This article documents the common practices, processes, and formatting for hero challenge articles.

Naming[edit]

The name of the article for a hero challenge has the following conventions:

  • Communing - Interacting with an object and finishing the dialogue.
    • Use the {{Object infobox}} for the hero challenge.
    • Use the name of the object as given in the dialogue (i.e. do not include [Hero Challenge]).
    • The hero challenge will be categorized on the object page.
  • Sparring - Talking to an NPC starts an event where you must defeat the NPC
    • Use the {{Event infobox}} for the hero challenge.
    • Use the name of the event: Hero Challenge: <Event name>
    • Use the NPC infobox to describe the NPC.
    • The hero challenge will be categorized on the event page.
  • Vanquish - Interacting with an object starts an event where you must defeat the an enemy or group of enemies.
    • Use the {{Event infobox}} for the hero challenge.
    • Use the name of the event: Hero Challenge: <Event name>
    • Use the object infobox to describe the object.
    • The hero challenge will be categorized on the event page.
  • Consumable - Interacting with an object gives an item that, when consumed, completes a hero challenge.
    • Use the {{Item infobox}} for the hero challenge.
    • Use the name of the item.
    • Use the object infobox to describe the object.
    • The hero challenge will be categorized on the item page.
  • Special - Certain hero challenges involve unique actions such as going through enough dialogue from an object but can usually be described with one of the above.

In general, the name of a hero challenge should be that which directly awards the hero point.

Common elements[edit]

Communing dialogue[edit]

See also: Guild Wars 2 Wiki:Dialogue formatting

The dialogue for communing style hero challenges usually follows the same basic template, of which between hero challenges, only the major dialogue/description changes. A basic template for the dialogue section of a communing style hero challenge is as follows:

;Before completion
:{{dialogue icon|herono}} <!-- Dialogue description for this hero challenge -->
:{{dialogue icon|more}} ''Commune with this place of power.''
:{{dialogue icon|end}} ''Leave this place.'' <!-- If an end dialogue appears only, as not all communes have this line while uncompleted. -->

;After completion
:{{dialogue icon|heroyes}} <!-- Dialogue description for this hero challenge. Note that this is the same as the before completion dialogue, usually. -->
:{{dialogue icon|end}} ''You've gained all you can from this place of power.''
