I know you...[edit]

but I never knew you had an account here!

oya? Who is this? <>Sparky, the Tainted 03:02, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

New Signature[edit]

Woo..! -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 21:03, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

It burns my eyeballs :( -- User Vanguard VanguardLogo.pnganguard 21:04, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
lol, thanks... I was thinking it might need a new color as well :P -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 21:06, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Possibly less painful! -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 21:14, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

That works.-- User Vanguard VanguardLogo.pnganguard 21:16, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Duration and/or end.[edit]

All enchantments have effects throughout the duration or at the end; no enchantments have only an initial effect. User Raine R.gif Raine - talk 21:26, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Fixed. My bad for not reading the "and/or." -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 21:42, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Gray text[edit]

You might want to get a consensus here first before you go replacing all the gray text on skills, just to make sure you don't get anyone pissed off and thus go through lots of reverting. :/ Just a thought. The Cabal 03:46, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, I don't think it's that big of a deal. I just got annoyed that some are using grey and some are not. Consistency is good. I figure since we use green where it's used in-game, we might as well use grey where it's used as well. -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 03:49, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Ha, I didn't even realize that. Kinda makes what I said pointless... Just a thought like I had said. The Cabal 03:58, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Ok, I put up a section on the page. Thanks for the thoughts! :D -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 04:02, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Ha, no problem. :) The Cabal 04:05, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

I have an account now![edit]

You know who this is. Or you should. Previously Unsigned 08:18, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

lol, nice name. -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 15:35, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Removing links in concise descriptions[edit]

You shouldn't do that; we might decide to show concise descriptions in skill lists in the future and then the links would be missing. poke | talk 16:21, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

According to GWW:SKILLS, we don't put links in concise descriptions. (Also, skill lists already use concise.) -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 16:25, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
Oh, where is that written on the guideline page? poke | talk 16:32, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
In the example skill info box for Broad Head Arrow (and maybe somewhere else, that's just where I remember it). -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 16:35, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
Ah I see, but I think that example doesn't really make that clear.. I started a discussion on GWWT:SKILLS about it. poke | talk 16:59, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
Alright, I've put the link removing on hold until it is decided. -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 17:00, 4 October 2009 (UTC)


You're sure that's what you wanted to do? - J.P.FeedbackTalk 01:45, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Hah, not at all. I should check preview before doing that. -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 01:49, 5 October 2009 (UTC)


Parasitic Bond, Enfeeble and Weaken Armor will not trigger the effects of Discord, contrary to the skills in game description. (Please see this for yourself before deleting this edit.)

Yes they will, now stop EDITING. 04:57, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

What? -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 01:52, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Can you get online?[edit]

Such as right now? I want to show you something. It will take LITERALLY less than 5 minutes. Maybe even less than 3! Previously Unsigned 01:11, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Not really, I shouldn't even be here right now (and this is late :P). -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 23:13, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
I am still waiting... get online! You're never on now! Previously Unsigned 10:10, 13 October 2009 (UTC)
I can't get on. :P -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 01:19, 14 October 2009 (UTC)


While you're fixing the overlinking in skill pages, please note that Enchantment redirects to Enchantment spell, so only Enchantment spell needs a link and Enchantment doesn't. Happy editing! --Silver Edge 18:29, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Ah, thanks. I thought of that for a second and then I figured I'd play it safe in case it wasn't a redirect. :P -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 18:31, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

you saved me time[edit]

you know by leaving like that, I realized, you saved me time! then I didn't have to make that picture and I probably would have rambled on about shit. JUST TELL ME TO SHUT UP IF THAT HAPPENS. /noyell Previously Unsigned 00:40, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Hah, I generally have to get off at about 11... My internet shuts off at that point so I leave a little early (5...9...10 minutes) to make sure I can say good night to everyone. -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 00:20, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
Ha ha, you used the attribute thing... (5...9...10 minutes). Previously Unsigned 00:40, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
lol, it's really useful! I use it 2...34...42 times a day. -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 00:49, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

can you get online[edit]

I'm going to ask you something totally unrealistic and ridiculous but HERE'S A TRY ANYWAYS. Previously Unsigned 00:38, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

It may not be likely. -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (τѧιк) 00:51, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Wrong Sparky.sorry--Neil2250 User Neil2250 sig icon5.jpg 15:57, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Does that mean the text that appears saying, "X has been captured?[edit]

Yes. ____ have captured the Green Amber Mine! Usually it says Refined Amber Mine, well technically it just says whatever it's called on the map. Previously Unsigned 00:45, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

So sometimes the name on the minimap changes when it's capped? -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (τѧιк) 00:01, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
No, the name is the same. The white text that comes up says Green Amber Mine, usually it says Refined Amber Mine. Previously Unsigned 19:49, 1 May 2010 (UTC)
That's confusing, lol. I'll try to find it in-game, I'll probably understand it more then. :P -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (τѧιк) 21:36, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

For True[edit]

Guided Weapon makes a good sig picture. -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 03:13, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

I see it and I think, "OM NOM NOM NOM" User Raine R.gif is for Raine, etc. 03:15, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
Kinda looks like Mike Shinoda. --Elven Chaos Elven's Talk Page 05:12, 13 June 2010 (UTC)


I'm gonna give you the benefit of a doubt and assume you didn't see the section at the bottom of his talk. But now you have. --JonTheMon 02:40, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I was about to post a section saying exactly that on your page, but I decided to check RC before I clicked Save Page this time just in case. Thank you, and sorry for any trouble. :) -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 02:43, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Activation time[edit]

Is it better to put that note on all skills with activation times, or on Attack skill? --JonTheMon 20:44, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

It's technically on Attack skill already, it just isn't explicitly stated on how activation times are affected. I figure since apparently not many people know, it would be better for the information to be on the pages. Though I agree, it is a bit excessive. (It bothered me that it was on all the bow attacks, but not on any others.) -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 20:51, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
Yeah. I'm not sure where the best place for it would be. Since Attack skill is waaay up the tree from any of these attacks. I suppose it should be on all the pages, or at least their attack categorization pages. --JonTheMon 20:58, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
I personally think the note is most useful on attack skills that interrupt (although with Wailing Weapon or Warmonger's Weapon or Dazed, that could be anything) and Staggering Blow / Protector's Strike (useful for Dwarven Battle Stance). So, I don't know where to put it, either. -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 21:22, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Capes thing[edit]

Can you at least put the text that you deleted/removed on the talk page? You just deleted it like bam, thats kinda rude bro. Im on my phone so theres no way for me to copy text or anything to ensure that I have it for later.Toko the Man 02:16, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Sure thing. I normally do, but I'm tired. -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 02:21, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

The word you're after[edit]

Is "every", as it should be "Every". And if you know anything about grammar you would know "Renewal:" isn't the start of that sentence. - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 02:34, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

There is no reason to assume that "Renewal:" does not start the sentence in question, considering it is probably not notation for a character in a play named Renewal. Also, starting a sentence with "and" is not grammatically correct. –~=Ϛρѧякγ AHHH! (τѧιк) ←♥– 04:24, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

I've been dragging my heels over editing Angorodon's Gaze out of the touch ranger page since it went over to Soul Reaping, and much to my pleasure I see you've already done an excellent job for me. Thanks! :) Cirian 12:58, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

No problem, thanks for the thanks! :D –~=Ϛρѧякγ AHHH! (τѧιк) ←♥– 04:13, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

About monster skills[edit]

It's here. I agree with most of changes which you have done, but please explain, in which way the presence of monster skills have disrupted this article? Maybe you look at the article from such level of consistency which is not available for me yet... My point is simple: either we need to specially emphasise that the skill list contains only the player-available skills (knockdown, in this particular case), or need to include all the player- and monster skills together. In first case, the monster skills with discussed effect are supposed to be mentioned somewhere else like a separate article, but we don't have such special articles right now. --Slavic 03:58, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Heya! I'm not sure if this is the best place to ask, I don't really know when or if a consensus was reached regarding the placement of monster skills on effect pages, but that's how all the conditions/enchantments/hexes are, as well. I think it may be similar to how the "related skills" sections of player skills don't include monster skills, but I don't think that's a great reason. Since there's a lot more monster skills than there used to be, adding them all would probably be disruptive to most players looking for skills that cause knock down, a condition, an enchantment, or a hex; instead, it may be a good idea to make a special page for them like you suggested (with a link from each main effect page). It would be a fairly large project, but it could and, maybe, should be done. –~=Ϛρѧякγ AHHH! (τѧιк) ←♥– 17:07, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Official forum suggestions[edit]

I had an idea to incorporate the feedback suggestions into the official Guild Wars forum. As you and a a small group of others love to suggest things, and the feedback space pretty much dead, it would be a better place to get our ideas visible and a better fit than the wiki. I posted a a topic here, and if I could get your support, thanks! I think the idea will go nowhere but if enough agree maybe their stance will change or they can humor us! What do we have to lose!?
