Hope you don't prefer your talk link in red ...[edit]

... but welcome to the wiki. Officially, I mean. ;) Steve1 (talk) 16:40, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you! - Alexis Toran (talk) 16:44, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
So I've read you're looking for miniatures. I may know a guy (or two). ;) - Infinite - talk 20:03, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks - but it's not a priority right now (and won't be for a long while), and my money is going into other things. - Alexis Toran (talk) 20:08, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
I never mentioned anything about a price, did I now? - Infinite - talk 22:30, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
Oh, well, that would be very kind! It's for Devotion, so they'd have to be undeds - I don't know if that changes anything. - Alexis Toran (talk) 22:44, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
It does not, though any miniatures you might already have can influence the amount I can trade to you. ;) - Infinite - talk 22:53, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
Well, that's a pretty long list. Maybe we should meet ingame sometime to discuss it. - Alexis Toran (talk) 23:01, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
Indeed we should. Any and all my IGN's are on my user page, and I tend to be online often. Send me a whisper whenever. :) - Infinite - talk 23:15, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
I've probably got an unded white rabbit if you want it. -Chieftain Alex 23:26, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
Alas, I already have all three rabbits, but thanks for the offer. - Alexis Toran (talk) 23:28, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Thon[edit]

Is it possible that you had those skills already unlocked on your account? In that case all skill trainers will offer those skills. Steve1 (talk) 17:22, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Oh? I didn't realise that. Must make it pretty hard to figure out which ones are actually offered. - Alexis Toran (talk) 17:54, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
a complete nightmare lol. -Chieftain Alex 19:04, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
What the tit said ... ;-P Steve1 (talk) 20:04, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

"Easier way of attributing unsigned comments"[edit]

Regarding this edit summary, were you using {{unsigned+}}? --Silver Edge 06:18, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Nope. Thanks for letting me know about that. - Alexis Toran (talk) 12:13, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Surge in Presearing[edit]

Since you were kind enough to stop in at my talk page, I wanted to return and check yours out as well. I noticed a surge yesterday in presearing playing as the Baron. People were very new, asking how to activate EotN and where the heroes were located. I did my best to answer them, but I soon went charr hunting for Blazefiend Griefblade with a ranger. After I got back, I noticed I was kicked into district two!! Yep, district one was full. Later in the evening I was on as Dirk up in Umbral Grotto when again I was surrounded by many players. What could be the cause in the surge? --Wendy Black 19:28, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

I can't say I'm the best person to ask. GW2 went on sale a little while back, which might have had a knock-on effect... It occurs to me that if they know about heroes already, they probably know people who already play the game. And hello again, welcome to my page! It's not much to look at, but you might be interested in seeing my character pages once I get them uploaded (sometime soon!). Nice of you to stop by :) - Alexis Toran (talk) 19:37, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
It was probably because people bought the Guild Wars Trilogy while its price was recently 50% off on Steam (from 5 September to 7 September) http://store.steampowered.com/news/14328/ and were creating new Prophecies characters. --Silver Edge 05:04, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
Well I didn't even know they offered it on Steam. That was a great deal $15 for the trilogy. I recall my son's spent about $50 per game $150 for the trilogy plus all the additional content, costumes, etc.. I think they blew about $300 to $400 each. Of course they played it since 2008. Now I have to twist an arm just to get them online, because they are wrapped up in something else... work or girls I think, maybe both. --Wendy Black 15:34, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Proof of Legend[edit]

http://wiki.guildwars.com/index.php?title=Proof_of_Legend&diff=next&oldid=2585641

Did you perchance do a mission in the same region prior to that? Steve1 (talk) 07:46, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Oh! I just realised my mistake. I didn't do a mission in the Charr Homelands, but I did do one in the Depths of Tyria. Sorry for the confusion. - Alexis Toran (talk) 10:11, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
To add more confusion: I recently did Fronis Irontoe dungeon with a fresh character and did not receive a PoL. So maybe you're right after all. Needs more testing I guess. Steve1 (talk) 10:22, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I just did the exact same thing. - Alexis Toran (talk) 10:41, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
the item description does rather suggest it to only be missions... ^^ -Chieftain Alex 11:41, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
True. But I've heard a few folks claim they received Proofs from dungeons. :P Steve1 (talk) 12:50, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

NPC stubs (open question)[edit]

I've been having a go at getting back into editing over the last few days, and I decided to look through some of the stub categories to find things that needed doing, but I'm coming across quite a few NPC stubs which don't seem to me to be missing anything major. Several of them are enemies which don't have their armor ratings listed - should they still be considered stubs in this case? And as a secondary question, how does one go about collecting these armor ratings in the first place? - Alexis Toran (talk) 14:58, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Regarding that last question, I've now found the armor rating project. Looks like I might be needing a candy cane hammer... - Alexis Toran (talk) 12:32, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
What an odd coincidence that I decide to check my watchlist today for the first time in a long time, and find my way to this only-a-few-days-old post. I de-stubbed many NPC pages several years ago that weren't missing anything. People tend to add it when they first make a page and no one wants to be hasty in removing them, so the stub tags tend to last long past their usefulness. I don't know if things have changed since I've been here, but I wouldn't consider missing armor ratings to be worthy of a stub tag. It's nice supplementary information, but not essential. I got pretty much every creature recorded except some special bosses, pre-searing, and generic bosses. You're welcome to add your own findings if you wish, of course, but I don't think it's keeping any page a stub. Manifold User Manifold Neptune.jpg 02:18, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! I'll feel a bit more confident about removing those tags going forward, then. - Alexis Toran (talk) 08:52, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Back for good?[edit]

Welcome back! Will be just a stint? Or planning to stay? Steve1 (talk) 17:35, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Hard to say, really. I hope I'll be sticking around, but for the moment my edits are mostly just low-hanging fruit! I don't currently have a lot of free time to go ingame and investigate things. - Alexis Toran (talk) 17:39, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Discord[edit]

My username on Discord is 'Erzsebet#3486' - with 'zs' instead of 'sz' ;) Erszebet (talk) 11:16, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Request sent! - Alexis Toran (talk) 11:33, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

skill trainers[edit]

Just wanted to drop a "well done"! SabSparrow and you really cleaned those up. Nice. Steve1 (talk) 20:45, 15 February 2023 (UTC)

It's too bad I burned out partway through a few years ago, I do feel a bit sheepish coming back to find most of the job already done! - Alexis Toran (talk) 21:13, 15 February 2023 (UTC)
I'll second Steve and thank you for the work you've done for the community. We all take time away, and we all have only so much blood, sweat, and tears to give. ; ) Greener (talk) 21:20, 15 February 2023 (UTC)

Nick Sandford[edit]

Duh, I think I had a senior moment there. Thanks for the fix! — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 20:11, 2 April 2023 (UTC)

Reindeer[edit]

Per: https://wiki.guildwars.com/index.php?title=Save_the_Reindeer&oldid=2691949 Good catch. My bad though; I had forgotten that any non-nightfall character was not restricted to access to that area. Thank you. Tikka LeFem talk (talk) 23:28, 4 January 2024 (UTC)

Seek Out Headmaster Kuju[edit]

Is that the case for the other 7 classes/qs as well? Should be ... don't have a free slot to test it ... Steve1 (talk) 14:02, 6 February 2024 (UTC)

I'll test when I have time, I'm busy hosting today. - Alexis Toran (talk) 14:38, 6 February 2024 (UTC)
Cool.
Are you part of GW1Community / LGiT on Discord? Steve1 (talk) 16:27, 6 February 2024 (UTC)
I'm not, I've been hosting CNY solo for... nine years now maybe? - Alexis Toran (talk) 16:36, 6 February 2024 (UTC)
Solo? For a decade? Holy moley! Steve1 (talk) 18:23, 6 February 2024 (UTC)
