Pathfinder class builds

After reading through the forums at paizo.com you’ll reach a point when you’ll really want to know what all those builds are that they are talking about. Luckily someone asked just this question and created a thread of all the articles out there on building the best Pathfinder characters. I am reposting the list here so that should the thread disappear we’ll still have the list to reference.

Here is the Original article.
