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 quest template is used for all quests, whether main quests, class quests or sidequests. Guildhests and Levequests use different templates - {{ARR Infobox Guildhest}} and {{ARR Infobox Levequest}}, respectively.

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).


{{ARR Infobox Quest
|Name = 

The name of the quest you are adding.

|Type =

Sidequest, Main Scenario Quest, Job Quest, Class Quest or Levequest.

|Level= 

The level of the quest.

|RequiredClasses 1 =
|RequiredClasses 1 Level =
|RequiredClasses 2 =
|RequiredClasses 2 Level =

If the quest is limited by class or job, enter them here. You only need to enter the level of the class if there are multiple class requirements and/or the level requirement is different than the quest level. Mainly used for job quests which have multiple class/level requirements.

|Required Affiliation = 
|Quest Number = 2

If the quest is a main scenario quest for a starter city-state, enter the city-state and quest number here.

|Dungeon Requirement = 

If a quest is unlocked specifically by doing a dungeon, then put the name of that dungeon (duty/trial/raid) here. Do not use for low level story dungeons that are actually unlocked by doing quests associated with the dungeon. While you technically do have to complete that dungeon (and thus, the quest) in order to unlock the next quest in the chain, this should be used only for quests that specifically list it. (see screenshot for example)

|NPC Location = 

If an NPC is in multiple locations (ie: Minfilia), you'll need to indicate the # that ties to the location they will be at to give this quest out. If you don't know what the number is, go to the NPC's page and hit the 'View Source' or 'Edit' link at the top of their page. In the text will be the line "Location 1 =", "Location 2 =", etc. Place the corresponding number here!
