Everquest I - Disarm skillFollow

There is no link for it, not sure if any other skills are searchable with your search tool either. If they are, the search tool is not working properly.

Other suggestion:

Make the search engine work so that it will search for certain strings typed into the search box, like the first 3 letters or numbers. People usually type them right = it narrows down the articles you list in the search result to 1/1000 (numbers) or 1/19683 (letters).

It MUST work so that it searches for the strings in the middle of words too. It is useless otherwise.

http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/skills.html doesn't have it. No one has a done a wiki page specifically for it, but you there is mention of it on several wiki pages, including the Rogue and Warrior under skills they get. See http://everquest.allakhazam.com/search.html?q=disarm#Wiki and the Wiki tab.

If you have a specific question about disarm or any EQ1 topic that I can help with, then I and many others are willing to answer it for you. Since I don't work at Zam, can't really help with the search tool. In my opinion, it works pretty good as long as you know basically what you are searching for, as the results you want often appear before you finishing typing. But as you said, it does need work searching for partial strings in the middle of words. That could have been intentional though to cut down on processing time.

Thank you, sir!

My original idea was to post some data & tricks how to train Disarm skill, but to my surprise Google gave better links than Allakhazam's own search engine so I decided to point that out first. The problem is quite big: All skills & AA should be searchable from the page by using the correct name. If they don't exist the information will be scattered around and will be poorly indexed. --- The coding itself is very simple, the programmer just has to know a little something about 'logical operators' and how the illogical users like to use them :)

Oh, almost forgot:

Disarm from 200 to 503 at lvl 100:

- Go to Kurn's Tower, find a skelly from some quiet corner, with a stick in it's hand, go next to it.
- Wait for respawn, this time wielding something non-damgaging so that riposte damage doesn't kill it.
- Gate back to guild lobby to buy some food, looks like this will take 18 hours, since the chance of a skillup is around 3% each try.
- 6480 attempts later, get a life - or buy some Bandages and max Bind Wound like I did!
