==Template Explanation==
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>''.

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.

You can list weapon variations by using:
 +
<pre>
 +
{{Skills/Profession| / }}
 +
</pre>
 +

Examples:
 +
<pre>
 +
{{Skills/Guardian|Mace/x}}
 +
{{Skills/Mesmer|Scepter/Sword}}
 +
{{Skills/Warrior|x/Shield}}
 +
</pre>

Which looks like:
 +
{{Skills/Guardian|Mace/x}}

{{Skills/Mesmer|Scepter/Sword}}

{{Skills/Warrior|x/Shield}}
