I assumed OP was asking for the same thing I've been desperately searching for--information. It's hard to do any meaningful experimentation without details like final spell rank information or knowing whether something stacks additively, multiplicatively, or not at all.

It is hard to do any theorycrafting until we see endgame, remember EJs specs builds guides etc are geared toward endgame raiding. As of now no one has seen the endgame therefore any level 50 builds are just a lot of speculation. I highly recommend first finding the build you like and fits your playstyle, then as you hit 50 I am sure a lot of questions that you had in your head will be fleshed out by then.

I honestly do not think cookie cutter builds will be best, there are just way too many variables

More variables rarely increases the number of viable builds, it just better obscures them.

There will be cookie cutter builds; this is a given. What Trion can affect is is how much viable freedom there is within these builds and the number of viable builds per task.

I am not so sure of that, what I meant as variables was the options in the game, Raiding PvP, 5 mans etc. In other games you had one toon with either one or two spec options depending on the game. Here you have up to 4 roles with 9 souls, will there be certain souls that are needed to make a viable spec I am sure but I don't think people are going to copy so and sos if theres is performing just as well.

I mean the whole warriors are the only tank in 9/10 games just went out the window, Riftstalkers can tank just as well and they are rogues, splash heals from a Marksman/Ranger/Bard might be the difference between winning and losing an encounter, while still doing great dps. I don't disagree with totaly with you but besides the hardcore raiders which are sually only 10% of the population people are not going to change what the enjoy doing if it is 95% as effective

This is a mmo without add ons and or a open ui. Don't expect young developers to get too excited about this game like ugh, wow. For young developers this is the game. Alot of these information tools have developed into full blown add ons. Recount example number 1.

Although EJ has some good information and is very useful, I still hope such a site will never arise for Rift.

Main reason is that such a site (and also addons like DBM, Recount and Omen) can be used in a bad way. Some players will just blindly take over rotations and specs without ever thinking about it or find it out for themselves. Resulting in bad play or e-peen attitude instead of utilizing their character/encounter.

Right now we have a guild site http://riftbrotherhood.com and we plan to make it a Theory Crafting site as well. We have been hard at work at the moment getting the site in place and a theme in place.
