General ongoing Wiki projects[]

  • Special:WantedPages - articles that need to be created.
    • Most of the top 50 are units. But if you scroll down past that, there's some others like autoresolve.
  • Category:Stubs needs going through.
    • {{stub}} is for tiny articles with not much info. For bigger articles, you can replace the stub tag with {{expand}}
    • There is a lot of articles clogging up the stub category which shouldn't be there. For example: Beard-Thing Sacrifice has an unnecessary stub tag.
      • This is a problem because it stops us finding the articles which really need attention.

Project: images[]

The wiki needs more images! More screenshots of units, provinces and game mechanics, especially. Don't be afraid to upload some today! Revoran (talk) 02:58, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

Main page overhaul[]

What do people think about somehow putting Legendary Lords on the main page? It seems like people pay a lot more attention to LLs than factions. And in most cases factions only have one LL anyway.

Thoughts? Revoran (talk) 11:06, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

That is a valid assessment. I think as well that people focus more on the LLs than the factions. Do you think we should remove the faction crests then? Might get too cluttery with everything together. Hammerture (talk) 22:39, 23 May 2020 (UTC)Hammerture
I personally prefer keeping the factions at the forefront to avoid clutter, at least until they inevitably split all the LL's into their own faction. But I am not going to pretend I am any sort of authority on the matter. DonQOT (talk) 01:43, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
OK thanks for the feedback, how about we stick with the current layout for now, but I might set up some unprotected test pages (I think there might already be some existing ones, I'll have a search around) where everybody can experiment to see what looks good for the front page.

Inventory pages[]

Updating all of these is a big task, but a lot of the work is already done!

  • Articles need to be created for lots of items.
  • Other items / follower articles need proper updating with the right categories and information on effects/abilities.

I am looking at items, followers and banners and have noticed a variety of inconsistencies. For example, some items with an ability called after the item have said ability either described on the item's page OR signpost to the ability page (with only a minor number of pages actually populated). I would prefer to have pages for each item and then pages for each ability, and cross-reference where appropriate. => sorry, I need to remember how to label myself @akadunpeal-gpuser :(

Landmarks[]

The Special buildings page needs updating. Seems like every patch, a few more landmarks are added.

Furthermore, all the pages for the landmark buildings (see Category:Special landmark buildings for a list) should probably be categorised with stuff like Category:Mortal Empires landmarks and Category:Greenskins landmarks.

Special buildings are my jam, so I will be working towards fixing the red links and adding new ones when I have the time to indulge. DonQOT (talk) 01:45, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Important articles which need a major overhaul/updates[]

  • Eye of the Vortex - the province list is woefully out of date and the interactive map (while awesome) is out of date Revoran (talk) 08:31, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Unit stats needs[]

We need to think of a better way to handle unit stats, maybe with some kind of automation. It's just not practical to manually update hundreds of unit pages every patch. Revoran (talk) 11:06, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

I think there is a guy running a page that keeps track on unit stats. https://twwstats.com/ Might be worth to check it out if it can help us in some way? Hammerture (talk) 22:41, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Faction / race pages[]

There is a lot of unnecessary duplicate info.

For instance, we probably don't need to list every Empire mechanic on both Reikland and The Empire. Ideally, general Empire mechanics would go on the Empire race page. But any faction-specific mechanics could go on the Reikland/Golden Order/The Huntsmarshal's Expedition pages.

On the same topic: faction mechanics need much better coverage, especially for newer factions. Eg: need coverage of all the new mechanics for Greenskins.

I'll try to take a look on this. Hammerture (talk) 22:43, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Legendary Lord pages[]

Many of these need updating.

You can use Malekith as an example of a good one. --- Revoran

I'll be fiddling around with this one too. DonQOT (talk) 01:47, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Battle maps[]

The Wiki has basically zero information about these. We should probably at least cover the multiplayer ones.

Navbox fixes needed[]

I lack (have lost?) the ability to update navboxes and would like to update two particular matters. Specifically, "Da boys!" (Greenskin unit navbox) erroneously has Night Goblin Warboss in the base game section and the Mortal Empires navbox still has Lothern in the place of Eataine. Could somebody with the authority to do so please correct these? - 24.108.205.51 21:26, 1 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi, I think what's happened is that users who aren't logged in have lost the ability to edit these pages. Could you try creating an account/logging in and see if that fixes the issue? If not I'll fix those navboxes for you. ") -- Revoran 22:23, 2 November 2020 (UTC)

Beastmen "Beast Paths"[]

So I made a mistake and somehow garrisoned an army into a herdstone while they were in the beast paths and I can't find a way to get them out. is there any way for me to fix this? -- User:XOUTRYDERx 03:54 17 July 2021

Hi OUTRYDER, unfortunately I haven't come across that issue ... it sounds like a bug. You might want to report it on the official forums here. There might be someone else who has had the same issue, so have a look through the forum before posting.
Hope you find a solution and welcome to the wiki :) -- Revoran 09:06, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
