Goodbye "Wowhead," Hello "Rifthead"
2011-04-01 в 02:10
Unbeknownst to the general public, there have been some talks about changing our site's name in the past months. Frankly, as a name brand, "Wowhead" isn't as memorable as we'd like—the word doesn't convey solid imagery and it isn't very marketable. For a while now we've been hunting through the thesaurus, trying to find a word that really got what both World of Warcraft and our unique fansite are really all about.
Recently, it hit us: conflict. WoW is a game that's rife with conflict and its resolution, a game enveloped in rifts and their closures.
This is an especially relevant observation now. Since the advent of Cataclysm, tensions have been rising. Factions and their leaders fight not only against each other but within themselves. Rifts are forming—political rifts amongst leaders and physical rifts as Deathwing tears our world apart. Rifts are everywhere in Azeroth.
Thus, officially as of today, we've rebranded our esteemed website to incorporate that very memorable and menacing word into our new site title. No longer are we Wowhead. Today we become "Rifthead"; a website where we strive to bring the community the latest upd

New Forum Feature: Credibility!
2011-03-31 в 18:00
Our team is always working behind the scenes to make the website easier to use and more enjoyable. I am proud to announce our latest feature:
, an indicator of how credible a forum post is! It will be shown next to each forum post; it consists of a rating in numeric form (usually between 1 and 9, but some exceptional cases do exist) and one of 3 possible color coded levels is also displayed. They say a picture is worth a thousand words:
The credibility of the post is entirely calculated by an automated algorithm without human intervention and will thus be available immediately after posting. Our tests have shown that it's remarkably accurate.
We plan to add new
for exceptionally credible posts and we will be looking at other ways to integrate this amazing new feature.
As always your feedback is very appreciated!
BFF Report - Mass Effect 2 - The Arrival DLC
2011-03-31 в 17:33
I don't know about you guys, but I am a huge fan of the Mass Effect IP.. I even own a book that I've read at least 37% of, and I never read books! However, this newest DLC, which coincidentally is also the last, kinda makes me go :|
Have any of you tried it? What are you thoughts on this compared to the previous DLC?
PTR Patch 4.1 Notes Updated (3/30)
2011-03-30 в 23:54
update the the PTR 4.1 Patch Notes today, including some moderate class changes (including some revisions to previous Arcane
ability changes), some Cataclysm dungeon changes and tons of other interesting things!
Notable changes include:
The guild achievements for earning exalted reputation with factions (
) have been fixed to now correctly count cumulative guild members with exalted factions. Previously, these achievements would only count exalted factions on one guild member.
has been redesigned slightly. Instead of a single charge absorption, it now places an absorption effect on the druid absorbing up to 35% of the druid's attack power (modified by mastery, if applicable) in damage and lasting 10 seconds. There are no longer any charges on the effect.
now also increases the healing done by the affected nature spell by 50%.
healing done has been increased by 35%. In addition, it has a new spell effect.
Настой стальной кожи
now grants 450 Stamina, up from 300. The Mixology bonus for alchemists remains at 120 stamina.
Bind to Battle.net Account Heirloom Items Coming in 4.1?
2011-03-30 в 19:11
We were taking a peek at some of the
awesome Heirloom items
we discovered in today's PTR patch and noticed a majorly interesting detail: heirlooms will now
Bind to Battle.net account
! It seems that this feature has been added not only to the newly added heirlooms but to all previously implemented heirloom items as well! We have absolutely no idea how transferring these items between characters on different servers and whatnot will work, but we'll definitely update with any details we're able to find! Maybe we'll see a detailed Blizzard post on this real soon™!
We'll (of course) have our
updated as soon as possible to support this change. :)
News Roundup: More Complaints About the 60-80 Leveling Flow...
2011-03-30 в 16:51
There have been some odds and ends this week and past that have deserved a news round-up, from a few hotfixes to some explanations of minor class changes that are slated to hit in patch 4.1. General news seems really slow lately, most likely because Blizzard has been busy ramping up for the Rise of the Zandalari release as well as preparing for the patch beyond that and its new raids.
Latest topics include:
Post-60 Leveling Flow
UA Dispel Penalty
Clarification Requested on WoG Nerf
HW: Sanctuary Needs Buffs

Intel's Short Film "When I Was An Elephant"
2011-03-30 в 16:50
Some of you guys might remember our
back in December covering
Intel's x25M Solid State Drives
, where we showed off some of the mad skills these drives pack and gave you guys some insight into how they can positively expect your World of Warcraft (and general computing) experiences. They've got some new SSDs coming out and we'll hopefully get more details real soon - we might even have another
for you guys to look forward to!
For now, our friends over at Intel have worked with the
team to release a short film titled
When I Was An Elephant
. It's a quirky and avant-garde piece, especially when considering it's advertising Intel's solid state drives, but it's definitely worth checking out. Let us know what you think!
Patch 4.1 Guild Challenges Detailed by Blizzard
2011-03-30 в 13:52
Blizzard has just recently released extensive details about the new Guild Challenges that are coming with Patch 4.1. Unfortunately, they aren't as robust as many players had hoped, but there's always opportunity for an update down the line! These challenges (as
we mentioned before
) task players with completing dungeons, raids and rated battlegrounds in guild groups for a large guild experience and monetary reward (at the appropriate guild level / reputation level).
Patch 4.1 will go live with three guild challenges:
Guild Raid Challenge:
Kill any Cataclysm raid boss while in a guild group. Requires at least 8 (in 10-player) or 20 (in 25-player) guild members in raid. Can be completed 1 time per week, rewards 3000000 guild experience.
Guild Dungeon Challenge:
Complete any Cataclysm regular or heroic dungeon while in a guild group. Requires at least 3 guild members in party. Can be completed 7 times per week, rewards 300000 guild experience.
Guild Rated Battleground Challenge:
Win a Rated Battleground while in a guild group. Requires at least 8 guild members in raid. Can be completed 3
Latest Cataclysm Hotfixes (March 25 - March 29)
2011-03-30 в 13:37
Just a tiny batch of new hotfixes, all of which were implemented between March 25 - March 29. Maybe Blizzard is finally running out of things to fix? Yeah, right. Don't worry, 4.1 will bring a whole new mess of changes and bugfixes all too soon! Nothing too incredibly interesting today, though I'm sure it was funny how players were using
prior to the fix, and I'll definitely welcome the lack of aggressive mobs near one of the more common
Dungeons & Raids
A bug has been fixed that could cause
during the Ascendant Council encounter (Heroic difficulty) to target an existing fire patch, instead of creating a new one.
The guild perk "
" no longer allows players to summon guild mates inside dungeons, raids, Battlegrounds, or Tol Barad when the battle is in progress. It will also not function while the player is on any transport.

Patch 4.1 - PTR Build 13812 - New Icons, Items, and Spell Changes
2011-03-30 в 12:35
A new PTR patch has just been released! Mostly it's a lot of tooltip changes as to be expected with any patch, however, there are some notable changes for several classes. The biggest changes are for the
class. It looks like bears are finally getting some much needed love--this is fitting with
the earlier blue posts
this week about improving Druid AoE tanking.
There are also new items and other stuff which we will be getting up shortly in a separate post.
