Thanks for the response. Actually, we have never required students to "use" the Hilbert Guide or to respec according to it, only to "read" it. Here are the precise words from from the "To Do" list you are referring to:

"Read the Hilbert Guide (http://hilbertguide.com/). Coaches will assume that you have read this carefully."

Please keep in mind that Boot Camp is PvP Kindergarten. It is meant to orient students to the basic building blocks of PvP. To this end, the Hilbert Guide is quite successful, and I could give you a long list of virtues that make it currently the best document to date for such a cause. Does this mean that it is perfect or even the optimal guide all PvP needs? No, of course not. But it serves our purposes in Boot Camp as a compass in the often confusing world of PvP.

If you are interested in builds, our second session (Stage B in the curriculum) will be covered in the January session, which could can register for here: http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=501511

Thanks again for taking the time to offer feedback. We know that there are certainly other forums where you could be spending your time. Please let us know if we can help you in any other way.
