  • Hello!

    As you might have seen, I've been working a lot on monsters lately and created the "Chaos Gems Campaign" page which has been quickly completed with the help of Elandal and others. None of us knows how to create a template. Could you (or anyone) please create a template for gem powers so edit become much easier?

    On the other hand, I run into this page:

    http://castleage.wikia.com/wiki/Strategy_Guides/iMacros_and_Arena

    Where a well known guy teaches how to script, something considered cheating and forbidden by all the owners of CA. I strongly suggest to delete pages like that as they don't help at all but ruin the game.

    On the other hand, the main page of this wiki shows HoD heroes in the random display of heroes. It would be nice to remove them so only CA heroes are displayed.


    Thanks for your time and Merry Christmas

    • Agree on deleting the "how to cheat" pages that are only for bots.  The devs have been clear on the illegality there, and bots ruin the experience for many other players.  I marked them with the "Recommended for deletion" category.

  • Hey. I made a few changes into these 2 topics.

    1 major change: How to calculate your Monster Stance is now added to the Monster_Stance page rather than the General_Alliance page, because even without a General Alliance you still have a Monster Stance.

    Also, I wanted to say sorry for updating the Monster_Stance page so many times. As I said in my edit summary, I was a bit confused and wanted to actually preview my page, rather than submitting the Edit done. All clear now. :)

  • I see you and meocontuky seem to be having an edit war over the Heroes page. Maybe you should talk...

    In any case, I'm not sure why you think the first promotion adds 3 levels to a hero's stats, rather than altering them according to the round(base*1.3 + 7) formula. For example, I have a level 32 Barbarus. Base stats would be 94/61. Adding 3 levels would be the 117/79 of a level 35 Barbarus. Round(Base*1.3+7) would be 129/86. My promoted Barbarus is 129/86, which supports the formula. Have you found a case where a hero works differently?

    • Hey, since all 3 of us are talking here (I think we are the only 3 admins that are really active right now) I have a couple things to ask your thoughts on and I am not sure where else to ask them.

      1. A user want to add the following string to a lot of the monsters Activitiy Threshold sections: Text string for chat: 1 Epic 2.3M, 2 Epics 5.1M, 1 Legendary 7.8M

      It is basically just a string that rehashes the the damage needed for different levels, but is easy to copy and paste into a monsters chat.  I am against it because it is yet a 3rd place where this data would have to be updated when/if it changes.

      What do you guys think?


      2. I have been thinking about his for quite a while.  What do you guys think about locking down editing to only people with an account and logged in?  Would cut down on crap that just gets thrown in and we would actually know who is doing the editing.

      Again, what do you guys think?

    • I agree on both, especially #2.

      1. 1: It's hard enough to maintain loot stats, as is, without increasing redundancy. One option, I suppose, would be to reformat the loot threshhold part of the summary template at the top. Make it just the ~100% numbers, and leave the details to the Loot Stats section at the bottom. This would reduce the maintenance workload, as it would reduce redundancy, and might be done in a way to make copy/paste from there practical.
      1. 2: It's impossible to discuss a change when it's anonymous. Most of the "random crap" is by people who mean well, but don't know the right way.

  • Hi Mhogue,

    I am the user that edited the Vermilion page. I am sorry you did not find the info useful. I thought having that info there for easy cut and paste into the chat log of the monster would be good.

    Could you please un-block my IP address?

    Thanks

  • Hey Mhoge. I appreciate you responding so quickly to my inquiry about whether Kobo does or does not give +5% to cripple. The question still has yet to be answered. And I used up all of my stamina and energy potions recently. When I went to their respective wiki pages it was discouraging, because I'd like to go to their pages and quickly see what's the cheapest or easiest way to obtain them. Please continue to help all of us to enjoy our gaming experience!

  • Hi Mark, I've bumped you up to the admin group, since you know your way around here and you've been around enough to know how things should be. This doesn't have any real duties associated with it, but it allows you to do things like protect/delete pages (particularly spam), block users and a few other useful things.

    Let me know if there's anyone else that could use a bump in rights too; I haven't been around as much lately and I'd hate for things to all fall on one person.

    • Thanks Newershadow!

      I wasnt around much for a while either.  Been around more lately.

      Appreciate the bump in priveleges!

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your changes to the template. I've laid it out differently, to take up a bit less room, hopefully it meets your approval.  I've also moved the conquest 5% health thingy to the top template {{MonsterDetails}}. I've tried to make it optional: if the "health" parameter is provided to that template, a new column automatically appears with the 5% value.  Except I've just realized that I've set it to 20% :)  I'll go fix that now.

    I'll also change the MonsterLootDetails template to detect if any of the epicLow parameters are provided, and hide the row if none are. I think the epicLow stuff is useful on the big monsters, but it doesn't contribute much to sea serpents or Mephistopheles :)

    • Ok all done for now. Corvintheus has legendLow=10mil, Battle of the Dark Legion has no "low" values. I'll go through monsters with the templates and add the "health" parameter. I'll also update the template doc and the new monster example page.

        Loading editor
    • Wow conditional table columns are hard! Anyway, done now. Epic3, Epic Summoner and Legend columns will show only if either the low or the high value for the relevant column is provided. The low row will show only if at least one of the five low values is provided.

    • Excellent job! Thanks.  I like how you changed it better.

      I have left you a couple of other messages in other places.

  • Hello, Mark.

    With regard to the edits on that article, the strikethroughs (that I've put there) were used as markings for me later: those that are stated as available in the article and have strikethroughs are currently unavailable, and vice versa.

    I was going to do it but was pretty much occupied at the moment, and it'd be nice if you could do it in my stead, since you're back active again. :)

  • I read the archive message about level 5+ generals. I am returning to CA after having been out of the game for ~3yrs and a bit has changed. I discovered that some generals/heros can bcome capable of leveling beyond lv4. How can additional levels be attained and for which ones?
