The template produces an item link (with an optional icon) that when hovered over will display an extensive tooltip, pulling information from that item's wiki page. Note that the tooltip function requires a valid {{itemtip}} on the item's Wowpedia page. Like most other links, it will display in red if the <page_name> is incorrect.

Usage: {{item|<page_name>|<display_name>}}

  • <page_name> is required.
  • <display_name> is optional. If just "s" is entered, the link will add an "s" to the page name.

Make a regular item link like  [Reins of the Bengal Tiger] into a shorter name:

  • {{item|Reins of the Bengal Tiger|Bengal Tiger|icon=}}:  [Bengal Tiger]

Make an item a plural:

In cases where you're just linking an item, just link the item as usual (i.e. [[item link]]). This template should only be used in cases like above, especially for hotfix articles and patch notes.
