Wiki Policy

Below is the official policy of the Dauntless Wiki. All editors must adhere to these rules.

The Dauntless Wiki is an official wiki, run by players and managed by Phoenix Labs developers.

  1. Anything that is against the Phoenix Labs TOS is not allowed on the wiki.
  2. Vandalism, spam, and disruptive editing are prohibited.
  3. The format of the wiki is managed by the administrator staff and Phoenix Labs developers. As this wiki reflects their product, Phoenix Labs has the authority to change the wiki in any way they deem necessary. Unapproved format changes may be reverted or altered at their discretion.
  4. This wiki uses Canadian English, as it is the main language used in Dauntless. Do not change text to their American equivalents.
  5. Data and/or files obtained through data mining, hacking, reverse engineering, or anything of that sort is forbidden on the wiki. It is disrespectful towards the dev team and will not be tolerated.
  6. Only official videos and videos from the Dauntless Partner Program are to be used on the wiki.

Any user found in violation of this policy will incur a minimum ban of two weeks, with the maximum penalty of being permanently banned from the wiki. Any and all information pertaining to said bans will be immediately provided to Phoenix Labs and may result in being banned from Dauntless.

Creating a Page

Creating a page can be done through the above input box or by searching for a non-existent page using the search bar on the top right.

If the page already exists, you'll be redirected to it instead.

General Editing Guidelines

  • Use proper grammar and spelling. Stick to Canadian English in order to be consistent with the game.
  • Don't vandalize pages.
  • Avoid editorializing -- stick to facts.
  • When uploading photos, stick to a naming convention that is consistent with precedent.
  • If you have a question, feel free to ask in the Discord #wiki-discussion Channel.

Style Guidelines

  • When typing an element, use the Element Templates (may not work in some "Description" fields in Cargo if the field is not wikitext):
  • When typing a rarity, use the Rarity Templates:
    • {{Epic}} = Epic
    • {{Legendary}} = Legendary
    • {{Artifact}} = Artifact
  • When indicating an amount of currency in a chart, use the Short Form Currency Templates followed by a number:
    • {{Rams}} 100 = Rams Icon 001.png 100
    • {{Platinum}} 200 = Platinum Icon 001.png 200
    • {{Steel Marks}} 300 = Steel Marks Icon 001.png 300
      • Additionally, values presented like this should be left-aligned, in order to align the icons.
  • When indicating an amount of materials in a chart, use the Crafting Item Templates (text & icon) followed by a number as shown below:
    • {{Apex Riftfang}} (x3) = Apex Riftfang Icon 001.pngApex Riftfang (x3)
    • {{Unstable Nullhide}} (x7) = Unstable Nullhide Icon 001.pngUnstable Nullhide (x7)
    • {{Riftsoul Shard}} (x2) = Riftsoul Shard Icon 001.pngRiftsoul Shard (x2)
      • Additionally, values presented like this should be left-aligned, in order to align the icons.
  • When indicating a number which is one thousand or greater, include the proper comma every third non-decimal digit:
    • 1,000
    • 1,500.34
    • 2,327,500
    • If making a template that pulls from Cargo Tables, the magic word {{formatnum:}} can help parse values, e.g. {{formatnum:123456789.99}} produces 123,456,789.99.
  • When indicating a date, use a written form of the date as Month Day, Year in a sentence, or use a numerical form of the date according to ISO 8601 (YYYY-mm-dd) in a chart.

To-do List

A Dauntless wiki roadmap can be found here.

Cargo Templates

Many articles on this wiki have their data stored in Cargo Tables. Cargo stores data in tables, and each time a template is called, a new row is added to the table. To add new information to a cargo table, all you need to do is fill out the template with the relevant fields within that page. The documentation on each template page will give further instructions for populating it.

Useful Templates

To use templates, place the name of the template in-between surrounding braces e.g. {{NoticeUnconfirmedContent}}.
