I am wondering how to handle the damage amounts for each spell/art level (app 1--master 2). The problem I face is that they vary, depending on the stats of the character from which they are viewed. The differences may not be much, but neither are the differences from one level to the next.

I guess we could always view them with no equipment to help normalize them but that is asking a lot of random contributers. --SwordMage 08:14, 6 December 2006 (CET)

All we can do is our best. If/when they get the spell themselves they will see the damga that is correct for them. Would everyone feel better if I added a link in the template to a page that we can use to explain how spell damage is calculated and what affects it? --Florence Sopher of Lucan D'Lere (talk/contribs) 19:56, 6 December 2006 (CET)
I guess I am just wondering what the bang for the buck is of trying to collect the info on per level damage is since any given person can probably only fill in one or two levels. As long as we can live with the inconsistancies and the unreported levels, it can't hurt to have them there.
I wasn't so worried about the difference between what we list here and any given character's experience, but rather the internal consistency of the list for any given spell. That said, I don't necessarily think we need the disclaimer on every page. --SwordMage 23:19, 7 December 2006 (CET)

Listing spells without levels Edit

Making class spell lists are very unhelpful without the levels noted next to them. If you want to make the site useful in anyway considering spells, list the levels and order they are recieved.

go to the individual class pages, lists by level are there. this is the category where everything that uses the {{SpellInfomation}} template gets added too --Uberfuzzy 13:33, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Spell Names maybe change soon Edit

Spell Naming Conventions
What we are looking to do is move to a standard naming convention. So instead of say having Ice Comet, Ice Nova and Bolt of Ice there would be one spell line called Ice Comet. You would see in your spell book Ice Comet I, Ice Comet II, etc. Combat text on the other hand would just refer to Ice Comet without the version number.

Listing external sources for info Edit

I have compiled what I think is a usable form of the class spells and abilities, which is available through the EQ2Mission classes page I have created. This allows what I think is a far more useful list-oriented format for these things, which the wikia pages seem to not use.

Is it proper to link to external sites? I would suggest linking to some of the others out there in addition to this one I wrote, but from looking at them, I find most are either incomplete, outdated, or inconsistent with the new spell names or descriptions. And none of the sites I've found allows filtering by level so you only see the spells useful at that specific level, including ones that "topped out." --Quicktiger 20:41, February 7, 2011 (UTC)

In general we try to avoid linking to external sites on articles unless it's in the form of a credit template when information is taken from another source. It's fine on a talk page like this, but in order to not favor some other fan sites over others we generally avoid such links on actual article pages. The main exception is the Community Portal which is set up specifically as a neutral place for links to other sites. That link for example would probably best fall under Players and Toons.

Also as an aside, in the future please sign your comments using --~~~~ or the signature button. --lordebon 21:48, February 7, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks muchly, I'll add a link to my site on the community page. I will say that the spell list on EQ2i might need some work. While all the information may be technically useful, the use cases of "what do I get at level 90" or "what doesn't get replaced by the time I hit 90" are unanswered on a lot of sites, EQ2i included. --Quicktiger 04:24, February 9, 2011 (UTC)

There is a list of non-upgraded spells as of T8, that might be a good place to start if you want to update it to T9. Once it's into shape we can maybe add a link to it on the main page under the spells heading. --lordebon 16:02, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
