I'd like to give some feedback and report some issues and errors this guide have.
Dodge: the 3rd sentence "Determines the..." is plain wrong...maybe a copy & paste error.
Power: Lacks the info that its countered by Dodge too like Precision.
Rifle: Granade launchers are Heavy Weapons(which is missing completely)
Social: With your tip to create a social Alt you suppress the Info that the char needs to be higher level than the merchant to gain any social effect.
Enhancement: Reinforce/Regenerate and Dissolve are gone after the combat revamp months ago.
I think you should give some general advices about stats and skills and pro/cons rather than hand out "finished" builds, which lacks losts of finetuning. So players can pick skills/stats themself and assemble a build to matching their style of play. But thats only me.
1) Dodge: "determines the basic values for melee and ranged defense" is correct.
And I don't copy and paste anything in this guide, save for mutations.
2) Power: Not really necessary as the Dodge description already says it counters Power.
3) Social: Yeah, will add.
4) Mutations are outdated because I can't be bothered to test them all.
It would cost me another 100 bucks of resets. I might just add them from the vendor info.
5) In regards to build, I already stated I don't like to just give general infos.
The builds on this guide are straight from the best players in the game.
Of course players can then tune them to their likings, but A LOT of players don't like/care to make a build or even about stats, just like other players don't like to craft, etc, so this will be very useful to them, on top of giving the best builds to all players.
99% of the people around don't like to be kept completely in the dark about game mechanics and discover everything themselves, especially
when fixing stuff costs real money
Reading guides is done for getting the best out of the game and becoming acknowledged, and avoid to waste money/time fixing mistakes, if you want to go by trial and error it's fine by me, as long as you don't come here to bash the readers and epeening about wasting time to discover stuff that's already been discovered.
It's like trying to craft a flu pill when you're ill instead of just buying it from the pharmacy, not really smart of ya.
