So one thing I've noticed about this page, you linked the living hell out of things. So you have a passage that's like this:

Where both favor and globe are linked excessively. On the style page it says you only need to link them the first time you use them. If it's a long page, and hasn't been linked in awhile you can link it again, but don't need to. On the other hand, I don't tend to link things nearly enough, so who knows. Rafi knows, but he doesn't contribute often enough. Also, I removed all the links to the levels of favor page because I think that that doesn't need its own page and directing to a favor page is fine. That's just my opinion though. Otherwise, good start on a very important page, and I learned some things checking it over, which is fun. justin talk 12:46, 28 November 2006 (EST)

Totally my bad. I'm very used to working on a mathematics page where every single time a term is referenced, it must be linked for clarity to at least a definition page, and at best a disambiguation page. It's super important for mathematics, I suppose, where every character can have a number of meanings. I'll clean up the links on this page and some of my other ones with this rule in mind later tonight. THIKKET 15:17, 28 November 2006 (EST)

Most terms should be linked, but only the first appearance needs to be linked unless the page is extremely long. I generally use once per two sections, since that's usually about enough to fill a screen. It's not a huge big deal, but articles just look silly when they've over-linked.

Why was the verification note removed from this page? It's very important that this information is out of date. I and Sigurd haven't done research for like eight years... The note was: NOTE: The following notes on favor are based on research performed in Gemstone III, not Gemstone IV. Facts about favor usage and costs should be re-verified. I copied the style from the 925 page. I think it should remain, but I don't know if there's a rule against this. Please respond. THIKKET 17:17, 28 November 2006 (EST)

I removed it because I saw Porcell verify that this was indeed the case. Also, it is the case that a wind wraith gives say 60 units of favor (or whatever level they are). So the note was just removed because your information is indeed correct ;). However, I'm not sure how much favor you gain just from watching something get pwnt. Also, even though that note is huge and f2cking red on the 925 page, I hate it. But that's just me. justin talk 17:59, 28 November 2006 (EST)

Excellent! I'm glad to hear that it's been checked. If memory serves, one receives 1/3rd normal favor from simply watching an undead die... But that could be way wrong, especially since I'm recalling that from 8 years ago, when the game was so different. It'd be easy to test for someone in Voln, though, knowing that the other values are correct! I'll also edit the little sentence on the linearity of favor gain. Thank you for the quick reply.

Where do you get the visions in the Ta'Vaalor monastery? Visions are mentioned for the Landing and River's Rest monasteries, but not that one. GEHAYI (talk) 16:35, 3 April 2018 (CDT)
