Cost of filled Soulgem[edit]

Does anyone know how the price of a filled soulgem is calculated? - 22:56, 19 December 2008 (EST)

I believe it is just soul size × value of empty gem. Thus, a Golden Saint (soul: 400) in a Grand Soul Gem (value: 200) is worth 80000 gold. For souls that are small enough to fit in smaller soul gems, you definitely get a different value depending on which gem you use. (And of course any soul in Azura's Star is worth a lot more, but that's a real waste unless you can steal it back afterwards.) --TheRealLurlock Talk 23:27, 19 December 2008 (EST)

Almalexia's Soul[edit]

How come Almalexia's soul is not listed here? Is it because it is Almalexia is part of an expansion of something? Can you please add Almalexia to the list? Thanks.

Rofl sorry I just saw the intro paragraph... But at least you should add a note for the biggest soul in the game?— Unsigned comment by (talk) on 15 Ferbuary 2010

There are already two notes about her having the greatest soul strength, here and here. --S'drassa T2M 02:28, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
So what good does that do someone looking for soul sizes? It's like saying a word wasn't included in Webster's Dictionary because it was defined somewhere else... Is the page uneditable? I can't find a way to add hers. King Mango (talk) 23:39, 11 November 2013 (GMT)
Soul size and soul strength is the same thing. We aren't going to list every possible way to say something just so that someone can find it easier. Jeancey (talk) 23:44, 11 November 2013 (GMT)
You clearly don't understand the point. And if you want me to speak to you with respect don't use hyperbole on me. New users like me are perhaps accustomed to the Skyrim convetion of placing all information on one page and using superscript to indicate expansions. That is the correct and organized way of serving the desired information.King Mango (talk) 23:48, 11 November 2013 (GMT)
Dragonborn info is on a separate page than skyrim info, just as Tribunal information (about Almalexia's soul) is on a separate page from Morrowind information. It is completely consistent. We organize information using namespaces if it is warranted. In this case, since the namespace exists, we use it. Someone who has the base game doesn't want to have to sort through the expansions to find what they are looking for, just as someone who is playing through the tribunal quests doesn't want to have to sort through the base game info to find what they need. Jeancey (talk) 23:54, 11 November 2013 (GMT)
Yes quest info is on different pages. But ingredients, weapons, spells, souls, creatuers and all manner of items are all listed together with a superscript of DB for Dragonborn, DG for Dawnguard, and HF for Hearthfire. This is the convention I refer to. King Mango (talk) 00:20, 12 November 2013 (GMT)
Creatures, Weapons, and most items are separate when there are separate namespaces. DG and HF do not have separate namespaces, so all their info is integrated with Skyrims. But Ingredients, Spells, Creatures, among others, all have separate pages in the Dragonborn namespace. Jeancey (talk) 00:24, 12 November 2013 (GMT)

() A very small amount of Dragonborn pages were merged with Skyrim pages while retaining the original Dragonborn pages. This is an exception, not a norm, and followed a specific discussion. However, because Dawnguard and Hearthfire do not have their own namespaces, it is the norm for their data to be listed on Skyrim pages. Vely►t►e 00:31, 12 November 2013 (GMT)

Dagoth Velos[edit]

Dagoth Velos is mentioned twice, with different values for his soul (280 and 300). On the Ash Creatures page yet another strength is mentioned (220). Which one is correct?
