Template-info.svg Documentation The documentation below is transcluded from Template:Modifier/doc. (edit | history)

This template is used to display a weapon's or tool's best modifier.


{{ modifier | <item category> | plural = y/yes (optional) }}

Item category1

Plural page titleplural
Set if the page title is plural, e.g. on "Luminite Axes".

This template prefers inline formatting of parameters.

The first parameter may also be omitted, in which case the template will automatically attempt to determine the correct item category. It takes the page name as the item by default; use the $item or $itemid parameters to overwrite this. However, note that a first parameter should always be provided on regular item pages, since this functionality is merely an aid for selecting the category. The algorithm may fail in certain cases and it is not optimized for usage within an article.


Code Result
{{modifier|melee|plural=1}} Their best modifier is Legendary.
{{modifier|item=Wand of Sparking}} Its best modifier is Demonic or Deadly, with the former granting improved critical strike chance and the latter granting improved speed. It cannot get modifiers that affect knockback or mana cost.
