6 2 3

Character tab of the Character window circa Icon Warlords 42x18 Patch 6.2.3.

Character Info frame (sometimes called "character sheet") displays information about the player's character. A window that by default shows the character's name (with title), level, specialization, class, (used to show guild, if a member), equipped items, and paper doll rendering. The character info window is usually accessed via the default "C" key binding.

In Mists of Pandaria

Mists-Logo-Small This section concerns content exclusive to Mists of Pandaria.

The UI was changed again in Mists-Logo-Small Mists of Pandaria to consolidate the Equipment Manager into the previously exclusive stats panel and add a pane for Titles.

As part of the ranged weapon overhaul, the Ranged/Relic slot was removed from the bottom of the window.

In Cataclysm

Cataclysm-Logo-Small This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.

Starting in Cataclysm-Logo-Small Patch 4.0.1, attributes, combat stats, resistances, and other info were viewable in a slide-out Stats panel accessible via a button at the lower right of character window. In addition, an Equipment Manager feature was added to manage equipped items via a separate, but attached window that was accessible via a button to the upper right of the character window (removed in Mists-Logo-Small Mists of Pandaria). Lastly, you could see reputation levels and currency counts via the Reputation tab and Currency tab at the bottom of the character window.

As part of the removal of ammo, the Ammo slot was removed from the bottom of the window.


In addition to the character info, the window also gives access to other info panes via the following tabs and buttons:
