Create YOUR Own Wowhead Title!
2009/11/05 at 1:34 PM
That's right, folks, you saw it correct! You now get a chance to design your own title to be added to our pool of randomly generated witticisms you get to see every time you load the homepage!
You have asked for it, and we are giving it to you. There have been several threads on the forums, all of which asked us (nicely, of course) to add new sayings to our pool. We have read them all, but until recently time was just never enough to bother with something so small.
Well, we are as busy as ever, but this request of yours we can fulfill!
This is not a contest
, and there are no rewards beyond bragging rights. But think about how cool your friends will think you are when you go to them and say
"See that thing up there just after where it says "Wowhead: ..."? That's right, I gave them that idea!"
You would become a superstar in matter of seconds!
5 Years of WoW
2009/09/22 at 12:01 PM
Just as the new Onyxia encounter has reminded us, WoW has now been with us for five years. :)
I was preparing the posts and patch information for 3.2.2, and I couldn't help but wax melancholy (as I am wont to do) about my time in WoW. Five years makes for a lot of memories. It's not unusual to get
after a five year relationship—and yet here we are spending all of that time with a video game.
I even took some time to go back and look through how the World of Warcraft Official Site looked back in the day—does
look familiar to anyone? Dwarf mages, old fashioned troll and human models.../sigh. Those were the days.
So in honor of WoW's 5th anniversary, I've been asking the staff about their oldest and fondest memories of WoW. I've included a number of them here, after the break. Come and see!

I know this has nothing to do with anything. But I just wanted to point this out, because I think this is my new favorite comment on the entire site.
The comment is from the
Fiery Warhorse's Reins
, the epic land mount that drops from
Attumen the Huntsman
in Karazhan. Posted by

World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Addiction King!
2009/09/02 at 2:58 PM
Once upon a time, there was a Wowhead user who had a hard time managing his schoolwork because of World of Warcraft. But, as he had been playing WoW for over three years, he was reluctant to cancel his subscription. After a week of contemplation, he finally found enough strength to cancel. He even e-mailed Malgayne to have his Wowhead account banned too, hoping it would help his attempt to quit WoW.
The account’s next billing payment had been due in a week, so he figured that it would be a good time to cancel the recurring subscription. After that week had passed it was official: his WoW account was no longer active and his Wowhead account was banned until his return. Unfortunately, this did not stop him from continuing to read both the official forums and Wowhead’s forums. The urge to resubscribe was growing bigger by the day, but this user was determined to quit anything WoW-affiliated altogether until he could get his life back under control.
Fast forward to sixteen days after his WoW account became frozen. He was home sick and had nothing to do, and he was starting to feel better that day. With just WoW on his min
New Icons in PTR Build 10083
2009/07/10 at 6:00 PM
Build 10083 of the PTR was released today. In it were some small updates to spells, but nothing extravagant. I was about to end my day in The Datamines when I came across a rare boss: Iconus! As you know, you almost never see Iconus unless a new version of WoW is on the horizon, so when I saw him I was eager to take advantage of the opportunity. The skull beside his portrait worried me, but I had leveled many times since our last encounter and I figured I could take him down by myself.
I was wrong.
I gathered as many guild members as I could and we went back into The Datamines. 42 wipes, 250g in repairs, and plenty of cursing later, we downed Iconus. Nearly salivating, I looted his corpse... and found
new icon. :(
Furthermore, it was not an upgrade for any of us. However, it is Bind on Equip. Who wants it?
