Wowhead is a World of Warcraft information database featuring a JavaScript interface. The site catalogs items, quests, talents, and much more — all able to be searched, sorted, and arranged to find the information needed. Wowhead is currently the only major database website that has been mentioned by Blizzard in their Community Spotlight.

The website started out as a talent calculator in December 2005. The talent calculator offers the ability to import builds from Blizzard talent calculators. It was in beta from April 4th to June 25th, 2006[2], and the database was released on June 26th, 2006[3].

Wowhead makes extensive use of AJAX for its interface function and requires JavaScript to be enabled in order to function.
