Build Index

 

Ack! This is horribly out of date. Some of the builds in here remain viable even into Update 15 but only some.

Use At Your Own Risk!


I like to challenge myself with unusual builds. I dislike cookie cutters. But there is often a reason why a build becomes a cookie cutter – it’s probably pretty good!

If you are considering playing one of these builds, the ones marked “pure class” or “straightforward” will be less likely to get you mocked by your friends.
