So yeah, going off the last few comments.
1. If a veteran guildie has a build they're proud of and are willing to share, they should hop on/join the forums and post it under our builds section. 2. We need to start communicating (1) in the guild and get more members active on here to help build this up. 3. Guild chat is probably the best place to properly discuss build ideas, but those in need should refer to builds hopefully posted by members following (1) in order to come into the discussion well informed and with a general framework they want to work with. 4. Refer to (2), We need to start getting guildies on the forums and actively participating so this whole thing can actually be a thing.
If there's anything you guys disagree with, let me know and we can refine this until we're all satisfied. However, atm SoCo is correct, this argument is going nowhere fast.

Agreed. That was basically my whole point. Telling the active forum users this stuff is pointless because we are all obviously already posting in the forums to try and be helpful. The people that need to hear this stuff are the ones NOT participating on the forums already. We only suggested going into guild chat because of how few guildies are on the forums. I just assume people want help sooner rather than later and waiting for someone to come along and post their NB bow/two-handed build (for this instance) could take weeks or months simply because of how few members we have using the forums.

Haha understandable man! I do not envy that situation!
Unfortunately it is a large and tedious task to get people signed up and active on the forums. It is going to take time and effort before we really see these forums lighting up with activity. The best way to promote the forums is to have content already here to refer people to. Hence why we started the Nirnhoned trait thread, the craglorn group finder thread, etc etc. It's all based on activity carrying over from in-game to the forums. We need people who have experience in different classes and builds to be on here periodically updating their own personal information on their builds. Then newer players or people who want to respec can see how some of the other guildies are doing it and have a one on one discussion with a person after seeing how they've been building their character. If we could get a decent number of different styles of personal builds posted it would greatly increase the amount of people we can then refer to said builds on the forums. So then let's start making it a point to keep telling people about the forums and the site and continue promoting people to sign up and actually use them.

I'm with Michael on the company part haha but maybe you should put it at the top of the guild notification and if people have questions simply say "have you referred to our forums" LOL that's what I say to newbies here at work

Lets get back to the subject at hand here. Benny, seeing as though none of us here have very supportive information, as of now, for your class and build. Your best bet is to hit up some online sources and find videos and links that pertain to what your looking for. That is what I did for my build and I am pretty sure most everyone has done it as well. As for the rest of us, including myself, if we are not comfortable posting our builds as of now for any reason, the least we could do is find helpful sources for those of us who are still questioning their builds and post them on here. Deltia is not the only person out there with great builds. For instance, Lefty Lucy is a PVP Tank build that looks absolutely amazing. It would be great if we could find all these great build ideas and post them on here to make it less of a scavenger hunt for everyone.
this thread blew up to the point of being off topic lol Rhiino has a good point of making a thread for each class and then branch out from each one with personal builds and other builds we have found surfing the web and then go from there
