This page contains The Vault's notable loot policy. It describes criteria to determine loot notability.
  • Policies set general rules for the wiki's administration and its content.
  • Any registered editor is free to edit this page to improve its readability as long as the essence of the article remains unchanged.
  • If you would like to suggest content changes or propose a new policy or guideline, please use the wiki discussion forum.

In order to keep articles about locations useful for readers and clutter-free, only notable loot is to be listed, i.e. items that are of special interest. In order for an item to be considered notable, they must fit into at least one of the categories below:

  • Uniqueness or rarity
  • High monetary value
  • Used in repeatable quests, and found in substantial amounts
  • Oversized or undersized variants of otherwise non-notable items
  • Notably high amounts of otherwise non-notable items
  • Holodisks and notes

One-of-a-kind items are always notable, which includes unique weapons, armor, and notes. Items with a finite quantity (i.e., not found in shops, random loot, etc) are also considered notable.
