24/02/2009 a las 11:50
For your viewing pleasure, here are the
new icons that were added in PTR patch 22.214.171.12414.
All these icons are visible by browsing achievements, items, spells etc. on the site—but we thought you might appreciate having them all in one place for browsing. :)
3.1 Patch Notes!
24/02/2009 a las 02:31
on the PTRs!
We have a very special
page all prettied up with links, colors and tooltips, just for you! Check it out here:
This one has got some ESPECIALLY interesting changes. Not only do we have a brand new Gear Planner tool, we see the long-awaited implementation of the Dual Spec feature. There are also apparently some tweaks to the quest tracking system I'm interested to see—and mounts (or at least non-flying mounts) no longer vanish when they get wet!
Combine all of this with the class specific changes (Trap Launchers, anyone?) and I think we've got a hell of a patch coming up. Comments, questions, and thoughts are welcome!
PS: We are working round the clock to get all the new items and data up on the site for your perusal. Your new talent calculators should be ready shortly!
PTR Status (and Argent Tournament!)
23/02/2009 a las 19:48
Dresorull over on the official forums has given us some breaking news about the current status of the PTR.
Check out the info
Okay apparently I'm not as funny as I think I am, so I'm co-opting this post to turn it into an announcement of some information that's
interesting. Apparently the next patch, on top of the addition of our oh-so-heavily-anticipated raid content, is
featuring a brand

Player vs. Street
21/02/2009 a las 04:55
I never got particularly into fighting games. Until fairly recently, I could never pull off any of the special moves with any amount of regularity, let alone ridiculously complicated combos, and without being able to do the move you want to do, suddenly you're not competing against the person you're sitting next to or against a computer, you're competing against your own hand eye coordination. I'm not down on personal tests of hand eye coordination, but I generally dislike situations in which I'm faced with a challenge that I need to surpass to even be able to compete on the same level as someone else.
That's why I'm so excited about Street Fighter 4. According to my brief experiences playing it (it only was released for consoles on the 17th), and what I've read about it, it seems like they're trying to move away from complicated special moves and combos, and towards predicting what the opponent is going to do, and reacting to it before they can do it.
I guess what I'm really trying to say here is that I don't particularly like PvP.
That Darn Furbolg
20/02/2009 a las 14:04
Some 10,000 years ago
, revered mage of the
and a member of The Six who oversee
, negotiated an alliance between earthen, tauren, night elves, and a mysterious bear-man race who supposedly originated in
. The alliance proved successful against the Burning Legion for the time being. Over the years these bear-men, given the term furbolg, befriended the night elves and tauren. The night elves found nurturing allies in the furbolg as they were invaluable for their knowledge of the moonlit forests. However, the Burning Legion would not let this truce go unhindered for long.
Our blog entry today deals with the furbolg. I bet a lot of you have seen them in-game, whether you recognized them or not. Through time, I have learned to appreciate some of the finer points of lore and I think these creatures are simply fascinating. Some of you may be curious about what a furbolg is and why exactly I am obsessed with them. Well, who cares!

Official Blizzard Update: BlizzCon, Ulduar, and more
18/02/2009 a las 21:40
Once again, our friends at Blizzard have sent us a little note asking us to mention a few of their big announcements this week...and boy, there have been some big ones.
We have three different big announcements this week:
BlizzCon 2009 has been announced, and tickets will be available soon!
The 2009 World of Warcraft Arena Tournament is now open for registration!
The Ulduar sneak peek we linked
is now up on the US site!
Check after the break for the official Blizzard announcements. :)

No matter whether you're Blizzard's number one fanboi, or you think they're the worst bunch of screwups you've ever paid $15 a month to—one thing can always be said for Blizzard: They know how to keep a secret. I fully intend to come up with a whole blog on this subject later.
So naturally, when Blizzard releases some info, all of us jump at the chance to go over it with a fine tooth comb. Let's get cracking, shall we? :D
Creating Good Forum Topic Titles
17/02/2009 a las 00:20
We have a large community here at Wowhead and ever since the introduction of our forums there has been a large amount of threads which all share one thing in common: "Help me, please!" Many users looking for help at other sites are often left feeling lost, but thanks to our great community of users (and obviously our staff), we like to think most of you actually do receive the help you need—whether it's in the form of a direct answer or simply being pointed in the right direction. In this entry, my goal is to help lead users away from vague "Help me!" titles and towards more specific requests, so they can get the help they're looking for.

It's been a couple of weeks since I've had the time to make a comic, but here's a nice simple one.
Flirt with Disaster
I enjoyed making this one, I do love those dresses!
I had a moment of stupidity with this achievement, I just couldn't get it to work!... Then of course I realised I had no perfume on my toon. So yay, wasted petals. SIGH. Oh well!
Either way, I hope you all enjoyed this year's Valentine's event. I didn't have the time to get many of the fun achievements done, I'll certainly be envious of those of you with the
Til next week. xx
And of course, here is the
Dear Wowhead... (Episode 7)
14/02/2009 a las 01:09
Welcome back, dear readers! My sincere thanks for the flood of letters I received this week. I'm looking forward to answering as many as I can!
My father lost his job and we moved to Kharanos in Dun Morogh where he found a job as an engineer. Normally this is a good thing, but I'm a human and all the Dwarves and Gnomes live there. I also have to go to a previously all dwarf and gnome private school so I can take classes in engineering.
I always get picked on in class, the gnomes keep calling me tall and the dwarves always call me sober. The lunches there are disgusting, they serve Darkmoon Special Reserve Surprise Monday - Thursday, and we have Mechanical Squirrel Soup Fridays. I just can't fit in at this school. I need your help!!!!

Jeff Kaplan Now Working On Mystery MMO
12/02/2009 a las 13:37
So it looks like Game Director Jeff "Tigole" Kaplan has switched projects—he's now working on Blizzard's unannounced, upcoming "next-gen MMO". Check out the announcement:
I wanted to take a moment to let the community know that I’ve switched roles here at Blizzard to work on our upcoming, unannounced MMO. World of Warcraft has been such a central part of my life these past six and a half years, and it’s success would not have been possible without the tremendous community around it, so I wanted to say thank you to all our players who’ve shared this amazing experience with us so far. Also, while I have served as the spokesperson and Game Director for World of Warcraft on Wrath of the Lich King, by no means would WoW be where it is today without the dedicated team that we have in place. The WoW development team is comprised of some of the most talented and experienced game developers in the world, and it was an absolute honor to serve amongst them, and they will continue to make WoW better than ever. I still plan to be very involved with the future course of World of Warcraft, but will leave the day to day o
