Lunar Festival Guide! (Feb 14 - Mar 7)

You know we couldn't let another holiday go by without one of Miyari's excellent
From the looks of it, this world event is going to be much closer to what we saw last year (unlike the
Love Is In the Air
event), so previous experience should apply. We've also pulled out all the stops to make a fully featured table with links to the locations of all the

Come take a look! We'll (of course) be updating it as the event goes on, and feel free to leave feedback here in this thread!
Yeah... We're Dropping Support for IE6
2010/02/10 at 8:10 PM
I'm sure this will come as no surprise. What with all the talk about security holes, and the advanced age of the browser (what, nine years now?), major websites are dropping IE6 support left and right—and that's not to mention the specific concern about the security of WoW accounts.
So let us say officially:
We will shortly be dropping support for Internet Explorer 6 (IE6)
Now for those of you who are stuck with this geriatric browser for whatever reason, don't despair! This isn't quite as harsh as it sounds—it doesn't mean the page is suddenly going to stop working completely in IE6. It only means that if we make a change or an update that makes the page look funny in IE6...well, we're not going to lose any sleep over it.
No longer worrying about maintaining support for this old browser will enable us to spend more time developing new features, and to make sure we're taking advantage of all the technological advances newer browsers have to offer.
So if you're still using
Wowhead Pride Contest (Still) Upcoming—and International
2010/02/10 at 7:04 PM
So you may remember us advising you about our upcoming
Wowhead Pride Contest
, originally mentioned in a blog post
. Obviously it's taken us a little bit longer than we initially planned to get rolling—we had originally scheduled the contest for January—but things are proceeding apace!
This means you just have a few short days to prepare to send in your pictures! Remember, all you have to do is take a photo of yourself sporting a
somewhere—and upload it via our contest page!
to submit a photo of yourself wearing one of our awesome

For those of you who prefer to do it manually, we also have full size printable versions of the logo available here:

Since the launch of the

Ahh, spring... when a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of the

Ladies and gentlemen, the
Love Is In the Air
event is set to begin this Sunday, February 7, so what better time for us to provide you with one of our own classic,
Remember, this event has been set up to change almost
from last year—there's a LOT of new content, and most of it isn't public knowledge yet. We've taken the time to dissect the information we have and try and construct in advance what you may be seeing this year—and as the event goes live, we'll be updating the guide in real time!

Last Thursday we posted a
guide to Cataclysm
, the upcoming WoW expansion. In that guide, we included a number of screenshots and photographs that we did not take, and they were not appropriately credited. Specifically, a number of them were taken from
, as well as a few that came from
World of Raids
and from the
Official WoW Magazine
This is seriously not cool, and should never have happened.
I have tremendous respect for all three of these editorial teams, and taking advantage of them is the last thing I would want to do.
By way of putting this right, I am currently going through the guide and adding credit where credit is due on all of the images I can find. If you happen to be reading the guide and you find an image that I missed—or if you are the owner of one of these images—please let me know via a comment here or via email at email@example.com so that you can be credited.

Having trouble sifting through all the new information about

We have a complete

Twitter Dev Chat
tomorrow, since last time a lot of people were asking questions the developers already answered at BlizzCon), a detailed explanation of the

new dungeons and raids

Star Trek Online Beta Keys for Premium Members
2010/01/14 at 12:18 AM
Just thought I'd take a moment to point out: the open beta for
Star Trek Online
has begun recently, but beta keys are hard to come by—unless, of course, you're a
here at Wowhead!
Here's How You Do It
Start by becoming a Premium user: click
and then follow the process.
Your Premium status is stored at
. When you
for Premium, Wowhead checks to see if you already have an account at ZAM, or at
, by cross-checking the email addresses. If you have a ZAM account already, it signs that account up for Premium and links it to your Wowhead account. If you don't, it silently creates a ZAM account (something like Malgayne|WH) and links THAT to your Wowhead account. Obviously we'll be streamlining this in the future. :P
In order to claim your Star Trek Online beta key, you need to log in to your ZAM account at
. But if you created your account silently, you won't have a password—so you need to go [url=
Shout-Out From Pawn

Those of you who use the addon
will know that it's a loot-ranking addon, which determines an item's score based on point values you attach to their particular stats—in a similar manner as our own
feature, only directly in the game.
Well, Pawn users may have also noticed a subtle change in the addon, just like
did this morning. See the image to the right. :)
Hi Pawn guys!
Looking Back on 2009... for Wowhead
2010/01/07 at 6:46 PM
In keeping with the tradition of the beginning of a new year, there have been a number of posts looking back on 2009, and all the interesting developments both in the world at large, and in our game of choice.
I thought, then, that I would take a moment to look at all the interesting developments here at Wowhead itself! There have been
a ton of changes
to the site here in the last year, and what better time to take stock than a new year?
