but on for a short time on XII it only dropped for males,
before reverting back to its original setting.
  1. if this is true, please change the other two items accordingly.
  2. i find this hard to believe, though. "a short time" was at least fifteen hours, since i was playing at 6pm uk time and still didn't get any beads. are you sure you're not confusing this with the lack of the change from cinco de pete which was corrected pretty sharpish? --Evilkolbot 06:18, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

Zelda reference

I just had an epiphany. The colors of beads match up to the three goddesses in the Zelda universe, and the stats that they increase match up to what the respective goddess is goddess of.

  • Blue beads increase Mysticality. Blue is the color of Nayru, who is the goddess of wisdom. Mysticality = wisdom.
  • Green beads increase Moxie. Green is color of Farore, who is the goddess of courage. Moxie = courage.
  • Red beads increase Muscle. Red is the color of Din, who is the goddess of power. Muscle = power.

There are so many colors Jick could have picked, and he chose those three, and in that order. It's got to be deliberate. Shall I put the references in, or do people disagree with my epiphany? PenguinofDeath 01:54, 12 March 2012 (CET)

Primary colors. --Flargen 11:00, 12 March 2012 (CET)
I considered that, but they fit too well. Given all the other similarly trivial references in the game, shouldn't we at least have "The color of the beads and their effect may be a reference to the Legend of Zelda games, in which X is the goddess of Y, and her color is Z." with a different X,Y,Z for each page?

  • References should be direct and unambiguous. As a general rule, any time you find yourself wanting to write a reference that "may be", "might", "could be", etc., it is not a reference. --Fig bucket 13:01, 12 March 2012 (CET)
