I'm a Miner Forty-Niner
2009/01/08 at 12:41 AM
Just a quick update today. I thought it was worth pointing out that the
official patch notes
listed on the
European WoW Site
contained a very interesting note:
Mining veins and deposits no longer require multiple hits to receive all the ore. Players will receive around the same amount of ore, stone, and gems they would have received from multiple hits.
What's that? I can't hear you over the sound of millions of miners rejoicing.
Return of the Furious Five

Well, the five of us
had the time to get together and run again tonight, so I figured I'd take a moment to post again to make sure you knew I hadn't forgotten. :)
This time we ran
in about an hour, and found to our delight that we had time left over for a trip through the
– and it's a good thing we had the quest rewards from
Weaken the Ramparts
The Blood is Life
, or there would have been no loot at all (what good is
to a dedicated protection warrior?).
In the process of doing them, though, I got to thinking.
It's Flat! Using Wowhead Maps
2009/01/06 at 1:59 AM
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!
Dear Wowhead... (Episode 3)
2009/01/04 at 2:00 PM
The Wowhead advice column returns this week with a letter that comes to us from Tinker Town!
For generations my family has been some of Gnomeregan's finest engineers, inventors and demolitions experts. My Great-grandfather was the inventor of the indispensable Polyphonic Sub-Range Anaylyzer! I know right?!
But lately, my thoughts have wandered from electro-spanners and thorium plated thermal adjusters. I have desires... DARK desires. Why, just the other day I was in my father's work shop helping him reconfigure the micro-cog agitator matrix of his spectral reinstantiator when I started thinking how great it would be if I could "summon" forth some worker to walk in from the void and do the work for me.
Aren't Gnomes supposed to be engineers? All this fanciful arcane fascination with fallen magics is wrong isn't it?
Wowhead Comic #7

Happy New Year, everybody!
Comic theme is a little late, but I wanted to get back into the Sunday weekly release routine.
Gosh, darn those Night Elves and their pesky limb-stealing habits. Whatever shall we do?
Happy New Year!
2008/12/31 at 7:00 PM
All of us here at Wowhead just wanted to take a few moments to wish everyone a Happy New Year. Everyone please be sure to drive safely, drink responsibly, and don't forget your New Year's Resolutions!
I'm personally resolving to spend less time writing blogs and more time actually levelling my damn character. :) What about you?
Nameplates & Suggestions to Blizzard
2008/12/31 at 3:00 AM
In my entry today I'm going to discuss two little issues which I feel aren't being paid enough attention. Nameplates and the default threat system. You may be asking yourself, "What in Azeroth's three continents does threat and etched dinnerware have to do with each other?" The answer, of course, is you are silly. No, but seriously, these are two little topics which I'm going to present separately, then show you my suggestion to Blizzard to help truly maximize some of the already included features in the game.
Stick around for some exciting highs, disagreeable lows, and a lollercoaster ride you'll never forget. Okay, maybe not. Stick around anyway!
Holiday Security Issues & Advice
2008/12/29 at 12:00 AM
This is a notice to let everyone know there has indeed been a surge in account security resulting in hijacked accounts, stolen items, and even loss of characters. It is very important we stress the fact that everyone needs to have their operating system, Internet browser, virus scanners, and/or any malware scanners updated to the most current versions. Please take the necessary steps to ensure no one can gain access to your computer or account without permission.
According to Blizzard, majority of accounts are compromised by one of the methods listed here, after the break:

Welcome back to the Wowhead advice column!
Our next question comes to us from the smoky halls of Ironforge! Looks like our friend here is having some romantic troubles...I've included a translation from the original Dwarfish, for those who don't speak the language.

Just How Epic Are Your Lewtz?

The scene is the
of Hellfire Citadel. A small group of adventurers lurks in the shadows, while
Grand Warlock Nethekurse
broods atop his throne. Suddenly, the heroes are spotted! A fel orc rushes at them with a roar, but a blast of flame from the party’s mage drops him in his tracks. More orcs have gathered their wits and join the melee. One is tackled by a druid who transforms into a panther mid-leap. The warrior hero is toying with Nethekurse, parrying blows and dancing circles around him. Enraged, the Grand Warlock doesn’t see the rogue who steps out of the shadows and plants a knife in his back. The evil orc falls with a thunderous clash.
Recognize that fight? How many of you have fought it as well?
Because I never did.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for using our site. You guys are the reason why Wowhead is what it is – this site would be

Thanks to everyone also who participated in the

Wowhead Comic #6
2008/12/24 at 8:45 PM
Here's this week's comic, a little earlier than usual – and it's a big one!
Featuring myself, the Great-Fathers Winter, and my wonderful script writer, Web.
Your comic is early this week, so there won't be one on the 28th. I need a break! I've been a busy little girl lately.
Have an awesome holiday, everyone!
