FFXIV:Mob Action template tutorial


add a mob action

The Gamer Escape templates are constructed to be as user-friendly as possible, but because of some software limitations there are sometimes some unintuitive fields.

The action template is used for all mob weaponskills, spell, cures, abilities.

Do not use this template for player actions. Head over to the FFXIV:Action template tutorial for that tutorial.

We've placed the entire item template below and explain each line, explaining what it's for and what data you can enter for it. The template lines are located in the boxes surrounded by the dashed line with the description for it underneath.

Unless otherwise indicated, you do not need to use any wiki coding (i.e. brackets).
