Collection of theorycrafted FG builds pre-release 2.0

I will now update this thread till … tomorrow! as it is the release date.
This thread is just a copy/paste from the first thread by malawiglenn who should be thanked and revered until the end of time for his hard work.

in this thread I will collect and organize the theorycrafted builds that we made prior to the Forgotten Gods release.

You can find the thread Forgotten Gods Theorycrafting Thread (x1x1x1x2) here

I have and will only collected the pre-FG theorycrafted builds posted in the said thread. Some forumites have made a new thread for their particular builds. In particular, an entire thread have been dedicated to discuss Eye of Reckoning (spin2win) builds here:

Furthermore, I have included only the first version of the presented build. If you wanna see what kind of improvements people have suggested simply search the posts below the build of interest to see if anyone has quoted and commented.

NOTE these builds are purely theoretical and have not been played (though some praetorians have given their insights/spoilers on how some of these builds would perform in game). Also keep in mind that Grim Tools is not 100% accurate pre-release.

If you have posted a build in x1x1x1x2’s thread and I have not included it here please comment below if you want it included here in the summary thread.

There are over 1000 posts made so far in x1x1x1x2’s thread, great theorycrafting everybody!

It happens on a daily basis that people asks “has anyone done some kind of build with xyz skill/set” in the x1x1x1x2 thread.
So my summary here will simply help less active forum members to find a build to aim for / use as inspiration.

Sure, most of the builds will change of course (and some might not even become reality), but it will take several weeks until we have a new build compendium thread and so on. Again, this thread of collected builds will serve as a source of inspiration.

I look very much forward to see us all find the required gear and play with our digital dolls :slight_smile:

I will update now and then to include more builds

I sometimes gets asked if I can add build x to this thread. My general answer is “no”. My ambition was only to gather our initial build ideas in one place where it is easy to find them. I do not have the time to keep this thread updated with “latest version” or similar. Post your builds in the x1x1x1x2 thread and if someone is interested in finding a more recent version of the build, that person will either PM you or perform an advanced search in said thread.

Oathkeeper (Single class)

updated till #1437

The cyclone skill shown in trailer. Which skill is that? I am looking for a build that uses that.

Found it: Eye of Reckoning.


Moderator please make this thread sticky, at least until we have a new build compendium

Nice work with finalizing this project Belzzzz you are a true hero!

I asked for the same thing on the first thread…

Sounds reasonable to be sticky,good job guys to keep the eternal fire of theory crafting blazing.

I have been writing “have a look in this thread” 4 or 5 times today :stuck_out_tongue:


and EoR requests :stuck_out_tongue:

Well around 5.5k views already so hopefully those that spend 1 minute searching for the answer to his/her question will find it here :slight_smile:

/insert doubt

But seriously, thanks so much for this, really helping my little Twohander Dervish smack some stuff around.

As a newer player to whom a build spec list doesn’t mean a ton, what does each of the the oathkeeper class combos excel in rolewise?

Good information

Just a casual bump!

One bump a day drives the doctor away :slight_smile:

Time for another bump

Bump again, make sticky!!!

Third Bump today :smiley:

You know you can report threads also for good things to happen…
