Default Build Compendium III

GD Build Compendium III

Updated for B31

Please follow this format for posting new builds, as it's far easier for me if people follow this to get builds up quickly.

Builds from B30 have been purged and I don't intend to do any more wipes of the Build Compendium going forward now that we have reached full release. From this point forward, the build tags as a suffix will be more relevant - please pay attention to them!

I've taken over from ibugsy and Build Compendium II now moves into it's third iteration. I'm keeping much the same as the previous thread's rules were fine - only some minor changes. If you have any suggestions for improvements, feel free to reply to the post or PM me.

I also need to mention Mirenheart who started the Build Compendium. Thanks to both Mirenheart and ibugsy for their work on Build Compendium I & II respectively.

Most of the below is left the same as Build Compendium II.

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!
  • Please ensure to follow this format when submitting builds to the compendium.
  • 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.
  • Provide details on Devotion skills taken within the build.
  • Providing a build name makes the build list easier to read and helps differentiate from other builds.
  • 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
  • 02/24/2016: Purged all builds from B30, hopefully the last time for a while.

My Blademaster, which I will work on continuously for a while. As I get gear upgrades and increases in reputation, I will update the save file.

It is intended for Veteran and has a downloadable file.
