  • Step 2) Now, copy the syntax of the template.
  • Step 3) To create the page, in the Search Box, you will have to type in the name of the page as it appears in-game. For example, if you are creating a page for the Beta Blades, you would type Beta Blades in the search box.

  • Step 5) Now, paste the template that you copied earlier on the "edit box" when you're editing the page.
  • Step 6) Insert the information of the item in the correct categories. If it is 0 or none, remove the line.

  • Step 8) Now, remember the image name you saved your picture as, and copy it (Including the file format!) in the Image line of the template you used.
