Welcome to Project:Creatures, which concerns Creatures (Mobs) found in the game, including those documented in Instances.

Guideline

New creatures can be created with the Create new creature tool. This uses Template:Creature as the new and improved template. Boilerplate:Creature shows what additional information can be implemented on the creature's article.


NEVER create a category for creatures. This is done automatically in the {{Creature}} template. If you find yourself with a stub/mob instead of a location category that's because that place hasn't been added to the template yet. Categories for creatures are this: Region creatures or Instance mobs. Again this is done inside the template and should never be done on the article itself. Also NEVER link the location inside the template.


Scope

All articles found in the Creatures category tree.


All related templates, boilerplates and Creature changes in general.

Plans

The goal of this project is to have all creatures found in-game documented. This should probably be done by going through region after region and adding all creatures found.

There are also some "shorter-term" plans:

  • Help pages: these need to be expanded with information on how skirmish mobs, instance mobs and bosses should be entered.
  • Categorization: creatures should only be categorized by the template. Lately a lot of location subcategories have been created. These should all be removed and the creatures' names added to the appropriate location page.
