Taking a Break Can Ease Challenges
Overcoming challengesHave any of you taken a MMO vacation recently? I know I have. Sometimes you need some time away from things to clear your head. Maybe catch up on a few chores or errands you put off recently. I remember last playing World of Warcraft a few months ago. I was working on an achievement which was timed. I thought it was really fun, but it was kind of hard at the time, too.\r
Whether I'm trying to pull off a huge combo in a skateboarding game or trying to solve a riddle in a role-playing game I feel as though my work would be complete if only I could achieve that one special goal. Of course, it seldom happens that way for me.
Wowhead: Talent Calculator Updates!
That'll teach us for thinking no one used this. The minute we changed the "Summary" link on the talent calculator to display only the talent titles, I was deluged in email asking us to change it back. Well, we hear you. The full-text printable Summary is back, and it missed you!\r
We've also made a few tweaks and updates to the talent calculator as well, so for those of you who have been using it regularly will notice a few tweaks\u2014most notably, the links on the right side (Reset, Lock\/Unlock, Import, Summary, and Restore) now all work for Glyphs as well as for talents.\r
Poke around, give it a try, and don't say we never gave you anything. :)
Wowhead Weekly Review (May 10 - May 16)
With apologies to Pink Kryptonite.Welcome to our tenth Wowhead Weekly Review and our third to be posted as a blog! See the most recent Weekly Reviews here.\r
Since the 10th is a small milestone for us, we shall sport you a little more than usual!\r
Read on! \r

Pretty Picture Filler Week!
As you may have noticed, I've been slacking with the comics. There are a couple reasons behind this, but its mainly due to me being eye-bleedingly busy. I've been using the days I allocate each week for Wowhead, to work on Blizzcon badge images for the wonderful Wowhead Staff. \r
Malgayne. Miyari. Skosiris.\r
I will be drawing these for other staff members in the near future, and for those that want to commission me for similar badge-art as above, they will be available soon. I'll add some information about it in a future post. \r
The other reason for a decrease in comic numbers, is a lack of scripts. I no longer have a full-time writer to make them for me, and I'm having terrible writer's block!\r
So if any of you out there have any ideas for short, simple, and funny WoW-related comic script, please feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Who knows...it might get used!
\/sigh...So here I am, writing a blog post when I should be studying for a chemistry and physics final for next week.\r
I've got a question for you all who go to school, or even those who go to work (wait, those things don't happen if you play WoW!): How do you balance WoW (or another video game of your choice) with the obligations you have in real life?
Wowhead: A Few Little Updates
We continue to tinker away in the background, and we've made a few small updates today that we wanted to make sure you knew about!\r
We've added the
(as well as the long overdue
) to the list of items on the "Purchaseable With" filter! Try it out here: Purchaseable with Champion's Seal and Purchaseable with Wintergrasp Mark of Honor\r
We've also added an Obtained via Milling filter to the list!\r
Not to mention of course, we're constantly updating the list of items found in Ulduar with fresh new data!\r
For all those of you in the process of clearing Ulduar right now, especially the hard modes: Please be sure to run, and upload, from the Wowhead Client! It's the only way we get these pages updated! :D
Not Enough Hotkeys? The Secret Art of Palm-Pressing
Standard keyboard with extended CTRL buttonsWishing you had a way to get more keys in-game? I had a tough time managing key binds over the years. Eventually I developed a method I like to call palm-pressing. Through this technique, I am able to multiply the amount of buttons my fingers push. Interested?\r
Wowhead: More Static to You
Shocking!The development team here at Wowhead has made some changes to the way we serve up static content on our servers. We have been moving files that do not change often (such as images) to a new server to help improve the performance of the site. Today, we completed that move. \r
For those of you who are using the Powered by Wowhead tooltips or the Spread Wowhead logos or search boxes, you should update your pages to take advantage of this performance gain.\r
Religion in WoW
The Stormwind Cathedral\u2014seat of power for the Church of the Holy LightSome of you may have wondered, what are the different religions in the world of Azeroth? Well, in this blog I will discuss a few of those religions. There are seven major religions with a few more minor ones. The seven major religions are\r
Church of the Holy Light\r
Worship of Elune\r
Mystery of the Makers\r
Followers of the Old Gods\r
Cult of Forgotten Shadow\r
...with the most prominent of these religions (probably) being the Church of the Holy Light.\r
Follow us after the break for a little lore-lesson!
Costume Contest for Blizzard EU!
Blizzard!So being US-based, we wind up running a lot of contests that are US-only, and I know our non US-based community feels a little left out sometimes, so I figured I'd let you guys know about an opportunity to turn the tables on us. :)\r
Blizzard EU is having a Costume Contest! Any of you who are interested in going to Blizzcon, and (like many of us) are doubtful of your ability to secure tickets when they go on sale this weekend, consider this contest a second chance!\r
The full details are on the contest page here:\r
Naxxramas in Spanish
It has been long due, but our Spanish speaking friends can finally rejoice! Wowhead has updated all of Naxxramas' boss articles, and you can now browse your favorite website in your favorite language (assuming your favorite language is Spanish).\r
Check them out over at our Spanish Naxxramas page!\r
Maintenance Complainers: Justified?
ME SMASH!Every single Tuesday on North American servers and every single Wednesday on EU servers, Blizzard takes down their servers for maintenance. Sometimes it's for full maintenance, and other times it's for rolling restarts. Since this has been the normal routine for over four years now, one thing really confuses me. It's not the fact that Blizzard even does maintenance in the first place; rather, what confuses me is the fact that players still complain about it. It makes me wonder why they complain about in the first place, and if they've not found a way to cope with the 6-8 hour inconvenience. \r
Let's venture into the realm of possibilities!
