Use this at the top of articles on subjects that are no longer in the main game, but exist on the Classic servers. It places the article in a category such as Category:Removed in patch 4.0.3a, depending on what patch is given; if no patch is given, places the article in Category:Removed from World of Warcraft.

This template should appear on all classic realm articles.

Note: This template will cause certain templates to add "removed" categories instead of regular categories--e.g. Category:Removed Horde quests instead of Category:Horde quests. Templates that use this feature: {{Questbox}}, {{Infobox ability}}.


Parameters allow for:

  • patch= - first unnamed and optional named parameter
  • replacement= - optional named parameter, name of the page that replaces this subject on the retail realms
  • unique= - optional named parameter, if the subject was added exclusively in the Classic server (never existed in retail) e.g.  [Reawakened Phase-Hunter]
  • doc= - optional named parameter, suppresses category inclusion

Classic options:

  • tbc= - display BC Classic information instead
