Most likely repeating myself here but in an action game like DDO, the best builds or the best items aren't needed to succeed in any content. What it does though is make it easier/faster and with much less risk of failing.
What is bad though is that many people are looking for the facerolling builds even though they are not needed. It's fine, any powergamer will chose whatever is the strongest that's just understandable and makes sense. Good thing here, those same powergamers are the one looking for a challenge.
It hurts because the diversity of builds is affected... but the reasons so seem mostly hype related. There's still room for so many builds in this game... it's just forum talks going on here again.
