The hero you deserve
Ok, so the Basic rules have been out a week, and we've been busy tearing them apart.

Bored now!

Time to get back on the hype train, and start thinking about what we want to see in the PH(B).

Personally, I'm looking forward to the bard. I love the idea of bards as a full caster, and I'm hoping to see a hybrid of a great buffer and a lot of the 3.5 beguiler.

Sorcerer, mostly because I want to see how the spell points mechanic works (or doesn't work).

Hand of Evil

should have been a multi-choice poll - went with warlock, think that will be a good base class for a Witcher type of career.

It will be interesting to see how many builds come out of the classes

Can't wait to see the final form of the Paladin. Excited to see if the Arcane Archer feat makes it into the PHB as well.


I signed on for the playtest from the start and played a couple times with the original rules, but then didn't really look at anything until I started reading the final PT rules late last year. The first class was the barbarian and it made my eyes pop, and kinda stole the thunder from the other classes once I got around to them. So the barbarian has kinda stuck with me as cool and I'm interested in seeing if they kept them pretty much the same or not.

I've a three-way tie: Cleric, Bard, Paladin. I'm really hoping that something similar to the Arcanist sub-class for the Cleric appears (perhaps the Knowledge domain?), that the Blackguard makes a reappearance, and that the Bard has a martial sub-class not unlike 13th Age's Bard or 4e's Warlord. I voted for Bard.


Sorcerer, but Druid is a close second. Those are my favourite classes, so I'll be interested in seeing how they've developed.

But in general, what I'm really curious about is the Artificer. Eberron remains my favourite campaign setting, and the 5e Artificer is going to be a challenge.


Certainly the bard. I really want to see how they design it as a complete healer class on par with both cleric and druid. Also, I'm curious about the hit dice of the monk. I'm totally expecting a d10 and would be disappointed otherwise.

I'm looking forward to all the appeared-in-a-prior-edition's PH1 classes - including the Assassin, Illusionist, and Warlord that somehow got omitted from your poll. ;P

(presumably they'll all at least be sub-classes)

Plus, psionics were in the 1e PH1, even if the psionicist or psion didn't exist yet, so a choice for that'd've been nice.

Whining aside, of the classes in the poll, Druid. The playtest Druid was evocative of the 1e Druid I enjoyed so much back in the day, so I'm anxious to see if they didn't screw that up in the final version.

Edit. As for class, I want to see the new Bard

To be fair, this list isn't based on speculation; it's been confirmed that the PHB will have the same 11 as the 3e PHB, plus Warlock.

I went with bard, though its pretty close with warlock.

A brand new, never before seen take on the D&D bard really has me interested. We've heard more about sorcerer, and we've even seen two warlocks in action on the livestreams. But with bard...we have the announcement article, a tiny a bit of follow up, and that's pretty much all we know.

The other thing I'm most personally invested in (to make my own personal iconic character) is how the eldritch knight subclass works.

And I would be delighted if they gave us a green knight subclass again. The flavor was downright awesome.

Really keen to see the new take on the Assassin. (so Rogue, I suppose)

Other than that, how the differences between Sorcerer/Warlock/Wizard are presented.
