  • Hello, fellow wikian and Infinity Blade enthusiast. My name is Arctic Blue, and I’m a bureaucrat of this wiki.

    If you’ve been here for a while, you might’ve noticed that this wiki is in a rapid state of deterioration. And it’s been this way for almost two years. None of the admins, myself included, have contributed much to the wiki. We’ve all been incredibly inactive. Most of the projects have yet to be finished. Vandalism runs rampant, and the only person who’s been trying to address that issue is my colleague, Cheese Ausar.

    Why is the wiki in such a sorry state? Well, 1) IB3 has been released for about 3 years, so it’s understandable that people such as myself have gradually lost interest in the game, and 2) because we, meaning the administrators, have led pretty busy lives, impeding our abilities to work efficiently on our hobbies, such as maintaining this wiki.

    But that ends now.

    I, for one, can not tolerate the ‘inevitable’ collapse of this wiki, and I’m sure that my fellow bureaucrats and administrators are with me in this issue.

    The Infinity Blade Wiki started back in 2011, and hundreds of wikians have strived to make it an informative encyclopedia on everything related to Infinity Blade. Many of them have left, but their efforts shall not be in vain. Even as people lose interest in this game, it’s imperative that the admin team continue what our predecessors started.

    Why am I so committed to a ‘dead’ game, you might ask? Because this wiki is so much more than just a collection of information that people reference when they’re stuck on a game. This wiki is a community, a library of knowledge and and a work of passion created by those who share the same love for the Infinity Blade series.

    When I first started playing Infinity Blade I back in 2012, I thought it was the coolest thing ever, and I’m sure that many of you guys did too. The game completely blew my mind. It had an intricate plot, a well designed combat system, good voice acting, amazing graphics, an interesting concept, and most importantly, one of the best bosses I have ever fought in a video game. I mean sure, some other games have pretty cool bosses too, the Dark Souls series being a notable example. But the God King, as you meet him in Infinity Blade I, is absolutely amazing. He has a gorgeous moveset, a cool armor set, and an amazing weapon, the Infinity Blade. There were even in-game secrets in the form of Archarin. It almost completely revolutionized mobile gaming, as have Infinity Blade II and III.

    Then I discovered this wiki. At first, I used it just to discover in-game secrets and glitches. Here, I read about Ryth, the Vile Set and the Holy Band, and the Skycages. I learned the formulas for Spectrum Defense and Darkfire, and of course, I began to abuse the scrolling glitch (it’s patched now, by the way). I was too intimidated to contribute to this wiki, though. How could I, a novice Infinity Blade player, have anything useful to write about on such an amazing site?

    Then came Infinity Blade III.

    Within a few weeks, I became one of the most avid players of the new game. I defeated Galath once, twice, then hundreds of times. I became ranked on Game Center as one of the Top 50 in terms of level and Worker of Secrets ranking. I felt unstoppable.

    And I noticed that, interestingly enough (to me at the time), there wasn’t much information on the newly released game. Terrovax, Melek, Therin and the like all had their own pages, but the NPCs didn’t. The weapon pages weren’t there. The plot hadn’t been summarized yet. Most unforgivably, the dragon (now known as Ba’el) didn’t even have her own page.

    So I decided to write a separate page for the dragon and what I felt was the optimal strategy to defeating her (heavy weapons). I wrote about how to distinguish a dragon encounter from a regular one. I uploaded screenshots of the Dragonslayer mission. A few seconds later, Slayingthehalcyon sent me a message on my wall, welcoming me to the wiki.

    I became obsessed with this wiki. I created dialogue templates for every boss in the game, once Slay taught me how to code (thanks again m9 XD). Later, I made weapon pages for both Siris and Isa. And of course, I finished writing the Infinity Blade III page, both here, and on wikipedia.

    Fast forward to one month later.

    I woke up one day and found this message posted on my wall:

    You are now an administrator of the Infinity Blade Wiki. I don't think you need much of an explanation, you could probably figure that out for yourself. The important thing is, you were seen as worthy, and now have some new powers to help you out with a few more advanced editing tasks along with mandatory respect from regular editors. Welcome to the team!

    —-Hackey 5



    It was, without question, the best day (or at least, one of the best days) of my life. I had been offered an important position by someone I deeply respected. This spoke volumes to me and I began to edit with even greater confidence. I wanted to share my passion for this game, and to show others that they too could one day rise to a position of importance. I met Shadow.blank (now ChaoticShadow), Ninjablademaster, Darth Siris, Mugen Galath, and BASHIHBK01. I got to know Cheese and Hackey better. And of course, I chatted with Slay almost every day. It was an amazing experience for me, and I have these awesome people to thank for making it so (seriously, I love you guys).

    So there you have it. This is why I love this wiki and its community so much. This is why I -- we -- are so loathe to see it simply fade away into nothing.

    And we need YOUR help.

    We need to document the Infinity Blade III enemies. We need to finish up the dialogue pages for each boss. There should also be a strategy chapter attached to each boss page, their movesets, combos, weapons. And finally, equipment pages. I don’t expect anyone else to work on this, but I will be releasing a guide soon on how to obtain sprites from the official Infinity Blade website.

    Together, we can make this wiki great again.

    I hope to hear from you soon.

      No, the founding team abandoned the wiki long ago in favor of a new site at Curse, but that went defunct. We adopted it, but alas history repeats itself.

    • Maybe before you leave you could protect pages, and only allow admins to edit them. 

      If history's going to repeat itself, then I'll try to make sure anyone who adopts it knows what they're doing. I'm the founder of two Wikis, and I'm an admin on another, so I'll try to keep the place running as much as I can. I haven't played in a while either.

      Hmm. I don't intend to abandon it completely, so I can still perhaps keep it in check.

      But yes, it is clear what will happen if we were to leave indefinitely.

    • I joined this wiki almost three years ago. Sadly, my interested dimmed and I became inactive exactly a year later, not before me and one other attempted to revive the wiki as you have done now. Clearly you are more committed than I was and it is great to see so all this time later. I'm glad I picked the right people for it. Good work, guys!

    • Blue I'm the long text guy. Don't steal my spot >.<

      Honestly though, I should come on here on a regular basis, which is 100% my fault. Lack of content made me lose interest in the game, and with the wiki pretty much being dead for months straight at a time it didn't help me to stay active.

      You can't post that sprites guide though. That job is reserved for the two of us late at night getting frustrated with the sprites not all being sized the same and having to resize them and put them onto some random template page >.<

      Anyhow, I'm back for now, at least until the summer ends since I won't have as much free time but I will still try my best.

      And I can't believe you still have that text bubble thingie.

      Long text guy is Hackey. Neither of you can live up to his skills. Kappa


      But really, it's not your fault. you're not online most of the time on Steam at any rate, so I'd suppose you're busy. Couple that with a lack of interest, and I can't blame you.

    • Sup, my uh, Ninjas? #PraizeHaga anyway.

      Let's get this party started.

      1. Remember what happened last time when we had to post something like this BibleThump

      2. Bash, we don't love you either <3 :P ;) :)
        • But for real though, we don't ;) ;) *lennie*
      3. CloneCommando99: I laud that effort. Your willingness to contribute to the wiki, is awesome. :)
      4. >>I wish I was more active around here. I hope to be in the next few days. What you should do is have a few rollbacks to ensure the vandalism thing doesn't happen. And if you had maybe two assistant admins, they could run the Wiki if you leave forever.
        • This does not work if a wiki does not have an active user base. I personally know this, as I was the sole bureaucrat/admin on the Pokémon wiki six months.
      5. >>Is the current administration the founding administration?
        • They've already left, but I knew one of the founding admin/crats, extremely well. I have a large amount of edits on the curse site for this wiki, which was where the wiki was forked too. I had planned to adopt this wiki, but a staffer named Rappy told me I should go to curse... So almost 3k edits later I came back here and found that Hackey and Cheese had co-dopted the wiki. I came and began editing here again. The founding admin/crat I knew left the curse site when I arrived, he, passed the torch to me, *if you will.* He is no longer on wikia, his account was, per request, phalanxed.
      6. >>Maybe before you leave you could protect pages, and only allow admins to edit them. If history's going to repeat itself, then I'll try to make sure anyone who adopts it knows what they're doing.

        • The first sentence in this, is against Wikia ToU, you cannot protect all the pages so that only admins can edit them. History repeats itself for those who do not learn from it. Anyone who adopts this wiki is going to find the snowball mess that we started, but never finished cleaning up. - I am a bureaucrat on 14 wikis two of which I started myself - currently all the wikis I am bureaucrat on, are set to email me when user rights change... I also haven't played since spring of last year, when I sold my ipod.

      Now, for uhm general condolences et cetera et cetera, ad infinitum.....

      ABlue you have surpassed me in just about everything that I taught you. I may know more computer languages than you (and at this point, that might not even be true), but you always have, and always will learn the language better than I ever attempt too learn it (or them.... :P)

      Hackey, I figure you've seen this, and more than likely commented... even a noob could figure that out.... Thanks for letting me in as admin without even questioning, it was nice to come back to a wiki site without being met with hate and resistance.

      Darth, FML, for the longest time I thought you were insane, and more than likely, I still probably would, if we ever were to chat again.

      Bash, you for real, kill me, yahknow we undid almost EVERY category edit you did? xD Like, famaron blvd, you riggity rekt up the place. xD But you were a humorous little bugger, and that's something I miss...... but not as much as I have missed kicking you from chat at random, and then claiming it was an accident. ;) :*

      Cheese, I'm pretty positive you did, and still do (>.>) hate my guts. I've always gotten the vibe, that since I became admin, that you did not (and still) don't like me.

      Mugen, brohannse, stop being so damned straight edge. Jezuz mayne....

      Ninja, you sir, are wicked ridiculous when it comes to sending responses to dead wiki messages. xD Guilty Geckos (GG) my fam.

      And... without further adue (sp).... I no longer have an iDevice upon which to play Infinity Blade, I have not had one since around... eh... Spring of last year when I ruined my ipad mini... and consequently lost my global ranking in all three games... My old userpage has where I was ranked, three months before I lost my iPad mini. *le sniffle*

      That being said, I still have data and sprite dumps for IB1 and IB2.... the only real sprite collecting that needs to happen is for IB3. :D I got everything else. :) I will soon be collecting GMAIL accounts for various people so that they can also have access to the sprites. :) This way it is not my sole /burden/ to do so. As I have an extreme tendency to forget about the wiki... as proven by my "AFK" messages in chat, 3 or so years ago.... after which I would disappear for hours at a time, or just not even come back until the next day. (Sorry Ablue... CS.... Ninja.... Bash....)

      If we want a more active userbase, we can try all kinds of things... I think I still have the wiki's facebook page on my facebook account. We could get publicity if we started posting on it, and/or opened a twitter for the wiki as well.

      That may as well wrap up my st00f, but, I've long since had a new skin for the wiki planned out....on a hidden wiki... it just needs to be finished.... I started it when the global nav came out... but never got around to finishing it, because I started college (and consequently quit going after two semesters) and got wrapped up in "adulting" in general.

      I may not constantly be on wikia, I work anywhere from 32-60 hours a week. Peace out... my ninjas....
