FANDOM


When you add a hero with new abilities, you have to follow the procedure described below.

Define the damage type icon for the ability

The damage type icon is selected by Template:Icon.
If the icon image is not displayed correctly, you have to define it in the source code of Template:Icon.

Example

In the following case, the icon for Venomous Embrace is not defined yet:

Infobox
Template Icon Setting 1 infobox

Section: Abilities
Template Icon Setting 1 section

To define the icon image, add the following line in the source code of Template:Icon:

Template Icon Setting 2

Then the icon will be displayed as defined:

Infobox
Template Icon Setting 3 infobox

Section: Abilities
Template Icon Setting 3 section

Create the ability template

Abilities are templated for reuse.
An abilty template is used to display the infobox and the summary of an ability.
Create a new page with the name: Template:Ability:(ability name).

Create a new article ability

Paste a line: {{subst:New:Ability}} in the Source editor and publish the page.

New ability publish

Edit the page in the Source editor.
{{Ability
