Patch 3.3 Guide - Recent Updates
2009/11/06 at 6:00 PM
The reason for this out-of-the-blue blog are some recent updates to the
Patch 3.3 Guide
we released about 3 weeks ago. Several PTR builds have hit us since then, I have been updating the index page of the guide, and occasionally dropping a reply in the blog, but all of those have been somewhat subtle. So here is the official announcement of what has been updated and how it has been updated.
Note: We know we've been spamming you with blogs a lot lately, but this one had to be done. And better now than when Halls of Reflection, or some other major feature appears on the PTR. Blizzard has really made us work for this patch.
Create YOUR Own Wowhead Title!
2009/11/05 at 1:34 PM
That's right, folks, you saw it correct! You now get a chance to design your own title to be added to our pool of randomly generated witticisms you get to see every time you load the homepage!
You have asked for it, and we are giving it to you. There have been several threads on the forums, all of which asked us (nicely, of course) to add new sayings to our pool. We have read them all, but until recently time was just never enough to bother with something so small.
Well, we are as busy as ever, but this request of yours we can fulfill!
This is not a contest
, and there are no rewards beyond bragging rights. But think about how cool your friends will think you are when you go to them and say
"See that thing up there just after where it says "Wowhead: ..."? That's right, I gave them that idea!"
You would become a superstar in matter of seconds!

Wowhead Comic #21
2009/07/05 at 6:30 PM
Happy Midsummer Fire Festival, everyone!
Uh, nevermind. I'm a bit late for that now. Oh well! Its done at least.
Here's a Festival comic written by our lovely
. She raised the technicalities relating to the quests to
of the other factions main cities. So you've taken a flame, great! How? On a stick? And even then, where do you keep it, to stop it going out on your rush back to hand it into the NPC?
How about in your pocket? Well, that wouldn't be very safe now, would it? Your clothes would catch on fire..
Apologies again for the lack of comics lately, I've been incredibly busy, and I still don't have a full time comic writer!
Reminder: If you have any short WoW related comic scripts, or any comic ideas, please dont be afraid to mail them to me via
, I do read them all, even if I dont have the time to draw them all!
Edit: Yes. Miyari is wearing Horde-Boxer-S
Wowhead Scheduled Maintenance (7/7, 2am EST)

On Tuesday, July 7th, Wowhead's database will be undergoing maintenance from 2am-5am Eastern time. During that time, the site will not be accessible. Users are advised to begin panicking... now.
In all seriousness, we're upgrading the firmware for our database server's RAID array. If you don't know what that means, then just know that we are making the site dataz safer.
