    I may be the minority, but I vaaaastyly prefer the light background with dark text to the white-on-black.

    It looks more professional to me, and it makes it distinct from every other gaming site out there.

    But that's me.

    I prefer a dark background, but overall I still find the layout more pleasing to the eyes than Wowhead's. No clue why.

    Re: WoWDB Feedback

    Noodle Secrets Long Forgotten has quests in the series that need to be hidden.


    As for why there are two versions of Secrets Lost, Forever? - I don't know. On the one hand only one of the two is an auto-accept, which matches with what I experienced in the game. On the other hand, the non-auto accept is the one which has a map and location on WoWDB. :\

    Justin's Fun Test needs to be removed from http://www.wowdb.com/world-events/37...related:quests.

    So do Welcome to Brewfest! / Welcome to Brewfest!.

    And Brewfest Riding Rams / Brewfest Riding Rams.

    And The Best of Brews / The Best of Brews. It may not have been removed from players logs (6 years is a long time to keep a quest in your log, lol) but I don't think it should be listed because it'll likely just confuse most users.

    Also, Save Brewfest!.

    And Seek the Saboteurs.

    In response to a thread on reddit, I tried to find the Timeless Coin droprate.
    Wowhead failed me, so I turned to wowdb.

    It's still hard to find, but you have it and it looks reasonable (contrasted with wowhead's numbers which look low).

    You have the information, but it's not highly visible and not in text.

    The AMOUNT dropped doesn't show up at all on the currency's "dropped by npc" page.

    http://www.wowdb.com/currencies/777-...dropped-by-npc

    If you click through to a mob and click THE SECOND "drops" tab (kinda confusing that there are two tabs with same name) then you can see an image with the text drop range superimposed:

    e.g.
    Dread Ship Vazuvius
    http://www.wowdb.com/npcs/73281-drea...drops-currency
    15-1715

    http://imgur.com/jQMpr5I

    Would be fantastic to see this all on the first link and be able to sort by the drop amount.

    It would be neat to do the same with Lesser Coins of Good Fortune, and other currencies, but since Timeless Isle is current content that's what I searched for.

    The other tab should probably be renamed Currencies.

    As far as listing the count there, how would the sort even work? Most of the sources have a giant drop rate like the one you listed, 15-1715.

    chaud: could take raw mean and use that as the true sorting criterion.

    I mean, if only like 5 people got 15 coins from Dread Ship, and the majority got say, 957, then you could calculate and store that without -too- much more hassle than say, 15-1715.

    Sort by max seems to involve least calculation, but I could be wrong.

    Simca's idea of mean could work, or maybe median.

    Maybe people don't need to see the range 15-1715 and the mean/median would be good enough?

    Well, I like that idea in any case.

    Since we are talking about currencies, I'm gearing up a new character and trying to figure out how to obtain bonus roll tokens for prior content.

    1)
    The currency page for
    Mogue Rune of Fate
    http://www.wowdb.com/currencies/752-mogu-rune-of-fate

    don't show that it's purchaseable for 1000 timeless coins from mistweaver ai

    neither do the pages for timeless coins
    http://www.wowdb.com/currencies/777-timeless-coin

    or mistweaver ai
    http://www.wowdb.com/npcs/73305-mist...#related:sells

    wowhead has the same omission.

    2)
    I have NOT confirmed in game, but wowhead reported in 5.4 ptr that you could purchase
    Elder Charm of Good Fortune
    for 500 justice points
    from Commander Lo Ping

    http://www.wowhead.com/news=215954/5...n-gear-changes

    I don't see any reference to this in wowdb or wowhead, so will have to check in game to confirm.

    I think there is a bug that is messing up vendor pages right now.

    I don't know about elder charms but you can buy mogu runes.

    I think Elder Charms are still only available from the regular places on Isle of Thunder.

    The profiler (and probably database) did not support buying currencies with currencies from vendors.

    The profiler does now (or will soon); we'll see if database does/will as well.

    I just confirmed with my own eyes on live.

    Commander Lo Ping sells them for 500JP each.

    One thing I would like is to have a way that you can click on a spell/ability's icon and have a popup that lists the name of the icon (for pasting into WeakAuras, for example). This is similar to what Wowhead does; for example:

    http://www.wowhead.com/spell=109773

    and click on the spell Icon; you'll get a popup that has the name of the icon used. Presently you have to View Source or view the image details to see the name of the icon.

    I think it might be a good idea to have the name just be there, without the popup, perhaps under the Quick Info panel, or even something like as the title/alt attribute of the icon itself. Just a simple (using Dark Intent as the example again):

    * Icon: spell_warlock_focusshadow

    btw for the people that keep asking and in case you missed it in the news - wowdb has a modelviewer now and it seems to work a lot better than wowhead's for most things.

    Blizzard applied a hotfix via realm restart to update the level 85 Brewfest items Direbrew's Bloodied Shanker and Tremendous Tankard O' Terror. Unfortunately, WoWDB still shows the 365 versions instead of the 470 versions.

    WoWDB does not display what the Timeless armor converts to upon use.

    For example, WoWDB's Timeless Cloth Boots page versus Wowhead's Timeless Cloth Boots page.

    This is information that WoWDB ought to have, too.

    Star Belt's reagents tier breakdown incorrectly states that "Iron Buckle x 2" is needed. Only one Iron Buckle is actually required as part of the necessary crafting reagents.
