Why list all the effects?

Just for anyone new to krieg or people who don’t remember what the skill does can see them without having to looking in the game or somewhere else.


Why post photos of items when making a how-to guide.

Aesthetics and fluidity. I applaud the extra work be put in.

He didn’t mention it was.

It’s his right to set it up as he pleases.

Discuss the content. Not the method.

I don’t mind any questions, but yeah I want to make a complete guide
I will put gear, and parts for them by this coming Tuesday. Maybe even a leveling guide.

Feel free to add any content you so please, also if you need a hand accumulating anything, please feel free to ask. I’ll be glad to lend a hand.

The only thing I could use was some help with parts/prefixes maybe a link to the charts for them.

I can send you a full guide to those later tonight, will that do?

A link or what? But yeah that will work thanks.

Never said he shouldn’t/can’t.
I asked him a simple question, not said anything about him being allowed/not allowed to do so.

And I discussed his prerogative.

I feel like you’re missing the point, but I’m not derailing the gentleman’s thread. You’ve made your point on that matter clear. Let’s concentrate on his build.



Anyway, @Piemanlee, what gear are you going to be using?

Dolby. :slight_smile:


Krieg_krazy is find I don’t mind it
Also gear will be posted by Monday
Also it’s not so much a guide but just a build
