Ohaider. Welcome to this 'Wiki. Hope you enjoy your time here. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask ^^ --- Ohaider!-- (s)talkpage 18:33, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi there, thanks :) Think I have the hang of it (though will probably prove myself wrong by putting this reply in the wrong place...). Suicidal Tendencie 18:40, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Heh, don't worry. You did just fine :) Although we usually indent our comments by using a Colon ( : ) when responding to someone. Just place x+1 colons in the beginning of your comment to indent, where x is the number of colons the user before you had. If this is confusing, sorry, I fail at explaining stuff :P --- Ohaider!-- (s)talkpage 18:43, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
Told you I'd fluff it. Why does my damn Dell keyboard seem to remove my attempts to sign my comments?Suicidal Tendencie 18:45, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
I have no idea at all. I use an ancient Micro$oft keyboard. *always thought it was either Logitech or IBM O_o *, which can't even place accents on a letter. So I just use the Button sig.png Magical Sign Button *heavenly music and choir*. Always does the trick for me, unless I forget to click it (or click it when editing a Userpage. Yes I did that once >.> Or twice... ) --- Ohaider!-- (s)talkpage 18:50, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

It's my first day.... no, really.

Er... hi all, tried a few things, failed miserably. If someone could tell me how to get "Intro" on a new line I'd be extremely grateful. Maybe one day I'll be good at this....nah, doubt it. Suicidal Tendencie 18:49, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Try adding {{clear}} above the header. That should do the trick. --- Ohaider!-- (s)talkpage 18:50, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Gone

I've left so don't bother trying to contact me, you're all pathetic, lay off Gravewit and get a life. -->Suicidal Tendencie 16:48, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

In all honesty, no one is "laying on" Gravewit. Until you started up discussions on the talk page, no one else was even paying a whim of attention to it. It is extremely old news... and no one really cares anymore. I don't know why you are beating this dead horse. -- Isk8.png I~sk8 (T/C) 16:52, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
Seriously? You're leaving because people you don't know have an opinion of someone else you don't know over a situation that occurred over half a year ago? I don't think it's us that need to get a life, but anyways... There's more to the wiki than just Gravewit, so come back whenever --Dr R. Phalange 16:55, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Anyone else hoping Gravewit or someone else does another version of this?

Remembered why I don't like the Official one... and discovered another reason. They both have the same flaw. Floating about on the Internet with anyone being able to edit them/join as users/be an asshole means there's a lot of... people who are probably not worth having around. I'm beginning to think the GW:YAV should be looked at again. And one last ditched attempt (I do NOT want replies to this, but will get some anyway) anyone look @ GW:YAV and the things said about Gravewit? It raises a point. That point will get me abuse. Ah well. -->Suicidal Tendencie 14:35, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

It's a wiki. Anyone is allowed to edit them, it's how a wiki works. Bug My Talk 14:44, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Can you see how that can be a weakpoint? -->Suicidal Tendencie 14:57, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
It absolutely is- the very premise of a wiki is based on the supposition that every member of the community works toward the betterment of the site. In reality, this isn't the case, so we have to settle for what we can get. Felix Omni Signature.png 14:59, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
You got abuse over that as well if I remember rightly. Abuse you didn't deserve I might add. Ever notice admins fail to treat all cases equally? -->Suicidal Tendencie 15:05, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
I do appreciate your sentiment, but in the interest of peace and no more headaches I won't comment beyond this- we are all only human. Everyone would like to believe that the people running the wiki are capable of making completely fair, rational, and unbiased decisions 100% of the time, but again, when reality meets fantasy reality always wins. Felix Omni Signature.png 15:10, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Actually I just thought, I better add this. I've a tendency to try and defend people I feel are getting a hard time, I wasn't trying to stir something up by saying that or trying to create "drama". -->Suicidal Tendencie 15:50, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
People generally receive a hard time for a reason; in this case, a very good reason. --Dr R. Phalange 16:09, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
You think the actions of somebody should lead to the basic foundations of how people interact with each other, including, but not limited to, the GW:NPA and GW:YAV, being forgotten and you, in your position here, think that that is how it should be and support that idea? -->Suicidal Tendencie 16:15, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
When one person acts against everyone else on the wiki, screw policy. The wiki comes first and if policy comes in the way of that, get rid of policy. If everyone feels the need to act against policy, you can be sure there's a damn good reason. --Dr R. Phalange 16:21, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
So what you're saying is, if I mentioned I was a fan of Green Day, and got really unpopular because of that, according to you, as everyone feels the same, they are free to ignore ideas such as the 2 mentioned above, GW:NPA and GW:YAV. Correct me if I'm wrong please. -->Suicidal Tendencie 16:24, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Gain some perspective. Whether or not you like Green Day has no effect on the workings of a wiki. Illegally selling out to someone who screws the wiki over and over behind the collective backs of the whole community ruins a wiki. --Dr R. Phalange 16:32, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
I don't presume to be a legal expert, if it is, why don't you get one to look into it as you clearly feel so strongly on the matter?-->Suicidal Tendencie 16:35, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Frankly because it happened almost a year ago in situations I wasn't here for, and also because I have a little nagging feeling that Wikia has better lawyers than the guy down the street. I'm only responding to you because of your need to dig this up again. --Dr R. Phalange 16:42, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
I made my feelings clear that I think they're not always kept it mind... we were having a fine discussion until YOU brought it back up, I merely used an example. -->Suicidal Tendencie 16:44, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, I think I just got thrown off by the fact that this was a discussion on Gravewit and policy, and how policy was ignored when giving him a hard time. --Dr R. Phalange 16:51, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
That was, honestly, an example, it was meant as nothing more. -->Suicidal Tendencie 16:53, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Two points: One, GW:YAV in practice amounts to "don't pull (lack of) rank". Nothing else. You may have been thinking about GW:AGF, and even this only goes so far: you can't abolish thoughtlessness by policy, and you can't forbid people interpreting the actions they think they perceive, even if the only thing that conects them with the person they feel sure about knowing about is some wiki software operating at typing speed. We're just personas here, and how you react to me will shape how I play my persona in this corner of the net. Exaggeration is the norm, unfortunately.
Point two: the very premise of a wiki is based on the supposition that every member of the community works toward the betterment of the site. (Felix, emphasis mine) No, it is not. If it was, there'd be no need for a history. The premise of the wiki is that the majority of users works toward the betterment of some part of the site, that they even out those with ill will and correct their mistakes, hopefully not stirring up too much drama along the way. I've had at least two severe differences of opinion with Pan Sola, and if we'd both been other members of this wiki, we'd have been all over the wiki with that. But we're not, and I'm proud of that, and respect PanSola for it. It would be easy to come to the conclusion that if we disagree, one of us must not be working to the betterment of the wiki. If you're used to binary logic, that must be true. But in fact it is not true, we both are, even though that may not be apparent.
From what I've read, Gravewit thought he was working for the betterment of the wiki. He felt unable to bear the responsibility of keeping the Wiki financially viable and thought that wikia were in the best position to guarantee that. He made the mistake of underestimating community politics - and this is the real drawback (as far as I can see) to Wikis. Since it is basically an open, ad-hoc community, you never know which edits or decisions blow up in your face and cause you to spend energy on discussions. The advantage is that you can do it to others: you can question their edits and learn from what they tell you with the energy they give you. Whatever policies there are serve mainly to ensure that this energy is harnessed as effectively as possible. Those who hate Gravewit and take no effort to understand the situation he was in won't profit from the experience when they are in the same situation - when it is their lone decision that blows up in their face unexpectedly. And believe me, as soon as you're editing on a wiki, that is what happens.
It is to some degree mitigated by the people who have formed a community sticking up for each other, i.e. people will support each other on issues (and this is what looks like a YAV violation) because they've been through the issues before, and it means that someone else gets the blast in the face. But if you do that too much, the wiki gets stale. If you can come to a wiki, raise a ruckus and people take you seriously, you can start bettering the wiki. With gusto! And that is why I am still editing here.
This has turned out to be quite a sermon on wikis. "Wall of Text", as we call it nowadays. Preaching for hope and faith in Wiki. The reason is probably that this is what I am learning at this time, coming to learn the meaning of wiki. If that means I have to stand up and preach hope and faith in the wiki, so be it. You may sit down now, sermon's over. --mendel 18:10, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
The basic idea of a wiki is that if you want thousands of pages of information, that's far too much for any single person to do. Furthermore, no single person has the necessary expertise to write all of the pages. Instead, allowing anyone to edit things lets a lot of different people add their own pieces gets a lot more information up. Even that often isn't enough, though, and I don't just mean on minor details. Even a couple years after release, the pages on Dunes of Despair and Vizunah Square were pretty pathetic. Most of the GWEN dungeons have little to no tactical information on their pages, though having not tried them, I suppose it's plausible that they're just easy enough that it doesn't matter. And it's not a case of competition from the official wiki, either; find a place where something is woefully incomplete on this wiki, check the official wiki, and usually that one will be even worse.
Allowing everyone to edit things seems dangerous, but the group that cares the most tends to win out. For vandalism, this works pretty well, because a lot of people who want the vandalism gone collectively care more about it than one isolated vandal who doesn't particularly care and will be banned soon anyway.
Where it really breaks down is when it's technical information that few people know about, and in a domain that many care about. Hot political issues where the facts aren't entirely known are the worst case of this that I know of; a long wiki page on global warming or the war in Iraq would be almost certain to contain some bad information if the wiki is popular and the page isn't protected. In a computer game where most factual claims can be easily verified or refuted by a large number of people, that situation tends not to come up too much. Quizzical 19:10, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Quizzical, in your summary you write: "another version of this?:" And start over on content entirely? No thanks. You know that we can take the content with us, right? The problem is going to be taking the community. --mendel 19:30, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Delete Tag issue

The admin noticeboard will be archived. It always is.

Just stop posting there and let the issue die down. If you have thoughts about the people posting there, you can take it to their talkpage, where the public scrutiny isn't so harsh and there's a better chance to come to an understanding.

Why did the problem arise? I think what you didn't understand was that you are as good an editor as any of us. You feel that there should be a standard for what is written to articles, but didn't hold yourself up to that standard when you wrote to the talk page. Whether Felix copying you verbatim was just his sly way of pointing that out, or whether his standards are lower than yours, I honestly can't say. What I can say (from experience) is that if you want the writing on this wiki to be of a certain standard, you have to pitch in and do your part. There may be conflicts as you discover cases where your standards might conflict with community standards, but with luck those will be few. I think you know this.

Have you by now learned how to use Template:Cleanup? If not, I'll be happy to explain. Other than that, I see no reason why you couldn't have placed that yourself. This being a wiki means you have as much right as the next guy to do that, your age doesn't matter, and if what you did is not consensus, it will be reverted, but that's life on the wiki and no-one will think worse of you for that.

Happy editing! --mendel 13:14, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

I consider Talk Pages and certain other pages to be...less formal...than actual pages, e.g. one for a boss. Mendel, very few people automatically know how to do things before doing them, it would have been my first time to place such a template, and hence I did not know how to do so. -->Suicidal Tendencie 16:21, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Yes, thank you for confirming my guess (even if you haven't answered the question, but that's ok). Your "hence" is slightly illogical because if you don't do things you don't know how to do, your first time doing anything you must know how to do it else you wouldn't be doing it. But that's recreational sophistry, I do understand your point. --mendel 23:40, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
I don't know how I confirmed your guess (or for the record...what guess?), I would point out you seem to be lacking when it comes to communication. You know what you're saying, you're the one saying it, but you do not really convey the message. All I understood from the above was that you understood my point, if someone doesn't tell me how to do something new to me, there is no way of me know how to do the thing in question.
I would add that the problem arose because, from my point of view, I asked the community for help. The response was, from my point of view, Felix, as a memeber of the community, mocking me when all I tried to do was help that community by trying to help with an article, despite the fact what needed to be done required knowledge of wiki-what-not.
I never did say I was going to be doing it though...look at the wording again. It would have been my first time. It would have been if I knew how to do it. Which, the point explains, as you said you understand, I did not. -->Suicidal Tendencie 22:18, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
I really do feel terrible that you took this so personally. Felix Omni Signature.png 23:36, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
My guess was that the reason you hadn't placed the tag yourself was because you didn't know how to do it, and you confirmed that implicitly with your response.
Doesn't the mindset of if someone doesn't tell me how to do something ..., there is no way of me [to] know how to do [it] impair your gaming experience horribly? For me, that's the fun in playing the game: to find out things on my own and experiment with new ideas. --mendel 06:12, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
Mendel, of course in the game that's the case but... I fail to see how that means I'm supposed to know how to do a template I've never used/watched someone use etc. -->Suicidal Tendencie 10:22, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
For one, you're not "supposed to". Wikiediting is completely voluntary, and if you want to keep on pointing improvable articles out in talk pages, that's just fine, and a small but valuable contribution to the wiki.
The advantage of this being a wiki is that you can find out if you want to. The wiki is a culture of the word, almost everything anybody knows about this wiki is written down somewhere, it's just a matter of finding it. This requires skill in navigating a hypertext using the links and the search tool to find the information you need. Sometimes some experimentation is necessary, too. From an existing notice seen elsewhere or deft navigation one might stumble upon Category:Templates/Notices. Learning to use the information retrieval possibilities this wiki provides helps here, much as learning a game helps play it. Advanced Wiki users will know to use "What links here" to find pages of interest; e.g. for notice templates this gives a list of pages that bear the notice in question.
The most advanced course on finding information is probably Fravia's Searchlores site.
Oh, and you can always ask people, of course. I find that approach is most fruitful when I have first tried to find the information on my own. --mendel 13:30, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
I do edit myself, I just didn't know how to make the template, it's not that big a deal... -_- -->Suicidal Tendencie 16:12, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm sorry to bother you, but would you mind considering using the 'preview' button a bit more ? It's a bit messy with all your edits showing up in the RC list. -- Merty sign.gif-- ( talk ) 11:21, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

As it stands I will only be (every once in a while) updating the list when I've the time, with the skills themselves, with the name being a link. That would be very helpful, and would serve to illustrate it very well, but at this time I don't plan on investing that much time on my little side project (God knows going through Monster skills, PvE skills, and skills by attribute takes a little time).

Re: Weapon for new MoR build

Okay, I took a look through the axe skins and the Fiery Blade Axe looks pretty nice. I don't really care about the requirement so long as it's 12 or under. Not too picky on upgrades, either; of Enchanting or of Defense are good, though. On the inscription front, I Have the Power! and Guided by Fate are both great. Thanks again! Qing Guang 04:50, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

I have a req 13 I don't use, want that to equip it and see if it goes with your armor? You do know that's not animated and 2D right? (Just checking) btw, if you want to talk to me in game my Necro uses my wikia name :-) -->Suicidal Tendencie 13:10, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Unfortunately it's an ele wanting the axe, so she can't have anything that requires runes to use. And I don't mind that it's not animated; I just think it looks cool. Qing Guang 06:38, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
see if it goes with your armor :P
One of my friends has one that he'll sell me when he can figure out how much they're worth (he just spent 500k on Zaishen Chest and needs the cash) so I'll have a req 9 one soon, just thought you might want to make sure it suits the ele first, that's all :P -->Suicidal Tendencie 11:54, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
Oh haha slow on the uptake. I might want to check that, yeah, although just from looking at the image it looks like it would go alright with her standard fire outfit, orange-dyed Shing Jea armor. Qing Guang 17:08, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
Well I still have to get the r9 one, so I just thought it's worth a try (no point getting something you don't like. That's another thing, if you don't like the skin, please do tell me. -->Suicidal Tendencie 20:12, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
Well, I'm late getting back to you but anyway I certainly like how it looks from what we have here on wiki, and I've only ever disliked something I've liked here once (and that was my small mistake with the Elonian armor for my para, and was mainly due to the deceptive /attention pose). And judging from screens of my armor and the screens of the skin, if I dye the handle orange it will match my Fire Magic armor set perfectly. Qing Guang 17:47, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, sorry 'bout delay, trying to get hold of my friend who appears to have been distracted by RL over the holidays. Only know him on GW so can't do much about that. Should see more of him soon though. -->Suicidal Tendencie 17:50, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
That's okay, I've been taking a break from that character for a bit; been dungeon-running with my GL. Plus, that character's been running /A for a bit while I cap up all the Factions elites for sins. I'll probably revert to War once I've got all those. Qing Guang 18:49, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Delete Tag?

Hi all, I know the delete tag is generally how us lower beings delete pages, but is that the appropriate way to delete a User:Example/Blah_Blah page, or do we delete our own waffling? Thanx for helping me understand policy ^^ -->Suicidal Tendencie 19:38, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, a delete tag would be how you request a userspace page to be deleted (even though it's your userspace, your account still doesn't have the ability to delete articles), usually with "User request" as the rationale. Felix Omni Signature.png 19:40, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Well, to be exact, "user request" is what the sysop writes when he/she deletes yor page, you just say {{delete|I don't need this any more}}, preferably on an otherwise blank page that has no links leading to it. --◄mendel► 06:20, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
Alternatively, what many people do these days is simply bypass the tag altogether, blanking the page and leaving a message "Delete plz" or such. Directly contacting an admin can also work. (I say this because truthfully, I have not seen a delete tag used for a loooooong time) Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 07:09, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
Rly now. Needs more Delete Log checking imo. Felix Omni Signature.png 07:14, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, it doesn't matter how you contact the admin, it's just that the delete tag is the one way that's guaranteed to work eventually. --◄mendel► 07:32, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
I would still recommend using the delete tag over contacting an individual admin- the delete tag adds the given article to Category:Candidates for deletion, which has a convenient sidebar link for sysops in Monaco (and can be java'd in with Monobook) and thus can be deleted by any admin passing through, as opposed to waiting for the single admin you might choose to contact instead.

No I wasn't offended, though slightly bemused when you seemed to brag about your superior experience, though that in turn was a spin-off from me giving it a shot in the first place.
I thought Felix helping was a really good display of the community coming together for a laugh and to be social. Not to offend you here, I felt on this occasion he was rather better at it than you were, though I do appreciate this message and certainly won't die bearing a grudge over 1 or 2 comments. (Apart from anything else, bearing a grudge against the head of a site or the most popular on a site is a bad idea.

WoW

NOOOOOOO!!!!! Don't leave us! But seriously, WoW's crap. A friend of mine traded in GW for WoW, and wanted me to try it out too, so I played the 10 day trail. I got bored after 4 days, playing about 1 hour each day. The main part I dislike about it is that there's no actual storyline. Yeah, there are some quests with storylines, but not a main storyline like in GW, that actually urges you to play on and makes it more interresting. In WoW it's like: do all quests in this region, try to find the next region, do all quests there, etc. It's possible ofcourse that in later stages it's not like that anymore, but that's what I experienced in the trial. So before you actually buy it, play the trail and then decide wether it's worth the crapload of monthly money. (although I do like the names ^.^)--El Nazgir sig.pngEl_Nazgir 07:44, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

1) Thanx for the comment about the names :D Thinking of actually naming the Druid Izzy Goes Ursan, though.
2) You have to understand... people post those annoying userboxs about things like playing 1.2 hours a day (as though someone cares... 1.2 hours a day is NOT a big deal ffs). I've played more than 3.9k hours in 20 months, and frankly am scared to work out my average a day.
3) Also, most of my RL friends do play WoW... so that's another incentive, atm, I've spent the last 3 weeks blowing 700k on God Walking characters, before inevitably deciding to do it on a different primary profession. Frankly I'm too bored to spend much time on any one profession now, and all I want from the game is a God Walking to have something to show for 4k hours.
4) Thanx :D I do also appreciate the "don't leave us" bit, even if it was a joke, always nice to feel wanted :-) -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 14:07, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Quick note about signature

Like hi. I noticed from the Signature Gallery on GW:SIGN's talk page that you're using

[[User:Suicidal_Tendencie|Suicidal Tendencie]] [[Image:Suicidal_Tendencie_Sig.jpg]]

as your signature. You don't need to "hard" link to your user page, an interwiki link would save a little bit of space:

[[User:Suicidal Tendencie|]] [[Image:Suicidal_Tendencie_Sig.jpg]]

Comparision:

It's not really a big deal though. Felix Omni Signature.png 14:04, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Hey
One question. I notice you use [[User Suicidal Tendencie|]] not [[User Suicidal Tendencie]]... my understand of wiki know-what is exceptionally limited... is there a reason for this? -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 16:59, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
Because [[User:Suicidal Tendencie]] and [[User:Suicidal Tendencie|]] become User:Suicidal Tendencie and Suicidal Tendencie respectively. Note the lack of a User: prefix? :)
You can also use [[User:Suicidal Tendencie|Monkeypoo]], but that'd produce Monkeypoo, and I don't think you'd want your sig to read Monkeypoo, esp since people will probably call you that (And it'd violate GW:SIGN :P ) --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 17:06, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Disregarding Monkeypoo, the | character is called a pipe, and placing it with no second field after an interwiki link will remove the prefix. This is commonly referred to as the "pipe trick." It also works with Wikipedia links, so Wikipedia:Rick Astley becomes Rick Astley. 208.44.247.101 18:48, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Drunken Master over Flail if you like booze, also opens up for Conjures that way. Lasts slots; "IATS!", "YMLaD!", res, EBSoH.. That's what I would do, probably :P --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 17:13, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Expertise is not an attribute you're likely to have a huge amount in(which hinders GA as an elite)... and bleeding as an elite skill? Err.. EVSS does Bleeding, and does not use an elite skill slot, and has a small chance to nuke an unsuspecting enemy, PTS you can use to help max degen, before the battle even starts, "DT!" is free (no energy cost, activated instantly...) again with FW, you use it before the battle starts for a constant, albeit minor, buff on every attack. The idea is as much armor ignoring damage as possible, while using degen to really give 1 target a fair bit of hassle -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 17:19, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Uh, Glass Arrows gives bonus damage, iirc the highest of a preparation. So, if you're going for a single target spike, Glass Arrows x3, EBSoH x3, weakened arrows x3, Asuran Scan, maybe Conjure x3. That's pretty good, imo. --JonTheMon 17:24, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Spec 14 marks, 14 expertise, burning arrow, hunters shot, various +damage things blabla. Ups rawrbuild. Lord of all tyria 17:29, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
(EC)Yes, it does extra damage. That being the only reason I'd bother to mention it being an Expertise skill. And the fact that it's the highest extra damage for a preparation doesn't matter, it's certainly not the most powerful elite skill in the game. I'd put more focus on my only elite skill than my only preparation.
I didn't say that the combination isn't good, so like the rest of your message, I'm not following you there. -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 17:33, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
I suppose I was thinking that the goal of your build was to spike down a single target. If so, needling shot and burning arrow aren't what I would have picked. I'd go with as many packets of damage at once as possible, and triple shot helps a lot with that. And if you aren't going with Expertise, what are you dumping your points into besides Marks? --JonTheMon 17:36, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
63 armor ignoring damage + damage from attacking + "DT!" (25%) isn't really that bad imo. Evidentally the name of the build was lost on you, lol :-) No the name's not more important than the effectiveness of a build, just making an observation. And they're the skills that I picked, and currently, I still do. Some rather nasty degen, a fair amount of armor ignoring damage, a 10% to really hit a target where it hurts... doesn't sound that bad to me. Needling serves as an IAS as far as I know (tested it but was tired at the time), so "DT!" triggers more often, and again, armor ignoring damage. -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 17:42, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
"Expertise is not an attribute you're likely to have a huge amount in" What?! That's probably the weirdest thing I've heard in days. Expertise is the sole reason to be a Ranger! It makes almost everything spammable, because it reduces energy cost efficiently. Besides, if you don't take Exp; what else would you take?
I dislike FW because of it's huge activation time, and buffs the opponents too (AI is already great with Savage Shot; FW makes em that much better because it now instantly hits the target.. o-o).
Also, the most armor ignoring damage with a Ranger would be Conjure, Asuran, "BUH!", Triple Shot, Glass Arrows (well, that would at least surpass BA by a long shot). PBS and ZS also have a good amount of armor ignoring damage, and can be spammed like crazy (lolExpertise and lolRecharge).
Degen is easilier spread with Incendiary Arrows since it's buff. Take Apply and IA, done. Everything is capped out on degen. But in the end, degen is not strong in PvE.
Use Flail as an IAS, not Needling. Needling makes your damage go BEOOOOOWWWW down the drain because it's rather pathetic, and your energy starts leaking after getting someone down with it. Besides, you're not using a Stance, nor do you have a secondary yet.. --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 18:01, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Well, in place of degen i'm trying to get lots of extra damage. Let's say you have 14 marks, 10 expertise, 10 fire magic.
Glass Arrows.jpg Conjure Flame.jpg Favorable Winds.jpg Triple Shot.jpg Optional.jpg Optional.jpg Optional.jpg Optional.jpg
Just that there will get you (15+15+9) * 3 = 117 bonus damage, but no degen and is based on triple shot. However, dual shot would be a second skill to bring along. And you still have room for EVSS and Strongest (which would also stack onto the spike). --JonTheMon 18:09, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
(EC)No I don't use Expertise much, so what? In builds like the One Arrow. One Kill. I do, because it only requires the one attribute. But I generally don't go near it that much.
And SERIOUSLY you dislike a skill because of it's ACTIVATION time when you cast it BEFORE aggro? Eh... okay...
"BUH!" is hard to keep up unless you don't use it for a while. As for PBS and ZS, I don't generally stand right beside enemy Warriors / Assassins / Dervish on my Ranger, I back up a bit more.
IA sorta kills the idea of focusing on one enemy, and it doesn't maintain Burning.
Needling's not pathetic, if it's not your kind of skill, fine, but lay off a bit more imo. PTS, "IATS!", FW, RTW and "DT!" do affect it you know.
I realize Rangers aren't exactly squishies, but I do try to avoid taking more damage than necessary, so I don't close in for skills like PBS and I don't slow myself down.
Degen isn't that bad you know, and I disagree, it's much better in PvE than in PvP where people invariably have a way to shift it.
Yeah it's an okay build, it does around the same damage my build does (I think, very roughly trying to factor in the degen + the recharge of Triple and Double).
And lolz... so much for opinions on the build I was talking about :P -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 18:20, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Wait... +9? How's that work? FW is +6 not +9 o_O -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 18:45, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Crap, was reading the spirit level. Uh... that'd still be like 108. --JonTheMon 18:50, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
(edit conflict) I left my opinion very concise and elaborated on what I find much more proficient (I usually forget to make it an opinion though, which makes my comments look very rude usually/most of the time. Sorry :( ).
Note that I have additional reasons beyond that, too. And yes, I dislike it for that. Standing still for almost 6 seconds right in front of some guys which you could've blown up already is meh :P
BUH/IA: True. Bit more on IA though: Why would you focus degen on one target if you can on multiple?
PBS/ZS/Flail: Warriors, Sins and Dervs will always be very close by unless you aggro, let your heroes/henches stand where they are and you walk back again. Do you? o-o"" Flail lasts so short you're not often disadvantaged by it. Besides, if you just walk up to them a bit more you don't have to move at all, generally.
So anyways, Needling is rather pathetic because it generally lowers your damage, without actually helping a lot, since IAS is better when it affects every attack.
In PvE degen is rather meh because you might as well just tear 'em down with those 8 skill slots. Anything can dish out a crapload of damage, so why bother slowly killing them? Although degen can be quite fun if you take Fevered and some Sin spamming Seeping Wound like a maniac... But good luck with getting that together, lawls. I did make a page for it, though, because most PvE mobs either straightout heal or just suck :) --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 18:53, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
I don't think I have ever seen you be insulting or been offended by a comment you have made.
I don't get your second point at all.
I'm not saying that killing one foe instead of killing three foes is being clever. Merely that the idea of the build in question, is in fact "sniping" a single foe.
Warriors, Sins and Dervs will always be very close by unless you aggro...er... huh? You mean they'll always be close unless not aggroed at all? I think there was a mistake here, and don't really understand this point at this time.
On Needling, I think we will have to agree to disagree, I favor armor ignoring damage, sometimes even if that does lower the damage dealt (to a point) because it's more reliable.
And... slowly killing them? Er, wha? You use PTS before aggro, Burning Arrow doesn't slow down your attack speed... it doesn't slow it down. Degen keeps eating at foes (unless removed) and does damage while you keep going at them, too. -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 19:07, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

OG Edit

This one. That combo doesn't work since OG isn't Elemental damage, and thus won't trigger WoWeaks Weakness. I tested it just a minute ago to not be wrong for a change :P --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 21:12, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, okay, I'll change it to make the point clearer. It's not wrong, you're just not creative enough atm tbh -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 21:13, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Happy now? Yeah, I know, I totally fluffed it the first time ¬_¬ It's your call, I won't rant or get annoyed or anything if you choose just to revert it. -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 21:19, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
The point with that is, that would 1) eat your secondary, 2) more attribs, 3) require frontlining (WoWeakness is "PBAoE"). --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 21:19, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Much easier combo: Enfeebling Blood. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 21:22, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
(EC)I probably should have gone with a PBAoE skill, but I was looking for skills with pulses which would keep the condition going. As I said, I was trying to be helpful and I've been watching it go down hill. If you want to revert, I honestly don't mind. -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 21:24, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Remember...

... You are valuable, and don't think otherwise. I do not want to involve myself in something that is none of my business (I do not exactly know what that apology is about, nor do I want to know), but just wanted to say that what you are saying there are almost the exact counter-examples listed on YAV. It doesn't matter how much edits you have, you're worth just as much as anybody else.--TalkpageEl_Nazgir 08:11, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

GW:YAV pertains to editing. In this case, ST revised his (her?) opinion about Entropy and apologized for the misunderstanding (and also for maybe still misunderstanding). It has nothing to do with editing and all with doing the right thing. --◄mendel► 08:34, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
Once again: thank you Mendel. While we are all valuable, at the same time, there is no denying some are more crucial to the community than others, and the community is this sites best / only asset. -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 12:07, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
Anyway, what I really meant was I don't pop up in RC much except when I fail at editing my own page constantly. I'm not that well-known, and when posting that message I half expected Entropy to reply asking who the hell I am. I hope this message clears it up for you. And thank you for the sentiment. -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 12:11, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
3 edits in a row by the same person ftl ¬_¬
but... Mendel: "his" -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 13:41, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
It doesn't matter how often you pop up in RC. It doesn't matter how "crucial" you think somebody is; there are people who have had more influence on the wiki than others, but many of those have gone and the wiki lives on. We don't have a wiki without the "non-crucial" people working on the bits and pieces that come to their attention, so everybody is crucial even though the actual influence varies. And that means that on any single issue, everybody has the same clout and the same value, even if some people have fewer issues they're active on.
Your apology to Entropy wasn't about that, though; if it was I misunderstood. You were talking to Entropy as a person to a person; it wasn't a matter of editing; and you felt the apology was needed for your relationship. How you treat other people can't be a matter of wiki policy; we do have policies how much of this treatment may be on the wiki pages (GW:NPA and such), but we can't proscribe people to like or to understand each other: that remains everybody's personal choice.
That is why I thought your apology wasn't a GW:YAV matter; but stating stuff like I don't pop up in RC much and I'm not that well-known (both not true, IMO) is. Even if you didn't and you weren't, it wouldn't (or rather, shouldn't) matter. Please stop thinking it does. --◄mendel► 15:06, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
lol, thanx, but I would say I'm fairly unknown :) And yes, I don't think what I said really is affected by / related to the policy, as I tried to explain above unsuccessfully it would seem -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 16:18, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Aspect of lol + Wail of Wutwut

How do I get the template to accept the fact I don't want a profession icon? :P -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 22:55, 18 February 2009 (UTC) *Bets €10 Mendel will answer this*

You win your bet. :) I fixed Wail; if you look at Aspect, you see {{{professionicon}}} where the icon is suppposed to be, and that tells you the name of the undefined template parameter. (Wheneever you see those triple braces, you know somebody's forgotten something in the template call.) You just need to define professionicon to be nothing, and it displays nothing. --◄mendel► 08:50, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Dialogue

See GuildWiki:Style and formatting/Dialogue if you want to spiff up your Userpage. --◄mendel► 08:58, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanx Mendel, but I'll never be you, or Ishy, or a similar coding wizard, and won't pretend to be something I'm not.
I see the value of such techsavvy people helping others, etc., but frankly I'd prefer to simply leave it as it is. Currently, you can see what Jack says, and what others say, and I'm satisfied. The places I took the quotes from had X: blah blah Y: omgnowai, but it's just not what I wanted.
Yes, in the past I've needed such help, and asked for it upon occassion, and both will come to pass again, I have no doubt. I don't even know why I'm typing what I'm typing. Funny mood atm I s'ppose.
I suppose I want to try and do my userpage by myself, in so far as is possible, don't let it concern you though, the feeling won't last five minutes. Thanx anyway. -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 12:59, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
I try to write what I mean, and I meant if - nothing more, nothing less. I assumed you didn't know that class exists, but I couldn't assume whether you'd want to use it: now that you know it exists, you can decide, and you have. That's all there is to it. :-) --◄mendel► 16:37, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Napkin

"I folded like a napkin." (Suicidal Tendencie)

I can best respond to what you write, and that I countered. I suspect that what you thought and felt went further than that, so I would encourage you to see my opposition as a challenge to voice that. This is work, but if you want to become good at this, you should do it so you get practice and maybe someday someone will look up to you like you did to me.

Your feeling is, "hey, that table is neat". I say "no it isn't, tell me why it is". Just because you can't doesn't mean it suddenly isn't neat any more — it just means that you haven't told me the real reason why you thought it is neat (and maybe that is because you didn't quite know yourself). So I guess why I am worried at you folding like a napkin is because I haven't actually opposed "this table is neat" (although I don't think so myself); I still respect your belief that it is. However, I hope that I could understand your belief if you explained it better, and that is what I challenged you to do.

Of course my suspicion may be wrong, and you've seen the error of your ways. ;-) --◄mendel► 10:57, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Wow... the first two times I read that I got lost and confused before finally on the third time comprehending it.
Anyways, to business.
I would like to remind you I thanked you for being open minded, so yes, I realize you respect my belief, and that you did not oppose my opinion.
It's really nothing to be worried about. I gave my view. (The table documented informantion, we are a wiki, we document informantion.) You reminded me that the information is already on documented, just not on a single page. In my opinion, I think the table has merits, however, I can't think of where to put such a large table, where it would not be in the way. It is also difficult to find somewhere where the contents of the table would all be appropriate on any given page. While I like the idea of the table, the factual informantion listed together in one place to be seen, documenting an aspect of the game as it is, I'm now not sure I see a place for it.
So there's no going deeper bit, sorry to disappoint you. However: if you want to become good at this, care to explain a bit please? :) -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 11:05, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
"this" means "discussing" and "voicing and explaining your thoughts and feelings". --◄mendel► 11:25, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
A shame, I thought / hoped, that that had been something more than it was. Ah well. -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 11:27, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Would you have liked it more if I'd called it "pwning people with walls of text so they fold like napkins"? ;-) --◄mendel► 11:45, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Amusing comment. No, not what I was thinking along the lines of at all. Amusing none the less. -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 11:46, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
"In my opinion, I think the table has merits, however, I can't think of where to put such a large table, where it would not be in the way. It is also difficult to find somewhere where the contents of the table would all be appropriate on any given page" <- you know, that's exactly how some of the pages containing aggregate data (such as a few of the QR articles) originally got started (even though we didn't have auto-generated tables back in the days). -User:PanSola (talk to the Follower of Lyssa.png) 11:52, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
lol... I'd rather the old fashioned way... *shudders at the thought of having to discover, then attempt, then fail at an automatic table* -->Suicidal Tendencie Suicidal Tendencie Sig.jpg 11:58, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
