Wowhead Client, Cataclysm Beta and You
As usual, when there's a beta up, we need your data! But there's been a little bit of confusion as to how to make the Wowhead Client work with the beta installation of Cataclysm.
So I've come to answer the question on everyone's mind,
how do I upload data for the beta?
Well, that's an easy one! First you need to make sure you have the Wowhead Client installed, which you can get
. Unzip the files and copy the Wowhead_client.exe to somewhere you can easily remember—I personally keep mine inside the World of Warcraft folder for my live install. When you open the Wowhead Client for the first time it will try to auto detect your World of Warcraft installations. Typically this will be done automatically, but if for some reason it does not detect your game files properly, all you will need to do is click on Tools -> Options and Browse for Live, PTR and Beta installations. Once you've done all this, all you have to do is click OK and upload your data!
Remember at this time
Addons are disabled
in the Cataclysm beta test, so the only data we will be receiving is from your cache files.
These cache files still contain useful information
, which helps us populate the database—things like items, quests, objects and NPCs. The only things it doesn't contain are location and drop data for all those items, which requires the Wowhead Looter addon. As soon as addons are enabled on the beta realms we will automatically be able to collect this information, as long as you have the addon enabled.
So run those addons! The more data we get, the better our (your!) database is!
