Default Build Compendium II

GD Build Compendium II

Status as of B28
12/01/2015 - the new Build Compendium III is now open for business, check it out for the most current builds.

11/30/2015 - I'm no longer maintaining the Build Compendium, but missing string is! Once they've created a new thread, I'll update this one and add a link to the new thread!

Thanks to all that have contributed to the thread, and good luck in your future builds!


Prelude
Taking up where Mirenheart left off in their Build Compendium, a new compendium is born. I liked their rules and will be using them as well; mostly because why change something that works and why fix something that isn't broke. If there's something missing or broken, please PM me and I'll update it ASAP.

If you want your toon's build to be included, see the Guidelines for Posting below.

Resources
Guidelines for Posting
Yes, this is pretty much verbatim. Credit goes to Mirenheart. Thanks!
  • Start a new thread for your build, make your post neat and readable, and provide the link to your new thread. This allows:
    • for build discussions to be conducted in the build thread,
    • shows your build progression over time as new game builds are released, assuming that nothing major changes with classes and/or skills,
    • me to easily update the Build Compendium.
  • Make sure you have a GrimCalc link to your build.
  • When you post a Grimcalc build, please post at least one link WITHOUT the skill +s from items, just the base skills themselves. If you wish to post a second link with the class having all the +s from items, then go ahead, as long as there is one with base skills.
  • Providing a build name makes the build list easier to read and helps differentiate from other builds.
  • NEW! Provide a listing of your main skills and the main damage type(s) done. For example, Damage Types: xx, xx; and Skills: xx, xx, etc.
  • Using colors, bold text, and/or spacing will help me notice the build you want added as I scroll through, but don't go crazy with it.
  • Try to skim through other builds in the list first before posting yours, in case you have something that's exactly alike, or extremely similar to a build already there.
  • Give a description of the build, and how it works. This doesn't have to be long, but it would be good to describe how to use the skills, and how to play the build.
  • Give a short description of what kind of equipment is needed for the build.
  • If the build was originally created by someone else, please try to credit them.
  • Testing the build up to max level before posting is highly suggested.
  • Tips and suggestions for levelling the build would be nice.

Updates
  • 11/05/2015: Finished adding in damage type and skills for all the builds. Also added in a new code: g to indicate if a build is gear dependent.
  • 10/26/2015: Per a suggestion from Chiba, testing out adding damage type and skills.
  • 10/04/2015: Add Shaman section. Add hyperlinks to the single masteries' description in the game guide.
  • 09/30/2015: Archived the B26 builds to their own archival thread.
