This thread will try to include all the important threads related to minmaxing and character optimization on this board. I nicked the concept of this thread from Surreal
whose version can be found here: Click for Handy Links
/4e Handy Links.
For now I will limit myself to reserving two posts in addition to this and hope that is enough for the possible future needs as well. Should anything be added here, give me a holler either via a PM or by posting here and I will consider adding the thread.
For more reference material for optimization work: Lists of stuff
This one is for clarifications regarding the rules: Unofficial Errata Project subforum
Also, here is a custom tool for searching around the BG forums: BG search.
The format will be as follows:-Handy link: Map to the world of Minmaxing
