Script errors

This page is broken. Starting from the "Armour/Energy Shield Gloves" section there are "script error"s all the way down. Entranced (talk) 00:23, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

What I think is happening is that loading every single armor type requires too many simultaneous queries to whatever database, and the "script error" might just be a result of the database refusing any further entries. The same error happens on the Weapon page too, but if you click on the link to the individual armor/weapon subset pages, they load just fine. What I'm going to do is edit these pages to only show the links to each category (e.g. Helms, armors, etc). It's not a perfect solution, but having script errors preventing content from loading defeats the purpose of having it all on one page anyways, and it's unlikely that anyone looking at this page is going to need ALL the equipment listed every single time. This should also prevent any unneeded server or database load. Softcorps (talk) 07:12, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Different kinds of headers

Looks like we have different kinds of headers for the same information, both in this article and in the articles derived from it:

  • The helmets that require Strength and give Armor have the header: "Heavy plate helmets"
  • In the Helmet article, helmets that require Strength and give Armor have the header: "Heavy Plate Helmets (Armour)"
  • The gloves that require Strength and give Armor have the header:"Armour Gloves"
  • In the Gloves article, gloves that require Strength and give Armor have the header: "Armour Gloves (Strength)"

So we have four different ways of making headers basically for the same thing. For the sake of consistency, I think we should pick one format and go with it.
I suggest using the "Armour Gloves (Strength)" format (so it would be "[defense] [piece of armor] ([attribute])". My reasoning is that the name of each type of equipment isn't very well known (bascinet, leather pelt, scale gauntlet, etc), so I think most people would search for a given piece of equipment based on what defense it gives and what attribute it requires. Since not all pieces of armor that give Armour actually require Strength (low level items have no requirement), I think we could list first the defense the item gives, and in parenthesis the usual attribute requirement.
