So... Two different sites for the exact same info? Seems pointless. P=Hasnt it always been that way? just thottbot had more user comments, some useful, and some were pointless chatter about something unrelated to the page it was on about how some guy is a jackass and got so may negative votes it's not even being shown and and we were forced to sift through it trying to figure out what they were talking about and forgot the whole reason we went to that page to begin with.
While I like wowhead, Thottbot had a much simpler interface that got the job done much easier. It really is a shame to lose such a great resource.
I am stunned at the loss of the independent library. What a tragedy! Thottbot was full of useful info. It was a great companion to Wowhead. The world of player lore just got a lot poorer.
The move is a decent one, and I'm glad the thott interface is still up. Thott was always lighter, and wowhead annoys me with the party poker pop-up (which seems to be on a few sites). Overall though wowhead has become a pretty decent resource with a good sense of community.It's a shame though to lose all of those old comments. It's interesting to go back and be reminded of the vanilla days. Granted some posts were a waste of bits, but at least it was never as bad as YouTube comments. YouTube comments herald the end of everything.
Eww. Thottbot has a layout of a highschool Web design class' first website."Alright class, open up Frontpage and go to navigation, I'm going to show you how to use parent and child navigation structures today!" "Where do I find navigation? is that in the white area?"... And Thottbot was created.
Wowhead gets more traffic than Thottbot these days, but there's still a significant minority of people who use Thottbot for something. We're trying to make sure those people aren't left entirely out in the cold.HTTP 1.1 301 Permanent Redirect should do the trick.
Also, TB is actually readable on my smartphone where WH is not.

On my Ipod Touch, WoWhead is quite readable (but it's no smartphone).
Mines not a smartphone and it does have issues with wh, took me a while but i did finally get wow general working although a bit difficult since it isn't formatted well but that's the only boad i can get to work. I wish I had known tb was working on phones sooner...like before the boards were taken down -.-
People will be upset now.. but in a few weeks people will be used to it and will stop crying.Every time something happens on the internet which is not every day life, everyone starts crying, a week later suddenly no one cares anymore. See: Youtube and every time they change something. People get upset, people get over it.Same thing applies.

Lol, love when people don't look at post dates heh.
ZAM owns thot too? i thought wowhead, thot, and allakhazam were enemys back then, and i think wowhead won :3Probably due to blizzard endorsing it.
This happened almost four months ago. If you're only just now 'witnessin' this, and hadn't noticed it before, clearly you weren't as devoted to thottbot as you thought you were.
Thottbot has been my Homepage for 5 years, not going to change anytime soon.
Thottbot has been my Homepage for 5 years, not going to change anytime soon.No one is asking you to. Thottbot.com will still be around, and still look more or less the same. The only difference is that six months ago, ZAM decided that running two database sites for the same game was redundant and decided to keep Wowhead as the database Thottbot draws it's information from. About all you're missing is the Thottbot comments and the forums, which I think most of the Thottbot community set up shop at Thottbot-Legends.
this is stupid it only shows the armor for players who have accounts lvl 80 and higher. it dont show armor or weapons for people with like a 30 pally. before they did this it showed all the armor and weapons for every level. i say change it back.
What? If you are trying to use the search engine to look up gear then just refine the search using the level required box. You can also use the dropdowns to search for what drops in instances. Go to database /zones /dungeons. Play around with the search engine for awhile and you'll find it works quite nice.Also, Welcome to Wowhead.
wow I actually still had this site saved from my first days on WoW so many years ago! I remember idolizing Thott on EQ as The Bard to Emulate ( I never came close, go figure) but I practically lived on the Thottbot site after I gave up on EQ and came here. Glad to see it's still around even if it's now a subsidiary site..
