General to-do for major patches

Semi-automatic updates with PyPoE

What can be updated

The following things can be updated with PyPoE for the most part and should not require manual updates: (this subject to pypoe's fork development, as admin OmegaK2 ceased the development of the original)

  • All base item pages (this includes skills, currency, quest items and so on)
  • All area data (Area: namespace)
  • All modifier data (Modifier: namespace)
  • All passive skill data (Passive Skill: namespace)
  • All non-item skill data (Skill: namespace)
    • As a result modifier lists will automatically be updated
    • Unique items that only had numeric changes to their modifiers should receive the new values
  • Certain supported league mechanic data
    • Blight
    • Bestiary recipe data
    • Delve data (costs for equipment, delve scaling etc)
    • Incursion room data
    • Harvest
  • Monster data
  • miscellaneous data
    • crafting bench recipes
    • atlas data
    • pantheon data
    • minimap icon data
    • base monster and character stats

Order of updates

  • First add new item classes, tags, etc to Module:Game, and change CurrentMapSeries template
  • Modifiers
  • Areas
  • other data (skills, passives, etc)
  • Items
    • for maps specifically, it was old series and then new series

What needs to be done after


  • On skill pages, check {{Skill progression}} and add any new stats or fix mistakes
  • Add descriptions of the mechanics
  • Add information about interactions if other support gems if there are any unusual interactions
  • Create pages for new skills if any have been added

Unique items

Manual changes

  • Quest and vendor rewards: check the gem articles has correct vendor / quest reward parameters due to reworks or new introduction
  • Any mechanical reworks
  • Quests
  • NPCs
  • Version history on all relevant pages
  • Pages related to data:
    • Monsters
    • Passive skills


These are current major ongoing reworks on the wiki. Those projects will be removed once finished.

Passive skills

Passive skills and tables are reworked with cargo support.

  • Passive skill article should all use {{Passive skill table}} by now, subject to the export of data by pypoe is completed.
  • pages that uses the old template can be found here (if any) The old template should already be replaced by {{Passive skill table}}.


New area pages need to be take care of Module:Area

  • Area pages can be created with substitution using {{preload area article}}
  • For naming of the pages also see {{preload area article}}
  • Go to the Area: namespace page(s) and add the main_page parameter. Set this to the page you've just created in the main namespace

Divination Cards

Divination cards have been updated to use {{Item}} and the following parameters will need to be set manually:

  • drop_areas - set this to the area ids of where the cards drop, see Template:Item#Finding areas on how to find the id of the area.
  • drop_monsters - set this to the monster metadata ids of which boss the cards drop. Search monsters to find the id by using the monster name
  • drop_text - add text here if there are special conditions (like the zana only card). Do not use for area drops
  • release_version - find and set it to the release version of the card
  • description - potentially some updates to interwiki links, but I've taken care of some basics
  • When done, remove the old text where things drop from page


  • The content of map articles may be scattered in the child articles. Such as X Map (War of The Atlas), X Map (Atlas of Worlds). Content need to be migrate back to the main article X Map by cut and paste (please add note on edit summary to attribute the original contributor; or where the content they are originated from) and add relevant transclusion wiki code : <section end="" />. (View the source code of Desert Spring Map for how to use the wiki code.)
Alternatively, if X Map (Atlas of Worlds) article content outdated info for the reworked map, consider to change the wording and use {{historical content}} to indicate the article is a time capsule for map before rework. E.g. Map:Desert Spring Map (Atlas of Worlds)


Item Acquisition Changes for SEO

Currently, Google excludes many of our pages from search results for having duplicate content (to the old wiki). To fix this, we need to make our pages have different content. Updating the output of Item Acquisition so that it is formatted differently, and uses different (but equivalent) language should help get our pages to not be flagged as duplicates.

Mobile/Responsive Styling

We don't have a mobile style for the site. The desktop styling works, and is better than bad mobile styling, but it is not ideal. There are ways to have certain styles only apply to mobile user agents. I think one of the CSS files only applies to mobile.
