Trivia[edit source]

Accept: "I do not fear death!"

In the Pirates of the Caribbean movie Dead Man's Chest, Davy Jones repeatedly asks characters "Do you fear death?".

How long before it's added? Place your bets now. A F K sig 2.jpg A F K When Needed 12:01, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

Grammar ([edit source]

Hi there, I saw your editing here today and just want to tell you I think it's better to have a not-perfectly-worded notes than to have no notes at all, if you'll ever want to re-word something next time, just use Copy (or ctrl+c) and keep the notes where they are until you find the better words for it. I am not a native English speaker so some fixes to the overall wording may be needed and it'd be nice if you'd fix any that you see.

^^Grammar and spelling aren't quite the same thing, but otherwise you're right, and your advice applies to both types of errors. :) RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 14:15, November 22, 2009 (UTC)
You're right, I meant spelling (correcting..). Also thanks for fixing some of the.. grammar/wording/whatever in the article, thats exactly what I wanted :)

Dance of DHUUUUUUM[edit source]

Just wanted to let you know, if Dhuum defeats your party, he starts doing the dervish dance.

Lol, nice. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 23:19, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

Possible Bug[edit source]

The guide says that when a player dies he is taken to the mayor and comes back as a spirit but on 2 occasions I've not died, had a good dp and still found myself standing at the mayor.The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ariendil (contribs) on 27. 11. 2009, 07:21.

Such a bug seems quite unlikely to me. Maybe you didn't even notice, Dhuum can kill a player in the blink of an eye..

Always sunny reference[edit source]

Normally, I support a single trivia bullet for the original source of a reference. In this case, I wonder whether we should restore the Always Sunny in Philly reference: (1) the titles (quest/episode) closely match and (2) the TV reference is topical/timely.   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 09:05, December 2, 2009 (UTC)

I'd say mention it, the Nightman Cometh was the name of Charlie's play which was a play on the Iceman Cometh. 07:13, December 10, 2009 (UTC)
Linsey Murdock said on the GWW talkpage for this quest that the name of this quest indeed came from the TV show. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 07:22, December 10, 2009 (UTC)
Linsey's confirming post   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 19:49, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Reward Dialog[edit source]

I haven't checked in-game to confirm, but the reward dialog in the article currently has "the thread of Dhuum..." Is that correct (should have a [sic] tag) or should it be "The threat of Dhuum..."? Shadowlance 22:24, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

GWW doesn't have a sic, so most likely a typo. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 23:01, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Heroes[edit source]

What happens when heroes dies here??? They go to vale? And then? Auto-comeback? 18:07, February 24, 2010 (UTC)

How large an undertaking?[edit source]

I've done all of the quests at various times in pickup groups and with heroes but never all the way through so I'm having a little trouble guessing how big a chunk of time I'd need to have for this quest. Any guidelines? Longer than first time through Urgoz? under 3 hours if no near wipes? It would be nice to squeeze in in time to collect the reward for The Waiting Game this year but if even experienced groups usually take longer than 3 hours I doubt it would ever be worth it to try. Maybe there's some sort of guideline that could even be placed in the article? It would have to be a range surely.

This would be more appropriate to post at The Underworld. This quest, in itself, does not take that long. 19:54, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
the quest can't be done in isolation and the answer is only relevant to the quest. Every time this quest is done it must be as part of a session that contains all the prerequisites.Driftwood 20:02, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
Right, you are talking about completing all of the Underworld content. Hence, it's more appropriate to discuss it at that article, which covers all Underworld content, rather than this article, which covers only the one quest at the end. 22:06, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
