Season 3 has arrived at MOBAFire!! We are excited for the new changes, and are putting the finishing touches on our season 3 database updates as I type! We wanted to kick off the new season with a bang, so I have a very special update to share with you all! We have a shiny, brand new builder!! You can check it out right now! What's different? Let me tell you!

Multiple Item Builds



This is probably the most requested feature, and it is finally here. You can now create multiple sets of items, each with their own name, for your guides. You could use it to split your items up into early, mid and late game, provide situational alternatives, or whatever other genius ideas we're sure you guy will come up with. This will allow you to provide a lot of information and detail before readers even get past your builds.

Season 3 Masteries



We are in the process of updating our database to season 3, but the new masteries are already here in the new builder! Head on over and update your guides right away to prevent them from going stale. We will have the entire season 3 patch in very, very soon, so keep an eye out!

Improved Navigation



We have added a number of navigation features to the guide editor. You can now collapse any chapter by clicking the top right icon, or you can use the "collapse all" button in the tool bar to the side. If you click it a second time it will expand all. You can also toggle the build display on and off - just click the currently open build a second time to collapse it.

The quick-add chapter buttons are still here as well in the tool bar.

The tool bar also follows the page as you scroll, reaching all the way from the top to the bottom of the page so that it is always available.

Names and Notes



We've brought back team names and build names, so that you can (optionally) label each team and build any way you want to help organize it all. You can also name each of your individual item builds to help readers understand your choices.

You will also notice a "Notes" field on many of the build tabs. Item notes, ability notes, runes, masteries. If you type some comments and notes into these fields, then when a reader goes to view your guide they will see a "+ Notes" indicator appear next to each build section that has notes. They can mouse over this to read your comments. This is another great way to provide information to your readers while they check out your build. You can use it to explain any controversial choices you made, or to point them to the section of the guide where you explain those build choices in detail.

Organize Your Guide



As before, you can easily drag and drop your chapters to organize them. However now, you can also drag and drop your items and runes to organize them how you want, without having to start over. This is much more convenient! You can also now select which of your item builds is the "Core" build, by checking the "core" box next to that build. The core item build is what will be displayed on your cheat sheet, and in listings next to your guide, such as on the browse page.

And More!



There are many other conveniences we've added to the new builder, and more is still to come! We are not finished with it, not by a long shot! There are tooltips and hints scattered around it, mouse over anything you're curious about and you will get an explanation. We have a list of features we will be adding to the new builder over the coming weeks as well, so watch out for those!

As always, we await your feedback! Love it? Hate it? Missing something? Let us know!

So what was the conclusion on the idea of making all guides Stale?

I love the new layout, just taking it slow looking at what's different xD

This is probably the best update I've seen since the day I joined. Sucks that I'm busy for the next couple weeks, but I can't wait to get started on all my updates and maybe my next guide. :D

Just curious, is Crystalline Flask added to the database? I was using it as a starting item, and couldn't find it anywhere.

Edit: Oh right, all Season 3 items appear to be missing

^ The new items have been added to the database but aren't in the guide editor yet. We're currently working on updating all the old items, summoner spells and runes, so "stay tuned"! :D
