The icon and the front page seem to think we're still in MoP Beta :P
We'll get around to fixing it soon--just lower priority than the new data right now. Those file changes talked about in the Alpha announcement made things a lot harder than we thought.
Figured, just wanted to mention it in case it slipped by you :)
It's been a while since I saw stats on armor this low (because of the stat squish), which I'm not saying it's a bad thing, more like home. I hated Cata for inflating stats and ending off with the worst raid ever, Dragon Soul. I'm still hyped for this expansion and I'm just itching to get into the beta.
This might be a weird question, but #yolo. Is datamining faster now that Blizz uses the new file format?
Oh man, I wish--the file format changes caused all sorts of delays. The Wowhead team is awesome and figured them out, but the changes led to many complications and we've got a lot of data refinement to do in order to get some database frills functional again.
Perculia, will be there any icons, models, maps and other awesome things after you deal with the new file format?
Yes, icons funnily enough are one of the first things we put up when usually datamining, but now they're one of the trickiest things. Items took hours to work out and there's still some problems with items that have spell uses attached. We ended up having me go through various CSVs and pull out interesting names/descriptions as we were waiting on the WoD database to launch.
That Ever Changing WoW! Nuff said.......
I bet if you asked really really nice Blizzard would give you guys a tool to extract this stuff easier....
