I see you have a lot of views here but no one thanking you for compiling a list of guides. This kind of stuff is super helpful for people just looking for quick links.

Thanks for your efforts! :)

Excellent idea - big thumbs up for the effort.

Bookmarked for future reference - if there ever was a post worth "sticky" - this would be it.

I love reading about different builds but they are so scattered throughout the threads that something had to happen. I had suggested a subforum for builds but not sure if Runic even saw it. I'm trying to keep it builds that actually provide reasoning to why they took the skills they did as opposed to stuff that is like here is my build, the end. Feel free to let me know of any I missed and thanks for the kind words :D Take care.

Builds should not be considered for inclusion unless they've been tested on Elite, since almost anything's viable on Veteran and below.

Most builds fall into one of two categories: Strength or Focus. Any build that proposes a split severely compromises damage and should probably be disregarded.

Also, authors should be credited and titles could be vastly simplified and hyperlinked.




Strength Builds
2H Melee by jadenharrow
Cannoneer by Vallhael
Cannoneer by Phillter

Focus Builds
1H+Shield Tank by dudewiththepants
Dual Wield Emberquake by Shamcrank
Emberquake + minions by TheReaperKing

Vitality Builds
Summoner by Bokuden
Caspid

Thank you for the insight, I will be updating the post after I finish updating my build :) Also I disagree with the they all have to be for Elite. I could make a category called "Fun Builds" for builds that are fun but not really viable for Elite. What do you think? Take care!

There is a pretty good build list post on the berserker forums iirc.

EDIT: Found it. Here you go. Credit to Shek333 for a great organized post. I would totally copy his format and give him a little cred in your post. It's well organized, and easy to find a build for exactly what you're looking for. Keeping original guide titles from the authors is recommended. I recognize builds by the names people give them.

Wonka11 has a FH 1H+shield build, constructed from his discussion on FH vs EQ while tanking.

viewtopic.php?f=45&t=37623&start=60

I quite like the build personally, and thought it should be shared as it's hidden in the discussion.

I'll add it though it seems more of a case study than a build or am I missing something?
