I feel like several articles of this wiki, especially the ones dedicated to bosses, are in dire need of help.
They suffer from a lot of flaws, I will try to mention the most important ones, along with examples:
1) Misinformation: Some tips are sadly misinformed, and spread incorrect rumors and wrong strategies to new players and older players alike.
"Seath is blind, as noted in the description of the Helm of the Channelers. Use the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring or the sorcery Hush to make it harder for Seath to detect you."
Or, about the Centipede Demon "Stay beneath him as much as possible."
Or on the Bed of Chaos "Be careful as a minor appendage will appear in attempt to knock you away from making the drop" "Note that the heart is a small insect like creature that can damage you. Deal with it swiftly."
2) Overly subjective tips or strategies that are too specific to a certain build/item or are not really relevant to the boss as a whole.
"Pinwheel is vulnerable to pyromancy, which can be a good strategy choice for any player. Equip your pyromancy spells, and be patient and wait for Pinwheel to settle down after teleporting. Eight fireballs from level one pyromancy should take it down to 1/3 its health. Combustion, Great Combustion, or one of the area of effect firestorm-type pyromancies can also be extremely effective"
"TIP: Ornstein is weak against fire, using a +5 fire weapon in this fight will be significantly easier. However, if you do not have easy access to the Fire Ember located in the Demon Ruins (After Queelag's domain) needed to upgrade a weapon to fire attribute, Queelag's Furysword is also a good alternative"
On Moonlight Butterfly "If you have the Sunlight Spear miracle, a few strikes will make this fight easy as pie."
These are just not relevant. Fire is not specifically powerful for any reason, they're just not resistant to it. If a boss has a specific resistance (for example, Ceaseless Discharge being immune against fire) it should be noted, but are these things really worth mentioning? They bloat the articles with useless information.
3) Strategy bloat in general. Our Bed of Chaos page has no less than 3 strategies in it, for a boss that only leaves room for one, and maybe a couple of tips.
It is my personal opinion that most strategies should be removed in favor of more general things. For example, writing down all the attacks, and how to dodge the more tricky ones, or noting which ones create openings, make for a more universal, better "strategy". Our current system of strategies just encourages people to write whatever they used to good effect against the boss in question, and our game has so much variety, which leads to our problem number 2.
4) General disorganization: If some of the very specific tips and strategies are to stay, they should be moved to a separate subpage/tab or something, also all boss pages should have at least a similar structure to make them easy to read. Some are too filled with videos and several versions of the same strategy, hiding the essential information in a sea of redundancy.
In another note, pages should have a more objective and serious feel to them. Many are filled with what feels like personal comments from various editors, or have formatting errors. Our Bed of Chaos page I linked above even links to the Other Dark Souls wiki which I believe should not be right.
I have been meaning to make this thread since a while, but not knowing if I had the required time/effort to help on this myself made me stop the previous times.
Sorry for being (maybe?) overly critical, but I believe it's the best way to improve these articles and rescue them from disrepair.
The plan would be to go one boss at a time, revamping their pages into more refined ones.
I will post in this thread again if I want to start making big changes to the articles in question (with the specific changes), so don't worry about me going and altering the articles in a radical way.
If anyone has any opinion about this it would be nice to hear, especially if you disagree!
