I'm almost back... Once I am back, I will spend some time revamping this template for Epic difficulties and Epic XP... Until then, please be patient. Big Grin ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 11:18, September 24, 2012 (EDT)

Honestly I don't think this template needs any changes for epics, just add a new table and label it epic. Temp could use a simplified code so one does not have to deal with new lines and aliment but, which I could do. Really could use a new item template that covers 6 same name items like those of druid deep on one page. Bladedge (ContributionsMessage) 13:23, September 24, 2012 (EDT)
I was thinking along the lines of...
Quest Name Quest Level Total Favor Patron  ♣CasualSolo/Casual  ♦NormalNormal  ♥HardHard  ♠EliteElite Epic?
Quest 1 3 7 Patron  ♣500Solo/Casual
 ♣750Epic Casual
 ♦1,500Epic Normal
 ♥1,875Epic Hard
 ♠2,250Epic Elite
Quest 2 3 7 Patron
Quest 3 3 7 Patron  ♣1,000Solo/Casual
 ♣1,500Epic Casual
 ♦3,000Epic Normal
 ♥3,750Epic Hard
 ♠4,500Epic Elite
Quest 4 3 7 Patron
Total 4 28  ♣4,250Solo/Casual
 ♣2,250Epic Casual
 ♦4,500Epic Normal
 ♥5,625Epic Hard
 ♠6,750Epic Elite

...for an output. -- ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 13:47, September 24, 2012 (EDT)

I thought about a number of ways, on same line w/ & w/o (), second line, using rowspan, etc. Then there is the users who would be trying to break down the information on whats be shown with a dozen numbers with yes, no. And just decided here be the heroic table and there epic table with out all the extras that weren't being looked for and keep it clean and neat.

I also was considering some kind of mouse-over possible method. I really think it is easier and looks neater all on one page. Just my personal opinion though... ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 16:08, September 24, 2012 (EDT) (Posted from my BlackBerry Curve 9330)


I think it is time to revisit this idea. I know have a manageable grasp on how DPL works mostly, and these tables need a major overhaul. I'm thinking that they should be flat out converted to a phantom template and a DPL call template. Before I start working on that though... Do we want it to be all inline or do we want it split over two lines? I think that doing it as two lines would look less cluttered, but it would make the table less functional by messing with sortability (it could still be done, but would require a lot more hidden magic; which can be a pain). Alternatively, it can be done all on one line, which is fine for people with wide screens, but gets really hard to read for people without. I need some feedback here, and am willing to put together some mockups and take screenshots at various resolutions to see what they look like. Let me know.

  • This has been sitting here as a C:PPoIs for well over a year and I've gotten no feedback at all... I'm going to try it as a single line first because functionality is more important to me than aesthetics. We can go from there later. DDOstream (ContribsMessage) 08:54, January 17, 2017 (EST)
  • Note: I actually started working on this on stream today!
    Change list:
    • Epic column gone
    • Epic values now accepted as parameters:
      |10 = epic/legendary solo\casual
      |11 = epic/legendary normal
      |12 = epic/legendary hard
      |13 = epic/legendary elite
    To be done still:
    • Make XP columns sortable again with a data-sort-value
    • Change order of columns to be | Quest Name | Level | Solo | Norm | Hard | Elite | Patron | Favor |
      Use total row for | Total | # of quests | Solo XP | Norm XP | Hard XP | Elite XP | Total XP | Total Favor |
    • Set up DPL template and use this as part of phantom for it
See EXAMPLES section of template for current appearance. DDOstream (ContribsMessage) 09:52, October 3, 2017 (EDT)

Is there any way to make this template not display the "Unavailable" msg for quests that have no epic version? For example, the table on The Catacombs has "Unavailable" with the red bar printed 32 times which makes the table ugly and much larger than needed. I'm sorry if this is just a work in progress...I don't mean to put undue pressure on. Kkoliver (ContribsMessage) 05:47, January 4, 2018 (EST)
