At this point it’s whatever, g-tags will be removed, just a matter of time. I’d like to provide a somewhat adequate replacement first - a guide that should help determining gear dependability. It’ll be in about two weeks if I don’t burn out midway.

I have an idea. Put MI tag instead of G tags. No MI if your build is only legendary. If you have MIs, put MI and number of greens you have. Like MI 1 or 3 or 12…

Current plan is to replace (g4) and (g5) with (mi)

Does it really matter how many MI’s builds have, considering that MI’s also differ in affix quality and farmability?

It might. Some MI’s are much easier to find (i.e. stoneplates vs say a double rolled kuba).

EDIT: Here are some submissions, when you have the time for them - Tyvm!

  • [Caster] [] (g4) (C+) (vid) (L) Storm boss of Elgoloth - Allagast vindicator (sir_spanksalot)

    • Damage: Lightning, electrocute
    • Active Skills: Stormbox, Inqui seal, Word of renewal, Storm totem, Wind devil, aether corruption, Ultos’ arrival
    • Passive Skills: Mogdrogen’s pact, Aura of censure
  • [Caster] [] (g4) (C+) (vid) Ulzuin’s barrelsmith - skyfire grenadier reborn (sir_spanksalot)

    • Damage: Lightning, electrocute
    • Active Skills: Grenado, Canister bomb, Thermite mines, Blazing eruption, Flash bang, Word of renewal, storm box, aether corruption, Ultos’ arrival
    • Passive Skills: Vindictive flame, ulzuin’s chosen, flametouched, blast shield, Aura of censure
    • WPS Skills: Crossfire, Salvo, Duelist

2nd EDIT: My suggestion for tags…

  • MI = any MI, no specific affixes needed
  • ^MI = any MI with a specific prefix needed
  • MI^ = any MI with a specific suffix needed
  • ^MI^ = any MI with both a specific prefix + suffix needed

But differentiating between all of those would be totally impossible via a tag system (unless you want to add, like, 50 new tags for farmability/crafting cost/affix roll chance/etc.)…

I’d +1 your ^mi^-tag system to differentiate between the no. of required affixes, though.

Maybe the circumflex could be a minus (-mi-) or a plus instead (+mi+)? But that’s just a matter of taste, really :stuck_out_tongue:

Sure, makes sense to me.

IMO, doesn’t matter how many MI’s are in a build. What matters is how many rare, and necessary affixes are attached to them.

Ergo - I think the tag should indicate the number of rare affixes, not so much the # of M.I’s

New rules
Builds with out char screenshot can’t be post in compendium

Now you will make Sir something depressed a lot :rofl:

Yeah, that’s why I like your idea.
I was suggesting a weird (mi) / (mi+) system before because just differentiating between (mi) + (non-mi) seemed a little insufficient to me; but your one looks way better :slight_smile:

Hey, c’mon, taking a screenshot in-game & throwing it into a post takes, like, 30secs :stuck_out_tongue:

Edit: and this new rule only goes for new additions, anyways. It’s not like he has to update all of his past build guides now

@omnitrio: man. I’ve got 0 screenshots on all my guides…does that mean I’d have to delete all of them?

P.S. In all honesty, I hope no one thinks I’m posting builds different from the ones in my GT :confused:

EDIT: @cinder - if that’s the case, then we can just go (P# | S#), where p = prefix, s = suffix

The rule was put into place because GT was down for more than a week a while ago, and people didn’t really have any way to see how a build looks in-game withouth a screenshot at that time :wink:

So we only have to add screenshots now in case that ever happens again, not because they think you forgot to reset your 9999 spirit back to normal or sth :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

rules is rules

for new and updated builds must be a screenshot

is it difficult for you to make a screenshot and post it in your thread?

Oh! I thought it was a suggestion you were making, I didn’t realize it was a new rule. No. it’s not difficult at all. i thought I’d have to go back and edit all my guides, which isn’t possible because some characters have been deleted/changed.

Sorry for not reading posting rules

Sure, I’ll add in the screen shots later.

EDIT: omfg. lol. sorry, I have no idea how to use this forum

2nd edit: screenshots added

Pending builds processed.

This is correct, thank you for explanation.
It also serves as a minimal proof of character’s existence, since performance videos are optional.

Thanks for your input, but I’m going to reject that because it has “needs” in it:

To elaborate - it’s beyond my power to arbiter on what counts as “needs” and what not, especially since I’m 100% sure now buildmakers will argue with me about that due to buildmakers arguing with me that gear tag system is unfair and their build deserves lower rating.

There’s also myself being unsure whether an item resulting in some overcaps, useful proc and 500 more hp should count as “needs” or not. Technically it may be not necessary for the build to function, but the high end performance could be drastically different.

Not a problem, noone does :rofl:

Among other things that changed is you don’t have to mention component buffs like Electrifying Weapons anymore since I’ll remove them anyway. You also could omit WPS Skills: none line if you want since I’ll remove it anyway too.
