Date of Sacrifice x Health removed from skill descriptions?[edit]

When was the actual text description of Sacrifice x Health removed from all relevant skill descriptions? Did it coincide with the introduction of concise descriptions, or had it come about before? Thanks. Azasuke1988 17:09, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Wednesday, February 6, 2008 was when both icons were introduced and text was removed. (different to Game updates/20080313 when the concise updates were added!) User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.jpg Chieftain Alex 10:08, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

Update notes for skill histories[edit]

After noticing a recent spate of skill history updates quoting 2007 versions of skills as "originals" (1-2 years after skill releases), I'm thinking it might be easiest if we just created a page listing all of the skill updates in one place, and just used the find function in our browsers ("ctrl + f" usually) to find the skill name on the page. (Evidently we'd have to use guildwiki to find the earliest version of the skill) User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.jpg Chieftain Alex 13:24, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Most skill updates have a corresponding developer update note (http://www.guildwars.com/gameplay/developer_updates/ has the ones as early as 2009, while Feedback:Developer updates has the ones as far as 2007). Gamependium (which is also listed on Guild Wars Wiki:Projects/Skill history#Guidance) can also be used to narrow down the date of the skill updates (e.g. Blinding Surge). --Silver Edge 21:34, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
I misunderstood what you meant, but after seeing the update pages by year (e.g. Game updates:2005), I see we can just create a page that lists the content of every single update page on this wiki. --Silver Edge 22:22, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
Note that the find function won't work if the skill name was misspelled in the game update notes by ArenaNet and copied verbatim onto the wiki, e.g. the Ritualist skills listed at Feedback:Game updates/20120105#Ritualist/http://eu.guildwars.com/support/article/update_january_5_2012. --Silver Edge 21:05, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

For future reference[edit]

All trading cards ArenaNet made way back when with the values and descriptions of that time. All professions, up to EotN. Some skill icons that haven't made it into the game, too, such as Nonsensical Spear (Maiming Spear). - Infinite - talk 20:47, 26 October 2017 (UTC)
