The DLC Changes Codex numbering - new entries are inserted rather than added to the end. For instance, see Codex: History. "A Chant for the Departed" is the first entry without the DLC, but it becomes second as the new one, "A Celebration of Wardens" is added before it. "Dirthamen: Keeper of Secrets" is listed as #11, but it is currently #13 in my game. Any ideas how we are going to resolve the issue? Asherinka (talk) 01:30, April 11, 2015 (UTC)

It'll be similar to the Origins and DA2 codex system, where you list the "vanilla" codex number (with no DLCs installed) and then follow it up with (+#DLC Name). For example, the Dirthamen codex would become 11 (+2JOK). --FenrirSmallKeladin Storm (Talk) 02:33, April 11, 2015 (UTC)

Exactly as Keladin says, though I would recommend either "JOH" or "JH" to use as the initials. Do we know if it's always +2? It'll be much easier to update all the codex entries if it is, rather than having to check them one-by-one. --Kelcat Talk 02:43, April 11, 2015 (UTC)

The codex numbering has changed even if you don't have the DLC. As of a recent patch there are spots in the codex where the DLC entries go regardless of whether you have the DLC or not. ----S

No it's not. New entries are inserted in the alphabetical order, so it will be 1,2,3,4,5,6 and then 1,2 new,3(ex2),4(ex3),5 new,6(ex4),7(ex5),8 new,9(ex 6) etc. Asherinka (talk) 02:48, April 11, 2015 (UTC)

UPD One more question. There are a lot of DAI texts that are not included in the Codex. I recently added all landmark descriptions (like this). However some are not even landmarks (like this). What should we do with such items? Asherinka (talk) 07:49, April 11, 2015 (UTC)

Well, if it's not an actual codex entry, then the article shouldn't be titled as such. I am personally of the opinion that most of the numerous notes found in the game aren't really significant enough to warrant their own pages (we have screenshots of some of them on quest articles, though), but for significant ones like the one you linked, I would support having articles for them on a case-by-case basis and titling them something like "Note: The Claws of Dumat". --Kelcat Talk 08:10, April 11, 2015 (UTC)

I certainly agree with dealing with it as we did for earlier games. I'm in the process of completing the DLC, so I'm happy to help with the numbers if needed. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 00:26, April 12, 2015 (UTC)

I created a new category for texts missing from the Codex and added landmark pages with extra texts and notes from Here Lies the Abyss to it. Is everybody fine with it? Asherinka (talk) 04:10, April 12, 2015 (UTC)
