Builds in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous are made up of your Class Features, Abilities, Ability Scores, Feats, Spells and your Weapons, Armor and Skills. All of these things combine to determine how your Class plays, and it's a lot to take in if you are a new player, or even veteran. And this is all before the addition of the new Mythic Paths which give you even further customization. (When you complete quest The Burning City and A Blow from the Sky, you will get 1 level of Mythic Hero class.)
Class Builds are made up of what Attributes to begin the game with, what Race to play, along with what Classes and Archetypes to choose. Beyond that are comprehensive tables of what Abilities you unlock at each Archetype Level, and what Feats to take to optimize these Builds. Final "unbuffed" BAB is even listed so you can see how many Attacks each Build gets at level 20.
All Companions have a Class, and it is important to have a complete Party formation. It's not recommended to Multiclass, and turn Auto Leveling up for your Companions, to only manage their equipment. You can achieve better control by turning on turn-based combat when it's necessary.

Cavalier Build: How to / Class Guide
The Cavalier Class is one of the new Classes. In this Guide you’ll learn not only how to play the Cavalier Class, but also what the differences are between the Cavalier Archetypes: Beast Rider, Cavalier of the Paw, Disciple of the Pike, Fearsome Leader, Gendarme, Knight of the Wall, and Standard Bearer.
There will of course be tips about which Abilities, Skills and Feats to take, along with some suggestions about how to play the Class effectively (including how Mounted Combat Works in Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous). This will not be a copy of the Pathfinder Handbook, and I will attempt to summarize things (where applicable) to make it easier to understand, because I feel that a big part of the reason people need Guides for Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, is that it can be a bit overwhelming to sift through this on your own. If you’re new to Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous, or you would just like an overview of the Cavalier Class and how to make an effective one, this Cavalier Build Guide is for you.

Best Class in Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous
Best Class in Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous – In this Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous article I want to discuss what the Best Class for you is, or how you choose a Class if you’re new to the game. Now that WotR has finally released in full, a lot of people have been asking the questions: “What Class should I play?“, and “What is the best Class for me?“. While it’s not an easy question to answer there are some ways to narrow it down for you. How exactly you go about doing that is what I’ll explain in this Guide. Some of these things will be obvious, but others not so much.

Only shitty builds
Make nice build guides that must have taken ages to put together, don't bother to actually add the links to build guides page. Well fixed now..
There is no +dex + int Aasimar
Damn bro did you really just rip these builds from InEffects kingmaker guide?
Can some suggests a good two handed weapon build please (Great sword preferred)
Unless I'm missing something the (2) Barbarian / 9 Aldori SwordLord / 9 Duelist isn't possible (not without cheats at least).
The prerequisite feats for Aldori SwordLord are Dazzling Display
Weapon Finesse, Proficiencies: Dueling Sword, and Weapon Focus (Dueling Sword). A Human Barbarian only gets two feats at first level and none at second level.
Dex Scion doesn't work as Longsword is not a Finesse Weapon
