PTR Players: We Need Your Dataz!
That's right Wowhead users, we need your data!
For those of you who don't already know, Wowhead keeps its database listings up-to-date using a program called the
. This is a small program which automatically installs and updates an addon (which we call the Wowhead Looter) in your WoW folder, and takes notes on all the items, NPCs and such that you encounter in the game. Then, when you run the Client the next time, it uploads that data to our server—and we put it up on the website.
Those of you who are playing on the Public Test Realms, we need your data now more than ever! Please remember that the Wowhead Client
does not locate your PTR installation on its own
. You need to do that manually if you want to upload PTR data—and the faster we get the PTR data, the sooner we can provide you with PTR searches, PTR talent calcs, and so on!
If you need help setting the Wowhead Client up to work with your PTR installation, we've included some convenient instructions after the break.
For both PC and Mac users, the process is relatively simple.
So here's what the Wowhead Client looks like.
From here, you click on Tools > Options, and you get this screen:
From here, you need to use the 'Browse' function to find the PTR installation of your WoW exe, like so:
Then you just select the 'WoW.exe' in your PTR installation.
Mac OS X
So here's your Mac OS X Client:
From here, you click the 'Options' button, which takes you to this:
Same as before. Click 'Browse', and you get this screen:
From here you find the PTR version of your WoW installation, and select the "World of Warcraft" app.
See? Simple—and it helps us get the data to you that much faster!
