Area damage
Area damage is the damage type dealt by most area of effect abilities, as well as a select few basic attacks, items and runes. Most sources of area damage have the Magic damage magic damage sub-type, but this is not guaranteed.

Many items effects are triggered whenever you deal an instance of area damage. For example:

Effects triggered by damage sub-types will occur (e.g. Black Cleaver item The Black Cleaver on instances of Attack damage Physical damage and Morellonomicon item Morellonomicon on instances of Magic damage Magic damage).

All tip data templates use the same parameter.

Retrieval of data items

{{data Area damage|pst2|interrupts}}, using parameter selection template Template:Pst2, gives the parameter interrupts, etc.

For retrieval of more data items it is more efficient to prepare a template for that, to be used as follows:

{{data Area damage|template name|..|..|..|..}}

so that this data template needs to be called only once.[1] The default template is Template:Tip data, producing this page.

The four parameters are optional, they are passed on to the prepared template as parameters 2-5.

A parameter being undefined or empty typically means the same, see below. {{data ..|pst2|..}} gives the empty string and the text "{{{..}}}", respectively. Therefore, an application checking the parameter has to check both. Checking whether a result is equal to e.g. the text "{{{popinc}}}" cannot be done directly with #ifeq in a template which itself has also a parameter with that name, because if that is defined, there would be a comparison with the value instead of the text itself. Instead, it can be checked whether the first character of the result is "{", e.g.: {{#ifeq:{{padleft:|1|{{data {{{continent}}}|pst2|popinc}}}}|{|..|..}}. Until here the documentation is automatically generated by Template:Tip data.
