Bow Chart[edit source]

Nice work. It would help a lot if you actually put in the firing rate of those bows instead of saying "if it fires as many shots as a flat bow it's flat if it fires as many shots as a long bow it's long" post the actual numbers as well. Just a suggestion. Thanks. --Karlos 07:07, 18 November 2005 (UTC)

I felt the comparision helps eliminate semi-systematic errors on the user side, due to reaction timing and stuff. I guess a 30-sec interval is supposed to spread that out so it becomes insignificant... -PanSola 07:31, 18 November 2005 (UTC)
I didn't know what semi-systematic meant but I figured it was a really good word for describing why I did it. Then I looked it up, you just made that word up didn't you PanSola :Þ I did it like that because people's timing method might be different, ie you could time starting from when the first arrow is fired and count the number of times an arrow is launched. Or you could start timing when the character first puts an arrow into the bow and the count the number of times the arrow his the target creature. But it doesn't matter how it's timed as long as it's consistant between each bow and 30 seconds should be long enough to differentiate between the bow types.
Well, "semi-systematic" means halfway systematic... And system implies consistency. The same human will tend to err in a consistent way, but not exactly in the same way, thus the errors are only "semi" systematic, as opposed to fully systematic. So, essentially how you explained it, with the additional attention that it's a human, not machine (whose error can be considered fully systematic), doing it. --PanSola 12:34, 18 November 2005 (UTC)
It's a good suggestion though Karlos because the person may not have the appropriate bows to test with but it would still allow them to figure out what type it is. I'll mull on that for a little longer. --Xasxas256 11:54, 18 November 2005 (UTC)

Thats a very nice chart! I had know idea about anything but short and long bows :)

On the Forgerunner, it's a longbow, "feathered" longbows as they're know, the prestige skin. — Skuld 08:23, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

Talk about late, but nonetheless, isn't the chart flipped vertically? I mean, if you were using the "mystery bow", and then switched to a horn bow or whatever is in the medium range; if you had to run towards the monster, that would mean that the "mstery bow" had a range LONGER than a horn/composite/whatever bow, right? I'm pretty sure that would mean it's a long bow. (in otherwords "Yes, it's a long bow (or whatever else has that range, flatbow I think? I've been out of the game a while)" or "no" not "yes" and then "no it's a long bow or et. al.") Or am I the one who is backwards? Evan The Cursed (Talk) 17:47, 5 June 2006 (CDT)

Hey, mind if I delete the older versions of the bow chart, or is there some historical value to them? --Rainith 00:15, 3 July 2006 (CDT)
No go ahead, I've saved them to my HDD now and I can't think of why I'd need the old ones anyway. They're very small, around 10KB each but hey every bit helps ;) --Xasxas256 00:19, 3 July 2006 (CDT)
Ok, the older revisions are gone. They are small, but the thought that we're starting to run out of space is very disturbing to me. If in your travels around the wiki you see some image file that is currently being used, but has lots of old versions, leave me a note or stick a delete tag in its talk page, with the note that only the old versions should be deleted (if one of the older versions isn't a better pic than the current one of course). Thanks for your help. =) --Rainith 19:53, 3 July 2006 (CDT)
Those old pics are one of the few examples of where using a GIF file is actually useful and good quality despite GuildWiki:Image use policy ;) I was kinda hoping you'd say something about my awesome new user page layout but alas no :( But I think user pages are pretty low priority for you, I think yours has been vandalised more frequently then you've edited it in the last few months! :P --Xasxas256 23:45, 3 July 2006 (CDT)
GIFs can work fine if you keep them to a few colors like that and not too complex in design. And that bow chart is of great use and should be kept so that any new bows that are introduced in new expansions can be tested accordingly. :) --Rainith 00:00, 4 July 2006 (CDT)
Why thank you kind sir, did you strikeout the removing images text because we have seemt to have 90GB (or so) free? Well the older version of Image:Interface menu.jpg can be deleted if you're still on a crusade...I quite like the idea of travelling around the wiki too, you know all wide eyed in wonder at the marvels that the GuildWiki can offer, I'm not sure that it's quite like that for me, but the idea is good! ;) --Xasxas256 00:56, 4 July 2006 (CDT)
I'm even later than Evan, but I think he's correct in saying the chart is in error. Since the old versions probably just got deleted, I can't check to see if they were correct. If I had to guess, I'd say you reworked/rearranged the logic at some point but made a mistake updating the image to match. -- 01:31, 4 July 2006 (CDT)

To Do section[edit source]

I really should add some info about choosing a secondary class on it like I said on Talk:Roleplaying character creation using User:Xasxas256/Secondary Profession Guide

Update troubles[edit source]

Hehe, looks like we finally got it sorted out with today's update, did we? I wasn't aware you were already updating the updates page until I got an edit conflict. :) Yes, time zones... always check the official page for dates and such... --Eightyfour-onesevenfive 20:13, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

Ra, Rt, etc.[edit source]

Hey, just noticed the developments since last night. I think you at taking it too personally. You are valuable, but that doesn't mean that other users won't ruthlessly edit your works. This is both the beauty and the curse of wikis, but more beauty than curse, I think. I certainly didn't mean any affront to you personally and sorry if anything I wrote came across that way. F G 23:24, 6 April 2006 (CDT)

Problem was that nobody edited the article, people just jumped on the talk page and rubbished it. As I said on Talk:Ri I'd had a bad day, thought I'd do something useful by doing a few GuildWiki edits, I came home cold and wet to a couple of people telling me how useless those two articles.
Look I'm fine now and it wasn't a total loss, I got to have a discussion with Karlos re communism and stuff which was interesting. I'm in a much better mood now, I got a bit unhappy earlier but I didn't swear at anyone or anything. I think I described it as: I just generally became kinda bitter and pissed off at the world and threw in the towel. I mean I didn't threaten to quit the GuildWiki or anything. I just didn't let it slide like I should have, Karlos and I were talking about Ghandi before, I'm just not that calm, I do get pissed off occasionally! (Although this is probably the first time on the GuildWiki.)
However that said, I don't know how: If you are advocating for Wa, you might as well be advocating for the slaughter of infants to harvest their organs. And I have just one question for you. Why do you hate babies? rates in my book, on an issue that has obviously become a bit more charged than it should be, that's probably fanning the flames a little unncessarily. Still by the time I got to reading that I was back in a happy enough mood and it didn't worry me too much. But it doesn't directly address why you disagree, for my mind it's just a joke that stirs people up. Anyway thanks for dropping us a line and clearing the air. --Xasxas256 23:43, 6 April 2006 (CDT)
That line about babies was mostly a joke, of course. Was it not obvious? F G 23:50, 6 April 2006 (CDT)

Savage Slash in the Me/W Spell Slasher[edit source]

Okay, now I'm paranoid... wish I had the time to go double-check all the prebuilds for correctness. Sigh. --130.58 03:07, 12 April 2006 (CDT)

That was a quick reply! Well I wish I had a PvP slot so I could check it myself :P I'll have to wait until EB gives me a call and tells me my copy of Factions is in before I can test it here. I think this one is probably an exception, it looked totally different to the other premades before I got to it today...but sorry I can't confirm or deny that your paranoia is well founded :P --Xasxas256 03:15, 12 April 2006 (CDT)

Augury Rock to Thirsty River discussion[edit source]

I told you I'd harrass you about some more articles with a cleaup tag. With Augury Rock to Thirsty River I think you were the creator and it had a cleanup tag on it. I did some extensive editing to it but I was a bit rushed cos I was about to knock off work :) But it looks like you've picked up the ball and started making improvements. Previously it just wasn't appropriately written, the writing style was too informal. Also it mentioned being in a group and fighting this and that but also said things about running. I tried make it more formal and take out the fightning references, it's not a hard journey to fight from Augury Rock to Thirsty River but I suppose the run isn't totally straight forward. Still you can change however you like, I'm not fussed and you'll probably know better than me what the original author's intentions were. :) But the thing did look like a good (bad?) example of how wikis can result in articles being non cohesive and looking like it's been written by different people. --Xasxas256 03:23, 12 April 2006 (CDT)

Xeeron added the cleanup, I've never laid a hand on that page! Skuld Monk 03:25, 12 April 2006 (CDT)
I was the creator and I did the recent edits. This and other information you can easily glean from the page's history. I completely and adamantly oppose making it a running-only article. — Stabber (talk) 03:26, 12 April 2006 (CDT)
Geez no need to pick a shotgun and start waiving it at me from your rocking chair! I already said you can change it to read however you like in regards to the article describing running/fighting or both, because you'd know better than me. There's no opposing anything if there's no opposition. Do what you like, today I just simply decided to cleanup some of the articles that were cleanup tagged, some of them had been tagged quite a while ago, some of them were indeed pretty ordinary. This article just simply wasn't written well, it was informal and looked thrown together by multiple editors. So I think it reads better now but please, there's no need to completely and adamantly oppose anything, I'm not going to revert any edit that adds the fighting info back in (and even take out the running info too, doesn't worry me, I was just trying to improve the writing). --Xasxas256 03:35, 12 April 2006 (CDT)
I am surprised that you are lecturing me about "poorly written" articles, and I question your judgement about the quality of the text. Informal it may have been (hey, it's a wiki, not an encyclopedia the last time I checked!), but it was thrown together by me, a single person, not a cacophony of editors. You may consider reading some of the related articles, such as Augury Rock to Elona Reach, to see why these guides mention both fighting and running. — Stabber (talk) 03:45, 12 April 2006 (CDT)
Look it was flagged for a cleaup so I did my best to clean it up. Ok I'll start with the running/fighting thing first:
I don't know how many times I can say it I don't care, at all, if it talks about running, fighting or both why do you keep bring it it up!?!?!? I've already said that you were the creator and YOU know best what the intention of this article was, I just tried to improve it because it was flagged. You're trying to get me to argue about something that I'm not fussed about, when I initially brought this up I said:

"Also it mentioned being in a group and fighting this and that but also said things about running. I tried make it more formal and take out the fightning references, it's not a hard journey to fight from Augury Rock to Thirsty River but I suppose the run isn't totally straight forward. Still you can change however you like, I'm not fussed and you'll probably know better than me what the original author's intentions were. :)"

I explained why I took out the fighting references but also said that you can change it, this was just how I saw the article but because you're the creator, I defer to you on this one. When Xeeron flagged it for clean up he/she said "(added cat. added cleanup: Language. This should differenciate between running and group travel (fighting) like the other guides)" So I went with running, if you don't like that decision, that's fine, you're the creator, change it back, there's no problem, you don't need to argue why, just do it!
Ok onto the language aspect, Xeeron said the language needed improvement, I agreed, so I tried to improve it as I saw fit. To me that article was written far more informally than the average article on the GuildWiki, if you disagree that's fine. But GuildWiki:We_are_not_Wikipedia makes no mention of the writing style used here and Augury Rock to Elona Reach was also written by you, it's not really an example of how this particular wiki is very informal. That said however (and this makes it a bit more interesting :P )I don't have any problems with the language used in Augury Rock to Elona Reach, to me it's neither particularly formal or informal, it's pretty neutral and fine in my book.
Basically I improved the language and decided to make it clearer as to whether or not the article concerned running or fighting, because that was what was requested in the cleanup --Xasxas256 04:25, 12 April 2006 (CDT)
Maybe I'll just append an addition, Stabber, there's nothing to be discussed/argued about in regards to putting the fighting info back in so we don't have to worry about that. I probably shouldn't have said "poorly written", not a good choice of words, I just didn't like how informal it was. But if your intention is to make it look like Augury Rock to Elona Reach, that sounds good too me. You've obviously spent some time creating these pages and their maps, so I don't mean to bag you, but I perceive Augury Rock to Elona Reach to read better than Augury Rock to Thirsty River did (before today). But if they were to look similar, I'd be a happy man.--Xasxas256 04:33, 12 April 2006 (CDT)
Ugh all the trouble caused by one small innocent edit by me. What I was thinking about when I said "This should differenciate between running and group travel (fighting) like the other guides" was that all the other guides have 2 subsections: One for running and one for fighting. That would be nice to have in this guide as well. --Xeeron 05:11, 12 April 2006 (CDT)

Re: Note to self on your main page[edit source]

That's a valuable note to remember! --Barek 09:46, 18 April 2006 (CDT)

Are you mocking my note? Don't make me use it on you Barek!!!! It's the only thing more powerful than double echo meteor showers isn't it? I must admit that am a little disappointed that I've got one of those commonly seen "notes to self" sections, my user page isn't unique anymore :( --Xasxas256 21:57, 18 April 2006 (CDT)

Reply to question about Drago's Flatbow and Victo's Battle Axe: Yes, they have been upgraded to 20/20 sundering, ONLY on ones that have dropped after the major update, which included the increase of max sundering mods to 20/20..I do not have a picture as I have yet to acquire said items (bow's selling for 100k..axe 70k at this time, and tombs/SF runs are few and far between) also not great at the wiki thing..but ask around ingame, I am sure you'll find this to be fact..on a random note, I do have screenshots of a monstrous eye dropping off a spined aloe, unfortunately its apparently not a usable file time on wiki (bitmap)

Calintz Lockhart, IGN is the same. also known as Alex Litvin, Azel Yurameshi Date umm..April 28th? and is it the year 2006 or I apologize if I am doing something wrong by posting it here, this just seems to me to be where to post replys to messages?

No probs, sorry for the mix up, I saw your edit at work so I couldn't check it in game. When I'm on the GuildWiki at work, usually I'm just fixing typos and vandalism (unfortunately I guess but I have a lot of respect for this site and its contributors so I don't mind) and so that's why I came to that conclusion. Still no harm done and yes this is the right place to bring up an something like this (you could also use the articles talk page but it's much more likely to be noticed by the person in question on their talk page). If you want a bit more info on editing this wiki, you can find some stuff on my talk page (for example we sign our talk page comments with ~~~~ to automatically append your username and the date). Hmmmm I might have to go back to B/P Tombs faming...!--Xasxas256 13:02, 28 April 2006 (CDT)

'kay good to know we're on the same page here ;) also good to know people are actively protecting the site against people who would seek to harm it. On the b/p tombs farming thing..MM nerf ftl, lol..still doable but that coupled with factions release= pain in the rear lets see if the autosign works edit: ya works..also updated Bludgeoner's page to reflect the new stats. Calintz Lockhart 21:01, 28 April 2006 (CDT)

Quests[edit source]

Actually you should check GuildWiki:Style and formatting/Quests the completion dialogue should be in the quests, along with any intermediate dialogue. --Rainith 20:13, 30 April 2006 (CDT)

Hmmmm I remember reading ages ago on some talk page someone saying it'd be nice to have the completion and intermediate dialogue but I don't remember a final answer being given. There's still only very very few quests that have more than the initial dialog at the moment but thanks for pointing me to that page. I'll add to it that we use <name> to indicate that a NPC is referring to your name in the quest dialog because that seems to be largely what we've used in the past.
On another note if you look at say The Ancient Forest you'll see the category is written as: [[Category:Factions quests|Ancient Forest, The]] (actually you're the person whose done it on that page). Is that how it's supposed to be? GuildWiki:Style and formatting/Quests doesn't seem to suggest that... Tell me which is supposed to be correct (and update Ancient Forest, The if need be, I'm tidying up the factions quests at the moment, I'll change all the categories along the way if need be.) --Xasxas256 20:31, 30 April 2006 (CDT)
Putting the category that way just makes it so that in the category listing the quest is listed in the A's for Ancient as opposed to the T's for The. That should be done for pretty much all categories if the name of the article begins with The, A, or An (those are the ones that I can think of off the top of my head anyway). That does not need to be done for all category entries, i.e. the quest Blood And Smoke should just have [[Category:Prophecies quests]] in it and not [[Category:Prophecies quests|Blood and Smoke]]. So in answer to your question, that should really go on the main GuildWiki:Style and formatting page. --Rainith 20:40, 30 April 2006 (CDT)
I can't help but notice that half an hour has passed and there's no changes to GuildWiki:Style and formatting, was the above a call for me to "get to work!!" or more of a whimsical sigh that it should be there. Or something else again?
According to GuildWiki:Administrators it says: "84.175, Karlos, Rainith and PanSola are on the wiki daily to fight vandalism, block users, delete pages, and respond to general user requests." So why don't YOU get to work and do it! :P Don't make my WikiStress go up!!! (Actually in all honesty I'm not sure that I'm supposed to change stuff on GuildWiki:Style and formatting, without some massive discussion but you with your fancy admin powers can do what you like hey? :P :P) --Xasxas256 21:27, 30 April 2006 (CDT)
Actually it was just a general observation. It was neither a request for you to do it, nor a statement that I would. You must take responsiblity for your own WikiStress, no one else can do that for you. :) --Rainith 21:52, 30 April 2006 (CDT)
My WikiStress is just like everything else on this wiki, it has many contributors, some better than others!! Still on my travels through [[Category:Factions quests I've just come across a well written one that I didn't have to tidy up at all, A New Escort which was created by you. Can't say much about the one before though...Naga Oil, should fire the person who did that :P --Xasxas256 22:09, 30 April 2006 (CDT)

Happy Birthday[edit source]

Come back when you are done partying. --Xeeron 04:31, 8 May 2006 (CDT)

Thanks Xeeron, means a lot to me, maybe more than it should. --Xasxas256 04:56, 8 May 2006 (CDT)
Happy B-Day. Not sure why you are leaving (have not been following the wiki too closely since Factions came out), but don't be a stranger. :) --Karlos 06:28, 8 May 2006 (CDT)
Happy Birthday, as a fellow May-born person (it's my 21st Birthday tomorrow), I hope your break is relaxing --Jamie 06:32, 8 May 2006 (CDT)
Thanks Jamie, have more fun on your 21st than I did today. You're user page says you're a Pom, good luck with that :P Nah seriously the next Ashes series should be a awesome! In regards to tomorrow, make sure you drink plenty of Foster's! --Xasxas256 07:59, 8 May 2006 (CDT)
Why I'm leaving? Well there doesn't seem to be enought sense of community here. We joke around a little bit on talk pages but it's often misconstrued as taking the piss (we need some emote, pic etc. to indicate a comment made in jest). I just don't seem to get as much out of the GuildWiki as I used to. I've lost the desire to keep editing.
For example, there's not much back patting here for a job well done. We don't have any awards. For a long time I was kept going by a desire to learn how to operate a wiki and a sense doing something worthwhile but that's not enough now. I don't feel as though the GuildWiki "needs" me, it will operate exactly the same regardsless of my presence or lack thereof. This wouldn't be that much of a problem if I had a sense of real belonging here but I just don't feel it anymore.
A case in point, when Xeeron went on wikibreak, I couldn't believe that nobody else passed on their regards. I'm not saying for a second that I'm the model citizen of goodwill, I'm saying there's no strong culture of it. I don't know if it was there before but has been lost or if it's still there but I'm just not feeling it or if it's never been there. I'm not slagging any individual off, like I said I think it's a cultural thing here which has also been ingrained into me. If you're still enjoying your time here don't let me be a wet blanket and spoil your fun, I'm just being honest about the way I personally feel. --Xasxas256 07:59, 8 May 2006 (CDT)
Wow, I just found out now that Zeeron tooka break from April 18th to the 29th. :) Shows you what I know. :) We do need to build a stronger community, suggestions are welcome. I personally don't fancy awards much, but mabye light-hearted contasts and awards in those contests. For example, a contest for "Most significant minor edit" to see who abuses the "m" edits the most (I'd be right at the top), a contest for "What will the third campaign be about"? stuff like that, fun and at the same time does not propagate boasting and elitism. Last thing we need is a bunch of R9 contributors flashing their kitties at us. :) --Karlos 15:59, 9 May 2006 (CDT)
Well you could start by spelling Xeeron's name right :P Yeah on a simillar theame there's been a bit of talk recently about how many contributions a user has made and how "important" their contributions are which I don't like. I just think that having a Guild Wars Wiki vs a forum, if I'd posted 500 times on a forum I would have had plenty of jokes, known a fair bit about the other regulars and when I log on for the day, I'd feel like I'm checking in on the GuildForum community. Here...not so much. Maybe we need a [[GuildWiki:Requests for fun]] page or something! --Xasxas256 12:06, 10 May 2006 (CDT)

Insert Heading Here[edit source]

Wow I finally get a gig on Gem's user page, pity I've removed most of the content off my page now. I guess you can remove the link to my page now mate and I don't know how much longer I'll continue here anyway. This site has been my favourite waste of time for a while now and mean that in a very fond and affectionate way but I don't seem to be deriving much enjoyment from being here any more. Anyway thanks for the memories guys and girls. There's no big parting statement here from me, quite the opposite actually, I'm a bit sad writing this, I'd like it very much if I could rekindle my passion for GuildWiki editing but until then bonsoir. --Xasxas256 06:23, 8 May 2006 (CDT)

I feel empty. You just made me realise one thing. I have stopped enjoying my time in the wiki too. I don't think the reason is the childish fighting going on, but the fact that everyone is contributing Factions stuff when I don't really play Factions a lot yet. However, I will stay here and try to clean up the Prophecies stuff which others ignore and try to enjoy my time by listening music.
Enough of myself. Enjoy your time whatever you end up doing. It was nice to be a fellowcontributor with you! --Gem Gem 08:04, 8 May 2006 (CDT)
By the way. I didn't remove the link, I just changed it to point to the good old version. Have fun! --Gem Gem 08:12, 8 May 2006 (CDT)

I'm sorry you're leaving, good luck for the future Skuld Monk 08:05, 8 May 2006 (CDT)

Jamie says "Relax!"[edit source]

You can do it! (last time I checked it wasn't against GuildWiki policies) you remind me of my friend Peter... always so stressed. --Jamie 09:25, 9 May 2006 (CDT)

What?[edit source]

Why keep it hidden? Do you think I would continue my new bad habit by copying those loooovely link boxes? I wouldn't dare. *ctrl-c, ctrl-v* ;) --Gem Gem 11:59, 10 May 2006 (CDT)

Ha ha no you'd copy them, then make them look good and put me to shame! Actually I'm more worried about spending time on making bits of my user page look good is truely joining the dark side. So tell me, what's it like over there? :P --Xasxas256 12:09, 10 May 2006 (CDT)
Pretty stressing actually, it's not easy you know. Those copycats and stuff... ok , you probably don't. ;P --Gem Gem 12:21, 10 May 2006 (CDT)

Wikistress?[edit source]

Is your wikistress still at that level? I hope not and you definitely don't seem too stressed to me. Maby mu fun section really is a great place to hang out. --Gem Gem 07:51, 11 May 2006 (CDT)

Btw, do you want to upload new versions of the wikistress images, with transparent backgrounds? (need to be .png then) They look ugly everywhere on my page, I just can't find a good spot for one. I could do it too if you don't want to. --Gem Gem 08:12, 11 May 2006 (CDT)
You're welcome to, I've actually done a really quick edit of the No Pants one (the colour looked too similar to Image:Wikistress3D_1_v3.jpg, you can see the original no pants here). But because I have no colour or rounded corners (I don't know why I'm mentioning rounded corners but I'm sure they're partly to blame!)on my user page, I didn't think about transperancy. I'm off to bed so I won't have time now anyway, knock yourself out, here's to hoping you start with the No Pants stress level! --Xasxas256 08:20, 11 May 2006 (CDT)
w00t you've got no pants!...on your user page ;) I've cleaned that image up because the blue text was awful before. --Xasxas256 08:36, 11 May 2006 (CDT)
Welcome to the club! --User:Gem 09:34, 15 May 2006 (CDT)
I actually went to post a note on your talk page with the good news but you beat me to it! You're watching my pants very closely indeed Gem! But I'm ok with that now, how can anyone with no pants be self conscious!--Xasxas256 09:43, 15 May 2006 (CDT)
I am beginning to feel a boit weird as I have more users in my watchlist than normal pages. Time to visit the shrink... --User:Gem 09:45, 15 May 2006 (CDT)
Well if you find a good one can you get me a referral? My current one clearly isn't helping at all! Nah in all seriousness, user's talk pages are the lifeblood of the wiki, any sort of decent size issues will get escalated to somebodies talk page. It's a good way of keeping track of both what's going on and how many layers of clothing people are wearing.--Xasxas256 10:14, 15 May 2006 (CDT)

Spellings[edit source]

Not to add to your wikistress, but the game uses the American spellings of words like Enroll and Rumor. (At least in some cases it does, they are wonderfully inconsistant at times.) --Rainith 03:23, 13 May 2006 (CDT)

Damn sorry about that, I normally use a text editor with the language set to American English because Guild Wars uses it. But today I'm not on my normal PC and I didn't think of it. I'll set the language to Yank English now, thanks for picking that up for me. --Xasxas256 03:31, 13 May 2006 (CDT)
np - also check out the resolution in Talk:Seek out Brother Tosai, more of the fun inconsistancies. :( --Rainith 03:34, 13 May 2006 (CDT)
That is truly terrible, I was actually on the way to do that quest myself because it seemed very odd to me. Oh well GuildWiki editing would just be too simple were it not for things like that! --Xasxas256 03:37, 13 May 2006 (CDT)
Heh, I was just about on my way to bed (1:30am here) when I saw your edit. My first thought was, "Crap! How did I miss that when I caught the 'Seek Out Headmaster...' quests?" I had to take a level 10 character through the prerequsite for this quest to check it out. :) Oh well, off to bed now. --Rainith 03:40, 13 May 2006 (CDT)

Deleting builds[edit source]

If there are any builds in the to be delete category that you feel are worth keeping, please put your name on the talk page, I will definitly check those tomorrow and remove the delete tag if enough people vouch by then. --Xeeron 06:49, 13 May 2006 (CDT)

"I didnt see your vote on many builds", you know why? Because I've become like PanSola, I don't seem to play the game anymore, I just edit the guildwiki. I logged on today, but only so I could add some images of some's a little sad really. Anyway I think it's just a "bloke" thing, some of those builds are probably crud but like any "bloke" I hate the idea of throwing them out, I could use that crappy build/broken monitor at any time in the future! --Xasxas256 06:56, 13 May 2006 (CDT)
Ok I finished moving them. You might want to read about Bishops proposal as well. --Xeeron 07:34, 13 May 2006 (CDT)

GWiki comic[edit source]

Are you still up to it? If yes, I'll make you the 'script' for the first strip soon. :) --User:Gem 03:49, 16 May 2006 (CDT)

I've given this like a lot of thought, like quite a lot. The problem is that I don't know if I'll be do it justice. There's a few things holding me back, firstly I have very little confidence in my own ability to draw these days. Secondly I'd have to do it at work, I don't know how much time it would take up and how busy I am at work varies greatly from day to day, I may not always have the time to do it. I do want to do this, it sounds like a really good fun project but I also want to do it properly. The other thing I'm thinking about doing is getting a friend to do it which probably wouldn't make much difference to you (as to who does the actual drawing is behind the scenes, I'd just have to give him/her credit I suppose). When you start talking about scripts that sounds serious, I don't want to see you put in a whole lot of work then have me back out. Could you give me a couple more days so I can work out if I'm going to take it on board and then if I am going to; the best way for me to go about it? Thanks. --Xasxas256 21:05, 16 May 2006 (CDT)
Don't take it too seriously. I am not doing anything great and magnificent, just tossing up a few ideas and making a 3-5 box long strip 'script'. A simple idea put in words and possibly a horrible sketch which you/whoever can use as the basis for the real drawings. I am not putting hours and hours to this, so don't worry. If you do not want to do this, its ok and I'll try to find someone else. :) --User:Gem 04:46, 17 May 2006 (CDT)
Sorry for taking so long to get back to you Gem, I actually replied to this a couple of days ago but I think it was when the GuildWiki was having problems and my reply obviously wasn't saved. I've given it quite a bit of thought over the last week and I've decided that I cannot take this up largely because of time. I've looked at how busy I am for the past week and I don't think it would do either of us any good for me to take up this project. I'm really sorry Gem, I would have loved to have worked on this but I hope you'll still go ahead with it and I'm sure it'll be really awesome. --Xasxas256 22:27, 24 May 2006 (CDT)
If anyone is reading this and has some kind of drawing skills you might be interested in this, Gem and I were thinking of doing a comic for the GuildWiki, if you're interested you should definately drop Gem a line because I'd love to see this get off the ground. --Xasxas256 22:29, 24 May 2006 (CDT)
Although Karlos and Xas are able to do stuff, more people area always welcome. We could change the style now and then. --Gem-icon-sm.png 14:49, 27 May 2006 (CDT)

Revert war[edit source]

I'm slightly dissapointed by your comment, "That said 1RV makes sense and I can see that Rainith is starting to get involved in an revert war as I write this." as I did no such thing. I made one edit to a page, and then one rever when my edit was reverted, then I left the page alone. I was not about to revert it a second time, and it seemed obvious by the user's comment that english is not his native language, and I wanted to give him time to comprehend what people were posting on his talk page.

That said, I didn't take the comment personally and I certainly hope that my comments here have caused no offense as that was not my intent at all. Even though you and I have had one or two disagreements recently, I have a lot of respect for you from what I know about you based on your work here. And mostly I wanted to make sure that there were no issues between the two of us here. Anyway, it is late for me, and I need to get up in... oh, less than 8 hours to go to work, so don't think that I'm ignoring you if I don't respond to any comments until tomorrow (or later today for you maybe, you're in Austrailia right?). --Rainith 23:08, 16 May 2006 (CDT)

When I said revert war, I didn't mean you were in the wrong, Watterly was the one who reverted a revert. So in other words you did nothing wrong whatsoever but you were "involved" in the war because it was your revert that was wrongly rereverted. I think that after we had a disagreement about something (I think it was regarding appropriate things on user pages issue) we've basically forgotten about it which is excellent. Seriously I know it's a small thing but being able to just read a comment, respond to it and not bear a grudge against someone is an incredibly powerful skill to have for a wiki editor.
Sorry about saying that you got into the war without adequately explaining what I meant. It was just that even though those border images annoy me a lot, I didn't want to revert the edit because I knew Watterly would just revert again. It seemed pointless so I went to PanSola. I just wanted to express my frustration that whoever tried to revert the article so it didn't have those bordered pictures, would get caught up and there's no way of taking them down. Revert once and I was sure Watterly would revert again. Once that's happened none of us can revert again and we're stuck with articles with those boarded picture. It sucks, like I said the good guys who actually follow policy and do the right thing and read their talk page (Skuld's comment was put on Watterly's talk page days ago) have their hands tied and the article is left in the wrong state. Thanks for the note about you going to bed, no probs, yep I'm in Australia and it's 2:22pm as I write this. Hope we can clear this up quickly mate. --Xasxas256 23:23, 16 May 2006 (CDT)
No worries then mate. :) I'm cool, you're cool, everything is cool.
BTW - I'm trying to start up a little discussion about the GuildWiki:Image use policy by creating a Draft and posting on the GuildWiki talk:Image use policy page. Take a look and see if you agree. Of course after I went to bed last night I got to thinking up stuff that I had left out, so I'll be adding some more to my draft when I get home from work. But I'd like to get a dialogue going with people about this so we can try to get some sort of policy in place. --Rainith 16:07, 17 May 2006 (CDT)

Guardsman Zingpah[edit source]

Added the screenshot you requested for :) ---- Cliff 24 May 2006

Awesome, I was so annoyed when I realised you couldn't just walk up to him from Kaineng Center. That day I created articles for most of the NPCs there, added their dialog and a screenshot etc and by the end it was complete except I hadn't filled in all the armor types for the armor crafters and I was missing just one screenshot for him. Thanks so much for doing that, the only thing is, and I'm sure you're not going to be happy when you hear that you've got the green circle/green text on him which we try not to get on our GuildWiki pics here (none of the other Kaineng Center NPCs have it). If you could take it again with him unslected (select yourself or something) that'd be great but I don't know how hard it is to get up there, don't spend ages on it. Thanks a lot though, the green is trivial and I'm pumped about getting "complete" pages for the Kaineng Center NPCs, you even did the dialogue too which is great! --Xasxas256 21:02, 23 May 2006 (CDT)
I'm glad someone else remembers that, the green circle thing. Do you remember where it is stated? I was trying to tell someone else that a few weeks ago, and I couldn't find it for the life of me. --Rainith 21:08, 23 May 2006 (CDT)
Sorry I forgot about this but saw you back online which reminded me, sorry I'm not sure where I saw it written. --Xasxas256 22:13, 24 May 2006 (CDT)

Quick Thanks[edit source]

Wanted to drop a note to say that I ran across your page and it has been very helpfull with regards to syntex for my page (Valen). I hope you do not mind me borrowing some of your formatting. Again thanks and nice page. --Valen 22:45, 28 May 2006 (CDT)

You've given credit on your user page so that's fine, no problems. You won't win any style awards using my page for inspiration though ;) --Xasxas256 09:10, 29 May 2006 (CDT)
I actually like his user page and it might make it to my ~List Of Cool User Pages (also known as 'the Gems list' ;) ), but only original work is accepted. This one relies too heavily on the material from other (yours) user pages. --Gem-icon-sm.png 10:30, 29 May 2006 (CDT)

"Hey"[edit source]

*As you turn to look, Gares appears out of the shadows of the dark alley.*

Hehe. I'm always around. I step in, sometimes stumble in, to a discussion when I see misinformtaion being thrown about. Other than that, I usually don't have much to say...most of the time.

*Gares disappears back into the shadows as quietly as he appeared from them* :D

P.S. Might want to think of archiving some stuff. This page is getting kinda big. --Gares Redstorm 23:00, 5 June 2006 (CDT)

What I actually want to do is just remove the sections where I sound like an idiot and just leave the current discussions and the sections where somebody is thanking me/making me look good! That's probably a bit dishonest though itsn't it :P Seriously though, doing an archive of my old stuff is on my to do list, however creating a to do list is also on my to do list. Anyway thanks for dropping in, next time I'll try to start a sentence with the word "Seriously" and actually be serious for the whole sentence! Anyway I'm happy, I've now got you chatting on both my user page as well as yours, and suceeded in dragging you away from the far more useful activity of tidying up bosses while hiding behind some boxes in an alleyway! :D --Xasxas256 23:17, 5 June 2006 (CDT)

Car crashes[edit source]

I was just about to hit that save page button and post this on Template talk:Cleanup but I've decided to put it here, it doesn't really belong there. Also putting it here mean I can say thanks to Barek and Rainith for their support, I didn't feel like a damsel in distress or anything, probably mostly because I'm not having a gender crisis at the moment but your support was nice anyway. Ok onto the post:

Probably "We get edits all the time with people testing out their ability to edit (almost) all the pages." puts it best, thanks Rainith. I find it interesting watching human interaction on forums/wiki etc., it's strange how something like this gets heated. A lot of the time this would go more along the lines of both people being apologetic and having a laugh but some reason our Tor user went on the front foot. Maybe although I finished with a thanks, I was a bit abrupt with my first comment on this talk page. I think that even though our Tor user said "wtf rv" before that, it still hung in the balance at that point. But the next post which said "Unless the policy of this wiki is to assume bad faith" I think it was all over, that kind of sarcasm directed at a person meant this discussion was destined to degenerate at that point. I've always found something like this is like watching a car crash that you know is about to happen, once that sarcastic line was written, it was like the car had lost control at that point, even though it hadn't hit anything yet, you could tell it was about to crash.

Make of that what you will. --Xasxas256 22:53, 7 June 2006 (CDT)

I was thinking along the same lines. I could see exactly where it was going. Although, I didn't make any effort to avoid that destination as you attempted. What I find ammusing is that Tor anon would reference GuildWiki:You are valuable; but failed to recognize that the same right granted him to "question, suggest, and even change the GuildWiki" is also granted to others, so it's totally reasonable and in fact explicitly granted by that same policy to allow others to question his changes.
Oh well. What's done is done. The Wiki moves on. --- Barek (talk • contribs) - 23:02, 7 June 2006 (CDT)
Live and let live. You kept your cool in a discussion with a person that lost his. I was hoping he would have explained why he thought Template:Test was more efficient than Template:If-Then, but unfortunately it seems he temper got the best of him. Take it all in stride, stuff happens. You did the right thing in that scenario and that is all that matters. --Gares Redstorm 23:09, 7 June 2006 (CDT)

For your consideration[edit source]

Don't know if you're at all interested in this, but I'd appreciate your feedback here about this. --Rainith 00:42, 15 June 2006 (CDT)

No probs, I've taken a look over it and whacked a comment on. --Xasxas256 08:22, 15 June 2006 (CDT)

Sorry mate..[edit source]

I'm rooting for the Samba boys. Nothing personal against Kangaroos. :) --Karlos 06:28, 18 June 2006 (CDT)

No worries, although I must say though I was laughing my arse off watching Basil v Croatia, Ronaldo is just like Diego Maradona these days, a big fat guy who used to be good at soccer! Watch for Tim Cahill, the guy is a god amongst men! I may be eating my words in a few hours but for now, I'm happy that like the rest of the country, I've caught soccer fever! --Xasxas256 06:37, 18 June 2006 (CDT)
Tough break for the Socceroos, they tried. :) You guys are not as bad as you used to be. :) --Karlos 17:52, 18 June 2006 (CDT)
Yeah was disappointing to lose but we played really well and had plenty of excellent chances to equalise. Although Cahill was a bit quiet, I'm not sure if he even had a shot on goal, Lucas Neill was fantastic and it was good to see Emerton lifting a notch in this game. We're looking good to progress past the group stage, a win against Croatia will guarantee it and a draw will probably be enough. The only thing I'm unhappy about is someone let off a flare right next to me as I was watching, those things are really nasty, for the minute or so they're going you pretty much can't breathe! Work's gunna be great fun today, I had 1.5 hours of sleep last night! --Xasxas256 18:12, 18 June 2006 (CDT)
I only saw clips from the game here and there. Brazil looks ugly this year. I doubt they're going far with this mindset. Good luck with work and recovery from the noob ele who used Flare on you. :) --Karlos 18:21, 18 June 2006 (CDT)

Voting[edit source]

"I was sure I'd already voted plain text on this but I must have dreamed it. What a waste of a dream, I can do so much better than this!"

Hah must have been on one of your socketpuppet accounts. Keeping track on what you did is a hassle isnt it?

Thinking: Need to remember to log out of Xeeron and into Xasxas before replying. 2 accounts that start with X, how more obvious can it get? Hah all fools here ...

;-) Xeeron 09:33, 19 June 2006 (CDT)

Actually ages ago I thought it'd be a good idea to upload some simple emoticons, so when I'm writing something stupid, irrevrent, crazy or humorous I could whack an emoticon on (like everyone does on forums) but I later decided it wasn't a very wiki-like thing. So I saw the edit summary of; "wiki doesnt like emoticons ..." I thought maybe you could see into my head and I was living some sort of Fight Club type Pitt/Norton life! So this begs the question Xeeron, are you Dr Jeykell or Mr Hyde...? :P --Mr X 19:21, 19 June 2006 (CDT)
I am the cool good looking one who gets the woman ;-) --Xeeron 07:26, 20 June 2006 (CDT)

Looking for help[edit source]

I am looking to insert a If-Then-Else to change the background color based on the if conditional, i.e. Yes = light green background, No = light red background. I have been searching through the wiki for instructions or an example (that is simple and readable - found a couple in skill box templates, but they were too complex for me to understand). Would you or anyone who reads this know of a simple example of a If-Then-Else structure. As always, I am in your debt. --Valen 21:42, 19 June 2006 (CDT)

Heya there, I'm about to go out and play some soccer and then eat lunch and to be honest I'll probably knock off early after that. Just because I'm at work doesn't mean I have to do work! So if somebody want to give Valen a hand while I'm you know not working hard that'd be good, other wise I'll take a look at it in a few hours time when I get home and hopefully begin creating a minion army of GuildWiki contributors who are "in my debt." (they're much better than sockpuppets) :) While I'm out, it might be useful to say a bit more about exactly what you're trying to do, is it a bunch of checkboxs that you want to tick off or something else? Cheers mate. --Xasxas256 22:27, 19 June 2006 (CDT)
Given that Arrowsmith and PanSola have both posted some help on your userpage and you've not replied, I'm presuming that you're ok now with the changing background colors issue. --Xasxas256 18:47, 20 June 2006 (CDT)

My Sig[edit source]

Okay, Auron needs more help. When I put [[Image:Elit Druin.jpg|||My Talk]] between the name and the tag, it has the alt tag saying "my talk," but when I click, it redirects to the userpage. Any way to redirect to the talk page? -Auron My Talk 02:12, 20 June 2006 (CDT)

It seems ok to me, the alt tag is fine and when you click the image, it redirects to your talk page. It does both things perfectly fine to me (before and after the edits you've just made which add underscores, you don't need the underscores btw although in the case it makes little difference.) --Xasxas256 02:52, 20 June 2006 (CDT)
eh, Auron feels retarded. It worked fine for me, too, after I cleared my cache. Yea, I'll go back and pretty it up, now I know it works and all... Thanks again! -Auron My Talk 17:51, 20 June 2006 (CDT)
Hey no probs, much as I don't really worry about things like making my user page look nice, creating an awesome sig etc. it's just wikicode which I'm not too bad at writing so I'm happy to help out. --Xasxas256 18:27, 20 June 2006 (CDT)

so sorry[edit source]

I knew something did not seem right when I was typing in Edge of Extinction (spirit). I see that you have corrected the path of what I wrote. Thank you very much :-) - IxI Raiden IxI

Hey no problems, just one more thing, as Vortexsam just said: blanking a page doesn't delete something, just add a tag; blanking doesn't mean deleting; sysop or admin will take care of it. You need the {{delete|reason for deletion}} tag for the article to be deleted. (An admin checks that the article is safe to delete before removing it). Now you've learnt two things :) --Xasxas256 17:44, 22 June 2006 (CDT)

Thanks[edit source]

You helped me add my signature. I am not very good with Guildwiki, but I play Guild Wars alot more. I'm not sure if you play PvP or PvE, but my monk has conquered PvE and plays PvP too. If you want anything just Pm me - Odereroin Morlak Murphyp 13:09, 23 June 2006 (CDT)

Hey no probs, we're a pretty helpful bunch here on the GuildWiki but it's always nice to get a thanks tho ;) --Xasxas256 02:36, 24 June 2006 (CDT)

Congrats..[edit source]

Made it to the quarter finals.. Kangaroos can play soccer it seems. :) I think you have a good chance against Italy, those guys can't score easily... You guys can steal the match. --Karlos 03:20, 24 June 2006 (CDT)

Yeah I hope so, I watched the USA v Italy game and found the Azurri's performance pretty underwealming, the Yanks were unlucky not to pinch a win. Italy to me is a different team this world cup, they were formaly best known for shirts so tight they looked painted on, winging players and oscar winning driving ability. This time around they look older, (think Buffon, Totti and Del Piero) and lack the air of superiority. They certainly won't be easy but they're by no means unbeatable. I really like our chances, Kewell and Viduka still haven't hit top gear yet, if they do I reckon the game will be ours. (Unless we get another crazy ref, 3 yellow cards, what is that!) --Xasxas256 04:19, 24 June 2006 (CDT)

Petrify[edit source]

heh - you posted before me again, adding the tag. I really need that +1 typing speed rune; I wonder if there's a seller in Droks ... --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 09:32, 24 June 2006 (CDT)

I think PanSola farms typing speed runes, get Pan to hook you up with one. :P It's ok when your RFA finally goes through, I'll +del tag 'em, you delete 'em :) --Xasxas256 09:38, 24 June 2006 (CDT)

Credits[edit source]

FYI: I saw the post on your user page re: the gray boxes saying "please give some credit on your user page for it". Just for the record, I added credits on my user page the same day that I "borrowed" the boxes. Now you just need to chase down all the others using the boxes :-) --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 09:58, 24 June 2006 (CDT)

I've tried to remember to put a note on everyones talk page if I see anything copied form anyone without a note. It's really easy to see if anyone has copied these boxes, but I know there are a couple of users using them without credits. (Can't remember names, sorry) --Gem-icon-sm.png 11:04, 24 June 2006 (CDT)
Dang I forgot to reply to this earlier, thanks for that Gem, I do the same when I see someone using your layout, I think more recently here where they actually thought they'd done the right thing but the person they'd credited actually took the layout from your page :P :P All roads lead to your user page Gem ;) --Xasxas256 04:37, 25 June 2006 (CDT)
Oh my.... LOL. :D Your message on that users talk page was hilarious. I would never say I have the best user page out there. It's just the one which inspired many pages which inspired many pages which .... You get the idea. Thanks anyway. I was thinking of addding a hidden note in each of my boxes, something like <!--Stolen from User:Gem! Please credit!--> --Gem-icon-sm.png 02:58, 4 July 2006 (CDT)

Farming[edit source]

I'll post this here because maybe someone can help me, I've got some mates coming around in 1-2 hours and normally we just play through the campaign. However tonight we want to do some farming on account of us all feeling poor. There will be three of us, I've got an E, R, Mo, and N (all secondaries are unlocked). My first mate has a W/N and a N/Me and the other has a N/Mo and Mo/W. Forget Cantha, our Factions chars are all over the place. Does anybody know any decent 2-3 person farming spots (for gold)? I figure after the amount of help I've given on other's talk pages good karma says someone must know ;) Thanks. --Xasxas256 02:36, 25 June 2006 (CDT)

If you can get there, the most profitable would probably be the Underworld. One highly defensive Invincimonk (bring Spellbreaker), one SS-Necro and another Necro with Feast of Corruption, Desecrate and Defile Enchantments, if availible. The second necro isn't actually needed, but speeds things up even further. The basic concept would be this. --84-175 (talk) 02:47, 25 June 2006 (CDT)
I've played plenty of the game and have done a bit of everything but consider myself neither a hardcore PvE or Pvp-er. My only underworld experience was a disaster where instead of getting great drops from the monsters, it was more like us throwing money at them :P If we've got favor of the gods I might give it a go but we're possibly not looking for a challenge quite as intense as the Underworld, it's just a couple of mates coming round, we're just looking to make a bit of money for a few hours. Anyway I hope I don't sound ingrateful, thanks 84-175 and we may end up giving it a go. --Xasxas256 03:45, 25 June 2006 (CDT)
I'm a big hater of farming, but if you ever want to try out the UW, I'll happily act as your guide. I know the UW very well. I'm also a great survivor. (Random 55hp monks die so often in the beginning that I need to be able to solo the Aatxes with my SS necro) --Gem-icon-sm.png 04:25, 25 June 2006 (CDT)
I might just take you up on that, sure I may never be as famous as Honorable Sarah and have random ppl recognising me but still it'd be good to meet up with an old hand/fellow GuildWikian, just as long as you don't have to leave halfway through to walk the dog :P --Xasxas256 04:37, 25 June 2006 (CDT)
Luckily the dog is not mine, but Kalomelis, and I would never be able to play at her house. :) I will be online most of the week from tomorrow to sunday, so feel free to contact me any time. If you don't see me online, leave a message on the wiki. I probably am just in offline mode. --Gem-icon-sm.png 09:35, 25 June 2006 (CDT)
You use offline mode because you've got random stalkers who've seen your name on the wiki yeah? See that's what I'm always worried about hence no IGN on my user page. That's right you heard me, my ego is that large that I'm worried about getting the online equivalent of being mobbed! Ok cool, I'll look out for you this week, I know that's a bit like stalking you but I'm not random so I'm going to justify it like that :) --Xasxas256 09:50, 25 June 2006 (CDT)
I'm easy with publishing my character names. My ignore list is empty, so anyone who starts bugging me will get ignored. :) I've only made friends through the wiki. I'm in offline mode when I don't want to run/fight for customers, but play the game in peace. --Gem-icon-sm.png 10:45, 25 June 2006 (CDT)
This is a bit late and you and your buddies are probably inside the belly of some Aatxe somewhere in the UW, but there is a basic build that can be used to farm any where there is no heavy enchantment removal (this includes the Ring of Fire, Abaddon's Mouth, Sorrow's Furnace, Mourning Veil Falls, Silent Surf, ..., etc. I prefer level 24+ to maximize the drops of gold and the quality of loot.
The idea is to get a tank, a bonder and an SS necro. The bonder needs to bond and heal the tank, the tank needs to survive (might carry an offensive skill or two) and the SS necro (or ele nuker) kills. The only tough build is that of the monk, the rest is straight forward smart play. Tank needs to aggro right and hold aggro, SS needs to not go in too fast, monk needs to not cast on tank when he's gathering aggro. Let me know if you want the specifics of this. --Karlos 11:05, 25 June 2006 (CDT)

In case the underworld is to hard, you can always try for a round of Charr farming ;-) --Xeeron 11:31, 25 June 2006 (CDT)

Dang, Xeerons' right, stupid malfunctioning Xeeron/Xasxas256 multiple personality/hive mind! It's all about quantity not quality :P Karlos, I'm not sure if it's wise minds or crazy minds that think alike but we actually ended up using a tank, bonder and SS necro. Wierd huh? The builds were something like this:
I was running the bonder, I certainly don't think it's the perfect build, it was the first 3 person team farming build I'd created. Probably a N/Me echo SS and having a tank with more stances would have been better. But really we just normally play stuff that we think will be fun and that's the problem with farming, you're just doing the same thing over and over and you're limited in terms of what build you can run.
It kinda went ok but I think farming is inherently boring even with a group of people you know, normally we enjoying questing together but last night wasn't as much fun, I guess I'm with Gem on that one. I guess my two mates are not into the game as much as I am and we were wiping too often/not getting good enough good drops, maybe if we'd had your build Karlos' that we could successfully used straight out the box it would have been better. Anyway thanks for all your input thus far, I obviously still need help, I haven't achieved 3 man farming perfection yet :P --Xasxas256 20:28, 25 June 2006 (CDT)
Ok, so the key here is the Necro should not heal. This takes away their ability to echo as well as their energy (both Breeze and Heal Other are 10 energy each). Like I said, the trick is all in the Bonder, here is the build:
Attributes: 15 Prot, 11 Healing Prayers, 11 Divine Favor
Skills: Life Barrier, Life bond, Life Attunement, Dwayna's Kiss, Orison, Essence Bond, Rebirth, Signet of Devotion
If you expect Enchantment removal (one or two at most), then keep Essence Bond the lowest ecnahntment as the tank will be your primary source of energy. Heal with Dwayna's Kiss (~300 health per heal). The Necro should BR you while setting up. This way you can bond and heal the tank at the same time. Orison is for you and the Necro in case of trouble. The key is of course, proper aggro control, body-blocking and so forth. Do not cast on the tank until the enemy has settled on him, or they will run past him and come to you. If your necro is a fast killer, consider replacing Life Barrier with Spell Breaker and have the necro take out enchant removes first. --Karlos 04:36, 26 June 2006 (CDT)

thanks for the heads up[edit source]

Thanks for the note, I'll keep that in mind =) --Kiiron 12:34, 8 July 2006 (CDT)

Thank you[edit source]

Thank you for the help on the hornbow. Maybe archiving some of your talk page would be a good idea. ;)—├ Aratak 21:36, 17 July 2006 (CDT)

No worries, I was on hold on the phone so I decided to make a bit of use of my time ;) Archiving my talk page is on my to do list but I'm kind of partial to the clutter around here! I'm also strongly against deleting user talk comments, although that shouldn't prevent me from doing an archive. --Xasxas256 21:47, 17 July 2006 (CDT)

"Punishing shot not in build"?[edit source]

I'm not sure what you meant by that. It is the first skill on the skill bar. — Rapta Rapta Icon1.gif (talk|contribs) 18:12, 19 July 2006 (CDT)

I have absolutely no idea why, but I read Punishing Shot as Penetrating Attack. While we're talking about this build, Concussion Shot would only use 12 energy at 13 Expertise so it could probably be used. Although it would mean you couldn't spam the 3 other interrupts as much, you wouldn't need to, particularly if you were taking on say and Ele or Necro that casts slower. It would be a variant though, it was stuck in the notes section of the build before you removed it. --Xasxas256 18:21, 19 July 2006 (CDT)
Dunno, Concussion shot is usually a big waste. The interrupts listed there already refresh fast enough for them to be used repeatedly. A single spam usually just requires you to fire the first three all at once, and still have Energy to use your other skills, Concussion Shot would restrict the follow-up of the spam/combo. — Rapta Rapta Icon1.gif (talk|contribs) 18:27, 19 July 2006 (CDT)
It's a bit hard to say if it's a variant or a totally different build, if you're using Concussion Shot then you probably want covering conditions, possibly Needling Shot, Read the Wind etc. I'm happy enough to have it (the Concussion Shot variant) left out. --Xasxas256 18:43, 19 July 2006 (CDT)

My userpage[edit source]

Thanks for removing the category thing from my userpage, but I'm aiming to copy the code to the original article. You could just have put the code in a comment, so I don't have to look up the Template for it again. Or told me that code also cause a catergory listing. =) --Stylva 03:40, 21 July 2006 (CDT)

I guess I went for style over substance :P Yeah I guess putting a comment around the template probably would have made your life easier, but the article would have looked diffeent. Ah well it's all in the history anyway. --Xasxas256 00:09, 22 July 2006 (CDT)

Chos[edit source]

Content of page:

"the afflicted minister cho is located at the end of the first mission in the factions campaign, cooperative mission."

Can't see what I did wrong, we do already have that page — Skuld Monk 07:15, 23 July 2006 (CDT)

Well as I'm not an admin, I'll have to take your word for it! I'm don't think I said that you did anything wrong anyway, although now that you bring it up, it did seem strange that you deleted the article when there was an active discussion on the talk page. Still I logged in, did the mission, found the boss and I've created the page properly now, so all's well that ends well and all that. I like the section title too, "Chos"! If you think it's confusing here, what about Cho!!! --Xasxas256 07:23, 23 July 2006 (CDT)
Does anyone object if I add <dl></dl> to this section? The funky indents in IE6 are messing with my mind ... --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 23:41, 9 August 2006 (CDT)
Oh wow look at the old revision, that is pretty trippy! Then again everything is pretty trippy when you've had as much cold and flu medicine as I've had in the last 48 hours. I do worry about the "If an overdoes is taken...go to the hospital straight away even if you feel well because of the risk of delayed, serious liver damage." label. Just how much IS too much...? Errr anyway no objections from me, as long as my liver function is ok, I'm happy! --Xasxas256 01:09, 10 August 2006 (CDT)

keeping sarch happy[edit source]

who's sarch, and why does he want "==[[article]]==" to read "=[[article]]="? --Honorable Sarah Honorable Icon.gif 22:15, 2 August 2006 (CDT)

Mate he wants all sorts of things, that was just a start! Go back one revision in your talk page history (while ignoring my edit summary typing skills) you'll see I was just fixing some formatting on a comment originally made by User:Zeryu Hitando, I don't know why you removed it all... Anywho on a seperate thing, we don't like "Sarch" as a nickname? :P--Xasxas256 22:22, 2 August 2006 (CDT)
we moved it to the users page, along with my response thanking him for clearing it up. we were just curious what sarch ment. the only change that showed on the history was that one modification. maybe the edit was corrupted? i've been having all types of weird beheviour tonight. --Honorable Sarah Honorable Icon.gif 22:27, 2 August 2006 (CDT)
Yep sounds like you're drunk and during a weekday too, shame Sarah! Oh wierd wiki behaviour, actually the previous sentence was a diversion because I think you're right about the corrupted edit I got impatient and kind of closed the tab while it was still loading. The edit seemed ok when I revied it but I should probably try to be less impatient next time. I've been meaning to ask you something for ages too, if I can find the edit again I'll ask you now. --Xasxas256 22:33, 2 August 2006 (CDT)

count[edit source]

Cleric: And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.

Brother Maynard: Amen.
All: Amen.
King Arthur: Right. One... two... five.
Galahad: Three, sir.
King Arthur: Three.

with love, Honorable Sarah Honorable Icon.gif 22:58, 2 August 2006 (CDT)
Ha ha thanks love. The best thing is that what I actually should have done is categorise it as unfavoured but instead added a del tag. This is particularly bad given that I campaigned so heavily for the use of unfavoured category, my build page is a testament to that. So you see the legend of the Holy Grail is grand but with skills as mad as mine...I think I am the true embodiment of a legend! --Xasxas256
i really have no idea what you just said. lay off the dwarven ale, k? --Honorable Sarah Honorable Icon.gif 23:10, 2 August 2006 (CDT)
Well you'll love what I wrote on Raptas talk page just then...ok back to normally for a second before returning to the asylum, I noticed you moved [[R/Mo Minion Shredder]] to [[R/Mo Holy Barrager]] but kept it as a redirect. I always +del the moved page because I see no need for it. --Xasxas256 23:21, 2 August 2006 (CDT)

I got an idea...[edit source]

i got an idea today. maybe we could make a seperate page for each weapon mod. since i'm wiki illiterate, maybe you could help me with it? i say this because you fix my errors, and anybody who can fix my errors, deserves recognition :-) --Fiznuckin Biznitch 23:40, 5 August 2006 (CDT)

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to reply but I had a very very busy weekend, it's very rare for me to be away from the GWiki for more than a day. Also I fix lots of people mistakes and don't worry yours was pretty minor, I've seen lots worse than that :P I'm not entirely sure just what you're aiming for in terms of having a seperate page but it's worthwhile thinking about how you want to split it up. E.g.:
  • Upgrade
    • So the Poisonous page will list weapons it can be found for (which we already have).
  • Weapon
    • So the Sword page will list what Hilts and Pommels it can have
  • Type
    • Create new classifications, e.g. we have Defending type upgrades (Defensive heads, of Shelter/Fortitude etc. wrappings). Another page for species upgrades (of Charrslaying etc.) Another page for lengthen duration (Barbed, Crippling etc.).
  • Everything
    • A page for a Crippling Axe Haft, Crippling Sword Haft, Axe Grip of Defense etc.

I'm not so sure that any of these classifications is all that useful. We already pages for Poisonous, of Defense, Hammer Grip and Hammer Haft. If you look at the Weapon upgrade page you'll see a lot of blue links. If you mean having a page for everything (the last bullet point above), I don't know how useful that would be, seems like overkill given we've got a page for Crippling and Axe Haft, is it necessary then have the information repeated in a small page for Crippling Axe Haft? Anyway as I'm not sure what you meant by make a seperate page for each weapon mod I've thrown some ideas up. But I don't really see that having redundant information is all that useful at the moment so I'll wait for your reply ;) --Xasxas256 00:12, 7 August 2006 (CDT)

Crap i didn't even see those links on the page! oh well ya scratch that idea. I really want to do something to help guildwiki, so maybe you could give me some suggestions on little things that need fixing? i'm feeling pretty stupid but i'm not very good at guildwiki and this could be good practice.
just let me know what you think and i would really appreciate it!-- 00:30, 7 August 2006 (CDT)
Well you could start by logging in :P We do have a list of stuff to fix at GuildWiki:Community Portal although a lot of it appears to be obscure or difficult to work on. There's also the Cleanup category. Wiki editing is a quirky thing at times but I enjoy working with it and there's always plenty to do, Gem has a listing off maintanence stuff on his user page. In fact there's a Helping out category too. I guess other ways to help out are to having a look at the Recent Changes and see if you can improve any edits or even just click on the Random page link and see if an article appears that you can fix up. That should give you plenty to sink your teeth into! ;D --Xasxas256 05:13, 7 August 2006 (CDT)
I never thought that someone else could use my wiki project list. What a great idea! --Gem-icon-sm.png (talk) 06:37, 7 August 2006 (CDT)
Ya i found out about the Cleanup category and i cleaned up Earth Staff and the [[E/Me Mist Farmer]] build. Check them out, and tell me if i did the right thing when you get a chance. --Fiznuckin Biznitch 15:40, 7 August 2006 (CDT)
I took a look over [[E/Me Mist Farmer]], it needed a big tidy up, some of the grammar needed improvement, the spelling was off in places and virtually every skill was written in lowercase :P It needed a fair bit of work to get it in line with [[GuildWiki:Style and formatting/Builds]]. I could see you made some improvements, have a look at this, it's the numerous improvements I made to it. ;) Your Earth Staff improvements were pretty much spot on, I just did a spelling fix and moved the categories to the bottom (which we always do on any page) on my edit. Anyway well done, hope my commentary helps ;) --Xasxas256 20:38, 7 August 2006 (CDT)
Oh i removed those photos on accident and i didn't know how to get them back lol. but thanx for giving me feedback. i'm so stupid i forgot to look at spelling and links on the [[E/Me Mist Farmer]] page so thanx for tidying that up. well this section is getting kind of long, so i'll try to make this my last comment lol. but ya i'll just keep working on the cleanup pages and trying to get them out of the cleanup section. thanx again! oh ya i have one more question... Skuld for example, has his own signature template. How would i go about making one of those for myself? mine would just have a little picture and my name, no fancy boldness or different colors or anything lol, it would just say Fiz and then a little picture. it would be great if you could tell me. Later!--Fiznuckin Biznitch 22:20, 9 August 2006 (CDT)
Ok I'm not the sig master (you'll notice I don't use a custom sig myself) but I believe you need to make a page called User:Fiznuckin Biznitch/Sig and add your sig there. You can look at User:ST47/sig, User:Gem/Sig and User:Honorable_Sarah/Sig for some examples (a complete list is found here). Then go to your preferences and change Custom Signature to {{subst:User:Fiznuckin Biznitch/Sig}} and tick the Raw signatures box. That should be it. You will have to remember to put the ~~~~ at the end of your comments though (hint hint looking at your last comment) ;) --Xasxas256 18:55, 9 August 2006 (CDT)
God dang it, i knew i forgot something! fixed it tho :-) thanx i'll try that out. Now that i'm looking at the code, the nowiki thing is helpful. thanx for that too. and congrats on the Admin nomination!! --Fiznuckin Biznitch 22:20, 9 August 2006 (CDT)
Just checking to see if it worked --FizFiz.jpg 22:27, 9 August 2006 (CDT) yay it worked! thanx.
Many thanks. You sig is lookin nice, good size and you've already set up the redirect on your image, cool ;) --Xasxas256 22:38, 9 August 2006 (CDT)
Haha no problem and ya i'm always prepared :-) ya i stole ur grey boxes things for my user page, i hope u don't mind. i put a note in my about section saying i got them from you, in case you see them on my user page and don't see the recognition note lol.--FizFiz.jpg 23:24, 9 August 2006 (CDT)

Womak[edit source]

Noticed the deletion of the redirect from War Captain Womack to War Captain Womak. Did ANet fix the typo in game? If so you may wish to denote that on the talk page for him and/or on The Halcyon Job. Otherwise I think it's still valuable to have, despite the rarity that someone would actually look up the fella. --Zampani 01:19, 10 August 2006 (CDT)

I don't believe they've fixed it so I've readded the article just now, even if as you say, there's probably not going to be too many people looking him up, redirects use up few resources according to current thinking so I'm happy to recreate the article. Thanks for keeping me in check (I just have to work on run-on sentences now ;) ) --Xasxas256 03:15, 10 August 2006 (CDT)
Keeping each other in check is how this site works so well! Cheers to that, and thanks for the change. :-) --Zampani 09:35, 10 August 2006 (CDT)

Sorry about the redirect lol[edit source]

But this is literally the first day I've used wiki code XD. How the heck did I accidently make a redirect if I dont even know how to make one o.O Or was it kitty who did that? And is there any help site I should go to so I dont do something incredibly stupid? Thanks for fixing it up anwyays. (Not a fifty five 06:53, 10 August 2006 (CDT))

No no it was KittySoft's fault but it's not a big drama. It was a bit like when you've just spend half an hour sweeping up leaves then the wind blows a bunch off a tree. Or something. Anyway when you move a page it creates a redirect from the old page to the new one. If you're interested in this kind of stuff, have a gander at my user page, it's full of tips and stuff. --Xasxas256 07:27, 10 August 2006 (CDT)

reply from dbulger[edit source]

Thanks for the quick welcome. I did not know about the re-edit the main page rule. I just noticed my edit suggestion was gone very fast and I was like "hey it's gone!" so i put it back lol. In case you were wondering I created the little tidbit about starting in prophecies or factions. I put it on several pages to make sure it won't be missed by new players that have that question, as there is no general new player guide but 2 seperate guides (proph and fact)

That's ok, I figured you were new to the GuildWiki. Roleplaying character creation is the basic guide to creating a new PvE character and general information on the differences between the two campaigns belongs there (and your info has been added there). We can't say one campaign is easier than the other because that varies from person to person but your info on the differences is certainly useful. P.S. You put: ~~~~ after your talk page comments to automatically generate your sig ;) If your interested in knowing a bit more on GuildWiki editing, have a look at my user page. --Xasxas256 00:07, 17 August 2006 (CDT)

Black lotus build[edit source]

ignoring the wiki for football, really. build is moved, user is notified. --Honorable Sarah Honorable Icon.gif 10:14, 18 August 2006 (CDT)

Ah thanks for that. I don't know where you got the football idea from, I went out with a mate for dinner then we kicked back and played some Guild Wars, I'm not going to the footy until tomorrow ~_~ I dunno just as I was heading out I noticed that and it had been sitting there for a while with nobody moving on it so to speak. I guess it just bugs me to see newly added bits and pieces that are not up to scratch and need tidying.
I'm a bit melancholy at the moment, a fella from work has just left, a really good guy you know, kinda got me thinking about the GuildWiki. Karlos for example hasn't been around much lately, it's a bit sad ya know, anyone here at any time is bound to just kind of fade out and leave without a real goodbye. In some ways I feel that we're just a community with similar interests like an XBOX forum or something but we have a sort of higher purpose, a universal goal, something we're working together to achieve that being of course the documentatoin of GuildWars. But the problem is this has a far more limited lifespan, at some stage more and more people are going to stop playing this game (if they haven't already) and editing the wiki. But I suppose as long as I'm enjoying my time here ,I may as well try not to think about it. --Xasxas256 01:42, 19 August 2006 (CDT)
Heh, Xasxas, ur right. The wiki is moving toward a universal goal. But what is it? Nobody knows. There really is no end for GuildWiki (unless of course GuildWars gets shut down entirely). We go around, change little things, make new articles, but to reach what? A state of complete GuildWars knowlege? A website with perfect spelling and perfect grammar? The goal is not known, and I don't think it ever will be known. The wiki will keep expanding until one day, in the far future (hopefully), a mass event will take place and it will be the end. Look at the mothership, It just keeps getting bigger with more things added to our world. The same is happening to GuildWiki. But eventually, like you said, more and more people will stop playing it, and it will just cease to exist. I don't see an end for GuildWars. I don't see and end for the wiki. But when the time comes where we all have to just stop, we must go on. There are plenty of other wikis in this ocean we call the internet. --FizFiz.jpg 03:20, 19 August 2006 (CDT)

Nightfall Builds vote[edit source]

In response to you'r vote, couldnt a move and retag remove your reasoning for delete? remove the "untested" and add in the C3 tag, and move them to namespace but give them a Prerelease Build tage stating that the builds will likely change and are just there for informational purposes to provide concepts for builds once the game is released. This would IMO allieviate the problem of people having to patrol them WHILE allowing those of us who want this to remain for inspiration. --Midnight08 Assassin 06:38, 24 August 2006 (CDT)

Ages ago Xeeron wanted to clean up the builds (ie delete poor and outdated ones) but I campaigned to save them and add the unfavoured tag with Bishop (see here and here) as I thought they mave still have some benefit. I think we may have made a mistake, a generally harsher trend would have been better because our [[:Category:Untested builds|new builds category]] is just getting more and more bloated. I don't think we can keep up with the influx of new builds, in particular cruddy ones that generate little interest and sit in limbo.
A lot more people have weighed into this new debate which is interesting I suppose but I don't think your solution addresses my main concern. People are going to submit builds that are ordinary but we can't test them. People will submit good builds too but they might be terrible when the skill balancing for Nightfall's release comes in. We don't know when it'll be released but it's still a while away, people come and go, most people who submit a build now are going to forget about it, who's going to come back and fix a build they wrote months ago? When Nightfall is released, people are not going to look at our "potential Nightfall builds" category to create a build, they're going to look at the new skills and their stats and make their builds from that, leaving this unwanted, forgotten, unmaintained section of the GuildWiki.
I've been here for a while and realise that as a wiki grows it tends to have a greater quantity of article but a lower quality of articles. The level of wiki editors who can write really good articles tends to stay at a similar level, well perhaps some increase, but with more template usage and generally accessibility is harder, it's more difficult to be a "good" editor and takes longer for a new user to get to that level. But you get more and more low level of wiki knowledge contributors. What does a regular do? Try to teach new users as much as possible in the hope that they'll be able to take over the reigns? Work harder at tidying up new poorly written submission? As this community is getting bigger it's hard to keep up with who's who, it's obviously not as tight-knit as it used to be and it’s harder to coordinate things. Eventually it gets to the stage where everything needs to be voted on because there are just too many people to get a general agreement on anything.
Ok I've raised lots of issues here which are of interest but I've also probably wandered off track so I'll to bring it back together. I don't mind that a vote has been called here, there doesn't seem to be a general consensus, opinion is divided and there's enough people who've taken an interest to warrant a vote. But as a wiki gets bigger it tends to have more rules, people don't all know each other anymore. Rules tend to be stricter too and more specific. In this case I think the foot needs to be put down, speculative builds don't generate much benefit to the community in my opinion and when Nightfall is released they'll be forgotten. Sorry for the long reply, I've been cut off from the GuildWiki at work so I've had some pent up stuff to say! --Xasxas256 08:55, 24 August 2006 (CDT)

Hey, could you just take a glance at the above named section on my page and just give me a quick review on my discussion page for each one? Basically this is my personal solution to the lack of comments in the [[:Category:Untested builds|untested]] section (I agree there should be more, but I'm getting tired of all the arguing about it, people just keep repeating the same things and nothing really gets done/decided). My hope is that by doing this and then asking people for feedback, not votes, I can get the builds perfected before the untested section and save the testers a lot of grief. So far it seems to be working, and I look forward to your help. Thanks in advance.--Azroth 22:29, 8 September 2006 (CDT)
PS-Please read the previous discussions for each one as they may answer any questions that you have about the related build.

I don't have time to do it at the moment and am I little hesitant in diving into anything builds related at the moment to be honest. I'm not sure we've "met" before, can I ask what your motivation was to ask me? If we have had some discussion previously that I've forgotten, I apologise, I haven't been around much for the last week and a bit, but I was wondering where my name came up. Anyway if I am right and we haven't chatted before, hi nice to meet you Azroth :) --Xasxas256 05:45, 10 September 2006 (CDT)
He posted on pretty many users talk pages, even mine. I'm not sure why, because i'm definitely not the right person for this stuff. --Gem-icon-sm.png (talk) 06:31, 10 September 2006 (CDT)
"Even mine"? Pfft everrrrryybody know Gem! But I haven't been around much for the last week and a bit, why am I one of the chosen ones, I don't think I've done anything controversial of late. --Xasxas256 06:36, 10 September 2006 (CDT)
I had half a dozen of watched user talk pages popped up by his "Currently Testing the Viability of…" campaign. No idea what the logic was. --Gem-icon-sm.png (talk) 06:39, 10 September 2006 (CDT)

Sorry for all the trouble, and no, I haven't met you personally. I found you when I asked Rapta for help and saw all your posts on his page. More or less I was just asking people who seemed to have been around the wiki for a while since I figured that you would have a better understanding than I about what can really make a build shine more or less, and have a better chance to get vetted. Originally I wasn't asking people personally to help me out, but no one happened across my user page (probably because I'm new here and not well known). So I asked 2 people who seemed prominent and infamous on the builds page right now, Rapta and Not a fifty five. That gave some good reviews, but I was looking for a bit more diversity of opinion so I spread this request around. Sorry if it bugs you Gem, I just figured that most people probably wouldn't be interested (and they weren't) in helping out, but maybe a few might. That’s why I put so many requests out there. I guess I'll refrain from doing so in the future, and sorry for the trouble. Oh, and nice to meet you too Xasxas, I love your section on the 3 types of new users :) --Azroth 12:00, 10 September 2006 (CDT)

I wasn't irritated. I was just wondering. However, in teh future try to post to users who actually have something to do with the stuff you want them to view. Ie build things should be targeted at frequent build reviewers and policy stuff at admins. --Gem-icon-sm.png (talk) 15:24, 10 September 2006 (CDT)
Sure thing, thanks. Sorry about all this but I'm kind of new here so I dont realy know who is involved in 'blank' and who would like nothing to do with 'blank'. I'll figure it out eventually, but till then please put up with me and point me in the right direction when I seem to be in the wrong place. Thanks again.--Azroth 16:30, 10 September 2006 (CDT)
I'm not really sure what you're asking me to do, it's just a discussion, I can't see any builds. I had a quick glance back at the history of your talk page, I'm still not sure what I'm supposed to be evaluating/improving. Sorry it's taken me so long to get to this, I haven't had much time of late. You've entered the GuildWiki builds section at a how should I say it, interesting time, it's not normally this tumultuous here! --Xasxas256 22:52, 11 September 2006 (CDT)
Xas: The builds are on his user page. It took me a whie to notice that. --Gem-icon-sm.png (talk) 23:10, 11 September 2006 (CDT)

Oh, sorry I forgot the main link. What I meant by my page was my user page. The section that the talk page relates too can be found there. The part on my disscusion is where I wanted feedback to be left on each one. This link here will take you right to the appropriate section on it so you wont have to scroll to much. And no problem about the delay, its just nice to hear that you at least looked for it and are willing to help.--Azroth 23:16, 11 September 2006 (CDT)

Oh, one aditional note. If you see a build name with 2 skill bars under it, it means that the first one is old and only left up there for comparison purposes. The second bar is the current one and the one I'm currently working on. I just thought it would be better to leave the old skills up there so people could see the changes made since it was originaly posted. This apllies to all cases Except the Knock 'n Shock build, which is just made up of 3 different skill sets that are all varients of each other.--Azroth 23:20, 11 September 2006 (CDT)
I think what Sarah's been doing is discouraging people from adding {{subst:rate-a-build}} until the build is ready to be voted upon, ie wait until people start giving positive feedback and it needs no further major changes. That seems ok to me, it's no good if a build is submitted, people start voting and giving suggestions at the same time, the build develops into something far better that the original but people have already voted it down. It doesn't solve the limbo problem where nobody adds any votes/comments though.
Gaah! So many Rit and 'Sin builds! I'll see how I go --Xasxas256 23:32, 11 September 2006 (CDT)
Hey, I know you've been bussy, and thanks for the help with my sig :), but I've basicly called in all the favors I can to get people to give me some opinions on my builds so I'm kind of getting desperate. The main problem is Rapta's wiki break which prevents me from asking him for help on this subject. So I kind of need a final answer. Can you give me a hand? If not, thanks anyway, its not like you owe me any favors (and as it is I might owe you one or two). If yes, then please let me know what you think of my builds as soon as possible. Either way, the section was getting kind of big so I moved it to User:Azroth/Builds to make it easier to manage. You can either click on this link to get there, or the first picture in my sig redirects you there as well. Keep in mind that these are just theoretical. I'm only looking for an opinion on what you think about it, as several of these cant even be tested. Either way, thanks a lot.— builds Azroth talk 23:02, 26 September 2006 (CDT)
Unfortunately you've got a lot of Rit and Sin builds there, my guild never calls upon me to play them so I haven't used either much for ages. I did comment on your 3 Knock 'n Shock variations though. The other problem is that it's a bit hard to test the builds with Nightfall skills in them. Probably the only other one I can test is the Vampiric Aura, but it looks like you've got a fair bit of feedback on that already. --Xasxas256 18:42, 27 September 2006 (CDT)

lol, I dont mean them to be tested. what I was looking for was just a Rapta vote (excuse the reference). Just look it over, think about it for a while, imagine what it would look like in battle, and then let me know anything that comes to mind. Thats all. But man, that would be evil of me to post all those ideas up there without even a full usage article, and several including Nightfall skills, and then expect people to test them all :P— builds Azroth talk 19:53, 27 September 2006 (CDT)

Question[edit source]

How do you link an image to something besides its' image page? Is it possible? --Shadowed Warrior 15:32, 12 September 2006 (CDT)

See User talk:Shadowed/Template:minibar and its page. --Shadowed Warrior 17:36, 12 September 2006 (CDT)
Looks like Gem set you straight ;) --Xasxas256 20:52, 12 September 2006 (CDT)
Indeed he did, thanks anyways though :) ShadowedSig.png 01:57, 14 September 2006 (CDT)

Wikicode for Dummies[edit source]

Hi, Barek and I were going to ask you if you could put your advanced newbie help from your user page somewhere in guildwiki namespace. Like I said, it pretty much covers anything I would've put in wikicode for dummies, so perhaps you could just archive my writing and put your help page their? And if you dont like the name just delete my page and add in your own. (Not a fifty five 01:33, 13 September 2006 (CDT))

I actually proposed something similar ages ago but got no interest. It's not as polished as it could be but sure I'm happy for it to be moved into the GuildWiki namespace and become an official editing guide. I don't like the "for dummies" name though, GuildWiki:Editing Guide or something would be a lot better.
I won't be able to say to new users "take a look at my user page for more editing help" any more either. I don't know what I'll do with the new space on my user page. Oh well I'll get over it, I'll have to find some other way to make my page unique (as long as I don't use boxes with rounded corners and pictures I should be fine, people always want to copy user pages with that kind of thing!). --Xasxas256 06:12, 14 September 2006 (CDT)

"See now I'm really curious to see what was removed!"[edit source]

If you didn't see it, I have a copy of that elona map that I would be glad to send to you through any medium other than wiki.-Onlyashadow 08:23, 14 September 2006 (CDT)

Go on I dare you to post a link to it here, just to test out what I said! Nah seriously you better not, my user page might finally get archived except without the moving bit, only the deleting bit! Thanks for the offer but don't worry about it, I'm supposed to be acting like a respectable citizen :P Maybe that's why RFAs never go through, it's like Christmas that never comes but you keep doing the right thing anyway! Must be only trouble makers like me that get nominated! --Xasxas256 08:49, 14 September 2006 (CDT)
Lol :) <LordBiro>/<Talk> 08:56, 14 September 2006 (CDT)

Ok well IF you want to check it out according to the up&coming policy I can put it on my userpage w/o getting shot by the bancannon, so when that new policy is passed I'll put it up there, until then I'll clean up my page so it's findable.-Onlyashadow 09:15, 14 September 2006 (CDT)

Wikistress[edit source]

[1] I went from #3 to #4? Just by you editing the page? You must be pretty annoying (j/k) :P — Skuld 02:20, 18 September 2006 (CDT)

I should have bumped myself up too, I don't descriminate, I annoy myself as much as I annoy others! I should really give those wikistress images better names. You know names that don't induce stress! --Xasxas256 05:53, 18 September 2006 (CDT)

No worries. If you're after some inspiration, Gem keeps a list of nice looking user pages here. --Xasxas256 20:25, 21 September 2006 (CDT)

Help needed[edit source]

Hey I can't seem to upload pictures aslo how do you get a contact box many thanks :-)--Lancek 17:38, 23 September 2006 (CDT)

Heya there :) You just use the Upload file link on the left to upload an image. I'm not sure what you mean by a "contact box" though, what is it exactly? Oh and just a tip, you normally put new discussion comments at the bottom of the page ;) --Xasxas256 23:52, 24 September 2006 (CDT)

Logon[edit source]

lol, im sry. Thanks for the warning though. Im just logged on a diff comp and forgot it didnt have autopref.

No worries, I figured that it was probably that you'd forgotten to log on or something. I've noticed that you're doing a lot of mucking around with your user page at the moment, you've taken out Category:Templates/Users which is good but you're still in Category:Templates/Babel, but I'm sure you'll work it out :P That said you don't need to do it as complicated as that you can just use: {{User Eu}} {{User Kurzick}} {{Babel|en|N}} {{user PvE&PvP}} etc. Oh and you should tick the This is a minor edit box and use preview more if you can, you're clogging up Recent Changes!! --Xasxas256 20:29, 26 September 2006 (CDT)

Request input on possible change[edit source]

Hi there, you look like a helpful admin! I'm new and spotted what may be a reasonable inaccuracy... I don't want to go straight in and alter the appropriate pages though without a bit of advice. As I posted on the Nebo Terrace discussion page, I can find no bosses in Nebo terrace at all. I've been through the area numerous times and cannot find a single one. However changing it is quite a big change as it also means altering quite a few boss pages and skill capture sections (though not elite ones). Is there anything I can do to check my own accuracy before I make the necessary amendments? Just seems weird that it's not been noticed before, or that it never made it onto the GW update pages (though I know they don't report every small change!) -- Karalin Fireball.jpg(talk|contribs) 09:12, 27 September 2006 (CDT)

I saw this post and ran out the door of Bergen Hot Springs to check it out. Almost immediately I came accross Ryn Cursewing, so bosses do still spawn in the Nebo Terrace area. If I remember right, they are random spawns, so it's entirely possible that they won't be there everytime. Of course, this makes it much harder to validate the data in the wiki; if a boss were removed who only spawned sporadically to begin, it's entirely possible that one or more (but clearly not all) could've been removed and no one noticed. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 09:30, 27 September 2006 (CDT)
Hm. Glad I didn't change it then... maybe they're not present if certain quests are active? -- Karalin Fireball.jpg(talk|contribs) 10:41, 27 September 2006 (CDT)
I've replied at Talk:Nebo Terrace. --Gem-icon-sm.png (talk) 14:28, 27 September 2006 (CDT)
Ah well thanks thanks guys, I think Gem's almost got more posts on my talk page then I do! :P Maybe I need to get him back by spamming his talk page again... ;) Anyway it's nice to meet you Karalin although I'm a little curious as to why you thought I'm an admin. Do my edits look particularly authorative, or is it more that I walk around with my chest stuck out! :P I'm just curious is all, I'm not an admin, I'm just a hopeful. --Xasxas256 18:42, 27 September 2006 (CDT)
Hmmm my mistake... I figured the box at the top was a reminder of the process that led you to being an admin, rather than a link to an ongoing process! I get it now :) Good luck! -- Karalin Fireball.jpg(talk|contribs) 02:35, 28 September 2006 (CDT)
Ah ok that explains it, I've changed the note and hopefully made it clearer now. Shame about all those millions of people (yes that's right millions!) who've seen my user page not voted because of my ambiguous note. --Xasxas256 19:20, 28 September 2006 (CDT)

lol, you have over 90 posts, Gem-icon-sm.png less than 25 :P— builds Azroth talk 20:01, 27 September 2006 (CDT)

And on Gem's talk page I've got 14 and he's got 27, so that's about 52%. Whereas here Gem's shooting at 28%. I always thought Gem was stalking me, maybe I'm the creepy stalker guy! --Xasxas256 21:04, 27 September 2006 (CDT)

help with sig.... please?[edit source]

hey. i noticed you helped Azroth with his signature and was wondering if you could point me in the right direction. I just want to add the icon for spirit bond right after my name but i dont really understand what the correct code would be. I have been using Spirit Bond Spirit Bond but this puts the name after it as well. Any help would be appreciated.--Coloneh 01:31, 7 October 2006 (CDT)

Sure no problems, at User:Coloneh/Sig you need to add this: --[[User:Coloneh|Coloneh]] [[Image:Spirit Bond.jpg|20px]] <noinclude>[[Category:Templates/User signatures|{{PAGENAME}}]]</noinclude>
Then go to your preferences and change Custom Signature to Coloneh Spirit Bond.jpg and tick the Raw signatures box. That should be it, when you next put ~~~~ it'll look like this: --Coloneh Spirit Bond.jpg Good luck with it ;) --Xasxas256 20:02, 7 October 2006 (CDT)
Thank you! thats exactly what i wanted it to do.--Coloneh Spirit Bond.jpg 21:30, 7 October 2006 (CDT)
I was in a bit of a hurry when I replied; I've uploaded Image:Coloneh.png which is just the Spirit Bond picture scaled to 20px for you. This is advantageous for a couple of reasons:
  • Instead of getting the server to scale Image:Spirit Bond.jpg to 20px (which uses server resources), it's already been done manually.
  • This also means it's slightly better quality.
  • The what links here for the Spirit Bond image doesn't include all the pages you've added your sig too.
  • I've set the image to redirect to your user page (or it can redirect to whatever you like)
  • Finally if you want to change your sig pic, you can change Image:Coloneh.png and it'll update all your old sigs.
So give the new image Image:Coloneh.png a go in your sig ;) --Xasxas256 06:20, 8 October 2006 (CDT)
For the record, scaling images doesn't use any resources, apart from the first time the image is viewed. Scaled images are not re-scaled every time, but scaled once and stored on the server in case that size is ever needed again. <LordBiro>/<Talk> 07:40, 8 October 2006 (CDT)
I suppose that makes sense now that you mention it Biro, I'd never thought of checking the full URL before. Still the other points are still valid :P I guess that also means that if I'm trying to work out the best size for an image, every time I rescale it, the server creates another copy of it. Or maybe it doesn't do it for previews. --Xasxas256 23:28, 9 October 2006 (CDT)
Thank you so much. I think Im starting to understand this wiki format a little.--Coloneh Coloneh.png 10:33, 8 October 2006 (CDT)

Woops, didn't mean to draw attention, sorry. Well, looks like you're the new "go-to-guy" for sig help. Congratulations on your new position :P— builds Azroth talk 15:52, 8 October 2006 (CDT)

It's kind of funny isn't it considering I'm using the plain old vanilla sig! But I'm always happy to help people out and apparently custom sigs are the "in" thing at the moment! :P --Xasxas256 23:28, 9 October 2006 (CDT)

That's a bloody excellent idea mate, seriously I love it :) You've made my week! I was at a friend's girlfriend's place on the weekend and found out her Dad's had an old 70s 911, they're just fantasic cars aren't they? On a different track, I've always wondered which Skuld Skuld is from, is it actually taken from OMG!? --Xasxas256 23:28, 9 October 2006 (CDT)

Cyclonic Burster[edit source]

I noticed you have a similar build to one that I'm working on (Cyclonic Burster) except that I'm using Water for AoE and snaring. I'm looking for feedback on my version, which can be found on my userpage. For example, I'm wondering if you considered Signet of Strength but decided against it. I liked it at first but am considering if the slot might be better used for something else. Also, I can't decide whether or not a major rune would be worth it. Any comments would be appreciated, thanks! -- BrianG 23:59, 9 October 2006 (CDT)

Are you talking about one "my" builds on User:Xasxas256/Builds? There's heaps on that page and they're not really my builds, which one are you refering too? Signet of Strength is a Factions skill, none of the builds on that page have any Factions skills I don't think, I'm pretty sure they were created prior to its release (I might have to check that though). --Xasxas256 03:44, 10 October 2006 (CDT)
Ahhhhh, I see. Yes, the build I'm talking about is from that page, its a W/E called Cyclonic Burster, I thought it was your build. Well if you have any feedback anyway, let me know. -- BrianG 08:07, 10 October 2006 (CDT)

Bloody admins, go pick on someone your own size! (Note talk page length doesn't count towards "size"!) Also Special:Longpages is all lies, both here and User:Xasxas256/Builds should be on the list!

How is my RFA ever supposed to go through when I've had the black mark of being banned against my name now! :P Help me, I'm being repressed, again! Nah I'm not fussed Karlos, just as long as you weren't testing out a bug which means that all your bans seem to be permanent or something! --Xasxas256 19:40, 10 October 2006 (CDT)

Is that like "Hmmm that's a good idea" or more of a disapproving " shouldn't poke fun so much." You're not seeing the funny side Fyren? I mean I just found out I got temporarily blocked, it'd be a worry if I couldn't see the humour in it! :) --Xasxas256 08:32, 11 October 2006 (CDT)
It's probably "Hmmm..." along the lines of Fyren has an idea, stay well clear. *grin* Kessel 08:44, 11 October 2006 (CDT)
Ha ha, well as long as it doesn't involve Fyrenbot, anything that can make edits faster than Skuld scares me! ;) --Xasxas256 08:55, 11 October 2006 (CDT)

Thanxs[edit source]

thanxs for the help on the editing of my build. i revised it, hope it matches up to your standards. --Spiffster_x

Babel boxes[edit source]

Just wondering why you are changing the babel boxes to category inculsion something on my userpage but keeping the babel on, for example, User:HelenaStylva 07:32, 25 October 2006 (CDT)

That's a good question with a long answer! :P I think all of your fellow Swedes have "normal" babel code. I was trying to work out why some people were incorrectly in this category. See there were some people who'd just incorrectly added the category which was easy but there were five others....sorry I'll cut to the chase. I was mucking around in the sandbox and I thought I'd fixed it using Karlos style babeling so I changed your user page then realised that it still wasn't working. The problem was that the Category:Users/Language/se-N didn't work correctly. Anyway long story short I forgot to change yours back from krazy Karlos style to normal style, my apologies, you can change it back to the {{babel|sv|N}} format if you'd like. P.S. Volvos rock! :D --Xasxas256 07:42, 25 October 2006 (CDT)
Aha, I see. Thanks =) (Btw, Volvo's are ugly imho ;) ) — Stylva 07:49, 25 October 2006 (CDT)
/fistshake my last car and my current car is a Volvo! Although you say "Volvo's are ugly", you were thinking "ugly but awesome!" Am I right? :P --Xasxas256 07:54, 25 October 2006 (CDT)
I don't drive, so I have no idea, I just look at them and sit in them :P And in Sweden there's a craze about old Volvo cars, which are really ugly AND uncomfortable. That's mainly why I don't like them ;P Probably the new ones is nicer in some way, since ppl buy them even outside of Sweden :P — Stylva 08:28, 25 October 2006 (CDT)

Categories[edit source]

When you make a category, for instance: Category:Contains monstrous eye, is it usual to use a plural or singular? Because monstrous fangs has one for fang and fangs. And I created a category for Category:Contains sapphire but someone edited my article to make it plural. When I made it I had checked to see what the norm was and everywhere I could find the words were singular except for fang/fangs where there were two categories. I'm asking you cause if I ask anywhere else I bet you'll show up and answer my question anyway. :P - BeXoR Bexor.png 19:28, 9 November 2006 (CST)

Aberrant80 is the master of these kinda things actually but looking over Category:Items you seem to be onto something. [[:Category:Contains monstrous fangs]] is is the only one which is plural, so I can only conclude that Category:Contains monstrous fang is the correct name. Category:Contains sapphire is still there too, what got moved out of there? Singular look correct to me, I'll drop a note on Ab.Er.Rant's talk page to make sure we're right. --Xasxas256 21:49, 9 November 2006 (CST)
Just the only item confirmed to contain sapphires so far. :P Jeweled Daggers - BeXoR Bexor.png 01:48, 10 November 2006 (CST)
Ahem... I wouldn't exactly call myself "master". I merely sort of ... err... made drastic changes to the NPC categories. But if you're looking for opinions, I'd say "Contains monstrous fang" is better, although "Contains Monstrous Fang" would be more appropriate actually... but since the majority uses singular, and that "Contains" is already used instead of "Contain", I'd go the singular forms and del-tag the plural ones ^-^ --Ab.Er.Rant Necromancer (msg Aberrant80) 05:57, 13 November 2006 (CST)
Well there you have it, straight from the dark lord himself (is that better than master? :P ) I told ya he'd know ;) --Xasxas256 06:16, 13 November 2006 (CST)
Thanks guys! I went ahead and made the changes. The capital letters thing I think I will leave for someone else. :P - BeXoR Bexor.png 02:08, 14 November 2006 (CST)

Need a chill pill?[edit source]

What's with the stress, sir? --Karlos 05:03, 21 November 2006 (CST)

Where do I start mate? I got a promotion at work which is good and all but it just means so much stress. I've gotta take responsibility for stuff I've got little to do with, and cop the blame when things I can't control go wrong. This month I've got an ulcer for the first time, yay! I haven't slept properly in weeks and I'm continually drained, not so much physically tired but just really drained. The last two days have been stinking hot, it's more than 30deg cel (86 fahrenheit) in my room at the moment. I need a holiday bad, things are just getting to me at the moment. On a related note a family member is going overseas for a few months which is making me both sad but also really happy for them. *Sigh* I need a real holiday myself, badly, a proper one, not a WikiBreak. I just gotta hold out until Christmas! Sorry for being grouchy, there's just a lot of stuff going on in my life at the moment. Normaly I hit the GuildWiki and forget about life but recently I got into trouble because someone under me was using inappropriate language so the thing on Gravewit's discussion page just pressed my buttons. Anyway I'm off to the airport now but thanks for dropping in Karlos, it's been a while ;) --Xasxas256 05:19, 21 November 2006 (CST)
You could join Karlos on his scenic tour of Elona while he searches every nook and cranny for ebon dust aura, desperately hoping they added it with this update. --Fyren 05:23, 21 November 2006 (CST)
I hope this helps cheer you up! Star-small.png <LordBiro>/<Talk> 06:53, 21 November 2006 (CST)
Eh, it's all water under the bridge already. Actually it was kinda helpful just to see Fyren's post on Tetris L's talk page which just stated that I'm Australian. I think that out of the regular editors, Fyren is the most serious, sorry Fyren, I don't mean to offend! It's probably in part due to the role you play here anyway. But seeing Fyren's calm statement of fact helped clear my head and made me try and look at it objectively and less emotionally. Then Karlos was nice enough to ask me what's up which gave me a chance to just vent a little and cool off.
Then came Fyren's reply which I'm not entirely if he was being serious or not. See I never get you Fyren :P You're not female are you? Cos that would explain my lack of understanding!!!! :P Oh and thanks for the star Lord Biro :D Tonight was a cumulation of lots of things, I don't normally get very worked up on the GuildWiki, so please excuse my behaviour. --Xasxas256 08:48, 21 November 2006 (CST)
Don't worry about it Xasxas, we've all been through it :) <LordBiro>/<Talk> 10:03, 21 November 2006 (CST)
I was just coming to ask you how you are doing, but the discussion above probably answered me as completely as possible. I hope you'll be fine. And it's nice to be editing the wiki with the old people again, especially with you. You're the one who I missed the most during the wiki break.
On a side note: Did you notice that I'm making money with ITG now? I get paid 10 euros per hour for promoting the game and giving some shows in exhibitions and other events. :D --Gem-icon-sm.png (talk) 10:18, 21 November 2006 (CST)
Heya Gem, it's really really good to hear from you again, I've missed you too mate, for me GuildWiki editing isn't the same without you. So are you crazy busy with study these days? I didn't know you were furthering your errrr ITG career, what exactly do you mean that you get paid for "giving some shows in exhibitions". Does that mean you're dancing for money!? What does your better half have to say about that! :P Nah seriously well done, getting decent pay for something you enjoy is a really great :D --Xasxas256 00:13, 22 November 2006 (CST)
Studies? What are your talk... oh yeah, now I remember. ;D Actually my studies are going pretty well and they still take a lot of time, but I'm not taking everything too seriously now so I have some free time too. And yes, I did mean I get money for giving dance performances and promoting the game. The payment is great for something that I really enjoy. :) I'll give you a link to a video from the latest exhibition when we have the video ready. :P Now I'll go and eat something with kalomeli before we need to leave to the uni. --Gem-icon-sm.png (talk) 02:51, 22 November 2006 (CST)
