New Profiler Feature: Pin Your Character, Get Gear Recommendations on Database Pages
2015/03/22 at 12:55 PM
We love showing personalized information on database pages that's powered via the

, you'll see a special "Upgrade for" section in Quick Facts when visiting any gear page. This lists the name of the character for whom it is an upgrade and clicking on it takes you to their Profile page. For raid items, which have multiple difficulties on each page, the recommendations specify what difficulty is an upgrade.
This is currently a simple comparison--it does not take into account item variations or recommend trinkets--but we have some more refinements coming to items soon. We're excited about using our Pin feature in a new way!

New Site Feature: Track Your Toy Box with Wowhead's Profiler
2015/01/13 at 4:14 PM
We've expanded our
to track even more in-game collections!
Users can now track their
collection on Wowhead
--browse what you still need to collect, filter by source, and see completion tracking info when viewing search results and item pages.
To get set up, you will need to verify your character. This is a one-time process.

From here, whenever you want to update your Toy Box data on Wowhead, do the following:
Log in to your character in-game (with the Wowhead Looter addon running). You don't need to open any tabs or perform any actions--just go in game!
Exit WoW, and use the Wowhead Client to submit your data to Wowhead
Hit "Update" on your Character Profile to see the latest information.
Note: We are investigating an issue where you may need to repeat this series of steps in order to have the Toy Box information appear. If you do not see toys on Wowhead, try repeating these steps.
Once that is done, Toy Box information will appear on your character's Profile. To return to this page, head to the "My Profiles" section of your user menu dropdown at the top right of any Wowhead page.
Your Profile will have a new "Toys" tab which displays all of your toys, broken down by source so you can easily decide which to collect. If you click the "Filter" option on the Profiler's header, you can hide different types of toys you don't want to collect--those from the opposite faction, requiring a profession, currently-unobtainable toys, and more.
Finally, if you click the "Pin" option on your Profiler's header, your Toy Box information is displayed when you browse toys across Wowhead. Quick Facts on Toy pages, search results with toys, and tooltips will have a checkbox showing completion for your character, so you can always keep track of what you do and don't have collected.

Site Updates: New Profiler Features, Custom Stat Weights and Reforging!
2011/03/10 at 3:33 PM
The Wowhead team is always working behind the scenes on ways to make our site an even better resource for our users. This week has been a particularly productive one. We've made several big changes here--all thanks to our community's constant feedback! We get a lot of requests from you guys and we're always happy to listen. Over these past few months,
has been brought up a lot. In particular, you've brought up adding a way to track raid progression.
Well, now you can. We're happy to announce that we recently added a raid progression tracker to Profiler. In addition to all the other awesome things it can already do, it can now tell you what dungeons are optimal for your level and gear. In just one glance, Profiler can tell you what ones you have completed and your current raid progression as well.
Of course, Profiler's raid utilities aren't the only thing we've enhanced. We also improved on Wowhead's ability to help you choose gear and see how your stats change with every choice you make. We've done this primarily through two other recent updates: the ability to reforge items and the ability to create cust
