"Azeroth" / Classic / Original Edit

I think the first line should refer to something other than "Azeroth". Northrend is part of Azeroth, and the first line is really about WoW classic before any expansion. Would "Eastern Kingdoms & Kalimdor" be too wordy? Is there a more concise alternative? I know this is an issue elsewhere as well but I somewhat arbitrarily chose to use this as a test case. -- Harveydrone 20:38, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Mu. The headings should be "Original", "Burning Crusade", and "Wrath of the Lich King". Northrend is one Azeroth exception, Isle of Quel'Danas is another: BC ore varieties are found there. With these two exceptions, the "divide it by land" illusion cannot be sustained. Perhaps "Burning Crusade resources" and "Wrath of the Lich King resources" pages should be developed? --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 20:56, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Did you just "unask the question"? Ha. I modified this to show the game/expansion name instead. I need to see if the names I gave are the best. I'm not sure whether there need to be new pages for resources introduced in each expansion. -- Harveydrone 23:58, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
I realized another option is to break them down by profession grade (Apprentice, etc), like on Template:Herbs. -- Harveydrone 00:02, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
There are not nearly so many metals as there are herbs; I don't think breaking them down by profession grade would be as enlightening, though it might be more consistent. What of skins? --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 21:06, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
The skins template breaks down by type (leather/hides/other). I don't see much consistency across these kinds of templates, so I'd say this is good for now. (Alignment, grouping, and link styles all vary.) It kind of begs for a Nav Templates project -- more than I'm up for atm. I mainly wanted "Azeroth" changed. -- Harveydrone 16:32, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
So... I'm thinking ... that you're thinking... that these gathering skill nav bars could be put under a unified organization pattern. I'm not yet sold on the idea, myself, though. Herbs has too many entries to be "nice" under the 'bars' scheme, and vice versa (too few bars). On the positive side, never will two of these nav templates be on the same page... --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 22:34, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
I guess what I meant was ... it's probably not too important to try to make Bars consistent with another template, since there doesn't seem to be consistency among others anyway. And I agree, strict consistency may not be the most useful anyway. -- Harveydrone 16:38, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Another nav template occured to me to add to the comparison list. Pigments (and inks). --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 20:46, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
