I've updated one section with {{skill icon}}, but I think on the other section, there are skills missing, such as Storm Chaser Storm Chaser. File:User Horsedrowner avatar.jpg horsedrowner 07:44, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

I do not understand or see in the Ranger class description/details where they get +30 ele AR[edit]

I do not understand or see in the Ranger class description/details where they get +30 ele AR. ...edit...I found where the answer there a way to link to this page: [1] It explains that for PRIMARY (This was not specifically stated in the elemental damage page) rangers the armor has an inherent armor resistance to elemental damage...and I feel this was unclear from the previous readings....I do not understand how to edit the page and would feel horrible if I changed something and couldn't revert it to the previous state.

excerpt from this page: Rangers, for instance, have an inherent +30 AR against elemental damage, and thus are better defended in the face of elemental sources than other professions. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

It isn't quite accurate. It's an inherent armor mod on ranger armor, not on the rangers themselves. A naked ranger, or ranger equipped in universal/neutral equipment like festival hats does not gain an armor bonus. MA Anathe

Ward Against Harm[edit]

I'm removing Ward Against Harm from the list of skills which increase armor vs elemental damage. WAH provides fire-specific defense, and a general armor bonus. If armor vs a specific element warrants inclusion, there's a long list of insignias to add. If general armor bonuses do likewise, WAH is only one of many. TLDR Version: WAH doesn't make sense to include. (It was added and removed once before by Gordon Ecker in the past, as well.) MA Anathe 05:35, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

I agree with this decision. The only reason I believe it was placed here in the first place was because it specified one elements armor bonus being higher despite having a general armor bonus for everything else. I can see where a misconception would come in to place it here. PowerGamer 05:59, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I was thinking the same. Backsword 06:17, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Decision don't include the protection from element-specific damage in this article should be clearly described in preface. It also should be noted that specific protection is explained in corresponded articles instead, otherwise readers can be misguided. --Slavic 07:12, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
