I've been updating the Fishing information and I've come across a bit of a conundrum (for me). There are apparently now two items with identical names "Sealed Crate" which are both fished items. The first is item number 6357 a level 35 "Venture Supplies" Sealed Crate. The second is new item number 67597 a level 85 Sealed Crate. To further make this entertaining... there is already disambiguation because there is an object in SW that is used as a quest item.

At present there is a disambiguation set up to reflect one is an object and one is an item. I'm looking for some advice or assistance on the best way to further differentiate the two items. (thinking Name_item_lvl#). --Trilless (talk) 18:50, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

I would put them on the same page instead of disambiguation with text that describes the differences and an external links section that looks like this:

Venture Company Supplies
Fishing (and occasional drop)

Actually, you should probably make two separate pages: Sealed Crate (Venture Company Supplies) and Sealed Crate (fishing) and then just link to them via a Sealed Crate disambig page. So move  [Sealed Crate] to Sealed Crate (Venture Company Supplies). --Gengar orange 22x22.png Fandyllic (talk · contribs) 11:28 AM PST 4 Jan 2011
Both of the crates can be fished, so I'm not sure labeling one as (fishing) would be a good differentiator, though Venture Company Supplies would definitely work for the one. Now we see the chaos inherent in the system! Trilless (talk) 18:51, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
