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.
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.
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.
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..
