    Survivor XGTE New Subclasses - SHADOW MAGIC WINS!

    h/t @OB1


    This thread is inspired by the prior threads on the core classes, the core races, the core alignments, feats, and the iconic D&D monsters. Also? The last one (AP paths) was short, so this will be LONG!

    IMPORTANT NOTE- DOWNVOTES ARE WORTH 3 IN THIS THREAD. BECAUSE IT'S REALLY LONG.

    REPEAT- DOWNVOTES ARE 3 IN THIS THREAD.

    Each subclass starts with 20 points and you vote for one subclass you like which gets 1 point and a subclass you dislike which loses 3 points. It is intentional that a negative vote is worth more than a positive vote- first, we don't want to be here all year. Second, because.

    Upvotes are in green, downvotes are in in red (unless you are on your phone, and are unable to). Copy and paste the previous posters vote and change the numbers. You may vote once per day.
    This is an honor system, and we are all honorable gamers; please do not abuse it. If this means you vote once at night one day, and once the next morning - that's fine, but don't vote again until the following day. This is also purely a popularity contest and you do not have to explain an upvote or downvote, but feel free to- explanations are where the fun is! When downvotes reach 0 the subclass is eliminated (FATALITY!). Finally, if a subclass has one or two votes left, then you have to make the choice to use all of your downvotes to eliminate it; there is no vote splitting. Also, to clarify- there are no "see votes." You cannot upvote and downvote the same AP.


    Three important points that you must read before voting-
    1. This is a pure popularity contest, and is meant to be fun. You can cast your votes for whatever reason you want. Spite, irrational love/hate, cool names, strategic voting, and so on is perfectly acceptable. You can vote based on the subclass's name, or its features, or whether you thought it was fun or not, or whatever- it's all good! This vote does not affect anything in real life, and no subclasses will be removed, changed or errated by Wizards of the Coast in the future because of this vote. You can comment for the reasons for your vote, or not- up to you! But this is for enjoyment only.

    HA! Who am I kidding? OF COURSE THIS LIST WILL BE USED TO JUSTIFY GETTING RID OF ALL PALADIN SUBCLASSES!

    2. This is a list of the new Xanathar Guide to Everything Subclasses; For a look at the list, BUY THE BOOK, or look at this thread- please see-

    http://www.enworld.org/forum/showthread.php?583833-Xanathar-s-Guide-to-Everything-What-subclasses-made-the-cut

    For complaints, please go to /dev/null

    That said, the list is the list- please do not alter it.

    3. Be kind to each other!

    Katana Just kidding! Katana doesn't need any subclasses or archetyes; Katana is too awesome for more abilities.

    DOWNVOTES ARE THREE. PLEASE COPY AND PASTE THIS.

    Hexblade is best blade. Kensei had potential but didn't reach it.

    Forge domain getting some love because the simple yet effective build if you fully spec into it. However it really shines as a single level multi class dip, especially for fighters due to the feature that allows yourself to have a +1 magic weapon to overcome resistance of creatures OR if you acquire a +1 magic weapon you can then increase AC/ help another martial buddy without a magic weapon.

    Arcane archer is getting down vote due to general feeling of it being unnecessary, would have preferred a remake of the monster hunter perhaps without superiority dice (I know there is the monster slayer, but that was a let down and I like my monster hunters to be underdogs who have to use smarts to kill their prey).
