New Horizons has opened up fresh adventures across all of Sarnaut as our heroes wage epic battles in the astral and attempt to build a safe haven on their own personal allod! With fresh faces joining the war against and enemy factions and the gods we thought it was time to bring back our celebrated event, Pimp My Build!
Levelling your character is a special experience, and through the changes brought by the updates, players might feel a little disorientated. Fantastic improvements have been made to the Paladin, Bard and Psionicist in particular, but we also know that every class has seen a few modifications since our last Pimp My Build contest. The best way to find the full potential for your class, whether a new player or old, is by sharing information and helping out friends. This is also the most fun way to learn and for that reason we have a special event that will be returning ...And as you are all apprehending the adaptation to a new gameplay, the Allods Online team decided to help you out in this re-discovery, with a new edition of Pimp my Build for the New Horizons update!
The rules remain the same:
1) Go to the Guild Portal and find your classes section
2) Introduce yourself: your character's name, guild and the role you have in the party, and why you like this gameplay.
3) Changes brought by the latest updates, how it modified your build and how did you adapt it to your style.
4) Your build: What type of build is it (PVE, PVP, Raid, Hybrid, which specialisation), what are the spells and rubies picked and why this choice.
5) How do you play your class now, what you like and don't like about it.
6) Players can post only one guide each
For a few tips on how you should approach this contest simply think of what you would look for in a guide to your class if you were a completely new player to Allods Online. Be clear and use language that is understandable, make it stand out from the crowd as best you can (think of layout and including images), give all the information you think is necessary (especially how the class has changed recently) and, of course, originality always goes a long way with our jury!
Still in need of some inspiration? How about checking out the winners of the last contest!
Don't forget you will receive the Droplets of Death in your mailbox when you will connect to Allods Online, which will allow you to test all the builds possible and help master your class for 7 days!
This event will officially start today, August 8th (at the servers' opening), and will finish three weeks later on August 29th at 23:59 WET.
After this date the Allods Online team will put together scorecards for our Player Run Judging Panels, they will each individually score every build for the clas sthey are marking and allow us to gather average scores for each entry! To provide you with a little extra boost for this event we're also going to give away these fantastic prizes:
5000 Premium Crystals
|2nd||4000 Premium Crystals|
|3rd||3500 Premium Crystals|
|4th||3000 Premium Crystals|

Hi! I wonder if random players will be judges this time?
Because I believe it is a lot more unfair than if GM's were judges.
Some people thought some guides were "worse" just because they didn't like the one who made it.
I just wonder so I can decide how much time and effort I want to spend on making this guide as good as possible.
Players judging again and their scores will be reviewed like last time. Anyone wanting to apply to be a judge can contact me from next week.
Okey, thanks for reply :)
I would really apriciate if u could tell us when will the results be published, thanks.
It won't be for about a week Argonous. Scorecards for each class are just going out today and tomorrow so we need to give the judges time to get them back to us
ok tnx :)
seems it took even more than a week :)
Won't be tell next week now guys, waiting on completed scorecards for two classes and I wantt all results to go together
another week ?!?! ...
Should be on Wednesay, it's a tough task reading and marking all the guides in your spare time, if people needed the weekend that's fine because they're doing us all a favour by helping.
Thanks for info :-)
Please don't say next week.
