Should this Page be Deleted?[edit]

"Ether Runners" are type of Servitors, not a specific named individual. Prior to House of Wolves (DLC2) we only knew of one: Ether Runner of the House of Exile, found during public events on the Moon. However, it now seems that Ether Runners are variants of High Servitors in charge of Ether resupplies among multiple Fallen Houses. Evidence being the WANTED: ETHER RUNNER Grimoire card: "The Ether Runners are the Servitors are in charge of Ether resupplies. Take out one, you put the hurt on multiple Fallen crews." Since Ether Runners are a variant and not a singular entity, this page serves the same purpose as having a separate page for High Servitors, and the like. Unless the intent is to, in fact, have a page for each variant of Servitor, this page is extra and serves no specific purpose. Veritas 20:30, 21 May 2015 (EDT)

I think Ether Runner, like Pilot Servitor, Overmind Minotaur, Wretched Knight, and maybe a few others all constitute a unique subset of enemy for our purposes. In the lore they are described as a generic enemy subtype (i.e. Ether Runner is a special variety of Servitor, more Ether Runners exist out there, same with the other three), but in the game they are technically one-of-a-kind boss-tier enemies. I think they qualify as Ultras in the game's parlance, the top of the enemy food chain. Unless HoW has changed things, you should only ever see Ether Runner as a Public Event boss in Anchor of Light. The other enemies I named only appear as bosses in PoE. Boss/Ultra enemies at least are important enough that they deserve individual pages, generic name or no.MorningWalker (talk) 00:09, 22 May 2015 (EDT)
Fair enough. I see your point. I will continue with this knowledge. Veritas 00:26, 22 May 2015 (EDT)
