Guide Creation Overview

Save, Publish, Preview/View, Archive

Save as Draft

Feature allows members to save their build privately to come back and work on it another day. When you use this feature you can't send links of your build to anyone but it will be listed on your profile page for easy access to finish. It remains private as long as you have it saved as a draft so no one can see it, rate it or comment on it.

Archive Build

Feature is meant to remove old, outdated, non supported builds without removing the historical data from the system. Comments, votes and the build remain intact while new comments or votes can not be added anymore. If you wish to save a build publicly but without rating or comments enabled, this can be used for that purpose as well. You can archive your guide by viewing the published version of the guide and clicking the 'Archive' button at the top of the page.

Guest Builds

Meant to be "Trial" builds or "Demo" builds and are created when users are not logged in. For this reason they are omitted from browse results unless users specifically include them in their searches. If you want to create a build that has comments turned on but will get mostly ignored (example: for discussion with your friends) this is a good way to accomplish that.

Save & Publish

How you publish your build for public viewing. Your build should be ready for public scrutiny when you save and publish as it goes to the live lists right away. It should be as complete as possible to avoid unwanted negative votes. Its common for incomplete builds to receive negative votes in the early stages of development, but those viewers don't return later to re-evaluate the build, so make sure it's solid before you publish. Later edits and additions to your guide can be accomplished by Saving and Publishing your guide again.

How to Qualify as a Full Guide

Full Guides are highlighted separately from mere builds as they offer more in-depth and complete content. In order for your guide to qualify as a Full Guide rather than just a build, you’ll need to fulfill the following requirements:

  • Runes must be fully allocated.
  • 2 Summoner Spells must be selected.
  • Ability points must be fully distributed for all 18 levels.
  • Guide body text must reach a minimum of 3,000 typed characters (includes BBCode).


BBCode Help

Basic Tooltips and Icons

Items, runes, summoner spells, champions and abilities can all be easily hyperlinked to their appropriate pages in the database (as well as adding the appropriate icon) by adding [[double square brackets]] around the term. Letter case is ignored, so you don’t have to worry about capitalizing words. Readers will also be able to mouseover the link to read the tooltip.

Example: [[lee sin]] or [[Lee Sin]] becomes Lee Sin

You can also create the icon for any item in the database and adjust the size as needed. Icons are useful as visual indicators as to what you’re discussing in a particular section of your guide. For example, you could use the icon of Thornmail to show visually where your guide talks about Thornmail. Readers can also mouseover the icon to read the tooltip.

To create an icon, start with [icon=___] and then fill in the blank with your desired entry. The name of the icon must match the name of the ability/rune/etc. in the database. You can adjust the icons size using the size parameter.

Example: [icon=Void Rush size=30] becomes

Basic Images and Embeds

You can also embed custom images into your guide rather than just using icons from the database. To do this, you’ll need to upload your image to an image hosting site like imgur.com or find your desired image online and copy the image URL. Make sure to always copy the direct image URL, which isn’t always the URL at the top of the page. You can do this by right-clicking the image and selecting "Copy Image URL."

Just like with icons, you can change the size of your image as needed. One small difference is that you’ll need to specify the width or height of the image (or both) rather than using the “size” parameter. Adjusting only one of these parameters will preserve the image’s native aspect-ratio, so you won’t see any stretching or warping. In most cases, simply adjusting the image’s width works well enough. The default measurement for width and height is pixels, but you can also use percentages to adjust the image’s size relative to its full size (e.g. "width=60%").

Example:

[img=https://www.mobafire.com/images/champion/skins/landscape/nocturne-haunting.jpg width=400]

Icon & Text Using Columns or Tables

One useful BBCode technique is using columns or tables to place an icon next to a section of text. This can also be achieved using the “float” parameter (e.g. [icon=Ashe size=40 float=left]), but this can result in the text “spilling” past the icon and going underneath it, which isn’t always desirable. In order to cleanly place an icon next to a section of text, you’ll need to use either columns or tables. We’ll show you how to do both. If you’d like to know more about the full use of columns and tables, check out our official BBCode Guide.

Tables Example:

Code:
[columns] [nextcol width=60][icon=Death Mark size=60] [nextcol width=20] [nextcol]Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum. [/columns]

Result:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.



Tables Example:

Code:
[table] [tr] [td padding=15][icon=Trinity Force size=60][/td] [td padding=15]Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.[/td] [/tr] [/table]

Result:
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

Image & Text Using Columns or Tables

You can use a very similar technique to place a larger image next to a section of text. Larger images can be useful for breaking up walls of text and providing useful visual aids for readers. The full width of the guide area is 690 pixels, so keep that number in mind when deciding how to divide up the width of your guide between image and text. Again, we'll give you examples using columns and tables so you can decide which method you prefer.

Columns Example:

Code:
[columns] [nextcol width=300][img=https://www.mobafire.com/images/champion/skins/landscape/evelynn-shadow.jpg width=300] [nextcol width=30] [nextcol]Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum. [/columns]

Result:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.



Tables Example:

Code:
[table] [tr] [td padding=25 width=300][img=https://www.mobafire.com/images/champion/skins/landscape/irelia-nightblade.jpg width=300][/td] [td padding=25]Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.[/td] [/tr] [/table]

Writing tips

Aspects of a Good Guide
  • Relevance: Keep your guide updated as much as possible. Outdated guides are less useful at best, and spread misinformation at worst.
  • Detail: Provide explanations for your recommendations. Don’t just tell people what to do, tell them why. Go into extra detail and offer tips that the majority of players wouldn’t know. Make sure your readers learn something from your guide that they couldn’t get from just checking out the champion’s ability tooltips.
  • Presentation: Organize your chapters and the information in each of them. Use headers, images, lists, tables and columns to help keep your guide organized and make it visually appealing. Some readers will skim your guide for the information they’re looking for. Make sure they can find it easily.
  • Focus: Keep it concise. Great authors keep their information focused, relaying as much information to their readers as possible within a small space. Detail is important, but so is keeping your readers interested and not wasting their time.
  • Personality: Put some of yourself into your guides. Whether through humor, professionalism or interesting diction, your voice as an author should be unique. Make your guides memorable and people will keep coming back for more.

Improving Your Guide
  • Images: A picture is worth more than a thousand words, so why not show instead of tell. Using images (jungle maps, skillshot examples) helps the reader understand things that are hard to explain with words.
  • Videos: Videos and gifs can be even better than pictures for a guide. A jungle video with the best route, or the best ward placements, or the best way to use a certain skill is excellent and will help your guide a lot. A simple video showing a game where you dominate as a champion isn't a good illustration of that champion's performance. If you have a trick you describe, try to have a video showing the trick and how it's useful in a game.
  • Using Icons: Icons allow the use of tooltips, which explain a Skill, Champion, Rune or Item, in some detail.
  • Divided Sections | Subdividing Sections: Doing this will bring more organization to the guide and break up unnecessary walls of text. Subdividing sections is wise when you have multiple sections related to the same topic.
  • Including Alternatives: Alternative runes, items or ability sequences will make your guide much better. This allows your build to be used for multiple setups. What's more, it helps having alternatives because not everything always goes as planned, and sometimes you have to use a certain rune setup to counter a pick (for ranked mainly).
  • Use Resources: Take advice from others about your guide, and consider any changes they suggest. Take a look at other guides to see where yours is lacking, and feel free to include links to other relevant guides in your own if it will help your reader. If you don't want to go into detail on jungling or warding, include a link to a good guide on that topic. If you want to make a great guide, focus on helping your readers.

Characteristics of Bad Guides:
  • Walls of Text: They are unattractive. People will literally not read your guide if it contains even one HUGE Wall of Text. This is why images and videos help the guide. They reduce the need for words. As long as the text is embedded with coding, colour and an interesting style of writing, then the reader should stay interested.
  • Grammar mistakes: I'm not saying there can't be a typo here and there, we are all human. But to make your ideas clear for the reader, you have to present them in the best way possible.
  • Inconsistency: Keep the parts of your guide looking similar, in a format that's simple to read. Don't just shake things up halfway through - it makes the work look shoddy and patched-up, and can confuse the reader. If you stress a certain point in the guide, do NOT contradict yourself later.
  • Complication: Unless it's necessary (like if you're explaining a difficult mechanic or trick), you need to keep the guide as simple as possible so as many people will understand it as possible. This applies to SO MANY THINGS, including items, runes, skill order, masteries, et cetera.
  • Redundancy: It's annoying to read something in a guide that's being repeated over and over in several different sections. There's repeating a point for emphasis, and there's saying the same thing as if it's a brand new idea.
