Its an interesting note that the RPG distinguishes between Ancients(capitalization), and ancients(non-capitalization) to differentiate between the "demi-gods" and the "trees".Baggins 11:27, 10 November 2006 (EST)


Don't Ancients have their own language? I think this was mentoined in War of the Ancients. --Ramming pure 07:43, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

If so we need to add the information to the article, with the citations. The currently listed languages are the ones that the RPG says they speak.Baggins 03:12, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Yes I read the book and it does say something about that on page 262. "The demigod — Cenarius — he taught you to speak with the trees, to cast such spells?" This is Rhonin speaking to Malfurion who could understand the language. As for the language they don't mention even what the trees say just that "The leaves of the trees began to rustle even though Rhonin could feel no wind". Rolandius (talk) 12:21, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
Err... I think they're speaking figuratively. Malfurion and other druids are communicating via their empathy for the land. Remember that Furion has also been seen "talking" to animals, stones, and the weather. I'm not saying that trees and such don't have their own language (depending on your definition), just that that sentence isn't really evidence of such.
I think we've already discussed that Ancients probably speak in humanoid languages, just slower and more Entish. --Ragestorm (talk · contr) 12:40, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Split? Edit

This article is the explanation for what should be placed in Category:Ancients, but it's very ambiguous to me. Do Ironbark Protector and Agamaggan really belong in the same category? I would make the category refer only to the tree-like ancients and put all the famous Ancients in category:Demigods, but then where should fox and stick bug go? Looking for advice from those more familiar with lore on what this category should contain. -- Mordsith - (talk|contr) 21:06, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

The fox and stick bug would be be demigods, too, by that split. --Ragestorm (talk · contr) 21:25, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. Then unless there's any dissent, when I get back around to this category I'm going to clarify that it's for the tree-like ancients and move all of the Ancients to Category:Demigods. -- Mordsith - (talk|contr) 21:28, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
That sounds acceptable to me. --Ragestorm (talk · contr) 21:32, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
So are we going to split this article? Something like "Ancients (race)" and "Ancients (demigods)"? Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 13:10, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
No. To be honest the article is fine as it is. --User:Gourra/Sig2 13:15, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
With a little "cleanup" I think it looks okay now. Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 13:22, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
Bringing this up again, is the split still a no go?--SWM2448 22:18, September 27, 2009 (UTC)

Xavius Edit

Should Xavius be here? He's totally evil. Tankingmage (talk) 02:44, September 8, 2014 (UTC)
