World of Warcraft: Legion's official companion app is up on the Play Store

Blizzard has been blowing GPAs, sinking careers, and ruining marriages with World of Warcraft for over a decade now. It's an enviable achievement.

One of the biggest new features is support for an official companion app, so addicts no longer need to rely on a PC to get their WoW fix.
