The following are barebone templates you can copy and edit for different types of gameplay. Several wiki templates that are used to display the articles are explained in more details in the section [[MetaBattle:Style Manual#Template Explanation|Template Explanation]].

This is a barebones template of a new build article. Just copy and paste the text on the new page to get started. (Remember to delete the examples!) The following template is taken from the Hambow warrior build:

===Skill and Equipment Variants settings===
Templates are special tools written in plain text which have special meaning to the wiki. Templates accept parameters and output some pretty-formatted information on the page. They usually have the form ''<nowiki>{{Template Name|parameter 1|parameter 2|etc...}}</nowiki>''.
+
This section can be left blank if you don't know any skill variants, if you do however, you can use the following format to explain that "Skill A" can be replaced with "Skill B":
 
 
===MBuild Template===
 
Once you submit a build, it should first be marked under the ''"Draft"'' category. Fill in the correct profession, Heart of the Thorns specialization (leave blank if none), and focus by adding the following code:
 
  
 
<pre>
 
<pre>
{{MBuild
+
* {{Gw2skill|Fireball}} can be replaced with {{gw2skill|Signet of Rage}}.
| profession =
 
| specialization =
 
| designed for =
 
| rating = draft
 
| focus =
 
}}
 
 
</pre>
 
</pre>
  
For example:
+
This code would give the following on the build article:
 +
 
 +
* {{Gw2skill|Fireball}} can be replaced with {{gw2skill|Signet of Rage}}.
 +
 
 +

You can use the following templates if you would like to display food/sigils:
  
 
<pre>
 
<pre>
{{MBuild
+
{{Gw2food|Name-Of-Food}}
| profession = Warrior
+
{{Gw2sigil|Name-Of-Sigil}}
| specialization = Berserker
 
| designed for = Conquest

If you would like to display trait variants, you can use the following code:
  
In this stage the community will criticize and suggest improvements to the build. The build will be located under ''"Draft"'' due to being set to ''"Draft"''. Note that it will take some time (ranging from a few hours to a few days) before it appears on the main page, this is an anti-spam measure.
 
 
Once you have reviewed the comments and made necessary adjustments to the build and think that it's ready for the community to rate it, you should replace '''draft''' with '''test''':

}}
 
 
</pre>
 
</pre>
  
This is where people will rate the build. Once a minimum of 5 votes have been gathered you should replace '''test''' with the following:  
+
The example code would display this on the build article:
  
* Trash (0 – <3.75):

{{Specialization/Shadow Arts|mid|mid|mid}}

'''Variants'''

If it happens that the build is also used in the current meta, a Curator will tag it with the Meta tag.

===Weapon settings===
 +
This section contains two weapon sets, first and second weapon set that each contains two different weapons.
 +
 
 +
First weapon in both sets should be filled. The second weapons in both sets should only be filled if the first weapon isn't two handed, otherwise they should be left blank.
 +
 
 +
Use the following format when filling in the weapon sets:
 +
 
 +
* Weapon: What kind of weapon it is, example: "weapon=Axe"
 +
* Stats: What kind of stats does the weapon have, example: "stats=Berserker (Power/Precision/Ferocity)" - Can be left blank if it's a PvP guide!
 +
* Sigil1= What kind of sigil does this weapon use, example: "sigil1=Superior Sigil of Battle"
 +
* Sigil2= What kind of second sigil does this weapon use, this one is left blank since the weapon isn't two handed. If it was two handed you would fill in the settings just like you did with "Sigil1".
 +
* Infusion: What kind of infusion does this weapon use, example: "infusion=Malign Infusion" - Can be left blank if it's a PvP guide!
  
Fill the first blank with the Specialization name, and the following spaces with the trait's position, for example:
+
The second weapon and the second weapon set should be filled in using the same format, note that you can leave some options blank if they are not being used/required.

===Equipment settings===
This section will be split up into Conquest, World vs. World, and Fractals/Raids as each uses different templates.
+
The equipments should be filled in using the same format as weapons:
===Conquest Equipment Settings===
 
A pvp equipment will show one to two weapons, sigils, runes, and amulets, the following is a blank template:

{{PvP equipment

| sigil1 = 
 
| weapon2 = 
 
| sigil2 = 
 
| rune = 
 
| amulet = 
 
}}
 
</pre>
 
  
The following is a filled in example. Please note that weapon names are not case sensitive, while sigils, runes, and amulets are. For Runes, the '''Superior of''' section is left out, so ''Superior Rune of the Monk'' should be listed as ''the Monk'' :
+
* HeadStats: Stats of the head, example: "HeadStats=Berserker (Power/Precision/Ferocity)" - Can be left blank if it's a PvP guide!
<pre>
+
* HeadRune: Rune that the head is using, example: "HeadStats=Superior Rune of Strength" - Can be left blank if it's a PvP guide!
