Site Updates to Item Data, Tooltips, and More; Significant Weekend Tweets
We've got another round of site updates to share with you today! We've added information about legacy achievements and exclusive glyphs to the database, as well as new item bonus information based on Blizzard's sweeping data changes for 6.0.
To see other recent developments on Wowhead, check out our
Item Data Changes in Warlords
Items in Warlords of Draenor are receiving a lot of internal changes that we have to adapt to here at Wowhead. Our goal is to have our users think that nothing has changed when using our database and tools, but we're quite busy behind-the-scenes.
Instead of each version of an item being linked to a unique item ID, all versions are consolidated into one item ID in Warlords of Draenor. An item can now have a number of bonuses applied--ranging from a Raid Difficulty to a gem socket. So in 6.0, there will be one item ID associated with all versions of a Siege of Orgrimmar item, like
Warlords of Draenor and 6.0 items now display item bonuses on their Wowhead pages. Here's some examples of items with bonuses:
6.0 Siege of Orgrimmar items
now have raid difficulty and Warforged bonuses. All of our comments and screenshots will be consolidated and moved over to these new pages in 6.0 to reduce database clutter.
Warlords of Draenor quest items
now display uncommon, rare, and epic versions. When completing a Draenor quest, the reward has a low chance to be rare or epic.
Warlords of Draenor dungeon items
now display a Heroic option as well as bonuses that modify the required level and item level. We're not sure what purpose these later options serve--perhaps different versions drop in various instances?
When you select a bonus, the item's URL is modified so you can link that exact version of an item elsewhere, instead of the base version that could have quite different stats. For example, when you select "Mythic Warforged" on
, the URL is changed to
Tooltips for all bonuses will be coming soon, as well as refinements to our tools that require specific versions of an item.

Exclusive Glyph Information In Tooltips
On Wowhead, item tooltips for glyphs now show what other glyphs are exclusive and cannot be used at the same time. For example,
shows that you cannot also use
at the same time.
Exclusive is a new glyph category in Warlords of Draenor, which prevents players from selecting multiple glyphs that buff the same ability in meaningful ways.
Previously, we added exclusive glyph behavior to our
Warlords of Draenor Talent Calculator
--if you add an exclusive glyph, you can't add the rest.
New Legacy Achievement Category
legacy achievement category
has been added, which covers many Feats of Strength related to old content patches like MoP Challenge Modes, classic WoW PvP titles, and
You can find a list of Legacy Achievements by going to Database > Achievements > Character Achievements > Legacy in the dropdown menus.
We know it's hard to keep up with tweet traffic, even when it's quieter over holiday weekends, so we've put together a post sorting all the tweets since our last update into easy-to-read tabs. And of course there's the
