Suggestions[edit source]

Great job with the page so far. Been wanting to contribute to the Monster section, but the NPC layout didn't really fit for mobs and I'm terrible with any coding that isn't already laid out haha. I'd like to suggest adding in HP, XP, and especially faction (or affiliation) to the infobox. After all, Dusk Adder mobs have Lumang Syndicate above their names, Forward Base mobs have Talus Army above their names, etc. Also, copper drops in the loot section. --FallingMoonSinkingStar (talk) 05:47, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

Sure, I'll make an optional faction parameter later. I can imagine HP might be nice to know as well, but do we really need XP and copper drops? I understand they do exist, but I don't think it'd be very useful. --Cirno.pngCappucciruno
Yeah, XP and copper from mobs are rather insignificant compared to what players get from quests. And some mobs don't even give either XP or copper. However, if the information is being gathered anyway, might as well include it. Why withhold actual game information from a game database? Including quotes from mobs is viable too. However, I guess XP and copper don't need to be in the infobox, so I'll include it below the Loot section.
By the way, I noticed the name wasn't showing in the example, so I placed the title below the image like in Template:Infobox npc. I also added in faction, gender, race, class, and hp optional parameters. These won't show at all if left blank or deleted. Hope that's okay with you. --FallingMoonSinkingStar (talk) 16:41, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
That's cool. The name and title show above the infobox, I put the title there to give it a look similar to in-game titles. The Undefined text will only appear when someone misses a required parameter, categorizing the page in incomplete templates. They're for maintenance purposes so please don't remove them. I put level and type on top of the template since they seem like more important information someone might want to know firsthand. Should we have them both together as a single row? Something like "Lv 20 World Boss" under the image instead, without the row headers. --Cirno.pngCappucciruno 01:48, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
I see. Sorry, I'm still unfamiliar with a lot of the coding. Earlier, I thought that Incomplete Template category was showing up no matter what, but apparently it's because I didn't add a map image. And for some reason, only the title shows up (with the name missing) when using Mozilla Firefox, but works perfectly in Google Chrome. Level and type as a single row is fine. --FallingMoonSinkingStar (talk) 06:23, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
