Archival/overhaul of builds

What shall we do when a build that has been tested by at least one person becomes either archived or changed after the test within this project's parameters? I'd personally keep test results for archived teams (unless the project pages become too cluttered in the process) and suggest the removal of results for changed builds as they don't anymore apply – or at least mark them as likely outdated due to page changes. --Krschkr (talk) 10:09, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

For overhauls -- I completed testing for the BiP melee support build in both its previously vetted pre-2019 version and its 2019 revamp; obviously the more recent version is the one I placed in the project page. The older test I placed in my user page; imo it's only relevant if I'm making a case for one build over another, and discussion on the Build Talk page can reference my user page if it comes to that. For archives -- no opinion atm. Juniper real (talk) 12:44, 29 May 2019 (UTC)
I created an archive subpage for invalidated test reports. --Krschkr (talk) 15:14, 5 July 2020 (UTC)

State of this project?

Was curious if there is still some work being done on this project, or if it is at a stable place? I may have some interest in contributing. Sonofthort (talk) 13:21, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

You can always contribute your findings, even if other people have stopped (actually it's even more helpful for you to do so then). -Toraen (talk) 18:33, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
Since there were no suggestions on how to improve the testing route and a couple of tests have been submitted already, the project is now in the active test phase. Contributions are very welcome. --Krschkr (talk) 14:02, 5 July 2020 (UTC)

Working proposal for evaluating farming builds

Hey there. So I was bored and threw the following together: User:Us3r1OO425457/Farm_Evaluation :D. Let me know what you think if you get a chance. Obviously, some of my "average item values" could be way off, but just wanted to show the structure of this idea more than anything. As a next step, I would like to use this working proposal to evaluate a build or two, to demonstrate what a report and score would look like. Us3r1OO425457 (talk) 02:39, 10 December 2020 (UTC)

Since I'm so very much into not farming I can't really contribute to standardized evaluations of farming builds despite I think they'd be very beneficial. I'd personally keep at least one good farm for each material (so people can farm materials to craft NPC weaponry), something that reliably generates gold (general loot) and then specialty farms that can drop into the archive and resurface depending on the market situation (skins). I'd also like to note that I've once performed a farm for 30 minutes, which was not only a major waste of time, but also helped to show RNG influences that eventually showed that the build was much worse than initially suspected. A standardized farming evaluation should require lenghty or numerous tests. --Krschkr (talk) 19:12, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
