Weapon PTH, Wiki, and You. (in General)
I had always wondered why there are no PTH entries in the Wiki for the weapons, and people say that it is unnecessary, because you can just check the cost as you forge/blacksmith ahead.
It may be pointless to some, but I think it could be useful to forgers, or people who need the PTH of a certain weapon forged.
Therefore, I am going to try to get as many PTH NWs as possible for as many weapons as possible.
I'm using this spreadsheet to record my data. As you can see there are massive holes.
Now, this is where you come in. I've found as many different +s on the Elven Long Bow as possible, without going through every FS/WTB thread out there. If you could take a quick peak at this and see if you have an ELB with a + that is missing, either post all of your ELBs stats (X's, +'s, and NW) in this thread or give me a CM, I'd appreciate it.
P.S.- You can also use the blacksmith to find the upgrade cost of the + on your weapon by up to 7. That can help as well...
Okay, new plan. If you have any rare weapon (ELB, Mageseeker,SoD, AxBow, ExBow, BoTH, VB, ELS, BoNE, or MH,), that is unnamed (since I've already gathered all the named items stats), could you either post your weapons stats, the X along with the + and NW, in this thread or via CM? I'd greatly appreciate it.
Also, I am in desperate need of someone that knows how to make a table/chart in the Wiki, not to input the data (although that would be very nice of them), just teach me how to make one, or set it up themselves.
Thanks again CB community.

An Enforcer's Crossbow [4x251] (+40) 3,828,656
An Assassin's Crossbow [4x103] (+23) 1,335,179
I believe the elbow, mh, bone, els, and both all have the same upgrade costs, so that should make things a little easier.

Also, when collecting such data, the Rentals, Previous Auctions and Rare Item stats pages are all quite useful. I used those to compile a lot of the shield nw's.
Burnt through the Named items and the expired auctions. I have yet to do the rentals for everything except the ELB however...
I have an awk script that makes nice tables in the wiki. My first version used a lot of ascii line drawing. I've since changed to the version I have in Evasion. I'll help you with it when the time comes.
Also, I think that previously people thought PTH was useless in the wiki because it was almost impossible to separate 'x' NW from '+' NW. That isn't the case anymore.

Let me know when you're on, and I'll send you a bunch of stuff for an hour and you can get the current PTH and the next 7 at the blacksmith.
I'm on right now. If you wanna do it now, shoot, I'm ready.
That was a good $200m NW of weaponry.... :)
Still needing a ton of NWs... If you can, try to join chat and find me, loaning an item for an hour doesn't cost too much. I'll even pay you back for the xfer fee.
