WoW Talents

Time to update this blog, and hopefully keep it current this time.

WoW Talents has been released on the market for approximately 1 month. In that time, it's been downloaded ~12,000 times and received 176 ratings, with an average of 4.5 stars. Not bad at all, if I say so myself.

The current version is 2.03, which is updated to beta build 13033. I have an update ready to roll out for build 13066 (Codename Bubbles), but given that I have updated 3 times in 2 days, I think I will wait for build 13082 to be applied on cata.wowhead so I can parse the new talent data.

I should also note, I have re-implemented the parsing tools I wrote for the Cataclysm data, and it should be considerably more accurate. Hopefully that will be the last of the cut-off talent descriptions and erroneous numbers. For those of you who are curious, I parse through the javascript data files of cata.wowhead's talent calculator and spit it back out into xml files. For the original Wrath app, I parsed wowarmory's calculator, which is clearly not yet available for Cataclysm. The new tools work off Wowhead, which should allow accurate information before the updates are live on servers.
