Most of the guides below were written for early versions of the game (e.g. 1.0-1.5). 
For a post-White March / 3.0 list of class builds, see here.

 

The purpose of this Index is to serve as a one-stop resource of character builds that others have posted/shared in these forums, as well as any helpful strategy/mechanics topics. Hopefully it can serve as a starting point for anyone looking for class/build ideas and info.

IMPORTANT: For instructions on how to post a class build for inclusion in this index, please read the "How To Post Character Builds."
 
Disclaimer: WIP, formatting may change as needed.
 
=====================
Section I = general gameplay/mechanics/class advice and discussion topics
Section II = class build list index (end-game tested)
