Game data exports will becoming later as the technical changes in addition to regular changes take some more time.


Path of Exile Wiki

Support Gem Pages

Support Gems should have individual pages for discussion of their varied uses I think. Especially the really interesting ones like Trap and Totem. Ionface 06:40, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Agreed, each support gem will need to have it's own page, which details how the gem levels alongside possible best uses. Skill pages should also have a section about possible good support gems for that skill. Iamacyborg 17:44, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
Sounds fine, as long as the list of gem uses does not become too subjective or too specific (e.g. "Chain is awesome with Ethereal Knives"). Better to stay as general as possible. Adalace (talk) 01:14, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Skill Navbox

Just thinking whether or not it'd be worth creating a navbox for skills to insert in all the relevant pages, anyone have an opinion on it? My only misgivings are that it might end up being pretty huge and slightly complicated as a result. Iamacyborg 15:21, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

I think it just needs a link back to this page, and this page needs more categories and information. Ionface 11:24, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
I'll have a think about the best way to set something like that up, and possibly play around with a navbox as well just to see what it might look like, they're pretty easy to set up. Iamacyborg 14:15, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

Skill Videos

Instead of an image thumbnail, it might be worth having a short 10 or so second video demonstrating the skill on relevant pages. Similar to what the Sacred Wiki does Anyone have any opinions on the matter? Iamacyborg (talk) 18:13, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

I am a fan of video on wiki, and there could also be animated gifs in the place of the static images we have now. Ionface (talk) 15:52, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Compatibility Matrix ?

I think we should have a compatibility matrix between Support Gems and Skill Gems. This way it's easy for people to know what they can link up. Is this already on the wiki somewhere? Should it have it's own page or be part of this page? --AnnanFay (talk) 05:24, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

I just uploaded a spreadsheet of all the skills relative to what attributes they need(red gems needing agi or int etc). I will start working on something like this tomorrow. --Battlemaster (talk) 20:46, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
I incorporated your spreadsheet data into some new sortable tables for the active skills. I left the type out because I think these qualifiers can be included as part of a compatibility matrix like AnnanFay was talking about. --Angelflonne (talk) 23:48, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
The Iron Grip (and Point Blank) support gem links to the passive skill and not to the actual support gem site, but that's a fault of the template --Goliath (talk) 08:06, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Gem values

Current gem values are way off. I'm in process of fixing the ones I've personally leveled (18 total, currently). I suspect the values won't be very accurate for some time. --Xhopesfal24 (talk) 20:35, 30 January 2013 (UTC)


I'd not expect that the information about changes from (older) patches are really that useful/neccessary to put them explicit on each itemized aspect of the game, especially since these informations are already (browsable + seekable) available in the specific patch notes pages. --Mr.Cee (talk) 12:16, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

I've already added the version history to every skill and i'm not going to remove them again (if everyone thinks like that feel free to remove it). I know that these informations are not that important that's why i'm going to collapse the table if they are getting too long. --Goliath (talk) 12:20, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
I actually really like having that information available on those pages. They definitely belong there. Iamacyborg (talk) 12:25, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
It's much better to have all pertinent information readily available on each respective page rather than having to go look for it. The version history for skills is extremely useful and should definitely stay. I've seen the same thing on other Wikis and I've always found it quite helpful especially when I've been away from the game for a time.--FaceLicker (talk) 13:13, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
I completely agree. I like how Goliath did the version history on each skill page. —Vinifera7 (talk) 14:47, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

Gem quest rewards

I'll admit I don't want to be the one to wrestle a table this large, but wouldn't it be nice to have a table displaying the gem quest rewards per class? Here's an example of the sort of thing I'm talking about: Adalace (talk) 01:10, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

You mean something like Quest Rewards ?--Goliath (talk) 01:19, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Keywords / Classifications

I'm thinking about changing the keywords so that they will link to a category with skills of the same keyword / classification rather than to the explanation. The explanation could still be linked from within the category "Lightning skills are influenced by Lightning" etc. I think user should be able to find skills of the same type, which is currently not that easy. For example, Tempest Shield would be in Lightning and Spell--Goliath (talk) 18:35, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

I completely agree!!! -AnnanFay (talk) 22:04, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

So i had this in my mind: [[:Category:Fire|Fire]] for both active skills and support gems, [[Category:Fire skills]] for active skills and [[Category:Fire support gems]] for support gems. I placed [[:Category:Fire|Fire]] in the skill template and another one ([[Category:Fire skills]]) at the bottom of the page. Now the problem is that i somehow thought that [[:Category:Fire|Fire]] would create a category and place the skill inside, but it isn't of course... I don't want Category:Fire and Category:Fire skills at the bottom of the page because that's too much and might be confusing. One solution for this problem is to place Category:Fire skills and Category:Fire support gems into Category:Fire but then there's no complete gem list... --Goliath (talk) 18:36, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

Ignoring the functionality, I think it would make the most sense to categorise them under Category:Skill, Category:Fire, Category:Spell, etc. (or plural equivalents). Something being a skill gem is independent from it being a fire gem or strength/red gem so making combined categories (Fire strength support gems) or sub categories is confusing.
Functionally I'd like to be able to list pages which lie in the cross section of two categories. Fire+Skill, Fire+Cold (for looking up gems to go in Heatshiver), Skill+Dexterity, etc.
We can do the first easily. Maybe there is an extension which provides the functional part? -AnnanFay (talk) 20:53, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
By cross section I really meant intersection! There's a category of extensions which seem related. -AnnanFay (talk) 20:57, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
Anyone have thoughts on this? -AnnanFay (talk) 16:45, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
The category tree extension would allow us to create lists of all pages in a category, so we could add a list of Category:Spell support gems, Category:Area of effect support gems, Category:Projectile support gems on the Fireball page without relying on templates (it would help the navbox too). No intersection, but we mostly need a list of support gem working with Projectile or Spell or Fire attribute, not Spell and Fire. Kalos (talk) 17:12, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Unique "Skills gems in this item are support by ____" affects manacost


Should this info be added here, on the unique items page, or both? --Lazyfulness (talk) 02:00, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
