Skill icons in text

I've never been a fan of using {{skill pvxicon| outside of the beginning of a bullet list. It doesn't look good imo and it's bad for the reading flow. I recently re-discovered a different link to skills, which will (other than [[gww:) preserve the mouseover effect. {{skill pvxicon|Splinter Weapon|17}}
[[Splinter Weapon@17]
[[gww:Splinter Weapon|Splinter Weapon]]

  • Splinter Weapon Splinter Weapon

In case you might agree about skill icons in text and just wanted to get the mouseover effect, consider this an alternative. --Krschkr (talk) 14:36, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

Ty, didn't know about these. I like skill icons in the usage though, as long as they are not overused :P But I'll definitely keep these ones in mind. --DefinitelyNotHanz (talk) 14:42, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
Yw, there's no policy about this (at least I don't know of one) and people have different opinions on skill icons in text. I have mine since 2011 when people used them in wartower posts and it was terrible. To be fair, skill icons were a bit larger in wartower than they are here. --Krschkr (talk) 14:58, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
