Merge Classic and Renewal

So, Vienna and I want to merge the Classic and Renewal Wikis. Presently, the Renewal Wiki gets Users and Images from the Classic Wiki's database. The whole thing frankly is complicated and I'd rather life be simple.

There's few things that are radically different on these pages that couldn't be solved with a "pre renewal" section of the page. Like Assumptio, or Safety Wall, are two major skill changes that you'd just have both on one page I think. That or a wiki/Assumptio/prerenewal/ page.

I'll be discussing this on Discord as well. Blueness (talk) 20:40, 20 December 2017 (UTC)


We now have a discord that we're using for wiki related stuff. Discord Blueness (talk) 20:31, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

Regular expression magic

Is the prospect of manually updating every article that includes map coordinates with the new {{Navi}} template making you depressed? Then you need new regular expression magic! Automatically insert the {{Navi}} template into articles with just a few key presses! Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Install and then open Atom.
  2. Create a new file (control-N).
  3. Paste the wikitext that you wish to update (control-V).
  4. Press control-F to open the find panel.
  5. Press alt-control-/ to enable regular expressions.
  6. Enter the following into the respective fields:

    Find: \(?\s+'*\/navi +([\w-]+) +(\d+)\/(\d+)'*\s+\)?
    Replace: {{Navi|$1|$2|$3}}
  7. Press Replace all.

For example, any of the following would be replaced with {{Navi|prontera|146|89}}:

  • /navi prontera 146/89
  • (/navi prontera 146/89)
  • ('''/navi prontera 146/89''')

  • Ah, I put a "?" after "/s"...still don't understand why but it work!
    Find: \(?\s?'*?\/navi +([\w]+) +(\d+)\/(\d+)'*\s?\)?
  • If add a "?" after the second "'*" would fail finding. *confusion*
    Find: \(?\s?'*?\/navi +([\w]+) +(\d+)\/(\d+)'*?\s?\)?

  • For finding (dicastes01 175, 217) to be replaced
    Find: \(?\s?'*?([\w]+) +(\d+), (\d+)'*\s?\)?

About this wiki

Welcome to the Renewal Wiki. This wiki is set aside from the main iW database and is geared specifically for Renewal. Please only add in information from the Renewal update. The user database and all pages have been duplicated from the old wiki, meaning that we still have lots of pre-renewal information. Please help get this information up to date. I will be filling in this section with information about how to specifically update pages on this wiki, to keep us all in sync. Thanks to all contributors for helping out! — Steax(Talk) 10:23, 17 September 2010 (MDT)


  • This discussion page can be used for all discussion about how the Wiki works; it's like a global version of Talk pages.
  • This wiki will replace the current wiki when Renewal becomes the default state of all servers. For that reason, things like User pages should be edited here rather than the main wiki.
  • If you're editing a page to bring it up to date with Renewal, but there are parts of the page that you have not modified, please enter this at the top of the unedited section: {{Template:Update_R}}. This will help us know where we still need to bring information up to date.

Changes to Existing Pages

While we're already doing a large-scale edit on pretty much everything, and this wiki is currently still basically a "sandbox", lets use the opportunity to fix our currently cluttered pages. Most importantly, the class pages. Here are my current proposed guidelines for class pages. Please leave your own ideas or comments.

The following are the sections needed in each class. (New types in italics)

  • All: Introduction, Job Change Quest, Skill Table, Equipment Table, Job Bonuses, ASPD Table, Leveling Areas
  • First Class: Stats Table (see below)
  • Second Class and, Transcendent Second Class: General Builds
  • Third Class and final forms of Expanded Classes (TKM, SL, Ninja, GS, SN): Specific Builds

A lot of debate has surrounded whether or not to supply builds in First Class pages. I suggest adding in a Stats Table that lists the 6 basic stats and what role they play for this class, and provide links to the Build sections of the future classes. An Equipment Table is similar to the Skills Table but instead lists various equipment and split up by equipment type. Leveling Areas should link to Places and also take the form of a table.

Another thing I'd like to suggest is moving Class-related articles to their own pages. This includes stuff such as:

  • Forging
  • Brewing
  • Rank System

and so forth. Basically, a class page should only have the sections listed above; anything else gets its own short section, with a link to the main article. This is it from me. I'll probably start editing a page for a guideline on this. Ideas? — Steax(Talk) 10:47, 17 September 2010 (MDT)

I agree those related articles should've been split off originally. I'm not sure how useful an equipment table is going to be if we don't keep them constantly updated with the latest gears though. In the past that rarely happens. --Resplendent 14:05, 17 September 2010 (MDT)
Should equipment tables be implemented in 1st class pages? I think it's useless unless someone stays as a perma-first class. john talk to me 17:26, 25 November 2010 (MST)

Skill Page Guidelines

There's going to be a lot of these, and they're still kind of in a mess. So here are some basic guidelines, taken from previous pages, for making skill pages. (Granted, even the old pages aren't exactly on this guideline. Hopefully this will help in the future.)

A Skill page comprises of: (omit any unnecessary for a skill)

  • The Skill Info template (copy this from another skill and do modifications, or from Template:Skill Info#Usage for a complete syntax)
  • A Description section containing the crucial elements of the skill. What it does, what it requires, what affects it. Also notable mechanics (cannot be dispelled, bypasses DEF for physical skills, etc).
  • A table depicting the effect of different levels of the skill. Any other relevant table follow.
  • Damage Calculation section with mechanics on how damage is derived.
  • Applications section with advice on how the skill usually fits into builds or how it can be used.
  • Notes section including miscellaneous information. Anything else should be placed in subsections here.

Should be good for now. This is to clarify on some current problems on skill pages; important information crucial to the skill should always go in "Description". — Steax(Talk) 20:28, 27 September 2010 (MDT)

I've added a link to the skill info template page in the above (for a more complete list of options for the infobox) --Stalker-ness 21:09, 27 September 2010 (MDT)
