StarCraft II Race Guides on ZAM
2010/05/26 at 7:09 PM
I know this isn't a World of Warcraft-related post, but trying to pretend that we're not all flipping out over
isn't going to fool anyone, so let's just call it straight, shall we?
Our friends at
have posted a lovely series of guides to the new races in StarCraft II, so if you're interested in being at the top of your game when the doors open wide in June, you'd best take a look!
Security and Malware: Serious Business
2010/05/25 at 2:39 PM
Since the release of the
, there has been a significant increase in people using our
to upload data to our servers so they can see all of their character's tasty dataz. Also, as always, World of Warcraft accounts continue to be compromised, resulting in people losing items or even full characters. It's no surprise that some people who have lost accounts after downloading and using the Wowhead Client think that the client is the cause for the loss of their account.
While this may seem like a natural conclusion, I'd like to take a moment to remind everyone that
correlation does not imply causation
. It's always a good idea to do some research in cases like this to verify a possible relation between the two events. In an effort to help, I thought it might be useful to answer some questions about our site and our client.

The buff should reach an astonishing

Remember, as before, you can always request that the buff be removed if you want to try the encounter in its most difficult form.
Wrath of the Lich King: Exhausted?
2010/05/24 at 2:02 PM
I have been playing WoW for close to 3 years now, I think. One of the main things that has kept me
in the game so long was a basic MMORPG concept, that Blizzard developed to great heights - there is always stuff to do. If it's not leveling, then it's questing. If it's not questing, it's money-making. If it's not money-making, it's gearing up. If it's not gearing up, it's raiding. If it's not raiding, it's achievement farming. I could probably go on for a while (without mentioning PvP, I don't really do that).
So okay, there is always stuff to do. The game is endless, and that's one of its charms.

A Look at WotLK Progression Statistics
2010/05/20 at 5:52 PM
from the Rawrcast tipped me off to an article they had up on their
that takes a look at progression statistics for WotLK.
I thought this was really interesting to look at—it tracks how quickly people progressed through the starting content in WotLK versus how quickly they progressed through ICC, and what percentage of players are actually completing the content, and draws some interesting conclusions about what we can expect to see in Cataclysm.
The article is here:
