Wowhead: Justice Points Filters Now Available
The developers here at Wowhead have been slaving away in an effort to make our main site compatible with 4.0.1. While they were at it, they added a new feature that you will all enjoy:
costs are now displayed on items!
There is even a new
option so you can check out all the costs for items. This new feature is also extended to the new Honor Points, and even Conquest and Valor points once we are Cataclysm-bound.
You may notice we don't have costs for everything that should have cost. Well, fear not! If you are running the
and see anything that is missing we should have the information in the very near future.

Cataclysm Bonus Model Update - New Tree of Life Form!
We're not going to sleep yet! We've got what appears to be a new model for the druid's
Inkarnation: Baum des Lebens
form, possibly still a work-in-progress! Since it is no longer a permanent form and is instead a temporary shapeshift, Blizzard has stated that they want to make it more special and exotic. This is definitely a step in...
direction. As a resto druid going on my fifth year, I personally consider this quite a welcome step up from the scraggly ol' treant of the days past. I can only hope one day that Blizzard allows us to choose our shapeshift form skins independently. And hey - maybe we'll get that
update after all!
Get your "HULK SMASH!" shapeshift macros ready, boys and girls. Don't forget to click on a model to check it out in our 3D model viewer!
The Flash versions of these models are now available!

I know we all can't wait to make fun of the latest Paladin frocks, right? I've included all of the current Tier 11 armor sets in this post, and you can be sure that they'll be added to our [u

The latest patch brings a bunch of radical changes to the

The new Armory site isn't up yet, but when it goes up we're going to put together a massive Profiler update, not just to the way statistics are calculated but also to the way that quests, recipes, mounts and such are tracked.
Unfortunately, this means that
the Completion Tracker is temporarily under maintenance.

4.0.1: Glyphs, Streaming and Class Changes!
Blizzard has gone on an announcement spree! Hopefully they are trying to hint 4.0.1 is tomorrow...
The first announcement concerns the changes to glyphs in 4.0.1. As many of you all know, the Glyph system is getting a complete overhaul. Each player will have 3 different kinds of glyphs:
which increase which give a direct increase to abilities (such as
Mal des Orcas
which augment spells or give them additional utility (like
which provide additional convenience or cosmetic changes (like
Glyphe 'Leuchtender Vorreiter'
The next announcement is about the new Streaming Launcher. You'll notice that in the new launcher you will see a bar which changes colours. While the bar is red the game is downloading core game files and you won't be able to play just yet. Yellow means you can play but there will be a lot of downloading while playing, and game play will not be fast. Green means good to go and you should be able to play with very little download

WoW Reaches 12 Million Subscribers
You know, just when you think WoW has FINALLY plateaued, they hit another milestone.
I caught an article on CNET this morning referencing a
from Activision-Blizzard, announcing that they have reached a monumental
12 million subscribers
. That's active subscribers, too—the press release defines subscribers as "...individuals who have paid a subscription fee or have an active prepaid card to play World of Warcraft, as well as those who have purchased the game and are within their free month of access."
The CNET article goes on to make some somewhat laughable claims about what this means for the future of WoW (for instance, that if we use Everquest as a guide, we can predict that WoW will release 480 expansions over its lifespan), but the core number is astounding. Even now, when everyone is kind of waiting for Cataclysm to start everything back up again, WoW's subscribers are still increasing.

We're constantly at work to bring you new and better Cataclysm-related tools, and today we've released one we think will be pretty helpful - a new
skill page! On the page, you'll see a list of each item you can piece together along with spell to create it, which contains the lore behind each item. Included in the page are how many fragments each artifact requires and what kind of keystones you can use to make it.

nerdiest story ever told.
