Official WoW website housecleaning coming our way

Reputation Header
Friday afternoon Community Manager Zarhym took to the official WoW forums to let us all know that Blizzard will be removing some of the lesser-used features they track on the official website. The reasoning behind the decision is that these particular features are laborious to maintain, their pages are not well-trafficked, and you can either look up the same information in-game, or there exist fansites that track the same things just as well as the official site. The following pages have been put on the chopping block:
  • Pets & Mounts Gallery
  • Factions
  • Professions
  • Guild Perks and Rewards sections
  • Character Pets & Mounts
  • Character Hunter Pets
  • Character Professions
  • Character Reputation
The full blue post is after the break.

Official WoW forums going read-only on Wednesday, new community site and forums ready

Last month, Blizzard announced that it would be launching a new World of Warcraft community site, with new and improved forums. At the time, Blizzard said that the existing official forums would be phased out after testing of the community site was complete. The community site went live earlier this month.

Now, a wave of identical blue posts has hit every section of the WoW forums with the following message:

Bashiok -- Forums Going Read-Only
This Wednesday, November 17 these forums will be put into a read-only state. At that time we'll be inviting all posters to fully migrate to the new World of Warcraft community site and forums.

These forums will remain read-only until the end of the month, after which they and all of their posts will be removed ... forever! If you have any posts, information, stickies, etc. that you'd like to keep you'll want to have finished saving it before then.

We've all enjoyed the past few years on these forums, and look forward to creating many more with you on the new community site. See you there!

So that's it! We won't be able to post in the official forums anymore after Wednesday, Nov. 17, and we have until the end of November to save anything on the official forums we want to keep or remember!

[UPDATED] Official WoW site now full Wrath

Tipster Brad pointed out to us that the official World of Warcraft site is now full Wrath of the Lich King. All traces of the Burning Crusade have now been put in the freezer except for the forums, although we should expect to see changes there relatively soon. The old page showed images of Draenei and Blood Elves, with the World of Warcraft logo merely half-frozen, with the rest of the logo in Outland-ish green. Given that the launch of the latest expansion is less than 36 72 (oops!) hours away, Blizzard seems to have gone full throttle with the transition.

Except for the forums' Burning Crusade logo and greenish background, there are no more traces of the Burning Crusade's design on the official site. [UPDATE: The forums have changed to a Wrath of the Lich King design, as well.] Excitement is ramping up for Wrath, and we're caught up in it with a massive prize giveaway. We even redesigned the site just a few days earlier than Blizzard's minor cosmetic change. Now that the official site has gone full Wrath of the Lich King, we just might feel Arthas' influence a little more in-game. Note: if you aren't getting the Wrath page, you should try holding down the Shift key when refreshing the page. This should force the browser to get new data from the website (instead of the cache).

Blizzard updates armor sets page with Season 4

The World of Warcraft official armor sets page has been updated to feature the Season 4 or Brutal Gladiator pieces. Just as with past sets, you'll be able to review the armor pieces on each class and their respective races as well as view the stats for each item. Season 4 started on June 24, after a long 30 week wait since Season 3 began, finally opening the floodgates for Sunwell Plateau-level PvP gear. Check out WoW Insider's extensive Brutal Gladiator gear guide and comprehensive gallery for more detailed information on Season 4 gear.
