Top 5 Ranked Most Versatile Classes in D&D 5e

Top 5 Ranked Most Versatile Classes in D&D 5e

What is the most versatile class in D&D? We asked ourselves this question. As there are many subclasses builds in D&D5e, we decided to look at the classes from a high level to determine which class was most versatile in the game. For this, we needed to define some criteria on what it means to be versatile in Dungeons & Dragons. We opted for 5 key categories: Damage, Defense, Battlefield Control, Movement, Healing ability.

Join us live at 7pm EST 6-13-21 as we share and debate which classes we believe are most versatile in Dungeons and Dragons 5e.

Alistin Glitterpot, Male Gnome

Description: He is armored to the teeth in gleaming platemail with gilded edges. A flowing blue cape and mantle trimmed with soft black waves gently in the breeze. He is physically well-built. He has shaved his head bald. He tends to wear goggles to shield his eyes.

Personality: He dislikes all the random violence that takes place in the kingdom. He is ready at a moment's notice to give into his darker urges when necessary. He is a real pyromaniac and does not care who the fire hurts. He often ends up burning people alive in the fires he starts.

History: He was born to a wealthy landowner in a frontier town, living a normal and happy childhood. He became part of the deadliest team of mercenaries in recent memory after his small town was destroyed due the actions of some careless adventurers (or monsters). A botched job caused the group to be disbanded. Being a Carpenter kept his interest for a while, but then he became depressed and bored. So he turned to a secret life of crime and adventure, taking increasingly more risks and challenges.

Motivation: He is greedy and seeks revenge on those who destroyed his home.
