The goal of our guides is to show you the overall "optimal" options for building your character. If you do not wish to dig through walls of text then you may like our visual "cut to the chase" approach.

📚 Where do you get this data from?

We use algorithms to parse big data chunks from Top 1% players from Arena and RBG leaderboards using the official Blizzard API. We believe that statistics is a very reliable method for determining solid choices for end-game optimization.
