Proposed reformat[edit]

I use this table all the time, and it's been a great help. However, I often have a problem where I need some ingredients, say, planar talismans, but I don't know what tier they are or what they look like. I have to go through and hover over each icon to read the tooltip until I stumble upon the correct one. I'd rather just be able to search for the text. This table demonstrates one proposal to address this, in the Tier 1 Arcane section. See discussion. Hoopy Froodle (ContribsMessage) 15:23, April 18, 2018 (EDT)

I see the issue. However, I think adding names to the table would make it too big. How about a new table in the same page with a list of collectables and their tier/type. Then one could start by searching the name of the collectable in the first table and then reading the second table for its farming locations. Faltout (ContribsMessage) 16:27, April 18, 2018 (EDT)
Faltout: I'd personally prefer one large table to two smaller tables that I need to flip between. I suppose it would work if table 1 had a link I could click to get to the correct section of table 2. Would this work for you? Hoopy Froodle (ContribsMessage) 10:42, April 20, 2018 (EDT)
Yes, that's basically what I was proposing :) Faltout (ContribsMessage) 12:38, April 20, 2018 (EDT)

Here you go. Created an anchor at every tier so you can now go directly there: Collectable_farming/U32collectables#Tier4 Now all you need is the first table... which is kinda hard to do and would be best to do via DPL (automatically). If, however, you want to do it manually yourself, here is a starting point:

{| class="wikitable sortable"
!class="unsortable"|Icon
!Name
!Tier
!Type
!Rarity
|-
|[[File:Collectableicon_AmberVial.gif]]
|[[{{FULLPAGENAME}}#Tier1|Amber Vial]]
|1
|Arcane
|data-sort-value="1"|Common
|}
Icon Name Tier Type Rarity
Collectableicon AmberVial.gif Amber Vial 1 Arcane Common

The types of the collectables in the second table could use a little more visibility when scrolling. Faltout (ContribsMessage) 14:04, April 20, 2018 (EDT)
