thinking, that's all

Don't tell me what to do!

Let’s start a petition to make it illegal to kill black people.

Oh.

Wait.

How to build your favorite D&D 4E classes with D&D 5E multiclassing

A new edition of Dungeons & Dragons means we’re back down to a more limited set of options once again, but that doesn’t mean you can’t play the classes you’ve come to love. 5E’s flexible multiclassing system gives you a lot of room to emulate the feel, if not the full on signature abilities of some 4E classes.

Warlord - The Battle Master Fighter archetype has many of the Warlord’s tools now. Add levels of the College of Valor Bard to your liking if you want healing ability that matches the Warlord’s flavor.

Avenger - Oath of Vengeance Paladin has the Avenger’s mechanics. Consider a splash of Monk for Unarmored Defense, or add even more Monk levels for the Way of Shadow’s maneuverability.

Invoker - Believe it or not, Cleric (Knowledge, Light, or Tempest Domains) with a splash of Fiend Pact Warlock fits the flavor best, particularly for the Wrathful Invoker’s punishment themed powers.

Shaman - The Shaman is a bit of a stretch. Circle of the Land Druid or Nature Domain Cleric have your healing ability, but the Beast Master Ranger has your pet. Prepare to go heavy on the Ranger side if you don’t want to deal with a lot of dead animal companions.

Warden - Totem Warrior Barbarian offers a solid foundation for a Primal-themed frontline fighter. Season with Oath of the Ancients Paladin or Hunter Ranger to taste. Serve raging.

Ardent - It just won’t feel right until we have Psionics rules. Consider reflavoring the College of Valor Bard. A splash of Great Old One Warlock might get you the psionic flavor you desire.

Battlemind - Another rough effort without psionics rules. You can emulate a Battlemind with a mix of Champion or Battle Master Fighter as the core. Way of the Open Hand Monk, or Transmuter Wizard add effects to emulate the Battlemind’s bodily perfection.

Psion - One more Psionic challenge. This is basically the Wizard with a focus on Enchantment, Illusion, and Divination if you’re creating a Telepathic Psion (though, oddly, actual Telepathy is in Evocation). For the Telekinetic Psion, Abjuration, Evocation, and Transmutation have your go-to effects.

Runepriest - The War Domain Cleric will probably feel like the best fit. Consider adding Oath of Devotion Paladin for more melee capability.

Seeker - Hunter Ranger has the ranged combat and Primal spellcasting core of the Seeker. Circle of the Land Druid, Nature Domain Cleric, or even Archfey Pact Warlock can amp up the magical nature if you desire.

Swordmage - Congratulations! You’re an Eldritch Knight Fighter now!

Artificer - No really clean parallels here. College of Valor Bard with a bit of Transmuter or Conjurer Wizard comes close, but if magitech pets are part of your identity, expect to be disappointed.

Assassin - Assassin Rogue mixed with Way of Shadow Monk ought to feel like a solid Shadow powered Assassin.

None of these solutions are perfect, but if you’re willing to tinker and meet the system halfway, you can still transfer most obscure characters forward to the new edition.

Oddly enough, the spirit totem barbarian has a lot of the same flavor (bear, eagle, wolf spirit) as the shaman if they don’t mind completely switching party roles.

And the Great Old One pact Warlock is a decent alternative to a telepathic Psion. For now.

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

I’m not saying it was spell jammers, but it was spell jammers

I hope they make an official spelljammer thing for 5e.
