Introducing Wowhead News 2.0
2012/06/07 at 6:56 PM
Almost exactly a year ago we launched Wowhead News. Its intention was to make the blogging our content team did more visible and it certainly did exactly that.
However, a lot of people had problems with the layout. It wasn't styled like Wowhead, it wasn't practical in design, and its separate domain gave everyone a headache--especially the part where it would log people out frequently and make commenting difficult.
So a while ago, when we were talking about what features we'd like to do for our community, I threw out the idea that I'd eventually like to see Wowhead News redone in a style more becoming of Wowhead. As it turns out, so did the rest of the Wowhead team!
Today I'm proud to reveal the fruit of our labor:
Wowhead News 2.0
, a version that truly returns to its roots. We hope you like it--be sure to check out the sidebar as well for some awesome new features, including a featured guide box as well as the most popular addons from
Please report any issues or suggestions right here in the comments and we'll stay on it for the remainder of this week and next.
New Site Feature: 3D Modelviewer Redone and Pandaren Added!
2012/04/11 at 9:06 PM
The ability to view models in 3D has always been a highly popular Wowhead feature. For some time now, we've had the ability to click on almost anything in the database and see its 3D model in Flash or Java. However, it's been overdue for some bug fixes and improvements over these past few months.
That's why I'm really happy to announce that we have
a brand new Flash 3D model viewer
on Wowhead as of today! Alayton has been hard at work for some time now on rewriting the viewer and we're launching it today.
Here are some of the new features:
Flash Modelviewer Instead of Java
Make sure you have updated to the latest version of Flash; if your version is outdated, it may not load properly!
Debugging and support is a lot easier this way as we only have to focus on one platform
More people use and prefer Flash so it made sense to use it over Java
Significantly faster load times
Improved particle effects and details
A new race option: Pandaren!
Pandaren are very much still in beta, so some emotes and armor may not work properly (helmets do not work on them

Wowhead's Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Sweepstakes
2012/02/03 at 5:31 PM
This giveaway is now closed. We will be emailing and announcing winners on Monday.
If you visit Wowhead, you're probably like me and you love RPGs. This means you have more than likely heard of the upcoming
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
--an open-world RPG of an immense scale that lets you define your own destiny and story (check out the demo
, if you're interested). It also means you more than likely want your own copy.
And if that's the case, then I have some awesome news for you.
We have six
special edition Reckoning game bundles
which include maps, cards, and the game itself to give away at Wowhead this week and next. To top it off, we're giving away a grand prize of
a collector's edition of Reckoning
which includes everything in the special edition along with some added bonuses: a 12.5" troll figure and a lithograph signed by Ken Rolston! As I'm told, only 700 of these unique sets have been produced, so this is pretty sweet.
We'll be giving them away at 12:01PM PDT next Friday, February 10th, 2012. To enter to win, all you have to do is the following...
New Site Feature: Same Model As Tab
2012/01/30 at 5:23 PM
We've had a tab that's shown you similar models on Wowhead for quite a while, but let's face it, it's been inconsistent. While helmets and shoulders have always been steadfast as they could be automatically generated, many accessories have had no such tab or have had a tab with incorrect data. Belts in particular could be misleading, because many belts had the same textures but ended up looking nothing alike; the same goes for breastplates and boots.
Luckily for you guys, though, we've been working on it--for a long time, in fact.
Since August, we have manually been crunching out thousands of items and matching them up every week. This has been a tremendous effort on behalf of all the content team, especially Perculia, and I'm really happy to announce that it's finally done and live on Wowhead right now!
In short, every item on the database should have an accurate same model as tab. From
Breastplate of Cruel Intent
Ancient Spellcloak of the Highborne
, we've gone through every item and matched them up
. You may have to refresh your cache and give things time to settle to see all of them, as the data push on the site just went live, but the feature is now officially launched--and we wanted to give everyone the good news! To check it out, just go to

2012/01/10 at 2:58 PM
2011 was a busy year for us at Wowhead and we're looking at 2012 now as we pick and choose the projects we want to put out. The problem is there's a lot of things we want to do and time is always our most valuable resource, so we could use a little help.
That's where you come in--we really want to examine 2011's project load and see what our community thought of it, in particular which one they felt was the most successful and most desired feature. Maybe you really liked
the transmogrification sets
and would like more of those such database enhancements in the future; perhaps you were drawn to
; or it's possible that you really like being able to pen a solid guide in
our guide section
. Either way, it's time to tell us!
So cast your vote on the poll and sound off in the comments on what features you liked the most on Wowhead this past year! If it's a tie, feel free to vote for more than one option! Also, if you want to read about these features further, they're covered on

Portuguese (Brazilian) Wowhead Now Live
2011/12/21 at 3:23 PM
Ever since Blizzard introduced a
Portuguese version of WoW for 4.3
, our users have been clamoring for a Portuguese version of Wowhead.

We plan to be adding more translated material to the website in the upcoming few weeks--and if we require additional volunteers for localization work, we'll update our needs at our

Wowhead's Patch 4.3 Guide
2011/11/29 at 1:29 PM
4.3 just went live, so we've released an extensive guide to help get you started! From innovative dungeons and raids to vanity features like Transmogrification, there's something for everyone's playstyle. After the daily quest grind and reused content in Firelands, 4.3 is a welcome contrast--it's shaping up to truly be unique and epic as the final showdown with Deathwing draws near.
Below, you'll find consolidated versions of all of our 4.3 feature coverage, as well as patch notes, Dungeon Journals, and loot tables. Big thanks to Perculia for covering many of the 4.3 features, Krelumian for his awesome video, and Neutronimity for helping with the coding.
