::E-A-A-R-R seems wrong. The elements in the listed icons are E-A-A-QR-QR (which is Ice instead of Cold elements), which cannot be casted in that order because Ice or Steam must always be casted before Lightning elements, otherwise Lightning will be cancel out by the Water. For this wiki, it is common to almost always put Steam or Frost at the start of any spell first to avoid this mistake, so {{Elem|qr}}{{Elem|qr}}{{Elem|e}}{{Elem|a}}{{Elem|a}} and {{Elem|qf}}{{Elem|qf}}{{Elem|s}}{{Elem|a}}{{Elem|a}}.

Wiki Etiquette

Hi all... not sure what the etiquette is for wiki's in general. First time trying to contribute, so if I'm doing it wrong please let me know =)

Firstly, has this page already been created? I haven't been able to find it so far. As the page states, my goal is to create a page that lists spells which are powerful when used in conjunction, beyond just general instruction. Instead of "get them wet, then freeze them", list out the specific building of the two spells, how and when to use it, its strengths, and its weaknesses.

I've also been thinking that good video documentation should be present to support the given combination, as well as demonstrate it to folks who might have a harder time visualizing it from the text. Is fraps + youtube the best bet for this? What are the rules on posting youtube videos? How do we give credit?

Secondly, I've actually got a couple questions about formatting too. What priority do the elements come in? Does Lightning ALWAYS appear before arcane? Or for shields/storms/barriers/walls/mines should we always place the Shield (E) first? Frequently the PC KeyCode is different from what i input in the game, but it yields the same result. The keycode may say e-a-a-r-r, but I type a-a-e-r-r because its faster for me. Does that matter when choosing the order to represent the elements?

Thanks! --Kjhansen233 10:57, 14 February 2011 (PST)

It does not differ in the game but to make the wikipeida in one style here and there, you know it is better to have all keys the same in any page. Also for the shield, it is more sensible to use it at first, then put the other elements after, in the game it does not differ, but here we want to make it easier to read. That is all :)

EDIT1: If you are aiming for a beam, then Arcane or Life first, then the element you want.. EDIT2: Check the priority of Ordering here, 1. Shield 2. Solid 3.Channel 4. Other.. --McLord 11:36, 14 February 2011 (PST)

Thanks thanks! I'll keep that in mind from now on = ) --Sanyu 11:45, 14 February 2011 (PST)
E-A-A-R-R seems wrong. The elements in the listed icons are E-A-A-QR-QR (which is Ice instead of Cold elements), which cannot be casted in that order because Ice or Steam must always be casted before Lightning elements, otherwise Lightning will be cancel out by the Water. For this wiki, it is common to almost always put Steam or Frost at the start of any spell first to avoid this mistake, so IceIceShield (E)Lightning (A)Lightning (A) and SteamSteamArcane (S)Lightning (A)Lightning (A).
