First set of builds to run through this are 4 of SirP's - he's building them at the moment, and will post when they are ready. For those that don't know, a small group of us are in IRC every day tossing ideas back and forth - it's where this came from originally.

What level are you building at? I've been working on a few comparison characters as discussed earlier (Warblade, Bard, Core T3 Cleric, Warmage/Beguiler, no homebrew, just enough optimization to feel competent).

Currently level 5. Above that was deemed too complicated to start with.  :smirk

Hey, if you feel like min-maxing the builds for us, we'd love that :D

I'd be interested in helping do that as well as testing out a few classes of my own. Optimization might skew the results, but it could be interesting to compare optimized vs. "normal" for the classes.

Any chance I can toss in some builds of my own? Probably the Husk, Nord's Blade, along with some others (is testing ACFs Kosher? if so, I have a Binder ACF and Barbarian ACf I would like to test out.)

It is, although this has sort of gone quiet for a while.

Now that Noumenon Drake is done I can re-do the Ethos party... the Overcomplicated party is done except for equipment.

I need to look at this again when I'm not passing out at my keyboard, but have somehow missed this until now.

Tagging it as a reminder :D
