Guide to the Guide Forums - Updated 16th August 2013

Postby Tressa » Sun 16 Jun 2013 16:17

Your one-stop resource for the guide forums: A consolidated list of guides, tutorials, videos and gameplay data!

Please note this list does not constitute a rating by my part. I simply picked the most popular tutorials for each topic. If something is missing or you wish to submit a new guide, please post in this thread and I get to it asap.

All feedback is very much welcome. I plan to continually update the list to keep it useful.

Blue denotes video guides, Green offsite links, Red guides newly included or updated by the author.

Hi, would it be possible to provide you with steam links, rather than forum links? I just update my steam guide a lot more frequently, and also have a russian verision.
