Checking In Edit

Hey Viktoria! I just wanted to check in and say hello! You're doing well I hope? Keeping things here on the wiki in order etc etc? -HD3 Sig 06:34, April 8, 2014 (UTC)

Hey! Yeah I am doing great, though by tomorrow I'll leave the country again. I do not patrol the wiki anymore, but I indeed checked some edits which interested me. How are you, by the way? Smiley Viktoria Landers 07:57, April 8, 2014 (UTC)
Well enough. Like you said, occasionally keeping an eye on wiki edits that interest me. Mostly just holding out until DA: Inquisition is finally released. —Preceding unsigned comment added by HD3 (talkcontribs) 11:57, April 8, 2014‎
Decided not to leave and spend the Easter with my family. You can find me on skype if you want to chat more :) Viktoria Landers 06:48, April 11, 2014 (UTC)
Oh hey what were those two areas of DA2 you wanted images of? I've only got saves for Act 1 and Act 3 so I can only get to some areas. Unless I can find a save on the internet for act 2.-HD3 Sig
One is in Act 2 and the other in Act 3. Deep Roads-Fool's Gold and the Deep Roads location of Finding Nathaniel quest (the page for this location does not exist). Viktoria Landers 13:51, April 11, 2014 (UTC)

Hello again Edit

Hi Vikky, I'll be on IRC a bit tonight if you are available. If not, how about either Saturday or Sunday evening EST, if that works for you? Best, Jen LadyAeducan (talk) 00:31, April 12, 2014 (UTC)

Hey Jen. Sorry but I was asleep by the time you sent me this message. The weekend is more suitable for me indeed, but providing me with an exact time would be awesome :) Best, Viktoria Landers 05:05, April 12, 2014 (UTC)
Hi Vikky, how about tomorrow (Sunday) at around 8:00 pm EST, if that's okay? That's the early morning for you, I know... I should have set a time in my message above, I'm sorry about that. And thanks about the Education page, I'm going to be adding links. LadyAeducan (talk) 21:42, April 12, 2014 (UTC)
Hi Vikky, it looks as though you're not on IRC (or I've just missed you). Let's try for another time soon. I'm sorry this weekend didn't work out. Thanks for adding Education links around the wiki, by the way. Have a nice day! Best, Jen LadyAeducan (talk) 01:10, April 14, 2014 (UTC)
Jen, I was for about half an hour... then some messages about the session having expired showed up which I guess it also happened in your end too. :-( Anyway, just hit me up whenever you are available again, we're having a holiday so I have some extra time! Viktoria Landers 06:31, April 14, 2014 (UTC)
Hi Vikky, IRC was acting a little strange for me too. What about Friday night, maybe 9:00 or 9:30 EST? Or a time over the weekend if that's better for you? Best, Jen LadyAeducan (talk) 00:22, April 15, 2014 (UTC)
Hmm. What about 11:00 EST? I know it's a little late for you, but I will be able to wake up then after a night's sleep :-P (it would be 6am here) Viktoria Landers 07:12, April 15, 2014 (UTC)
11:00 EST Friday is perfect, not too late at all! I'll see you then. :) LadyAeducan (talk) 01:01, April 16, 2014 (UTC)
Hi Vik, I was on IRC for a while but I will have to drop out now (I will be having an unexpectedly early morning and need to get some sleep). I will catch you on IRC sometime, though, I promise! I'm sorry about the difficulty in getting together on this, but it will happen! I hope you have a lovely Easter. Best, Jen LadyAeducan (talk) 03:52, April 19, 2014 (UTC)
Well, I was online all this time... see the timestamp of my signature. :-( What's wrong with IRC?! Viktoria Landers 03:55, April 19, 2014 (UTC)
Ah, darn it. I'm so sorry. I'm not sure what's going on. I'm getting in to #dawiki okay but I am not seeing other people on the chat at all, it just looks like I am the only one logged in (so I thought I'd somehow missed you last night). Why don't we email until we can find out what's happening? I'm sorry you were up early for nothing this morning. :( Best, Jen LadyAeducan (talk) 21:55, April 19, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I'll email you! No worries Jen I had a good sleep! Viktoria Landers 22:35, April 19, 2014 (UTC)

Masked Empire Edit

I don't have the book either. I just tidy up the grammar and add character involvement stuff from the plot section. You should ask User:Леди боли.(Sports72Xtrm (talk) 12:45, April 12, 2014 (UTC))

The Masked Empire Edit

Sure. It is in 1 chapter. You can reed it at macmillan site for free. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Леди боли (talkcontribs) 14:05, April 12, 2014‎

Dem dwarves Edit

Hey, hi. So, I wanted to sit my arse down and do that heraldry thing, but alas I am saddened. The photobucket image of the HoDA is no longer up. I wonder if you perhaps have it saved on your computer, or an alternative source to it, please. :) Henio0 (talk) 13:07, April 13, 2014 (UTC)

I'll provide a lengthy description in your talk page. I think it would be more practical for you if I post it there. Smiley Viktoria Landers 15:00, April 13, 2014 (UTC)
I think I grasp the general idea of what needs doing with it (basically a macro image a vector illustration of the dwarven symbol), but I can't make one because the image is no longer available. :P Henio0 (talk) 15:07, April 13, 2014 (UTC)
Well, you could use this image as your starting point. I know it's low quality, but I think it doesn't matter since you'll create something new, fresh. Viktoria Landers 15:12, April 13, 2014 (UTC)
I thought we were gonna use the HoDa one. Henio0 (talk) 15:18, April 13, 2014 (UTC)
The HoDA one uses a crown on the head of the dwarven symbol. I think that's more a symbol of the dwarven empire/dwarven kingdoms than something universal (for both the underground and surface dwarves). Afterall the respective HoDA quest line which used this symbol had to do with the fall of the ancient dwarven empire. Viktoria Landers 15:30, April 13, 2014 (UTC)
Okay. I was just basing it on the message you left at Believe It!'s talk page. :) I will do one based on the talent pic, but it will not be 100% precise, as it will have to be one colour, and in the image for example the eyes are not a single shape but they have this burning effect. I shall inform you of my process. Henio0 (talk) 15:34, April 13, 2014 (UTC)
That's completely logical. Many thanks! (make it big enough to use it on the template too!) Viktoria Landers 16:01, April 13, 2014 (UTC)

Prototype 1 Edit

Hi. So I made this first version here. I am not sure if I captured the eyes area quite right, though. I am thinking about how I could improve the image, now. Meanwhile, as the image is pretty rough, I simplyfied it a bit (it can be done way better, this is just to show you the difference) so that the edges aren't so rough - thar she blows. Lemme know if I am going in the right direction with this. Henio0 (talk) 16:40, April 13, 2014 (UTC)

I really like the prototype! The rough design is something prominent in dwarven style, so I think we should not change that. I only have two points for improvement (on the first image).
  • We need to slightly increase the width of the cheeks (but not to cut that extra space from somewhere else)
  • And make the external part of the ears thinner.
(just to mention) I guess you use a black background in order to show how it looks like and the end result will be transparent and square. Viktoria Landers 16:56, April 13, 2014 (UTC)

Is this what you meant, or should I actually move the shapes about rather than trim them? Also, I've added a line around the eyes, but I don't know if it works. Henio0 (talk) 20:19, April 13, 2014 (UTC)

This is what I meant, good job :) I also like your decision to tweak the eyes shape a bit. Perhaps we should slightly make the beard shorter? Other than that, I cannot think of anything else. Which means we're good to go! Viktoria Landers 22:39, April 13, 2014 (UTC)

Finalising Edit

Hi. I don't think making the beard shorter will work because it will upset the face to beard ratio, but I can nevertheless attempt it. What I could also suggest trying is moving the shapes closer together, whilst preserving their size. Henio0 (talk) 21:56, April 14, 2014 (UTC)

Regarding the beard, I simply noticed that the dwarven resistance icon's beard to face ratio was smaller than in your image. As for moving the shapes closer, it sounds like an interesting idea, perhaps you should try it out :) Viktoria Landers 22:06, April 14, 2014 (UTC)
The beard is actually the exact size it's in the icon. :P The only difference now is the smaller ears and cheekbones, plus those two lines I added to the eyes :P comparison here ;) Henio0 (talk) 22:34, April 14, 2014 (UTC)
Ahh it must have been the extra vertical lines of the beard that made think such thing. Anyway, the icon looks great, can't wait to use it! :P Viktoria Landers 22:38, April 14, 2014 (UTC)

Right, so I won't be able to do that after all, as any kind of big change like that affects the original bulkiness of the face and it doesn't look like the characteristic dwarf. Unless there is anything else you see that could be improved, this is the final one here. Sadly, I don't know if it'll work as an icon, however. Perhaps we would be better off using the image suggested by Dalishfan, namely the Delver of the Deep achievement. However, since in the image there was a king, I took the liberty to edit the image quickly to show you how it could be used. what do you think? Henio0 (talk) 23:25, April 14, 2014 (UTC)

Dunno, this seems like the best version we could get. The Delver of the Deep achievement has many lines running from the top to bottom of the icon, which is a Kirkwall characteristic. Anyway, I uploaded the image in the two appropriate places. You can check it out and tell me how you find it. Viktoria Landers 07:08, April 15, 2014 (UTC)
I guess it does look okay as an icon. ;) Okay, then. Let me know if there are any other things like that to be done in the future. :) Henio0 (talk) 09:28, April 15, 2014 (UTC)

Help with an Edit Edit

Hey Viktoria, I'm trying to add the Basic Longbow to the Archery weapons but I don't know how to add that you can purchase a version of the longbow from the Hunting Stores in Chateau Haine to the acquisition section. I'm not good with tables. Could you fix it please? -HD3 Sig 10:58, April 14, 2014 (UTC)

Done. The notes field in the ItemTransformer shows up in the Archery weapons page (but not on the Basic Longbow page itself). Viktoria Landers 11:20, April 14, 2014 (UTC)

Hey thanks very much.- HD3 Sig 11:21, April 14, 2014 (UTC)

Article Question Edit

I wanted to run an idea by you. What do you think about deleting the articles on the transportation obejcts in the Fade Massive Door, Fire Barrier, Fade Portal and merging them into the fade quest guide. Since they all relate only to the that one quest and there's very little information on any of them. We could cover all three on the quest page with a single short paragraph and more people would probably read it too.-HD3 Sig 13:42, April 14, 2014 (UTC)

Sure, the pages individually do not seem particularly important. Viktoria Landers 14:52, April 14, 2014 (UTC)

Alienage Link Edit

Hey I was thinking, the name of the Elven Alienage in Denerim, the article title is just Elven Alienage. Someone could be looking for Alienages in general. Unlike the Kirkwall Alienage which has the locale in the name. What do you think about putting a "For" link at the top to the alienage culture article? In case someone has just searched Alienage looking for Alienages in the broader sense.-HD3 Sig 10:53, April 15, 2014 (UTC)

That's a good idea, though I think Template:About is more suitable. Viktoria Landers 10:58, April 15, 2014 (UTC)
Could I ask you to take care of that please, I can't seem to get this damn template to work. Just a link to the Alienage page-HD3 Sig 11:12, April 15, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for that.

Profane abomination Edit

Hey Viktoria! Profane abomination's deletion status has yet to be decided (the discussion is sort of split), so I'm wondering if you were in favor of deleting or keeping the article (you didn't vote, but you commented). There had been some changes since your last comment. ··· D-day sig d·day! 15:10, April 15, 2014 (UTC)

Junar Edit

Hey Viktoria, I updated the DA2 image for this article to a better one but for some reason the article keeps displaying an overcropped version of the previous image. Do you have any idea how to fix this?-HD3 Sig 05:11, April 16, 2014 (UTC)

Hmm, I made an edit and it now works for me (an action which force-reloaded the page from the beginning). Generally, you should give it some time and it will update on its own. If it takes too long, clear your browser's cache. Viktoria Landers 06:14, April 16, 2014 (UTC)

Images Edit

Hey thanks for writing the little summary thing on those images I uploaded. I didn't know they required a summary as well as the licensing and categories. -HD3 Sig 12:12, April 16, 2014 (UTC)

Actually it isn't required, but you're welcome :) I simply prefer to provide a description in every file for convenience's sake. Viktoria Landers 12:15, April 16, 2014 (UTC)
Also I am not at all trying to gloat, but I think those images for the locations came out looking damn nice. Even if I do say so myself.-HD3 Sig 12:22, April 16, 2014 (UTC)

Not Sure If Right Place Edit

Not sure if this is the right place to discuss this but I wanted to apologize for going off topic on a recent blog, http://dragonage.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:King_Cousland/Cullen_and_Cassandra_confirmed_as_romanceable,_and_more!

Its mainly the conversation between myself and Drell. Wanted to apologize for going off topic as its not the right place to dos o. Wanted to bring that up before I get frustrated further Supergodzilla118 (talk) Supergodzilla118 19:19, April 16, 2014 (UTC)

Well... I'm not sure why you apologize to me. The things you discuss with Drell is your own business unless of course they breach the rules, when then it becomes the admins' business as well. Viktoria Landers 23:06, April 16, 2014 (UTC)
 : Just wanted to make sure since it did go a bit off topic, which I unknowingly (at the time) contribute to. Thanks for the reply. Supergodzilla118 (talk) Supergodzilla118 23:08, April 16, 2014 (UTC)

Darktown Places List Edit

Hey Viktoria, I've fixed up the Darktown article list of places, but for some reason I can't get the link to The Forgotten Lair to work and I can't figure out what's wrong with it. Could you take a look please?-HD3 Sig 03:15, April 17, 2014 (UTC)

Now I'm having the same problem with the Wounded Coast Places list.-HD3 Sig 03:36, April 17, 2014 (UTC)

It should be working now. Since you're working on DA2 location pages, could you please add Category:Dungeons wherever it's suitable? I've noticed that very few DA2 locations are listed as dungeons... Viktoria Landers 07:33, April 17, 2014 (UTC)

Does Dungeons in this context mean an actual literal dungeon or do you mean a combat encounter setting like Slaver Caverns?-HD3 Sig 09:15, April 17, 2014 (UTC)

A location which is an actual, literal dungeon. Viktoria Landers 09:48, April 17, 2014 (UTC)
I think we're having a miscommunication here. Because you tagged Dank Cave as a Dungeon but that's clearly not literally a dungeon. -HD3 Sig 10:21, April 17, 2014 (UTC)
I thought caves were dungeons according to game terminology (a precedent set by D&D). Viktoria Landers 16:08, April 17, 2014 (UTC)


I think in that sense dungeons are any areas filled with enemies that isn't a quest hub or a non combat plot scene setting. Something that's literally a dungeon would be.... well The Dungeons for instance. Because it's literally a dungeon that holds prisoners in cells.-HD3 Sig 01:37, April 18, 2014 (UTC)
Do you think we should ask other users about their opinion too? Viktoria Landers 12:06, April 18, 2014 (UTC)
Sure, by all means open it up to a wider forum.-HD3 Sig 03:10, April 19, 2014 (UTC)
Alright, though at that time I won't be available to apply the changes based on the community's decision (will leave again - studies). Viktoria Landers 03:58, April 19, 2014 (UTC)
Here is the topic: Forum:Dungeon. Viktoria Landers 22:35, April 19, 2014 (UTC)

Initial statistics for companion articles Edit

By the way, it seems Mostlyautumn won't do the temporary companion thingy, which I find it pretty important. Perhaps you should hand this task to someone else? (who is active ofc) Viktoria Landers 22:35, April 19, 2014 (UTC)

I agree but I would prefer someone with more experience handle the task, I lack the skills myself I fear. Could you suggest anyone who would be able to take care of it?-HD3 Sig 02:32, April 20, 2014 (UTC)
I have enforced this change here. You or anyone else can copy the coding of that page and apply it to any other companion page. The only difference is that in the other pages you'll remove for example "Dirty Fighting" and add "Winter's Grasp" and replace the respective icon. Kelcat is one of the people I can think that they are able to do that.
However, in pages which already have a TOC (table of content), then you should not use the __NOTOC__ extension as this would remove the TOC they already had. Imagine Morrigan's page which is massive, not having that table which allows easy browsing. Viktoria Landers 08:44, April 20, 2014 (UTC)
I've actually started implementing this but it will take some time. Right now I'm waiting for my bot to fetch all the pages since wikia database dump is broken. – mostlyautumntalkcontribs • 08:53, April 20, 2014 (UTC)
I've updated Leske with the simplified markup. Currently I'm checking whether my changes to the templates broke anything. After that I'll have a look at the rest of the companion pages. – mostlyautumntalkcontribs • 10:17, April 20, 2014 (UTC)
Mostly, I did a few tweaks while you're going with the companions. These are:
  • Added the racial ability before any other talent.
  • Talent trees now have a direct link: eg. Warrior
  • Instead of listing each armor piece, I replaced them with the armor set link instead.
What do you think? Viktoria Landers 12:05, April 20, 2014 (UTC)
Sounds good, I will follow the same style. – mostlyautumntalkcontribs • 12:14, April 20, 2014 (UTC)


Hey Viktoria, just a heads up, the Daveth page is displaying the whole article infobox for his armor instead of just the concise icon like it should e.g Jory

-HD3 Sig 12:42, April 20, 2014 (UTC)

Oops, forgot to add the iconmini code, thanks for letting me know! Viktoria Landers 12:44, April 20, 2014 (UTC)

Do we need to list the class in the initial statistics? Seems redundant. – mostlyautumntalkcontribs • 12:58, April 20, 2014 (UTC)

It is. Including the specialization section. Let's remove both. Viktoria Landers 13:04, April 20, 2014 (UTC)
I personally would contend that since we're already at it we might as well leave it in. But I'm not terribly fussed so whatever you guys want.-HD3 Sig 13:05, April 20, 2014 (UTC)

Golems of Amgarrak Edit

Hey Viktoria do you have the Golems of Amgarrak and or Witch Hunt installed or know someone who could help us who does? We're missing some information from the temporary companion articles-HD3 Sig 06:52, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

I'm currently unavailable but when I'll be back please let me know if you still need help on this. Viktoria Landers 16:53, May 1, 2014 (UTC)
Don't worry, I already took care of this myself.-HD3 Sig 03:09, May 2, 2014 (UTC)

Quote Guidelines Edit

Hey I left a message regarding the proposed quote guidelines. -HD3 Sig 08:45, April 24, 2014 (UTC)

Replied. Viktoria Landers 16:53, May 1, 2014 (UTC)

Companions (Origins) Edit

Also for some reason the top 3 icons on the Companions page aren't displaying properly, they're all kind of askew. -HD3 Sig 08:47, April 24, 2014 (UTC)

I don't see any issues here. Viktoria Landers 16:53, May 1, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah it seems to have been fixed already. Sorry to bother you.-HD3 Sig 03:10, May 2, 2014 (UTC)

Everd Edit

Hey I noticed the Everd article was renamed Everd Bera. Where does the Bera come from? Do we have a source for this? Because I don't remember the surname ever being mentioned in the commoner origin.-HD3 Sig 03:05, May 6, 2014 (UTC)

Hey Paul! It is mentioned in the description of some of his equipment. Viktoria Landers 15:43, May 9, 2014 (UTC)

Hi) Edit

I've just returned from vacation. I traveled to Hungary/Austria/Slovakia, so I've been away for quite a while. Yep, I still play WoW, moreover I joined the top Russian guild (World 3 in 25 ppl bracket in the last tier). I was also busy making some in-game videos, such as this one (it's in Russian, though I might be making Eng versions in the future).
As for DA, I'm currently reading the last book and I will be both adding some info from it to the wiki and taking part in a fan translation of the book into Russian (since no official one will be released).
I'll try to join the chat as soon as I have spare time, but I can't make any promises :( Asherinka (talk) 14:51, May 6, 2014 (UTC)

It's great hearing that you've been doing well! Hopefully Dragon Age will catch your main attention again after DA:I is released Smiley Viktoria Landers 15:43, May 9, 2014 (UTC)

De Chalons Heraldry Edit

Hey Viktoria. I know it's confirmed by the Dragon Age channel, but I think we should try to get confirmation from the writer's or art team if possible.-HD3 Sig 09:33, May 25, 2014 (UTC)

Hey there! I thought in the link Sharth provided, David Gaider himself confirms that. Where exactly are your concerns? Viktoria Landers 09:35, May 25, 2014 (UTC)
Perhaps I overlooked it, but I can only see that it was confirmed as Gaspard's heraldry by the Dragon Age publicity twitter account. Which I am inclined to accept but would prefer if we could get someone from the art or writing team to double check.-HD3 Sig 09:48, May 25, 2014 (UTC)
Well, I guess it won't hurt. However how do you plan on doing that? Viktoria Landers 06:34, May 26, 2014 (UTC)
Therein lies the issue, I've no idea how one would accomplish this. -HD3 Sig 06:45, May 26, 2014 (UTC)
Contacting a dev in twitter or posting the question in BioWare forums seem the most viable options to me. Viktoria Landers 07:49, May 26, 2014 (UTC)
Agreed. I don't have a twitter account or a Bioware Forum account though.-HD3 Sig 08:56, May 26, 2014 (UTC)

Unnamed topic #1 Edit

Listen to me I am not the first drell spectre. Even if I come from the same country like him it doesn't mean I am him. I don't know what he or she did, but I don't want to be punished for someone else.78.8.7.101 (talk) 16:59, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

Well, unfortunately you are. Viktoria Landers 13:18, June 1, 2014 (UTC)

Blog tweaks and thread Edit

Hi Vikki, just to let you know I've taken care of those blog tweaks and also just to bring this to your attention, if you hadn't already seen it. It seemed like something you may be interested in. Chantry symbol King Cousland | Talk   20:17, June 12, 2014 (UTC)

Late to the party Edit

Honestly your message was the first time I had heard they were giving out Endrin. I log on to also find out Barkspawn was added as well. I had made that suggestion a long while back to the devs, and tho I doubt it was me personally who "persuaded" them to add him in, Im happy to see him all the same. I havn't got any of the newer Heroes yet But I'm attempting to. Will let you know if I grab one! Warden Mage: Ferris (talk) 02:54, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! By the way all the heroes in your party in HoDA got an extra rank a few days ago and some new runes were released too! Viktoria Landers 18:29, June 20, 2014 (UTC)

Image request!Edit

Well, good news and bad news. The good news is I have a really great image of Branka, listed as "Paragon Branka" in game. It's super hard to get good images of people with shields, as the shield tends to cover the body, but apparently I had the foresight to screencap when I first got her. [1] additional somewhat good news I am trying to gather more info together for the HoDA wiki section. They just keep updating and changing the rules so quickly...>.>; I checked out for like a month and suddenly some of my Heroes Tiered up on their own due to new rules. The bad news.. well I don't have the rest you're asking for. Best I could suggest would be asking people on the official forums. I tried once without much luck, but perhaps you'll fair better then me. I'll keep looking around myself to see if i can find any. Warden Mage: Ferris (talk) 02:51, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
