Embedding Guild Wars 2 Skills or Items in Posts

Postby Administrator » Wed Sep 19, 2012 11:29 pm

Embedding Guild Wars 2 Skills or Items in Posts:

GWSCR.com takes advantage of gw2db tooltips. To nicely embed skills and other Guild Wars 2 items in posts, simply link to its gw2db address. This can easily be determined by searching gw2db for said skill or item, and then copying/pasting the url from your address bar.

Here are some examples (hover over links and images to see the effect):

This:

Code: Select all

http://www.gw2db.com/skills/1179-ride-the-lightning
Produces:
http://www.gw2db.com/skills/1179-ride-the-lightning

-------------------------------------------------

This:

[url=http://www.gw2db.com/skills/1179-ride-the-lightning]Ride the Lightning[/url]
Produces:

Updated - Sunday, September 30:

In addition to the old methods in the post above, you may now write skill names in between brackets for the same effect.

This:

Code: Select all

[Meteor Shower]
Produces:
[Meteor Shower]

In addition to single skills, you can do the same for conditions, boons, effects, weapon skill sets, weapon swaps, etc.

This:

Code: Select all

[Cripple][Poison][Burning][Aegis][Fury]
Produces:
[Cripple][Poison][Burning][Aegis][Fury]

This (using the first two characters of each profession name):

Code: Select all

[el:scepter/dagger]
Produces:
[el:scepter/dagger]

This:

Code: Select all

[gu:mace/shield|Greatsword]
Produces (using the first two characters of each profession name):
[gu:mace/shield|Greatsword]
(Click on the swap icon to toggle a weapon swap).
