Caveats
If you use line breaks to format the layout of the source, then avoid putting a line break after the ability_name or description parameter. This will break the template and looks horrible:
Example
{{abilities
|Flame Spray
|A fiery attack to enemies in front of the caster
|image=inv summerfest firespirit
|id=64717
}}
Result
Inv summerfest firespirit  [[Flame Spray

|[Flame Spray ]]]ω ϖ—A fiery attack to enemies in front of the caster

The unnamed parameters should all be on one line with a vertical bar (|) or the closing braces (}}) at the end.
Alternatively, you can use explicit parameter assignment (1=, 2=, etc).
Example
{{abilities
|1=Flame Spray
|2=A fiery attack to enemies in front of the caster
|image=inv summerfest firespirit
|id=64717
}}
Result
Inv summerfest firespirit  [Flame Spray]ω ϖ—A fiery attack to enemies in front of the caster
