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.
