The parrot spoke in a language I could not understand. Had I a cracker, I might try to coax the rainbow-colored Polly into guiding me to the nearest encampment...but empty-handed, I was forced to go it alone – all alone in the deep, damp jungle. The night was quickly approaching as the sun sat midway on the horizon. Unlike some of my unfortunate companions, I was smart enough to have brought my own set of charts and maps...but I suddenly realized that without proper knowledge I may as well not even possess them.
Insert Wowhead. We have a wonderful tool here aptly named
. In this blog entry I will introduce the mapping system and show how to use it to explore, pinpoint, and share destinations with others. Stick around, it's definitely going to be a mappy New Year!
In this harsh cosmos, one must learn to travel properly to keep from getting lost. What better way to travel than with a map? In the following steps I'll outline how to use the map tool so you can get the most out of it. We will use the Hogger quest line for our example.

The finished map should look something like
To remove a pin, simply click it second time. In order to share these maps with others, click the text 'Link to this map' at the bottom. Next, copy the URL from your Internet browser's address bar.
Using the Maps tool, and the Wowhead Looter mod, one is able to easily track coordinates in-game without a lot of bloat like some other add-ons. Type /wl maploc to toggle the use of coordinates on the world map with our add-on. For more information about the Wowhead Looter add-on and how you may help contribute dataz while exploring, click
So our question to you is:
have you used the map system before? What did you use it for?
