Wowhead: About Us Page Update
2009/06/06 at 10:03 PM
So those of you who have been paying attention to detail will notice—our team is expanding, and we've finally made all of the appropriate updates to the
We've added some new full-time programmers to the team:

hunter pet calculator
system, as well as the upcoming
. It's been a huge oversight on our part that she hasn't been featured on the About Us page long before now.
We've also very recently added

very first contest
all the way back in 2006. You can read about him on the About Us page as well, not to men

Better late then never, eh?
This weeks comic was written by Oneric! And features his pretty little priest and our own

Keep the comic scripts coming guys! I'm still sifting through the emails but the ones I've received so far are pretty promising and I'll try to draw up those that really jump out at me with awesomeness.
More ramblings to come after the break...
Wowhead: Glyphs and Spells, Together at Last!
2009/06/01 at 12:09 AM
If you've ever wondered if there was a glyph that affected your
spell and what it did, you've probably been scouring
a filtered list of mage glyphs
in an effort to answer that question. We here at Wowhead were not satisfied with that as a solution, so we've made the task easier!
Pages for spells that can be modified by glyphs (such as
) will now have a tab called "Modified By" which lists all of the glyphs that can alter the spell. Conversely, glyph items (such as
Glyph of Lesser Proportion
) will now have a tab called "Modifies" which lists all ranks of the spell that it alters, allowing you to quickly review the spell and its normal effects.
Now, get out there and start inscribing!
Wowhead: Talent Calculator Updates!
2009/05/19 at 6:42 PM
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. :)
Wowhead: A Few Little Updates

We've added the

It's the only way we get these pages updated! :D
Wowhead: More Static to You
2009/05/13 at 10:30 PM
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
Powered by Wowhead
tooltips or the
logos or search boxes, you should update your pages to take advantage of this performance gain.
Naxxramas in Spanish

I know this was supposed to be posted yesterday, but hey, we all have bad days.
is finally mine. Apart from the amazingly adorable chubby little piggy, my favourite part of this event is the
achievement. It's not difficult, doesn't have a story behind it, no special significance, it's just ironically mean. And that amuses me. Just one of those fun, selfish and silly achievements.
And so this week's comic has no joke, no punchline, etc. Just lots and lots of delicious and moist cake.
Val'anyr, Hammer of the Ancients Kings

A little while ago we gave you a blog about the new
Legendary Healing Mace
. Now we feel ready to give you something more - the actual
Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings

Ding ding, me again.
This week's script was written by and stars Koren (the BE priest lady). She's been hunting that darn
Time-Lost Proto Drake
for gosh knows how long, (so have I /sadface) and is frustrated how quickly it is snapped up by other people in the hunt for it.
So, good luck to her, and I hope she bags herself this prize mount soon. <3 (and me too)
Note: Please, for the sake of her sanity and mine, pretty please don't reply to this blog post saying, OH I HAVE ONE, I FOUND IT SO-SO EASILY, etc etc. Or blood vessels will burst. And she might stab me in the head with a pen. And, uh, ignore the fact she can't actually use a crossbow ingame, for comic purposes it's nifty and cute.
Ulduar Bosses (Part I)
2009/04/14 at 6:53 PM
Hello, there, eager and not-so-eager raiders and readers!
Patch 3.1 is upon us! And with it, I feel confident enough to present to you something new. For the first time in Wowhead's history, we have boss information and strategies, fresh from the PTR, as soon as the patch hits the Live realms!

Wowhead: Talent and Pet Calculators Upgraded!
2009/04/14 at 4:30 PM
So in the process of building the code to support the upcoming profiling tool, we discovered that a few upgrades needed to be made to our trusty old
. In honor of the release of
, we've decided to release a few of our upgrades a little early. :)
Introducing our shiny new upgraded
Calculators! You'll notice a number of fancy new changes, but here are the ones we're most excited about:
Our talent calculator now supports glyphs! Of special note: we used the glyph calculator for a while in beta and discovered that, while pretty, the normal glyph icons are frequently hard to identify at a glance—so we tweaked the glyphs to actually use the icon of the
, rather than the glyph icon itself. Much easier to use!
No more "link" button! The URL of the Talent and Pet Calculators now automatically updates whenever you add or remove a point—all you have to do is copy/paste the URL, and you're there!
