Wowhead Weekly Ep 10
WoW 10th Anniversary
New Year's Eve in Azeroth, Wowhead's 2012 Year In Review
on 2012/12/31 at 11:08 AM Pacific
It's time once again for Azeroth to celebrate New Year's Eve with a nice
Filled Festive Mug
and fireworks--catch them at the top of the hour in major cities and Booty Bay, but
not to drunkenly PvP in Booty Bay since the guards are asleep.
Don't forget to /dance back at the Revelers to get
Celebrate Good Times!
, which increases all stats by 10% for 30 minutes. Drinking
Filled Festive Mug
also gives you a neat slowfall effect--
Whether you're relaxing in-game or heading out to celebrate, have a Happy New Year!
Happy New Year! Join the celebrations starting at 6:00 a.m. realm time, December 31, and check out the fireworks in the skies above the cities every hour on the hour. Sample the exotic brews and libations carted in from around the world of Azeroth, and /dance your way into the new year as a part of the celebration. For those looking to avoid trouble—or get into it—you may want to steer clear of—or head toward—Booty Bay as the guards there appear to be spending more time enjoying themselves than enforcing town rules (at least into the morning hours).
Wowhead's 2012 Year in Review
It's hard to believe that for most of 2012, we were all farming Dragon Soul instead of exploring Pandaria. However, even when things seemed routine in game, the Wowhead staff stayed busy with new features, fixes, and guides. While we won't bore you with all the bug fixes and custom data tweaks, here's a list of the site's most interesting new features, guides, and contests in the past year! You can check out the
section for a more detailed list of additions.

We released another massive transmog feature: the
Same Model As Tab
. We manually sorted 20,000 items by identical models/patterns as this information cannot be automatically generated with game data.
We teamed up with our friends at
to bring you a featured AddOn of the Week--highlighted in our news roundups.
It was a quiet time for blue posts after the holidays and 4.3's launch, but we passed the time with a series of giveaways and guides from
TCG vanity items
Building upon the successes of our holiday guides, we created an enhanced guide for
Love is in the Air
with special formatting and graphics. These enhanced guides with customs and fonts became so popular, we decided to give all holiday and patch guides this artistic treatment! Check out some of the other enhanced guides like the
Midsummer Fire Festival Guide

To celebrate Noblegarden, we held a scavenger hunt on the database with tons of
thanks to Cryptozoic!
Transmog sets were reorganized and renamed, most notably for green-quality BoE sets in which items would share the same name, but not the same color scheme. Over 200 sets were added and modified based on user feedback.
Some users wanted a list of identically-colored items, not just a "Same Model As" tab, so we added all obscure identical items to popular transmog sets.
Tooltips for Mists of Pandaria abilities now display spell percentages and coefficients.
We gave away some headsets and copies of Family Guy with our
Family Guy giveaway

We held a huge
Mists of Pandaria beta key giveaway
with over 525 beta keys for Wowhead and WoW Interface users. To keep it interesting, users entered by participating in the Midsummer Scavagener Hunt, instead of simply commenting to win.
We updated our Mists of Pandaria
to have glyph functionality.
Account-wide filters were added in 5.0.4 for
. Quick facts boxes were also updated to show account-wide mounts and pets.
Beta coverage continued with a series of

September was a huge month for Wowhead, with Mists of Pandaria launching:
For MoP's launch, we unveiled several new features for battle pets: an
The MoP database was fully integrated into our live database. Custom work including new
Same Model As
tabs for all MoP items.
We had a number of guides for MoP's release, most notably our
Reputation Quick Facts
Profession Quick Facts
Pre-Raid Gear Guide
Additional filters were added, such as PvP Power, PvP Resilience, and items found on the Black Market Auction House.
Spell scaling and item stat scaling were updated for level 90.
Soon after MoP launched, 5.1 hit the PTR, so we were back to datamining and writing about new content.
We collaborated with
The Undermine Journal
to bring you updated Buyout information on item pages.
We launched the
User of the Month
program, which rewards users that comment, take screenshots, and upload client data with the chance to win monthly prizes.
We revised our

Links to Wowhead News articles and helpful fansites were integrated into many popular database pages, such as Classes, Zones, Professions, and Reputations. Many thanks to all the blogs who use our tooltips!
To give you a taste of what goes on behind the scenes, the Wowhead staff did a
and I did an interview at
We released two big features in November 2012, item upgrades and enhanced tooltips.
Item Upgrades in 5.1:
Item Comparison Tool
now supports Item Upgrades. An "Upgrade" option has been added to the item menu (click on the icon to access), which will automatically adjust the tooltip and all the stats. Go to
to get started!
Search results now display an "Upgrades" column between "Req." and "Side." This column displays icons if the item can be upgraded, and mousing over an icon shows an upgraded version for easy reference. There is also a new search filter:
Can Be Upgraded
Toggle options on all item pages display an approximation of the upgraded stats, including trinket procs, which aren't displayed in the in-game UI. Quick Facts displays the currency cost for all upgrades.
We added an option to our advanced tooltip code to display upgraded items instead of the basic version. Adding "upgd=" and specifying the upgrade amount (1 or 2) will display the new version.
Player abilities (class abilities, talents, glyphs, specializations) now have additional ability information in the
"Type" column on search results
. This information can be clicked on to bring up further ability filters.
tab was added to all MoP ability pages to show what buffs/modifies a specific ability: class abilities, talents, glyphs, and specializations. In addition, we also included what MoP set bonuses modify abilities.
Based on user feedback, tooltips received numerous updates:
Tooltips have been redesigned to better match the new in-game layout.
Achievements: Number of points rewarded, faction-specific, account-wide progress
Abilities: Class, required level, required specialization, new layout highlighting ability changes per spec, race.
Items: Account-wide mounts, required ilvl for gems, stackable amounts, drop location, drop percentage.
Battle Pets and Daily Quests now marked as such on top right.
The tooltip code for blogs was also updated to include
more customization options
