  • Hi Mechemik, i took my time to remove the false information about the witcher 1 characters' eye color - I have removed the information where it was written "Brown" and the characters use the standard eye template (light greyblue color, with the outer rims appearing brownish).

    Those eyes appear blue every time, but I reckon leaving them with no eye color is the best, because "Brown" is clearly a false information. I trust you won't revert the changes - because you would just be bringing back a false info, whereas this wiki is supposed to contain just true information.

  • You seem to have removed it. Might I know why?

    • If you read my note why, in short almost every weapon (with the exception of crafted witcher swords) the damage is dependent on one's level and stats. In short, unless you have the actual formula (there are some here that have them) it does no good to put "Damage is 90" or so when for another it could be 120 or 30. Also locations themselves are randomized and no guarantee it'll appear at hidden treasure markers (those tend to spawn random weapons).

    • I asked a friend if he found it there and he said that he did find it there. I guess that it's pure luck we found it on the same spot... But thanks : )

    • No problem. Sadly I don't have access to the files to show what percentage chance something can appear at a location as I'd love to add that in at least :(

    • Maybe post a notice in hopes someone who does can help you out? Just a suggestion, but it might work out ; )

  • Hi Mechemik, I've already mentioned that Saskia's eye color is blue, and posted a picture as a proof (zoom in)...her eyes are definitely blue and NOT brown....

    • I think I found part of the issue why some of the eyes look weird. These are just a few I brown based ones I pulled from the texture files.

      Random eyes tw1

      As you can see the top row are light brown, but the middle one has hints of blue/gray on the outside, and the bottom picture has light brown eyes with gray on the edges, but then has a gray/blue eye texture on the same file itself. The kicker is without connecting all the 3D models within a 3D program and knowing which model uses which texture(s) it's almost impossible to know which eye color they're using on a given character if it's not colored in and only has the 1 eye color (like Foltest's texture appears to show only a green eye).

      Nice post, thank you. Yet I've never seen the light brown eyes actually used in game....all the characters use just the top right grey/green/lightblue eyes....and it is definitely not brown like in Celina's description (proof is in the romance video about her on her page)...

  • I've been contributing to wikis and tvtropes for awhile now and I try to only add information that can be backed up by the source material. while the things I write are based on my own observations they are, nevertheless, coming from the material. I added an abilities section to Gaunter O'Dimm because it's very common to put such a section on the important character pages for most Wiki's you care to name. I spent at least 15-20 minutes writing it and I appeciate an explaination as to why my 15-20 minutes were apparently spent in vain as you reverted to change and removed the section. I am understandibly irritated and am wondering what rules I have violated by adding the section or how the section itself was not up to the standards of this Wiki. I am going through it again and making sure there are no errors or mistakes either factually or grammarically and if there is no issue then I will be putting it back up as I have it saved to file and replace it. I would appreciate a reasoned response. Thank you for your time.

    • While appreciative, not all wikis follow the same layout so you need to consider that. For the witcher wiki we don't partake in an "abilities" section as this is already handled by the infobox and where it can be kept objective and simple like "magic" or "time manipulation" etc. The biggest concern though is we do not do speculation so saying something like "most powerful supernatural entity in the witcher universe" and "implying that the nature of his abilities isn't based in simple magic" goes against this rule unless the author or developers explicitly state otherwise. It's also why we're careful not to label him directly as a demon as, while it's heavily speculated, the developers have yet to confirm it (similar arguments surrounded what type of vampire Orianna was for a long time until one of the developers revealed it and is cited in the article).

    • Then you are going to need to add to the powers section

      Weather Manipulation

      Wish Granting via pact

      Cosmic Awareness

      Curse Inducement

      Reality Warping

      The reality warping part is important because some of the stuff Gaunter does is beyond simple magic as it's depicted in the Witcher universe like creating an actual physical realm in an instant to challenge Geralt. And seriously, that comment about "asking a bird how it knows to fly" and the fact that he sees spells as "petty hocus-pocus" not to mention looking down on magecraft seriously points to "I am altering reality by will alone. I can do magic but thats not the source of my abilities".

    • Except all that already falls under what's in the infobox. While he may say it's not "simple magic" in the Witcher lore magic is used to encompass all supernatural things including weather manipulation, cursing, and messing with time. We don't need to delve into intricacies when it's all summed up under one general header (same reason we don't put under "swordsmanship" things like short blades, double wielding swords, daggers, etc.).

        Loading editor
    • I understand that but in this instance it seems important to note because Gaunter is very much an Outside Context Problem for the witcher universe because he isn't even from there and I can't think of any other supernatural entity in the witcher lore that can alter reality by will alone. I'm harping on it because it would be like comparing Merlin to Q from Star Trek. Mages and magical effects have limits but if you can just straight up warp reality it means you have very few. Let's be honest, Gaunter is in his own class not just because he's powerful but also because he isn't bound by the same natural and supernatural laws as the other powerful beings from the Witcher universe. I just feel that in certain instances you need to give small details to really hammer home how some characters are really unique even within the stories setting. I won't keep going on with this but I think it's something people should remember. Sometimes it's the small details and not the big ones that really matter.

  • Hey Mechemik, I have a question about something I just realised about TB.

    The card points scale with game difficulty, so there isnt several versions of each card, it's just dependent on the difficulty. Sooooo, do we have to get rid of the points of each card?

      Loading editor
    • Do you know if there's a set formula for it? If so we could add that instead, otherwise we may have to just do base points if possible (if there's such a thing for the game).

  • When were Yennefer and Crach together? Which book?

      Loading editor
    • If you mean if it ever says when they were together as in a year/date, it never says. It only reveals they were in a relationship at some point prior to meeting again in Skellige (I can't remember which book specifically it was mentioned).

    • Hm. One more question.

      When were Triss and Geralt together in books? (first time)

        Loading editor
    • Again, another one that's never said when it happened exactly. Triss' thoughts only confirm that it was like a one time deal situation, I believe around the time she was making her way to Kaer Morhen, so likely mentioned in Blood of Elves.

    • unfortunately, the administration of the russian sector turned out to be the same idiots as the moderators. i several times emphasized that russian moderators intentionally spoil the articles. it seems that they like it according to their advice of "apoligizing to the moderator". yeah, of course, the sucker who deletes my translation and replaces it with thoughts from toilet shall receive my apologies (sarcasm). 

      anyway, thank you for your time and avices. I will surely address your wiki in future many time (english section only).
