Credits
  • Much Credit goes to Missing String and ibugsy as we move into it’s Fifth 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.

  • Honorable mention Mirenheart who started the Build Compendium. Thanks to Missing String, Mirenheart, ibugsy and Cryodacry for their work on Build Compendium I & II & III & IV respectively.

  • With the forum transition in June 2019 links were broken in this Build Compendium. PlentyFoldsInTheGrey and eisprinzessin salvaged them and restored order. Ignore any links, which are striked through. If supposedly valid links take you to wrong threads / post, please flag them, so that the forum mods can take care of them.

I am still having major health issues and will be in and out of here. I just wanted to make sure you guy’s knew i wasn’t gone from the community.

Again Thank You for picking this up off of me !

Best wishes for a speedy recovery Cryodacry.
