Merging with Fomor. Can't find a compelling enough reason to keep them separate. Several mobs use both Fomor and Shadow abilities, and even the FFXI wiki seems divided on the subject.
Also, referring to them as Shadows, since Shadows came first.EDIT: you don't know tedious until you've fixed like 90 double redirects in a row
The differences between fomor and shadows Edit
Here are quotes from the FFXIcyclopedia talk page for shadows:
I disagree with the move of Shadows to the Fomor page. I get what you're sayin about other like mobs being combined, but these are different. In that Fomor have a shared hate like Tonberrys and Apkallu, whereas Shadows do not. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Krueglenuts (talk • contribs).
Resolution: Keep as is - Shadows are a different class of mob and Fomors cannot teach Dimensional Death. The fomors in the near east and the CoP areas share all the same TP moves- and neither group can teach this blue magic. There is enough to distinguish them to keep them seperated. If anything, fomors are a subset of shadows, since the shadows existed first. Finally, the two categories are treated as seperate in Pankration- Shadows can be used, and Fomors cannot.

Going to work on reestablishing the Fomor page, and dedicate this page to Shadows only. The only similarities are that Fomors and Shadows both have black skin and are undead, and some Fomor can be Elvaan, which makes them look similar to Shadows. --22.214.171.124 19:58, July 26, 2010 (UTC)
