Notice the "s" on the first one in the word "QuestS".

The singular is from page:
http://compendium.ddo.com/wiki/Category:Quests
(actually, you have to hit "next 200", which brings you to page: http://compendium.ddo.com/index.php?title=Category:Quests&from=Return+to+the+Sanctuary )

The plural is from page:
http://compendium.ddo.com/wiki/Category:Quests_by_Level
(expand "Level 17 quests" to see the link)

This is related to a little project I've been slowly picking through. A player had taken time to create some very nice pages for quests by hand back before Duwis figured out how to get quest game data to start showing in the Compendium. The game data came in on "Quest" and the hand made ones are in "Quests" (plural). I'm having to hand merge all the player data into the game data pages so they'll be in one place. I just haven't gotten a chance to do them all, but it's something I plan on picking over heavily during the holidays.

Tolero, would you mind renaming the thread to say Compendium instead of DDO wiki?

Well since we are on the subject. I have a couple questions on this. So it seems that some of these quests have game feeds and some don't. I am working on a little project myself and have come across a list of quests that seem suspect. Now some appear to be just mistakes from players. Others appear to be game feeds, with quest XP and objectives though no known quest currently in game seems to match.

So are these just people screwing around? Are these honest mistakes? Or are these game feeds of dead quests or some that did not make the cut? Possible future quest? Doubtful... but who knows. Even quests that appear to have game feeds are missing important info so I am not sure how all this ties together or what it means.

Likely this is just a big pile of rumor mongering, forum trolling, flaming fodder...

Anyway... here is THE list!

PPS - I am at work so much of the forums is blocked (meaning spell check and other nice clean up features) and I suck at spelling... sorry.

Most of them appear to be quests the devs partially completed but for whatever reason never made it into the game. Some date back to as early as beta - like the key of many colors, which appears to be a followup to STK.

There all based on ingame data so im sure the quests are actaully accessible by the devs.. Some may be used as testing areas.

Re: Tolero fixing quests duplicates.. You know the players can actually help do this too. Simply have to put a #Redirect in the player generated page to the official, then copy over any extra info from the player page to the official one.
The only things we can't do is fix any official game info mixtakes, like missing objectives, but there aren't too many of these. That and fix the index.
I actaully fixed a couple already a while ago as I was bored.

Should be easy to tell whether or not the quest was from an automated update or a player messing around. Hit the history button to see *WHO* made the update, I'm seeing a lot of

Useful :)

Also I think I love the objectives from Time Bandits:
http://compendium.ddo.com/wiki/Quest:Time_Bandits

Objectives:
You must fulfill all of the quest objectives.
Kill a kobold
Kill another kobold

Optional Objectives:
Kill yet another kobold
Bonus: 20% of base XP

When can we play that 'un :)

Yeah those "mystery" quests are old game data that it managed to translate even though it didn't need to (nor should it). Feel free to hit the "report article" icon on pages like that so Duwis and I can clean them up (and the above list helps, thank you). Happens with items and NPCs sometimes too.

Re: Shade - player help. By all means, any players who'd like to help with the moves are more than welcome to do so. It's pretty easy... /copy paste save into the proper spots and redirect the old page links. Didn't want to seem like I was "expecting" players to do them, but perhaps that was too far in the other direction of what I meant lol. Ultimately one way or another it's info that should be fixed :) and anyone who is interested is more than welcome to lend a hand!

Bad, bad Tolero. You're supposed to tell them to use the merge page function.

EDIT: I just realized you guys didn't implement that function for a reason or another. Oh well. Nvm.

Sounds like what Tear of Dhakaan eventually became
