Revision as of 12:18, November 13, 2019

Welcome

Welcome to Borderlands Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Skullmasher (Borderlands 2) page. We hope you will continue to be a regular contributor, and will help us improve the wiki!

Categorize
Please remember to categorize new images uploaded to the wiki. Uncategorized and or unpublished images will be deleted. Thank you.


Please leave a message on my talk page if you need help with anything! I'll be happy to help. WarBlade (talk) 22:00, February 3, 2019 (UTC)

Oops.

I'm making a mess of everything this morning, here and elsewhere. Thanks for cleaning my wiki spill. Dämmerung 19:08, April 7, 2019 (UTC)

Infection

Please stop reverting changes to the Infection page. The changes are based on testing and are accurate. DemiserofD (talk) 20:15, April 12, 2019 (UTC)

Ok, but why do you insist on using your descriptors? Mine is consistent with other pages. How can you guarantee that the Infection always has the halved, doubled and quadrupled effects you claim?
Ideally they'd all contain such precise numbers. After all, knowing something does 'increased damage' could mean a lot of different things. 
In this case, you can see the damage differences fairly easily by looking at the stats on the variants pages, as well as ingame, especially the elemental damage, as that is effected by less parts and so tends to be more consistent across different guns per level.

Retainer

Hi there! I have barely started a page for a new item called the Retainer, a hyperion rainbow roid shield. I got it from a sand worm, most likely meaning it was a world drop. I'll send a screenshot to you if you get back to me.

I guess my main point was that I'd love for you to help out in actually properly creating the page.

Toothpick

So guessing the note for Toothpick wasn't good enough?? I just want to know

Ninja v2 (talk) 01:48, June 11, 2019 (UTC)

I don't see how the Toothpick is similar to the Sand Hawk when it doesn't have a projectile behavior (arranged and animated like a bird or becomes invisible) that is comparable. The closest comparison it has is the Pitchfork. WKPQ (talk) 02:01, June 11, 2019 (UTC)
all I was stating in the note that it was a bust with projectiles that are in a line like the sand hawk not saying it is but I do get your point on that and I wasn't saying in the note that they "are in a bird shape" it is a burst with projectiles Ninja v2 (talk) 02:06, June 11, 2019 (UTC)Ninja v2
"The gun fires and shoots identical to the Sand hawk..."
That may have been your intention but the wording doesn't match.
I'd appreciate it if you didn't undo the indentation for the sake of preference over organization. WKPQ (talk) 02:22, June 11, 2019 (UTC)

Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary

Thanks for cleaning up all my mistakes in the Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary page, and on the New Pandoran Soldiers.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Connor20705 (talkcontribs)

Deadly Bloom

I just found a Deadly Bloom Shield in a breakable vase in Dragon Keep. Somehow. 

Laxxboy20 (talk) 02:02, June 20, 2019 (UTC)

Congrats. You could also ask CaptainKoby what odds did you beat in getting that. WKPQ (talk) 02:48, June 20, 2019 (UTC)

LOL

well ... you and that SUPER4geditTANK dude should get a room ... I mean ... seriously :) --SirFoggy (talk) 00:57, June 22, 2019 (UTC)

Edit Reverts Dispute

Hey there WKPQ. I've been seeing you are reverting a lot of SUPER4geditTANK's edits. I haven't personally vetted any of these, but it has seemed to cause some problems that I am now forced to deal with. I'd appreciate it if you could contact me so that I can get an understanding of the situation. If you have Discord, you can PM me at MadCrayolaz#6500, or you can leave a message on my Talk Page. Cheers.

MadCrayolaz ® 01:18, June 22, 2019 (UTC)


Thanks ...

for reviewing and editing my entries. English not even being my 3rd language, I tend to be a quick & messy writer. Thanks again. --SirFoggy (talk) 20:47, July 3, 2019 (UTC)

Choices

So you are planning to edit ALL the articles to have in-universe-style writing, right? Well, good luck! Would be a nice improvement! Aldo012345

Jakethemixels2005 Edits

Let Warblade himself correct all edits (at once) and punish the wiki member. -- Sega010 (talk) 23:52, July 24, 2019 (UTC)

I only reverted the edits because TWRAddictYT missed two. WKPQ (talk) 23:58, July 24, 2019 (UTC)
The Wiki administrator has a powerful tool to roll back all edits in one click. In this case, our help is not required if vandal works. -- Best regards, Sega010 (talk) 00:43, July 25, 2019 (UTC)

Infection Cleaner

"Not necessary"? Or "not allowed"? There a rule against pointing out such details? Now I remember why I stopped making edits on this wiki altogether a couple years back. This WarBlade guy must be hella fun to work with. Whatever. Ablake (talk) 15:02, July 27, 2019 (UTC)

Discord

I wish to discuss something with you privately, could you either tell me your Discord name or send me a message at Tephra#2372? And don't worry, it is nothing bad.

Hai thar

Not sure how you're literally always on my trail, or if (and this is probably the case) you literally spend all your time on this wiki. Either way, I actually do appreciate your edits, they help me figure out how I should word things. Sometimes you miss my intention, but it's all good, you've been here longer than me. Psychopathic Goat (talk) 02:54, September 30, 2019 (UTC)

Thanks!
Yes, I do spend quite some time checking the edits and I appreciate your help as well. WKPQ (talk) 03:33, September 30, 2019 (UTC)

Captions

Just wondering: I placed some captions on BL3 Legendary images, and you seem to have reverted them all to the ingame flavor text. Seems a touch rude; providing custom flavor text has been the traditional way since at least BL2, where if you check almost any legendary it has a user-submitted caption. Am I missing something? -- Glyphicality (talk) 08:37, September 30, 2019 (UTC)

A user-submitted caption are not entirely correct. These new captions are not needed if there is an fine original from the developers. Only a few new captions can overshadow the imagination of game developers. Moreover, in-game content takes precedence over personal opinions and desires. -- Sega010 (talk) 20:02, September 30, 2019 (UTC)
Also, to be blunt, the vast majority of the user-invented captions for BL2 were nonsensical / unfunny with no real relation to the item.  They also confused me until I read a random talk page that happened to mention them (in the context of complaining about their existence).  I kept thinking that there was some hidden set of weird quotes in the game with massively substandard writing quality that I was missing.   As you mention they might not have bothered me if the legendaries didn't already have quotes built in.  Double Penetrating Boloney Poney (talk) 08:00, November 9, 2019 (UTC)

BL3 Mayhem Mode modifier names

Hi!  I noticed that on the Roisen's Thorns page you wrote in the notes:

" The projectiles from a Roisen's Thorns do not ricochet to the character when the Mayhem Mode Defendarius modifier is in effect. "

When I'm in mayhem mode, I don't see any modifier titles, just a list of effects.  Where are these supposed to appear in the game?  What this one is is easy enough to infer from the context but it might be difficult when one is used somewhere on here that isn't quite so obvious.   Thanks. :D  Double Penetrating Boloney Poney (talk) 08:06, November 9, 2019 (UTC)

I don't know if / where the modifier titles show up. I don't have BL3 and was using this video & timestamp as a reference on which modifier DiaboloDRemor was referring to. WKPQ (talk) 08:20, November 9, 2019 (UTC)
Yep, they're listed in that info kiosk next to the mode switcher, didn't think to look there.  In the map screen where the current modifiers for the area are shown the titles aren't listed, which is why I was confused.  I'm not sure why they left them out on the map screen, it just shows the stat changes...   :P  Double Penetrating Boloney Poney (talk) 02:01, November 10, 2019 (UTC)

Shotgun edits

becuase it has the same maga size as the bulldog that is why i compare to the bulldog —Preceding unsigned comment added by FL4KPlayZ (talkcontribs)

It's useless trivia. How does comparing the Bulldog matter to how The Garcia is used? As for The Tidal Wave & T.K's Wave, close range what? Close range examination? You're removing an important word for proper grammar for no reason. Why should "close-range combat" be reserved for melee attacks? WKPQ (talk) 19:51, November 12, 2019 (UTC)
