Wowhead Reddit AMA, October 9th
2012/10/09 at 9:38 AM
Curious what the people are like who make Wowhead run? Ever wanted to ask us something but felt it seemed off-topic in a blog's comments? With Mists of Pandaria two weeks old and everyone using Wowhead for help, we thought it would be a great time for you to get to know the people behind the site more!
Ashelia and I will be doing an AMA at 10 a.m. PDT over at /r/WoW.
We'll link the thread here when it goes live--be sure to up-vote any questions you'd really like us to answer! Looking forward to seeing your questions.
Edit: it's live!
New Site Features: Battle Pets Map and Visual Pet Database
2012/09/24 at 5:06 PM
The entire Wowhead team has been hard at work updating our database to the MoP version of data so be sure to check it out! We have
a battle pet database
a new world map
, and every section of the database updated to Mists of Pandaria's latest. We'll continue to be updating the site throughout the week as well.
The addition of pet battles is one of the biggest features Blizzard's bringing with Mists of Pandaria and it's the one we worked especially hard on. Here are the two features we've added to make your pet collecting a lot smoother:
A visual pet battle database for every pet out there
Search for detailed pets with a variety of filters: source, location, and more
See every pet's detailed stats and information
Search by images or plain text to find the perfect pet
A complete world map showing every pet location
Find pets by zone to add to y
Wowhead's Patch 5.0.4 Guide
2012/08/28 at 12:46 PM
5.0.4 is live today and we have an extensive guide to everything new! While there's no new raids or gear in this patch, many things will keep you busy. Class abilities, talent trees, and glyphs have been drastically changed, so it's good there's a month before Mists of Pandaria to familiarize yourself with the changes! If achievement-hunting is more your thing, all achievements are account-wide in 5.0.4, as well as many mounts, pets, and titles.
Below, you'll find consolidated versions of our 5.0.4 feature coverage, as well as patch notes, videos, class guides, and links to blue posts.
Patch Notes and Overview
The talent system received an extensive overhaul
: players get one talent every 15 levels now, for 6 maximum in MoP. Specialization and core class abilities have changed as well.
Prime glyphs are removed
and many new minor vanity glyphs are added.
Achievements are now account-wide
and some can even be completed across characters. In addition, many mounts, pets, and titles are account-wide as well.

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
