Wowhead: Talent Calculator Updates!
19/05/2009 à 18:42
That'll teach us for thinking no one used this. The minute we changed the "Summary" link on the
to display only the talent titles, I was deluged in email asking us to change it back. Well, we hear you. The full-text printable Summary is back, and it missed you!
We've also made a few tweaks and updates to the talent calculator as well, so for those of you who have been using it regularly will notice a few tweaks—most notably, the links on the right side (Reset, Lock/Unlock, Import, Summary, and Restore) now all work for Glyphs as well as for talents.
Poke around, give it a try, and don't say we never gave you anything. :)

Pretty Picture Filler Week!
18/05/2009 à 12:32
As you may have noticed, I've been slacking with the comics. There are a couple reasons behind this, but its mainly due to me being eye-bleedingly busy. I've been using the days I allocate each week for Wowhead, to work on
badge images for the wonderful
I will be drawing these for other staff members in the near future, and for those that want to commission me for similar badge-art as above, they will be available soon. I'll add some information about it in a future post.
The other reason for a decrease in comic numbers, is a lack of scripts. I no longer have a full-time writer to make them for me, and I'm having terrible writer's block!
So if any of you out there have any ideas for short, simple, and funny WoW-related comic script, please feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Who knows...it might get used!
16/05/2009 à 12:54
So here I am, writing a blog post when I should be studying for a chemistry and physics final for next week.
I've got a question for you all who go to school, or even those who go to work (wait, those things don't happen if you play WoW!): How do you balance WoW (or another video game of your choice) with the obligations you have in real life?
Wowhead: A Few Little Updates
15/05/2009 à 17:27
We continue to tinker away in the background, and we've made a few small updates today that we wanted to make sure you knew about!
We've added the
Sceau de champion
(as well as the long overdue
Marque d'honneur de Joug-d'hiver
) to the list of items on the "Purchaseable With" filter! Try it out here:
Purchaseable with Champion's Seal
Purchaseable with Wintergrasp Mark of Honor
We've also added an
Obtained via Milling
filter to the list!
Not to mention of course, we're constantly updating the list of items found in
with fresh new data!
For all those of you in the process of clearing Ulduar right now, especially the hard modes:

Wowhead: More Static to You
13/05/2009 à 22:30
The development team here at Wowhead has made some changes to the way we serve up static content on our servers. We have been moving files that do not change often (such as images) to a new server to help improve the performance of the site. Today, we completed that move.
For those of you who are using the

tooltips or the
logos or search boxes, you should update your pages to take advantage of this performance gain.
Religion in WoW
13/05/2009 à 17:23
Some of you may have wondered, what are the different religions in the world of Azeroth? Well, in this blog I will discuss a few of those religions. There are seven major religions with a few more minor ones. The seven major religions are
Church of the Holy Light
Worship of Elune
Mystery of the Makers
Followers of the Old Gods
Cult of Forgotten Shadow
...with the most prominent of these religions (probably) being the Church of the Holy Light.
Follow us after the break for a little lore-lesson!
Costume Contest for Blizzard EU!
13/05/2009 à 17:12
So being US-based, we wind up running a lot of contests that are US-only, and I know our non US-based community feels a little left out sometimes, so I figured I'd let you guys know about an opportunity to turn the tables on us. :)

Maintenance Complainers: Justified?
12/05/2009 à 13:09
Every single Tuesday on North American servers and every single Wednesday on EU servers, Blizzard takes down their servers for maintenance. Sometimes it's for full maintenance, and other times it's for rolling restarts. Since this has been the normal routine for over four years now, one thing really confuses me. It's not the fact that Blizzard even
maintenance in the first place; rather, what confuses me is the fact that players still complain about it. It makes me wonder why they complain about in the first place, and if they've not found a way to cope with the 6-8 hour inconvenience.
Let's venture into the realm of possibilities!
Thinking About Other MMOs? Me, Too
11/05/2009 à 22:18
It started when World of Warcraft was released and it didn't take long for me to become an obsessed fan, a hardcore player spending hours upon hours in Azeroth every day. Lately though, I've burned out and play less than ever. The thing is, I miss adventure.
Have you ever thought about playing another massively multi-player online game (MMO)?
And it isn't difficult to understand a large number of WoW players are casual gamers. It should come as no surprise that, for a game we subscribe to monthly, many players put a lot of time into their characters.
Do casual gamers get tired of playing the same game even though they invest fewer hours per week?
Unbeknown to myself, I recently discovered a plethora of MMO choices floating around the Internet. No doubt some of you have heard of games such as Vanguard or Warhammer, games which were supposed to dethrone World of Warcraft after their release (yet failed to do so). But how many of you have heard of the game
Perfect World International
, the English adaptation of a popular Chinese MMO sequel? It's a free to pla
Breaking News: Applebee's to Open Up In Storm Peaks!
11/05/2009 à 14:14
The following is based on completely true facts. No part of this story has been doctored in any way, shape or form.
“Yes! Home from class early.” I run into my room and throw my bag on the floor, and jump on my computer. “Come on you stupid computer, load faster.” I put in my user name and password and off I go—I log in to find my Paladin in Storm Peaks, just where I had left him. “Alright, time to get my artisan flying, stop being lazy,” I tell myself, but who am I to kid? It’s not going to happen anytime soon. Too many shiny things to buy, so little gold to spend on them! I mount up; grab the reins of my…wooden mechanical flying machine, and whoooosh! Off I go at a moderate pace into the abyss.
Creak, crack, clank goes my flying machine. I’ve loved this thing since the day I spent way too much gold at the auction house to craft it. How I daydream as I’m flying towards Naxxramas and all my guild mates are flying past me at incredible speeds of the day I get to fly my epic mechanical flying machine, complete with hula girl doll, wind whipping through my long, flowing beard. Maybe if I just paint the face myself, and

Gamers Are Normal? Shh, Don't tell!
08/05/2009 à 21:34
Do you know someone who plays games, but isn't really a gamer? I've met a lot of what I like to call “normal” people in Azeroth. But wait, normal you say? Playing World of Warcraft?
How can this be?!
All kinds of people play WoW. People who are new to online gaming, or video and computer games period, have been constantly flocking toward what I consider the most full-featured and accessible MMO built to date. The number of people who had, previously, never ventured beyond Solitaire on Windows 3.1 is impressive. Now they're raiding and getting phat lewtz every week. How awesome is that?
Of course, everyone knows we gamers are far from normal. We fly around on mystical dragons, take magic carpet rides, and yes--we even have neighbors who waggle when they walk (sometimes named
So what exactly is normal when we're all responsible for this madness?
What exactly do you define as a “normal” person? Do you hide your gaming habits from others?
'Warcraft' Helps Swine Flu Researchers
08/05/2009 à 12:22
Some of you might remember the
pandemic from a few years back, when
became the Number 1 cause of death throughout the entire World of Warcraft.
Some of you (mostly those living in the Americas I guess) might be thinking about the recent
H1N1 outbreak, which is still a reason for a lot of worries among most families in not only the Americas, but other continents as well.
But have you even imagined that the two events may not only be similar in character, but that the players' behaviour during Hakkar's madness could be used by U.S. Department of Homeland Security? Well, it's not only possible, but it's happening!

Crygil recently announced some changes to the arena rating system. To give you a basic overview, they're changing the 3v3 and 5v5 rating systems to correct the imbalance between the ratings people can achieve in those brackets vs. the 2v2 bracket. Please note that they're also increasing the ratings requirements for the ilevel 239 weapons to compensate—

So our friends at
are rolling out a
exciting new project.
, and it's exactly what we've always wanted from an AddOn site—a simple, easy to use client that lets you manage your addons, update them all with a single click (or update them automatically when new versions come out), and does it all with the full permission of the authors and the sites involved—without gimping your features
your download speeds.
(who I'm a big fan of) and the team over there are just about to enter open beta, and they're looking for input from the Wowhead community. I'm looking forward to collecting a lot of feedback over here to give them—don't you guys let me down. ;)
We’ve got an FAQ for you guys here after the break (in addition to the more complete FAQ at WoWInterface
), as well as a couple of juicy screenshots after the break!
