Charan posts too much
Definitely worth the read, an analysis of why and how Charan does character builds. If you read nothing else, read the Assassin's Creed spoiler tag. I don't do exactly the same, but we all have similar definitions of success. Usually this involves bringing a build to whatever point we consider "winning the game" and moving on.
You'll see a lot more numbers and mechanics efficiency talk in my posts concerning building and playing characters, where Charan goes for style points instead. End goal is not too dissimilar though: this is my character, I made it, it works how I want it to, I win the game. Let's play again!
(Sometimes I lose. Oh well, RIP. Let's play again!)
