That will always be true. The reason why I'm still here is because of so many failures, theory crafting , YouTube , chatting a lot , helping others , asking many questions , looking at many builds and making my own unique build that succeeds or fails. I almost quit the game , until I found forums.
What was even cooler is that aftermath guide I made and so much feedback and help and the guide was unique because it wasn't a full blown build but a simple guide as I didn't have elixir at those times. My very first post too lol.
