Nightmare value not working[edit]

The following part where the value is inserted is not working. If someone knows how to fix it, please do!

Nightmare turns affected targets invulnerable for {{#show:#Nightmare|?value4#}} second, preventing affected units from waking up.

Role Change and Trivia[edit]

Why don't we get rid of this support/ganker role and change it to disabler

Regarding the trivia section, the naming for Bane Elemental doesn't come from any real world sources, (Although Atropos is one of the fates in greek mythology) The entire character is homage to the Ogre Battle/Tactics Ogre series.(Specifically the GBA Game Tactics Ogre Knight of Lodis released in 2001.) Atropos is the name of a special attack in the game (The names of the other greek fates are also named special techniques) and the 4 spells Bane elemental has are 4 of the "Bane" Element spells available to characters in game.

You can add in the trivia first if you want. This wiki does not have a "disabler" role, so just leave it like that. Redefining history 03:47, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Old images?[edit]

I swore this page had the updated images for his spells and portrait. Why are they not up anymore?

It worked. Are you a wizard? Maybe I should look into what exactly a "cache" is. But seriously thanks.

Trivia: Atropos and atrophy[edit]

Words Atropos and atrophy are not related to each other. The word Atropos (ἄτροπος) means not to be turned, unchangeable, eternal (http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/morph?l=atropos&la=greek#lexicon), and it ultimately comes from the Greek verb trepō (τρέπω), meaning to turn (http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/morph?l=trepw&la=greek#lexicon), while atrophy (ἀτροφία) means want of food or nourishment (http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/morph?l=atrofia&la=greek#lexicon) and ultimately comes from the Greek verb trefō (http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/morph?l=trefw&la=greek#lexicon), meaning to thicken, to fatten (http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/morph?l=trefw&la=greek#lexicon).
