Item Type[edit]

What is the Item Type supposed to be for a decoration? Is Gizmo the correct description? Many are being classified as Consumables for an incorrect reason: when you mouse-over crafted decorations at the scribe station or look at the Deluxe Edition decorations from Fion's vendor list, it says double-click to consume and lists them as consumables. However, when you purchase them, this consumable item is instantly consumed rather than placed in your inventory and then transformed into a decoration, which itself is not a consumable. This behavior is most evident from the crafted decorations. These decorations, once crafted, are instantly consumed, generating a schematic entry in the guild's Processing Queue. Once the schematic is processed, a decoration gets added to guild storage. This stored decoration is no longer a schematic, and the tooltip for it does not talk about it being consumable anymore. Thus, each decoration actually exists as both a consumable and a gizmo-esque object, but neither exist independently in the game and so having two entries for each decoration would be redundant--Kojast (talk) 18:52, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Perhaps, we need a new item type. Neither "consumable" or "gizmo" is really accurate, since the manufactured item, a decoration is "immediately consumed" and never appears in the creator's inventory. There is a similar issue for many things manufactured by the scribe, for example all tactics and improvements, which go directly into the War Chest. ~ 1Maven (talk) 22:02, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
"Double-click to consume." is why I mark them as a "consumable". Also because the item ID (on wiki) is actually the consumable ID. I'm not even sure what the decoration ID is.
Deluxe Wyvern Trophy (v2/items/72687) sold by Fion is a consumable, even though it disappears into the guild decorations storage.
Divinity Lamp (v2/items/70549) on the TP (lowest offer 10g, highest bid at 1g50s) is a consumable.--BryghtShadow (talk) 23:38, 12 December 2015 (UTC)
Speaking as the idiot that put most of them on wiki: I gave them a new classification with a category based on the guild storage categories, mainly because there are so many (and expanding) and you need a way to chop that big list into smaller lists/bits. Where possible I used the ids from the items crafted by the scribe recipes (scribe 400 myself), which technically speaking are consumables, but they are the only items you can actually get a chat link from. —MatHack (talk) 08:13, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

Suggestion: Divide decoration categories by subtype[edit]

Right now we don't have too many decorations, but the list will keep growing and growing, and the current categories will become too large to be navigated properly. My suggestion is to divide each in-game category in new wiki-only subcategories. For example, Decoration/Festivals could be divided between each specific festival. The other categories could be divided by specific decoration types too. For example, Decoration/Architecture could be divided in columns, hedges, flags, etc. You get the idea. I think this would help navigate decorations a lot, letting you see chairs in a single page instead of together with many other decorations the reader might not care about.--Lon-ami (talk) 14:11, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Feedback 2016/08/11[edit]

edited the max decorations for guild hall increased to 2000 per this link as of july 26 2016 -- 08:57, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

Neat, thanks for catching that! —Ventriloquist 11:39, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

Chronological order[edit]

I'd like to be able to see which decorations were recently added. Is that available on the wiki somewhere, please? A list (preferably a gallery) of decorations in chronological order? 17:48, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

Better Organisation[edit]

Can we perhaps brainstorm a better way to arrange the decoration data? At it stands it's super-difficult to browse things and especially to find something that you've seen, but don't know the name of. 21:18, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

How about using a better descriptions of the items, e.g. Wall, Floor, Slope.
These are better because they describe what the player is going to do with the piece, rather than where the piece came from, which is irrelevant, really, because they can see that when they look at the item's page. 16:22, 21 March 2021 (UTC)
