Thanks...I know...I didn't want to edit it while Yunru was in the middle of editing it....I always find that disconcerting when that happens at work. :)
 

Gladius Legis

I won't do this to anyone else's guide, but for the Paladin entries specifically, since I wrote them both, I marked Oathbound as outdated. My Word is My Sword is an updated version of that old guide.

Hey took some time to mucking around with the formatting and added some other guides from the GITP, I'll add it to the first post in a spoiler in case no one likes the changes done.

Possibly a Idiot.
A significant number of these threads are outdated. Perhaps it's time to trim the fat, and shift everything that doesn't cover up to XGtE into the outdated section.

Nope. Outdated means the information is incorrect, not incomplete.

Outdated literally means "Out of date." If it's incorrect, the information should be de-listed. In fact, all but one of the current "Outdated" links should be dropped, because they don't link to anything, and are useless because of that.

And none of it's "out of date" so your argument's not relevant.

Also dead links do get pruned, that's why there aren't any (outside of the archival section).
