WoW Insider, formerly known as WoW.com, 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.
WoW Insider has been shut down with the Joystiq network. The official shut down date is 2/3/2015.
Several of WoW Insider's popular bloggers have moved over to their new site, www.blizzardwatch.com. This transition has been spear-headed by Wow-insider's Editor-in-Cheif, Alex Ziebart, and made possible through donations via Patreon.
