Keep Page or Merge with Kolima Village[edit]

The reason I created this page: every other monster-filled area has a page. Kolima Tunnel may have nothing else of value in it, but it is of importance to acquiring the Venus Djinni, Granite, and is similar to that of Vault Cave in that the Djinni reward is in the town, not the cave. The Cave has a separate place name as well. Feel free to make counterarguments, however. Marandahir (talk) 15:07, 1 March 2014 (CST)

It does look like there could be a "Kolima Tunnel" included on some directory template or another. The question, though: Isn't it better off categorized as a minor location than a "dungeon"? I don't think the wiki is so strictly defined in various areas concerning what's a dungeon-style location and what's a minor location, and monsters are one thing that can't really be relied on because monsters can technically be either in or out of each of these different kinds of locations. (Some odd pattern-breakers elsewhere are that the little cave tunnel in the minor location Alpine Crossing has monsters in it, and yet that's still clearly a minor location as opposed to a dungeon; that page is missing a bestiary. Also don't forget that monsters appear in the small treasure chest cave at southern Vale, another page that seems to be missing a bestiary for that.) We just go with whatever "feels" minor and whatever "feels" like a proper dungeon when deciding what directory template they should be listed in, and Vault Cave at least earns its definition as a dungeon because players specifically go back for it later in the game, and it has puzzles and its own treasures beyond the Venus Djinni in the town area at the end (all of which help make it it an end itself in addition to just being a means to an end). So I'd propose moving Kolima Tunnel out of the dungeon template and into the minor locations template. And since there are a lot of minor locations that do have articles, I guess this page could be kept as it is while categorized as a minor location and having the right template...Erik the Appreciator (talk) 17:47, 1 March 2014 (CST)
You make good points – though I've honestly never encountered enemies in Alpine Crossing, so I might double-check that. As for the minor cave in Vale, that's actually called by the game a part of Goma Cave, which makes more sense if you know the Japanese name for Goma Cave – it's Goma Mountain Range's Cave, and as we know from Dark Dawn, Vale is in a region that's part of the Goma Mountains. But I'll yield if it makes more sense to move it to minor locations. They just seem to be all over the place, and not well categorized, in my opinion. Marandahir (talk) 19:46, 1 March 2014 (CST)
