Template talk:Cosmic forces and magics

  • {{Schools of magic}} is the gameplay version of this, and already has a bit of a problem with lore versus gameplay, though keeping it purely based on WoW mechanics would also be good.
  • I think that the above template could be expanded to hold both (with a (lore) note?), as there is some inherent redundancy between the topics.
  • Another suggestion would be to organize it more like the image that this is based on, with forces and magics being in one row, with elements being in another. Only the "Order" row, which links to a single sentence, has any weight to it.
  • Maybe it could also have a row for the non-canon magic schools of the RPG for completeness (though based on how that page is a mess, I would need to check how they actually work again).--SWM2448 21:43, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
Right now it's a weird mash-up of lore and gameplay (Holy magic, for instance, is purely a gameplay mechanic with no real lore basis), with the result that it's not particularly useful to either. I'd definitely prefer to leave all the gameplay stuff to {{schools of magic}} and for this to focus entirely on lore, with as little overlap as possible between them. -- DarkTZeratul (talk) 05:02, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
This is a lore template. Holy magic is also a lore term per the Chronicle and Legion (and maybe more). --Mordecay (talk) 15:24, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
