Item:Quick Gages of the Abyss‎

On this item the pic descrip has 1 essence slot showing but the table indicates 2, is it 1 or 2?

Nevermind looks like it was corected :-)

Udûn quest category

Hi Magill, I was wondering why you decided to transclude the Black Book of Mordor quests into Category:Mordor: Udûn Quests. It results in all of the Udûn quests having all of those quests included in their quest chain (See Quest:A Foothold in Mordor, compared to Quest:Chapter 1.1: Beyond the Black Gate, which is much more reasonable.) I could change the noinclude to cut out the black book quests on the Udûn category page, but I'm not sure why they're there at all, when they're not part of the category. -- Elinnea (talk) 17:00, 6 February 2018 (UTC)

Hard to say now. :) That structure was created back during the beta, before the full extent of things was apparent.
In general, the Black Book quest line, is equilivant to the Epic quest line, and should be treated the same way. Although, I don't know that most players realize that fact, and there is confusion between the Epic and the Black Book story lines.
I don't doubt that the layout wasn't organized that way in the beginning and needs to be fixed.
The question is probably "how?" The Black Book quests are all available upon entering Mordor... even though (I think) the last couple of chapters are Level 115, and probably not all soloable. So far, I have only completed the first three areas, so I don't have a good picture/idea of how they should all be displayed.
I have to look at things, but I believe that the whole The Black Book of Mordor needs to be better integrated itself into the whole.
Mordor itself is a "whole new game" and I know I have not yet quite figured out how to display it on the Wiki. It is much more than an "expansion" of the earlier "LOTRO way."
I've tried to include many of Made of Lions comments about Mordor on various talk pages so that People can see where he's coming from in putting the entire "book" together.
I have to run off to a meeting, but I'll get back to this later.

Fair enough - I know it's hard to plan out a structure when a new game system is in early days. Hopefully now that it's been out for a little while we can pool peoples' experience and figure out how to make it all clear. -- Elinnea (talk) 18:10, 6 February 2018 (UTC)

Mordor Project Page

Hey Magill, as you might've seen on Discord, I've made a Mordor project page. The main goal is to have a central place where we can look up what needs doing for Mordor. Some people here have asked how they can help out, and this should help tremendously with finding a place to start.
I know you've done super much for Mordor, making the whole infrastructure and adding pages for about everything. Are you still actively working on certain topics right now? Could you look over the Mordor Project page for To Do things I have been missing and put your name everywhere it needs to be? (I could've just put your name under every topic, hehe, but I'm not sure what you're actually working on right now.)--Ravanel (talk) 10:58, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Mordor Deed Categories

Hey Magill, could you check out the last thing I wrote under "Location types" on talk:Mordor? Cheers! --Ravanel (talk) 01:08, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Information in categories

Hey Magill. We just talked about this earlier this week, so I don't understand why you keep doing it. Please put information on pages, and pages in categories. So the information in Category:End-game Dailies and Repeatable Quests that you made today, should go into a page. Please, let's keep the wiki consistent and work together. We shouldn't all be doing things our own way, especially when you are aware it's not the standard. It creates chaos and makes the wiki harder to navigate.

In retrospect, disregard what I wrote above, I forgot this is a quest category, and things are done differently there. Sorry! Think it's time for me to head off to bed. Next part is still relevant, though. --Ravanel (talk) 00:55, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

On another note, you might want to reconsider the name of that specific category: 'endgame' is a very temporary word. With a next update, those quests won't be considered endgame anymore. --Ravanel (talk) 00:45, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

Just copying Cordovan's usage of "endgame" -- Update 22 or Strongholds of the North or Update 22 - Legacy of the Necromancer is better.

Treasures of the North

Hey, Magill. A user over on Discord noticed some corrections for File:Treasures of the North.jpg that you had uploaded:

"#14 should be 15.5N, 34.8W at Tham Aeldir. The X is in the correct spot on the map, just the coordinates are wrong. Also, the #20 cache is actually located at 14.0N, 50.0W. Again the X is in the correct spot, but the coordinates listed are wrong."

Could you update this when you can? Neum (talk) 12:21, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Pages maybe needing an axe?

I'm looking around and some pages appear to be not needed and I don't know what to make of them/it. Since you are the only contributor to it I think I'll list them here and you decide.

Magill will be missed

I have recently learned that our friend Magill passed away December 23, 2018. He has been a major contributor to our wiki for the last seven years and rose to the ranks of director shortly after joining. He will be missed. --Lotroadmin (talk) 05:25, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

My condolences, I feel the pain. My own kinship leader passed away as well a short year ago, so I know what it is like. Theogorn (talk) 20:12, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
OMG I just noticed this. I'm so sorry to hear it. He was such a great editor and you could tell he was a nice guy too. People like him are so rare and wonderful. I hope he knows how much we miss and appreciate him. Acatlover2 (talk) 00:03, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
