Awakened Spy picture[edit]

Hello, the Awakened Spy looks like Miniature Orrian Baby Chicken, yes, but it also has additional dropping tar on itself. Sime (talk) 22:54, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

Can confirm this because the picture I originally saw was black on black which bothered me to the point where I hijacked my bf's computer to take a picture of it heh. Probably would work for trivia though. - Doodleplex 00:27, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
Gosh, it's so dark I missed that tar effect. I mostly replaced it with the miniature image to avoid having extra zoomed in screenshot, since the poor baby is always near walls, but I'll upload my best effort. Thanks for noticing, Sime. β€”Ventriloquist 06:39, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

Spectral Displacement and others[edit]

Yes, abilities definitely transfers during Gold (<8min) timer and pretty sure they do during Silver (<16m) timer, but I feel like I have not been seeing them transfer during Bronze (16m+). Also, it seems those abilities go away at some point. I'll look to may more specific attention to the timing and may update in the future. Adeira Tasharo (talk)

Hm. I'll do some testing as well, at least for bronze timers. Let's get to the bottom of this! β€”Ventriloquist 13:58, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
Alright so, here is how it works. During gold and silver times, any bosses killed give their special abilities to other champions, and they retain them. As soon as bronze timer hits, the abilities disappear from the champions, and the champions themselves don't transfer anything. β€”Ventriloquist 10:17, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

Oops! Regarding the BB turret[edit]

Sorry, I totally forgot to make it clear that the turret works mechanically like an NPC, and you even reminded me to do that in the talk page! Thank you for correcting it and making it more clear. Muirellthe Moon Geode.png 15:17, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

It's no problem, really, no worries :) Thanks for adding the stolen skills, they're really one of those things we always lack in articles. β€”Ventriloquist 16:08, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
Of course! Hunting about for stolen skills is actually one of my favorite things to do for the Wiki these days! I'm not quite sure how much use the information ends up being.. but it's really fun to do it anyway! Muirellthe Moon Geode.png 17:12, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
Hey, as long as those section-stubs for stolen skills are filled, it's useful! β€”Ventriloquist 17:46, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

Attribute combination or prefix or...?[edit]

Hey I wanted to make a template maybe for attribute combinations since there is now a page for Harrier, Viper, and Sinister, but I saw that they are prefixes not attribute combinations? Should I make a Template:Prefixes or a Template:Attribute combinations, what do you think is better? Cheers~ --Paw (talk) 14:13, 24 August 2018 (UTC) PS: I am asking you because of your edits on Harrier.

"make a template" as in a navigation template between them? How about "Template:Prefix attributes nav"? --Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 14:20, 24 August 2018 (UTC)
Also nice job. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 14:20, 24 August 2018 (UTC)
I think Alex's suggestion is okay, yeah. The template will surely be useful once we get a few more prefix articles. β€”Ventriloquist 14:36, 24 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank you both! I will do that. --Paw (talk) 14:52, 24 August 2018 (UTC)
But wait, isn't "prefix attributes" a bit double? --Paw (talk) 14:53, 24 August 2018 (UTC)
Hm, true. Especially since the intro sentence on Attribute combinations states that they are commonly referred to as 'prefixes'. So basically we're saying "Template:Prefix prefixes nav", heh. I'd go with "Prefixes nav" then, unless Alex has something more to add. β€”Ventriloquist 15:10, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

Ambient Dialogue in ??? in the Jahai Bluffs[edit]

You said that you didn't think there was any, but as far as I could tell there was (though maybe it was triggered by something I didn't see). I had a few examples but I forgot where I wrote them down. I think it bears investigating. ~ Trevor95251 21:47, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Oh, sure thing then, I just removed it since I saw it was an empty section, so I assumed someone just copied it from the template article. I'll put it back with a section-stub :) β€”Ventriloquist 22:06, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
Thank you! I'd love to contribute but it seems I can't play the new episode for a while. Thanks, computer. :/ ~ Trevor95251 14:13, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

File:Shard of Duskk.png[edit]

Did you happen to datamine this? I'm thinking of improving the SAB boom box articles, and we're missing the rest of the skill icons (or I'm failing to find them). This one's identical with skill 1, with the exception of black edges. I'm not familiar with datamining myself :/ - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 16:27, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Oof, that was back in 2016, so I believe I did datamine icons myself back then. Nowadays another user does it (you can find newest icons here), so I have no need to delve into that myself. As for your request, are you referring to World 1 Super Boom Box and 2? From what I can tell, they all have icons? β€”Ventriloquist 16:28, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
Both the regular and tribulation mode boom boxes. The skill icons in those articles (some of them) are using those older music note icons, which is not the case in-game. Instead, they look like this: File:User J.P. boombnotes.jpg - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 16:35, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
Ah, those do indeed look new. I'll post it on our Discord in hopes of someone finding the icons. Thanks for noticing! β€”Ventriloquist 16:38, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Re: Vigil's Honor[edit]

All ascended accessories should give stabilizing matricies. Coral Choker and Blood Ruby Pendant are examples that do, as well as the various LS3 map backpieces. --Choco-muffin (talk) 19:47, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

Are you sure that's correct? I see I've added the matrices to some of those accessory pages, so it's possible I was wrong, which is supported by this dev comment, as well as the in-game description of the matrices which points out they only come from salvaging ascended rings. β€”Ventriloquist 19:44, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I recently salvaged a bunch of LS3 ascended trinkets due to map currency overflow, as well as after completing the Vigil collection. I still have a couple more to break. --Choco-muffin (talk) 19:47, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
I've asked around and found confirmation for what you're stating. I reverted my edit, so thanks for setting the record straight! β€”Ventriloquist 19:48, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
No problem. It could be that core trinkets don't generate matricies. I could burn a couple guild commendations or laurels as an experiment. ---Choco-muffin (talk) 19:51, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
Confirmed Durmand's Pen and Thackeray Family Crest both drop matricies. I've updated those pages. Could create a template if it's confirmed (either by devs or users) for ascended salvaging. Are there any other items that need to be tested? --Choco-muffin (talk) 20:45, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
As was mentioned in this re-revert, it doesn't have a 100% drop rate, which is why sometimes it drops, and sometimes not. It's not inherently linked to the accessory, it seems. β€”Ventriloquist 21:02, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
I noticed the re-vert. The only problem is that when I salvaged Vigil's Honor, it gave me a single orichalcum ore. That should not be possible for the item type and not listed in the drop rate reaserch. It leads me to believe that it does not use the same salvage table. --Choco-muffin (talk) 05:57, 25 November 2018 (UTC)
Hm, that does seem odd. If I recall correctly, they were made salvageable at a much later date, so it's possible something buggy happened. β€”Ventriloquist 10:53, 25 November 2018 (UTC)
Got confirmation from a GM that it's a bug.

 Hi [redacted]
 After investigating the item in question, I discovered that unlike most ascended trinkets, this item
 appears to have a different salvage table, when salvaged you can receive materials such as the orichalcum
 ore (which is a bug).  If you'd like I'd be willing to replace the item for you? All I need you to do is
 discard (not destroy, trade, or salvage) the Orichalcum ore and once I've confirmed its deletion, I can
 send the ascended trinket your way.
 Let me know what you think
 P.S. I've also included a link to the items wiki page if you'd like to see for yourself.

I think we can close out for now until they patch it. Thanks! --Choco-muffin (talk) 03:53, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
Lol so part of their proof was quoting my edit to the wikipage which i made after reading your comment. Circular logic wins. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:08, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
Hmm, after re-reading it a bit, not sure if they actually looked into the salvage table itself or only looked at the wiki page. --Choco-muffin (talk) 18:27, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Bag of Tournament Claim Tickets[edit]

Hey you created all of the Bag of Tournament Claim Tickets pages, but none of them have a source and none of them show up in the API anymore. Where did you find them? - Doodleplex 03:46, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

They popped up in the api three years ago, back when WvW tournaments were a thing. Since the api borked a while ago, they never resurfaced. Feel free to tag them for deletion, it doesn't seem they were ever planned to go live. β€”Ventriloquist 16:15, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
Okie dokie, thanks for the info, will do! - Doodleplex 01:44, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
I can at least vouch for their existence in the past. I keep a cumulative record of API entries. 03:38, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

About the Guild Chat - Episode 60 Revisions[edit]

Heyo, new editor here! It seems we were editing around the same time and some of what I wrote from 47m46s up to 48m46s got overwritten by your edits. Should I weave back in what I had with what you wrote or just leave it as is, since you ended up transcribing past me? --Xaverian (talk) 23:31, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Hey, and welcome aboard! Yes, we had something called an edit conflict, which is when two editors who were editing at the same time saved their edits. Obviously, the edit that was saved first is the one that was published (yours), while I got the 'edit conflict' notice. Since I transcribed a bit more than you did, I added mine to the live version, along with some additional lines I caught in the dialogue.
I took another look at both of our edits, and kind of merged the two in the latest revision seen here. I kept your part of the edit (the whole thing you transcribed), as well as mine, which extended past yours. Thanks for transcribing! :) β€”Ventriloquist 10:59, 7 December 2018 (UTC)


I often finish up edits/research at a ridiculously late hour, and it seems it shows! I feel like every other edit of mine you've had to fix a spacing issue I goofed on. Thanks, and sorry! Muirellthe Moon Geode.png 12:38, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

No worries Muirell! Redundant white spaces are barely a mistake β€” what you add to the articles is far more important than any mistake you might make. Thank you for your continuous work! β€”Ventriloquist 12:44, 10 March 2019 (UTC)
