Outdated, obsolete research builds that were on the main Research Build page are moved here.
Obsolete Research BuildsEdit
|The Works R34|
|The Works R34 - A+Moved on 12/11/2016.
Broken as of 18.104.22.168 (Changes to C250 makes this unoptimized as heck.)
Requirement: 590 RPs
Post Ascension : Requires around ~1e25 gems.
|Notation: Bold are direct mana regeneration/assistant sources, whereas underlined ones help with FC
gain and therefore are indirect mana regeneration sources. The remaining 7 are just the best production upgrades for vacant spots.
Important: Don’t affiliate with Drow before getting 5200 (650*8) Goblin Banks. With Dwarf Challenge 5 (All buildings count 20% more for all purposes.), you can reach 10 free TC casts per spell cast (S50) with 5417 Goblin Banks, or 9 free TC casts per spell cast with 4875 Goblin Banks.
Note: Dwarf Challenge 5 required, Drow Challenge 4 recommended combined with C250 and C305.

|The Sorcerer’s Apprentice R34+5/31/2016: Was removed on the 5/29/2016 following these comments: "100% Obsoleted by The Works (22.214.171.124) Edit 5/28/2016: Yes, needs to be moved to obsolete builds" (history)
U Goblin build for the Archwizard spell trophy (created after introduction of the Prestige challenges.)
Requirements: All the prestige challenges completed.
Most of the Archwizard builds out there were made before Prestige challenges were introduced. This one has been adjusted to work with the challenges. I started with “The Works” build and replaced some upgrades with production upgrades (to get more Goblin Banks) and added C250. My results were quite good — I finished my Archwizard run in less than 9 days, 6 hours. I started this at R39 with a gem count of 1.876e148. I had around a 4k max mana bonus to start with on S400. I do not have any of the gifts and did not use timewarps. I did scry a little (maybe a couple dozen times over the course of the run), but I’m not sure whether that would make a noticeable difference in the length of the run. I stopped casting combo strike when my mana regen exceeded my max mana. I think I might have been able to get away with fewer production upgrades, since I got to the required number of Goblin Banks in 12 minutes.
My final results were:

Non-Author Notes: Check D55, I'm pretty sure it will always be greater than D400 or D480 when doing a spell casting build.
|U Dwarf-Elves R30-R32|
|U Dwarf-Elves R30-32Moved on 4/6/2016 for reasons written in comment and forum post
Build created by Zmadnesss (Made on v.126.96.36.199)
Note: Build lacks on higher upgrades due to no experience. Feel free to add a suggestion.
Early Prestige Rush Build to boost Gems. Use at 1 Dvg (1E69) Gems. Slows down around 1 Notg (1E120) Gems. Can rush to 1 Qag (1E123) Gems with multiple runs. Use this build to unlock the higher prestige upgrades.

Gold: Diamond Pickaxe, Holy Light, Tax Collection
Edited by non-author: Fixed range, and information on build.
|Faceless R27+Moved both Faceless builds on the 3/4/2016 - not really obsolete, just found better.
Long Build, grows as time progresses, from having more buildings, and more Faceless play time (10x gems in 13h)
Range : ~Ttg (1E102)
"I’ve gone from 5e106 to 8e108 gems in 7 hours with a faceless run, but having spent 19 days in this reinc (27) probably factors in a lot so I doubt it’ll be as viable for me next time. Didn’t really math the build much, just took the seemingly biggest production boosts, some mana regen, and used Angelline."

|Faceless R28+Relies on Brainwave challenge upgrade to produce huge amount of assistants. With two 1-day runs I completed R28 in two days and with total time of 4 days in R29 I went from 400 Qitg (4e110) to 4 Sptg (4e114) gems with a 2-day run.
Since you dont need any assistant upgrades, there is some wiggle room in what upgrades to buy. From those you need one for FC (C105, C250, C400, D150, A400) and 1-2 mana upgrades (S30, S105, D135, A300)
Dont buy D200 and D330 before going into production phase. Headstart is 1 minute + 2 seconds per cast of Brainwave, or roughly 5 minutes per day, the assistants gained by S375 are time in minutes square.
|Angels R19(Moved on Jan 7th 2016)
Theme: Runs off an IGOT-like cycle. Using casts to boost both mana regen and assistants through C25 and D175, making the minimum R19 for the latter.
Bloodline: Druid Titan for <12h runs
Auto-cast : Run God’s Hand and TC on gold autocast in that order for one to two days – then unleash full combos in any order until you’re satisfied with your production.
Note : Don't buy Angelic Dominance (3,2) before starting with the production phase.
|NU Angel R40+|
|NU Angel R40+Medium length grower build.
Range: to 1 Sp (E24) gems
|NU Druid R43+|
|'NU Druid R43+'Description: This build relies on previously buffing time spent as evil, spells cast, and possibly mana produced. Very high production following a run for the Archwizard trophy.
Requires: Several days spent as evil. Drow challenge 5 completed. Best with 10 billion mana produced.
Buildup runs: The Works by Deworx in the special builds section or Ascended Goblins (Druid bloodline) in this section.
