Missing armor overview renders

I've recently been going through the armor galleries to make a list of galleries that still need images or not. I've found a few scattered instances where the overview renders you provide are missing (not counting all the male ele sets).

  1. Missing right overview render on Gallery of male monk Ascalon armor
  2. Missing all overview renders on Gallery of male monk Elite Luxon armor
  3. Missing right overview render on Gallery of male necromancer Tyrian armor

Just thought I'd let you know. --Valshia 19:52, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks Valshia! This is really helpful :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 21:47, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Render issue

See Talk:Gallery of female monk Ancient armor - BeX iawtc 08:47, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Thanks Bex...I'll add that to my list of image to recap :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 21:12, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Skill icon for Mantra of Celerity

Hi Emily! Is it possible to provide an icon for the unreleased skill Mantra of Celerity? Would be great. :) BigBlueMonk 20.pngtalk 10:02, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

You might be able to find it in Gw.dat with GwDatBrowser... along with the icons of other unimplemented skills. However, I'm not sure if the article retention policy covers these skills. --Santax (talk · contribs) 12:04, 17 November 2007 (UTC)
Even if we can find the icon in the gw.dat (what I don't believe because I think the gw.dat is cleaned from time to time - at least when you delete it and load it again), we don't know how the skill icon looked like, so it would be great to get it directly. poke | talk 13:53, 17 November 2007 (UTC)
Outdated information and one-time events (hereafter collectively referred to "historical information") will be dealt with through a separate policy. (Cite from Policy). Unfortunately there is no policy for historical content in this wiki. To Gw.dat: Yeah, I could search for this icon, but who guarantees that I choose the right image? And I think as long as we have this article it's should be complete (as other historical articles are at present) BigBlueMonk 20.pngtalk 13:57, 17 November 2007 (UTC)
You could use this image as a reference... it's from back when hidden skills were briefly accessible in-game due to skill template format. This has since been fixed though, so hidden skill information has to come directly from Gw.dat (which, incidentally, I don't think is ever cleared of old stuff) --Santax (talk · contribs) 14:14, 17 November 2007 (UTC)
Used this pic to generate a placeholder. But the quality is... BigBlueMonk 20.pngtalk 14:47, 17 November 2007 (UTC)
Sure! I uploaded the one I had on file, but it looks pretty similar to what you guys already had. Regardless, it's up :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 03:25, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Getting a headstart

Hi Emily, I thought I would make this request now so you could give it a little time if/when you get a break from working on GW2 :) . But considering the success of Halloween (Main Halloween page got about 100,000 hits in the last week, so the renders got very high visibility (including the main page)) I was hoping you might have time to do some of the Christmas ones. In particular: Snowman, Grentch, Reindeer (and Rudi), Elf. Thanks again Emily !  :) --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 00:46, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Mursaat Shortbow

Hey, the render you posted for the Mursaat Shortbow from the BMP is actually the skin for the Mursaat Longbow, Flatbow and Hornbow variants. The Mursaat Shortbow and Recurve Bow actually use another skin. Jennalee 15:23, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Doh! I must have read the spreadsheet backwards. If you guys could flip them around for me, that would be great. I will get the correct shortbow image up as soon as I have a chance to get back to render caps. Thanks for noticing that :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 00:27, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Render Request, Nian

Emily, I know you are superbusy (from like every post you say ;), but when you feel like opening up the rendering program... I would love and humbly request a render of a Nian for the wiki. That is just a gorgeous model. Whoever did that, it shows it is a labor of love. You can pass that compliement along for sure. Thanks for considering! --Ravious 17:00, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

I am SO sorry that this took so long to get to, Ravious! :( I have the renders up here now. I also passed along your praise to the artist that designed the Nian, and worked some magic to secure something for the website that I think everyone will adore. I'm not giving any more details, though, so everyone will just have to wait to see what it is. UserEmilyDiehlWink.gif --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 21:41, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
Awesome, thanks Emily :) --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 21:49, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
Indeed, they look really cool --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ Talk 21:56, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
Please don't be sorry at all! I really appreciate it. Such a beautiful model and texture. Can't wait to see the surprise. --Ravious 01:12, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
Standing up, the Nian resembles a "primitive" charr. hahaha Renin 01:28, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, he's super cute in mid-rear :) I love the Nian! --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 03:20, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
If you have any influence, try get them to make a mini nian... maybe for 3rd year bday? Nians are so sweet! :) *nudge nudge* hehe Barinthus 03:21, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

[reset] WTT unded kuuna for unded nian... I also wanted to say thanks for the Oola trivia. I didn't catch that before it got archived. --Ravious 11:00, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Render request

Hi emily I know you're busy but I was wondering if you could make renders of Glint,The Great Destroyer and if its possible Abbadon. thanks a ton--The Forsaken One 22:56, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Sure thing! I'll do that tonight. I need a break from schedules eyes are starting to cross XD --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 00:17, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
Awesome renders :) --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 04:00, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
Wow Glint looks AWSOME! thanks emily--The Forsaken One 16:44, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
You're very welcome :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 19:13, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Item Renders

Hello Emily. Wanted to say I really appreciate those beautiful renders! I cannot find any of items and drops - is there a collection of those (or a catalogue) somewhere that I can refer to? Thanks! – User Barinthus Magical Compass.png Barinthus 03:01, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

There are a few item renders, but not many as yet. Bottle Rocket has one for example. In fact here I collected all the ones I could find/recall here User:Lemming64/Item renders --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 03:04, 22 February 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! Perhaps I misunderstood, I was referring to most "cut out" images of items you can find on many collectible trophies pages. Still I appreciate the link :) – User Barinthus Magical Compass.png Barinthus 04:11, 22 February 2008 (UTC)
Some things are extracted from the .Dat, NPC renders are provided by Emily, and somethings are inventory icons cropped to size. Calor Talk 04:15, 22 February 2008 (UTC)
All the renders on the page I put up are created by Emily like the NPC ones. --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 21:18, 22 February 2008 (UTC)
I'm glad you like them! Hopefully, I'll be able to fill that out more and more over time :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 00:18, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Assassin Elite Canthan male render

I noticed this render Image:Assassin Elite Canthan armor m.jpg has the wrong mask. Image:Assassin Elite Canthan armor m dyed front.jpg shows the correct one. Tedium 07:59, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Oops! Thanks for pointing it out, Tedium. I'll correct the render tomorrow when I get back to my desktop :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 19:06, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
OK, it should be fixed after the image cache refreshes. Thanks again for the heads up! --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 22:17, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

male Monk Krytan armor

hi, just wanted to point out that on the male version the handwraps seem to be missing. —ZerphatalkThe Improver 14:26, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Good catch, even I missed that! Also, Mhenlo's leggings clip into his Chest piece, at least in Nightfall, when he's attacking. Looks weird... Please look into it? --ChristopherRodrigues 18:26, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, Zerpha! I'll fix those renders tomorrow when I get back to my work desktop. As far as clipping goes, I'm just the web producer so I'm afraid I can't fix that :) I'll pass the comment along, though, and I recommend that you post a comment on Mike's art issues bug page so QA can take a look at it too. --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 19:12, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
Okeys, I updated those images. Thanks again for catching that, Zerpha :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 00:36, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Missing High Res Armour renders.

Hi Emily, I know your busy but just a heads up that we're still missing the high res armour overview renders for a few sets. (You might have already have done them but if you have i can't locate them) It's just for uniformity sake it would be nice to have them. Like in some cases we have user images to fill those gaps however it just doesn't look the same as throughout most the pages theirs a nice theme of big spankey anet renders for the overview without a background and the charecter in a pose we dont have an emote for, an example of which can be seen here. Please find below a list of all the armours which are missing high res armour overview renders from yourself (It should be noted that some of these galleries do have user images on them but I think most people would prefer those replaced with the images that only you can provide us with):-

I know it's ALOT of work, but if you get some spare time it would be REALLY appreciated! -- Salome User salome sig.png 20:47, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

i kind of feel like havening the high res renders makes n00bs and players who just haven't seen the armor before feel like they look better then they actually do. unless a screen shot takes a lesser quality image then what is seen in game. but i know that when i was looking at the Paragon Monument armor just the one image that they have up looks better in that then in the game, but also that armor along with a lot of the gwen armors have red bleading on them, when dyed any color other then red. that alone annoys the hell out of me but that is for mike to fix. 06:53, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
Thats a different issue and honestly if the armours look much worse than the high res renders on your computer, then thats a graphics problem your end. Alot of high spec computers handle the computer graphics fine. For example all of my armours look more or less exactly like the high def renders. As for the red bleeding, I agree its VERY annoying, but this isnt an issue for Emily, thats one for Mike as you said. -- Salome User salome sig.png 10:26, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads-up, Salome! I am going to try to set some render time aside some night at the end of the week/next week to bang out some of these missing sets. I always mean to get to them, but the process is pretty time consuming and I get interrupted when I try to do them (especially if it's during the day) :) Sorry for the delay, and I'll add these sets to my queue. --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 19:19, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
i play guild wars on the highest setings. but still it dosnt look half as sharp as the renders. 22:24, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Oh Emily, I know im being a pain and my sincerest apologies but please could you also add all male elementalist armours to your list too hun? As they are all missing :) -- Salome User salome sig.png 05:22, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

A Thorn in my side

Hello there emily, i hope you can help me. I am very passionate about creating/helping in-game events for the community and im currently working on a project to make a Mad King Thorn costume in-game using many different dye combo's and Armour combo's for a warrior.So far i have pretty much got it to perfection, using the renders of Thorn as a reference, but i have one problem, i know there is a pattern on his cape plus various tattered details, could it be possible to get a render of his rear view? Thanks in advance Frozenwind 22:39, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Hiya Frozenwind! Here you go...I cranked up the bloom on his back so you could see the tree on the cape a little bit better. Hope this helps :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 22:45, 11 June 2008 (UTC)´
Thank you ever so much!, you have no idea how long i have been trying to get hold of this! thank you thank you thank you! =) Frozenwind 23:01, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
See why she is my favourite ANet team member? :) -- Gem (gem / talk) 23:16, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
Aww, any time :) Glad I could help ya! You'll have to post a picture of your results...I love the Mad King too. --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 23:17, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
Frozenwind, the thing on Thorn's cape is basically Ascalon Royal emblem - go around in Ascalon pre-searing and perhaps post searing and you will see it all over the place. It's also often used on certain bundles such as this one. And yes do please share your results. – User Barinthus Magical Compass.png Barinthus 23:21, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
I did some sniffing around in my imageshack folder and found this - King Adelbern's capeUser Barinthus Magical Compass.png Barinthus 23:30, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Well it seems i could make a few friends here :D.The picture shown below is a mocked up piece with a likeness beside it.It is also missing a black tattered cape behind it. (which will be added later on), This may feature unwanted bits of armour.I may also text mod the fingers to be orangey like his, and the cape to be transparent at places to.Yes i have to much time on my hands to get the right dye and combos >.< but i love it!

Tell me what you think or DIE! =)

Have you tried a Luxon/Silver Eagle style for the chest piece to get the shoulders more accurate? --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ talk 02:57, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Aye i have, thing is about silver eagle is that its way to silver for a king thorn costume.not creepy enough :P. And the luxon is ok but just for the shoulders.Thanks for the help and interest. And i see what you mean about adelbern,veryyyy close indeed. Frozenwind 13:29, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

A vain request

I was wondering if you could offer up some renders of Lady Althea sometime in the future. I don't have much of a reason besides vanity and envy I was back playing in Pre-Searing a little bit, and noticed that she has a set of unique armor. I'd really like to gaze enviously upon her outfit, and seethe in jealousy at one of the few female Mesmer MPCs although Mei Ling is a very close second. Yukiko User Yukiko Sig.png 02:32, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

I sure can :) Let me finish up some stuff real quick and I'll get those for you. --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 19:50, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
Here you go, Yukiko! Here's Lady Althea's front, her side, and her back. Enjoy :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 00:04, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
Thank you very much Emily! You're a real sweetheart. Yukiko User Yukiko Sig.png 04:20, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Dragon Festival Renders

Hi Emily, similar to my christmas request if you have time could you pop up some renders for next weekends dragon festival, always nice to have them in place for all the infrequent users who visit here during events. I think most of the ones we need are here I assume we are having the actors again with masks. I don't think there is anything we have missed out :) Thankyou! --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 22:18, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Sure thing! I'll do that now. I'm a little worried about the transparent helm NPC looking bad against the white background, but I can figure something out. --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 00:08, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
Looking awesome as always, thanks Emily :) --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 01:44, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
*cheers* Anytime! I can't find the Fury one and the Dryder one, so I'm going to have to ask about those. I'll do that tomorrow. --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 01:56, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
What dryder? -- 12:21, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Armour images

yay!!! you're a star! oh by the way, you seem to have reverted yourself a few times accidentally. Would you like me to go ahead and revert back to your new pics or should i leave them alone? -- Salome User salome sig.png 00:24, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

Nah, that's OK. I'm actually having caching issues myself, so it's hard to see if I replaced an image with the right one. I was reverting because I uploaded the wrong file, and then I wasn't able to delete (also due to cache problems, I think). --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 00:48, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
Fair enough. I know how that is myself as you know. Just a wee heads up however but it seems that in the most recent batch of pics you did,you haven't posed the ele the same way you've posed all the rest of your renders. He's in his casual stance, rather than that arms out at his sides stance that only you can put him in. Not a complaint or anything, just trying to be helpful. :) -- Salome User salome sig.png 03:31, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

render requests :)

Well if you are gonna ask ;) here are some that I would like to see if you do find time today: Zippy - Oozes. Well at least I'm not too demanding ;) Happy birthday again! --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 21:44, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

White Moa, Enslaved Hero, Celestial Pig, and Celestial Rat. would be nice too if you had the time :) Fall 22:15, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
Hi guys! I got some of the jellies done and figured out why I wasn't able to cap the Moa. I'm going to have to ponder the best way to cap the celestials and the ghosts. Since we put them against the white background and the models are transparent, they don't show up very well. I'll probably need to manually go in and adjust their balance or alpha cap them against black and then put that against the wiki white. Hmm. --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 00:13, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
I'd say it'd probably be acceptable to render near-white objects on a neutral gray background and provide that as the render, even if it's not the exact same background as the others. That's just my personal input, though. Go to Aiiane's Talk page (Aiiane - talk - contribs) 00:17, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
Wow thanks those are really good zippy looks awesome, so does the white moa :) Fall 00:20, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Elementalist "Deldrimor armor" galleries

I noticed a little naming goof on your male ele pics: Their gender letter is a capital M. Normally, the gender letters are written in minorcase :P (e.g. Image:Majestic Shoes M.jpg) —ZerphatalkThe Improver 20:56, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

I don't think I named anything myself. I uploaded files over existing images and red links, and the pages I made were copy/pasted from existing pages :) I haven't kept up with how people have decided to name things, so I stay out of questioning anything related to naming and formatting. --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 01:21, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Fall! This looks great, and will be really helpful for me when I cap weapon shots.
