Location or not[edit]

Instead of making a revert war, I'll make a discussion, regarding the addition of Category:Locations. I disagree with the addition of the category because while there are these five temples in the game (e.g., Cathedral of Eternal Radiance (location)), this article is about the mechanics that are tied to those five locations. This article is purely about the mechanic of how the five main temple locations in Orr (all called cathedrals) can be contested or not based on the status of five certain meta events and how, when contested, the statues throughout Orr - most of which being skill challenges - will create certain negative effects around them. This article, while including the locations, is not about the locations but the mechanic tied to them, unlike Point of Interest, for example, which is about the type of location and has its tied-on-mechanics as an addendum (the vice versa of this article).

Corruption effects[edit]

The page has a redlink to Balthazar's Rage, so I looked into it. Corrupted Balthazar Statues just cause fire to rain down around them, causing dozens of small AoE attacks within ~1200 units. If you get hit the combat log shows "Corrupted Balthazar Statue hits you for XXX damage with Balthazar's Rage". It also causes 5 seconds of burning.

I'm not sure if it's worth it to make an entire page for a single attack. I feel like it'd be better to add a "Corruption Effects" section below the table, where it gives an outline of the effects. Statues that actually apply effects like Dwayna can summarise the effect and then give a link to the proper effect page. Does this make sense? --Imry (talk) 16:40, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

I fully agree with you. Heck even boss pages don't get new pages for each of their attacks. If you can mark it down nice and clear; no need for a link. -Darqam (talk) 17:05, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Statue Update[edit]

Shouldn't this be re-written a bit since with the Megaserver update statues now just check the nearest temple to see if they should be active instead of their god's one (which might be in another map).
