Nice.  Newer to the 3.0 mod and was wondering what you gundian and evoker builds look like.  Been awhile since I played, so any help would be appreciated.

I can't speak for Evokers,as I haven't dared that yet.As for gundians,here's what I've been doing for,say,half the game:

2x Surgecasters
Probably my favorite Templar weapons,along with Hestia's.Not only are they great against crowds,they also have great range so you're mostly safe.Being field-based damage dealers,they also work incredibly well with novas on-hit and elemental effects (ie Ignite!).
As a hefty bonus,shooting on the ground beneath flying enemies will damage them,so you don't have to worry about targetting them or using Heaven's Arc repeatedly.

As for skills,
Squire: max allowed
That's the meatshield minion,the one who'll take the beating while you snipe away.Maxxing him out is essential for the ability to equip more gear pieces,making him more sturdy in the process.

Companion: 1+
A single point will suffice,but more don't hurt.While this command is offensive in nature,it also allows you to indirectly "direct" your Squire back into the battlefield.Once he's in,he's more likely to taunt more enemies away from you.

Prayer of Healing: 2+
2 points in this bring the cooldown down to accptable levels for me,but extra points aren't useless.Not only is this a decent self-heal,it's also your only way to heal your Squire.

Challenge: 1+
Your basic crowd taunt.While it doesn't directly boost your survivability,it makes for great crowd control.You can take an angry mob away from your Squire,pull flying/fleeing enemies back to you,or just plain pull enemies in to then kite them properly.Really helps with the choice of guns too :P

Aura of Renewal: max allowed
This is probably among the best survivability boosters a Guardian has.Not only does it stack up to an obsene amount of enemies (256!),it also scales to your max HP so it's never useless.It's noteworthy though that it will be deactivated if you're poisoned.

That's it,more or less.Extra skillpoints will probably go to passives and Prayers for an offensive boost,and I'll probably try 2x Vorpal Slashers filled with novas on-hit.Given their rate of fire and many slots,they're rightfully famous for being excellent crowd weapons :)

That aside...Cascading Reaper  ;D

I tried to make a viable nova evoker, and it worked quite well, but damage and clear speed was, from my experience at least, less efficient than a "regular" one. 

About gundians, I'm surprised to see what Bryan did cause it differs a lot from my char.

I play multiaura + multifaction optional on naga 3.0 crazy slayer elite nm.

BM:
Aura of element 8
Aura of zeal 8
Aura of vengeance 4

Guardian:
Prayer of encouragement 8
Shield of faith 10 (put me to 17k shield at the moment)
Anchor 1
Spiritual strengh 6

Panic: 5 right clic (anchor+panic+encouragement is sufficient enough to face kill most of bosses).
Concussion rounds: 1 Left clic

all armor pieces are uber (uniques, 1 mythic, 1 white aug.)

full crit, full shield, middle range and full glass canon (no shield=death).

2 Vorpal slashers with novas (white augs), so 14 mods with on hit/on kill or both (mythics).

I must say it rocks...

Thanks for sharing your build Bryan, I will definitly try  it and compare both gameplays.

Thanks all.  Might try a few of these when i get done with my evoker.

Doing Arc Legion for leveling, as it is my favorite to run through but soon will switch to bone tree and crit.

Maybe I am wrong but how are you using both BM skills and Guardian?  I am pretty sure I am running just the 3.0 but don't have the options to use it all.

Thanks for sharing yours Hildos,sounds mighty interesting :)

I should've mentioned a few specifics though.For one,as a strictly personal choice I try to avoid BM skills so far to see how the Guardian skillset holds its ground in Nagahaku (and for early survivability :P).And most importantly,that's my build for below lv30,so much of it will change once gear and total skillpoints allow it.
Though I'm not too eager to change Surgecasters yet.I just love those buggers :P

Hm,I was under the impression that the option of "Global skills" was there when installing it.But hey,be that the case or not,I'd strongly suggest trying Dank's NagaOptionals 4.2.Has some very interesting...well,options :P

Aaaah! Nice to meet a "connaisseur" Violet !  :D

Let me give you the last one as a special dedicace. Bedlam is the greatest fire work maker of the game imo.

...even more festive.

I'm now officially aboard the nova train,as it makes Elite a total steamroll party.

Hildos,your nova Arc Legion seems to be the kind I prefer most.Sure,Slashers are great,Hu's and Hurris are great...But nothing beats the nova stream! :P

My latest Summoner is using Viridian Drakes and Chimeras to similar effect,though I mostly prefer shrapnel and Rebounder Bolts for crowded areas.Now I'm trying to properly augment Beryl Dragons...Constant damage,plus splash?Yes please!

Whoa! Lol, yeah, the Nova train rides across crowd control land in a very efficient way, indeed!

I stoped experiencing splash dmg gears-novas  since my "field weapons" tries were perfect disasters.

Realy glad to see it works with Beryl Dragon (18-22%-constant should have been catching my curiousity, damn!  ;D).

So mutch things to experiment...A naga online would be totaly crazy, definitly epileptical, and maybe also the greatest PC-crash-maker of all times.

That,we can agree on ;)

Edit: On that matter,I just unearthed this video and my jaw dropped.Drone discoball extraordinaire!
