Which Traits to Use in Elder Scrolls Online


Though there is fairly little variety in gear stats in The Elder Scrolls Online, there are still optimal setups you can use to maximize its effectiveness. Outside of set bonuses and enchants you can only customize traits when crafting your equipment, so making sure they are the most optimal ones is even more important. In this guide you’ll learn exactly which traits are best on your gear no matter the build or setup! If you don’t want to read the boring details, click here to jump directly to the table…

Shredder: Dual Wield Physical Damage Build

PoE Skill Tree

After patch 1.0.0 (PoE release) my old build got nerfed significantly. It required quite a lot of changes to be viable again and just didn’t have the same flavor. Nevertheless I decided to stick with it as pretty much every other build is boring to play for me. The old goals of the build are still the same: making a strong melee character with high survivability who is able to solo any content in the game. Despite strong nerfs the build still manages to do plenty of DPS and is…

Using Orbs of Chance For Loot

Path of Exile combat

There’s only one way of getting great loot in Path of Exile: get lucky. Loot is in integral part of the game and has its value, and we all want the best equipment possible for our characters. The only consistent way to get great endgame items is to craft them, which requires an enormous amount of currency but is somewhat less RNG based, depending on how much you’re willing to invest. If you’re hoping for an item to drop for you then you’re in for a rough ride. Items which…

[Outdated] Dual Wield Physical Damage Duelist/Marauder Build

Path of Exile Duelist Ascendancy

After leveling several characters and even more full respecs I’ve had trouble finding a fun and effective build that I wanted to play with. That is until I decided to make my own dual-wielding Duelist class build focused on Dual Strike and Cleave as main DPS tools. The point was to make a melee character with strong DPS and even better survivability to be able to solo any content in Path of Exile. Note that this build (which I named The Shredder) can easily be used on a Marauder as…

Path Of Exile Loot Guide

PoE Divination Cards

PoE is a complex game. After the shock and awe caused by the passive skill tree, I think the second biggest impact comes from the itemization. PoE’s economy, even at this early stage, is convoluted and involves much more than just gear. Skills are itemized, hell, even places are going to be itemized soon in the form of maps. New players are overloaded with this information, which makes it very hard to tell what is worth keeping and what is vendor trash. I think it’s important to give newcomers guidance…

In Star Trek there are tons of items with different damage types, resistances and bonuses, and all of them also have marks. While most of the time it’s not too hard to figure out which one you should use, knowing what those Acc, Reg, Pol and dozens of other abbreviations do is really helpful. Whether you will choose Tetryon or Polaron damage reduction on your shields, or a deflector with Sensors or Sensor Probes bonuses is up to you, but you can use this list as a reference of all…
