Wording of Fossil as currency

It seem it is not stackable unless GGG made a new slot in fragment tab. But what wording is more appropriate? Neokowloon (talk) 14:37, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

Fossils are apparently classified as "Stackable Currency" internally (and in loot filters), but they literally are not stackable. It's fine to change the the language to something more appropriate. —Vini (t|c) 18:00, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Passive skill data is all screwed up

Having passive skills get automatically updated is fine and all, but things are getting messed up when it comes to overlapping names. Look at Elementalist (Ascendant passive). It's got the icon for the regular passive version and on a table it links to the class. It's a mess. Is there a way to manually fix this?--ThemJohns (talk) 22:29, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

You can change the icon parameter in the data page (Passive: ...) to fix it manually. I see why it is happening though and it's best I fix it right in the export. Edit: I'll fix this problem tomorrow. --OmegaK2 (t|c) 22:40, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
Is there an easier way to access the passive data page? If people knew how to access them they could manually fix the data if needed.--ThemJohns (talk) 15:51, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
Going to Elementalist (Ascendant passive) and hovering over the stat text on the infobox then clicking on the the reference link that pops out is the easiest way for single page editing. It's also possible to search it the normal way if you make sure to click on Everything, see [1]. You can probably do some clever cargo query if you want every page with this issue. This is a bug that should be reported and fixed in the source though. The bot tends to just overwrite next time it updates anyway. --Illviljan (talk) 16:42, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
Took longer then I wanted to because the wiki was having issues the other day, but the passives and images have been updated. --OmegaK2 (t|c) 15:14, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
The icons still doesn't link to the right page. And there doesn't seem to be a way to change the link on the template.--ThemJohns (talk) 06:51, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
This is a little bit tricky since we don't store any cargo data about the main page at the moment. We could start using the icon name format File:Elementalist (Ascendants) passive skill icon.png and then we make sure to redirect Elementalist (Ascendants) to Elementalist (Ascendant passive) or vice versa? --Illviljan (talk) 16:11, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
On the passive data page, using main_page parameter should work --OmegaK2 (t|c) 17:25, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
In the tables, passive skill names refer to the main title rather than the data in the main_page (this does not apply to the clickable image). An example can be seen on the page Shield#Block_chance, the first passive skill Block (passive skill).--Ruba159753 (talk) 21:34, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
Fixed that. --OmegaK2 (t|c) 17:33, 20 October 2018 (UTC)

Renamed MTX?

I think the following MTX have been renamed, anyone knows their current name so they can be updated properly?

I can assume that:
  • Rhoa Pet
  • Burning Corpse Pile
  • Oriath Pet
But I'm not sure. Need to inspect.

List item

Hello, the item Module Error: Item link: No results found for search parameter "Blue Flame Incinerate". is not displayed in the list Alternate skill effect, although it should be more related to it, and this is most likely because of the metadata_id--Kordloperdlo (talk) 09:32, 24 October 2018 (UTC)

Skills not appearing on the skill list

Hello, I have noticed some skills are not appearing on the list of active skill gems. For example, Vortex, Orb of Storms and Frostbolt are not appearing in any of the lists. I don't know enough about the code for the lists to fix it, but does someone know how to do it? Erasculio (talk) 02:45, 27 October 2018 (UTC)

Null edit the item pages.--Illviljan (talk) 04:43, 27 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, that did it. I have edited the missing (non Vaal) active skill pages, now they're all listed properly. Erasculio (talk) 12:01, 27 October 2018 (UTC)

The same passive_skill_boxes on different pages

There are different passive skills with the same name. And in such cases it turns out that on different pages the same passive_skill_boxes are obtained. For an example: Juggernaut (passive skill) и Juggernaut (Ascendant passive). Is it fixable?--Ruba159753 (talk) 10:11, 18 November 2018 (UTC)

If you want, you can do:
{{Passive skill box
  AND passive_skills.stat_text IS NOT NULL
  AND passive_skills.ascendancy_class IS NOT NULL
Are there many of these cases that we should consider another input parameter for the template? --Illviljan (talk) 19:07, 18 November 2018 (UTC)

Navbox: hide/show

Why our Navbox has no hide/show button? It would be useful on such large Navbox as Navbox maps.--Ruba159753 (talk) 08:45, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

Gems missing from Vendor rewards

Most gems are missing from the vendor reward tables for the pages Lost in Love, Sever the Right Hand, The Root of the Problem and The Eternal Nightmare.

Tracking down the data in Module:Quest_reward/data/vendor, the data appears to be listed there correctly, and the vendor unlock is listed on the individual gem pages, just not on the quest page itself. Null edits to quest page and gem page did nothing.

It appears the issue is when a quest has some gems unlock at the vendor for all classes, but other gems for just some classes - the quest page is only showing the vendor reward for the all classes rewards in this situation. --Qetuth-(talk) 08:48, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

When rewards were given out to all classes it only showed that and not any class specific rewards. Thanks for bringing this up, I fixed the problem and it should work now --OmegaK2 (t|c) 14:07, 1 December 2018 (UTC)
An error appeared: Lua error in Module:Quest_reward at line 379: attempt to index local 'class' (a boolean value). in quests like Mercy Mission.--Ruba159753 (talk) 17:07, 1 December 2018 (UTC)
Fixed --OmegaK2 (t|c) 16:43, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Edit Sidebar to be more player centric

Make changes to the sidebar to have it more usable to players vs the admins. Under the "known issues link" have a category called "Overview", which has links to Act 1 through Act 10 or just Act, Hideout, Map, Crafting, Ascendancy class, and such. The linked pages would be popular pages that people would find useful without searching or going back to the homepage. --Rguy84 (talk) 23:33, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

The Main page has the links that you're looking for. Perhaps we can add a section to the sidebar containing a handful of important links. I'd like to keep it to 10 or less though. —Vini (t|c) 00:20, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
That's my point, not needing to go back to the main page to get the info. --Rguy84 (talk) 00:48, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
I understand that, but we can't have 100 links in the sidebar. Make some suggestions about what the 10 most important articles might be. If I had to name a few, they'd be Skill gems, Unique items and Vendor recipes. —Vini (t|c) 00:55, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

New map pages for Betrayal

I've roughly finished the export for the new maps. Since they're not all that different from the regular maps I think it would make sense to copy over the Atlas of Worlds series and then adapt the betrayal series.

Since we are ending up having a lot of duplication then, I think it might make sense to move version history to the base page (the one that has disambiguation links). Boss fights could possibly reside on the newest version, I am not sure if some of the very old maps if open today still contain the very same boss fights as the newest maps do. If someone knows this is case for ALL iterations of map that could also be moved to the base page.

Also does anyone know if the card drops actually changed? The odd thing about the new map series is that the base items and world areas are the same as the old one, just with a new makeover in terms of tier, map upgrades, icon and atlas location. If they didn't, I could keep the drop information on the new pages.

--OmegaK2 (t|c) 15:45, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

There are so many map series already that I think it would be nice to add categories for them. Which will be applied automatically, given the argument map_series.--Ruba159753 (talk) 14:25, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
User:OmegaK2, Agree to centralize the map mechanics to one page. I haven't test the oldest map before. But when War for the Atlas series was introduced , the legacy map Acid Lakes Map (Atlas of Worlds)(typo fixed on 12:33, 8 March 2019 (UTC)) are able to open portal for me to do the warband. Any change of the map (i.e. layout and boss) can just move to the change log and just keep the map detail for the current version only. Neokowloon (talk) 17:00, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
I've had some time to think about this, and I think the best course of action going onward is to move everything to page matching name of the Map and just take the infobox of the latest version (the one with the league name in the page tile). Otherwise we'd need to move the boss/map mechanics every time to the newest page as well. If anything actually differs on the legacy map it can still be noted. --OmegaK2 (t|c) 10:47, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Creating a List of Uniques and the Vendor Sell Prices

I've been playing around with trying to get this to work but am unfamiliar with the wiki table joining, essentially I was just trying to create/modify the current /List_of_all_unique_items to include a column with the sell_price. Allowing for faster checking of item values. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by HartlessRage (talkcontribs) 01:47, 14 December 2018

Backgrounds and icons of Shaper and Elder items

Is it possible to change the image of these items so that they have the appropriate background? There should be no problems with icons, as they could be added to MediaWiki:Common.css. And to make it all start working with |is_shaper_item = True for example.--Ruba159753 (talk) 09:26, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

I don't see why not? But I don't have a lot of experience with the css part. Do we have the background images? --Illviljan (talk) 19:53, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
I don't know how to get the images, but I can handle the rest. —Vini (t|c) 20:03, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
ElderBackground.png, ShaperBackground.png. I can try to get animations, but they are stored in a video file.. Kordloperdlo (talk) 20:33, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Animated background is not necessary, just pictures. And the symbols on the frame, like this:

Veiled gif in unique items?

Should we replace the veiled mod text with a veiled gif instead? Here's an example: Cinderswallow UrnCinderswallow Urn
Silver Flask
Lasts 5.00 Seconds
Consumes 40 of 60 Charges on use
Requires Level 22Recharges 1 Charge when you Consume an Ignited corpse
Enemies Ignited by you during Flask Effect take 10% increased Damage
Recover (1-3)% of Life when you Kill an Enemy during Flask Effect
Recover (1-3)% of Mana when you Kill an Enemy during Flask Effect
Recover (1-3)% of Energy Shield when you Kill an Enemy during Flask Effect
Veiled Suffix
A controlled burn is sometimes necessary for new life.Right click to drink. Can only hold charges while in belt. Refills as you kill monsters.
. If it returns 2 veiled mods we just use two gifs to indicate that. --Illviljan (talk) 20:05, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

That would be cool. There needs be one gif for veiled prefixes and another for suffixes though. —Vini (t|c) 20:43, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
This is how Ruba159753 (talk) did - ({{Ml|VeiledPrefix|display=stat_text}})Kordloperdlo (talk) 21:41, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Using VeiledVeiled
and of the Veilof the Veil
feels correct. Only thing I don't like about that is that the bot will override it every time it updates the mods. We could use explicit4_text=veiled.gif and |explicit4_random_list to get the query powers too like with Watcher's EyeWatcher's Eye
Prismatic Jewel
Limited to: 1(4-6)% increased maximum Energy Shield
(4-6)% increased maximum Life
(4-6)% increased maximum Mana
<Two or Three random aura modifiers>
One by one, they stood their ground against a creature
they had no hope of understanding, let alone defeating,
and one by one, they became a part of it.
Place into an allocated Jewel Socket on the Passive Skill Tree. Right click to remove from the Socket.
. Just gotta figure out what the valid pool of mods are for the uniques. --Illviljan (talk) 08:58, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

It's not discerning between normal and unique maps at the moment. It should be safe to just require the rarity to be Normal for 3 to 1 map recipes, right? --Illviljan (talk) 18:41, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

Just a mistake I guess. It is not possible to datamine modifiers, so they are manually added to the items by us editors. Since many modifiers have the same stat text it can sometimes be difficult to determine which one is the correct one so you have to take a chance, and sometimes the wrong one is chosen. If you see that a modifier is wrong feel free to change the modifier id to the correct one. See Template:Item#When to use mod id and mod text if you want to help out with this. --Illviljan (talk) 17:29, 13 March 2019 (UTC)

Error in bows

It seem Template:Item acquisition is not working in Imperial Bow and Harbinger Bow. May be related reason, they are missing in List of bows. Neokowloon (talk) 15:03, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

The data is not getting stored correctly it seems. Apparently there have been an update to cargo on the backend which may have caused it, but it seems something about the drop_rarities field is broken; recreating the tables seems to fix the problems. I'll run a bot to go through all the pages null-editing them and then swap in the new table once that's done, but it will take a while --OmegaK2 (t|c) 16:27, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
I'm not sure why but it seems like it didn't end up fixing this after all. I'll try renaming the field tomorrow and see if that helps. --OmegaK2 (t|c) 22:46, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

League-specific items: Item acquisition: new template parameter?

Niightblade (talk) 11:54, 4 July 2019 (UTC) -- Could someone add a parameter to the item template for league-specific items? I added a rough draft page for it to link to: League-specific items.

drop_leagues is for league restrictions. There is also a section about league specific items, which that should redirect to rather then copying it.
Since you mentioned item acquisition, do you want that section to be more specific about league restrictions? Right now they're just mentioned in the second info box. --OmegaK2 (t|c) 14:44, 6 July 2019 (UTC)
It would be very long for drop_text as beastcrafting, Cameria's Transportation safehouse chest, level 2 and level 3 sacrifice alter in the Temple, Shaper's Stronghold are the methods to acquire it and in core mechanics as those leagues are in core. May be i would suggest to create an article for league-specific item and list those methods in it. Instead of writing the drop_text again and again (plus writing the same text of chancing in Zana modded map, trading with other players).

, but without adding the list of method to acquire them in Drop-restricted item. Neokowloon (talk) 15:49, 6 July 2019 (UTC)
Not sure why you're mentioning drop_text, as I've said right above your post drop_leagues is the only correct way to denote league restrictions. All instances where leagues are mentioned in drop_text should be deleted. It is currently not showing in the item acquisition section because it is showing in the second infobox on the right side. If required, however, it can show in the section. If so I'd make a short notice rather then detailing all the possible ways and place a link to the article with more details. --OmegaK2 (t|c) 16:06, 6 July 2019 (UTC)
Some off-topic List of league-specific base items and List of league-specific unique items need to be rework as some item as core or quasi-core due to change in method to obtain them. Also, if Warbands unique items are included , those linked to prophecy and Pale Council boss are "league-specific" too. Neokowloon (talk) 16:23, 6 July 2019 (UTC)
OmegaK2, i mean such as Headhunter#Drop restrictions is that really need to have this section (either migrated to drop_text or not) for every league-specific item, or just list those methods in Drop-restricted item#League-specific unique items. Neokowloon (talk) 16:25, 6 July 2019 (UTC)
A parameter for monsters restrictions be added soon-ish when the monster data is on the wiki (which shouldn't be far off since a lot of the groundwork has been done already. There can be more parameters if needed. In general, everything should go to a specific parameter, drop_text is ONLY a last resort. Are there any prophecy related uniques that are not covered by areas, monsters, or upgrades (i.e. kill x while wearing y)?
No, that specific case can be deleted. It should absolutely not go into drop_text, as (again) it's not what it is for. drop_text is for out of the ordinary restrictions that are not covered by the other existing parameters. League restrictions ARE covered. It does not need to be repeated manually on each page and should go into a generic page detailing the restrictions. Since people are blind apparently and added it to a ton of pages, I'll add something to item acquisition via drop leagues. --OmegaK2 (t|c) 16:36, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

Automatic divination cards via item module

We have situation where there are some divination cards that can produce a lot of items that need to be added to many item pages. I think it might be time to add cases like this to the module, but the primary reason this wasn't done before is because they are a special cases where certain cards can't produce certain items.

Anyway the implementation I am going for is probably going to be like this:

  • Add paramter to turn off automatic drops on an item (i.e. disable_automatic_upgraded_from)
  • Add the automatic upgraded_from at the end of the manual ones added.
  • Find and remove manual upgrade from that are now duplicated by the automated system
  • (maybe) add a parameter to disable specific, automated recipes from said system

The system should only cover methods that apply to a lot of items, so things like Arrogance of the VaalArrogance of the Vaal8Item
Discovery can lead to beauty, or it can lead to ruin.
which can basically produce most unique items.

Before doing a change like this, we should figure out those special cases so we can isolate them before showing (incorrectly) that they can be gained through divination cards that produce random items. Any other input is also welcome. --OmegaK2 (t|c) 10:36, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

I've implemented this code (in sandbox) and updated the documentation, but haven't made it live yet. If anyone wants to check over the cards if anything is missing or wrong that would be helpful.

Support gems that can be used

I don't know how necessary it is, but it seems like it would be a good idea. Is it possible to implement a template on skill_gems pages that would show which support_gems can be used with this skill_gem?--Ruba159753 (talk) 21:26, 9 August 2019 (UTC)

It can just be a list. It doesn't need to be a template. —Vini (t|c) 21:35, 9 August 2019 (UTC)

It can be done, but hasn't been because I didn't like how it mainly involved guesstimating what the values for the skill use type do, those determine which gem can support other gems, they also change (numerically) most patches, so it's a bit of a hassle to keep updated. I can look into adding to the skill template though. I'll most likely use some text variants, but those will be arbitrary. --OmegaK2 (t|c) 18:09, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

uses is a new function and and that's probably why it hasn't been used much besides the extreme ones. For example Vessel of Vinktar seems to be an obvious one to use it on where only the fourth mod changes per variant. Doryani's Delusion however has different images so I don't think that one is as obvious. Which image should be used as main? Where will the rest go? Just as gallery pictures on the item page or should those be added to the template somehow too? Are there any other items with variants we can do this with? --Illviljan (talk) 20:38, 13 August 2019 (UTC)
Vessel of Vinktar as well as Yriel's Fostering, Volkuur's Guidance and Doryani's Invitation are same base but different mods. Doryani's Delusion have 3 base, and each base had 9 variants, making a total of 27 variants. Neokowloon (talk) 14:17, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

✓ Bot overwriting skill gem acquisition sections?

It looks like all of the articles about skill gems now only show divination cards as a source of acquisition. The sections on quest rewards and vendors is gone. Is this a bot gone awry? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by UnbanPodNow (talkcontribs) 01:36, 11 September 2019‎ (UTC)

Skill looks

I suggest we have a section within the skill gem page with a short gif showing how the skill effect/range are.

Nets as league specific item

I think those nets with red text "Drop Disabled" are sufficient for people to understand it is legacy item, even you can net decrease the number of nets by 3 to 1 recipe to "acquire" net of next tier.

The text "This item is restricted to areas with the league flag for Bestiary active. There are additional ways to acquire league-restricted items, see League-specific items for more details. " may confuse people. Can we have a switch that if "Drop Disabled" exist (|drop_enabled = false), so that the league-specific text be changed ?

So, i really don't understand the disruptive behaviour by User:Niightblade that removed "|drop_leagues = Bestiary" from the nets, claiming "since it can't drop at all now can it?)".

It looks silly to remove Leaguestone's "|drop_leagues = Legacy" based on the same logic.

Neokowloon (talk) 09:23, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

Niightblade(t) — I'm sorry you feel that way, I'm never disruptive on purpose.

Meta id for mtx

I just created Celestial Raise Zombie Skin, but where could i find meta id? Not sure did i done it right for other parameters in the infobox. Neokowloon (talk) 21:10, 5 October 2019 (UTC)

Use PyPoE exporter or just leave the parameter out. In particular, don't fill it with random stuff. --OmegaK2 (t|c) 21:14, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
Well using brutal force to guess it via PyPOE. It seem Celestial Raise Zombie Skin, Celestial Raise Spectre Skin, Arcane Raise Spectre Skin had inconsistent naming pattern, but seem the data are from PyPOE Exporter, all i need to do is c&p and did not need to judge. Neokowloon (talk) 20:35, 7 October 2019 (UTC)


Please, someone need to be review all his MTX article creation. He made up false meta id and item description. He should use PyPOE but did not. Wrangler Frostblink Effect had been fixed for example. If he did not answer talk page which should other editor do? Neokowloon (talk) 01:21, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

Niightblade(t) — I would guess that you 1) assume the edits were made in good faith, 2) be patient, 3) try not to use an accusatory tone in your communications 4) help fix the problem if/when you can.
Well, there is quite a lots of MTX from Frontier Mystery Box. It need someone else to re-run the PyPoE to check the meta id and in turn the exported data are valid. High probably he just guess the naming pattern and guess the parameter values, instead of just c&p the --write file. For example, Wrangler Frostblink Effect obviously not a Flame Dash skin, nor for Dash. Special:Diff/557694 Neokowloon (talk) 04:12, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

Quest rewards wrong

It seems that the last data import by the bot was broken. A few quests are displaying the wrong rewards, such as A Swig of Hope, which shows gem rewards, when the actual rewards are just rings (checked in-game). Deal with the Bandits is displaying rewards of belts and flasks, which it certainly doesn't offer, and the weirdest of all are A Fixture of Fate and Sever the Right Hand which the wiki currently says grant "Scroll of Wisdom (0-linked)".

The data in Module:Quest_reward/data/quest_rewards for one of the entries in A Fixture of Fate seems to state that the item granted is a Scroll of Wisdom with 3 un-linked white sockets.

--Kiloku2 (talk) 00:47, 16 December 2019 (UTC)

They must have changed something how those rewards work or no longer use the client side file. It does indeed show those strange rewards. I'll look into a potential fix. --OmegaK2 (t|c) 15:05, 16 December 2019 (UTC)

Taste of Hate / Dying Sun new art assets

I have Uploaded the newer art versions of both of the flasks onto the TALK pages of both articles. https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Talk:Taste_of_Hate and https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Talk:Dying_Sun

I'm unsure on how to actually put them into the template or replace them in where the template draws from in order to have the updated arts properly display on the main wiki page. Both edits have transparent backgrounds in order to fit onto the dark background of the wiki and should be fine, size-wise. If anybody is able to teach me how do to this, or simply do this themselves, this would be greatly appreciated. I didn't want to muck around with templates because I know that very big mistakes can happen there and break various things, so I'm playing it safe and asking for help. Thank you.

The mod table in Unnerve, Intimidate, Culling strike display "generation type" as "flask" or "item" instead of affix . Neokowloon (talk) 12:07, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

The generation type error should be fixed. Was a copy/paste error. The culling strike issue has more to do with the where clause. of the Conquestof the Conquest
Culling Strike
has mod_stats.id = kill_enemy_on_hit_if_under_10%_life which does not contain "culling strike". An easy fix is to change the where query to mods.stat_text instead of mod_stats.id. --Illviljan (talk) 12:21, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

Unique Maps

Since Unique Maps also had different tiers, are there any template/layout guide to create the new infobox for the current series? Lack of article also caused the Underground Sea Map#Unique versions display not properly.

Also the content seem need centralize treatment like base map, since Oba's Cursed Trove (Atlas of Worlds) and Oba's Cursed Trove (Betrayal) all have their own version of layout but in fact they should the same. Neokowloon (talk) 12:43, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

Well for now you can just copy paste the previous one to the new one and adjust what's needed. Though with the maps changing every time I feel perhaps it might be better to ditch the league-specific unique map pages post atlas of worlds since they don't really change much. We can keep doing the same thing we do for bases though for consistency, but it's a bit problematic to automate via bot since the map modifiers need to be copied and can not be read from the data in the same fashion (I've been working on something for it though). --OmegaK2 (t|c) 16:32, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

List of mods

Is it good to create a sub-list of mod for each influence?

Such as in article title such as List of Shaper mods, List of Elder mods, and for Redeemer, Warlord Hunter etc.

It can be easily written by using query.

Separate question, i am trying to fill up the List of legacy modifiers, but how to write a query to list out Elder/Shaper mod and spawn weight = 0 for all kind of base? (i.e. legacy mod, since patch 3.9 retired a lot of hybrid socketed gem are supported by mods) Neokowloon (talk) 13:17, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

Sure you can add those pages. Should probably use lowercase letters though, i.e. List of shaper mods, as that's how we do it on all the other pages. For those legacy mods I suppose you want to make sure all spawn_weights.weight are 0 for that modifier right? This might do it:
{{Modifier table
|q_tables = mod_stats, spawn_weights
|q_join = mods._pageID=mod_stats._pageID, mods._pageID=spawn_weights._pageID
|q_fields = SUM(spawn_weights.weight)
|q_where = mods.name LIKE "%Shaper%"
|q_having = SUM(spawn_weights.weight) = 0
|q_groupBy = spawn_weights._pageID

Ground effect pages. Two capital letter or only the first ?

Ok, it seem yet another inconsistency by GGG. The name of debuff icon of Chilled Ground is "Chilled Ground" but in in-game description , it is "chilled ground" (both lower cap). However, for Caustic Ground, Desecrated Ground, both capitalized.

Even more inconsistency for "Burnt Ground". There is two debuff icons depend on the color of the fire (yellow or orange) which seem intended, but the name of the ground effect on the icon is "Burnt Ground", while in the description "burning ground". I haven't check the rest of the effect.

So, should we set up a rule inside wiki (as it affect the highlight when auto-generating link by the bot for Pypoe data)

Also, i moved Chilled ground to Chilled Ground as well as c&p move again for Desecrated Ground, feel free to fix it back. (While Fungal Ground was created as both capitalized)

Lastly here is the pics. https://imgur.com/a/TivTF98

Neokowloon (talk) 00:28, 1 March 2020 (UTC)

On the wiki we try to follow the rules of capitalization in English. We name an article in sentence case if it refers to a concept (common noun), and in title case if it refers to a proper noun. In many cases, this is different than the capitalization used in game, since the game capitalizes words to add emphasis to them as game mechanics or game concepts. For example, Increased, Reduced, More and Less are all capitalized in game. These are not proper nouns that should be capitalized in English. As for chilled ground, burning ground, etc., these should not be capitalized in English either because they are concepts, not proper nouns. —Vini (t|c) 04:50, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
So that only few articles need to be fixed back (including c&p move). But how about Brunt ground v. Burning ground? Neokowloon (talk) 05:03, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
That's a naming inconsistency. It is most often referred to in game as burning ground, so the main article should be burning ground, and burnt ground redirect to the main article. —Vini (t|c) 05:08, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
And forgot to ask , the status icon infobox, should 100% follow in-game or else? (e.g. "Chilled" v Chill; Chilled Ground v. Chilled ground) Neokowloon (talk) 05:23, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
For the status icon infobox, you should follow how it appears in game. —Vini (t|c) 05:27, 1 March 2020 (UTC)

Desperately need to set up Manual of Style / rule for "Version history" section in articles of POE wiki


It is not uncommon that entries inside "Version history" is not word to word / 100% c&p from Official POE patch notes.


  • Long Bow - the changes are not documented in the patch notes word by word (the original wording is: "* Critical strike chance has been reworked on all weapons. It is no longer coupled with Intelligence requirements as tightly as it was. Most weapon types now have a higher critical strike chance option in their sequence.")
    • Personally, I would add "(undocumented)" or "(not in patch notes)" for those changes. Someone else use "unlisted change" in Toxic Delivery
  • Quite a lot of entry are using “Introduced to the game” instead of actual wording (Added 16 new Unique Items) or "added 3d art" instead of full sentence from the patch note (Version 3.0.0 items as well)
  • This edit : Special:Diff/580094 by an admin or this edit Special:Diff/595604 (to be fair, the latter not using whole paragraph do confusing on what is "this item" or "the rest of the changes.")
  • Or these edits that adding additional note on version history
  • Patch notes mentioned changes in item A, B, C and D. At the specific page for the item, is shorten to “# change on this item”, with change of comma to full stop and/or omitting words. E.g. the bleed change from Version 3.0.0 for unique items; changes in Maraketh claw from Version 2.6.0

Argument: Some new user (User:Shalq) setup a new rule that insists it need to be 100% c&p the whole paragraph and without any alteration. Which my revert (see counterargument 1 for detail) and not discussing cause a ban. Full points of that user are located in User talk:Vinifera7# Version history section.

However, counterargument 1: The paragraph for Scorch and Brittle has 4 sentences. The first is introduction. The sentence is about Scorch only, the third is about Brittle only. The last sentence is for the time/period that affect all 3 alt ailments.

Based on above example in observation section, I don’t see any point to include "change for Scorch" in Brittle article as well as "change for Brittle" in Scorch article. So I removed them (Special:Diff/595416, Special:Diff/595417) This does not involve change comma to full stop but just shorten the paragraph and yes it did not match (not 100% c&p) the patch notes. But the original wording can easily locate by just use “Brittle” as keyword to search instead of whole paragraph to search. In fact, quite a lot of wiki article add further bullet to the changes.

counterargument 2 As admin Vinifera7 also add additional note to the version history (e.g. Hrimsorrow, Death's Harp), I don’t see any harm on adding the 3.6 change on Brittle was actually from 20% chance to 10% chance on top of the bug fix.

(It can be presented better by using ref group=nb/note>, however) As historical value has a merit to mention , as well as yet again observed in other wiki article that those historical value are not added by me (Unwavering Crusade) It seem my addition is legit and logical, all I admitted is did not discuss before first revert Special:Diff/595415)

Policy setting multiple choice

So, base on the arguments and observation

  • Either A. Purge all undocumented change and use 100% c&p wording from patch notes. No extra word or alternation
  • or B. Minor alternation is not allowed, but allow additional footnote
  • or C. Minor alternation is allowed, no additional footnote
  • or D. Minor alternation is allowed, allow additional footnote in form of ref group=nb/note>.

Unless MOS is documented, this argument on the style will continue. And i actually don't mind User:Shalq challenges admin's edits as well on Abyss and Shaper's Presence. Neokowloon (talk) 17:34, 12 March 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for initiating this discussion. I do think we could use some guidelines on writing version history.
A good place to start is to refer to the patch notes, from which changes can usually be copied directly. I wouldn't say that version history should only contain patch notes, but if relevant changes are described in the patch notes it makes sense to copy them over to version history. This allows the changes described in version history to be easily corroborated with the patch notes.
Sometimes additional clarification is needed. As you mentioned, Hrimsorrow and Death's Harp are two examples of this. In this case, the changes that aren't included in the patch notes should be explained in some way, with explanatory text, notes or references.
Vini (t|c) 18:03, 12 March 2020 (UTC)
I suppose I'm more on the side of allowing more freedom to the version history table, and it's not only because of laziness. I don't think we should discourage adding undocumented stuff as this is the only good place for historical mentions. I think a bigger problem is when it is discussed in the main text instead. Having a bunch of "Since x.y.z, [skill] does not apply [old effect], but instead applies ...", "could originally ...", "but they now also appear" being appended somewhere in the main text each league makes it harder and harder to find relevant information about the current game instead.
Yes, we should prefer the proper patch notes whenever possible. Complementing whenever anything is omitted/forgotten in the patch notes. I don't mind there being a lot of info in it as the table can just be set to collapsed by default. --Illviljan (talk) 20:27, 12 March 2020 (UTC)
Just wanted to add my 3 cents, since I've been mentioned in this discussion:
For the record, sir passive-aggressive Neokowloon the infallible, the changes to Brittle and Scorch that you've made were absolutely not as you described here. You removed the old value for scorch (seriously - why?), but left old value for brittle. ON BOTH pages. Also, you didn't bother to edit that part of patch notes in a way that there's no mention of scorch on the brittle page and vice versa (so you still included that junk text which in your opinion had no place there). Thus, they really looked to me like some nonsense edits, hence I've undone them. As Vinifera7 reminded me though, I should use the discussion subpage instead.
Please stop hyperbolizing that version history should be copy-pasted 100% of the time, because sometimes it's unreasonable and you know it. Adding ok, someone said it should use 100% c&p patch note, so use it as the edit summary is childish. Get over it and cooperate.
Is there a rule that "casual editors" absolutely cannot improve upon admins' edits? Not I'm gonna rewrite it in my cool style, but actual improvements. I don't see any problem in the changes that you've made to the aforementioned Abyss and Shaper's Presence pages...
As for keeping historical values - I've made a mistake of removing that reference. I agree that wiki is a good place to accumulate such curiosities, as long as they don't interfere with the description of the actual mechanics in PoE.
Shalq (talk) 05:02, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
Neokowloon's edit summary, "ok, someone said it should use 100% c&p patch note, so use it," does seem a bit like malicious compliance. For the record, we never agreed that you must always copy the patch notes word for word, or that version history may only contain excerpts from patch notes.
What Illviljan and I suggested are sensible ways to approach this. I wouldn't want to discourage people from editing the wiki by having strict rules for things like version history. Some basic guidelines should be enough.
Vini (t|c) 16:07, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, agree with Illviljan this. I though we handled it this way anyway but haven't formalized it as a rule.
Copying the patch notes, and adding things as needed if they were omitted. I like adding (undocumented) in front for clarity. --OmegaK2 (t|c) 21:43, 13 March 2020 (UTC)

Doryani's Delusion (seem solved)

Ok, i tried to use "explicit[i]_random_list" para for Doryani's Delusion (Energy Shield). The infobox is displayed fine, but it break the page at Doryani's Delusion. Need help to fix the code in infobox or just revert it? (For added damage mod i need the server back to live to double check choosing the correct mod, so far i just c&p from other variant ) Neokowloon (talk) 17:16, 13 March 2020 (UTC)

I have already informed OmegaK2 about This, because I did it on the Russian wiki a long time ago and there is the same problem. But perhaps my message is forgotten.--Ruba159753 (talk) 17:28, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
Ok, may be just one drop list may(edit: seem solved by one expandable list for infobox, not two) solve the problem since there is only 6 mods. Neokowloon (talk) 17:32, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
Yeah there is a general problem with 2+ random lists on the same item. I haven't gotten around to fix that, it isn't trivial --OmegaK2 (t|c) 18:08, 13 March 2020 (UTC)

Gems that summon monsters

I've gone through and used the new {{Monster infobox}} for the monster statistics on the gems. Those have been outdated for a long time. I think I've got the correct metadata id for most of them, but it is mostly guesswork.

Those are suspicions. Dexterity totem is the oldest I think and it would make sense for RAT support, snipe is also old, but it's a bit ambigious there since there is also an unreleased "snipe" skill gem. I think it is siege ballista though. The other also kinda fit, but I am unsure about them.

Thoughts? --OmegaK2 (t|c) 22:20, 22 March 2020 (UTC)

If i have time, may be i would view the individual game file. In some file they list out the graphical assets of the skill gems and may have linked to which totems assets the skill called. Neokowloon (talk) 07:31, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

No reply for people keep make up fake meta for a few month

First of all, creating mtx article is good faith edit. But It really seem not that helpful if User:Arrowneus keep make up fake meta id or other fake value for infobox parameters. These data are easily extracted by pypoe (and in case any error, reinstall whole thing; in case any obvious typo, fix it, for example Frostblink not Frost blink not Ice Dash). It seem the user did not want to resolve it by himself by installing pypoe or leave any reply in his talk page. Neokowloon (talk) 11:23, 26 March 2020 (UTC)

Once again, all item description of Purple EyesPurple EyesHelmet SkinChanges the appearance of any equipped helmet to the Purple Eyes. are fake (while Purple Smoking HoodPurple Smoking HoodHelmet SkinChanges the appearance of any equipped helmet to the Purple Smoking Hood. is fine and the same as pypoe extracted values). I guess now it seem more easily to stalk his creation by good faith that cover the infobox with pypoe data every time. Neokowloon (talk) 07:27, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

Unique items with ignite

Hi i went through the wiki page for ignite and the table with unique items seems to be missing atleast a few noticeable the old jewels for Burning Arrow "Pitch Darkness" and "Sudden Ignition" even tho that might be since they are drop disalbed, but it's also missing the "Dyadian Dawn"

i looked into the source and if i understand it correctly it shows every unique with "ignit" in the item mods

item_stats.id like "%ignit%"

so is are there just too many unique with so it can't add them all or is something else the reason? i am really new to the templates and i am not sure i understand them completely

hope this is the right place to ask this

Unique Maps

Should we nuke all the legacy variant and use only one article for each unique map? We don't have another article for unique weapon that have basetype change. Also chancing unique map from legacy base should yield a map that have current mod, not legacy mod. The only thing need to be fixed is Template:Item unique versions, which may need to use a new template for unique map or just figure a way to display unique map correctly in base map article. Neokowloon (talk) 07:46, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

Ok, instead of creating The Vinktar Square (Harvest) i just fixed the infobox with more static code in The Vinktar Square. Also if no one object i just nuke all child article to turn them back to redirect. Neokowloon (talk) 06:08, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
Just probably wiki has lag on Template:Current map series so that The Vinktar Square's infobox still use Delirium as base. Neokowloon (talk) 09:09, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
Since every map from War for the Atlas and after shared the same area id, it seem The Beachhead (Low Tier) (Atlas of Worlds) worth to keep but the rest (all the unique map variant from War for the Atlas and after) can be merged to one article. But it still odd to have legacy mod on some unique map infobox. I should try chancing legacy map base to see the outcome..... Neokowloon (talk) 02:55, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

In my opinion, it makes sense to use jpg for screenshots. The compression of jpg is well-suited for things like photographs, which screenshots resemble. Whereas png is better suited for iconography and situations where you need transparent pixels or precise color transitions. You can use png for everything; the reason you wouldn't want to is because of file size. When it comes to screenshots, you can get an image that looks very good in jpg for much less file size compared to png. —Vini (t|c) 18:40, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

Posting Guides

Is it OK here to create guide pages? Like guide for new players to farm chaos. It should be fact-based objective encyclopedia-like material. For example "metamorth encounters have currency drop option", not something IMHO, such as "Delve is better than maps". Birddance (talk) 13:01, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

There are no rules that forbid people from writing guides. However, there's a concern that guides tend to become obsolete over time with the constantly shifting state of the game. You can always use your own user page (including subpages) for anything you wish. Perhaps we can provide more feedback once we see the guide. —Vini (t|c) 16:20, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Here is what I have in mind: User:Birddance/Guide to making currency
Also would like to ask help on Reddit and PoE forums.
Most things are general info for new players and old players, who don't know all details and useful features. In case anything will be deleted from game or added, it should be reflected in the guide as in Master page for example. Birddance (talk) 11:33, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
So, if no one mind, I will create page Currency creation and trading. Anyway, it is a real game thing, everyone doing in trade league. Why not to have Wiki page on the topic? Everyone welcome to contribute. Birddance (talk) 09:21, 10 July 2020 (UTC)
You might have waited for some feedback. You only published it yesterday, after all. I haven't even gotten around to reading it in full yet. One concern I have on skimming is that the subject matter of the guide isn't focused on one specific thing; rather it's a shotgun spray of different methods for gaining currency. I think the guide could benefit from focusing on either SSF methods or trade methods, or at least by separating them into different sections of the guide. —Vini (t|c) 02:15, 11 July 2020 (UTC)

So we should use Merciless Labyrinth or merciless labyrinth

The context is User:Supernovah insist "merciless labyrinth" is more grammatical correct (and where he already edited the name in Trial of Ascendancy and argue with me why i use Eternal Labyrinth) and following Path of Exile Wiki:Manual of Style . This would affect a lot of article, likes The Lord's Labyrinth use it as proper noun: Cruel/Merciless/Eternal Labyrinth. It need to be form a binding consensus otherwise no good to have an edit war on mentioning every place name in-game to decide it should be proper noun and capitalized or not capitalized . Neokowloon (talk) 12:16, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

No need to be rude about it. In the context in which I used the names of the labyrinths, they were not proper nouns or titles. In this case they should not have their individual words capitalised. It was also not the original intention of that edit. That was to update the article to contain information I was originally after and did not find. This is my usual reasoning to updating an article - to add information I didn't find on it. Supernovah (talk) 12:38, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
So, you argue my usage of "Eternal Labyrinth" is incorrect or not? There are way lot of these place name in-game. The port map, "the coast", "the crossroads". (personally i will certainly use the lab, the mine as short name) Ok, now what you want to discuss that originate from my user talk page. Should i use "eternal labyrinth" or "merciless labyrinth" . Or as i suggested, got a wider discussion on consensus first? Neokowloon (talk) 12:50, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
I have to sleep for now, but like I said it depends on the context in which it is used. As a proper noun or title, then it is capitalised. Specifically if it is a title then all words are capitalised as in "Merciless Labyrinth". As a noun, noun-phrase, or proper noun it would become Merciless labyrinth. The context in which I used them placed a URL over an otherwise normal English phrase which did not contain proper nouns, noun-phrases, or otherwise. Supernovah (talk) 12:55, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
I would say in wiki yes we do "power charge", "physical damage" instead of "Power Charge", "Physical Damage" like in-game but i don't get what new norm you want . Neokowloon (talk) 13:05, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
