This page is a style and formatting guideline on GuildWars Wikia.

It has general acceptance among editors and is considered a standard to which articles should adhere. However, it is not set in stone and should be treated with common sense and the occasional exception.

An armor art article documents an armor's particular artwork, where it can be acquired and the materials required to craft it. It should not be confused with an armor function article which documents the stats of different armor types and may not share the same look.

General guidelines

An armor art article is generally made up of four basic sections:

  • the armor art box
  • description
  • acquisition
  • galleries

When naming the article put the profession name before the armor type as in Profession Type armor (e.g. Mesmer Ascalon armor). If the art type is prestige but carries the same name, call the article Profession Elite Type armor (e.g. Mesmer Elite Enchanter's armor).

If necessary you may separate sections with the clear template: {{clear}}

Syntax

The following may be copied and pasted to create a new article. Just make changes and fill in information where necessary. Instructions on how to use templates and more detailed information about each section can be found below.

Armor art box

Template:Armor art box

{{armor art box | art = 
                | type = 
                | materials = 
                | campaign = 
                | campaign2 = 
                | campaign3 = 
                | name = 
                | elite = 
                | event = }}
art
The name of the armor art (e.g. Ascalon, Krytan). Not to be used with function specific armor.
type
The name of the armor art (e.g. Sacred, Knight's). For use by function specific armor (armor art with only one attached function and profession).
materials
The materials required to craft this armor (e.g. Cloth [[Cloth]] or [[Bolt of Cloth|Cloth]]).
campaign
The first campaign the armor art is available in (e.g. Prophecies, Factions, Nightfall, Core). Core armor is Obsidian only.
campaign2
The second campaign the armor art is available in (e.g. Factions, Nightfall). May be omitted if not required.
campaign3
The third campaign the armor art is available in (e.g. Nightfall). May be omitted if not required.

Armor's name to override type or art. Optional, only use when necessary.
elite
Yes or no. If omitted defaults to no.
event
Yes or no. If omitted defaults to no.

Description

A brief description of this art and which campaigns it can be found in.

Note here if the armor is elite. If there is a non-prestige version of it, include a link to that. Also link to the art's main page (for example Krytan Armor).

This should be a level two heading.

Crafting

Level two heading.

Campaign

List the campaign the armor is available in as a level three heading. It is not necessary to make this heading a link.

Under this heading should be a crafting table that lists the locations, NPCs, cost in gold, required materials and total for the armor for this particular campaign.

The syntax below shows a table with four crafters who create armor of varying AL. If you want to learn more about tables read the editing guide.

Headgear/Chest/Hands/Legs/Feet
Replace this with the appropriate armor piece (for example a Mesmer chest piece is called "Attire" while a Warrior chest piece is a "Cuirass").
Location
The location this armor can be acquired. If there are several locations for the same armor rating, separate the locations with: <br>.
Crafter
The name of the armor crafter. If there are several crafters for the same armor rating, separate them with: <br>.
Cost
Fill in the appropriate cost and materials required. For information about how to use the cost template seen below, read this.

Note: Armor with maximum armor rating should have a "lightgreen" background. Ascended armor should have a "gold" background. Armor with armor ratings below maximum should have backgrounds in alternating "lightgrey" and white (with white directly preceding a lightgreen or gold row).

If there are any additional notes specific to crafting, they may be added beneath the table.

''Note:''

Trading

If this armor can be gotten from a collector include this section as a level two heading. If there is no collector it should be omitted.

This section is a separate module for inclusion into the article:

{{:Profession Type Armor/Collector}}

This is because it will also be included into the Collector Armor quick reference page for the corresponding profession. (See profession specific armor here).

Fill in the following information.

Armor piece
Use the name of the armor piece (for example "Stylish Attire", "Stylish Gloves").
Stats
Fill in the stat bonuses from each piece (for example "Energy regen +1").
Region
For each row fill in the geographic region the collectors can be found in (for example "Kryta", "Kaineng City").
Armor
The corresponding armor level for the regional reward.
Collector items
This information can be found here. (Example: 5 Charr Carvings).
Alternate each row with lightgrey and white, and the row containing armor with max AL should be lightgreen. The lightgreen row should be preceded by a white row.

Note: If you require help with expanding this table you may like to read the editing guide.

Galleries

There are two separate gallery modules for each armor art type, one male and one female. This means that separate articles must be created for each gender using the main articles name followed by "/Male" or "/Female". For example: Mesmer Ascalon armor/Female.

Each gallery module has three sections: overview, component view and colorable areas.

This section does not require a heading as it will be in the module. Include the module into the article like this:

{{:Profession Type armor/Female}}

See GuildWars Wikia:Style and formatting/Armor/Art gallery for further details about this section.

Notes

If required, a level two heading called "Notes" may be added at the end for any relevant information not already included in the article. If this section is blank, omit it entirely.
