Art[edit source]

This card is categorized only as Human art, even though there are some dwarves in the background and it's listed in Dwarf#Dwarf_art. There's also a Draenei on the left. -- Karol007 (talk) 22:39, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Eventually I'll get round to making the art pages self-organising, which will fix any discrepancies one way or the other.
Regarding the missing races, it's simply a matter of judgement. When we have a primary character like the human here, it's clear they should be tagged; while some cards have just a hand or leg of a secondary race, and it clearly doesn't seem worth citing that card as an example of that race's art. Smaller background characters fall somewhere in the middle of this spectrum. I don't know of any comprehensive rationale for inclusion or exclusion, although if we really wanted to we could try to thrash one out (that would be better suited to something like Talk:Card art, though).
As a general rule I try to imagine the reaction of someone reading through e.g., Dwarf art. In the case of a card like this, I tend to think the initial reaction would be confusion (since the main character is human, not dwarven), possibly followed a second or two later by noticing the dwarf in the background, followed then by either a dissatisfied acceptance or outright rejection of the inclusion. But that's just my attempt to predict such things! -- Taohinton (talk) 19:14, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
Toshley is categorized also as Beast art, even though you can't really tell by looking at the card alone, only the full art. -- Karol007 (talk) 14:14, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
Agreed, Toshley is definitely the weakest card on Beast art. Arguably it should be delisted; like I say, it's a matter of judgement. -- Taohinton (talk) 17:34, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
Couldn't this card be included in the Blood elf art article? There is a high elf to the right of the image.--Adûnâi (talk) 18:18, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
As it stands the card belongs to Aurius Rivendare. I don't know if you should count others. (Shammiesgun (talk) 18:27, 5 August 2015 (UTC))
Cards should only be tagged for art elements visible on the card itself. Full art often shows all sorts of details, but they're not visible in-game, so they don't make any sense for art tags (you wouldn't even be able to see the blood elf in question on Blood elf art).
I've added the info about Aurius, although it's worth noting it's in the Trivia section rather than Lore, because the card isn't actually about Aurius - they've just picked that art to depict the action/ability/event the card embodies. -- Taohinton (talk) 22:00, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
