GD Acronym and Abbreviation List

hc : Hard core character.
c- : can clear crucible up to wave 150 on gladiator difficulty
c : can clear crucible up to wave 170 on gladiator difficulty
c+: can farm crucible up to wave 170 on gladiator difficulty using a maximum of 4 Buffs and no Banners in 12 minutes.
vid : The build has a video associated with it. Check the build’s thread/post for the link.
l : The build has a leveling/progression guide.
g# : The build is dependent on specific gear with a value ranging from 1-5. The higher the number, the more gear dependent it is. Refer to the following for more details:

g1 : beginner builds. Those that can be easily done on your first character. Builds that feature full or almost full faction gear are the ones that belong here. A build should only be rated as g1 if it features a faction gear setup cause those are the easiest items to find.
g2 : Flexible itemization or farmable set dependent builds. No fancy MIs required unless it’s self-found. Krieg builds and Dark One builds are good examples. Basically gearing has multiple options.
g3 : No MI, full legendary/set builds with craftable boots. Also includes +5 (skill) Badge of Mastery builds.
g4 : Builds one mandatory MI with fixed affixes, excluding crafted boots.
g5 : Same as above but with more than one MI

Very helpful!

I’d propose the entry for Exclusive Skill into the list in some way: eskill or ES.

OP last activity was almost 1y ago.

Today, I saw “SR” a lot on the forum. Still didn’t figure it out what that was.

Thank you so much!

I sometimes see in titles (g3) (g2) etc what about these? What do they stand for?

  • Melee - consist of builds that require you to physically swing at the mob and/or them swinging at you.
  • Ranged - use Ranged Weapons
  • Caster - Builds that primarily use skills that do not involve %weapon damage.
  • Pet - self explanatory[/li] [li]hc : Hard core character.
  • u : The build is capable of playing on ultimate difficulty.
  • c : is viable for crucible
  • c+: can clear crucible on gladiator difficulty
  • d : The build has a downloadable save file associated with it. Check the build’s thread for the link.
  • vid : The build has a video associated with it. Check the build’s thread/post for the link.
  • g# : The build is dependent on specific gear with a value ranging from 1-5. The higher the number, the more gear dependent it is.
  • l : The build has a leveling/progression guide.

Thank you powbam!

Note that if you have the Forgotten Gods expansion then these are no longer used for builds anyway. Each compendium (V anx IX) tells you what these stand for as far as builds go.

Actually if you go to the latest compendium and look at latest submissions you will find that they indeed use the “g” tag and others still. Its use however is not mentioned by Stupid Dragon in the thread.

I should have specified g tags particularly I guess. Stupid Dragon explains why he dropped it.

I’ll take your word they still use them powbam, but I didn’t see any in the few builds I looked at. :woman_shrugging:

Some people indeed still use this term. It takes time for habits to go away.

Been wondering what’s MC mean? it was in the build guide for Eye of Reckoning skill
