This is the documentation page, it should be transcluded into the main template page. See Template:Documentation for more information

This template is used to add drop information to infoboxes.


The minimum drop number should always be filled in for common drops, even if it is always a single drop. Uncommon drops are always a single drop, however have different chances to drop, so the chance (in percentage) should be used instead. Rare drops are also always a single drop, but all have the same drop chance, so no drop number should be added.

Each drop is a list item, and so multiple can be entered on separate lines with no need for line breaks. In infoboxes, the drop fields have the list-style-none class, which hides the bullet point.
