Item Spells Quick Reference[]

I noticed that Destructive Was Glaive is not in the item spell skills quick reference page - is that an oversight, or deliberate? anyway, just thought i should tell you. Bubbinska 19:58, 20 January 2007 (CST)

Ok thanks for that, technically its not an item spell, i just have no idea what to do with that skill now. -- Xeon 22:35, 20 January 2007 (CST)
I'm pretty sure it is or should be an item spell - you used to be able to give it to allies but they corrected that. Either way i'm a bit bummed that they haven't fixed the animation and stuff. Bubbinska 22:45, 20 January 2007 (CST)
I will add it to the list and put a note in talk about it. -- Xeon 22:48, 20 January 2007 (CST)

That BM page...[]

I edited that part out since I don't know if that section on the mathematics behind it still exists (I couldn't find it at those links). If you can find a way to reword that paragraph to remove those references, feel free to do so. — User:Kyrasantae kyrasantae 02:11, 15 October 2006 (CDT)

I edited this so that it reflects what the attribute description from what guild wars says.

Article naming[]

Don't put "(Alliance Battle)" in a name just because it's for something in ABs. Only use parentheses to distinguish a page from another that could also have the same base name. --Fyren 02:12, 15 October 2006 (CDT)

Was not aware of it, now i am, thanks.

Im not here for a popularity contest, im here to edit pages so that it can benefit other guild wars players. if people cant work out that im a different user then let it be so. If someone wants to take credit for the work i do, shame on them, if they do im sure they will also get caught out.

C3 skills[]

Please go back through the ones you changed again and restub the non-elites which don't have a normal skill trainer and fix the description, stats, and progressions for all of them. You de-{{C3}}'d many but I see people making edits after you that change the skill templates, so you either didn't check that everything is correct or were sloppy. --Fyren 12:58, 5 December 2006 (CST)

Checked all the skills with a priest of Balthazar next to me, the only ones i didnt -c3 were the quests and areas which ill be going around to see today. The only other thing i didnt check was the progression chart to see if it lined up (i used the values that i had set, which were all random like 3, 7, 9) but i was also planning on double checking that today.

Skills That Remove Enchantments That Prevent Spell Targeting[]

Hey there, you may not have realized this, but I put together a list of all of the skills that can remove the Elite Enchantments Vow of Silence, Spell Breaker, Obsidian Flesh, Spell Shield and Shadow Form, and added the list to the "Related Skills" section of every single one of those skills's pages. I wish you would have realized the relation before deleting every single one of the lists, because now I have to go back and revert and fix all those edits. I'd appriciate if you'd spend a little more time on the pages before you delete the "Related Skills" sections from them completely, and think a little more about the correlations between skills. Thanks! Duncan Dragoon 22:55, 9 December 2006 (CST)

Can i suggest you change that, when further releases of GW come out, that list may get very long. I did look over the list to attempt to simplify the list on many of the pages, while i was brutal on a number of them, this is a wiki and if the community thinks other wise they will change it back. Anyway, can i suggest you put these some way into the quick reference enchantment removal page. Also can you be careful when you revert pages, you riped up a lot of the formating on some of the pages, because i did change the formats on a few. Xeon 05:28, 10 December 2006 (CST)
I'm re-removing the list. Related skills lists should be NOWHERE near that long. If you want to make a new QR page, go ahead, but don't list 18 related. --Fyren 06:42, 10 December 2006 (CST)
Cut them down from 1 to 6 each, though I think 6 is still on the too-long side. --Fyren 07:30, 10 December 2006 (CST)

I'd like to make a page like the enchantment removal quick reference page that lists them, but I'm not in the know how about how to do that, could you two help? I do agree that is seems too long, but it's valuable information to know what removes Spell Breaker and the like. Duncan Dragoon 21:14, 10 December 2006 (CST)

Fyren will be able to help you with that, he will also know the correct way to display the template and what should be listed in it. Xeon 21:18, 10 December 2006 (CST)
It might be easier to just use the same template with an intro paragraph at the top explaining which skills prevent spells and that all of the items are either non-spells or don't directly target the foe. If you really want, I can make a template specific to it given what you want it to be like. --Fyren 08:27, 11 December 2006 (CST)

I want to add categories for Bounty[]

How do I add more locations to that page? I really want to help as much as possible. AlpHaz 12 December 2006

Add the following code to the bottom: [[Category:Sunspear Bounties]] <-- Note that I'm not sure if that's the name of the category. Double check what the category's called and then have fun. --Armond Warblade Warrior(talk) 20:31, 12 December 2006 (CST)
Go to Bounty page, you will see a list of all bounties in the game. To add a bounty to an area put at the bottom, [[Category:Offers Mandragor Hunt]] replace the Mandragor Hunt section with the name of the bounty you wish to add. For example, you would then have for giant beast monsters this [[Category:Offers Monster Hunt]]. Make sure there is a person to give you a bounty in this area before you add it. The bounty page also needs to be fixed up, demon hunt was originally margonite hunt, when i screwed up the name of it, the category page needs to be changed to reflect this and the interface still looks shockingly crap, I was having a look at the Miniature page, at the gallery at the bottom. I was thinking about making something like that before i saw the gallery, so now its just a matter of copy pasting and formating the tables again. Xeon 00:32, 13 December 2006 (CST)

The recommendation that was removed from Natural Stride's page suggested getting an anti-Spell Enchantment before activating Natural Stride. This prevents opponents from adding any new Hexes and allows someone to have faster running speed and 50% chance to block without being able to be easily removed.

It also correctly referred to Natural Stride as a skill (Stance). Why was this removed? GrammarNazi

The current aim for the qr i think, is to change all of the current ones that are embedded into other pages into this format and placed in one category. Invinci monks dont just use SoJ, they can use IW and Spoil Victor but a qr based around, reaction if hit may be viable. The spammable one i would not put in at all, mainly because you have a lot of non spam ones that work just as well on dervish and it would not be maintained by anyone in the future. The qr's being developed atm are ones based around a type of effect, like energy recovery, attack speed, skills that add armor. These type of skills dont have fine lines of when to be added or not, as will spammable skills, you would have the problem of deciding what guide lines should be used. I think because of that, a spammable qr is not viable and should be put into a guide if anything, sorry if any of this is wrong, wrote it quick, im getting offline and going to work. -- Xeon 20:20, 23 January 2007 (CST)

LOL!!!! Oops, he made a big wannabe pro mistake. He brought Dolyak Signet intead what should be there, heal sig. (BTW, I think your Koss's elite armor has gone to his head)
Now Goren, on the other hand, well, he spent TOO much time with that Mesmer! Look at what he had on his skill bar when I got him! (and note how he isn't sure WHICH skill to use) Queen Schmuck 01:46, 3 February 2007 (CST)
Nah did that on purpose, heal sig isnt really a bad skill, there is nothing like a 75% slower wammo with no strength at all because all the points are sapped by healing prayers. -- Xeon 01:49, 3 February 2007 (CST)
Ah, I see your point. In that case, might as well have skill #1 be Power Attack and skill #2 be Ethereal Light. Oh, and make sure to have a heal req 12 off-hand with +15/-1 or -33% dazed core. No need wasting precious points into tactics for a puny shield that gives no extra energy. =:P Queen Schmuck 01:59, 3 February 2007 (CST)
Choice of my wammo skill bar is because. #1 Tried using gash without bleeding? #2 Final Thrust sucks when you cant get their health below 50%, #3 Frenzy... self explanatory, #4 Dolyak Signet slows you by 75% and pretty much no armor bonus with 0 strength, #5 Healing Breeze + warr...., #6 Mending what this build is built around, #7 Healing Hands cant do without it on a wammo, #8 Rebirth works best in Alliance Battles. ;D ~(If this conversation on the best wammo is going to continue, please do so on my talk page, so we dont pollute this talk page with unrelated messages) -- Xeon 02:30, 3 February 2007 (CST)

ROFLMAO! My sides are hurting and tears are rolling down! I must admit, you really put some thought into this build. The AB rebirth just takes the cake, and didn't even notice the Gash (just assumed it was Sever). Now, for really making your build best, and since Frenzy will be used all the time (why put it on bar if you're not going to use it every chance you get!), maybe Barb Slice will work even better. Doh!, that actually will do extra damage.

I guess I kneel before you, oh great master of Wammos. My humble attempts at Pro Wammo builds will never come close to your mastery. May Balthazar smile upon you (without breaking out in laughter).

BTW, the "Goren" wammo pick was taken on some solo Ettin run of mine (needed the runes for heroes!). The skills used are actually quite fast at taking out the Ettins quickly. Alternative for SaM would of course be Final Blow, but I like the nearly always dual crits of SaM while they are using their Heal Sig. I also like the constant full adren (from AP) allowing Bonetti's at anytime I wish (especially right before taking on the Tengu, any of them). The "all skills currently trying to be used at same time" effect was because of a Lag Monster I failed to slay that run.

Queen Schmuck 02:56, 3 February 2007 (CST)

I would like to see someone beat that or at least improve on my build, to compile the best wammo build ever. I was looking at that goren bar of yours and thought it looked ok for farming, heh, when auspicious parry was 0sec recharge it blew melee bosses away. anyway I Dare someone to created a better wammo, only requirement is it needs to be a W/Mo. -- Xeon 03:06, 3 February 2007 (CST)
I would normally run Liv Vic (not WS), but I had a tendancy to go Skeleton farming (lots of runes there too). WS was to help counter the poison.
I had always wished AP would recharge itself if a block quickly happens after use. I guess I never used Ausp before the nerf, it always had a two second delay before it would charge itself on block (just checked, that nerf was early 2006-06, over two months before I even owned GW). Bummer, it must have been absolutely da bomb back then.
Dropping Vig Spirit just before any encounter with a Tengu Wild helped against their Shatter (HH recharge unusable). This build was somewhat weak if facing 2 Wilds at same time (bad aggro), unless you were really quick on the VS reload. Energy was never a problem for me, 20 was more than enough (disturb a lynx or two if needed for Bonetti's energy top off). See User:Queen Schmuck/W/Mo Rune Collector.
I might take you up on your Wammo challenge. Question - do all skills have to be for same warrior's weapon type? :P Queen Schmuck 03:38, 3 February 2007 (CST)
Yes, it has to be logically correct but a dumb combination (or smart if you can make the "best" wammo) I was just thinking about the Echo mending and only just realized that you cant use Warr + Echo + Mending *cries*.

I am relatively new to the site but am a professional programmer/designer with 12 years experience. I do this stuff as a hobby as well as for a living so it was only a matter of time before I started to want to work on projects here.

The Turtle King : There is no Honor without Faith, Compassion and Loyalty 12:26, 14 April 2007 (CDT)

For starters your going to have to expand on your description for the template idea, how would it function? what would be used to trigger its gray and colored state? how will people know what the gray and colored states mean? Will you let people select only necro skills? There are a limited number of missions compared to skills, using the same 0,1,2 trigger template system for the elite listing may get hard to read when trying to find the one skill you want to change. -- Xeon 12:35, 14 April 2007 (CDT)

Re:Optional fields. I saw that, but I decided to use the option to add the extra information anyway eg uploader's comments and so on, as one can't overdocument, and also it may encourage others to include more information. The extra details are as much for others outside of the GuildWiki community as for those within. It is a nice touch to keep it all within the license box 12:48, 5 May 2007 (CDT)
Heh, you had the <optional:blah> which is what i was commenting on, those dont need to be seen and the author defaults to image uploader for a reason, when the picture gets changed, it will have a new author normally the person that uploaded, its used only when you want to over write the it because you know the author is not the uploader. -- Xeon 12:53, 5 May 2007 (CDT)
I see what you mean - I wasn't looking at the licenses after applying them, so didn't see that. Templates are not my field of expertise :) I will check the others and correct. 12:55, 5 May 2007 (CDT)
Yeah, i still have not written up the documentation, im hoping to do that later tonight or tomorrow. I still need to wait for the reply from anet to see what license we can apply to the screenshots, so nothing much happens till this. That and we need someone that knows law to fix up the license notes. -- Xeon 13:02, 5 May 2007 (CDT)


Do you not think it would be more sensible to apply the unattributed template to these images simply to categorize them into one easily-accessed area for later licensing purposes? The template could be changed to state that they are in a "holding" status, not a deletion queue, and then as time permits helpful souls will be able to dip into that category and a=apply attribution or contact the uploader. It just seems to me that this would be a more efficient case of time and motion than going through the entire directory of files later. 13:44, 5 May 2007 (CDT)

At the moment no, because there may be an automatic way to do it, so adding templates and the such is not an option just for the moment. Whats worse is, the templates have not been finalized so what is there may be different to what is going to be used officially, which means a lot of uneeded doubling of work. -- Xeon 13:49, 5 May 2007 (CDT)

Another example of why we need someone that knows the copyright issues like the back of their hand. heh -- Xeon 13:55, 5 May 2007 (CDT)
Surmounting that obstacle is the challenge unfortunately faced by the vast majority of websites who do not have access to the terrifying sums of money that copyright lawyers demand for their services. Acquiring a tame specialist prepared to work pro bono is indeed a rarity. Also, as you can see, copyright law is complex and occasionally ambiguous; even were a specialist willing to undertake voluntarily to act for eg GuildWiki, they would invariably state from the outset that their guidance did not constitute legal advice, should not be regarded as legal advice and would accept no responsibility for any subsequent actions. Which makes it fairly worthless after the fact. GuildWiki is probably best advised to err on the side of caution with any ambiguous issues, and operate under the blanket of good faith. By demonstrating a willingness to correctly label the works of others and deal with blatant violations, how can anybody argue that they are operating otherwise? It is very unlikely that any interested party would do more than ask that an individual instance of a copyright violation be removed immediately. Overall, instilling a work-ethic whereby all contributors add a copyright template, to their best of their understanding, is as much as anyone would expect. If you consider the skill, creative effort, time and money invested in producing material, which may then be wasted if it is open to other parties to use or exploit without paying the creator, it isn't really too much to ask. 15:09, 5 May 2007 (CDT)
We dont need a lawyer, we need someone that knows the copyright licenses, i do not have the time to do it.

Images yet again.[]

Since you didn't bother to reply on my talk page I decided to come here and point out a few things:

1) "Please review GuildWiki:Image use policy and add a copyright tag to their image description page." - The Image use policy doesn't say anything, about "Image copyright tags". Linking people there server so purpose, since images without any tags are currently 100% allowed by the policies.

2) You are linking to Wikipedia. We are not Wikipedia. Linking the definition of copyright is OK, but linking to any policies is bad.

3) Not only that, but the tone of that message looks like you should add the tags that are listed on the Wikipedia page, whereas we don't have them. We have very different ones.

4) Finally, the link to everything with "Image:" is bad, since not only can it be very confusing what image did you have in mind if the person uploaded a lot of them, but that link also contains images in which you edited the text, not the image itself making the list even longer. Just list the images. It will make it easier for everyone.

Poki#3 My Talk Page :o, 18:08, 13 May 2007 (CDT)

I fixed all of those except for the first one and last one, im not writing it as policy till anet reply about the status of their "screenshots" including ripped images. What i did recently, was a test run of a 500 image sample to see what problems would come out of the system. Which is when i discovered the problem with 2) and 3) and fixed that issue, as well as a few other problems, including people uploading images again to put copyright tags and other minor issues. I leave all my updated comments about this project at GuildWiki talk:Image attribution project.
About the 4th point, there will be over 22000 images to go through by people, linking to each image is just not an option, as with the case with lordbiro, he has uploaded over 300 or so images, this would destroy his talk page and would serve no advantage compared to the listing of all Image: files for that person. Remember that these files have to be individually check by an administrator before they they will be deleted. If an uploader does not pick up on the unattributed image or error the admin will and take the required steps to extend the unattributed tag a further 7 days and warn the uploader. I also did a time comparison, to manually do all these files. Around 500 images took 1 hours 20 minutes, with over 22000 images, that comes to about 60 hours in total spent on adding the tags. Adding each image to a talk page increases that by a further 10 seconds for each image, which will double the required time.
im sorry about not replying on your talk page as i might have been asleep when it went past my recent changes and it was not brought to my attention afterwards. If i did not answer your questions or you have further questions please post them here or at the project page. -- Xeon 00:12, 14 May 2007 (CDT)

The Skills You've changed just recently so it says you can get the skill in beknur harboor is not necessary i think. Falafel 12:03, 1 July 2007 (CDT)

As part of the s&f im adding the skills that are on istan, when my brother finally gets my second account off the island i will check all the other skills. see GuildWiki:Style and formatting/Skills. -- Xeon 12:08, 1 July 2007 (CDT)

Ok. so it is necessary. ^^ Falafel 12:10, 1 July 2007 (CDT)

That is still to be challenged though, all the skills that Tohn have in Kamadan are everywhere else on the island that i have seen so far. -- Xeon 12:13, 1 July 2007 (CDT)

Check event time Template[]

The time calculation seems to be off by about 1/2 hour. I did some testing using the preview on the Dragon Event 2007 schedule table and at 4:15 PDT I got the cell to change to red by shifting the time back 30 minutes. Any further back and they went gray. Either that or the time on the Wiki server is off.-- Glamtre Axe-icon-right.png (Contribs) 18:34, 6 July 2007 (CDT)

I fixed this, something was changed server side after i made the script, it works now. To update the row, you need to purge the article which a link can be found in the talk page. -- Xeon 08:31, 7 July 2007 (CDT)

My sig[]

Has the page been fixed to wiki's satisfaction? I can't get the template to appear while the redirect is there, but it's in the code. Thought I'd just check, since you haven't responded on my page. GDSig.JPG 02:19, 9 July 2007 (CDT)

Yep its fine, i dont normally go back and check talk pages, sorry about that. Most of the time if they have problems they contact me after. -- Xeon 02:25, 9 July 2007 (CDT)


Hi! I noticed that you have uploaded many skill icons for luxon/kurz skills. I just wondered where did you get the original files from? and if you still have original files, could you please provide a link or something Gcardinal 23:03, 13 July 2007 (CDT)


Welcome to the sysop team. —Tanaric 00:14, 1 August 2007 (CDT)

Thank you, unexpected but appreciated. -- Xeon 00:28, 1 August 2007 (CDT)

So, do what you want with the skill box templates. The test copy with progressions and icons for K/L stuff is still in the sandbox where I left it. Also, there are perl modules that deal specifically with MW. At the very least, if you really want to get page text and parse it yourself with LWP, use action=raw to just get the page's wikitext. --Fyren 02:29, 1 August 2007 (CDT)

I knew about the MW modules, perl isnt one of my stronger languages so i tried to learn a few things while doing these. action=raw will be very useful later. -- Xeon 02:40, 1 August 2007 (CDT)
Congrats mate, I'm outta town atm so I don't have much time but wd ;) --Xasxas256 02:52, 2 August 2007 (CDT)

Just got back into town and it seem like most of the admin team is too busy squabbling (or pretending not to) over at the other wiki; there's a noticeable lack of thanks here :( Even above Fyren didn't say thanks but then again he's such a pro we'll excuse him! Anyway I'm pretty sure every other admin has filled in GuildWiki_talk:Administrators#Table_of_info so you might like to as well, even if it's a little out of date and probably nobody looks at it, until you've carved your name into there you're not a real admin yet! :P --Xasxas256 08:02, 4 August 2007 (CDT)

hello, oh ok, ill do that later today. Im not changing from what i do normally much, just trying to maintain the article quality here. I noticed a large number of them over at the other wiki, thats their choice, i will prob move over when GW2 comes out because i dont see an alternative being created when the official one will be integrated into the game. It's sad that fyren doesn't hang around anymore, he would always fix my small mistakes, now i have to triple check everything i do :( -- Xeon 08:22, 4 August 2007 (CDT)
Yeah and in true Fyren style he's written that notice on his talk page instead of his user page! I'll have to write something nice for him on his talk page, end of an era really... :( --Xasxas256 10:10, 4 August 2007 (CDT)


Why did you put a fair use policy on my image of the Account Login Pane? I've never seen a FUP any other image before. --Hawk SkeerHawkicon.png 21:04, 2 August 2007 (CDT)

Future: Mark all core skills as stubs + need eotn trainer[]

Since Eotn is a level-20 expansion and not a standalone chapter, I would be surprised if it will have trainers for core skills. elites, however, will probably have new capping spots. (thanks for deleting my pages). Foo 15:18, 4 August 2007 (CDT)

no problem, yeah i know, i wrote that a while ago but im leaving it there just in case they have some weird system so i dont forget. -- Xeon 15:21, 4 August 2007 (CDT)
Another thing this brings to mind, is that some kind of a warning or a note should be made in pages of eotn bosses with non-core elites, (or skills at all), telling players that even though they can cap it, they can't use it if they don't have the proper chapter. Foo 15:41, 4 August 2007 (CDT)
You don't know that yet, maybe people who have GW:EN and capture skills that are not core or not exclusive to EotN can still use them because they own this expansion. It's good that you think about this but let's just wait and see. --- :Jill Bioskop X(T|C) 17:59, 8 August 2007 (CDT)

Random Question[]

If you're the anon of a talkpage topic with no replies, why can't you remove it? O_O The Imperialist

General talk page rule, nothing is ever removed in the main namespace talk pages, its either archived or you strike it out. For small edits like that, it doesn't matter but for consistency its done to every talk section removal. Things like expanding, spelling and technical figures you got wrong editing in a current section is generally fine though. User talk space do not have this restriction but out of politeness you archive your page instead of blanking. Also comments by people are not normally striked out by another person, by logging in as a user your IP is hidden, so it may be you or not. -- Xeon 00:42, 5 August 2007 (CDT)
Okay ^^ Thanks for clearing that up ;) The Imperialist

I took a look at the elite skill check list you linked me. I must say it was nice but not really what I was looking for. I just don’t think it flows well with the style of userpage I am trying to build.
