Apparently moving out on one's own doesn't get easier with practice. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 18:39, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

It gets easier with copious amounts of money. Short of that, I'd imagine it'd be about the same each time. — Raine Valen User Raine R.gif 22:23, 22 Nov 2010 (UTC)
Well, I have slightly more money than last time (which is to say it's a positive value), but... -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 22:24, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
Positive is not necessarily copious. — Raine Valen User Raine R.gif 22:25, 22 Nov 2010 (UTC)

Very informative mage video[edit]

I found this and discovered it to be an invaluable resource for any budding mage. With the changes made to mages in Cata, I figured you might appreciate some advice on the new ins and outs of your favorite mage spec. -Auron 09:13, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

So no changes? -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 19:52, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Sup bro do you have the internets?[edit]

Do you have my page watchlisted or something? xD--TahiriVeila 01:27, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

...Yes? Have for a while now. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 01:30, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
Why? I've been banned for like 6 months xD--TahiriVeila 01:34, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
I very rarely care enough to clean out my watchlist. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 01:35, 1 December 2010 (UTC)


I just wanted to drop in and say that I hate you. -Cursed Angel Q.Q 13:53, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Fucking Ninja Bullshit[edit]

What are you talking about? -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 15:43, 17 January 2011 (UTC)
Well, I certainly hope that's you. Because, if it's not... User Ryuu R.jpgRyuu - lol wiki 19:30, 17 January 2011 (UTC)


Idk if you've missed the guild announcement or just don't give a hoot, so I'll post this here. I started playing again, casually. Along with my brother and a friend of mine. Thing is; Luxons>Kurzicks. That a problem? Would be awesome if it would at least be switched to this weekend, since there's a double title points weekend. If you can't be bothered, you can designate me as guild leader and I'll do it myself and designate you back. Ktnx. BlazeRick 11:24, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

The fuck? I'm a guild leader? -- ArmondUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 07:03, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
Maybe the former one designated you when they left. Anyway, much appreciated. BlazeRick 09:20, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

For some reason[edit]

I thought you were more of a PvP guy. -- Hong 17:50, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

I was when pvp was more fun than pve. Now I am when I can, but I've been left out of the last two ATs because (I assume) I'm not as good a player than other people in the guild/alliance. And, honestly, when your guild jumps from rank 250 to rank 80 in a week, that's a perfectly valid reason. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 21:54, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

IP RV[edit]

reverting as ip claiming another is someone else and reverting more ips is trolling lurn to troll better

Sense. Make it. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 05:42, 18 July 2011 (UTC)
Weirdly, you would think that Sense would be one of China's biggest exports, given that Sense is one of America's biggest imports. --Riddle 05:51, 18 July 2011 (UTC)
you got trolled
Look at me, I'm typing words on the internet! ¬ «Ðêjh» (talk) 16:22, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

(Reset indent) So..... about that.... revert..... I'm gonna need you to not revert as an...... IP.... yeah.... --JonTheMon 19:56, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

I forgot to log in. My browser crashed, so I lost my session data, then noticed it on rc. Happens all the time, tbh; and, seriously, what's wrong with editing via ip on a wiki? -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 21:23, 19 July 2011 (UTC)


I wonder what type of wikipedia:Harrassment Kaisha is perpetrating against you, because I can't really imagine her resorting to any of the types listed inthat article -- unless, of course, you mean it in the colloquial sense of "she's bothering me", in which case you ought to make that clear. (It's also not clear for which kind of abuse she was blocked.) Accusing someone else of harrassment publicly is not a light matter in itself.

If I didn't want to receive email from soneone, I would add their address to my email filters and thus make sure I'd never see it. --mendel 08:04, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

"Harassment covers a wide range of offensive behaviour. It is commonly understood as behaviour intended to disturb or upset, and it is characteristically repetitive."
I think that describes her emails fairly well to date. And, yeah, if I get another she'll have her messages marked as spam. If not, problem solved, right?
I would also call it verbal harassment via email, which might qualify as cyberstalking, though I disagree with the connotation of that word.
I'd offer to distribute the emails so you can see for yourself, but that'd be unethical, so I guess you'll just have to take my word for it.
-- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 09:36, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
I read your reply as implying that it's not one of the "serious" types listed; I get from it that Kaisha repeatedly sent you emails that intended to upset you. I now have the impression that you received a few emails containing some insults. I can well imagine that happening as Kaisha gets upset easily - the insults don't mean much once she's calmed down. I've received a few myself and never felt "harrassed"; I'm surprised that you can't take them, being a user yourself who pretty much insults every reader of their page ("likely to be dumber than Auron").
Anyway, thanks for clarifying. --mendel 10:44, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Free Speech[edit]

So I was browsin through some IP's talk page, and saw that you were talkin about free speech. Thought you should know that US law does apply to US-based websites, and if it didn't, and laws were, as you said, totally up to the owner of the site, child porn would be totally all over the place, moreso than it is, and copyright infringement wouldn't be an issue, and a bunch of other shit. I mean, just because it seeeeeeeems like there's no law on the internet doesn't mean there isn't any law on the internet. However, "Free speech" doesn't just mean "You can say whatever the fuck you want", it has some limitations, you would've looked smarter citing those limitations rather than pulling shit out of your ass. Gerroh's contempt for you is covered under free speech.--Gerroh 02:42, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

I was going to make some throwaway edit along the lines of "careface?", but then I realized that, if you're right, Conservapedia has indeed been illegally repressing free speech. If I had the time and energy I'd do something about that!
But, really, no one would ever care; just like no one would every care about a small site like GWW repressing free speech. So, in practical terms, I'm still right.
Also, where the hell did you find that? I haven't cared enough to discuss that sort of thing in a (relatively) long time.
-- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 04:08, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
The United States does not have any law forcing private individuals or businesses to listen to or facilitate your speech. A website is legally entitled to remove your comments (unless they have a contractual agreement not to) just as a bar is entitled to remove you from the stage on karaoke night for being just that terrible (or to remove you from a random table for being too drunk to realize it's not karaoke night) (again, unless they have a contractual agreement not to). Free speech is about being free of governmental restrictions on speech. l2constitution. - Tanetris 04:51, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
The talk page this, and Armond wrote It also might be useful to you to know that your right to free speech only applies to the physical world within the united states of america, not the digital world (or even the majority of the physical world, iirc). For one thing, this isn't a US thing - freedom of expression is written into Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and also Article 19 of the more recent International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and thus applies pretty much all over the world, including "the internet". However, the scope of this freedom is sometimes misinterpreted. You have the right to put up and operate your own website to express yourself on, without government interference. It doesn't give you any rights on somebody else's website. It is up to this wiki's community what scope of expression it wants to grant to its editors. In practice, this scope is much more limited than full "freedom of expression", as edits such as this one (to pick one at random, there are many other examples by other editors) illustrate. (Personally, I feel somewhat uncomfortable with this.) --mendel 08:08, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

Salvage data[edit]

As per your comment, there is Guild Wars Wiki:Projects/Drop research, which also covers salvage amounts of weapons. The project seems to be dead, but if you look in Category:Drop and salvage research, you will find pages that list the salvage amounts and merchant value of weapons (that were mostly copied and pasted from the talk pages of the weapons). You can also find that information on some of the talk pages of weapons, since not all weapons are listed in that category. --Silver Edge 01:56, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. I'll see what this gets me. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 05:02, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

If a flux falls in the forest and everyone's asleep, does anyone care?[edit]

re: "If anything, I bet it was pst (or different time zones at each end of the month), but I doubt anyone cares)"

Apparently, the Flux changes at midnight UTC. I agree with leaving out UTC (people have some odd reactions to time zones). Still, I thought as a fellow Defender of Truth that you'd be interested in the timing. – Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 01:25, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Huh. For some reason I thought it was a manual change and thus highly unlikely to occur at any given exact time. Thanks. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 07:24, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
That's because ANet used to do a lot of stuff manually. I think Nick Traveler was originally manual, which was why he was often late moving. It took ANet far too long to figure out how to prime the changes earlier so they could avoid doing an extra release just for a weekend event, special event, or new features (like flux). – Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 08:33, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Bar compression[edit]

Can you take a look at the examples for Bar compression? I'm pretty sure they do an insufficient job of illustrating the power of choosing 1 superior skill over 2-3 simply-good ones. The basic example seems ok. I am not satisfied with the team ones (instead of two examples of how a single toon allows others to drop some skills, shouldn't we show an e.g. of 2+ toons that synergize each other, e.g. a caster bring GDW for a para that brings an energy boosting shout). And the uncompressed/anti-compression one seems anemic. Also maybe there's another use case of when it might be sensible to decompress (uncompress?) the bar (e.g. to provide more cover enchantments or b/c the compressed skill's recharge is too high).

Thanks. – Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 22:20, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

I left some thoughts here, as you probably saw. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 01:29, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
Thx. – Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 15:54, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Shadowy Burden[edit]

Why was the skill never used? I mean, a snare that also reduces your target's armor to 40 seems pretty good for warriors and the old dervishes. Koda User Koda Kumi Horns1.GIF 23:07, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

10e makes it not really viable for warriors, 15r makes it not great when you have to swap (due to e.g. SoD), and if there's any other hexes on the guy (from your water ele trying to help you land a kill, for example), the -20 armor doesn't apply. Assassins don't use it because shadowsteps and knockdowns. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 02:24, 20 December 2011 (UTC)


First person MMO: workable idea or not? -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 23:10, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

Dust514 will be testing that. --Riddle 17:29, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

an historical[edit]

Does this mean that being an hero is no longer funny/sad? :P --Riddle 17:29, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

Oh, I just saw your edit on Jon's page. I still contest "an historical." Link please? --Riddle 17:38, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
Apparently, we contest it because we're not middle aged. Also no, an hero is funny because of the circumstances surrounding its origination. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 18:50, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

Upkeep et al[edit]

I defer to you if the current version of Upkeep is better than the original (I think there's something strange about beginning an article with "these" without specifying "them," but I'm sure there are other ways to adjust it.) (Same goes for the other resource costs; I wouldn't contest it if you restored them to their 2011 text.) – Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 23:42, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
