Common mistakes[edit source]
- Adding double spaces or line spaces
- Changing ability effect/description, see Mass-replace section below
- Changing the unit race to their native game race instead of Brave Exvius' in-game race
- Wrong value for learned abilities minimum rarity. Minimum rarity means the ability can be learned at higher rarity
- Wrong enemy's ability damage type (physical/magical). Elemental damage might not be magical. Their visual can be highly misleading
- Wrong proc information due to Arena / Colosseum random number generator's seed bug

- Useful - Majority of the people will benefit from the information
- Consistent - The look and feel conform to the rest of the site
- Scalable - Little to no edit required after the game content updates
- Simple - Very easy to follow and does not cause information chaos

Wiki Translation[edit source]
We allow anyone to translate the wiki to other language. The steps for translating are as follow:
- Contact the head admin Cysidus about the translation.
- Create a new page with "/languagecode" added to the end of the pagename of the page you wish to translate. i.e. If you want to translate the page "Rain" to French, you would create page "Rain/fr". For a list of language codes, please see this page.
- Translate the text of the page and at the bottom of the page, add the page to the category:
[[Category:LANGUAGECODE translation]]. i.e. Translating a page to French would have
[[Category:FR translation]]added to the bottom of the edit.
- Once core pages has been translated, AND there is a person in place willing to be the head admin of that translated wiki and moderate it, a sub-domain can be set up for that translation. i.e. A translated French wiki would be created at
- We expect the head admin to update and manage this new wiki.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- You will need several people to handle the translation as well as administrating the new wiki.
- Core pages: Main page, all the pages linked in quickmenu, and a handful of item/unit pages.
- The "/languagecode" can either be temporary, or removed once they are transferred to the new wiki.
- Translation status of the game's official language:
- French: Currently being translated by Degas.
- German: Not started.
- Spanish: Not started.
- Korean: Not started.
- Traditional Chinese: Not started.
