    I liked your builds. Thank you and great work. ^^

    • admin says:

      Thanks a lot. I appreciate it. I get lots of people who have a question on builds. I rarely get posters who say they like my builds. Even more rarely do I get posters that say they just appreciate my builds who have no other questions.

      It takes significant time to put builds together, but, then again, I like doing it and like sharing them.

        I can’t believe you don’t get more comments. This site is a clear-cut, five star, regal example of guides.,Easily the best part is your clarity.

          This place is absolutely amazing and some of these build are so mean I love it keep up the good work cause this is awesome

  2. Timothy Bow says:

    This site is really great. I really enjoy looking at the builds and just thinking about how they would fit into my current group. My only critisism is that a few of the builds are pretty hard to build from level 1. All in all a very fun site.

  3. RogueMD says:

    Thanks for the great site. I enjoy your builds; very clever and thought provoking. You seem to know how to get the most out of the mountain of information out there.

  4. George T says:

    Great job! very useful builds :) maybe that’s why my GM calls me abuser? :P

  5. Ben says:

    Hey, just wanted to say that this site is a great resource for optimization without using many cheap tricks. Thanks.

  6. Timothy Bow says:

    Hello, I bought your skills pdf and am really looking forward to ruining my DM’s day with level 1 Battle Cat shenanigans. Is there any way to donate to the site, or perhaps pay for a custom, personal, optibuild?

    • admin says:

      Cool. Let me know how it went. Custom person builds? I might do that someday. Good idea. Donations? First, thanks for buying the PDF. That is support. I may add some way to donate to the site. We will see.

  7. Dineen says:


    Thanks for the tips and tricks. :)

    I just wanted to say awesome reading, and I purchased the skills/witch pdfs…

    I do have some questions, particularly on the Half-Orc Witch… Could I email them to you? Don’t want to spoil anything for the PDF.

    Thanks again!

  8. I wanted to see if you could help me out. My GM is starting a goblinoid campaign and I’m looking for an illusionist/necromancer build. Any thoughts?

  9. Yours is the first website I go to for researching optimized builds. Thank you. May I would love to see a non-lethal, possibly sap build from you.

    • admin says:

      Hey Matthew, that Sap build you were asking about is in the Slayer PDF Part 1. Get it and let me know what you think. I hope it lives up to what you were expecting. Best case scenario, I think I had it doing over 300 points of damage in a single round.

      If you have any questions about it, you contact me.

    i love your builds thank you so much i just fell in love with the Eldritch knight archer and the Wizard spellslinger i would love to see more builds in the future possibly an optimized cavalier i’d imagine that would be fun but again thanks for the builds and i hope to see more coming up soon

    • admin says:

      I am glad that you had fun with the archer and Spellslinger. Right now I am focusing of the new Hybrid Classes and making guides and PDFs for them.

      That said, I believe that one of two of them will have a dip into Cavalier. If and when they do, I will let you know.

      Thanks for the post

  11. MLG says:

    also i just thought of this and would really love to see it, how about a optimized werewolf/ lycanthrope build maybe some thing like a beast totem werewolf barbarian pretty please :)

    • admin says:

      Most GMs won’t allow their players to be a werewolf. That said, the kind of character that everyone could play that would fall into the category you are thinking about is a natural weapon Bloodrager. The Bloodrager guide is completed and there will soon be a PDF that will have a natural weapon character included.

      If your GM allows you to be a werewolf, then converting the build that will be in the PDF to a werwolf should be easy.

      Keep enjoying the game and enjoying this site. Talk to you later man.
