How about we get Passive Skills and WPS Skills cut from the submission form?

That’s something that was carried over from previous compendiums and was intended to make searching for specific skills easier. But logically speaking noone would have it in their mind to search for builds that use Blood of Dreeg or Possession.

I’ve also clinged to it as a fallback option for when GT is off, but it had been stable for 2 years already with no major downtimes. Meanwhile it’s not actually that helpful to know which passive and wps skills are used without the exact skillpoint distribution anyway.

Main reason I want to do that is it got tedious to scroll though. 2 years ago there just hadn’t been such an abundance of builds, but now for some classes there’s like close to two dozens of submissions.


  • Yes, remove the WPS Skills and Passive Skills from the form
  • No, let it stay

In accordance with the above (albeit unfinished) poll, passive skills are omitted.

Also added the “meme” tag to the title. Don’t see a lot of those around these parts though, eh?

I noticed, since I like going for beginners builds for ease of play, and since I’ve collected alot of gears with bleeding included, I noticed there’s no beginning builds for bleeding? is it the gear dependent is the reason? or it just suck? BTW thanks for all the builds especially the beginning section, I appreciate it! Keep up the good work!

Main reason is there aren’t that many bleed skills in the game. Even less skills that have substantial bleed worth building around, as opposed to some skill’s “flavour” bleed (looking at you Primal Strike, Forcewave and Bloody Pox). Then even less skills that are cool to level with (transmuted Blade Arc is viable endgame but levelling with 5 sec cooldown melee skill will feel like shit). Add in that some skills just don’t have much budget support (Counter Strike, Vire’s Might) you’ll have our current situation when noone just bothered to make such a build.

I can vouch for only one bleed build that feels decent enough to level - it is the blade spirit build with Scarab Shell. E.g. this thread. There are even some levelling tips down in the comments.

Oh ok, no wonder! at least I’m playing a LIghtning Warder which is alot of fun! thanks for the reply!
