How do you go about making your own builds and figuring out how well they perform? I realize that everything is perfectly viable in open world, but for those of you that rock your own builds, how do you create your own priority list/rotation for that build? Do you just mix and match traits until you find something that works for you?
I've gotten a few classes to 80 now and spent a good amount of time on the training dummies across almost every class and elite spec. I can follow rotations fairly well, and I've learned plenty from the videos I've watched and the guides I've read, but I'm still at a loss as to how anyone manages to throw their own build together. Right now, I'm looking to play a GS + D/D Spellbreaker and a GS + LB Soulbeast in Open World/Dungeons(sometimes solo, other times not), but I'm not sure how to approach learning these since most of the resources out there only have templates for meta builds. For the record, I don't intend to curse anyone by entering high-end PvE with these builds. I know they're likely sub-optimal weapon combos, but I'd still like to learn how to play efficiently with what I'm choosing to go with.
So, for those of you that craft your own builds and learn them.. what's your process?
