slot gear categories

It's possible to put the category appointment into the gear templates we have (Template:Gear-Mob, Template:Gear-Quest, etc) since these templates store the slot in which the item is used as a variable. This might save you quite a bit of work if we can figure out how to do this with the hit/tank/mana/etc part included. --Llanor 12:54, 21 March 2011 (EDT)

Unfortunately, I'm not really very good with templates - most of my wiki edits have really been cut, paste and change jobbies or just filling in blank spaces. As such, I wouldn't really want to mess around with stuff for fear of breaking it... though I guess wiki is very good for unbreaking stuff. I did to figure out a way to link from the gear pages to the slot pages by clicking on the body part, but because they were in the template, I thought it wouldn't work. I guess it might do if there were four different templates (archer/hit/mana/tank). Um... anyway.. if you can figure out a way to make it more useful, then please do go ahead. --Shadowtop 13:25, 21 March 2011 (EDT)
It's possible to add a variable to the existing templates, we could use this var to store 'hit', 'tank', 'mana', etc. After doing this all that would need to be done, is adding a line to the template on each gear page. This seems like the same amount of work but it is a great way of avoiding mistakes. --Llanor 14:05, 21 March 2011 (EDT)
