Item Database Project

From DFO World Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This project is about transferring item data from the game onto the wiki.


Why should I care about this if I can just look up stuff ingame?, you might be asking.

The benefit of having dedicated item pages here on the wiki is so additional information can be supplied, for example if the +% damage on the epic weapon you just got stacks with the King's Ruin bracelet or not.

Ancient and Requiem dungeons will also be able to display all legendary items that can drop inside.

But, most importantly, you can actually search for specific items, which is not possible ingame. Looking for Priest weapons that inflict light damage? Just follow the link and press Search! Want to find all belts that apply an aura effect? Here you go!

Pretty useful, right? Now, those are obviously not all items with those characteristics available in the game, but that's because not all items are on the wiki yet. And that's where you come in: We need all the help we can get to populate the wiki with data so that the search can become a useful tool for the community. So lend a hand, and spread the word! The more people know about this and help, the better.


I'd like to help, but I have no wiki experience whatsoever...

That's not a problem. The way it has been set up makes it easy for people new to wikis to contribute because you only have to copy-paste most of the things.


If you have questions, leave a message on the Talk page.

How to add a piece of equipment

This is a step-by-step guide on how to add pieces of equipment to the wiki. It's recommended that you read through this at least once. Looks like a lot, but since a lot of it is straightforward you probably don't have to read it twice.

Page name

Enter the name of the item in the search bar. If you see the message "Create the page 'Item Name' on this wiki!", simply click on the red link and proceed with the next step. If not, one of the following might be the case:

1. You've landed on a page that is the item

If it's the item you wanted to add, then you're done. Nothing left to do.

2. You've landed on a page, but it is not the item

If the page exists, but is not the item you wanted to add, then you need to do a bit more.
a. The page is not an item
Create the page "Item Name (X)" instead, with X being the item type. For example, if you wanted to add the Hand Cannon "Aquarius", you'll find that the page is about the monster Icon-Aquarius.png Aquarius. Create the page "Aquarius (Hand Cannon)" instead.
b. The page is an item, but not the same type
First, create a page "Item Name (X)" with X being the type of the item you wanted to add. Once you are done with your item, you'll have to take care of the other item: Create another page called "Item Name (Y)" with Y being the type of the other item and copy the contents of that item's page into it. You may have to add | name = Item Name below {{Monster infobox if it doesn't already say that.
Once you're done with that, change the contents of the page "Item Name" to that of a disambiguation page. You can find an example for one here.
c. The page is an item, and is also the same type
Follow the instructions of b., but replace the X and Y with something that distinguishes the two items. For example, if they have different rarities, use the rarity of the items instead. If they affect different skills, use the name of the skill. The disambiguation page linked under b. shows an item where the distinguishing feature is the skill it affects.

3. You've got search results, but no link to create the item

Chances are that the item includes a character that is not allowed in page names:
# < > [ ] | { } _
If it's one of those characters, try to pick a page title that makes sense. For example, if the item was called "[Tradable] Hero's Priest Weapon Pot", create the page "Tradable Hero's Priest Weapon Pot" instead.

4. Nothing of the above.

Leave a message on the project's talk page with the item in question.

Page contents

Now that you've found the appropriate page for the item, it's time to work on the actual content of the page.

First of all, copy the entirety of User:Gardios/Equipment page template and paste it into the new page.

Equipment infobox

That sure is a whole lot, isn't it? Don't worry though, you only have to fill out a portion of it and it's fairly straightforward. Most of it is explained on the template page, so please read this first. The bulk of the work will consist of copying information from the ingame tooltip that you can see via DFOpedia. I will only make a couple of notes here.

Make sure you are viewing the Detailed Info. of the item! The default hotkey to toggle between detailed and quick is F4.

  • name
If you had to follow one of the steps before (meaning that the page name is not identical to the item's name), write the actual item name here. Do not use {{PAGENAME}} here, it will automatically do that if left empty.
  • icon
If the item you want to add shares its icon with another item (which is the case for most Common, Uncommon, Chronicle and some Epic items) and that item already has an image on the wiki, put the name of the image here without the .png file ending. Otherwise, you can leave this empty for now. After you have created the page, you can upload the icon by clicking on the placeholder icon that will appear on the page.
  • All stats
Leave out the unit. For example, if the item says "Casting Speed +1.5%", write "1.5" instead.
  • single skill bonus
The way you write the skill bonuses is explained on the template page. However, keep in mind that skill bonuses to common skills (like Focus: Physical Critical) isn't preceded by a class in the ingame tooltip, so pay close attention if the skill actually belongs to the class preceded in the ingame tooltip or if it's a common skill.
  • skill alteration
This is something that you cannot copy straight from the ingame tooltip. If the item affects a skill that is not a skill level increase, you will have to write something here. The expected format is class(gender), skill name, with class being the base class (e.g. "Slayer" or "Gunner"), gender being a single capitalized letter (i.e. "F" or "M"), and skill name being the skill name. If an item affects multiple skills, you can list all by separating them with a semicolon. If the skill is a common skill, put "Common" in place of class(gender).
For example, the description of Angra Mainiuu.png Angra Mainiuu affects Reaper, Demonic Clutch and Metamorphosis. The infobox will say Priest(M), Reaper; Priest(M), Demonic Clutch; Priest(M), Metamorphosis.
  • aura
If the item mentions in the description that an aura is created around your character with a certain px range, simply write "y" here.
  • description
When copying the description over from the tooltip, keep in mind that for a normal linebreak in the ingame tooltip you will need to put two linebreaks here, and if there are two linebreaks in the ingame tooltip you will need to put three here. Do not add anything here that's not in the tooltip.
  • availability
If the item can't be acquired anymore because it is either an old item or exclusively available through events, put "old" or "event" here respectively.

Acquisition

When you're done with the infobox, you'll need to write down how the item can be acquired. In the DFOpedia, you will find that information if you hover over the minus next to the item name. If you've previously wrote that the availability of the item is either "old" or "event", remove all subsections and instead write how it's acquired with your own words.

If you're adding a bunch of items at the same time on the wiki and some of them require you to edit other pages (such as monster drops or containers), it might be easier to create all item pages first and tackle the other pages on at the end.

  • Quest
If the information says "<Quest name> Quest complete", keep this section. Otherwise, remove this section entirely.
However, if it says that it comes out of a pot that you get as a quest reward, you can remove this section as well. Instead, add the item to the pot's contents. More about this further below.
  • Dropped by
  • {{Dropped by}}
If the information says that it is dropped by a specific monster ("At <Dungeon(Difficulty)> hunt <Monster>"), keep this line. Once you're done with the item, go to the monter's page and add the item as a drop using * {{Drops|ITEM NAME|dungeon=DUNGEON NAME}} and replace ITEM NAME with the wiki page of your item and DUNGEON NAME with the wiki page of the dungeon, or use * {{Drops|ITEM NAME|dungeon=DUNGEON NAME|difficulty=DIFFICULTIES}} if the item only drops on certain difficulties. An example can be found here. If the item is not dropped by a specific monster, delete this.
If the monster is tied to hell mode, use * {{Drops|ITEM NAME|dungeon=DUNGEON NAME|hell=y}} instead.
If the page for the monster doesn't exist yet, you can create it yourself. Simply copy and paste the contents of this page and add the drop.
  • Lv ? - ? General Dungeon Monster Hunt
If the information says that you can find it by hunting monsters in general dungeons, replace the question marks with the actual numbers. Otherwise, remove this line.
  • Lv ? - ? Hell Mode Monster Hunt
If the information says that it's dropped by monsters in hell mode, replace the question marks with the actual numbers. Otherwise, remove this line.
If the item is not dropped by monsters at all, remove the section entirely.
  • Shop
  • Gabriel's Secret Shop
If the information says "Purchase from Gabriel's Secret Shop", keep this line. Otherwise, remove it. Remove it also if Gabriel is merely selling the recipe.
  • {{Shop list}}
If the information says "NPC X Shop Purchase", keep this line. Otherwise, remove it. The wiki will automatically display the shop once the shop has been added to the NPC's page.
If the item is not sold at all, remove this section entirely.
  • Synthesis
If the information says "Produce with a recipe" (regardless of how the recipe is acquired), keep this section. Otherwise, remove this section entirely. The wiki will automatically display the recipe once the recipe item is added to the wiki.
  • Container
If the information says that it's from a pot (regardless of whether the pot comes from a quest or a shop), keep this section. Otherwise, remove this section entirely. Once you're done with the item, go to the pot's page and add the item as content using * {{Contains|ITEM NAME}}. An example can be found here for a pot or here for a chronicle box.
If the page for the container doesn't exist yet, you can create it yourself. Simply copy and paste the contents of either this page for pots, or this page for other containers, and add your item as possible content.
  • Raid
  • Anton Raid: Anton Subjugation party reward
If the information says that it's found among the party rewards for Anton, keep this line. Otherwise, remove it.
  • Anton Raid: Anton Subjugation Attack Unit reward
If the information says that it's found among the Attack Unit rewards for Anton, keep this line. Otherwise, remove it.
If Anton isn't mentioned at all, remove this section entirely.

If none of the above are applicable to the item you're adding to the wiki (such as for Transcendence weapons), remove all subsections and write down in your own words how it's acquired instead.

Notes

If there is anything else about the item that should be clarified, such as if an attack increase stacks with other items or not, you can put this here.

Examples

If you want to see how finished pages look like, check out Scythe and check out various scythe pages.


Other things that can be done

The main focus of this project is equipment, but if you got a bit of experience now, you can help with other things as well.

Shops

NPCs have shops, and if they're set up here on the wiki the shops will automatically appear on the item pages. If you want to add a shop to an NPC page...

{{Shop list header}}

|}

Every shop needs those two lines. Between them, you squeeze the item that's being sold.

{{Shop list row
| item = 
| cost =  
}}

item is the item that's being sold, and cost is the prize in the format of "quantity item". If an NPC sells more than one item, you just put multiple of these.

If an NPC sold two items, a Black Cube Fragment for 5 Clear Cube Fragments and a Red Cube Fragment for 200 Gold, the shop would look like this:

{{Shop list header}}
{{Shop list row
| item = Black Cube Fragment
| cost = 5 Clear Cube Fragment
}}
{{Shop list row
| item = Red Cube Fragment
| cost = 200 Gold
}}
|}

You can find examples for shops on some NPC pages already, like Seria Kirmin or Bowmaster Ludmilla.

Other non-equipment items

First, do not add Avatars, Creatures, Artifacts, Cards, Beads or Emblems on separate pages yet, as the wiki doesn't have the things setup for those just yet. You can add to the already existing pages though like Monster Card.

With that out of the way, adding items isn't much different from adding equipment. If you want to do that, it'd be a good idea to read Template:Item infobox and look at other example items, such as Clear Cube Fragment.png Clear Cube Fragment, Endless Eternity.png Endless Eternity, Shuriken.png Shuriken, Liberation Recipe.png Recipe: Liberation Scythe or Devolved Box - Cracked Dimensional Accessory.png Devolved Box - Cracked Dimensional Accessory.

Maintenance

This section is about explaining things that have to be done in the future when the game receives a bigger update. If you're just here to add items to the wiki, you don't have to care about this.

New base class?

Template:Class enumeration

  • Add the class to the all classes list as well as in the gendered list
  • If the class comes with a unique set of weapons, add the class to the list of classes with their own weapon category
  • If the class is a gender variant of an old class, the old class has to be removed from the gendered list

Form:Equipment query

  • Add the class as a value to the field weapon class and create a new weapon type field with the respective new weapons.

Categories

  • If the class comes with a unique set of weapons, create a new category called "Category: Class Weapons"

New weapon type?

Template:Weapon enumeration

  • Add the weapons to both the class list and the combined list

Form:Equipment query

  • Add the weapon to the appropriate weapon type field.

Template:Equipment infobox

  • If the weapon has a plural that does not simply add an "s" to the word, add that exception to the auto-categorization section

Categories

  • Create a new category with the weapon type's plural
  • Add the category "Category: Class Weapons" to the newly created category
