Site Updates: New Profiler Features, Custom Stat Weights and Reforging!
The Wowhead team is always working behind the scenes on ways to make our site an even better resource for our users. This week has been a particularly productive one. We've made several big changes here--all thanks to our community's constant feedback! We get a lot of requests from you guys and we're always happy to listen. Over these past few months,
has been brought up a lot. In particular, you've brought up adding a way to track raid progression.
Well, now you can. We're happy to announce that we recently added a raid progression tracker to Profiler. In addition to all the other awesome things it can already do, it can now tell you what dungeons are optimal for your level and gear. In just one glance, Profiler can tell you what ones you have completed and your current raid progression as well.
Of course, Profiler's raid utilities aren't the only thing we've enhanced. We also improved on Wowhead's ability to help you choose gear and see how your stats change with every choice you make. We've done this primarily through two other recent updates: the ability to reforge items and the ability to create cust
Introducing the Meebo Bar! We Want Your Feedback! (Removed)
Thanks for your feedback! After considering all feedback and opinions shared within this thread and via email,
we have decided to
the meebo bar permanently
. So long, we hardly knew ye! Toldja we were listening! Thanks again for all the constructive feedback! :)
We've just implemented a new social media toolbar that you will start seeing at the bottom of Wowhead pages!
toolbar will allow for us to serve non-intrusive and non-annoying high quality ads while also providing popular site content to our users. These ads will not feature automatic pop-ups, music or sound in any way!
We want users to remember that ultimately, this is an advertisement. And while we don't like them any more than you guys do, the truth is that we need advertising to survive. This is why we are exploring options to provide advertising in new and different ways than users are used to, so that we can provide the advertising the site needs while also providing services and features that our users can take advantage of. Don't forget, we're taking your feedback here extremely seriously, but do remember that ultimately we're still going to have

Patch 4.1 - PTR Build 13726 - Spell Changes
A new PTR patch has just been released, and with it came a few minor class changes and (mostly) a bunch of tooltip and typo fixes. Many of these class changes were previously announced with last week's
PTR patch notes update
The only particularly notable change in this latest set of spell diffs:
now have a 40 yard range, up from 35 yards.
- If the tooltip change is to be believed, it appears that the
buff duration has been removed. This means that
states will no longer expire after 1 minute and instead last indefinitely until cancelled or changed.

! I'm sure many of you remember the
heated discussion regarding guild reputation
on the official forums a while back, where many players suggested adding guild quests as a method of earning reputation and experience. Looks like Blizzard agreed! We don't have any details yet on these quests or what they'll entail or reward, but you can be sure that as soon as the information is available we'll bring it to you!
Warriors and clothies will be happy to learn that ZA/ZG will also feature appropriately itemized pre-raid ranged slot weapons, something that many players were extremely disappointed over the Justice Points vendor lacking. In addition, as a little something for archaeologists - players will appropriately leveled archaeology will be able to unlock the new Edge of Madness bosses in Zul'Gurub! Players may recall that in Classic Zul'Gurub, this event required an alchemist to farm annoying materials (
