    Just want to say that this build is just flat out inspirational. Really adds a new dimension to the game and reinforces why these games are so great: you can play exactly how you want and turn the game into anything! 

    So, thank you, asgard for an amazing build!

    Thank you, sir.

    In the future, I will endeavor to give all my builds a solid, detailed RP foundation. Those that enjoy RP can follow it or adapt it, and those who don't can simply enjoy the build's mechanics.

    Just so we're clear, I'm not playing this build at the moment, but the Adept + and taking away the crosshair suggestions are freaking brilliantHaving a blast using both of those techniques on a DiD character I just started and it really boosts the immersion.

    Glad you liked the tips. I don't think I'll ever develop or even play another build that isn't on Adept+. It truly makes the game come alive when you can die instantly but also dish out some serious hurt.

    I'm currently playing a warrior so I'm throwing in a health every now and then, but at a very low ratio. I just don't want to get killcammed or roasted by a surprise mage (which nearly happened already). But it's great, because I can't just walk through a dungeon with no thought, but I also don't have to retreat and heal every 30 seconds.

    This is my contest gold right here, asgard. It was a pleasure "competing" with you, and I thank you for opening my eyes to a new way to truly enjoy archery in this game. :)

    Agreed.

    Would've liked to see a stronger connection to the Mythic Dawn, but it's still my favorite build from the contest (just not my favorite entry). It also has probably my favorite backstory of any build, except maybe the Heart of Pellitine. Really do love it, Asgard, hope to see more from you.

    That's the kind of insight I think we can all appreciate from our judges, Matt! I find it interesting that your favorite build wasn't your favorite entry. I personally think that while the connection to the Dawn may have been more fleeting than with other builds, it's no less strong for it: her backstory and entire motivation stem from the impact the Camoran name has had on her life and in this case that's some powerful shit. Just my own opinion of course, though!

    Thanks Matt.

    New build will be ready soon©, unless I bump into playability issues at higher levels.
