Creating a Page[edit]

Creating a page can be done through the above input box or by searching for a non-existent page using the search bar on the top right.

If the page already exists, you'll be redirected to it instead.

Editing Guidelines[edit]

  • Refer to Dragalia Lost Wiki/Update Day Checklist
  • Use proper grammar and spelling
    • Stick to American English, in order to be consistent with the game.
  • Don't vandalize pages
  • Avoid editorializing -- stick to facts
  • Use Quick Icon Templates when possible, in order to stay consistent with the rest of the wiki.

Style Guidelines[edit]

  • When indicating an amount of currency in a chart, use the Quick Icon Template (icon only) followed by a number:
    • Icon Diamantium.png 40
    • Icon Wyrmite.png 40
    • Icon Resource Mana.png 40
    • Icon Resource Eldwater.png 40
      • Additionally, values presented like this should be left-aligned, in order to align the icons.
  • When indicating an amount of materials in a chart, use the Quick Icon Template (text + icon) followed by a number:
  • When referring to a quantity of currency, materials, etc. within a sentence, use the Quick Icon Template (text + icon), with the number preceding it:
    • It will cost you 40 Icon Diamantium.png Diamantium to perform this action.
  • When indicating a number which is one thousand or greater, include the proper comma every third non-decimal digit:
    • 1,000
    • 1,500
    • 10,000
    • 27,500
    • If making a template that pulls from Cargo Tables, the magic word {{formatnum:}} can help parse values, e.g. {{formatnum:123456789.99}} produces 123,456,789.99.

Acceptable Date Formats[edit]

  • Most templates utilize the magic words {{#time:F d, Y h:i:s A e|}} and {{#time:F d, Y|}} and are thus able to accept a variety of formats which are parsed and stored internally as UTC.
  • The following are accepted: backslashes (2019/1/1), dashes (2019-1-1), most manner of timezones (+9, +9 hours. +0930, JST, GMT +9) and commas in the correct spacing (November 20th, 2019).
  • The following are not accepted and will throw errors: any dots as they cause non integer values, including dot spacing (2019.1.1) and specifying timezones in non integer (+9.5).
  • If no timezone is specified e.g. October 04, 2018 06:00, the syntax automatically assumes UTC.

Guide to Data Dumps[edit]

  • Data for creating most pages on the wiki usually are in the Diffs folder of the dump and called wiki_diffs.html.
  • The Monos and ParsedMonos usually have more in-depth data on mechanics.
  • The Sound folder contains new voicelines for released adventurers and dragons.
    • The ingame folder usually consists of voicelines during battle and combat, while the outgame folder mostly has lines inside the castle grounds and on their collection portrait.
    • Voicelines are kept in folders named after their adventurer or dragon ID. For example, the folder vo_chr_110386_01_in contains voicelines of the adventurer Myriam while a folder called vo_drg_210145_01_out contains voicelines of the dragon Gabriel. The IDs of dragons and characters can be found in the Category:Adventurer Images and Category:Dragon Images pages, or identifying characters by recognising their voicelines.
    • Which quote each line corresponds to can be found in the Template:AdventurerStories and Template:DragonStories pages. For example, the VO_CHR_110379_01_OUT_0014 file is Mona's line on entering a co-op room while the VO_DRG_200010_01_IN_0004 file is Chthonius' line upon using his Dragon Skill.
  • The Story folder contains new story data for that dump, mostly in the Stories.html file.
  • The Texture2D folder contains all new images and art for the new dump.
    • The _Unused folder contains smaller and technical images such as summon buttons, skill cut-ins or smaller ability icons.
    • The _Full-Screen_Art folder contains cutscene art during the story and events. (e.g., File:Raid0002 001 base portrait.png).
    • These files generally need some cropping or post-processing done on them before they can be uploaded to the wiki.
    • The _uncategorized folder contains other images including masking layers and dungeon layouts.
    • The Background_Art folder contains images of backdrops used during story episodes.
    • The Story Art folder contains portraits of NPCs, dragons and adventurers.
    • All other folders are mostly self-descriptive and will correspond directly to an existing Image category on the wiki.
  • Finally, if the file you are looking for isn't there, look for it in the jpmanifest.json file that contains all assets from the game at that point. While there are no folders, most file names are kept the same. Further detail on how to open and download these files is outlined in the Datamining page.

To-do List[edit]

High Priority[edit]

  • For Extension:Math add CSS for background after MW 1.36 upgrade Canim (talk) 04:11, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
  • Update privacy policy.
  • Fix models that still use Poly and deprecate the template: Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:3DModel
  • Post-migration bug fixing
    • Re-categorize images that have lost their categories (listed in "Uncategorized Images"). If you're unsure which categories to use, look at the image's old page on Gamepedia. Rest of the files should be ones that previously had no categories now.
    • License images that currently lack a license, and find a way to search for such unlicensed images.
      • List of unlicensed images:
      • 1-4849 seem to be game assets. Need to go through everything after that to verify if game asset or not (e.g. .svg's are not)
    • Re-add TOC to long pages that need it, but currently lack it. It seems to not generate automatically anymore. (Is there a quick way to search for which pages don't have it?)
  • Tutorial pages for wiki contributors; start with Contributor's Guide. Add a section that describes in which categories each image usually found in a datamine belongs to, with examples.
  • Ensure enemy data from 2019-09-19 (High Zodiark) onward has been uploaded. Enemy Data should be separated by date and enemy family for incorporated into Version Changelog.
  • Write EventType summary pages for Story Events, Onslaught Events, and Coliseum Events and describe the mechanics of the event. A changelog section should be kept to keep track of changes over the various iterations and a cargo query to display the events of that type we've had. See Raid Event and Facility Event for examples. Canim44 (talk) 00:00, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Update Template:Event to display up to 6 exclusive Wyrmprints and 8 exclusive Weapons, due to Mega Man event. Template:Event has been updated.
    • Update all cargoqueries utilizing ExclusiveWyrmprint and ExclusiveWeapon to properly handle the list. Canim44 (talk) 00:00, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
    • Modify Module:ListParser with preferred tooltip display. Canim44 (talk) 00:00, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Update damage/heal over time descriptions that still say X.99 seconds to X.9 seconds instead - this was changed in a past update. See Blessings of Destiny for an example. Applied to the Skill and Abilty categories
  • Make MediaWiki:Common.css readable and in a coherent format. Related elements should be labelled and placed in close proximity.
    • Extension:CSS is being deprecated. Current use has been removed and future use should be avoided. Canim44 (talk) 00:54, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
  • Update Template:QuestDisplay with revival bonus(es). Done: New field is SurvivalBonus
    • Add revival bonus(es) to applicable quests: High Dragon Trials, Void Dragons, Void Chimeras, Agito Uprising, etc. Canim44 (talk) 18:12, 26 February 2020 (UTC)
    • Specify # revives required for each bonus. (If possible: Add min/max drops)
