Image Titling[]

Macros, your image Image:1890.JPG is too generically titled. If you could re-upload that image with a more descriptive name, by following the directions for image naming [[1]], it would be much appreciated. --User:AlbinobirdAlbinobird 00:06, 5 April 2007 (CDT)

Recent Notes cleanup[]

I think it is good that you are trying to reduce the amount of clutter which clearly exists in the wiki, but I think you are deleting wayyy too much. M s4 17:14, 12 May 2007 (CDT)

Most of that is obvious stuff that can be found in the skill description, or general knowledge about the game. --Macros 17:16, 12 May 2007 (CDT)
I think I agree with M s4. Its one thing to eliminate things that are overly verbose but some things are useful. Plus I don't think I'd flag those as minor edits. — JediRogue JediRogueSig.jpg (talk |contribs) 17:45, 12 May 2007 (CDT)
Sorry, I have my minor edit box automatically checked. :P Forget to turn it off. --Macros 18:42, 12 May 2007 (CDT)
Yes, I could in fact infer most of the notes that you did delete with general knowledge of the game, but there are many newbies that do not know even 30% of the skills in the game and refer to wiki to help them out in the game. These notes greatly help them. M s4 16:13, 13 May 2007 (CDT)
Then by all means, I won't stop you from adding any other notes you want. --Macros 17:23, 13 May 2007 (CDT)

Eternal Aura[]

I believe the fact that it recharges the avatar skills when no other skill in the game has done it so far, and even though the avatar skills say "disabled" for 120 seconds is very noteworthy. I'm not going to break the revert policy, though. Consensus will decide. Spen 20:16, 15 June 2007 (CDT)

I found it very obvious and knew without even testing that it would recharge forms. Disabled only means Diversion and HRT things won't work on it, otherwise it's just a normal recharge. If someone else re-adds the note I won't remove it again though. --Macros 20:19, 15 June 2007 (CDT)
Well, every other skill in the game that should work past the disabled for 120 seconds thing thus far has not, whereas this skill has. If you viewed the talk page, most of the people discussing were unsure, and it had to be tested. I think that alone merits mention, because some people didn't know. Spen 20:24, 15 June 2007 (CDT)
If you somehow got a hold of Assassin's Promise I'm sure it would recharge forms. --Macros 20:29, 15 June 2007 (CDT)

summon spirits[]

why did you revert my edit to spirit about summon spirits? read the skill, use it, and note how it heals YOU not THEM. — ~Soqed Hozi~ 17:00, 12 August 2007 (CDT)

Because it doesn't? --Macros 19:46, 12 August 2007 (CDT)
yes it does. — ~Soqed Hozi~ 01:33, 13 August 2007 (CDT)
Try testing it. I went to the Isle of the Nameless, cast a spirit, used Spirit Transfer, walked a bit away, then used Summon Spirits. The spirit got healed. I stood next to the student of bleeding and I did not get healed. --Macros 10:48, 13 August 2007 (CDT)
ok confirmed, it does heal the spirit. But previously, ie. a week or two after they were released, it healed the caster. I used to use as a minor self heal on my necro for titan source and luxon FFF. Then it DEFINATELY healed me. Apoligies (sp). — ~Soqed Hozi~ 13:27, 13 August 2007 (CDT)

Typical vandal. He picked random pages. Macros was the first one to give him a warning, which the vandal naturally would see as a challange.

You haven't done anything to deserve a ban Silver Sunlight. I believe that Marcos hasn't followed policy, and so an admin should look at his conduct and decide.

You just took out the note that it is the fastest speed boost available (on Dash, the template.) What do you think the purpose of 'notes' are? --Necro spider2.jpg Skax459 23:10, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Quick reference notes are for things like "this skill causes you to lose all energy" or "damage is armor ignoring." If you want to add that note I think it should belong on the skill page itself, however I would say it's the fastest speed buff available to the player, as a few other skills give 50%. --Macros 23:15, 6 November 2007 (UTC)
Additionally, the fact that it is fasted would be apparent from the qr itself. It doesn't need to be noted separately. —JediRogue 23:29, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

No. Thats because you hit someone in frenzy or something like that. This, without anything helping it such as level or dungeon bossyness can do more damage. That normally does about 150, this does 600. Please, Find me another skill that says target foe takes SIX HUNDERED DAMAGE.--GatessMoebius Strike Icon.jpgThe Gates Assassin 18:38, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

gg...--GatessMoebius Strike Icon.jpgThe Gates Assassin 19:57, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
Mmhmm. You do realize that damage is highly situational and that things like armor, skills, and stuff will change it? So saying "this is the highest damage skill in the game" is pretty stupid because I could aggro all the dredge in Urgoz's Warren and use Savannah Heat on them... I bet I'd do more than 1,000 damage. Or aggro all the Sickened Animals in Minister Cho's Estate. Or use a catapult.
On a side note claiming "that doesn't count because you used Frenzy" reminded me of people saying "you shouldn't win because you're so cheap" in SSBB. Yes I'm an addict. --Macros 22:20, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
That wasnt my point...My point was this: If I said take Shock and Lightning orb and asked you what does more damage, would you say "Shock, if the target had no armor, frenzy, heal sig and you just happened to be level 800"? Lightning orb says 25% armor pen and 106 damage and shock says...less. --GatessMoebius Strike Icon.jpgThe Gates Assassin 06:31, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Necromancer Trainers[]

I'd have to agree with the person wayyy up there about u deleting too much. The reason I put the thing about trainers is some people may get lost and look on the necromancer page for necromancer trainers. It may seem stupid, but there are those noobs that just need a lot of help, and there is otherwise no obvious way to find the necromancer trainers. Shadow Form.jpg Lee 17:50, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

NOXion buster[]

The Countdown isn't part of the skill. He uses Countdown, and then he starts the casting. It's uninterruptable because there is nothing there to interrupt.Entrea SumataeEntrea [Talk] 16:50, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

The way it works is: He uses Countdown. For the next 10 seconds, Ion Buster is uninterruptible. When countdown ends, Ion Buster can be interrupted. If you're saying he waits until the 10 seconds is up to start casting Ion Buster, I haven't seen that happen. Usually he uses Ion Buster right away. --Macros 17:11, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
I don't know what happens when you go in, but whenever I've seen it, he uses countdown, and can't start the cast of the Buster until the countdown is 0. Sometimes he does use another version of Countdown before he fires, but he never uses Ion Buster before his first countdown is finished. And even if that wasn't true, that would make NOXion buster uninterruptable, because Countdown lasts the same amount of time as NOXion's casting time. And I know it can be interrupted.Entrea SumataeEntrea [Talk] 17:13, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
He counts and then uses while counting on most occasions. Sometimes he waits a second or two, but he never waits a full 10 seconds. This is why daze a nd migraine are so useful, because without them, you have a variable slight window of time at the end of the spell. Powersurge360 17:17, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Well, everytime I've done this, I bring 2 BHA's, so he's constantly dazed. I know that even with the entire party auto-attacking him, Ion Buster never gets interrupted... until the number above his head reaches 0. Then 1 hit is enough to interrupt it. --Macros 17:18, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
I think I've figured out what happens now. He can't use the Buster more times than he's completed the Countdown, but if he's counting down to charge his next Buster, his first can't be interrupted.Entrea SumataeEntrea [Talk] 17:27, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
I find it doubtful that it would be something so complex. --Macros 17:40, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Not really. stateoftheart is kind of like 8th grade algebra to one of my intellect.
On another note, my guildie has like 17 chars, so I'm sure I'll be killing NOX again. I'll make sure to check to see what he does then. --Macros 17:50, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
The simplest explanation is that Countdown has an effect not mentioned in the description, namely, "For 10 seconds, you cannot be interrupted." —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 18:06, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Just beat Nox again. The first time he used Countdown, he used Ion Buster right away, without waiting for the countdown to finish or start a second one. --Macros 18:46, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

I've been able to interrupt Ion Buster in the middle of its activation. (before 10s over) Had BHA and Extend Conditions and a ton of hard interrupts, and even if he was Dazed sometimes the skill would get interrupted way before the halfway point. Like almost immediately.

This is what I said in game, but I'll put it here for documentation purposes:
I thought it would be overpowered because someone could cast it 5-6 times, having 1 pip of degen, and removing 5-6 hexes at the same time.
I didn't realize you meant multiple people had to a) bring the skill and cast it on the same person and b) each have 1 pip of degen. That makes it somewhat less overpowered :P --Macros 14:44, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

He'll probably never come back or post anything again and so I saw no reason to ban the user. Moreover, the GW:GNA policy says that we will never host content that is explicitly for breaking the rules etc., but not that we will ban users for taking such actions/encouraging them.

How're you doing? --- VipermagiSig.JPG -- (contribs) (talk) 20:12, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

Just got back from familyland and thanksgiving vacation. That does look interesting, but if those are in-game renders, then I will have to significantly upgrade my PC in order to play it. Too bad it's an MMORPG, and most likely pay to play... I haven't really had an interest in getting a new online game and meeting new people. Believe it or not, my guild is still active and we still play GW :P --Macros 01:37, November 28, 2009 (UTC)
It apparently is "graphically stunning, [but] highly scaleable, allowing the game to run flawlessly on low end PCs." But I can't imagine it running well on my old computer, ever :P If it will turn out to be p2p, I'll pass regardless of awesomeness, I think. Beta could still be fun, though.
I really should get to finishing Vanq some time. I've been telling myself to at least do one area every two days, but it's not working well... Killed Dhuum yet? ;o --- VipermagiSig.JPG -- (contribs) (talk) 12:43, November 28, 2009 (UTC)
Actually, it doesn't look that much like an RPG after all. At least, it says it doesn't have "classes" and "levels" in the traditional sense. Hopefully that means it will be more like GW than WoW, i.e., once you reach the "cap", everyone's on equal footing, and it's player skill rather than equipment that makes you good. It also says they're aiming for a 2009 release, but are still in the alpha stages :P
And no, we haven't beat Dhuum yet. They tried last night (without me, as I wasn't home yet), but none of us are familiar with the new spawns introduced in the Halloween update, so they were caught by surprise when they were expecting the Dryders to come over the bridge in Imprisoned Spirits (which they no longer do). Long story short, a spirit died, they got kicked out. --Macros 16:46, November 28, 2009 (UTC)
I presume there's some leveling system, since it was in Jumpgate 1, too. Classes could rely on the chosen ship, perhaps? Or there's just one class: Pilot :P Apparantly you can also go the economic route (mining and production) so I doubt your class is static ala almost any RPG. Ever played a WCIII Battleships map? Begin as a trader and suddenly pop up as a massive juggernaut of deathbringing (a little underleveled, but oh well). I share hopes on equipment vs. skill. Grinding should make you better, not good.
And that's why you should read the update notes properly :D --- VipermagiSig.JPG -- (contribs) (talk) 17:23, November 28, 2009 (UTC)
I did, and I warned them, but the notes don't say where the new spawns are. I have a feeling the Dryders appeared right where they were standing. They probably could have survived, but somehow one of the spirits died. Or perhaps two, they're not really sure. --Macros 22:20, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

genericizing Snowball skills[]

Every Halloween/Wintersday, I swear I'm going to go through all the festival-related articles and generalize them, but I never get around to it. Maybe this will be the year I finally do that. Thanks for taking care of a good bunch of them already! —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 23:39, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, some of them didn't even have 2008, let alone 2009. I understand why it was done in the first place, though, because there was never any guarantee that they would be the same skills year after year. But after 4 years (not to mention Wintersday in July), I think it's pretty safe to make some assumptions. As for doing all of the festivals... even the quests? The items? The NPCs? That's a daunting task. --Macros 06:28, January 3, 2010 (UTC)
Thus why I haven't done it yet. ^^; —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 15:23, January 3, 2010 (UTC)
Well, I finally did it. Thanks for catching the categories I missed there at the end - I'm surprised I didn't make more mistakes than that on the Canthan New Year stuff. And I'm very surprised that no one has commented on my utter obliteration of RC today. Oh well, just another day's work for the bot-man. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 04:56, January 24, 2010 (UTC)

Congratulations and a job well done; You ruined RC.. --- VipermagiSig.JPG -- (contribs) (talk) 13:28, January 24, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Viper's summary ("What happened to Bot Ishmael?"), I considered doing it on my bot account, but since I was actually editing the articles in addition to changing the categories, and I didn't know ahead of time which articles would need to be edited, I felt it didn't really qualify as a bot job. I could've restricted the work to changing categories and done it on the bot, then gone back through and edited the articles that needed it on my main, but that would've been very inefficient and would've added two edits to most of the articles' histories instead of just one. Yes, I spammed RC for four hours, but in the long run, a single edit is better.
Re: Viper's HTML comment, I can probably do that over the next week, before I start my job. It'll be a javascript function (or two) that you'll have to install to your .js file - I wouldn't feel confident putting it in the common.js. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 15:55, January 24, 2010 (UTC)


Hey Macros.

Sorry to bother you, but could you please explain what you mean here? afaik Signet of Binding should allow you to take his spirits (havn't tested) but... what got "fixed"? A F K sig 2.jpg A F K When Needed 14:48, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

Duncan doesn't actually have any spirits, and the level 24 ones surrounding him (along with all other "monster" spirits such as Spirit of The Mists) can no longer be stolen with Signet of Binding. For a couple days after Signet of Binding was changed, you could, but Anet fixed it pretty quick. --Macros 14:54, January 3, 2010 (UTC)
Ah right, I knew he didn't cast them himself, but I wasn't aware that you could no longer steal them.

Shadow Form[]

Sorry about that. I didn't know it wasn't tested thoroughly yet. Also, I have no idea how I reverted that. I didn't event touch the revert button, I just pressed edit and copy pasted that note :S Must be wikia being weird again or something.--TalkpageEl_Nazgir 17:44, March 15, 2010 (UTC)

Heh, it's ok. I also have no idea what the difference is between "damage reduction" and "base damage reduction," but that wouldn't fit in the edit summary. I might test it later if no one else does first. Which means asking one of my guildies to kill me repeatedly with the catapult on the Isle of the Nameless. They shouldn't mind too much. --Macros 18:29, March 15, 2010 (UTC)
I'm guessing base dmg reduction reduces damage before any other source like armor or prot skills, while the SoA type of dmg reduction goes last.--TalkpageEl_Nazgir 21:27, March 15, 2010 (UTC)
Cool note removal bro. Did you test disenchantment on shadow form before you removed my note? Because it looked to me like you blatantly disregarded AGF. 03:36, March 16, 2010 (UTC)

I'm trying to beat Fyren for the largest talkpage ever. The only thing that saved the wiki from that monstrosity was divine intervention. I've figured out Fyren's mistakes, and have formulated a plan to make sure that doesn't happen to me. By flying under the radar (i.e., no spam pyramids), I should be able to avoid notice until it's too late. By then, my talkpage will have blocked the tubes, and I will be in control.
