Template documentation (for the template shown above, sometimes hidden or invisible)

Using this template on an article page creates a formatted information box in the upper right-hand corner of that page. It will also be called by {{item}} to display that information box as a tooltip. You can supply any number of the optional parameters to display specific text in the tooltip.

This template is meant to reflect the display of an ingame-tooltip.

Required Minimum Syntax

The following parameters are required for every tooltip template, and the entire block should always be the first thing on an article page. However, without any further parameters, only an empty box will display:



For {{item}} to work, the following minimum parameters are required:

Display modes

Passing |mode= to the template (and, by extension to the item page syntax, any item page) affects how the template renders the tooltip. There are several valid mode values:

mode=home / mode=away
Displays the tooltip as if on its item page (home) or not on its item page (away). If mode is omitted, the appropriate one of those is chosen by default.
mode=link / mode=imlink
Return an item link (link) or an item link with an image (imlink) instead of the tooltip.
mode=arg (in combination with |arg=)
Returns the value of the arg parameter defined in the tooltip of that page, or "--" if it is not defined.

"type", "slot" and "reqprof" values
