13/03/2012 a las 12:43
Blizzard is starting a new screenshot of the day feature for Mists of Pandaria. This expansion is looking more gorgeous by the moment.
In other news, our friends at WoW Interface are giving away 20 Diablo III beta keys so be sure to go visit them if you want to check out Sanctuary!
Community and World of Warcraft
This isn't the first nor the last time we will see a discussion about community and the sense of community, I'm sure, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's important though that we keep these discussions constructive however.I'm going to channel some Ghostcrawler for you this morning and see if we can open up the discussion a bit.

Keeping a sense of community while still meeting the needs of the community as a whole is a huge challenge for us. We fundamentally believe that having a sense of community is an important thing for the long-term health of the game. However, we don\u2019t think the way to foster that community is to force players to s
Teaser for Female Pandaren Released
12/03/2012 a las 03:06
Blizzard has been turning up the hype machine for Mists of Pandaria--they just shared a silhouette of a female Pandaren on their Facebook page!
The full reveal of this classy lady will happen on March 19th, when the NDA for this week's press event lifts. Of course, Wowhead staff will be at the event and we'll have a full preview up then so be sure to get ready!
Frostbitten: Guide to All Rares, Part 2
10/03/2012 a las 11:03
We covered a number of rare spawns in Beyond Bloody Rare: A Guide to Rares last year, but we found even more fun ones we wanted to share with you!
While some rares drop a random assortment of greens, a fair amount have specific loot associated with them--some for transmog, some just for status or bank alts. Rares have a ton of personality with their unique models and names, usually after pop-culture references, so it's fun when their loot has some humor as well. We scanned all the rares in the database to see which ones had anything notable!
In this guide, we've provided mouseover images of the rares, maps, and links to any unique loot drops. In the previous guide, we covered: rares for achievements, hunter tames, notably-named ones from classic instances and zones, and Cataclysm rares.
A note on droprates: many of these mobs had their levels and loot tables adjusted in Cataclysm. Drops that were nearly guaranteed from mobs are now extremely rare. If the loot's been rescaled for Cataclysm though to match a mob's new level, chances are it still exists in game--as several users have reported. If an item's level doesn't match a mob's l
Mists of Pandaria Buff and Debuff Design
08/03/2012 a las 20:06
We recently released an update to the Mists of Pandaria talent tree. Since the expansion is still in development, these updates represent a snapshot of where we are at any given moment and not a final design where we step back and say \u201cLadies and gentlemen, we have achieved perfection. Let us not change a thing.\u201d If you\u2019ve been playing the game for a while, you\u2019ve probably realized by now that we never think we\u2019ll hit perfection, and we probably never will.
One design that we haven\u2019t focused on much yet is the plan for various group buffs and debuffs. Some specs have their buffs in place and some do not. Rather than trying to describe each omission, we thought we\u2019d just dump the whole design on you here. As with the rest of the expansion\u2019s systems, we\u2019re not even in beta yet, so there\u2019s plenty of time for things to change.
First, some underlying design goals, so you might understand where we\u2019re coming from. Our main goals for group buffs are:
Make you feel more powerful when grouped with other players.
Cataclysm Post Mortem -- Greg “Ghostcrawler” Street
07/03/2012 a las 11:16
As part of our World of Warcraft: Cataclysm post mortem series, we sat down with World of Warcraft Lead Systems Designer Greg \u201cGhostcrawler\u201d Street to talk about his thoughts on World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.
Q. What were your main goals going into Cataclysm?
A: Westfall was a seven-year-old zone with seven-year-old trees and seven-year-old quests. It naturally felt old. It felt tired for players going back to level up an alt, and it wasn\u2019t inspiring for new players coming to the game. We just felt like it was time to give all of those old 1-60 zones some attention again. Beyond that though, we wanted to update the classes at low level as well. The spell flow, by which we mean the level you get certain spells, just hadn\u2019t aged well. You would get some very group-focused buffs at low level and some powerful leveling tools at high level, which would have made more sense reversed. There were some specs that just weren\u2019t functional at low level before because they lacke
Scroll of Resurrection Revamped: Free Level 80 and New Mounts
06/03/2012 a las 18:24
When those spectral mounts made the rounds a couple of months ago, we all wondered when they'd show up. It turns out they're for Scroll of Resurrection's revamp!
Players who revive another person's previously inactive account will receive a spectral mount based on their faction. Meanwhile, the player who accepts a Scroll will get an even sweeter deal:
A single character boosted to 80
A free character move and faction change
Seven days of free game time
And last, but not least, a free upgrade to Cataclysm
This is pretty big, and I imagine many of you have accounts of your own you'll want to resurrect--good thing you can! As long as an account has been inactive since before March 4th, 2012 you're eligible to be brought back into Azeroth for these goodies.
We have our own Scroll of Resurrection request thread here at Wowhead.
Update: This system is now live.
The Scroll of Resurrection is currently on cooldown, but will be resurrected soon. Once it\u2019s ava
News Round Up: Stat Changes and Scroll of Resurrection
06/03/2012 a las 16:56
With the recent Post Mortem on Dungeons and Raids, as well as the blog on stat changes, there's been a lot of discussion on all the changes--the blue responses today cover a lot of controversial decisions on these topics.
But on to the really exciting news: it looks like there's a new Scroll of Resurrection program! It was accessible on live servers earlier today (via your Real ID list), but looks to be down for maintenance now. It's a pretty sweet deal to draw your friends back in--the recruited friend gets a free faction change, server transfer, and copy of Cataclysm, as well as a character instantly boosted to 80. This could explain all those ilvl 232 armor pieces and weapons we datamined back in 4.3--like the Zealous Armor--your fresh 80 will need some new gear.
Discuss the new Scroll of Resurrection over here as well as see the huge FAQ!
Cataclysm Post Mortem -- Dungeons and Raids with Scott “Daelo” Mercer
05/03/2012 a las 21:25
Soon we fly together again...
We received the following pics from Blizzard this morning, with this cryptic message: "Soon we fly together again..."
Any idea what it could mean? We're curious to know more about these mounts!
Cataclysm Post Mortem: Dungeons and Raids
As a part of our post mortem series on Cataclysm, we sat down with World of Warcraft Lead Encounter Designer Scott \u201cDaelo\u201d Mercer to hear his thoughts on Cataclysm dungeons and raids.
Q. What were your main goals going into Cataclysm?
We really wanted to make sure we were creating new challenges, strong mechanics, and cool creatures while staying true to the expansion and the themes we wanted to carry out. The three raid dungeons came out well and we had a lot of fun bringing the story of Nefarian and the Twilight\u2019s Hammer to life. We were also able to add some dynamic mechanics in Throne of the Four Winds, which featured players moving across multiple platforms.
Transmogrification Guides, Part 7: Quest Armor (Updated for 5.4)
03/03/2012 a las 09:08
Our Transmog database contains quest sets from each expansion. Some of these items are only from one quest in the game--better to discover a set you like now, instead of after you've vendored that unique quest reward!
This guide covers all of the quest transmog sets in the game. They're organized by expansion and armor type with information on how to acquire them and basic colors. Plus, you can mouseover each set to see what it looks like!

New Ghostcrawler Blog: Mists of Pandaria Stat Changes
01/03/2012 a las 20:06
Our recent talent calculator changes led to some players asking questions about how character and item stats were changing, because some spell and talent tooltips suggest that changes are coming. We compiled this list to attempt to explain more of what\u2019s coming in Mists of Pandaria. First of all, please note that we actually aren\u2019t making many stat changes compared to the ones we made in Cataclysm (\u201carmor penetration -- gone!\u201d). Second, the stuff below can get a little technical. If you\u2019re not into the subtle nuance of gear itemization, then don\u2019t worry about it -- you don\u2019t need to be to enjoy the expansion -- but we know there are plenty of you who enjoy some nuts and bolts talk, so here we go.
\tSpell resistance is gone. There are no buffs that improve it and there shouldn\u2019t be much, if any, spell resist gear left. We always thought the system was hard to understand and we weren\u2019t getting much gameplay out of it. Now taking a step back, we can imagine how to develop a game where you\u2019d want various forms of resist gear for certain situations and opponents. Resist gear could potentially be interesting, b
Blizzard Lays Off 600 Employees
29/02/2012 a las 12:05
Blizzard is letting go approximately six hundred employees globally with over 90% of them from non-development teams (source). According to Blizzard, the development cycle will not be impacted.
As a personal aside, to everyone let go, the Wowhead staff is thinking of you and we hope you land on your feet. Layoffs are horrible things to experience.
We announced today that we\u2019re in the process of cutting a number of active positions, mostly non-development, throughout the company. I'm sure this announcement has sparked some questions from all of you, so I want take this opportunity to address those as best I can. Over the past several years, the company has grown rapidly and evolved to better serve you and the rest of our global community. Thanks to all of your support, we continue to serve by far the biggest subscription-based MMO community, as well as the most passionate eSports and online gaming communities, in the world.
In order to keep making epic game content while serving players effectively, we have to be sm
Cataclysm Post Mortem -- Quest Design with Dave Kosak
28/02/2012 a las 12:34
To kick-off our World of Warcraft: Cataclysm post mortem series, we sat down with World of Warcraft Lead Quest Designer Dave \u201cFargo\u201d Kosak to discuss his thoughts on questing in Cataclysm.
Q: What were your main goals going into Cataclysm?
Certainly from a quest design standpoint our primary goal with Cataclysm was to remake the old world, specifically the 1-60 questing experience. World of Warcraft was released in 2004, and we've learned so much in the years since about what constitutes good MMO gameplay. We wanted to make sure that the game was relevant to new players coming in, and walking up and down the length of the Barrens on foot over and over just didn\u2019t do it for us anymore.
Remaking the entire old world -- 46 zones! -- was ambitious. Actually, it was ludicrous. It was like re-releasing a whole game in the course of an expansion cycle. Then we added a couple new races and their starting zones on top of that. I\u2019m not sure how we convinced ourselves we could make it happen, but somehow we pulled it together.
Q: Are you happy with how the old world re-vamp turned out?
I am. Leveling up a new character to 60 nowadays is a gr
