Linked NPCs for Boss Encounters
To clarify this:
It's seems like a very minor thing but it is so so frustrating as a user because people want to look up Spirit Kings not one the four individual guys that make up the encounter whose names they dont even remember. Right now, typing "Spirit Kings" into the search boss doesn't even turn up any results, so it's not even like you can look it up to at least get to the individual NPC pages.
The individual bosses are all listed on their master raid pages and appropriately linked to the instances, but there needs to be a unique page for the encounters itself. I understand why it does this from a database perspective, but it makes no sense from a user perspective. No one thinks of NPCs in council-style fights as individuals, they think of them as a collective singular unit "boss." Given that multi-NPC encounters are pretty common and Tier 14 alone has four bosses like this (Stone Guardians, Spirit Kings, Will of the Emperor and Protectors of the Endless), I'd say this should be something the devs should prioritise.
First, I want to say in general I think the filters are great and something one thing that is better than wowhead right out the gate.
I want to be able to apply filters to something I've already looked up. For example, if I look up a boss by putting his name in the search box, I want to be able to filter his loot to just normal/LFR/Heroic/Elite/whatever. Or if I look up a gem by the name in the search box, to be able to filter the results by stats for cuts. You can't do that now - you have to start right away from item / gem / added in Mists / blue quality / orange colour / intell. I don't think most people look up that way; it's too cumbersome. They throw Vermillion Onyx in the box and then want to filter the results to relevant cuts. It is especially annoying for looking up boss loot since you can't filter by boss. So you either have to look up the boss itself and pick through the search results with the normal/elite/raid/LFR duplications, or you have to look up the raid instance itself via the filters and pick through the results for the particular boss whose loot table you wanted to look up.
Your search engine sucks. If I typo on spelling or only remember half the name, it's not smart about suggesting alternatives. On one hand, I am dumb and this is my problem. On the other hand, it's very realistic to acknowledge that members aren't going to remember if it's spelled Tsulong or Tsulang, or if there is a hyphen or apostrophe somewhere that they are forgetting, which is why the page isn't yielding results. I shouldn't have to look up something to look it up.
Finally, if you look up something that only has one search result, it should go right away to that page.
OKAY I AM DONE FOR THE MOMENT.
