Several members have asked before, "Why can't I see my own guide in the guide list?"

Well, that's because we have a requirement for a guide to be considered a "Full Guide" instead of a "Build Only" and be shown by default.

That one is:
  • The guide must have at least 2.500 characters

However, we also have some rules and notes:
  • The 2.500 characters includes all the BBCode and letters used in the guide.
  • Copying random text into the guide to make it have more than 5.000 characters is not allowed.


That's about it for now, for any other extra questions regarding guides, please post in this thread or section.

Doesn't it have to include a build too? Like I can't have 2 builds (carry, semi-carry) and not have a skill build nor item build.

I don't think it's a must, you can have as many builds as you like.

I think it may not count as a full guide if you don't fill out all 25 skill selections, and at least 1 item, but I'm not positive. Usually the thing people miss is the 5k character requirement.

No, Sando's guides do not have stat upgrades once every skill is maxed.

It does show up, sometimes it takes a while for the site to update.

It's 5000 of course. Five thousand.
