How to Make a Good Build 101: Part 2

FinitFinit Smithsburg, MDPosts: 145Member

Some of you may remember the first part to "How to Make a Good Build 101", and I have now added Part two.  The first part was on Weapon choice, Utility, and Trait selection while the second focuses on Gear, Accessories, Sigils, Runes, and Jewels.  The second post can be found here at:  http://divinitysreach.blogspot.com/2012/05/how-to-make-build-part-2.html

 

Both posts are to help those a little overwhelmed by the whole process of making an entire build.  I walk you through each part step by step, and I will have an example build with added commentary by the end fo the week.

 

Thanks again.

    Nice piece! One tip though, you could do with a few links in there.. stuff like "to find what runes are available, simply type rune in the Guild Wars 2 wiki page" reads like something in a printed article, for a blog post you should just link to http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Rune so people can go straight there.


    But apart from that stylistic detail I enjoyed it very much and definitely learned a few things!

    *raises hand*  uh, Professor.  Technically course number 101:Part 2 would be course number 102.

    Charr: Outta my way.
    Human: What's your problem?
    Charr: Your thin skin.

    Banquetto:  Good idea, I'm not sure why I did no think of that.  You write, you learn I guess. xD

    Semantikron:  Fair enough.  I actually intended the column to be a single article, but it seemed like many people enjoyed it, so I just kept going.  I could technically make it 102 xD, didn't know I was teaching a class.

    they need to add more options to amulet combos with precision and power.  i want an amulet with: 813 power / 580 precision / 580 toughness (or vitality bur prefer toughness).

    i want an amulet with precision/power but i dont want to make a canon glass build...

     

    doesnt make much sense exist so many runes combinations and with amulets, that are by far the most important item to create your build we have so litle options. 

    when the offical forum open i will create a topic sugesting add more amulets (maybe i will be surprised with BW2 and see more amulet options).

    Nah it's the second lecture of the course Builds 101, not a second course. :-)
