Talk:Ray

Jump to: navigation, search

I love the new "Bouncing rays" section, but perhaps we could change the "~" symbol with "/","\","-" and "|"?

It's just that this:

     -----------
     |../\.....|
     |./..\....+
     |/....@...|
     |\........|
     -----------


Would look a little better than this: (in my humble opinion, of course)

     -----------
     |..~~.....|
     |.~..~....+
     |~....@...|
     |~........|
     -----------

Just a thought, what do you people think?

I changed the article to use the proper ray symbols. --paxed 15:55, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

breath attacks

Why clutter the article with nine types of dragons, if each one links back to the same page? I'm for merging them all. -Tjr 04:03, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

It is repetitive, but the point is to provide a complete list of the different ray attacks. The links are secondary; e.g. if you look on the d page- there is a precedent for this (all linking to canine). An improvement I'd suggest may be to link by element, and then ensure that the element articles include for descriptions of these attacks. In which case, I'd be happy for the list to merge until this happens.--PeterGFin 10:35, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
