Splitting each virtue into separate articles doesn't seem like the best approach. I know that it's nice to have a "tooltip" like box for each one but it's pretty annoying to have to go to a separate page to see the various rank stats and not be able to see all the info side by side. Could we move them into single articles with the ranks in a table and just show the rank 1 stats in the box? --Hellis 14:20, 22 March 2007 (PDT)

The only advantage of splitting the virtues into separate articles if you want to link them in another article like a class guide or a special build for a certain task. I'm not a huge fan of linking/redirects to a section of an article. I think it should be just an article. I don't think you need to separate the different ranks of skills/traits into separate articles. --Hinney 16:29, 22 March 2007 (PDT)

I don't know if I understand the question, but doesn't the page Virtues do what you want? Everything is in a table, and they all link to the specific tooltip if you want to see it.

  • no as i understand it, most of us don't see a sense in creating a page for each rang of each virtue. Just one page pro virtue would do fine with tooltip info at the top and a table with values for each rang... does it make sense now? =) --Xander 04:56, 23 March 2007 (PDT)

It makes sense, but that is what a page like Charity is for. We can put the tooltip info at the top, all the values for each rank are in a table. But I don't see the point in not creating an additional link to each rank. We can have every outside link point to the Charity page, and all the data is there for the user. But then if they do want to see what an individual rank looks like, they can click to see it. I think this is consistent with what we've done with class skills and such.

  • let me try to put it another way: can you imagine a situation when you would need to link to a certain rang of a virtue?
    i can imagine this with skills, since there are no rangs, but not with virtues... --Xander 07:32, 23 March 2007 (PDT)

Revamping this area a bit.

I built the virtue info on the lorebook and I don't want that much work wasted to a site I won't be contributing to so this area *WILL* be the top info reference on Virtues once I'm done migrating what I did there to this wiki.

On the lorebook, the Traits and Virtues areas were hit #3 of all hits on the site -- right behind Main_Page and Classes..
