Paragon entry page - "Third Dawn"???

I started playing UO in March 2003, and as far as I remember, it was early 2005 when Paragons, their chests, and their minor artifacts, were added to UO.

Checking the archive of the old UO Herald official page, has all this introduced in Publish 27, January 2005, two months after the release of Samurai Empire.

The "Third Dawn" Wiki page on UOGuide and the "Paragon" Wiki page, for some reason, are treating Paragons as if they were integral to that release, when in fact, LBR, AoS, and SE came before Paragons were implemented.

It looks like you are talking about the Changes section.

Maybe it should be more clear those additions were after the expansion launched?

It seems to permeate multiple entries relating to Ilshenar - even the "Paragon" page seems to indicate that paragons were introduced in 3D.

For example, from the Paragon page:

" Introduced with Ultima Online: Third Dawn, the enhanced challenge of Paragon creatures necessitated an enhanced reward."

Ilshenar and 3D were positively ancient when paragons were introduced. It's as if someone relatively new to UO went in at some point and either edited a number of Ilshenar pages (as I don't remember the Paragon page making such a claim years ago) to make all the stuff that was added to Ilshenar seem to originate in the original Third Dawn expansion.

After some search I found that Paragons were introduced in 2004 with Publish 27, well after 3rd Dawn. I will correct it, since it helps no one to have incorrect and/or bad information.
