    THE FOLLOWING IS THE ORIGINAL OPENING POST:

    Whoever goes to the wiki for info will find there a powerful tool to understand Castle Age and to improve his/her gameplay.

    That said, we all know most of its content could use a "revamp" or an update to make it more accurate and easy to read. If you read the comments, it remains clear that many people go there for answers but they lack the patience to read all the data or the ability to understand it, leaving discouraged. If that people can't find there what they need, it is hard they will come to the forum and ask here (even though forumites really care for beginners).

    I propose an update & simplfication of the data at the wiki. What would I do?

    - Move all the lore to a "spoiler" tab. If anyone wants to read it, display; otherwise it will discourage to read and/or search the real valuable data.
    - Delete all mentions/references to content no longer available (like "this works different in Festival", for example). We lose game history but we gain real useful info.
    - Delete all connection to Mithology that people made up.
    - Regarding to epics/legendaries threesholds, I would write all of them in the same pattern, for example:
    1 epic: starts at x.xxx.xxx damage, 99% at yy.yyy.yyy damage. Most people doesn't understand the ~symbol (~100%) and get confused.

    I am pretty sure most links still work and most pics are correctly in place, but they could be revised too.

    Of course, the most important task would be revising each damage spreadsheet to update nowadays thresholds.

    It might be a hard and boring task, but I really think it might bring better comprehension for new players and help them stick with the game instead of leaving to easier ones. And we all want this game to live and have new breed, don't we?

    I will start cleaning up one of the first monsters. Then I'll post a link here for you to visit and give feedback. Someone with a good knowledge of English grammar and vocabulary could go there and correct it; then someone with love for numbers could look at the spreadsheet and update numbers, etc. Once we find something we all like, we could apply that pattern to the rest of the pages, general descriptions, etc.

    Someone willing to help? If a third of the people in this forum helped for an hour or so, this task would be done quite fast And, even if we don't come to an agreement or we fail to keep it updated, those few revamped pages will be of help for newcomers.

    Go where? It's not like we have homes to return to. We don't exist, remember?

    I am not sure that many people even know how to edit the wiki and even if they did they are A: probably going to make a giant uncoordinated mess and B: not motivated to help.
    Perhaps you could screenshot an example to get all others to match?

    Plain text editing is easy, but I never tried anything "deeper", maybe it is more diffcult than I expected. We'll see
    I'll have some free time during the weekend and will post the result.

    EDIT: I am editing Aurora now to get familiar with the tools; might finish it today or leave it for Sunday

    AURORA UPDATED/REVAMPED

    http://castleage.wikia.com/wiki/Aurora_(monster)

    Changes were nothing drastic:

    - Put all the Lore data inside a "spoiler" button, so everybody reach the useful info faster.
    - I really like the template with % of loot at the beginning; I completed the missing data looking at the spreadsheet.
    - Deleted most of the duplicated info.
    - Deleted notes regarding festival.
    - Deleted a few blank spaces; others are still there but I don't know how to deal with them (yet)

    Future:
    - Might rewrite the explanation of divine armor
    - Maybe minor tweaks on capitals, bolds, underlined...

    I did all of this from a desktop user point of view. It might be missing/messing something if opened with a phone (anyone willing to test?)

    So... did it get worse, better or it was just a little make up? Is it worth applying this formula to the other monsters? (Other concepts might use its own pattern, like generals, alchemies, etc.)

    Not sure that putting lore into a button matters either way, but nice that its been updated...

    I was planning to rewrite the divine power farming guide but I'm terrible at formatting.

    If somebody is willing to help me with that I'll write out the info along with instructions on what goes where

    Me too. But I guess that once the text is updated, others with knowledge on these things will join and help where we failed.
