Wowhead: About Us Page Update
06.06.2009 в 22:03
So those of you who have been paying attention to detail will notice—our team is expanding, and we've finally made all of the appropriate updates to the
We've added some new full-time programmers to the team:

hunter pet calculator
system, as well as the upcoming
. It's been a huge oversight on our part that she hasn't been featured on the About Us page long before now.
We've also very recently added

very first contest

Blizzard Introduces Ulduar Bosstiary
06.06.2009 в 19:00
Usually I try not to post blogs that fall under the "News" category, because I feel they are more of admins' duty than mine. So unless I am specifically asked to post something, I read the news and leave somebody else to post them. As simple as that.
This time however, I could not just stand aside and watch. I had to post this, not only because it is related to Lore (which I love with all of my heart), but is also related to Ulduar, which I have grown to love as my own child. Blizzard have finally released a modified version of a bestiary - a
! It has a tiny bit of information about every Ulduar boss (and I expect to see more bosses coming soon), it has nice screenshots, and is all nice and beautiful. But don't let me waste any more of your time, see Blizzard's announcement for yourself!
You, Summer Vacation, and WoW
04.06.2009 в 22:50
Hey, guys. I've been so busy since last week studying for finals that I haven't had any time to post blogging entries. Now that school is almost over, I'll have a little more time to post entries and keep you excited users busy!
Anyway, moving on...
I've been playing World of Warcraft for over three years. That's three summer vacations I've been through since I started playing. Considering I have two parents who work full time, I usually spend about three days a week home alone. With very little things to do while my parents are at work, what I usually end up doing is playing World of Warcraft.

New Druid Forms! (Night Elf Cat)
04.06.2009 в 13:57
The final installment has arrived! Ladies and gentlemen, behold the new
Night Elf Cat
These are pretty subtle, actually. They really do look like the original models—only, you know, better in every way.
As usual you can click on the "Original" button to see the full size version. Looks like these are the last ones we get—if there are changes to Tree of Life or Moonkin forms, they're not being included in the preview.
Blizzard's announcement follows after the break:
The Next Expansion
03.06.2009 в 13:19
Blizzard once said that they would like to release a new expansion every year or so and this has gotten people thinking, "After Arthas, what comes next?" Don't get me wrong, I personally feel no need to rush the release of the next expansion—I mean, we still haven't defeated Arthas. But after Arthas, what will our 1337 characters all pimped out in Frozen Throne purples do next?
New Druid Forms! (Tauren Cat)
02.06.2009 в 13:00
To keep you amused while your server is down, Blizzard has posted the new
These are my favorites yet. They genuinely look like Taurens in cat form, not just like animals with beads and facepaint.

Wowhead: Glyphs and Spells, Together at Last!
01.06.2009 в 00:09
If you've ever wondered if there was a glyph that affected your
spell and what it did, you've probably been scouring
a filtered list of mage glyphs
in an effort to answer that question. We here at Wowhead were not satisfied with that as a solution, so we've made the task easier!
Pages for spells that can be modified by glyphs (such as
) will now have a tab called "Modified By" which lists all of the glyphs that can alter the spell. Conversely, glyph items (such as
Символ уменьшения питомца
) will now have a tab called "Modifies" which lists all ranks of the spell that it alters, allowing you to quickly review the spell and its normal effects.
Now, get out there and start inscribing!

Making Those Tough Decisions In-Game
29.05.2009 в 17:00
Recently a user, who insisted on anonymity, approached me on IRC and asked me for in-game advice. Not knowing what he was going to ask, I blindly agreed and he explained the situation to me. Basically, he was having a hard time contemplating as to whether he should purchase an heirloom bow to benefit his level 40 hunter or if he should save his valor badges to upgrade his level 80 Death Knight's gear. Bear in mind that his level 40 hunter was his first character ever and that he plans on leveling him up to 80 at some point, and his Death Knight is his main character that's well-geared.
Much to my surprise, I was able to give him what he called the "best piece of advice someone could ever give" in spite of the fact that I have very little experience with WoTLK content.
Firefox Persona for Wowhead
28.05.2009 в 12:26
Unlike most of my blogs, this one is going to be very short, for all I bring after almost a week of no Internet, is just news about something little I created.
If you use Firefox, you might have noticed that recently a new feature was released -

Well, now that I have familiarized you with this feature, here is the news - I have made a little (and very simple!) Persona for Wowhead.
