About Open World

This is the Open World section. Builds below are designed specifically for Open World, and are not designed with raid gear in mind. If you are looking for a one-size-fits-all gear set, it is recommended to use one of our Raid Builds instead. If you are specifically searching for an Open World build, this is the place to be.

General Builds

Builds meant for general open world. Useful for general open world and story-mode play, such as events, zerging, map completion, and random shenanigans.
