EOTN Title Specific Skills

The 50 EOTN PvE Title Track based skills don't work when trying to create a build. Currently, I have left them as optional and inserted a comment underneath which says about the skills. ---Andyhhp

That's because they haven't been added yet. Єяøהħ 19:47, 10 September 2007 (CEST)

Distracting Strike

Says sword attack, although it is a melee attack. — Skakid9090 02:24, 27 September 2007 (CEST)

Yeah, i noticed that too.--Victory is Mine! .jpgVictoryisyours (talk/pvxcontribs) 13:15, 27 September 2007 (CEST)
That's not a pvx problem, thats a gwbbcode problem. Take it up with them. -Auron 02:22, 5 October 2007 (CEST)

Anthem of Weariness

Recharge 8 --> recharge 10. — Skakid9090 01:32, 1 October 2007 (CEST)

We don't make changes like that, those are all affected by gwbbcode. When they release their update with skill balances, we'll have it updated here. -Auron 02:22, 5 October 2007 (CEST)
Fixed. — Rapta Rapta Icon1.gif (talk|contribs) 23:21, 9 October 2007 (CEST)

PvX Convert/Decode

They both don't work. — Eloc 16:31, 25 December 2007 (EST)

seems like some links are wrong (in the toolbox on the mainpage and the redirects of the submit buttons). just modify the urls manually: add "/wiki" between "...pvxwiki.com" and "/index.php" well.. Vespertine 09:16, 29 December 2007 (EST)
http://www.pvxwiki.com/index.php?title=Special:PvXdecode should link to: http://pvx.wikia.com/wiki/Special:PvXDecode on the main page and the Submit Query button code is broken as well. Rolo 19:23, 3 January 2008 (EST)

Focused Shot

Does not show the "+" in front of the bonus damage. example: Focused Shot --- Monk-icon-Ressmonkey.JPG Ressmonkey (talk) 14:58, 19 January 2008 (EST)

Pious Assault

This skill needs to be updated. [1] Greevar 12:29, 21 January 2008 (EST)

A lot of skills need updating due to the recent update. But its a temporary testing update, so I assume the admins are waiting to update them before a-net says its final. --- Monk-icon-Ressmonkey.JPG Ressmonkey (talk) 12:48, 21 January 2008 (EST)

Extend Conditions

It's missing its end parenthese. --GoD Sig3.jpgGuildofDeals 15:41, 6 March 2008 (EST)

Yeah, and half the skills have incorrect descriptions because of updates. I don't know if anyone is actually updating that anymore. Lord Belar 17:34, 6 March 2008 (EST)
Well updates are brand new, and there's tons of them this time. Gc is gonna have assloads of fun. --GoD Sig3.jpgGuildofDeals 17:36, 6 March 2008 (EST)
Gcard doesn't do those updates. That's why they're 3-4 updates behind. Lord Belar 17:41, 6 March 2008 (EST)
who does then? Antiarchangel 21:06, 6 March 2008 (EST)
Pretty sure it's gwshack ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(sysop) 21:08, 6 March 2008 (EST)
And they happen to suck at it. :/ Lord Belar 21:37, 6 March 2008 (EST)
So anyway we could do it ourselves? Or is it too much code or something? Antiarchangel 17:39, 7 March 2008 (EST)
We just can't. ~~ User:Frvwfr2 frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 17:41, 7 March 2008 (EST)
Isn't the issue that Extend Conditions is missing a paranthese? --GoD Sig3.jpgGuildofDeals 17:48, 7 March 2008 (EST)
And that half the other skills descriptions are outdated. Antiarchangel 18:06, 7 March 2008 (EST)
I believe somewhere that there was mention of developing our own skill database so the community could keep the skill descriptions up to date(though it'd probably be only admins who could edit for various reasons)....PheNaxKian (T/c) Phenaxkian sig phoenix.jpg 20:01, 8 March 2008 (EST)

Light of Deliverance

It still says it has a 2 second cast time a month after the update. ViYsig5.jpg(vĭk'tə-rē ĭz yôrz) 18:47, 8 March 2008 (EST)

once again GWshack's fault, apparently they can't update skill icons for shit. Antiarchangel Antiarchangel No U Sig.png NO U 18:48, 8 March 2008 (EST)

Hex Breaker

Archive:Team - HB Blackout Spike, in the optional list it says it lasts 65s@10. However, it is actually 55 in game. ~~     Frvwfr2     talk    contribs    admin   10:26, 19 June 2008 (EDT)

A lot of skills haven't been updated on PvX since the split between PvP and PvE skills, I'm not sure what PvX is going to do to show the difference between the skills in PvP and PvE. Byakko 02:59, 21 June 2008 (EDT)
Hex breaker isn't a split pve/pvp skill, nor has its duration been changed recently. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(sysop) 03:34, 21 June 2008 (EDT)
Well this Wiki uses historic Skill Data (Back from March 2008) which was way before the Splitting and therefore a skill doesnt need to have been changed recently in order to be displayed wrong here. And thats not the only issue here 07:58, 29 June 2008 (EDT)
Ah, you're right (/doh) I also saw the note about asking about updates above so I guess is best to manually crosscheck wiki's to be sure sorry WB ^^ Byakko 19:20, 22 June 2008 (EDT)

Chilling Victory

Just to bring to attention, the Chilling Victory now has 2 different attribute lines based on PvE and PvP. So it might be something you guys should be able to handle or not. Huynh Sanity 00:05, 11 July 2008 (EDT)

We haven't gotten any split PvE/PvP skills working yet :( We'll figure it out (eventually) ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(sysop) 00:52, 11 July 2008 (EDT)
I'm wondering if it's time to start to put some restrictions on builds being tagged for both PvE and PvP. Maybe adding a type=pve or type=pvp option to PvX code would be the solution? --CJNyfalt 01:34, 11 July 2008 (EDT)
I think the cleanest solution lies in the creation of a skill database on PvX. Last I checked, it was ~80% done; we're waiting on a new test server. Defiant Elements Sig Test 2.JPG *Defiant Elements* +talk 01:36, 11 July 2008 (EDT)
For the time being, can't we just use a [Chilling Victory@<insert rank in wind prayers>] for CV? [[Ace (LVPoW) 00:39, 12 July 2008 (EDT)
Yes, you can, but that only works in this case. Most other split skills didn't just have their attribute changed :( ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(sysop) 00:39, 13 July 2008 (EDT)
Aww beat me to itPuneY 00:37, 18 July 2008 (EDT)
PvP/PvE changes are fixed now? [2] for proof. Look at Watch yourself and look at PvP version of it. Ace(LVPoW) 19:52, 8 August 2008 (EDT)

Skills With "(PvP)"

Not sure if this is the right place...but for the standard build template, if I try to write a skill with a PvP variant (for instance, if I were to write [Aegis (PvP]) the skill doesn't appear. I was wondering if you could change that so that build readers understand the function of the skills in their location. Because a PvP version of a skill cannot be written directly into the build, Aegis in an HA build would still appear to cost 10 energy.


Your allies are healed for 29 Health whenever you cast Monk spells on them.
Template code

Moonlight 14:59, 29 July 2008 (EDT)

This is being discussed on Gcardinal's talk page. PvP variations aren't yet supported by PvX's server. I'm not sure about the specifics, but if I remember correctly, none of the skills have been updated since March 6th, or something close to that. Anyone's welcome to correct me if I'm wrong about that. Cedave bad.png ツ cedave (contributionsbuildpage) 23:27, 11 August 2008 (EDT)

Any comments? Big sadface sig.PNGBiggles Strongfist™ Sysop 08:32, 8 March 2009 (UTC)


Not that important, but:

It's Assassin, not Assasin. Dragnmn talk cont 11:26, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

FC on signets

This barely even matters at all (if at all) but:

You activate Spells and Signets 99% faster. (No effect for non-Mesmer skills with a cast time less than 2 seconds.)
In PvE, the recharge time of your Mesmer Spells is reduced by 300%.
Template code

Skill Signet of Return is not from one of the build professions

you can see here when fast casting is high on signets the cast time goes onto negative numbers whereas with spells the number stays at 0.0. It really doesn't make a difference to anything but you know :P MrMetalFLower-...tlk 15:42, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

it also scales kinda awkwardly, like you can see here the longest casting signets have the lowest number (i.e. furthest into negative number) casting times... MrMetalFLower-...tlk 15:44, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Fast casting scales linearly for signets and follows an exponential model for spells. The behaviour is correct. Misery Cow.pngMisery Says Moo 15:48, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
It's just the whole idea that it's not possible to do something 10 seconds before you've cast it :P OK so it's not possible to get a high enough level for it either but it's just not mathematically sound :P MrMetalFLower-...tlk 15:51, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
If signets scale linearly and spells scale exponentially it is mathematically sound. With linear scaling you can get under 0, with exponential you cannot. It is expected behavior. Dragnmn talk cont 14:29, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
Don't put in gigantic numbers - problem solved. Though, I would be interested in what would happen if you managed to get 34+ FC. It would either assume 0 and be instant cast, or crash the server, I'd imagine. ··· Danny Does Drugs 19:15, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
Right now, the fastest skill activation possible for a signet is just about .11 (.107625) seconds (including cons). The fastest for a spell is .0133875 seconds. ··· Danny Does Drugs 19:29, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
Excluding things like Asuran Scan and Dolyak Signet ofc C:\PvX>Abort, Retry, Panic?Panic Sig Cursor.gif 09:20, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
Yes, excluding instant cast things, obv. ··· Danny Does Drugs 14:21, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Defy Pain

scaling is borked. there are probably others like it. who has access to the skill database now, anyways? last I knew gcard tried to host it at wikipedia, then it got removed. --Mafaraxas 05:38, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

wikia do.I believe TOR made it so the skills rip descriptions from either GWiki or GWWiki, so some skill descirptions are the PvE version, others are PvP version, and others are a mix. ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 09:24, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
I meant that the green number ought to be changing depending on specified strength; instead it stays in general form (90...258...300) regardless. And is not green. Which leads me to believe that it just has to do with how the numbers were put in; the system is probably recognizing the numbers as a static part of the skill description, rather than a variable part. --Mafaraxas 09:54, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

becasue people keep adding different skill issues, make a list and whats wrong with it here ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 14:15, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Spawning power Bugged amount

For the builds involving a ritualist with spawning power you seem to be at a fault, spawning power adds 4% duration to weapon spells per point. As an example at level 10 it will add 40% duration if you add this to a weapon spell that has 20 seconds base it will go to 28 not 24. I figure one of your coders has either set it to 2% or somthing.

Yes, it used to be 2%, but the rit buff update changed it to 4%. PvXcode hasn't updated yet, and this problem is noted here. ToraenTheJanitorToraenSig2.png 23:27, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

"Watch Yourself!"

PvE version still shows PvP version. Zyke-Sig.png 23:20, November 20, 2009 (UTC)

Signet of Agony / Shield of Absorption pvxbig code

The following:

 <pvxbig>[soa][Shield of Absorption]</pvxbig>



Is it possible to change SoA to show Shield of Absorption since Shield of Absorption is used much more than Signet of Agony? Zyke-Sig.png 23:27, November 20, 2009 (UTC)


Spawning Power

Weapon spells are now 4% longer/rank not 2% Ocirne23 16:20, April 26, 2010 (UTC)

We know. It's a wikia issue that we're trying to get them to fix. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 16:25, 26 April 2010

Skill descriptions update

Could any admin please update the skill descriptions to what currently in game?--Aria Frost Panic.jpg talk 13:26, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

they cant -- 13:31, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
Doh! How could be possible? If admins can't, so who can? Nobody? Who did it before?--Aria Frost Panic.jpg talk 14:55, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
wikia--XTREME 15:36, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
we can indirectly, there's an editcopy of the skill DB on here, and wikia occasionally sync it. if you make a list of what skills need updating here I'll get round to it at some point. ~ PheNaxKian talk 15:46, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
The major changes to be done are the mesmer's skills updated in May. The affected skills are already listed on the official wiki. Here's the link: Game updates May 2010. There are also a couple of PvP skills updated in June and July. It's ok? Or you need anyway the list as you asked?--Aria Frost Panic.jpg talk 22:35, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
yeh, that'll do fine. ~ PheNaxKian talk 23:20, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
Perfect. Pls let me know if I can do anything else to help you.--Aria Frost Panic.jpg talk 16:37, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

ah, awesome =p. That'll save a lot of time, thanks Frosty =) ~ PheNaxKian talk 09:39, July 26, 2010 (UTC)
Any news?--Aria Frost Panic.jpg talk 14:57, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
Don't expect anything, I tried e-mailing TOR (he's the guy who sync's the databases) but I don't think they like us really. Frosty 15:02, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
"think"? I'm fairly sure they don't =/. ~ PheNaxKian talk 16:25, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
Did you already tried to contact someone else than TOR? Maybe talking to one of the wikia admins or through their contact page?--Aria Frost Panic.jpg talk 22:28, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
The update requires server access, which means only a few people can do it, and I belive TOR is the only one that makes himself known (though i could be wrong). All i can say is just wait a bit longer. ~ PheNaxKian talk 23:30, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
Got it, let's see what will happen. Thank you!--Aria Frost Panic.jpg talk 07:30, July 30, 2010 (UTC)

Incorrect Pictures

Most notably, Lightbringer Signet and Whirlwind Attack use incorrect icons. PvP skills generally are missing pictures. ToraenTheJanitorToraenSig2.png 14:15, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Fixed! ~ PheNaxKian talk 16:37, 11 August 2011 (UTC)


Fox Fangs

Seems to be a typo somewhere. [Fox Fangs (PvP)] and [[Fox Fangs@# (PvP)] breaks pages (shows Missing skill. Id=90780; Name=Fox Fangs (PvP)). While [Fox Fang] and [[Fox Fang] show the PvP version. Zyke 23:48, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

It seems that the PvE Fox Fangs is missing entirely, [Fox Fangs] and [[Fox Fangs] both show the PvP version. Zyke 00:10, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
See my talk. Frosty/Toraen made a small mistake when updating the editcopy and it wasn't noticed before it was synced with the DB. It'll be fixed when another sync happens (i.e. when me or someone else asks curse to do so). ~ PheNaxKian talk 02:26, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
Bumble said he'd get it in the morning. ToraenTheJanitorToraenSig2.png 07:38, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
Twas my error, forgot to edit the skill id on FF (PvP) and it just took over from the pve version it seems. Frostels 12:17, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Battle Rage

Template code

It should be "Battle Rage ends if you use any non-adrenal skills." --Sewa 15:23, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Fixed in the editcopy. I'll get Bumble to sync it since it has been a while and other fixes have accumulated. ToraenTheJanitorToraenSig2.png 15:42, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Flash Enchantments

Need to be added to the list of skill types. Not sure how it'll look in the code. ToraenTheJanitorToraenSig2.png 02:48, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

shouldn't be a difficult fix. I'll look into the attribute problems and skill types and what not when I get chance. ~ PheNaxKian talk 15:27, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
Is there a place where I can look at the code (even just a copy)? Obtained a copy, nvm. ToraenTheJanitorToraenSig2.png 15:28, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Dervish skills

Something to fix:

  • Eremite's Zeal Eremite's Zeal has type Spell instead of Enchantment Spell.
  • Lyssa's Haste Lyssa's Haste description has not been updated.
  • Aura Slicer Aura Slicer it's a melee attack not a scythe attack.
  • Zealous Sweep Zealous Sweep it's "1 adrenaline" not 1 strike of adrenaline.
  • Mystic Sweep Mystic Sweep Has 1 second activation time for PvE, not 3/4.
  • Guiding Hands Guiding Hands wiki has it as [s], change it if it matters.
  • Attacker's Insight Attacker's Insight remove the second "seconds".
  • Intensity Intensity cast time is 0 not 1.
  • Zealous Renewal Zealous Renewal remove the cast time.
  • Ursan Blessing Ursan Blessing , Raven Blessing Raven Blessing , Volfen Blessing Volfen Blessing Forms now, not skills.
  • Mantra of Signets Mantra of Signets Incorrect skill id pointer.
  • Signet of Mystic Speed Signet of Mystic Speed cast time is 1 not 0.

I already made that request yesterday (there was some settings I asked to be changed so we can have a working RSS feed for RC and asked for the extension to be synced at the same time). Can't hurt to remind though =p. ~ PheNaxKian talk 00:40, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
Added Zealous Renewal. Zyke 09:25, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

Missing Mantra of Signets (PvP) - also the pve version is showing the pvp description (i.e. doesn't have +3 for each signet). -- Chieftain Alex Sig.jpg Chieftain Alex 13:09, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

PvP Icons

Many of the hover over sections for PvP version of skills (such as on this page: Build:Rt/any HA Spirit Channeling) have crosses where the icons should be, but the images exist on the wiki e.g. Death Pact Signet (PvP).jpg. Is it possible to correct this? -- Chieftain Alex Sig.jpg Chieftain Alex 08:39, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

PvXbig does not use the images uploaded to the wiki. It uses a set of images uploaded to the server with the extension. I've already prepared all the skill icons that need to be uploaded. -- Toraen talk 12:58, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
When is this going to happen? Dzjudz sig.png talk 18:26, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Well, I followed the red link and tried to upload a 25x25px icon of Fall Back, but it has yet to change. It's beyond my realm of wiki understanding. I'm not going any further in creating a mess. Vincent Evan [Air Henchman] Vincels.jpg 18:22, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

PvE Skills

Just a small thing, could someone remove the elite border from the Lightbringer Signet in the database? -- Chieftain Alex Sig.jpg Chieftain Alex 08:49, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
The image has already been changed with the PvP patch Phen did. -- Toraen talk 04:55, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
If this is the 11 august patch - Lightbringer signet still has the golden border marking elite status. -- Chieftain Alex Sig.jpg Chieftain Alex 08:37, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

I see no border on this image. If you still do, try clearing your cache. -- Toraen talk 14:42, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

-_- that was embarassing.-- Chieftain Alex Sig.jpg Chieftain Alex 15:09, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
it shouldn't have a border? It's a normal skill (no longer elite), we don't put border's on them >.>? ~ PheNaxKian talk 16:48, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
He was saying that it still had the elite border around it when he viewed it. Then he cleared his cache. -- Toraen talk 16:57, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
oh that's what I get for being unobservant. Sorry I thought you (Toraen) were posting to say you don't see a border and that there should have been. ~ PheNaxKian talk 18:59, 17 August 2011 (UTC)


Wastrel's Collpase Icon

See this [[image]] for pictorial: the downwards hex arrow still displays in the template icon - the hover over image and the image when shown in {{skill pvxicon}} are fine. Chieftain Alex 17:59, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

It's type abbreviation in the database was still set to "he" for hex instead of "sk" for skill. I hate this extension sometimes all the time. -- Toraen confer 01:04, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Found a few more + added to the patch: Mind Wrack, Mind Freeze, Mind Shock, Mist Form, Ward Against Harm, Ride the Lightning, Enraged Smash, Obsidian Flame, Illusion of Haste, Illusion of Pain, Web of Disruption, Lightning Hammer, Elemental Flame, and Slippery Ground -Chieftain Alex (talk) 11:51, 13 April 2020 (UTC)

Soul Reaping description

Uses an old description of this attribute - Soul Reaping no longer affects spirits.

12 + 1 + 3
Gain 16 Energy whenever a non-Spirit creature near you dies, up to 3 times every 15 seconds.
Template code

Oh right. Yeah the primary attribute descriptions were always there in pvxcode, just hidden before, and incomplete. Prior to 2007 November this description was correct :D
Editcopy updated to:
$desc .= '<span class="expert">Gain <b>' . $attr_list['Soul Reaping'] . '</b> Energy whenever a non-Spirit creature near you dies, up to 3 times every 15 seconds.</span><br/>';

Spawning Power description

Inaccurate spawning power description. Also affects most other summoned creatures, including asura summons, excluding ebon vanguard assassin.

Creatures you create have 48% more Health, and weapon spells you cast last 48% longer.
Template code

Editcopy updated to "Spirits and minions" to "Creatures".
$desc .= '<span class="expert">Creatures you create have <b>' . (4 * $attr_list['Spawning Power']) . '%</b> more Health, and weapon spells you cast last <b>' . (4 * $attr_list['Spawning Power']) . '%</b> longer.</span><br/>';

Fast Casting description

Wrong fast casting formula. Signets cast as quickly as spells.

12 + 1 + 3
You activate Spells and Signets 53% faster. (No effect for non-Mesmer skills with a cast time less than 2 seconds.)
In PvE, the recharge time of your Mesmer Spells is reduced by 48%.
Template code

This formula is based on gww:Fast Casting per below:
$desc .= '<span class="expert">You activate Spells <b>' . (100 - floor(pow(0.955, $attr_list['Fast Casting'])*100)) . '%</b> and Signets <b>' . (3 * $attr_list['Fast Casting']) . '%</b> faster. (No effect for non-Mesmer skills with a cast time less than 2 seconds.)</span><br/>';
$desc .= '<span class="expert">In PvE, the recharge time of your Mesmer Spells is reduced by <b>' . (3 * $attr_list['Fast Casting']) . '%</b>.</span><br/>';
The values are afaik identical to the table. -Chieftain Alex (talk) 19:46, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
We've tested this in december and found identical casting times of spells and signets. For ease of comparison we used spells and signets with the same casting time (resurrection signet vs. minions, signet of return vs. resurrect) and checked the casting time via slowed down video to make sure we're not falling trap to our gut feeling. --Krschkr (talk) 22:12, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
Oh nice. Might be a good idea to update GWW then. -Chieftain Alex (talk) 23:32, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
I take it your proposed revised code would therefore be:
$desc .= '<span class="expert">You activate Spells and Signets <b>' . (100 - floor(pow(0.955, $attr_list['Fast Casting'])*100)) . '%</b> faster. (No effect for non-Mesmer skills with a cast time less than 2 seconds.)</span><br/>';
$desc .= '<span class="expert">In PvE, the recharge time of your Mesmer Spells is reduced by <b>' . (3 * $attr_list['Fast Casting']) . '%</b>.</span><br/>';
mathwise the first % uses the same numbers on EN as DE. -Chieftain Alex (talk) 22:18, 3 April 2020 (UTC)



Anniversary Update

Evidently we've got 10 new elites now. skillname_db.php and skill_db.php will both need updating. There were some dodgy looking concise description vs full descriptions on GWW so I haven't yet proposed a patch for these. -Chieftain Alex (talk) 06:26, 24 April 2020 (UTC)

Also we'll need both the img_skills (64x64px) and img_thumb (40x40px) folders updated with the new icons, preferably with gold borders in higher res than the garbage ones I've uploaded on GWW. -Chieftain Alex (talk) 06:30, 24 April 2020 (UTC)
Looks like someone already started a merge request but it's missing quite a bit. I've submitted my own merge request to them to get all the skill data sorted but I don't have images. It occurs to me that we should probably link your Gitlabs for PvXRate and PvXCode on this page somewhere so we don't end up with a bunch of different forks and let people request access. -Toraen (talk) 06:45, 24 April 2020 (UTC)
Working on the images now, going to use Horrible's original uploads and try to preserve the quality as I resize. Edit: Images are now part of the merge request. I did my best to preserve quality but my eyes+irfanview knowledge aren't what they used to be. -Toraen (talk) 07:15, 24 April 2020 (UTC)
How long this merge take? Literally untheorycraftable >:( Amorality (talk) 20:25, 29 April 2020 (UTC)
Well after the merge is accepted (which it has been), it's usually like a day or two before it hits the live wiki.
Bad sign though, the test pvxwiki is appearing blank. For comparison here is the test guildwiki. Probably indicates there's an error somewhere in the submission. -Chieftain Alex (talk) 21:40, 29 April 2020 (UTC)
Oh the update is live. -Chieftain Alex (talk) 22:00, 29 April 2020 (UTC)

4/30 Update

Anet spites us one more time. Also we had Shadow Theft wrong. -Toraen (talk) 15:43, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

With the following update, "Together as One!" had its activation tooltip removed and "one" is now capitalised. I've added it to the branch. -Chieftain Alex (talk) 23:04, 1 May 2020 (UTC)
Merged and live. -Toraen (talk) 12:47, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

Over the Limit

Throws an error if you try to use it in a pvxbig tag. -Toraen (talk) 16:52, 5 June 2020 (UTC)

Fix is live. -Toraen (talk) 16:41, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

Heroic Refrain

Isn't scaling correctly. Anything other than rank 0 Leadership causes it to display rank 15 effects. Entry seems correct in DB (forks should be @0..@15) other than an errant space at the start.

  • @0: Heroic Refrain
  • @6: Heroic Refrain
  • @12: Heroic Refrain
  • @15: Heroic Refrain
  • @20: Heroic Refrain

This applies to all of the PvE elite skills as far as I can see. I expect it's because PvE skills have their own fork in the code to calculate ranks. Surprised we didn't notice this sooner, but then again we've all got an addiction to bars being at 20 with heroic.. -Chieftain Alex (talk) 15:40, 20 June 2020 (UTC)
Here's the fix.
Line 763: Add $profession into the following
		gws_adapt_description($desc, $extra_desc, $name, $attribute, $profession, $attr_list, $type, $pve_only);

Line 1129: Between the kurzick and the Lightbringer lines
		} else if ($profession !== 'No Profession' && gws_main_attribute($profession) == $attribute ) {
			// 2020 anniversary elite skills use profession primary attributes
			if (isset($attr_list[$attribute])) {
				$attr_lvl = $attr_list[$attribute];
				if (preg_match_all('|([0-9]+)\.\.([0-9]+)|', $desc, $regs, PREG_SET_ORDER)) {
					foreach ($regs as $fork) {
						list($all, $val_0, $val_15) = $fork;
						$pos = strpos($desc, $all);
						$desc = substr_replace($desc, fork_val($val_0, $val_15, $attr_lvl), $pos, strlen($all));
			// or adapt the 0..15 form to 0..12..16 values if the attribute level has not been specified
			else {
				$desc = preg_replace_callback('|([0-9]+)\.\.([0-9]+)|', 'desc_replace', $desc);

I've stuck a deletion request on my gitlab fork since idk how to use gitlab to properly catch up with the recent patches. -Chieftain Alex (talk) 16:09, 20 June 2020 (UTC)
Copied to mine in addition to the strength fix above. Please make sure I didn't forget a brace somewhere I'm very tired. -Toraen (talk) 10:39, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
Line 1092 needs $profession adding inbetween $attribute + $attr_list. -Chieftain Alex (talk) 14:14, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
