  • Hi Mechemik,

    Again, I test it many times. The bandits will show up at 5pm. If don't see them, just do some little warkaround, move the camera. Then you can see them walk slowly and swagger into the town..

    I'm not sure, because I rarely Meditation to 7 pm. Maybe this time they are alreay knock the door ? And can't see them walk into town ?

    Is there a way to insert Little Red (bandit) link into the article ? They are relation, yet I hardly can't find the link in this page. https://witcher.wikia.com/wiki/Little_Red_(bandit)

  • Hi Mechemik,

    I test it many times. If drink no potions, the enemis in High Level Difficulty is rare, almost imposibble to make them "Fly". Whereas it's very easy to let them "Fly" in low level difficulty even with no potions.

    I guess maybe your level is higher or similar compare to the bandits ?

    For me, they are much higher.  

    I think "Sign Effect" may depend on  1. Level difference between Geralt and enemy  2. Difficulty level of game setting  3. Potions and Mutations

    Besides, thank you very much for modify the grammer about the info I put in. That makes the description much more clear and brief. Really apprecite your contribution to Wiki.

    P.S. I'm not very familiar with Fandom Wiki. Hope the Message Wall is an efficiency way to commiucate with you. If not, please kindly tell me which way to discuss the page subject is better ? Thanks.

    • Ah, in that case it's better to say something like "on X difficulty, enemies rarely fly so it's better to be on Y or lower difficulty" to make it clear why it's easier on lower settings :) You can add it back if you wish.

      And yes, message walls are the best way to communicate on Wikia.

    • Thanks for the suggestion and feedback.

      Will add it back plus more info.

    • Just done.

      And I think the rule I conclude for "Sign Effect" may insert into other similar achievement page. Or even in the potions/ability/mutation page ?

      Or maybe just creat another page to recorde this, and insert Link to other pages ?

      What do you think ?

  • You recently reverted my edit to the Ancient Leshen Decoction page. This edit was based on extensive testing I did with the decoction, using the latest game update for PC(1.31A)

    According to my tests, the Ancient Leshen Decoction does not function in any way except when using the Axii sign. When the Axii sign is cast, it increases stamina regeneration by 5 points. This does not appear to have a cap, as I was able to increase my stamina regeneration from 13 to 355 before I got bored.

    Please restore my edit to the page.

    Sincerely,

    • Then why don't we fix that information!?

      Especially since doing so is so stupidly easy?

      There is zero reason why the effects section must 100% correlate with the in-game text, especially given the in-game text is wrong!

      If people want to see what the game has to say, they can look in the actual game.

      If people want to see what it actually does, that's when they go to the wiki. So why are we making those people's lives more difficult when we could just list it right there?

      ...

      Let me rephrase this. If I'm looking for a list of monsters in world of warcraft, I want to see their names, their weaknesses, and their damage types. I don't give a damn if the lore on them says they're weak to fire if they're not actually weak to fire in-game.

      Put that useless lore information on the actual page, so people who want to read it can. But the entire purpose of an aggregate page is to save time, time wasted searching through each and every page individually.

      That purpose is completely null and void if the information presented is so wrong that they have to go through each page individually to make sure the information on the aggregate page is actually correct, and not just incorrect information foolishly preserved for the sake of posterity and looking pretty!

      1. we like to follow a consistent format. This means all game item effects (not just 3, but 1 and 2 as well) are in the infobox
      2. any inconsistencies are noted on each page
      3. we don't treat the amalgation pages as a stopping point in reading but rather a general overview. For example, we don't list what diagrams are needed on it or, like the swords, all their effects because it makes it too detailed (for example, back to the monsters, our monsters have a separate section on their pages that goes into a detailed tactics overview, doesn't simply say "use x bomb and y sign")
      4. we're not doing it to look pretty, we're doing it to avoid confusion and back and forth edits (readers read one thing in game, but then sees something entirely else here, thinks its a mistake, edits it, people have to go back in and edit it, etc.) hence back to #2: we make sure to note that there are inconsistencies; we're not merely giving false information, we're showing what it says in game (and who knows, maybe it was meant to be like that but a bug is preventing it) and what it's actually doing. Think of it like the "sic" tags you see everynow and then: we're acknowledging this is how the game information is displayed but it's not actually correct.

  • why would you delete the fucking picture with all the TW3 Axes

  • Hi!

    I slightly modified the Item template (demo here, source here). I moved armor and damage fields up and changed the effects field to the normal type. Let me know what you think.

    • Simplicity over design and functionality then. There is no workaround for that.

      Sorry. I thought your previous message meant I could edit. I think damage and armor should go above the effects. They are more important stats.

    • Eh, that sucks :/

      And that's ok. As for the damg/armor, it's more to do with with them hardly existing due to them being randomized (one editor appeared to have found the formulas for some, but they didn't all of them).

  • Where is that 120,000 number coming from, just curious?

    • Likely from the books. I'd have to re-read them though to find it again.

  • Looking at your contributions, I noticed that a lot of them don't have an edit summary of what exactly what you changed. For posterity's sake, please consider adding edit summary to your future contributions.

    • While appreciative, we don't care too much about summaries as it'd be a neverending battle with editors to always add them, especially since one of us always checks over the changes anyways. However, when there are big changes made, we do try to provide a summary. :)

  • Regarding this edit, I did keep the line breaks intact; we may need to adjust the wiki’s CSS for <dd> elements (::: lines in wikicode) to have them display as desired without making a mess of the resulting HTML. Setting larger vertical margins should do the trick, I think.

    • Yeah, but the important thing is that now, when someone OCD about code comes around (like me), they won’t accidentally ruin things anymore.

  • Following the Manual of Style, i'm adding all the out-of-universe references of a page to the section "Trivia", trying to be has syntetic as possible. I notice though that a lot of pages uses the section "Behind the Scenes", having extensive paragraphs about the real-word references to a character/creature/etc., with the additions of out-of-universe images (like the Leshy and Kikimore's page). Which version is more correct?

    OT. Did you happen to work on the Assassin's Creed Wiki sometime in the past? I might be mistaken.

      Loading editor
    • Yes, you're doing fine :) Those pages you showed as an example should be updated to "Trivia". The only ones that really use "Behind the Scenes" are more of the video clips (like A Night to Remember).

      And no, I never actually worked on the AC wiki... which is strange now that I think about it because I used to play those as soon as they came out (until AC4). <.<
