Here is the link:
but I can get the source just from /information.

Answer Source

The details of the users are loaded by an Ajax call as you can see if you open the Developer Tools of your webbrowser:

developer tools showing ajax calls

You need to fed the DownloadString method with that XHR url:

using(var wc = new WebClient())
    wc.Encoding = Encoding.UTF8;
    var all = wc.DownloadString("https://tauriwow.com/allrealm/ajax");

The content you get is html, so you have to do the parsing of that by yourself, maybe using a library like CsQuery

When you run above snippet this is what you get:

<div class="lft realmBox realmBoxFirsts">
    <div class="realmTitle">
        <div class="subtitle"><div class="lft"><b>&raquo;</b></div><div class="lft subtitle2">Tauri WoW Server</div><div class="rgt realmType">RPPvP</div></div>
        <div class="realmStats"><a href="/allrealm/12">Detailed statistics</a></div>
        <div class="realmDetails">
