Read this FIRST before posting!!
This section of the Rift Junkies forum is dedicated to creating a centralized library of builds for each of the four callings. In order to create some semblance of order the Rift Junkies team will be implementing rules in order to post in this section of the forum. These rules do not apply to any other section. These rules will be strictly enforced.
All threads creating not adhering to these rules will be moved to the General Mage talk sub-forum. We hope that the community will self-police itself and heavy handed moderation will not need to be employed.
Guidelines to posting in the Soul Theory and Build Guides forum.
1) Each thread created must be specific to a unique build. The thread subject must adhere to proper formats and terminology. (See Below)
2) Any questions regarding a specific build can and should be discussed inside the thread itself where the author can answer any questions and debate his theories.
3) There will be specific threads in each Calling's forum dedicated to general questions. For example, the Rogue Forum will contain one thread for tanking discussion, one for melee dps, one for ranged dps and a fourth for support. All general questions or build requests will be asked and answered in these threads. All created threads asking general questions will either be deleted or moved to these larger threads.
4) These forums will require the community's interaction in order to create a better library. As you read through each individual build and test them, the reader should vote, via the thread rating, one through five stars on how effective the build is at it's intended purpose. In the long run, users will be able to sort threads by rating and the better builds will rise to the top.
5) There will be a front page section dedicated to the best builds the community has created. If you are the author of a build that maintains high quality feedback and performs the best at it's intended job, Rift Junkies will put it into an official library of recommended builds. Your build thread must maintain positive ratings for some time before we move it into the official library. This feature has yet to be implemented.
