Should this page be renamed to the purifier? Kimera 757 (talk) 12:00, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

I'm not sure. At least in Ghost the Vindicator was actually named, whilst for SC2 all we have is concept art, not to mention that as far as I can tell, all the player units for SC2 have been listed and it's just now a matter of refining them.

For now, I'd recomend leaving it as the Vindicator, unless the purifier turns up as a unit in SC2, player controlled or otherwise (could be a campaign only NPC). If it functions differently from the Vindicator, we can create a seperate article. If it's a case of Blizzard basing it directly on the Vindicator, it seems best to rename the article and put both versions in it.--Hawki 12:25, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

There's more info now. The purifier and vindicator are just different names for the same thing, so I'll just move the article. Kimera 757 (talk) 22:56, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

I am not too sure that it should be considered a rename. Maybe it was renamed into ``soul hunter`` and then the name was reverted after it was removed from SC2. -Capefeather 03:58, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

But wouldn't that mean the proper name is purifier anyway? Blizzard didn't explicitly say it was called purifier before the recent change, so I don't think we can really say it was changed from purifier to soul hunter back to purifier. Kimera 757 (talk) 23:03, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Expansive Term Edit

The term purifier means many things, and most people will probably be searching for the purifier robots. I think the unit page should be moved to purifier (unit), and the term "purifier" either refer to the robots or be the disambig page. Thoughts?

Good point. I'm all for this page becoming a "purifier (unit)" page. I'm more inclined to making "purifier" a de facto disambig page though as there's still the purifier mothership page (which I think would also be the primary topic of many searches) and I'm not sure to what extent the purifiers will be their own race (e.g. will they form the third unit variant, or give the excuse for a unit or two?).--Hawki (talk) 22:59, November 29, 2014 (UTC)
