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Many of the guides here will probably be outdated since they seems to be from before Sigma was released.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.

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 !

Hi Chuck... I'm (still) playing 2017... I'm trying build the "vesseldin" pally . But I have a problema: "buff your character with VoJ and VoR". Well, I only can place points in the "shadow tree" after get VoJ skill. That's mean no rapture, no sacred armor...and ofc, no solstice and equinox... I'm missing something? I don't place skill points in any holy or unholy tree, only in shadow. What I'm doing wrong? Or the game was modified and the build don't Works in 2017?

Hello , the build was updated to Sigma (im sure you see a Sigma tag in front of the name), but in a different thread . i have only used the older miniguide for copy/paste-ing some of the template and preparing the draft for the guide , reason why it is now unfinished here .

you may find the previous version , that works in 2017 here ( open the page offline ) : https://www61.zippyshare.com/v/97hDvEyT/file.html

One last question... what do you get when yu reach lvl 121? I understand that the last breakpoint for skills is lvl 120... or when you reach lvl 121 you get a final unlock, and you don't lose or gain any xp anymore, like the old lvl 120? I'm still on 120, and the xp gain is very slow... so, in short, reach lvl 120 is worth?

You gain acess to XIS runewords in MXL 2017

That's the only useful thing? Hmmm don't seems too much worth, cause I have zero xis runes... and I can't unsocket it if the roll is really bad... in the old times, first versions, I farm for a Natasha legacy... and was really painfull (and the roll sucks, onthe the oils help to improve the result)... right now, get even 1 xis rw takes too much time...

In the end, thanks for the information...
