    Do you like Subsubclasses?

    Do you like Subsubclasses?

    Like the Land Druid, the Totem Barbarian, the Dragon Sorceror, the Divine Soul Sorceror, and the Storm Herald Barbarian for example.

    I don't use them, but I am happy to have them as options for those who enjoy the sub-sub-classes.

    Yes. I love them so much that I wish they had made fewer base classes with general progression (Warrior, Rogue, Mage, Priest) and expanded on the subclasses even further. Kind of a more extreme version of 2e.

    Are you just asking about subclasses? Or are subsubclasses somehow a thing?

    I don't like the warlock thing, where they have two subclasses, if that's what you're asking (though I don't think you are).

    I'm talking about subclasses with an extra choice Point.

    Like Totem Barbarian can choose between Eagle, Elk, Tiger, Wolf, Bear totems.

    Storm Herald Barbarians can choose Desert, Sea, and Artic.

    These act like a subclass within a subclass.

    The Warlock's two seperate subclasses are different as they are mechanically seperate instead of one inside the other.

    He's asking about sub-classes that have multiple options. Totem Warrior, for example, has 3 additional choices within the subclass. A Berserker is a Berserker, but a Wolf Totem Warrior is different than a Bear Totem Warrior, even though they have the same sub-class.

    Personally, I like having variety of options, but understand that some prefer simpler choices (i.e. Battlemaster vs. Champion).

    I can kind of see where you're going with the Storm Herald Barbarian, even though I've never heard of it before. It sounds a lot like the Dragon Sorcerer.

    The Totem Barbarian doesn't work like that, though. At least as I recall it, they can choose a different totem whenever they gain a new ability, so choosing Bear for their first aspect ability doesn't prevent them from taking Wolf or Eagle for the following abilities.

    I like them as part of the overall system, glad that all the classes don't follow the same route though.

    "Yes" and "No" are too general. I like some sub-classes.
