    Do you think we could perhaps set up a page for something like Environmental Objects?

    So things like Levers, Bonfire, Key Mouths, Elevators, Braziers, etc, can just be fit under there.

    We can down the road if the need presents itself which we've found is the best way to avoid a ton of lightly used places. Let's wait and see how the game changes. As it is right now, if the game doesn't change beyond key mouths, stuff like levers don't need to be addressed but new content like the Key Mouths and Torches may warrant a heading. Maybe something a little less specific than Environmental Objects and something broader like World Concepts or Gameplay Concepts. Or it just may be that Torches and Key Mouths merit their own sections like Humanity and Covenants.

    Well, I could put Braziers underneath torches and perhaps also discuss the mechanic of lighting in game and how it will effect gameplay.

    I could also rename that page as Lighting and put torches, braziers, and lighting underneath it as a whole.

    Well let's keep things consistent with what people are used to with the present wiki. Concepts are touched on in the About page where they are linked to their fleshed out pages. For now Key Mouths and Torches are fine in their own pages and we can discuss the concepts they introduce to the series in the About section. By Braziers you mean where we light the torches correct?

    Correct, there may also be other ways to light torches presented later too.

    Maybe we should just wait for the bridge to appear before crossing it?

    Yep haha. Hence my wait and see statement before silly. No worries though, keep the ideas coming. The enthusiasm is infectious, it's our job to just corral and focus it where needed and in an organized fashion.

    You know, I just noticed on the Dark Souls wiki we don't have a page for general combat mechanics like criticals, parries, ripostes. Why is this?

    Should I add things like that to the combat page for Dark Souls 2?

    I'm still planning to make one, just need the spare time to do so.
    There's this barren page: http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/weapons%20explained but I also want to make a 'bonus damage' page or something.

    Tolvo wrote:Should I add things like that to the combat page for Dark Souls 2?
    Yes, please do. Then we can just move it to another page later if we need to.

    Just a reminder folks: Don't be daunted or afraid to edit the Wiki! It's a valuable resource and is a ton of fun to work on. It can't be destroyed, all mistakes can be easily reverted and the organizer team is more than willing to help and clarify. Exciting times like the present are the best times to make edits because a lot of new info is coming out! It you read something new, check it on the wiki. If the info is missing, go ahead and add it. Post here if you are confused in any way on where something belongs. And creating a wiki account is super easy.

    We want you!

    Then make something of yourself and do some editing!

    I feel like making an image of Gwyn as Uncle Sam saying the Wiki wants you.

    Then I remember I have the artistic skill of a toddler.

    If you go look, Tolvo, Baal and Ublug have done a fantastic job of summarizing the new info from trailer. Speculation is not lame, it gets people thinking and imagining and excited for more!

    Indeed, plus you never know the speculation might end up correct and just be put into the actual page for the information upon release.

    I think you'll also find that I did brew that coffee.

    I've been reading every article that comes out and taking notes on game concepts. Then I go to the wiki and add the info to the About page and other relevant pages. I will go back and crosslink everythin then. That's really an activity anyone who is reading articles can do. As new concepts are introduced and clarified we just plug them where they go. For example: Some enemies will be able to backdrop. That's a piece of info that I will put on the About page in brief and also on the enemy page in more fleshed out detail.

    If you come across a reputable article check it against this page's concepts section:

    http://darksouls2wiki.wikispaces.com/About+Dark+Souls+2

    If you read anything that's missing here add the concepts to the bullet and also to a relevant page in the wiki. And if you see something in the concepts that can be linked to another page that can be done as well. Backlinks really tie the whole wiki together. So for example, Torches hae their own page. Wherever you see torches mentioned that's an opportunity to link it to the Torch page.

    Baal, hanging around and running the forums is fun but don't you feel like some reactivated Golem that had been long dormant? It feels so good to sink my teeth into a new wiki.

    I agree. I have not made updates to the DkS 1 wiki in a long time. This is fun! I am getting excited about the new game as well. cheers
