This template is a simple shortcut for displaying the 12 playable classes' icons and (optionally) a link to the relevant article or some other formatted text.

{{Class|<class>|<Formatted text or options>}}

The class parameter accepts many options outside of what the eleven classes are called in-game such as abbreviations and common misspellings.

The second parameter can be either any formatted text (try to include a link), or the string 'notext' to not display any text at all, just the two icons. (See also {{ClassIcon}} for an easier means of just showing the icon}})
