incendantally just what is chaos damage and its relative calculators?

Chaos damage adds no bonus, but instead causes the damage you "do" with that weapon to be of a random element instead. (with all the drawbacks and benefits that come with it)  - BBR  talk / cont 08:08, 8 March 2007 (EST)

Choice of Images

First of all, thank you to this article's contributors for a fine article.

I've been looking at the article and wondering why the image of the item's stats are really needed. If we already have text with wikilinks, what is the purpose of this image? Perhaps cropping the image to show just the backpack icon would better suit the article, and reduce load on the server. How about also having a screenshot of a character or NPC (read, vendor) holding a boomstick?

Erm... I'd say well over 50% of weapon/armor images use this format at present.

The idea of cropping all the images, converting them to PNG format and putting all the item stats in as page text does appeal to me though. Still, it's a lot of work.

Rome wasn't built in a day... but we still talk about it, don't we? I think we're well on the way. Thadius856 00:05, 11 September 2008 (PDT)

Again. A minor aesthetic debate that could be argued either way, but would require untold hours to change. There are still so many subjects that haven't yet been touched. Stake your claim. Go out and conquer new lands. There you can make it your own and smile, enjoying what you yourself have created. Meridus 10:45, 11 September 2008 (PDT)

It is quite funny to me about all the recent nitpicking about how things should be on UOGuide. I actually don't like how talk page conversations are spaced by horizontal bars instead of indents. But anyway, back on the subject of item images. Common items, artifacts and the like should probably just have a picture to show the color and item graphic. The rest of the details should be in text form (using one of those nifty templates with the colors a few people made). Unique items such as ones from events should display the text box so people can tell exactly what they look like. Having all these stats displayed in picture form drains server bandwidth and increases page loading times. - JC the Builder 10:59, 11 September 2008 (PDT)
