Template documentation
This documentation is transcluded from Template:DropsLine/doc. [edit] [purge]
Template:DropsLine invokes function main in Module:DropsLine using Lua.

The DropsLine templates are used to list a monster's drops. Three templates are used to form the drop logs:

  • {{DropsTableHead}} - Contains table headers for the top of the drop table
  • {{DropsLine}} - Template for all of the individual drop lines
  • {{DropsTableBottom}} - Contains table footers for the bottom of the drop table

Predefined and alternate templates

Several predefined templates have been made to assist with several common uses.

This DropsLine is aimed primarily for monsters that are killed in combat. For other ways of getting drops, use:


|name        = <!-- Name of item -->
|namenotes   = <!-- (Optional) Notes added to the item name without disrupting GE price.-->
|quantity    = <!-- Quantity(s) dropped by monster. Separate with commas. -->
|rarity      = <!-- How rare the item is: Always, Common, Uncommon, Rare, Very rare, Varies -->
|raritynotes = <!-- (Optional) Extra things added into the Rarity column, to not disrupt the colouring-->
|gemw        = <!-- (Optional) "no" if item is not sold on the GE -->
|altvalue    = <!-- (Optional) The value to display when gemw=no -->
|altrarity   = <!-- (Optional) Display a second rarity, separated by a semicolon -->
|altraritydash = <!-- (Optional) Set to "yes" to use a dash instead of a semicolon -->
|members     = <!-- (Optional) Override the default members option -->
|version     = <!-- Which version(s) (comma separated) of a monster has this drop (needed only if drop only applies to 1 version specified in switch infobox, and DropsTableHead and DropLogProject do not already specify this)  -->
|rolls       = <!-- How many rolls per kill does this drop get (e.g. for bosses that have 2 drops per kill like Zulrah or Vorkath -->
|alt         = 
|gemwname    = <!-- If the item name is not the exact same as the name on the Grand Exchange, specify the name in this parameter -->
|smwname     = <!-- Used to specify the page to list in SMW results. Most commonly used to specify a page #anchor to have SMW link to specific item versions -->
|smw         = <!-- Set this to "No" to stop this item from appearing in SMW results -->
|image       = <!-- Manual addition of image if item is not sold on GE. Don't add [[File:_]] -->}}

NOTE: The template should be used in one line, like the example below.

Parameter details


Name of the item/drop, should link directly to the article.

namenotes (optional)

If extra notes need adding to the item name, such as for noted items, use the "Name notes" parameter. This will allow the Image and gemw parameters to still work.


Quantity of the item dropped by the monster. If multiple quantities are randomly dropped, list them all and separate with commas. Do not use commas as thousand separators, and do not use abbreviations like k and m - input 9000, not 9,000 or 9k.

The price column automatically detects several types of ranges:

  • Several individual values separated with commas, e.g. 1,4,7
    • Uses the first and the last values (not max and min; numbers in the middle ignored), so make sure to order them in ascending order.
  • A range in the form min-max, e.g. 1-10
    • Uses the number on the left of the - as min, and the right as max
  • A combination of the above two, e.g. 1-3,5,7-9,11
    • First separates by commas, then if the first is a range, uses the left of the - as min; if the last is a range, uses the right of the - as max; otherwise if either is not a range uses the number that is there as min or max, respectively. In the example, the min number would be 1 and the max 11. Make sure they're ordered in ascending order.

The word (noted) is removed before parsing it, but other variations are not. All other characters and text are parsed as is, so make sure the Quantity field only contains numbers, commas, hyphens and (noted), nothing else.


Rarity of the item. Only 6 available options:

Rarity Explanation Exact rate (if known)
Always Always dropped by the monster 1/1
Common The most common of items. Renowned for being common. Nearly always dropped. 1/2 to 1/25
Uncommon Dropped sometimes, but not necessarily renowned for being common 1/26 to 1/99
Rare Rarely dropped. Will take quite a few drops to obtain. 1/100 to 1/999
Very rare Renowned for being rare among players. Hardly ever dropped. Items like the divine sigil, some dragon items, etc. 1/1000 or rarer
Varies/Random Dropped with a mechanic more complex than a simple drop rate. Use the Raritynotes parameter to indicate how the drop probability varies with boss level.

Leaving the rarity blank or entering a rarity other than always/common/uncommon/rare/very rare/varies defaults to a white colour.

raritynotes (optional)

If extra notes on the items rarity need to be entered into the column, such as a citation, or some other requirement to be dropped (e.g. the specific bones for Rag and Bone Man I are only dropped during that quest, etc), use the "Raritynotes" parameter. This will allow the colouring of the standard rarities to still work.


Which version(s) (comma separated) of the monster has this drop. Only needed on pages with multiple versions of a monster listed, if the DropsTableHead does not already list this same parameter.

If a certain table only lists drops for a certain version of a monster, {{DropsTableHead|Version=1}} may be used (filling in the correct version for that table). If an entire section specifies only drops for a certain version, {{DropLogProject|Version=1}} may be used.


Whether the item is listed on the Grand Exchange Market Watch. If yes, leave blank, and the price will be pulled automatically. If no, enter "no", which puts "Not sold" in the table cell. Entering "no" will remove the image, requiring manual configuring of the item's image using the "Image=" field.


A manual configuration of the item's image. Only use this parameter when the image name (minus extension) does not exactly match the item name. Casing is important, so be sure the "Name" parameter also leads directly to the item's page. In normal circumstances, the item image can automatically be pulled from its GEMW page. Do not add square brackets and the file prefix. Just use "Name.png".

altvalue (only if gemw parameter is no)

The price to display when the item cannot be traded between players. Used only when "gemw=no". A reference will be added to clarify this. The value will be formatted with thousands separators, so commas should not be entered.
