Unlike traditional MMOGs, characters in href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/co" target="_blank"> style="font-style: italic;">Champions Online
need not conform to rigidly defined classes, or perhaps more
importantly, the standard roles typically associated with a class-based
system. As you progress and unlock new powers, talents and advantages,
you’re free to pick and choose exactly what path your
character will ultimately follow.

Taking things one step further, the role you assume in combat can also
be altered through the use of Builds. The system is fairly robust and
allows you to switch between offensive, defensive, balanced or support
roles at the drop of an irradiated hat. To help players better
understand the impact each of these roles can make and how they fit
into the grand scheme of builds in CO, we’ve put together a
extensive guide on all things build related.
