This page is a style and formatting guideline on GuildWiki.

It has general acceptance among editors and is considered a standard to which articles should adhere. However, it is not set in stone and should be treated with common sense and the occasional exception.

This article provides information on starting, expanding, and completing articles on unique items.

Syntax Example[edit source]

The following is the syntax for a hypothetical unique sword dropped by Undead Prince Rurik.

{{UniqueWeaponInfo <-- For a Shield or Offhand item, use UniqueItemInfo
 | attributes = [[Swordsmanship]]
 | type = [[Slashing]] <-- Omit if using UniqueItemInfo template
 | boss = [[Undead Prince Rurik]]
 | skin = [[Fiery Dragon Sword]]
}}
[[{{subst:PAGENAME}}]] is a [[unique item]] dropped
by [[Undead Prince Rurik]] in [[Hell's Precipice]].

*[[Damage]] +15% (while [[enchantment|enchanted]])

Detailed Explanation[edit source]

Stub Tag[edit source]

Unfinished unique item articles should use {{unique-item-stub}} at the top.

Image[edit source]

The image should not contain the item stats, and should be closely cropped picture of the unique item in question to minimize showing of the character holding it or the surroundings. Ideally, the picture should be taken against a neutral background that complements the item's colors: light items on a grey background (walls in Cantha are good), and dark items on a light blue (sky) or yellow background (several Guild Halls).

Description[edit source]

State what mob(s) drop the unique item in question.

Weapon/Shield Stats[edit source]

Give a text listing for stats of the unique item. The stats should not be shown in an image. Follow closely the in-game description of the item. Link to relevant articles in the GuildWiki.

Collector / Weaponsmith counterpart[edit source]

If the innate mods of the item can be fully or nearly duplicated at a collector or weaponsmith, then give the recipe to create a duplicate of the item.

Notes[edit source]

In this optional section give relevant information not provided in the sections above.

Category[edit source]

Categorize the weapon as appropriate. See the subcategories of Category:Unique Items to figure out what the correct category is.
