List of all consumables sold by vendors providing bundles/skills[edit]

Thinking about creating a one-off list of all consumables possibly with SMW/DPL, and I'm wondering about how we should be documenting consumables providing bundles in the first place. Some of the consumable item pages have skillbars, which I would only really expect to find on bundle object pages. e.g. Bone (consumable) lists skills but the skills are really provided by Bone (bundle).

| uses = Template:Environmental skill table row
| category = Consumables
| ordermethod = title

→ 147 results. Should these be using separate object pages [containing the documentation for skills provided] in each instance?

Is having a list of consumables readily available following the stance that Arena Net has made regarding playing with inventory open?[edit]

First of all, I would like to point out that I personally do think that this article could be very helpful for the newer players and players looking to get consumables to smoothen out their runs in dungeons and fractals. However, I believe that Arena Net has stated that they dislike the idea that this game is played with an open inventory. To combat people playing with their inventories open, they have already gone out of their way to disable the usage of certain consumables (most notable the patch on October 27, 2020) when they deleted the consumables that were really neatly listed on (as seen here). Due to the fact that ArenaNet has, on multiple occasions, implied that the usage of any inventory items during instanced content is against their philosophy, I have to ask whether this page should or should not be on the wiki. You could argue that it does not reflect the opinion of ArenaNet and therefore should not be endorsed on the wiki.

Whilst it is true that ANet developers haven't tried to disguise their hate for people defeating their "hard content" with various spades, toy swords, peg legs stolen from cripples and enough planks to build a bridge from NA to EU... however the items exist ingame and since this list might be convenient to someone, I think it's ok to list them here on the wiki.
If Anet actually bothered to do a search on the wiki they could find all the offending items causing CC effects in less than half an hour. This page would actually make their job easier too. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 00:27, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
