Techniques That Need Damage Spading

I used to keep this page on a forum post here but moving to a real page so everyone can edit if they want.

I've been going through all the techniques that need damage spading and knocking off the easier ones. I went through and made a table to prioritize the remaining ones by ease of spading. ("Hard" = either actually difficult or just time consuming, eg. waiting for a snowmaiden to show up, (or both)). Some of these are pretty arbitrary designations though.

Please feel free to contribute.
