    Wow, this is exactly what I've been looking for.

    And yeah, I feel bad for the competition. I'm so used to WoWhead that it'll be hard to convert.

    Very clean, attractive, easy to use, and familiar interface. I was just trying to get used to the other up-and-comming database sites when torhead comes out of nowhere to steal me back!

    http://r2-db.com/
    http://www.swtor-spy.com/

    I'll still try to give these guys a fair shot, but they are now playing catch up

    Oh, great. Just tried it out and I love it.
    And I can use my old WoWhead account and not have to create a new one!

    If torhead is as amazing as wowhead, then all the other databases can just give up now.
    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    Sites like Torhead.com are indeed quite nice, such as when you are looking for specific gear upgrades, general quest information etc.

    But what i'm more concerned about, is will there be (or is there already) a site like Wowpedia, but for TOR? Would really love to get detailed information on how crafting works, which professions work best with each other etc.

    did the people behind wowhead bother with a rifthead, LOTRhead or any other heads?

    could this be a sign? or are they just hyped up fanboys too?

    Yeah they must have confidence that this game will succeed to put so much effort into a new site. If it works in a similar way to wowhead it will have to be the most common DB site used which is good for us but a shame for some of the other sites.

    Torhead has the individual class abilities. DH doesn't.

    DH needs to fix that, asap.

    Only due to the huge influx of people visiting it now that NDA is dropped, trying to suss out gear/specs etc.

    It also happened with the first week of WOTLK and CATA.

    Just wait a few days and it will start loading faster, since -Database + Large amount of Users = Lag-

    Great site though.
    Bow down before our new furry overlords!

    I'm sorry for the "competition".
    My own suspicion is that the Universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.

    r2-db is much MUCH better.

    Unfortunately, AT THIS MOMENT, DH beats out Torhead (My opinion). I am confident that in the end, I'll be using Torhead. Torhead talent calculator is EXTREMELY broken (Hi, I'm putting in 4 ranks and it gives me credit for 7 but doesn't unlock tier 2... but it'll unlock tier 2 on another skill tree with 3 ranks!). I have always loved WoWhead's "cleanliness", but for functionality right now, DH is slightly ahead (Once again, just my opinion).

    Of course torhead.com, once it's out of beta, will be of the same quality as wowhead.com is known for.

    Comparing it right now to other stuff makes no sense.
    My own suspicion is that the Universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.
