Thanks [MENTION=1]Morrus[/MENTION] and [MENTION=6780961]Yunru[/MENTION] for getting the posting problem sorted out, now I can take the barbarian guide off my bookmarks.

Made and added a new Ranger guide. Still in the process of coloring everything, but the info is there. And a Google Docs version is linked in the opening post that does have everything colored while you wait for me to color the forum thread.

There are so many outdated guides there, most of the guides here only use Players Handbook and nothing else.

Are there some guides from around the last years somewhere?

I believe the idea was to have all of the guides linked here so I doubt you will find any elsewhere on this site.

Many are outdated, but only monk has no up to date guide available. For some reason no one wants to make one...

I'm working on it! Kinda. Not really.
Real life, y'know?

That said, 5e's outdate isn't nearly the problem that older edition's had. Everything's still usable, you just have to use your own judgement for new races/subclasses.
...
Probably why everyone keeps putting it on the backburner.

Well, in my opinion, the new books, especially Xanathars Guide, did a really great job in make the subclasses even more diverse.

Some examples: Ancestral Guardians are super different from the Berserker Barbarians and also the other, Hexblade Warlocks are also very different from normal ones.

That was the reason. The points for the old ones are still valid, altough some new spells are a game changer for some classes - where a fighting character very hardly thinks about using green blade flame, sword burst and so on. So also for them, best practises might have changed.
