Re-Usable items

  • I was wondering how many items in the game there are like the cheap toaster, sewing kit, eternal car battery, and Oscus's neverending soda that are usable a certain amount of times a day that aren't used up while still providing a benefit, and i think a category of such items would be rather useful. Kingskybomber14 (talk) 22:32, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
  • A category would not be hard to add, but maybe this page already has what you're looking for? --Fig bucket (talk) 22:46, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Then maybe a dailies category? That page full of dailies seems rather dense, and i think that the categories format would be easier to read and use, and especially for newbies, that giant table would look rather imposing. Kingskybomber14 (talk) 23:15, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

One-time

  • being a bit of a diamond, i'd like there to be a "one per ascension" category, for things like the the aerated diving helmet and the pig-iron bracers. whether this includes the Crown of the Goblin King and its like, which you can only get one of in each ascension but you can buy as many of as you can afford in the mall i'm not too particular about, a matter for discussion perhaps.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Evilkolbot (talkcontribs)
    • I had thought Ascension has that list, but apparently not. Most of these items will be quest rewards, but I can including things like silver shrimp forks on the list.--Foggy 13:04, 24 October 2009 (UTC)
      • many thanks. could have sworn i'd signed it. damn. --Evilkolbot 22:48, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Stealability

This is more of a project request, I guess. It would be nice to have line on each item page listing whether or not that item can be stolen in pvp. --Volante 11:14, 28 August 2006 (CDT)

  • Wouldn't this be the same as the already-existing field "Cannot be traded"? Or are there tradeable items that cannot be stolen and/or untradeable items that can be stolen? --Quietust 11:24, 28 August 2006 (CDT)
  • Aren't Mr. A's steal-immune? I remember reading something about that in one of the pvp guides. I'll try to find the reference.--Volante 12:14, 28 August 2006 (CDT)
"A note from Obfusjake (#174449): As a side note, here's a list of rares that I have personally confirmed stealable or not:
Unstealable: Crimbo stockings, small crimbo pressies, bows and bow gear, imitation nice watch, dredls, Tiny Plastic Sword, skewered fruits, and its resultant drinks, Radio gear, radio button candies, Mafia raffle items, Mr. Accessories and all Mr. Store items, N.O. Beer
Stealable: spectral pickles, ghost pickles on a stick, gasmask, demonskin trousers, pail, gnollish nunchaku, red minotaur, children's meals of the damned, hemp and newbiesport backpacks, one million meat pancakes, any recurring holiday items (oyster eggs, halloween candy)"

--Volante 12:21, 28 August 2006 (CDT)

A simple guide for starting off

You know, for those poor people who have not ever played KOl before, or are just starting off.

  • A short, succinct, clearly-written beginner's guide is something the wiki probably should have. Unless it already exists and I just can't find it. I think such a guide would be useful for players in their first few days with the game to explain some of KoL's important but less obvious features. --Prestige 19:51, 25 January 2008 (CST)
    • I could've sworn there was such a guide on the Wiki... The Help Forum FAQ happens to be orphaned and could probably be revamped to add relevant information. --Bagatelle 11:40, 26 January 2008 (CST)

Locations by Average Meat Drops

A list of locations by average meat drops from both combat and non-combat(listed in different collums on the same page) would be useful to the average player.Sith Lord 13 21:01, 25 January 2008 (CST)

Lag

Everyone needs a page on lag.--Gigighost 21:11, 4 February 2008 (CST)

Sortable Pages

It would be very useful to take much of the information on the wiki, place it in differnet databases, and allow it to be sorted/searchable. For instance a page on Monsters with fields 'Monster' 'Hp' 'High Meat Drop' 'Low Meat Drop' 'Average Meat Drop' 'Percent Item Drop' 'Special Skills'. I guess this would be similar to pages such as "Equipment (by power)" except that it would be sortable rather than a static table. --DeviousDave 3:35, 14 February 2008 (PST)

Common metaphors

A page on the common metaphores for effect. i.e. dancing = more items. Thinking of water equals MP regen. And so on. (unsigned)

I've added a first draft of such a page. Have at it.--Foggy 15:00, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Up to date ascension video

A new video of a reasonably quick ascension would be nice. I've watched the one on ColdFront (I think it was on there) and it was very, very interesting so an up to date one would be awesome. If this is not feasible, a written version would be brilliant. The one on here was also really interesting, but again, is quite out of date, both are from before NS-13. --Mr Boombastic 12:10, 31 May 2008 (CDT)

Sauceror spell sauces

So, it has come to my attention that all damaging sauceror combat spells all randomly select from the same list of sauces. Could we create a tag and template, a la {{part}} and {{muscle}}, that would encompass these? Then we could have the skill pages just invoke this template, which links them back to Sauceror#Spell Sauces, which contains the master list. This'd cut out a lot of duplicated information across pages. --Flargen 09:10, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

  • You can use {{preposition}} as a guide to accomplish much the same thing. That template is also a good example of why I hate trying to program wiki templates. --BagatelleT

/C 03:34, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

    • Looks pretty straightforward. I'll see what I can do with it when I get the time. --Flargen 04:38, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Maximizing: Familiar Experience Gain

One thing I found missing from the wiki is a page like the ones for maximizing item or meat drops, or moxie, that shows how to maximize familiar experience gain per combat. Maybe one could be created, listing all the effects and items that raise familiar experience quickly? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rayne Summers (talkcontribs) on 05:36, 26 January 2009

Aftercore

I'd like to see an "Aftercore" general page, which would mostly be a directory of things generally oriented toward the post level 13-15 adventuring (I'm considering starting it myself, as a stub if nothing else). It would include links to information on the current "Aftercore" locations, including The Sea, Hobopolis, the Slime Tube, El Vibrato, and Fernswarthy's Basement, and perhaps a short introduction to the idea of "Aftercore" as it appears in discussion forums. Worthwhile idea?--Maklodes 00:46, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Done--Foggy 14:14, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Meat from Monsters by Location

I think that, much as monster levels are organized in "Safe Adventuring" and related pages, a "meat from monsters" page along similar lines would be good. Perhaps three categories -- meat by individual monsters (i.e., how much from guy with a pitchfork and his wife, how much from a cubist bull, etc), average meat by location without "on the trail" available (i.e., how much from adventuring in the gallery in general), and average meat by location with on the trail on (i.e., how much from adventuring in the gallery when on the trail for cubist bulls).--Maklodes 00:46, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

NS15

Currently there is no article about NS15. In the NS13 article, it is mentioned that this is to be the ultimate realization of the game. However, they said on the radio show that NS15 is not going to happen (unless they change their mind maybe ;-), so I think either we should have an article covering NS15, the original plan and how it got changed, or at least fix the NS13 article to reflect that NS15 is currently not going to be implemented. --Mr Crac 11:36, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

  • i'd say the NS13 article should be changed, since a page about something that's not going to happen seems perverse. --Evilkolbot 11:39, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
  • i agree. besides, i say that when NS15 does happen, we should just make a seperate page for it. --Forsak3n1 12:03, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Maximizing Damage

How about a "Dressing for Success" guide to maximizing bonus damage, regardless of damage type? I suppose this could be accomplished mostly by merging the 5 pages on Maximizing <element> damage, plus any pages on bonus weapon damage & slime damage. This would be wonderful for scaling monsters like the basement, Crimbo elves, etc. I'm not sure how to create such pages, but I may just give it a shot here in a moment...

2-handed clubs

For people who want a list of them to use them with TS and LTS as a Seal Clubber.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Mojotech (talkcontribs)

  • Eh, I might throw something together tomorrow if I get a chance. The thing is, there's no more than 15 or so, and that's counting stuff like custom or special items. When you kind of pare it down a bit, for most people, it's probably going to end up being the 5 seal clubber clubs + a few paddles. Probably still worth a page, it's an idea that should probably be cross-referenced.--Toffile 07:29, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
  • One could also go to Weapons (by power), then click on the appropriate column header to sort by "Weapon Type", and scoll down to where 2-handed clubs start. And yeah, there are only like 10 or so. --JRSiebz (|§|) 07:36, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Squishables

An article about the current Squishables available, what they do, and in turn link to a page where all of the Squishables are listed in order of release, and what they squish into by step. --Ravenous Muffin 02:56, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

List of Musician References, etc.

This game is so eclectic in its choice of references - that's one of the reasons I adore it. I'd love to see some pages put up on the wiki that allow users to browse through all the references of a certain type (e.g., all the musicians and bands, all the books, all the foods, all the internet culture notes...). It would be particularly useful to me if I could read a page that had links to the various musicians referenced; say what you will about the Rock Band and Guitar Hero games, they've opened up a whole new world of classic rock music to me, and I'm thoroughly enjoying the chance to explore musicians I've never heard of before. (I finally get the Rolling Stones references!) A list of references arranged by type would be very useful. --Kilyle 19:36, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

  • That would be a huge page, not to mention ridiculously unweildy. Luckily, The Garden of Earthly Delights has a site that does exactly what you're looking for!--TechSmurf 20:10, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
    • Yeah, but it is the sort of thing Categories can do easily, if someone wanted to take make that effort. I believe I proposed a TMBG category once. --Club (#66669) (Talk) 19:08, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
      • I don't generally have problems with new categories, as long as they'd have a decent number of pages in them to be warranted. Since all of our categories are more-or-less strictly related to KoL from an internal perspective, I'm slightly resistant to expanding it out, but if there are others who'd like this sort of thing I don't see how there's much harm. Well, other than that there'd be a LOT of edits done to add the category to all of the relevant and already-existing pages. Further subdividing past just "Music References" would probably be a bit much, even though you could probably have a fairly robust number of articles in the subdivisions. --Flargen 19:23, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
        1. with the possible exception of TMBG, very few things would have enough entries to warrant a category.
        2. this tells us that most references are bollocks anyway.
        3. (which is 1+2) means that i'm against such categories. any work that would be dpne here to implement them would be better spent there updating that. --Evilkolbot 20:02, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Well, awesome! That page is just the sort of thing I wanted. Is there a fairly obvious mention of it somewhere on this wiki? because I'm thinking I'm not the only one who'd be interested in this sort of cross-referenced references. --Kilyle 07:01, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Asymmetric Employees/Members

There are articles in this wiki about Jick, Mr Skullhead, Riff, Xylinia, and Xenophobe. What about Hotstuff and CDMoyer? Since they are employed by Asymmetric in one way or another, should there not be articles about them too? And what about the Multi Czar (I am not certain if he is actually a human being or rather an account operated by someone else.) --Mr Crac 23:47, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Category: Skill-Granting Items

Basically, I'd like a category that collects things like Hodgman's journal 3 and Inigo's Incantation of Inspiration. If possible, it could stand to be split into Skills that are automatically HCPermed and skills that need to be permed, but that's probably a bit too much. --Unnatural20 22:56, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

  • We already have a similar page here.--Toffile 00:45, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Timeline of Events

I've looked for such a page, but without much effort. Though there are pages about White Wednesday, The Comet, etc. However, this page would just be a listing of events on KoL history (in-game events, rather than the event updates on the KoL main page). Having started playaing rather recently, I would be interested in having a page that quickly summarizes events that happened before I came about. For the same reason, I am not the guy to create this page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Deadlyangel2011 (talkcontribs) on 10:58, 2010 May 25

  • Is the History of Loathing not exactly this? Its a bit cumbersome to dig through, but it is there. Also, please sign your posts. --WarrantyVoid 18:50, 25 May 2010 (UTC)
    • Also Category:History. Not chronologically ordered, but should give you all the historical events. --Flargen 00:39, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Fancy foods/ingredients

I'd like to see a list of all the Fancy ingredients on a single page. --Ceredwin 16:59, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Memory of a Base Pair table

How about a page with a table of what "Memory of a..." items combine into what "Memory of a ... base pair" items and what they do? I don't really know how to make new pages, or I'd do it myself. --Mustard 15:25, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Fernswarthy

I think there should be a page about Fernswarthy. HolyCow1234 04:07, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

  • Could you be more specific? Are you talking about the basement?----Icon315♕ (|) 04:09, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
    • I think there should be an article that lists out all the items and locations related to Fernswarthy, as well as some information about him. Like the articles on Boris, Jarlsberg and Sneaky Pete. HolyCow1234 07:06, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
      • Ah, so a disambiguation. That seems reasonable. --Flargen 07:13, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Unarmed Accessories

I've created a template for the new accessories that only activate when you are unarmed and you can only equip one of. I don't know how to create a page here any more, so I've put it here: http://kol.coldfront.net/thekolwiki/index.php?title=Template:Test&oldid=481516 --Nossidge 21:29, 16 September 2011 (CEST)

Kittycore

A Bad Moon strategy guide that takes the Black Cat into account. The existing guide - Bad Moon Strategy - is very good, except that, for instance, it spends time (and adventures) on acquiring familiars that are unavailable to players in kittycore. The Black Cat changes the number of adventures likely to be necessary to acquire certain items, and raises questions about certain strategies: for instance, is using Bounty Hunter items to collect limes time/cost effective, given that kitty is likely to bat a significant number of items away; farming spices in the Spooky Forest and enchanted beans in the Bat Hole to make insanely spicy enchanted bean burritos *might* be a better way to obtain awesome-level food. --Khari 18:52, 11 June 2012 (CEST)

Monster Manuel drops

Please add some sort of indicator/link for monster pages with Monster Manuel drops, like you do with item indicators for monsters that have Bounty Hunter drops ... AvangionQ 11:41, 25 November 2012 (CET)

Microplushies

    • I think yours is better, though. Want me to work on a "Microplushies" Page? --Cannonfire40 14:39, 3 December 2012 (CET)
      • Sure! Check the Pokemann page and lift the code from there, and just change it to match the Microplushies. Danke! ~Erich t/c 14:43, 3 December 2012 (CET)

Well done! 8^) ~Erich t/c 15:31, 3 December 2012 (CET)

i love you dad

  • Dad Sea Monkee is not an easy fight. even spoonfed (thanks, cannon) it took me seven attempts. the first couple i wasn't thinking clearly or understanding what i was reading. (i know, i'll buff up massively! i know, i'll boost spell damage! i know, i'll boost elem resist!) perhaps there should be a Dad Sea Monkee/Strategy page to give some clear advice and discuss why mostly he does damage of 11% of HP except when he doesn't. it should be a separate page and the links to it be clearly labelled spoilers in case someone is inspired to give it a shot unspoiled. --Evilkolbot (talk) 21:42, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
    • The page would consist of three sentences: "Use the spreadsheet.", "Attack with appropriate Hobopolis 120 MP spell.", and "Have enough MP to go 10 rounds." It's not like you can even discuss what equipment to wear, you're forced to use 6 of the 9 equipment slots. 7 if you don't feel like burning a breathing potion per fight. You can't boost anything else up, the game removes effects in a prior adventure. You're just so limited that it basically boils down to figuring out what spell to cast on him during what round. I can't say that it's really worth another page, short of Cannon detailing the elemental immunity mechanic as excruciatingly as possible. All of the other stuff is pretty much germane and inline with other boss pages.--Toffile (talk) 21:01, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Equipment name lengths

It would be handy to have a page listing equipment sorted by name length to help with the pvp verbosity demonstration contest. If not a list, perhaps a 'maximize your X' style page. --Volante (talk) 20:20, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

  • It already exists. Take pants, for instance. You can sort by Char Length in the header. Just repeat with other equipment slots. ~Erich t/c 20:37, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Huh, except for weapons, apparently. That should be added in. ~Erich t/c 20:40, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
    • One-handed weapons can be sorted by length. Apparently nobody cared enough to do it for the two-handed weapons, which are always suboptimal in PvP (and pretty much every other game context). --Greycat (talk) 16:15, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Effects from consumables

  • If you're trying to maximize ML for Slimetube, or +item for a Hobopolis bosskill, or some such, then you can use all the potions you can obtain/afford, but you have limited capacity for food, booze and spleen. Would anyone ever consult a page which summarized all the effects which result from consuming food, beverage, booze or spleen items? If I pulled together a list of consumables and their effects, would others help/correct with formatting? - Riley37

robin flan

I figured out how to make a robin flan ingame. You cook a Gnollish pie tin with a Robin egg to get the item. I'd like to set up the wiki page, if possible!
