I'm done for today, but if anyone wants to keep doing this, go ahead. Here are some that I want:

Master List[edit source]

  • Finale
  • Song
  • Energizing
  • Scavenger's
  • Predator's
  • Natural
  • Harrier
  • Intervention
  • Auspicious
Comments: One problem... Auspicious Parry doesn't give energy. Also, I hate edit conflicts. --Rollerzerris.jpg <!--Zerris--> 19:07, 3 April 2007 (CDT)
  • Tiger
  • Melandru's
  • Frenzied
  • Judge's
Zealot's Fire is Fire Damage, which is the reason I included the note. Your call. --Rollerzerris.jpg <!--Zerris--> 23:47, 4 April 2007 (CDT)
  • Purge
  • Vital
  • Bull's, Oxen
  • Wild
  • Rampage
  • Power (There are three discernable uses for this one)
Comments: "Power --" Has only two meanings, Interrupt and + Damage. "-- Power" has only one meaning, namely +Energy. I'd do them seperately. --Rollerzerris.jpg <!--Zerris--> 19:03, 3 April 2007 (CDT)
The three uses I found: 1) Inturruption, such as Power Block 2) Energy, such as Well of Power, and 3) +Damage, such as Power Shot.--Nog64Talk Yaaaay.png 19:23, 3 April 2007 (CDT)

--Nog64Talk Yaaaay.png 23:01, 2 April 2007 (CDT)

Same ones I noted. Power -- as in Power Shot, Power -- as in Power Block, and -- Power as in Well of Power. --Rollerzerris.jpg <!--Zerris--> 19:30, 3 April 2007 (CDT)
K, we on the same page then, I think.--Nog64Talk Yaaaay.png 19:31, 3 April 2007 (CDT)

Notes:

-- Shot = Power Shot, Distracting Shot, Savage Shot...

(???) = No Catagory Description, as of yet.

--Rollerzerris.jpg <!--Zerris--> 23:22, 2 April 2007 (CDT)

I wanted Scourge, Pure, Vital, and Bulls, and Judge's and Frenzied sound nice. Adding the pertinent ones to my list. Keep in mind that like "Heal" obviously means it heals. I want the more questionable ones.--Nog64Talk Yaaaay.png 08:22, 3 April 2007 (CDT)

I think you mean Purge. Pure is only in Pure Strike. --Rollerzerris.jpg <!--Zerris--> 09:58, 3 April 2007 (CDT)
Also, I got a little OCD and aplhabetized the whole thing and all the smaller lists. --Rollerzerris.jpg <!--Zerris--> 10:21, 3 April 2007 (CDT)
Yeah, meant purge.--Nog64Talk Yaaaay.png 14:13, 3 April 2007 (CDT)
Hmm, just seeing what everyone is up to. This looks interesting I must admit... and for shot wouldn't it just be a melee projectile? Nothing of real importance. Readem (talk*contribs) 00:27, 4 April 2007 (CDT)
Many of the ones I listed are "Duh" kinds. I'm just listing them all, and Nog can sort them out. --Rollerzerris.jpg <!--Zerris--> 09:37, 4 April 2007 (CDT)

Suffixes?[edit source]

Are we including that? If so: Nearly finished with:

As One[edit source]

  • Skills: Insert if we do do suffixes with this skill modifier thingy.—Cheese.jpg Cheese Slaya (Talk) 17:19, 9 April 2007 (CDT)
We do. Addint it now.--Nog64Talk Yaaaay.png 17:25, 9 April 2007 (CDT)

Prison[edit source]

Think you forgot this one too,

Might not be all, just all i can think of right now.—Cheese.jpg Cheese Slaya (Talk) 01:43, 10 April 2007 (CDT)

Boon[edit source]

Did i miss any?—Cheese.jpg Cheese Slaya (Talk) 01:50, 10 April 2007 (CDT)

Also needs Strength, for like an increase in damage. Spirit's Strength, Signet of Strength... too lazy to finish it now.—Cheese.jpg Cheese Slaya (Talk) 01:52, 10 April 2007 (CDT)

And other stuff like blow or agression. I'll do these tomorrow if nobody else has by then.—Cheese.jpg Cheese Slaya (Talk) 01:54, 10 April 2007 (CDT)

What about something like this? Head campaign: Proph, Factions, NF Professions: Ranger, assassin, warrior meaning: causes daze

Skills: broad head arrow skull crack(relates to head) golden skull strike(relates to head) headbutt concussion shot(relates to head) —Cheese.jpg Cheese Slaya (Talk) 02:26, 10 April 2007 (CDT) sorry about all the misspellings and uncapitalization and stuff, just really tired lol—Cheese.jpg Cheese Slaya (Talk) 02:27, 10 April 2007 (CDT)

I've done most of them, we only have the obvious ones like blow and shot(if we include them) then we're done I think.—Cheese.jpg Cheese Slaya (Talk) 12:14, 10 April 2007 (CDT)

I'm not even through all the professions... my list is only half done! --Rollerzerris.jpg <!--Zerris--> 17:02, 10 April 2007 (CDT)

I've done a lot though from my list I keep in my head:D—Cheese.jpg Cheese Slaya (Talk) 17:39, 10 April 2007 (CDT)

What not to include[edit source]

We've been really good on this, but I figure let me just lay down one rule: If it's obvious what the prefix/suffix means, don't put it in. For example Heal will not go on because obviously skills with "Heal" in them heal. Many attributes have a prefix (i.e. Firey), but they are so obvious that we don't need to put them.--Nog64Talk Yaaaay.png 18:07, 10 April 2007 (CDT)

Judge's[edit source]

Firstly, there's an apostrophe-s there. Secondly, I would change the description to "Deals damage, usually holy damage." But this is a great list! You should move it to the main namespace when it's complete. --Armond Warblade Warrior(talk) 23:07, 18 April 2007 (CDT)

And give credit:)—Cheese.jpg Cheese Slaya (Talk) 23:14, 18 April 2007 (CDT)
Credit? On a wiki? Blasphemy! (I would so love to make blasphemy a link to some wikipedia policy cause that would look awesome but I'm lazy. :P) --Armond Warblade Warrior(talk) 00:40, 19 April 2007 (CDT)
Credit's on the talk page, Cheese, but yeah, I'm gonna launch this into the main space soon, I'm just gonna grab an admin and see if everything checks out.--Nog64Talk Yaaaay.png 17:49, 19 April 2007 (CDT)
Woohoo.—Cheese.jpg Cheese Slaya (Talk) 23:01, 19 April 2007 (CDT)

what about the refrains[edit source]

Bladeturn refrain, mending refrain, burning refrain, aggressive refrain. Should be something like "Meaning: Refrains refresh their duration upon the ending of a chant or shout" or something of the like, just thought it should be added.... forgot to log in/sign...--Idiot 15:25, 2 May 2007 (CDT)

Isn't refrain a skill type? If not, go ahead.--Nog64Talk Yaaaay.png 18:21, 2 May 2007 (CDT)

Conjure?[edit source]

The three conjures make increased damage for elemental weapons and there are those two degeneration conjures. They both deal some kind of extra damage over time. Could this be included? M s4 20:05, 4 May 2007 (CDT)

sure--Nog64Talk Yaaaay.png 10:52, 6 May 2007 (CDT)
I was gonna add this in today lol.—Cheese.jpg Cheese Slaya (Talk) 11:24, 6 May 2007 (CDT)
Added it, I might have missed something or done something wrong, looks correct to me. M s4 15:20, 6 May 2007 (CDT)
the association is somewhat flimsy, and conjure simply means "to create", so it could be said that these skills are just simple descriptions, not prefixed. --Honorable Sarah Honorable Icon.gif 15:50, 6 May 2007 (CDT)

Mind[edit source]

I just edited the "mind" paragraph about Mind Wrack. Mind Wrack triggers when enemy's energy reaches 0, so it is still true that it hits when the enemy's energy is lower than the caster's. I think in fact a more general description of the "Mind" suffix would be "Benefits when the enemy is low on energy" or "when the enemy's energy reaches a certain threshold (being 0 or the caster's energy). This would permit us to add Mind Wrack to the list. What do you think ?--PatRedway 18:31, 24 May 2007 (CDT)

Thought about that too, but It would be very hard to word. I'd leave it as is.--Nog64Talk Yaaaay.png 18:02, 14 May 2007 (CDT)

Page name[edit source]

doesn't this violate some sort of capitalization thing? either way the name isn't exactly intuitive. How about... Skill Nomenclature?

How does is violate capitalization?--Nog64Talk Yaaaay.png 21:01, 12 May 2007 (CDT)
GuildWiki: Use lower caseJediRogue JediRogueSig.jpg (talk |contribs) 21:34, 12 May 2007 (CDT)

TOC[edit source]

Is there a way we can make the TOC hide by default, or something? It's freaking huge. --Armond Warblade Warrior(talk) 19:54, 24 May 2007 (CDT)

It is indeed huge but it is definitly useful, more useful than the average TOC. It's pretty hard to look through this very long list and find what you need without it. I think that would merit it to be shown. M s4 20:58, 24 May 2007 (CDT)

What about the Avatar skills?

No they're a skill type called Form. But to get back on topic, the TOC is definately needed.--Nog64Talk Yaaaay.png 22:21, 26 May 2007 (CDT)
/agreed.—Cheese.jpg Cheese Slaya (Talk) 23:19, 26 May 2007 (CDT)
I forgot TOCs existed I've had them turned off for so long in my preferences. LOL. — JediRogue JediRogueSig.jpg 23:30, 26 May 2007 (CDT)
My point is that it's so effin' huge that it actually degrades the usefulness of the page. Perhaps there's a way to make it appear alongside the text? Or if we could make it auto-hide, people could just expand it as needed. --Armond Warblade Warrior(talk) 23:35, 27 May 2007 (CDT)
We could make a show/hide bar.--Nog64Talk Yaaaay.png 17:36, 28 May 2007 (CDT)
Well now its on the right, and I think it looks very good this way. M s4 07:41, 29 May 2007 (CDT)

Ergh[edit source]

This is much more a list of words that happen to be in common in skill names than "prefixes and suffixes." Sharing a word doesn't make that word an affix. Affixes modify the meaning of the base. --Fyren 07:35, 25 June 2007 (CDT)

Dagger[edit source]

Is Dagger worth including? Crippling Dagger, Dancing Daggers, and Disrupting Dagger are all ranged assassin spells with half-normal range that do earth damage. Stone Daggers also does earth damage but has full range. On the other hand, Sharpen Daggers is not a spell at all. Krenn 14:12, 3 July 2007 (CDT)

Memories[edit source]

As in "Soothing Memories" and "Renewing Memories". Spells that modify energy while holding an item A.Saturnus 19:10, 4 July 2007 (CDT)

Divine[edit source]

I think this needs to be altered. Divine Spirit: Allows massive healing wtf? Basically means Divine Favor related stated earlier.--Cursed Condemner 19:18, 2 August 2007 (CDT)

Critical[edit source]

Maybe a Critical section should be made, consisting of Critical Strike, Critical Agility, Critical Defenses, Critical Eye, and Critical Strikes --Gimmethegepgun 19:43, 2 August 2007 (CDT)

In spirit but not in name[edit source]

I think for completeness, Dark Fury should be added to the Orders list and Sloth Hunter's Shot should be added to the Wastrel's list. Rette Alarix 21:04, 13 November 2007 (UTC)


conjure[edit source]

why is there no conjure earth--72.83.152.240 00:34, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Because ANet didn't make it --Gimmethegepgun 00:46, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
Because putting dirt on your sword doesn't really have the same effect as ice, fire, or electricity? Rette Alarix 08:34, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
SHARP dirt! --Gimmethegepgun 02:50, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
Conjure Frost.jpgConjure Flame.jpgConjure Lightning.jpgCrushing Blow.jpg Behold, conjure Earth! M s4 17:05, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Rofl. but i wished they did make a Conjure skill for Earth. maybe call it Conjure Sand? I mean, sand can be rough. but then dervishes would just use it with an Ebon weapon and Ebon Dust Aura... but still! they should've made Conjure Sand or something of that nature. and maybe something like Mind Dust too...
