From Legion's launch to attending the black-carpet premiere of the Warcraft movie, the Wowhead staff has enjoyed providing you with the best possible information!
To celebrate the year's end and this year's Feast of Winter Veil, we've teamed up with our friends at ORIGIN PC, Blizzard, J!NX, and WoW TCG Loot for an epic set of gifts!

7.1.5 PTR: Compilation of All Class Changes From All Builds - Sun, 18 Dec 2016 18:45:12 -0600 The 7.1.5 PTR has been active for many weeks now, and a popular request we've gotten at Wowhead is to present an overview of the class changes from Patch 7.1 to 7.1.5, aka "unofficial patch notes." Every week Wowhead posts a list of the datamined changes from each 7.1.5 PTR update, but some players would also like to see the changes from the past few months to get an overall sense of how the classes evolve.
Wowhead Weekly #104 covers the latest 7.1.5 PTR news, including more micro-holidays and spell updates. Other news included the Nighthold release date and the start of Feast of Winter Veil.
Wowhead Weekly is a World of Warcraft podcast with Wowhead Site Manager Perculia and Video Manager TradeChat where all the recent Blizzard news and Wowhead developments are discussed. You can subscribe to our YouTube Channel to see every episode.
