Web Tools for WoW Nerds
Quite a treat to wake up and see so many people checking out the site! Amazingly enough there have only been a few hiccups on the site and I’m watching the server closely to make sure it stays up for you folks.
Couple quick notes for those new to the site:
Made a few small updates to Epeen Bot
Just went through and updated the Raid Achievement Bot with relevant 4.2 raid achievements and updated Compare Bot with some potential mistakes for the new Firelands bosses (huge thanks to Chris!). Basic normal mode abilities are what should be covered right now for all formats (10 and 25, normal and heroic). Heroic -only abilities are probably not accounted for at this time.
If I missed anything that you think should be in that list, let me know!
Also, Epeen Bot is still new and shiny and received some minor updates (typos, style issues, etc).
And to make DPS Bot not feel left out, Argaloth should now be properly show up in the previous tiers menu. Good ol’ Argaloth.
The bots are now happy.
Minor Update: There’s a bug with Epeen Bot right now if your character names starts with a funky letter, potentially. For example, if your character name starts with Ñ and you search for that character, it may not show any results. The current wordaround is to change the URL and swap out the lowercase funky letter to the upper case version. I’ll try to fix that tonight.
It’s been in the works for a while and I’m finally releasing it!
The newest bot to the family lets you take an in-depth look at any single character that has public parses on World of Logs. You can check the history of DPS for that character and see how they compare to the rest of the raiding population.
There’s a lot more info on how it works and what it’s showing on the FAQ once you look a character up.
Let me know what you think! Report any bugs! Rant and/or rave about it on your guild forums!
Last note – I’m using CloudFlare in the hope that it’ll provide some site speedup among other things. If you notice anything weird on any of the old stuff, please let me know!
You can now get to the 4.0 bosses from the Previous Tiers navigation in the right column. There was much rejoicing! I forgot to fix a bug that definitely affects Firefox and may affect IE where some bosses (Beth’ilac most notably) will show the wrong menu. I might try to just ninja fix that tonight.
I’ve added a few more percentiles to the mix (25/75/95/99) mostly in support of an upcoming new Bot. Data is being crunched for the past as we speak. It’ll take a while.
A few folks have been sending me some info on new mistakes and debuffs to track for the new bosses. Those people are awesome. I’ll hopefully get to those later this week or next as I carve out some time. For the moment, I’m in the middle of a bunch of work on the new Bot so I’m focusing on that until I can ship it.
