Error: Forging description is wrong (in General)

The forging page says:

"To forge an item, heat it and cast the enchanting spell (one of hardness/viciousness/accuracy, depending on the upgrade type.) Then heat it some more and cast tempering. Finally, cool it back down to start the cycle over. Other players can explain the process in more detail if you don't want to figure it out for yourself."

I believe it should read

"To forge an item, heat it and cast the enchanting spell (one of hardness/viciousness/accuracy, depending on the upgrade type.). Cool it all the way down then heat it some more and cast tempering. Finally, cool it back down to start the cycle over. Other players can explain the process in more detail if you don't want to figure it out for yourself."

Built in disclaimer;


"Other players can explain the process in more detail if you don't want to figure it out for yourself."

lol, make it bold next time...took me a while to see the purple...=P

But yes i noticed this a while ago too but never brought it up, not like it'll change anything anyway...

i see this in chat all the time "I'm new here, can someone explain the forging process to me please?"

lol, but yes, I'm sure that would be an easy change for Jon.

mrwuss: So you're saying that:
"Other players can explain the process in more detail"
is the same as
"Other players will tell you the way it actually works because following these instructions will never work"
?

Even better, change purple to:

"Cool it all the way down until progress meter increases then..."

Party pooper. :P

Me: "The instructions are wrong. If you follow them you will fail (even if you know the correct heating times"

SoulCalibur: Who cares? There's a forging tutorial!

Me: *sigh*

Have you read through the "help" page recently, there are a lot updates needed.

Sukotto [lookingglas] June 9 2005 9:41 PM EDT

Come on guys. This isn't that hard.

Sure there's a ton of info out there describing forging... But I don't need you to point me towards it. I'm just asking Jon to fix a piece of erroneous information on the first forging page.

Yeah, i've noticed that back in cb1, no wonder why every single new player says "can you tell me how to forge." At least the brief disclaimer should be slightly correct :P
