Parameters[edit]

All parameters are optional.

name
Location name. Defaults to {{PAGENAME}}
hearts
Number of renown hearts
waypoints
Number of waypoints
points-of-interest
Number of points of interest
hero challenges
Number of hero challenges
vistas
Number of vistas
map
Map image (do not include the "File:" prefix). Defaults to '{{PAGENAME}} map.jpg'
map text
Optional. Defaults to "Map of {{{name|{{PAGENAME}}}}}". As an example, this could be used on zone articles with multiple layers to label that the particular area is on the Depths level.
levels
Depends on the type used, see as follows
Zone: The level range for the zone. Separate minimum and maximum levels with a single hyphen "-", e.g. 60 - 70
Area: The effective level of the area. For the case of dungeon areas where there is an explorable level and a story level, separate values with commas.
type
The type of location. Use plain text with no wiki-links.
Available options: "Continent", "Region", "Zone", "Area", "City", "Guild hall", "Dungeon", "Activity", "Raid", "Point of interest", "Landmark", "Jumping puzzle", "Mini-dungeon", "Guild puzzle", or "Instance".
within
The parent location of the location being described. Use plain text with no wiki-links. For zones, this should be a region; for areas, this should be a zone; for everything else, this will usually be an area. If within is an area or zone, the parent of within will be displayed underneath in small text.
connections
Other locations that this one has connections to. Usually only specified on zones. Separate multiple connections with <br> and add your own wiki-links. The cardinal direction is usually specified in brackets after the zone name; (N), (S), (E), (W), (NE), etc. In the case of a portal, add (portal) instead of direction. See the Queensdale example below.
pets
Ranger-tameable juvenile animals. Like "connections" above, separate with <br> and provide links manually. Include for zone infoboxes, redundant for location infoboxes (see discussion page).
objectives
Defaults to "n". Only set equal to "y" if the location has map objectives that contribute towards world completion (core tyria).
loading-screen
Loading screen image (do not include the "File:" prefix). Defaults to '{{PAGENAME}} loading screen.jpg'
screenshot
Screenshot (do not include the "File:" prefix). Defaults to '{{PAGENAME}}.jpg'
sstext
Screenshot text
locator
Use to specify the SVG locator image if the page name doesn't match the filename. Defaults to '{{PAGENAME}} locator.svg'
coordinates
Optional. The X and Y coordinates for the location. Displays an interactive map with a marker at the given location. e.g. [12345, 31321]. Only displayed for pages with the "type" set equal to "Point of interest" or "Landmark". See Template:Infobox map for details on how to capture coordinates.
localtiles
Optional. If set, uses local wiki tiles instead of the API raster tiles. See Category:Map raster tiles.
id
The game ID for the location, displayed as a game link. Only shown for points of interest, but should also be set on Zone articles as this allows Template:Zone map v2 to work.
categorize
"y" or "n" to turn on/off categorization. Default is on for main namespace articles and off for others. If using "status", don't set this parameter.
status
Status of content. Only set if not currently obtainable ingame, displays relevant notice. Available options: "historical", "future", "unimplemented", "current" (default). See {{infobox status}} for options.
status notes
Additional notes to explain the given status. For example, if the content was only available during a specific release.
status date
Optional. Sets the date of the update that marked this skill as historical (in YYYY-MM-DD format).
requires
The expansion or living world season required to access the content. Displays a notice of the release. See {{infobox requires}} for options.
