This template is for easier input of Merc Builds to the page.

Note that template upgrades must be ordered by tier, not by faction as the game outputs them. This python program will reorder templates and compute harlequin.

Syntax

{{mercs
|name = 
|desc = 
|character = 
|range = 
|rangeC = 
|require = 
|align = 
|bloodline = 
|template = 
|harlequin = 
|instruction = 
|notes = 
|author = 
|source = }}

Table will be default collapsed when used on article pages.

name, range and align will automatically be added to the title bar when filled. name will also automatically be added to the id parameter (for anchor links). Manually enter and id with id=, if desired.

template will automatically add all spell and upgrade data. Up to 3 spells can be added. Parameters should be entered with a comma[,] between each code (no spaces).

Optional

Description, Characteristics, Range, Requirements, Run time, A2950, Research Template, Alternates, Harlequin Bonus, 13th Upgrade, Instructions, Notes, Author, and Source will not appear if the parameter(s) is empty or omitted.

rangeC can be used to add any additional comments to the range section.

Upgrade Notes

Up to 4 notes or alternate upgrades can be added to each upgrade by using the following parameter:

upgrade[tier][#][a,b,c,d]

Example: upgrade23a

Variants

Up to 4 variations of a build can be added to a template.

Name of variant(s): variant[2,3,4]
Description of variant(s): variant[2,3,4]D
Note: The parameter added to name will automatically be added first. Use variant for its description. If a name other than the build name is desired, use the syntax variantN.
Template of variant(s): template2,3,4

Example: 
|variant3=
|variant3D=
|template3=

Spells will be automatically added with their variant name. Alternate upgrades can be added using the Upgrade Notes syntax above.
