Do there really need to be separate articles for each appearance of potions? I think we could just make different sections in this article and say how much HP they heal, where you can get them, etc., like we do with other articles on this wiki. Thoughts?
That's how it should be, I don't know why this article is so different. Articles like Elixir do it already.
There was some info in the FFI potion article. Can you possibly recover it and move that info over here?
- Effect: restores 50 HP
- Cost: 60 G (original version)/40 gil (Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls)
- Sold at: Cornelia, Pravoka, Cresent Lake item shops
There you go. I don't know how much of that should be included. Diablocon 19:05, 24 June 2007 (UTC)
All of it. And stuff like that looks better in a shiny pretty table.
Energy Drink Combine[edit source]
How funny is it that every time I seem to reorganize something anymore, Bluer is always in my way? Even in the most silly things like this. What is up with that?Okay, let me explain why we don't need two articles and a disambig. Its fairly self-evident from the beginning, since few people have ever heard of the energy drink. Would a person be annoyed to find that if they type in Potion, they would not find some product that was only released in Japan? No. Potion has a simply universal meaning, its an restorative item. In every Final Fantasy I might add. Even the energy drink itself was just a clear reference to the item. If somebody is searching Potion, they want to see the item. The energy drink can go at the bottom of this page in a pop-culture or trivia section. Its not a staple of the series, its not even in a single game, its not even out anywhere outside of Japan. It certainly is not significant enough to warrant pushing this page into a disambig.
It's also a disambig for the music album page (I wonder why I forget about these two albums). Also, as for the Potion Energy drink, it is exactly because the few people have ever heard of the energy drink that it's best to dedicate an article about it. So far, this product has been released in commemoration with FFXII's and Crisis Core FFVII's release. It's a good coverage for the wiki.
If nobody has heard of it, why would they care? If they can't drink it or buy it, then its pretty worthless information, is it not? Anyway, the item has much greater significance then just a one-time-only marketing ploy. And since all the info could be fit on this article alone, why do you even oppose this?
Hehe, you remind me of the mergists in Wikipedia. In fact, I think you fit better in Wikipedia.It doesn't hurt to dedicate one whole article for it, does it? A piece for the merchandise category.
You can make an article for the entire drink line that Square made, I hear Elixir and Phoenix Down were in that as well. A fine idea.PS: Ad hominem arguments aside, I am a mergist. As far as I can see it, the less articles the better. Just as long as no information is lost, less is better. See the Materia articles.
Remodelling colours?[edit source]
I'm all set in re-structuring this page, but I need specific colours for each table in each game...I also need specific instructions (Steal?, Manipulate?, Mug, Poach, etc.) for whichever game needs it and I'm too lazy to look out for that (seeing that I've greatly expanded the Hi-Potion and Gold Needle pages...)

- Table colours can be found here. Thanks for helping, all of it is appreciated. ;) &mdash YuanSaluto!Acta 04:40, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Adding tables?[edit source]
Alright, so I don't know what you guys think, but for the TAY sections for each items, do you guys want the tables as I had put for each of the other sections or not? I could do that if its decided upon, but I want to hear everyone's opinion in it first
Special potion?[edit source]
There is a special potion in crisis core that gives you raise, does it belong here? Fear the leading man
- Yeah, I think it should be mentioned. A short little description at the end of the Crisis Core section should be fine. Moocowisi 01:34, March 28, 2010 (UTC)
