A Template For Guides
March 7, 2017
Hello! and welcome to my template guide for making your own guides on Smitefire
. My name is Zilby
, and I have made quite a few guides on this site. People have generally found my formatting/bbcoding for guides to be one of the easiest to utilize and produce a guide with, so I thought I'd share some of it here as well as some basic information regarding what should and should not go into each section. So let's begin!
Builds & Chapters
Every god guide consists of one or more builds, each with item purchase orders and a corresponding skill order in its header. The body consists of several sections called 'chapters'.
For a guide to be complete, you should have at least one build with 6 items and one filled out skill leveling order. Item purchase orders can be done in several ways, but the most common ways I have done are:
- A primary 6 item build, and a couple alternative 6 item builds for different situations.
- A core item build consisting of 3-5 items that you always build and several options for the other item choices, sometimes with alternate core items as well.
And finally I'll usually have another item purchase order for my choice of actives AKA relics.
For chapters, there are several chapters that are essential, and a few that are accessory, but are very nice to add. I'll list them here, and go into further detail and templates below.
So, without further ado, here are some templates that I use when I go to construct a new guide.
Template - Introduction
For my introductions, I use one of two different templates, a basic and a more complex one. For my basic, I'll use Artemis
and for my more complex, I'll use Bellona
Template - Stats
For stats I use one basic template, in this case I'll be using Sobek
