Icecrown Citadel: The Lower Spire (Feedback Wanted)
2009/12/09 at 2:20 AM
Long time no see in the blog, eh Wowhead? I've been working on a few projects on the site (one of which you should see now, and one - soon) and my finals week coinciding with the new epic patch didn't exactly buff my free time. But it's mostly over now, and I should have enough time to post interesting stuff again! However for now you are stuck with the same old boring stuff - bosses :)
With the new patch out, I've made some tweaks to the boss pages. The coolest thing for me are the new tabbed abilities - now each difficulty has its own section, reflecting all the little things that make this difficulty level unique. I think that's pretty cool feature - and it looks really neat too! :)
The boss pages have the basic overview of the fights for the Lower Spire, but I have also included shorter versions of kind of "to go" tips here. And with this we get to the core question of this blog:
Do you think the overviews are sufficient/redundant, and if you could change something about the boss pages design, what would it be?
Please look at the list of bosses after the break and post your thoughts!

to your items! Just right-click on the item icon at the top to add a gem or enchantment, and the stats will automatically update—including the set bonuses.
You can now set your level using a dropdown in the top right, and all your ratings calculations and heirloom item statistics will update.
You can also click on the Rating levels in the columns to change the display to percentages instead!
Combat ratings will now be displayed in the "Gains" row as percentages.
Go start adding things to your
and see for yourself!
Dynamic Heirloom Tooltips!
2009/12/05 at 3:04 AM
I know, the time we've taken implementing this is pretty inexcusable. But that doesn't mean we can't make a big fuss about it when it gets here!
You can now adjust the level of an heirloom item in the tooltip, and the stats will automatically update. You can do this with
just like you could with items like
Cryptfiend Silk Cloak
, which have combat ratings. Heirlooms default to level 80, but you can see them at any level with just a click!
Also, if you're messing with the
, your heirloom stats will automatically adjust to match the level of the character you're editing. This is especially awesome if you're editing a
, as you can change your level around at will and watch your stats update in real time.

We're going to be going down for a brief server maintenance in just a few minutes. Don't panic, just have to make a few quick changes over at the datacenter. We'll be back online at about 1 AM PST—that's two and a half hours from now.
I know, it's tough. But we'll be back and faster than ever come 1 AM, and in the meantime...well, there's always
Wowhead Profiler: Queue Maintenance
2009/11/24 at 5:56 PM
Just wanted to issue a quick warning—the
resync queue will be under maintenance today until the evening. There's been a small incident involving a plate of spaghetti—trust me, you don't want to know the details!
All of the aspects of the Profiler should be working normally—but all Armory resyncs will be queued up, and will not get synced until the queue is restarted again.
We'll be back to normal in a few hours!

A little while ago, the very talented Keydar from
Dark Legacy Comics
created a fine piece of art.
Since we did not have a blog to post about it at the time, we felt like we would share it again for everyone to enjoy!
New Items in Patch 3.3!
2009/11/14 at 1:55 AM
We've made some updates to the
page! You can now conveniently see all of the items we've gathered from the PTRs, neatly sorted by item level. It displays a tab for each major item level tier, and allows you to filter the results to your heart's content.
You can filter globally using the quick search box, or on a per-column basis by right-clicking them. Remember that not all of these items have drop data yet. This will come in time, but we need your help—so be sure to send us your
, and be sure to run the
on your PTR installation of WoW!
Go check out the list, and keep checking back—you might just find something no one else has caught yet...
Wowhead Blog: 1 Year Old Today!

That's right, the Wowhead Blog is 1 year old today!
I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you guys for your readership, your comments, and your support for the past year—as well as a huge thank you to all of our
for their ceaseless contributions. I'm proud of what the blog has become (from our
last year), and I'm looking forward to another year. :)
What's New Page Updated
2009/11/11 at 6:06 PM
page has been updated with our latest projects, and some shiny new artwork!
We've actually been stealth-fixing this page for a while. We originally had an "Under Development" page in its place, but we decided we'd rather keep the big things a surprise (stay tuned for some cool surprises this month, btw). We've changed the page over to a "
" page now, so you can always check there and see the latest things we've added.
Go take a look!
Weight Scale Updates
2009/11/09 at 7:59 PM
Wowhead has made a long overdue update to the
We've gone through the sticky threads and pulled the best weights we could find to update our weight scale system, so the
should now be showing much more realistic results.
There ARE a few weight scales that are still out of date though! Our Blood Death Knight scale still doesn't have a value for agility, and our Frost Tanking scale still has old numbers. We're changing the way these scales get updated so we should be much quicker to get the scores up to date—but we need your help!
