== Connected Areas ==

== Structures ==

== Puzzles ==

== Trivia ==

== History ==

== Soundtrack ==

Materials pages

Material pages are primarily using the following layout (if a section is relevant):


== Characteristics ==

== Sources ==

== Tips ==

== Reactions ==

== Trivia ==

== History ==

== Gallery ==

== See Also ==

Enemies pages

  • Check and expand the details! (cross-reference with their code)
  • Reorder the intro statement to refer to the in-game name as the primary name, treating the english name as an AKA with other nicknames.
    • Example before: The Tentacler (in-game name Turso) is a large, flying enemy resembling a pink octopus.
    • Example after: Turso (also known as Tentacler, or Octopus) is a large, flying enemy resembling a pink octopus.

Spells pages

  • Check and expand the details! (cross-reference with their code)
  • Add more example {{Wand}} builds, everywhere!


Anywhere and everywhere

  • Add links pointing to the Orphaned pages
  • Add links within the Dead-end pages
  • Check for outdated/incorrect info
  • Rewrite anything that is unclear or confusing
  • Add more pictures!
  • Add more details!
  • If you'd like to suggest improvements to a template, feel free to add notes to the corresponding talk page
  • If you see things that can be improved, or are a bit wonky in the wiki's formatting or theme, ask on the Discord!
  • Add a History subsection close to the bottom of the page and use {{History}} to record patch notes that were relevant to that topic. Some helpful resources to get started:
  • Cross-link alt language pages (there are a lot of english pages which don't ref their counterparts): 日本語, Türkçe, 中文

Spoiler tag and wrap

  • {{Spoiler}} - for inline spoiler text - NOTE: Never use this for links, as it makes them hard to click-to-unspoil, especially on mobile, e.g. SPOILER: matosade .
  • {{Spoiler/page}} - a banner for the top of a page or section.
  • {{spoiler/start}} and {{spoiler/end}} - a spoiler wrapper for blocks of content

Glyph Translations

  • {{Glyph Translation | translation text here}} - a translation box showing a before/after of the original glyph text / the translated text.

Thumbnail Captions and Alt attributes

Sodium reacting to water

The difference between thumbnail captions and alt attributes is that alt describes how the image or animation looks while a caption gives context about the image.

If they were the same then screen readers would read it twice, so avoid copying the caption into the alt attribute. For example, the image here might have the caption: "Sodium reacting to water". Whereas the alt text would be: "Animated screenshot of the inside of a Holy Mountain showing a white pile that bursts into small repeated orange explosions along the floor that lasts for several seconds".

Existing images

Wand templates

  • {{Wand}}, compact, for showing spell-combinations
  • {{Wand Card}}, a specific wand with stats, spells, and a name

Infobox templates

Navbox templates

Game data value conversion templates

These templates do a simple math conversion on game data values to convert them to the numbers players see in the UI. Formulas for these can be found on the Data.wak page.

Section/listing-creation templates


Site CSS

The wiki uses the Vector theme as a base, and has some custom styles applied for certain templates as well as overriding many parts of Vector's default styles. The custom stylesheets are below. Contact an administrator if you want to request style changes or report display issues to be resolved.

  • MediaWiki:Vector.css — mainly contains theme-specific styles: backgrounds, colors, borders, things of that nature, plus specific tweaks to override the default Vector stylings. It's most of the broad visual styles for the wiki.
  • MediaWiki:Common.css — contains primarily layout and template styles, along with some "base" styles that are expected to be overridden by the theme. Some of this includes variables that are deliberately overwritten in the Vector.css in order to allow template styles to be fully defined in Common.css but still have appropriate color overrides provided by Vector.css.

Utility Classes

The following utility classes can be added to some elements, usually divs or tables (for example: <div class="____"> or {| class="____" |}) elements in the wiki to achieve specific effects. Multiple classes can be added within the quotation marks This list may not be comprehensive, you may want to review the stylesheets linked above for a more complete picture of our utility classes.

  • nomobile - do not show this element when viewing on narrow sreens, such as mobile devices.
  • mobileonly - only show this element when viewing on narrow screens, such as mobile devices.
  • wikitable - apply our standard table styling; tables lacking this class will still retain table layout, but have no borders or padding.
  • compact - combine with wikitable to reduce the padding to a minimum, to help render larger tables without taking up so much space.
  • vertical-headings - make the headings in the first row (apart from the very first heading) render text vertically; this is useful for very dense, usually compact data-heavy tables.
  • sticky-headers - make the headings of a table "stick" to the top of the screen as you scroll down a long table. Great for very long tables.
  • noita-font - applies the Noita Pixel font to whatever is contained in the element. If inside a spoiler in the hidden state, this font will be replaced with the Noita Glyphs font.

Wikitext Extension Tags

  • <syntaxhighlight lang="html+handlebars"></syntaxhightlight>
    • Create an example code-block that supports syntax highlighting for HTML and wikitext.
    • Substitute another language name (for example, javascript or js for JavaScript) to change the syntax highlighting behaviour.
  • <math></math>
    • Add a LaTeX-rendered math equation.
    • See the help documentation for usage.
    • Start your equations with \color{white} to ensure they're readable on most pages on the wiki.

Admin mass-replace

For bulk-edit requests, you can ask an admin to assist with the Special:ReplaceText tool. It works like this:
