Introducing Wowhead's Design Revamp
2014/05/06 at 12:36 PM
Today the Wowhead team is proud to present our front-page design revamp! We've all wanted this for a while and we're thrilled to finally share it with you.
Each expansion, we evaluate how we present our site's content and if we can do anything better. For Mists of Pandaria, we
refined the layout of Wowhead News
to better serve our community--we streamlined the design, added some features to the sidebar, and changed the domain.
For Warlords of Draenor, we want our community to be better informed about our frequent database updates as well as our in-depth content previews. Many users love our
and blogs announcing
new site tools
, but we've also heard from other users that they aren't aware of these posts due to the front page layout.
Upcoming Wowhead Design Revamp
2014/05/01 at 11:08 AM
Each expansion, the Wowhead team evaluates how we present our content and if we can do anything better. For Mists of Pandaria, we
refined the layout of Wowhead News
to better serve our community--we streamlined the design, added some cool features to the sidebar, and changed the domain.
Looking forward to Warlords of Draenor, there are some improvements we want to make. Many users love our
and blogs announcing
new site tools
, but we've also heard from other users that they initially miss these posts due to the site's design. The current front page is a bit cramped with the search box, dropdown menus, and news featurebox practically on top of each other!
Our goal at Wowhead is to provide as much information to players as possible, so the Wowhead team has been hard at work on a front-page redesign. We're putting more of our current content on Wowhead's front page--Alpha previews, guides, and news roundups including current Twitter posts from the
Blue Tweet Tracker
. The layout tweaks also allow us to highlight more features such as
on the navigation menu and the
on the sidebar.

Site Updates: Blue Tweet Tracker, Profiler Additions, Hearthstone Dust Costs
2014/03/21 at 12:55 PM
This past week we've launched several more updates to popular tools! For a complete list of new features we've been working on, check out our
Hearthstone Dust Costs
Dust costs have now been added to guide pages as well as guide filters if you've saved your collection to Hearthhead!
Deck Quick Facts now show crafting costs. When a user is logged in and has a collection saved with our
Card Collection Tool
, it also shows your personalized crafting cost based off the number of cards you've already collected.
Decks can now be filtered by total crafting cost, and there is a new sortable "cost" column in results.
For logged in users with cards saved via
, there's a new sortable "My Cost" column in guide results. Users can also filter for "My Crafting Cost" which takes into account existing cards they have collected.
Since the Profiler tracks many character details, we've expanded it to now track Talents/Glyphs as

New Site Feature: Blue Tweet Tracker
2014/03/04 at 2:23 PM
World of Warcraft
team has really embraced Twitter this past expansion--it's led to a lot of great interactions between the players and those working on the game.
However, it's easy to lose track of conversations quickly or sort out the important tweets from the conversational ones, so we've built a
Blue Tweet Tracker
to make things easier!
By default, you'll see tweets from developers and community members
designated by Blizzard as official accounts
. Using the menu at the right, you can customize it further:
You can choose to only see significant tweets, which are marked as important by Wowhead staff. Important announcements from
or WoD information like the new racials would be considered significant.
To avoid clutter, we've hidden conversations that are one-on-one replies since they may be more personal or incidental. If you want to see all of a user's tweets though, there's an option to do so. Sometimes Blizzard devs include useful information in conversations, so it's good to enable both "Show @ replies" and "Show significant tweets."[/l

We're always striving to improve the Wowhead browsing experience and today we have a big feature to share with you--

Our tablet version has all the same content as regular
, just much more touchscreen-friendly. We've made improvements like redesigned page layouts and a new menu and tab system for easier navigation.
Whether you're looking forward to playing Hearthstone on your tablet or are farming in WoW and don't want to alt-tab to look something up, our optimized sites will make finding what you need even faster when you're on a tablet.
We also wanted to mention that we know a lot of users have also been asking for a smartphone version of our websites--and we haven't forgotten about that. Hearthstone is very tablet-orientated though and we wanted to test out responsiveness on
at first--smartphones could always be down the line.
