Wiki Bi-Weekly Issue 4

This week we bring you a lot of additions to the wiki, so... I was almost going to say buckle-up there, but I seriously doubt it's going to be that exciting :P

What's New?
Rejoice, for the Diablo II section of the wiki is almost done! I've now completed all areas (with some images" class="wiki-link">" alt=" - additional images"/> additional images uploaded as well, check that out). All we're missing are a few Super Unique monster pages, but other than that we now have all data: classes, skills, items, monsters, areas, quests, npcs. In short, everything Arreat Summit offers and more! Of course, there's still loads to be done. Guides have to be written, affix lists have to be created for item pages, game mechanis have to be more thouroughly explained. But the core is done.

Thanks to this, I've now moved all focus to the Diablo I section of the wiki. I've reformatted all I Quests" class="wiki-link">" alt=" - Diablo I Quests"/> Diablo I Quests and have continued with all monster pages.

Believe it or not, but some other people have in fact also been active these past two weeks in the wiki other than me! Don Guillotine has added some new trait information for all" class="wiki-link">" alt=" - classes"/> classes and Apoc has been filling out super unique pages faster than ever.

Surprisingly, we also have not only one, but three new contributors this last week. lMarcusl started it all off when he wrote his - Elementalist Elementalist Druid, who focuses on several elemental skills. Though very basic to begin with, he quickly grasped the basic wiki-structure and transformed it into a proper guide. And it is meant for singleplay, meaning it is capable of soloing Hell without any outside help. Useful for those of you who prefer singleplayer or playing on your own without depending on strong items.

On the other end of the spectrum, we have de wilde" class="wiki-link">" alt=" - gaby de wilde"/> gaby de wilde, who shortly after Marcus created a guide of his own, the - Amplify Damage Necro Amplify Damage Necro, an interesting build that focuses on high level Amplify Damage and Corpse Explosion in order to quickly devastate enemy monsters. This build however sacrifices all surviveability for damage and cheapness (in that it is not expensive). I don't know how well it works, but it is there, so feel free to try it.

Now I said three, and the last of our weekly contributors is" class="wiki-link">" alt=" - Ombra"/> Ombra who started expanding on some of our lore articles. Most of these articles do not have citations yet, but the general picture in them is definitely correct. Some of the finer details may be up for debate, but we'll sort that out eventually. So for a rundown on some of the characters in the Sin War, check out the - Inarius Inarius, - Oris Oris, - Gamuel Gamuel, - Edyrem Edyrem and - Lucion Lucion articles.

Article Spotlight
No spotlight this time. Partly because I'm lazy, and partly because we had such good contributions these past weeks.

What's Next?
Now it's time for Diablo I and whatever else people want to work with, but since I can't read minds I'll just put down what I know we'll be working on. Which is D1: classes, skills, levels etc.
