So instead of going on like multiple pages or having one page with it, I'll just make this thread. So I'm not sure or anything, but does each version of FFI-VI have descriptions for each piece of equipment? And are they all different from one another? If so, how will we present these in the equipment tables?EDIT - Scratch just equipment, what for everything that's possibly different with descriptions in each versions (such as abilities and such)? Sure, some things like spells probably don't need these but...
It's not exactly consistent.
Personally I think the whole "below stats" is a good idea, with effect listed seperately, since descriptions usually don't give the full story to the effect.
I'll have to work on FFI and II since when I put those in I didn't have EVERYTHING in the game in my save files. I just got what I had and put them in the text document for here to get started with. We do need to standardize these lists on this particular ground though. I do like it below stats myself, though setting up as such is a bit of a pain, especially if effects can't fit into a separate column or something.
So, after spending all day putting in all of the text that I had for like 4 games for descriptions, finally got that done. However, there still lies a few missing for equipment from FFI and II GBA. I'll get those, but I need someone to confirm for me if there's any for any other games and in which versions as well. In addition, for those who want to throw it into the FFVI Items article, here's what I have for that:
Hi-Potion: Restores 250 HP.
X-Potion: Fully restores HP.
Ether: Restoeres 50 MP.
Hi-Ether: Restores 150 MP.
X-Ether: Fully restores MP.

Holy Water: Cures zombie status.
Antidote: Cures poison.
Eye Drops: Cures darkness.
Echo Screen: Cures silence.
Gold Needle: Cures petrification.
Green Cherry: Cures imp status.
Remedy: Cures all status ailments except zombie and KO.
Magicite Shard: Summons a random esper. May even summon espers not in the party's possession.
Super Ball: Bounces around the battlefield when thrown. Deals damage to all enemies.
Smoke Bomb: Releases a cloud of thick smoke when thrown. Allows the party to escape from battle.
Teleport Stone: Enchanted with the Teleport spell. Teleports the party out of a dungeon or batle.
Dried Meat: Cures an empty stomach.
Sleeping Bag: Fully restores one person's HP and MP. Can be used outdoors.
Tent: Fully restores the entire party's HP and MP. Can be used outdoors.
Rename Card: Secret item.

Lightning Scroll: Deals lightning damage to all enemies. Use with the Throw command.

I'll leave that to someone else hopefully to put into the article while I'm busy getting more descriptions and whatnot (or doing other things). Enjoy >_>
To keep this going (sticky whether you think this is useful or not), I'll be posting the list of what could be made into articles and whatnot (well, just a list of what's been in however many games...). It's still a WIP so keep that in mind! I'll probably use this as my way to check what can be made and whatnot, unless someone gets to the articles first. Of note, one of the appearances for Wonder Wand is as an artifact, but I don't know if that warrants enough for it to make a weapon article out of it...
In addition to these, I am also looking for the descriptions for weapons from other FF games not from NES/SNES/PSX/GBA/DS era that I cannot access (things such as FFXI, FFXII onwards, PS3/Xbox/Wii/PSP games, etc.), so that we can get these added to the appropriate List of Weapons articles and the weapon articles as well.
Massive updates to the list above. Just letting you guys know, alright!?
Now here's a question: Bracers and Armlets. Are they similar or the same enough to put stuff together, such as Jade Armlet and Jade Bracer?? If so then...well...yeah!
Female Exclusive EquipmentEdit
Shouldn't there be a Female Exclusive Equipment page? I know these type of equipment appeared in FFIV, FFV (Not sure), FFVI, FFIX, FFT, and probably more. It's a recurring type of equipment. Fenrir9 03:23, June 26, 2012 (UTC)
Hmmmm....that would be interesting I think. Though before it's made, need to hear any other opinions on this, but I'd be up for it. Problem is, would there...wait, are there even really any Male exclusive stuff? I don't...think there is???
There's the Escort Band from VII, but that's hardly worth making a page for. Females, on the other hand... (and according to that, Cloud's a girl)
