Welcome to The Character Build Archives! On this page all of the group's character builds can be navigated to quickly through our tag network. Builds found here are specialized by archetype and playstyle by their original author so you can refine your search and find the perfect Skyrim character.
Any build that you choose to add to the archive is allowed 3 playstyle tags, 1 race tag, 1 rank tag, and the "Character Build Mods" tag if the build requires them. Adding more than 3 group tags will result in the host removing them.
These tags are unique in that they require quotation marks around them and "Character Build" at the beginning. For example, "Character Build Thief" (quotation marks included), is how you'd format the thief playstyle tag on your build.
The rank tag determines a build's position in the Character Build Rankings, so ensure that you understand the ranking system before adding your tag. While all the other tags are optional, every build is required to have a rank tag that corresponds to its number of likes. More information on the group ranks and scoring can be found in detail on this page.
When creating the tag for your build use this format: Rank:Bloodworks or Rank:Mythic.
Character Building Events:
The event builds do not use rank tags but rather their own unique tag for whichever event they are for. They also use the Event Build: prefix. To see the Event Builds, simply click the following links.
Character Building Contests:
You can search previous contests by their contest tag (Contest1 for The Mythic Dawn, Contest2 for Racial Builds) or by their placement in the contest (Contest Gold for first place, Contest Silver for second place, Contest Bronze for third place). Contests are quite different from events as there are clear winners chosen.
Hidden Gem Spotlights:
Hidden Gem Spotlights are a showcase of sorts done for those builds that seem to fly under the radar, unseen by the general population of the Skyrim Blog. You can find them here by simply clicking on the Hidden Gem Spotlight tag.
The Character Building Discussion tag is for group discussions that aren't character builds themselves but somehow pertain to character building. Also, you can click on this tag to look at past Character Build Showcases.

ouch, no money tag.
Shouldn't it be sparkling?
YAY! (Mostly just a bump to get notifications, as you were.)
Mainly to screw with you some, I assume.
Hmm, I did delete one of your bumps earlier Psi, I'm glad it's not just me that's noticed your little habit...
Sorry. :( Won't let it happen again. I mean, after this one...
