Well I think Topaz should send you to the normal quality of topaz. Because though it does make sense to have it send you to a page with a list of all topaz, it may get annoying when specifically just looking for topaz.
On the other hand though if you type in topaz and it takes you to the topaz gem page the varying degrees of other topaz should be right there in front of you to click in the article itself. So it's kinda the same way that way.
The text of the ruby article is a missing a little, it doesn't mention it adds fire damage, and it doesn't mention that it adds fire resist in shields. Otherwise good.
Types of gems
We need to utilize all forms of the specific gem onto one page. We can setup redirect pages for their actual names, which will lead them to the basic names of them (e.g. Topaz, Diamond).
I think you mean that we should put chipped, flawed, normal, flawless and perfect gems oft he same type (e.g. ruby) on the same page, and not split them up, and I think that's a good idea.
So what I'm saying is that all ruby gems all link to the same article.
We then compare the gem's usefulness to the rune's usefulness. This includes stat comparison and rarity.
How are you going to compare a gem's usefulness to a rune? There's not a whole lot to say, most of the time runes are superior, unless you're smacking a helm or shield full of p. topazes or such. But that's not a comparison to runes, more a general description of their usefulness.
A navigation bar that has a complete list of every gem (including skulls) should be implemented.
It think it's sufficient to have the category at the bottom of the page. After all, we will only have 7 gem pages in total, and they will all fit perfectly well in the bottom category of the page.
And also, all images of the gems should be uploaded.
We may also want to consider special templates (i.e. For the gem's infobox).
Yes, and I think the gem template table current?y used could be improved.
