Why does "Daemon" link to Doomguard? it's just not needed. - Ragestorm, Head Bookkeeper 6 Feb, 2006, 18:45 (EST)

Why is Fel Orc there? Fel Orcs are classified as humanoid, leaving one to believe that the blood infusion doesn't corrupt them enough to grant demonic status. Moonshadow101

All demons may have been mortal once?

Demons were mortal once, but have been transformed by their conversion into demonic beings. This change includes a powerful command of arcane energy. They define and control this arcane power with the force of their will, much as sorcerers and wizards do.[1]

Its old information, but interesting nether the less, considering the fact that we got storylines for Felguards, and Man'ari Eredar suggesting this same thing... It really opens up the possibility that perhaps Sargeras did fight some evil Eredar at one point, and perhaps that's what lead him to their Argus in the first place... Speculation, but a good author could tie it all togetherBaggins

Where does it say Felguards were?  IconSmall HighElf Male.gif Mr.X8 Talk Contribs 04:57, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

All demons evil?

Last I checked Sargares is misunderstood or an insomniac. Just because a character has those traits does not make em evil (feel free to spam this bad joke) --The last Alterac 11:27, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Yeah the poor fella is misunderstood. All he really wants when he destroys your planet is a hug:) (Keilden 11:39, 23 January 2008 (UTC))

He may be insane, but the insanity of a titan is a force to be reckoned with, so his threat must be ended nonetheless. ~My rage bar is blue and I start the fight pissed - Peregrine 13:09, 23 January 2008 (UTC)
Also, there's the example in Ashenvale of the Satyr who get "redeemed," thus implying that at least some demons have control over their "evility." MynockSpit (talk) 02:50, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Unique Individuals

What are the Demon Lords of Dungeons & Dragons lore doing on the list of "Unique Individuals"? --Super Bhaal (talk) 10:54, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Races?

It may take a year, but shouldn't some of the races be removed now that Appendix Three was thrown out? For instance, stirge demon and alu-demon. Rolandius Paladin.gif (talk - contr) 05:37, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Table splitting

Would anyone know how to split rows in a table ? For example, in the "Races" section, I'd like the Sayaad/Succubus/Incubus rows to look like Succubus and Incubus are part of the Sayaad, and not different from them. So this. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by MyMindWontQuiet (talk · contr).

You could do something like this:

Race Description Homeworld
IconSmall PitLord.gif Annihilan (or pit lords) Gigantic generals who lead the armies of the Legion, surpassed in power only by the demonic eredar. Unknown
Sayaad IconSmall Succubus.gif Succubus They serve the Burning Legion by conducting nightmarish interrogations. Unknown
Incubi Have never been seen. Unknown

The problem is that tables are not good for a parent/child structure. This won't work for eredar, imp, infernal, or mo'arg where the parent would have their own description. --Aquamonkeyeg (talk) 23:03, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

But it looks messy IMO and might as well go back to the bulleted list which is better for this kind of format. --Aquamonkeyeg (talk) 23:13, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Thanks. I see the problem, and I've found a solution. Give me a few minutes. -- MyMindWontQuiet (talk) 23:14, 24 January 2017 (UTC)
Tables are nice for their clarity, while bulleted lists are nice for their hierarchy. It is possible to use both. Keep the table, but instead of merging the rows as I suggested before, the result should be [[1]]. Just need to figure out how to do it. -- MyMindWontQuiet (talk) 23:22, 24 January 2017 (UTC)
