Where's the expertise recipes? Are they on here? Or just out of date or something?


My search-fu failed to find it here.

New multi-use recipes/Obsolete recipes

(Discussion moved/copied from User_talk:Rubyctook#New multi-output recipes)

Since I've been (slowly) working on the Tailor index, which still needs a fair amount of work, I've started to change the indexes to reflect the new multi-output recipes. I see that you're starting to do the same with the Metalsmith index, and that you deleted the old 'Elven xx', 'Dwarf-make xx' recipes. I was going to ask what to do with the parallel tailor recipes, but if it's okay to delete them, I'll do so. My remaining question is about some of the items themselves that can no longer be crafted, but at least for the next few weeks, will be largely prevalent in-game. (i.e. I'm wearing a Resplendent Robe of Lothlorien, but now the recipe is multi-output and yields xx Resplendent Robe of Lothlorien) When the recipes that created them are deleted and they're removed from the index, should they be deleted as well or marked (Old)? If you feel this belongs on a different discussion page, feel free to move it. Apologies, it's late and I hope that was sufficiently coherent. Rubyctook 03:45, 22 March 2011 (EDT)

When I've redone jeweller recipes & outputs, I've not kept the older item stats, maybe I should have kept them, but I figured if someone wants to come see the outputs of a recipe here, it's for the newest content. Maybe a == Older Stats == section could be added... Maybe move the subject on Talk:Master Recipe Index and see if there is any other opinions? --Goingbald 09:32, 22 March 2011 (EDT)
Sticking my nose in where I'm not invited again - this has come up a couple of times about what to do with "old" or "updated" or "outdated" content - in most cases it just gets scrapped outright, but there are times when it might be worthwhile to keep things for archival purposes. I'm gonna forum-post about this because it's probably bigger than any one project (quests, crafting, items, etc) and maybe we'll get some feedback. Please do post your thoughts! :) Sethladan 21:42, 22 March 2011 (EDT)
