For the first time, after waiting what quite literally felt like ages, I’m going to have my first experience of Dungeons & Dragons. Not the kind that’s wedged into an RPG on the computer, but real-life, rolling dice, roleplaying.
Thing is, I have no bloody idea what class I want to play.
A friend in the office has put together a D&D 5th Edition group, and it’s grown pretty large. People are staking out their claim on what classes to play, and so far it’s looking like Barbarians and Bards are the most popular.
But that’s OK, because those two classes don’t interest me. I’m more interested in the prospect of a character that can be a little impish, something with more of a chaotic bent. I think that probably rules Paladins and Druids out, although I don’t know if I want to go full Rogue about it.
What’s on the table seems to be Warlock, Cleric, Fighter, Monk, Rogue, Sorcerer and Wizard. My gut says to lean away from the magic users and go towards something that would be a bit more useful in an urban setting, but I’m not entirely sure. I’ve never played D&D, after all.
What do you think? And what D&D classes do you like to play?
