Tables & Lists

Any suggestions on how we should structure this page? Currently it's tied to each individual bartering page, yet it would be nice to have one big list that can be sorted by item names and so on, in case multiple merchants accept similar items for bartering.

You could make one common Bartering table and add the NPC to the leftmost column, potentially the zone as well. The only way to pull pieces in NPC page and pieces in a larger table in Bartering page without duplicating edits is to do advanced templating with DPL and I'm beginning to think it's not worth the complexity.

Personally I would use the same approach I did with the training section: I would summarize "Joeh barters for Basic Fish Scales, Antler, Spiderweb and Femur" and make that into a link to the relevant section of this page. This reduces duplicate info and edits at least until we figure a better way to do it. But also personally I find it confusing as a reader if there are two places to get information, which is why I tend to prefer to have detailed info in one page, and summarized info elsewhere that links to the detailed info. --Gorgonzola (talk) 06:34, 27 October 2014 (CDT)
