Builds and Roles in Champions Online

By Reuben Waters -

Unlike traditional MMOGs, characters in 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.
