We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

The blog World of Warcraft Fortunes is collecting data on the outcomes of reading Mysterious Fortune Cards. The table summarizes the results of 2402 read Fortunes.
From the data—which does not yet include a 5000 Fortune—the average value of a Fortune is 2.6. The long-term expected value of an unread Fortune thus depends primarily on the drop rate of the 5000 Fortune:
- 1 in 10000 drop rate → 3.2 average.
- 1 in 5000 drop rate → 3.7 average.
- 1 in 2000 drop rate → 5.2 average.
- Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Added.
