Can you tell me which ones are viable?


Many of the guides here will probably be outdated since they seems to be from before Sigma was released. Every few months, 1 or more talent trees are remade + more and more game changes gets implemented. If you are 100% new, then it would probably be better for you to follow one of the newer guides that are listed as having little to no gear/skill requirements, even more so since many of the newer guides will go through the current progression/skills/challenges etc. Chuck can probably tell you which are viable but even the viable guides might have large holes in them, which doesn't help a new player.

Created a complete character guide
the main cores of the builds are still the same (gameplay + main skills to use) . what changed the most is regarding the itemisation , but that can easy be adapted if you just take a good look at the documentation and see what could fit best to replace your slots

more than half of the builds can keep the same skillplan in Sigma . if you take the barbarian or sorceress for example , there isn't any significant change in Sigma compared to 2017 .

if you take a look at the new guides section , you may find 3 or 4 decent guides between the huge amount of worthless ones .

good luck !
