Fan skill

From Diablo Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A fan skill is a Diablo-inspired skill for a fan class or perhaps a fan monster in the minds of one or more fans of the franchise. These are not official skills, or even official joke skills from Blizzard.

The fan skills are made to help give Blizzard ideas about their game development, for theorycrafting of what Blizzard might create next, or just right out unrealistic and funny. It can also be part of a contest or other event.

For a full list of fan skills, see the fan skills category.

Background[edit | edit source]

The idea to make a section for fan-created skills in Diablo Wiki was derived from the original additions of fan classes back in early June 2009. Since then, most invented skills have just been added on to skill lists of various fan classes, but a few have been made with their own page for easier linkeage. This page and its category is here to help fans create new and exciting creations that are made to inspire Blizzard, or perhaps just fellow fans.

Example Fan Skills[edit | edit source]

Not that many fanmade skills have so far been created, but here are a few examples of how it can look:

Questions and Answers[edit | edit source]

  • Who can make a new skill or skill tree in DiabloWiki?

Anyone with a little bit of imagination can make a fanmade article in the Diablo wiki. A minimum level of seriousness, or effort is required, and any entry is welcome.

  • Can I improve others' skills?

Normally in a wiki, you can edit anything anywhere, but since these articles are works by individuals, you should ask them for permission to edit. Fixing typos, grammatical errors or adding wiki links is of course always welcome.

  • Do I have to make a skill on my own, or can I collaborate with friends?

Of course you can collaborate with friends! Others then have to ask the collaboration group if they wish to help out.

  • How can you guarantee no one will edit my skill

It's a wiki, and we're all in it, there's no "you" to talk to to prevent it. The answer is that "we" can't prevent edits, only encourage people to ask the authors first. If you see edits classed as "vandalism" on your class, fix the issue and report the offending user to Leord or Holyknight3000.

  • How do I create a skill then?

Easy, just type in the name you want to call it in your browser, like this:
Then just click "Edit", write what you want, and save.

  • How can I find a cool image as a portrait to my skill?

Make one, or humbly ask one of the artists in the Fan Creation Forum over at for help.

  • Are there any help pages for editing wikis I can use?

DiabloWiki has a quite good Help section you can use. Primarily the markup section should help.
