NHL 24 Best Builds Guide & World of Chel Tips

NHL 24 Best Builds World of Chel

One of the biggest focal points for upgrades this year was World of Chel, but they didn't change the formula too much when it comes to the NHL 24 best builds. In fact, the biggest impact will actually be a result of gameplay changes that alter meta strategies and the importance of certain attributes.

Overall, most of the World of Child builds that worked in NHL 23 are going to be solid choices in NHL 24 as only a few rare unique classes have been added. For new and existing players, you'll always want to have a versatile set of loadouts so you're ready for any situation.

That starts with having at least one viable build in your WOC loadouts for every position you could end up playing. While forward builds will be similar if you're at wing or center, the primary difference between those positions will be how many points you pour into the faceoffs attrribute.

Several of your NHL 24 ratings will be more impacted by your own skill level on the ice, but you want the best faceoff stats possible as even a perfectly timed attempt can fail if your attribute is too low. With so many top notch players in NHL 24 World of Chel, every single center build needs to maximize their faceoff ratings.

Acceleration seems to have a slightly more significant impact this year, so speedy builds at wing or defenseman should keep that in mind. One other change is that endurance and strength seem to be more important, as the upgraded physics impact your recovery more after a big hit or when low on stamina. 

Ultimately, you really need to pinpoint what fits your style, so try several different loadouts and take them into Pro-Am to help decide if a few minor tweaks will help you make the most out of the best builds in NHL 24. Also, for new players, it's worth noting that the builds in World of Chel don't perfectly matchup with your Archetype in Be A Pro, though there are similarities between each system.

We've got top choices below outlining a great starter loadout and the best builds in NHL 24 at forward, defense, and goalie. For players seeking more options, we have extensive guides for each position here:

Above, you'll find nearly a dozen different elite NHL 24 builds across all three positions. If you're looking for a different flavor than what we've got below, check these out to see which one is the perfect fit for your style.
