There are many different builds; which one you use will depend on what you're trying to accomplish and how far into the game you are:
Intermediate builds assume you are near the end of a legend and have a lot of gold to spare, or will help you get more. They often use pets and key items that need to be built up as well. They don't use epic equipment since you're expected to legend some more and epic coins are what persist through a legend, not the equipment itself.
Advanced builds readily use epic coins. They are for completing the daily dungeon in a single attempt, powering through mastery stages, you also have a safe spot where you take a break and have the lucky fountain and you also have a shop where you by potions and weapon etc and completing story mode challenges. They also focus on items that get consumed.
Specific builds are for beating special challenges, such as some of the mini games and daily dungeons that have restrictions.
Other builds are mostly gimmicky and for fun. They include some of the theme gear like all the "ninja" gear, or all the "airstream" gear.
