For all those of you in the process of clearing Ulduar right now, especially the hard modes:
Please be sure to run, and upload, from the
It's the only way we get these pages updated! :D
Wowhead: More Static to You
2009/05/13 at 10:30 PM
The development team here at Wowhead has made some changes to the way we serve up static content on our servers. We have been moving files that do not change often (such as images) to a new server to help improve the performance of the site. Today, we completed that move.
For those of you who are using the
Powered by Wowhead
tooltips or the
logos or search boxes, you should update your pages to take advantage of this performance gain.

Wowhead Comic #19

I know this was supposed to be posted yesterday, but hey, we all have bad days.
is finally mine. Apart from the amazingly adorable chubby little piggy, my favourite part of this event is the
achievement. It's not difficult, doesn't have a story behind it, no special significance, it's just ironically mean. And that amuses me. Just one of those fun, selfish and silly achievements.
And so this week's comic has no joke, no punchline, etc. Just lots and lots of delicious and moist cake.
Val'anyr, Hammer of the Ancients Kings
2009/04/25 at 3:30 PM
A little while ago we gave you a blog about the new
Legendary Healing Mace
. Now we feel ready to give you something more - the actual
Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings
As we feed on dataz, you will be fed on information. Here is what we know about the Hammer of the Ancient Kings:
Val'anyr is only usable by healing classes - druid, paladin, priest, shaman. No hunter loot!
You need 30
Fragment of Val'anyr
to start its short quest chain.
Fragments of Val'anyr have a chance to drop off all the bosses in
Heroic difficulty only
. This means you can only obtain the Hammer from Ulduar-25.
Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings
, the final quest, you will be given an item called Shattered Pieces of Val'anyr. You will need to
's mouth while he is casting
. You also need to fight and defeat Yogg-Saron with 3 or fewer Watchers assisting you.
Obtaining the Hammer of the Ancients Kings awards not only the legendary item, but the feat of strength [url=/?achieve

Ding ding, me again.
This week's script was written by and stars Koren (the BE priest lady). She's been hunting that darn
Time-Lost Proto Drake
for gosh knows how long, (so have I /sadface) and is frustrated how quickly it is snapped up by other people in the hunt for it.
So, good luck to her, and I hope she bags herself this prize mount soon. <3 (and me too)
Note: Please, for the sake of her sanity and mine, pretty please don't reply to this blog post saying, OH I HAVE ONE, I FOUND IT SO-SO EASILY, etc etc. Or blood vessels will burst. And she might stab me in the head with a pen. And, uh, ignore the fact she can't actually use a crossbow ingame, for comic purposes it's nifty and cute.
Ulduar Bosses (Part I)
2009/04/14 at 6:53 PM
Hello, there, eager and not-so-eager raiders and readers!
Patch 3.1 is upon us! And with it, I feel confident enough to present to you something new. For the first time in Wowhead's history, we have boss information and strategies, fresh from the PTR, as soon as the patch hits the Live realms!
Without further ado, I give you

Wowhead: Talent and Pet Calculators Upgraded!
2009/04/14 at 4:30 PM
So in the process of building the code to support the upcoming profiling tool, we discovered that a few upgrades needed to be made to our trusty old
. In honor of the release of
, we've decided to release a few of our upgrades a little early. :)
Introducing our shiny new upgraded
Calculators! You'll notice a number of fancy new changes, but here are the ones we're most excited about:
Our talent calculator now supports glyphs! Of special note: we used the glyph calculator for a while in beta and discovered that, while pretty, the normal glyph icons are frequently hard to identify at a glance—so we tweaked the glyphs to actually use the icon of the
, rather than the glyph icon itself. Much easier to use!
No more "link" button! The URL of the Talent and Pet Calculators now automatically updates whenever you add or remove a point—all you have to do is copy/paste the URL, and you're there!

Happy Chocolate-and-Egg-day everybody!
We have to suffer without our bunnies and eggies for a little longer this year, but at least we get them for more than a day!
For 2009, Noblegarden will be hitting the servers soonly after Patch 3.1 is released, and will last for a week! So we'll all have plenty of time to get our pretty dresses and tuxes.
Wowhead: New Lore and Roleplaying Forum!
2009/04/07 at 6:07 PM
I'm sure many will say that it's long overdue—Wowhead has now added a forum section for
Lore & Roleplaying
Now all of your Azerothian history discussions, story threads, and lore questions have a home here at Wowhead. Over the next hour or two we'll be moving all the lore and RP-related threads over into the new forum—feel free to use the "report" function to let us know if we missed any!
2009/04/01 at 2:00 AM
So you may have noticed a few changes around here!
Wowhead has updated with a sleek, exciting new
design. We're very excited about this new phase in Wowhead's development, and we hope you are too! We think it really takes Wowhead to the next level.
Please be sure to give us your thoughts and opinions at:
Learn more about the changes after the break.

Tuesday! Time for a comic!
Sorry for the delay folks, this one took me a while to draw.
Plus I had my first raid on Saturday night, so I was reading up fights for hours. ;o /excuses
This week's script was written by, and stars, Snowfi. The little pink-haired mageykins.
Without further ado, I give you
, during Tuesday Maintenance.
Those poor bosses finally get a few hours to themselves without random heroes turning up and trying to stick various spiky objects into their heads.
