Were you looking for info about the web site Blizzard Watch, which features articles by many of the same authors? Or perhaps Blizzard's WoW Insider series of online newsletters?

WoW Insider, formerly known as, was a popular blog and news site about World of Warcraft that occasionally referenced WoWWiki. This site was originally a spin-off of Joystiq in late 2005, but was reachable as a subdomain of Joystiq as of September 2010.[2]

Unfortunately in late February 2014, many of the regular features were cut due to budget cuts coming down from the AOL parent company.[3] Among the cuts were class blogs.[4]

WoW Insider has been officially shut down on the Joystiq network as of February 3, 2015.[5] However, shortly after Wow Insider ceased operations, several of its popular bloggers moved over to a new site, This transition was spear-headed by Wow-insider's then Editor-in-Cheif, Alex Ziebart, and made possible through donations via Patreon.
