    Wowhead down

    Wowhead has been down for 12 hours now. I can't play wow without it (as I look things up constantly), what is happening?

    Perculia posted this on Discord earlier.
    Wowhead's service provider is causing our intermittent site issues. it's taking a while to fix because the various companies we work with are finding the issue difficult to replicate and suggesting we try different leads. this error is not caused by ads, or faulty code the wowhead staff can fix - all we can do is to keep nagging various providers to escalate the issue and provide them with error logs

    Hopefully they take the time to fix all the issues on their site whilst it's not live.

    Wowhead has been near-unusable for me lately anyway. I use Adblock Plus and there is still so much getting through that it has literally caused my Chrome to give up (message along the lines of "Awww snap! We seem to have run out of memory while attempting to load this page.").

    It probably died because of all the ads

    I am not even sure if the ads are intended. Looked more like as if their search bar was compromised.

    Works fine for me as well.

    Repeating what Danzel said above: Wowhead's service provider is causing our intermittent site issues. it's taking a while to fix because the various companies we work with are finding the issue difficult to replicate and suggesting we try different leads. this error is not caused by ads, or faulty code the wowhead staff can fix - all we can do is to keep nagging various providers to escalate the issue and provide them with error logs

    Definitely used wowhead for 30+ minutes less than 12 hours ago. Works now too.

    Do you really need it that badly? lol I mean I go there a lot, but probably average less than 1 visit per play session.

    uBlock Origin + uBlock Origin Extra

    Install them in Chrome. Now.

    Teh awesome. You will feel it.

    Dump Adblock Plus. It's electronic fecal matter.

    Thanks! I'll check that out. Adblock was great for years, but now so many sites are finding ways to get crap throuh. Wowhead and MMO-Champion seem to be the worst offenders, but Wowhead level of ads blows everyone out of the water.

    Yep, good ol' thottbot. One comment about the item, where it drops and such, a thousand comments about hunter items and Mankrik's wife. Nostalgia.

    It's really more that Adblock started taking payments to allow ads to go through.

    2hander with no stats and an on-hit dmg proc?

    huntier weapwn!!!!

    I honestly did not like wowhead at all when it started. Thought the other datamining sites were much better designed and preferred MMOC for news.
