Dungeon Boss Wiki
Template documentation follows
Note: the template above may sometimes be partially or fully invisible.
Visit Template:Effects/doc to edit this documentation. (How does this work?)


This Template:Effects is a layer between the wiki markup parser and the Lua script Module:Effects. It just delegates all calls to the module which works with the Effect data found in Module:Effects/data.

For maintenance purposes it is recommended to use this template and not to invoke the Module function directly. If a function changes or the "interface" changes you can yu can add a category like [[Category:Effects script usage]] to the template to find all pages that use the Lua script.

Note: Wrong ids and arguments or missing arguments can result in a script error. You have to look at the source of the generated HTML page. There you will find hints what went wrong.

The Module:Effects/test offers the function checkEffects to check the data for typos, missing attributes, etc. You can call it from the debug console (edit the module) or invoke it on any page by adding



(This can be subject to change. This documentation should be updated then as well.)

The Module:Effects offers 2 functions:

  • get|<effect id>|<attribute>
  • ids|<filter>

Function get (Retrieving the data)

1st agument for the template is the function name: get

2nd argument (=1st argument/parameter for the function) is the effect id as defined in Module:Effects/data.
Note: all ids are written in lower case, do not add spaces! The id is the adjective form, not the verb form (daze -> dazed, frostbite -> frostbitten, frozen, etc) as displayed in-game.

3rd argument is an attribute (key) of the effect (table). Available attributes are:

  • name (of the effect),
  • type (this is one of the following keywords: buff, debuff or effect),
  • image (the name of the image, e.g. Dazed Icon.png),
  • description (of the effect).

Note: A special attribute is heroes. This returns a list of heroes that have the given effect in one of their abilities or traits.


Example 1
get the image name of an effect you can write


returns the image name of the Dazed effect:

Dazed Icon.png

Use it with the File wiki tag to show the image:

[[File:{{Effects|get|dazed|image}}|50px]] '''{{Effects|get|dazed|name}}'''<br>


Dazed Icon.png Dazed
Target has an increased chance to Miss when attacking.

Example 2
to get all heroes that can Daze you write


and it returns:

Lua error in Module:Effects at line 86: attempt to call global 'heroesWithEffect' (a nil value).

Function ids (List of the ids)

Use the template with ids for the 2nd argument and a type keyword (buff, debuff or effect) as 3rd argument to filter the ids by the given type:


Note/known bug omitting the filter does not work proper with the template. Call the Module:Effects ids function directly by


to get all ids unfiltered.


to get all effect ids of type buff use


This returns the list of all ids:
