    Build advice ettique

    When you're looking for advice on a specific character build that is single classed (or mostly so), is it better to create a new thread, or to ask it in an appropriate guide.

    Putting it in a guide means everyone from now to the death of the edition will see it - which could be gold if you've got a unique build, or could be dross if you're covering details already covering in the guide.

    Creating a new thread has the opposite - have as much conversation without spamming the permanent links, but anything new will be lost much quicker since it's not stickied. This doesn't stop a summary of "hey, I found X+Y to be a good combo" in a guide, but that's an extra step that may or may not happen.

    In the guide works for me. I check the guides all the time. Either works though, I try to help out and n builds as much as possible.

    Etiquette or ethics?

    Both work, but like in basketball when you aim between the rim and the board, the ball rebounds back to your hands.
