  • You may have already known it, but in case, I give you a tip. You can update faster in one turn with AWB by uploading all the weapons and equipments pages from the weapons and equipments categories, then writing in the "Find and replace" > "Normal setting" option each old shop link with brackets per line with each of their corresponding new shop link with brackets, for example:

    line                      old                                new
    line 1: [[Armour Shop (Frontier Village)]]  [[Frontier Village Armour Shop]]
    line 2: [[Weapon Shop (Frontier Village)]]  [[Frontier Village Weapon Shop]]
    line 3: [[Shop 2]] [[Colony 6 Shop 2]]
    ...
    

    Concerning any alternative link names, you can add any extra lines such as:

    line                      old                                new
    [[Armour Shop (Frontier Village)|Armour Shop]] [[Frontier Village Armour Shop]]
    [[Weapon Shop (Frontier Village)|Weapon Shop]] [[Frontier Village Weapon Shop]]
    

    Nevertheless, I cannot state it is the best method, you may have a more efficient method for you, no one manages in the same way, a method can be preferred or not depending on people.

    • You're welcome.

      It is also a good idea shared by UB about using the "What Links Here" tip if you are not sure too or if you want to foresee any selections and changes that AWB will apply.

    • Glad to be of assistance.

      I agree AWB is really helpful. I suspect it becomes even more powerful for someone with a full understanding of regular expressions.

      Oh, one last suggestion for now. Under the Options menu, the 5th item down is "Follow redirects". I strongly recommend unchecking that option. Unchecking it will save a lot of time, especially if you set our page selection to all pages on the wiki.

  • Hi Kumorifox. From some of the equipment pages, you have removed Berserk Ardun (SE) drop since it appears before Riki joins the party, right? I should update its page even though the dropped items are provided in the JCE.

  • Hi Kumorifox. I've seen that you sometimes add the "xc1 stub" and "incomplete" although you seem to rather complete the page, meaning that... it is not complete! Did I mistake when I sometimes added the "xc1 stub" and "incomplete" to some pages you had just updated, thinking that you had completed them? In this case, I will not continue to "fix" it. Thanks.

    • Hi WA. I added those tags because, while the source list is completed, there are other things missing, such as price or image, from the infobox. I don't know which image goes with which weapon, and I'm not certain on prices, so I decided to mark those as stub and incomplete just in case.

        Loading editor
    • You're right! Perfect! Indeed, there are the text, the image and even the section for "appearance".

  • Hi,

    Speed III Booster name
    I just wanted to point out that Speed III Booster is the correct name as it appears in the game. As stated in a note on that page, the game uses the singular form "Booster" instead of "Boosters" for this armour.

  • Hi Kumorifox, just to know, will you put the disambiguated links for the few concerned enemies when you update item pages? In this case, I can leave the incomplete item pages.

    • Hi WA. I include enemy sources, shops, trades, and quests, including Collectopaedia rewards. Aside from High Entia doors and similar treasure chests in Prison Island, I don't think there are other sources, but please correct me if I'm wrong. I get the enemy drop data from the JCE, the rest from the wiki.

    • Your work is great! (Long, hard, but so needful!) Don't worry, I wanted to be sure before removing the "xc1 stub" or "incomplete" categories. Also, don't worry for the possible missing disambiguation links, it is not a problem for me to fix it a posteriori.

  • I'm curious where you got the info that the Jack Daggers have 3 slots.

    I checked the JCE and it says 2 slots in both silver and gold chests.

      Loading editor
    • My mistake, I was under the assumption that the gold chest item would be higher quality, so it would make more sense to have the item with 3 slots. Therefore, I assumed the 2 slot gold chest item was a typo. I reverted the edit.

      What is the JCE, actually? I'll refer to that in future before making such edits.

    • Read the JCE FAQ.

    • Thank you :-)

    • Ahh, thanks KF.

      That is a weird situation with the drops for that enemy, but since those gold chest drops are only available by using Yoink, I can imagine that being done on purpose to increase the chances of a player getting the 2 slot version. Or maybe it was a typo on the part of the game designers.

      There are other quirks and weirdness in the drop tables too. One recent example I ran across is that Daksha Pods drop two materials, with one of them having a 100% drop rate. My in-game testing supports this as being correct, but it looks odd on the wiki page.

  • Hi Kumorifox,

    I just wanted to thank you for the help with the categorization of Materials under w:c:xenoblade:Category:Quest Materials. Soon I will fix the missing materials, which should now be listed as Reconstruction Items.

  • Hi Kumorifox, I see you're adding lots of sell prices to item pages, good! I wanted to ask if you're taking Riki's "Buy Stuff!" skill into account, because it raises the sell price by 20%. If you have learned that skill, pay attention to this. Keep up the good work!

      Loading editor
    • Hi Pr. I am indeed taking care of this. I'm not sure about collectables though, since their sell prices are odd and cannot be divided by 6 to get the factor out. Does the Buy Stuff! skill affect materials only?

        Loading editor
    • The skill affects all items, weapons, armour, crystals, collectables and so on. I see what you mean when the price is odd, for example: item with Buy Stuff sells at 2095 G. 2095 divided by 6 and multiplied by 5 is 1745.83333. When this happens, I do the opposite calculation: suppose the item is 1745 G. 1745 x 6 / 5 = 2094. And 1746 x 6 / 5 = 2095.2. I assume the game discards the decimal part of the result, in this case 1746 is the correct "raw" price.

        Loading editor
    • Ah, I see. I didn't take that into account. I'm almost at game+ so I can check them. For the meantime, then, I'll hold off on collectable prices and stick with materials.

  • Hey, thanks for making those shop pages. Do you think you could do the rest eventually? It would be fantastic for the Wanted Pages to be empty, not to mention another item crossed off my To-Do List...
