The DAO links are my faves, as I still playing it; currently in fact. And if any are ME1, those have been helpful, too.

Most other games have been less complex to play, and due to restrictions, are not as much fun for Build designs, IMO.

Fantastic thread, thank you! I'll be digging through this if automation fails, and reading regardless as I haven't seen some of these before.

Links to CC sliders in my signature.  But you'd need all the pages.  Probably the "show me your female qunari/elf" or "post your inquisitor" but there are like 500 pages in there.  :/

Outside of DAI, I want AreleX's builds for rogue, mage, and warrior for DA2.  

I'm sure there are ME1/2/3 builds but I'm too depressed from Bioware's announcement to focus.

While looking for something completely different, I stumbled on a post explaining the removal of healing spells from DAI, by Patrick Weekes. Added to OP.

This will be a good start for Origins. Add more later. The rogue dps one might be archived, which means its read only. You might run into that with a few of the better origins combat threads.

You mentioned DAI only, but a few people mentioned Origins and DA2. I think it'd be a good idea to open it to threads from all 3 games. If not, disregard this post.

Great job mate and thanks for taking it upon yourself to archive all this stuff. Once my internet is working again I'd be happy to help out with the archiving.

I've been thinking about doing a build writeup for my rift mage videos for a while now, I think I'll wait until you decide where to archive stuff and do it there.

Yeah, sorry, I've got my hands full just with DAI.

But there's something you can do to disaster proof those great threads.

Go to this page:

https://archive.org/web/

One-by-one, copy/paste a link into the Save Page Now box and press the Save Now button. Once it is done, copy the resulting archive link to a text file. Repeat for the rest of the links. That will insure that at least page 1 of those threads are saved someplace safe that anyone can get to online. You can then post a reply to the thread linked below, listing the original and the archive links for each.
