|Welcome to LotRO-Wiki!|
Hello, Zephyrians, and welcome to LotRO-Wiki, the Lord of the Rings Online Wiki!
Some useful pointers:
We hope you enjoy editing here!
- My pleasure! Let me know if there's anything I could be doing better. --Zephyrians (talk) 06:26, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
Sunken Labyrinth move
I moved the page Sunken Labyrinth as you requested. I didn't change any of the other pages linking to the old 'The' version of the page because the redirect will send those links to the right place, and there are rather a lot of them. But if you do want to correct any of the references to it, you can see the list here: Special:WhatLinksHere/The_Sunken_Labyrinth. -- Elinnea (talk) 04:29, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
- Sounds good, I can handle that. Thanks tons for the help Elinnea! —Zephyrians (talk) 04:48, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
(Agility) & (MIght) armour in Mordor
- Thanks for your efforts with these items.
- They are a problem which, so far, your solution seems to be the best one!
- The one change I have made has been to "cross link" them a bit.
- See: Item:Rivetted Camail of the Wyrm and its sub pages.
- The primary issue is the pop-up tooltips. A number of us are discussing it over on the Discord server L-wA.

Armour of the Wyrm and Armour of the Abyss
I have modified the 6 pages associated with these items:
- Item:Rivetted Camail of the Wyrm (Agility)
- Item:Rivetted Camail of the Wyrm (Might)
- Rivetted Camail of the Wyrm - no longer an "Item," but a transcluded page.
- Item:Rivetted Camail of the Abyss (Agility)
- Item:Rivetted Camail of the Abyss (Might)
- Rivetted Camail of the Abyss - no longer an "Item," but a transcluded page.
After discussing things over the weekend with other editors those pages now follow the preferred way of dealing with such situations,
Namely using the Template: other techinque, and putting the stats into a table, rather than the double tool-tips.
- In the process of working this out, I also noticed that the two armour sets are identical - both level 337 and both have all the same states!!!
- I've filed a bug report, so I suspect that SSG will change them with the next update, as I don't believe that they intend them to be identical.
- I'll go through and change the other pages to the new format as I have time this week.
- Thanks for the update (and promotion)! Your solution is looking good so far, although the multiple tooltips was definitely interesting (reminds me of creating static tooltips in-game to compare stats). I can see it getting unwieldy with many different versions, though. Item:Dwarf Padded Jacket, for example, lol.
- I based my initial formatting on pages I found in Category:Disambiguation Pages, of which there are a lot still under the Item: namespace. (See, for example, Item:Breastplate of Vigour or Item:Dwarf Robe of Might. Not sure if these are "the other pages" that you're referring to? They also seem to need some work, which I could look into if the Camail transcluded pages are good as a final template.
- Also as a matter of curiosity, which armour sets are you referring to - the Wyrm and Abyss sets? From what I can see they have slight differences - Wyrm sets emphasizes Physical Mastery, Critical Rating, Finesse, etc. while Abyss sets tend to have Parry Rating, Evade Rating, Resistance, etc. Small changes to be sure, but I didn't notice any exactly identical pieces whiel transcribing them.
- Thanks again for what you do! :) —Zephyrians (talk) 01:50, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
- Ooops. You are correct... I missed that difference. The thing which threw me is that they are both the same level and the same Armour value. (I'll have to go fix the table -- cut and paste does have its issues.)
- Looks like what is needed is something like was done back in the Greate River and Rise of Isengard days Comparison_of_Hunter_Armour_Sets and Comparison: Level 75 Light Armour (Tailor's Guild) there have been other similar comparisons done for other classes.
- BTW, I also created the Category: Category: Beorning Armour - not certain exactly how useful it will be, but it may be over time.
- I also just noticed the stacks of tooltips in the Diaambiguation pages. I assume that none of the longer term editors noticed it as they never came up in our discussions over the weekend! That is one of the problems with the WIKI -- people work on what they are currently doing -- i.e. what level their characters happen to be and so don't notice things from the past like that.

New Discord server
Hey Zephyrians - just a heads up that we have a new Discord server that you may want to join. It's for admins, editors, and users of Lotro-Wiki to chat and discuss topics relating to the Wiki. --Gaerlin (talk) 16:46, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
Creatures vs mobs ...
I updated the location section of the Template:Creature so that the Creatures will wind up in the Creature category, and not as Mobs.
- Wm Magill - Valamar - OTG/OTC - talk 01:32, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
One other thing -- please use "(Eryn Lasgalen)" not "(Northern Mirkwood)" I've gone through and transformed the Mobs into Creatures :)
- Thanks for letting me know! The creatures vs. mobs template thing is a bit over my head, but I'm glad you and others on discord have got it figured out.
- Yeah, sorry about the variance with the creature locations. I started popping all the data onto pages just for the sake of having the data, before understanding how the region was laid out. Planning later on making a pass through all those pages I created, to add screenshots, fix things, etc. —Zephyrians (talk) 17:12, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
Quest Walkthrough sections
Hey, I see you‘ve been adding many crucial quests lately, and I appreciate it. Great work!
One thing I‘ve noticed though is that you often leave the Walkthrough sections of the quest box simply blank.
- An example: Quest:Karazgar's Gambit
In the future, please try to fill out that section, even if it only contains basic information about where to find certain quest objectives (coordinates suffice)
- An example of a filled out Walkthrough section: Quest:Chapter 2: Embassies from Many Lands
