Wrong Image[edit source]

In the Priest section, the Herald Volazj shows a wrong imagen of this card; it doesn't show the "current" image. I edited this section making no changes to try the page update it and show the right one this way. Any idea Why's this happening? FeliasSnape (talk) 18:57, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

Annoyingly, this just seems to be a common problem with images updating/caching. In this case I've bypassed the issue by simply deleting the image and re-uploading it, so it's up to date now. In general, though, there's nothing to do but wait. -- Taohinton (talk) 20:57, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

Can too[edit source]

The words heard during the trailer for this expansion have been the subject of an ongoing and snail-paced edit war for nearly a year now. I've reached out to the devs, but until if and when they get back to me, it's up to us to decide what words to put at the top of the article.

The words in contention are "can" - or, alternatively, "can't". This is from this line, where she says "You [can/can't] lock your doors, you [can/can't] say your prayers, no creature can resist their wicked words!"

The main problem in the matter is the ambiguity of the audio, and the voice actor's "Jamaican" troll accent. Various editors have argued that the words in question sound like "can" when they are in fact "can't" - due to her accent.

Whichever words we choose, I would prefer to choose a version and stick to it, rather than have editors semi-regularly switching the text back and forth.

For my part, I believe the correct word to be "can". Besides the actual audio, this makes sense: the narrator is telling us that we can lock our doors and say as many prayers as we like, but nothing will save us from the Old Gods. The alternative reading, "can't", makes no sense: We can't lock our doors? We can't say our prayers? Why would the Old Gods even care if we said prayers? What good is a door against the Old Gods? Why would not being able to say prayers be an example of the threats of the Old Gods? In my opinion the former makes a lot more sense, and is fairly common phrasing in the English language (e.g. "You can run and hide all you like, nothing will stop me from having my revenge!").

Let's see if we can come to a consensus on this. -- Taohinton (talk) 00:57, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

I can see how the prayer line might be misheard as "can't", but the door part is definitely "can", and, as you say, makes a lot more sense in context. --DeludedTroll (talk) 16:40, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
