QuestsEdit

Hey, just noticed you were adding a lot of quests from Ashenvale. Keep up the good work, but if you could, could you use Boilerplate:Quest? It would really improve the quality of the pages, and the plan is to eventually have all quests on WoWWiki in that format. Thanks, and again, keep up the good work! --Mikaka 20:17, 3 January 2007 (EST)

Will do I'll try to get them in that Format but for the alliance quest I'm just pulling them off thottbot but I will fill in what I can find from there... I never leveled a alliance character but for horde I was thinking on starting a new character to get all the quest details. Also how do I add my time stamp on the end of these reply's.

Wowhead has most of the information needed, like progress and completion text, and reputation. Thottbot is really good for finding info to put into the Details section, because so many players use it. Between the two, you can even fill out pages for quests you've never done. Then you can link the article to the two sites using {{elinksquest|1234|1234}} where the first 1234 is the index of the quest on thottbot, and the second 1234 the index of the quest on WoWHead (for quests these are generally the same, but not always on items and NPC's). You can find the index in the address of the page.
And to get the time stamp, just put --~~~~ or click the signature button at the top of the edit text field. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me or someone else. Happy editing! --Mikaka 20:37, 3 January 2007 (EST)

Cool I got a few other questions.... Which way should I edit the quests.... In a list like I have done in Ashenvale or in a guide form like in Durotar. " I personally think I would rather see the quests in a list then we could have a Link to a guide of all the quests at the top of the quest list, but thats just my opinion."

Also what is the official format for adding items. so I can add quest reward items.

Personally, I like the list format. Quest guids are good, but I think they deserve their own page seperate from the region page, as the make the article really long. I'm currently doing something similar with Hillsbrad Foothills. I'm just going down the List of Hillsbrad Foothills NPCs and doing them one by one.
As for items, use Help:Item articles. It's pretty big, but you can cut out a lot of the info you don't need. Check out Elixir of Agony for a pretty cool way of putting the items on the quest page. --Mikaka 21:19, 3 January 2007 (EST)


Thanks again... also I was thinking maybe we could add a shareable yes/no to the quest page--Yelmurc 21:37, 3 January 2007 (EST)

Talk to Hobinheim about that. He's the one that made the questbox. I'm not sure it's really necassary, but you may as well bring it up. --Mikaka 21:46, 3 January 2007 (EST)


Maybe it's in the quest boilerplate, but... what is the "location" section in the Raene's Cleansing (and other) quest pages supposed to indicate? start? end? something random? I ask because there's a location indicated for both the first of the series (which has two possible answers to that - start and end), as well as later in the series, for quests that have either no fixed start point, or no fixed end point. I'm not sure what the value of listing a bare location is without saying what it is pointing at. --Eirik Ratcatcher 17:37, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

The reason I put the location there was so that if someone was having a hard time finding the location they could figure out where to go. I didn't want to list every detail just enough to help then find what they need. if the quest requires more than one location then I think they both should be added and say what they point to. I only gave the End location because thats usally what they would be looking for if they have the quest they should know where it starts. Feel free to add description to the location if you would like. I just think some people might find it helpful the more information the better.--Yelmurc 23:13, 3 June 2007 (UTC)


Quest chains, rewards Edit

You might find some use in looking at the Fallen Hero of the Horde quest chain, for an example of how I wrote up a quest chain. Also, the quests within it, for examples of rewards being specified. I admit to writing up Raene's_Cleansing quest chain. Change it if you feel that is appropriate. --Eirik Ratcatcher 17:41, 29 May 2007 (UTC) link corrected: --Eirik Ratcatcher 18:55, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
