New Site Feature: Class Guides Revamp, Spectral Tiger Giveaway
2015/07/02 at 4:50 PM
Last year we launched class guides on Wowhead, written by members of the WoW community. This got a great response and we continued to update them each patch, but we are always looking to improve upon new features.

We are very excited about the work that has gone into these, and we're excited to share them with you! The authors put a great deal of work into these guides, and it shows.
