    Default the complete, up-to-date 5e Subclass Directory

    Looking around online, I've noticed a glaring lack of one particular resource for both DMs and players: a complete list of all official subclasses available. There's a lot of indexes out there, but they tend to be chock-full of homebrew stuff and it can be hard to figure out what's what. With Unearthed Arcana, it can be hard to know what all your options are and I thought it would be nice to have a single place people could go to find these things.

    If I've missed anything, please feel free to point it out!

    Wizard: War Mage.

    Also, I think maybe it would be good to link to original and updated versions of subclasses, such as with College of Blades and Arcane Archer.

    Storm Soul has also been published in the SCAG, so it is no longer relegated to UA.

    You might want to link to the spell-less Ranger variant, even though it isn't technically a subclass.

    Changes made -- thank you all! When possible, I should definitely link the most up-to-date version.

    This leads to an issue with things like Storm Soul that moved from UA to published books. For now, I intend to leave the UA link up, but point to the book where a revised and up-to-date version can be found. I can change this policy and remove the UA links if moderation would prefer.

    Personally, I like having every version of the subclass listed, not just the most up-to-date ones. For comparison's sake.

    Agreed. If for nothing else, it's sometimes fun to see how they changed over time.

    If you're going to call it complete, and you're going to include UA stuff, then for the sake of completeness you should probably link all versions of UA stuff that have been amended.
    Favored Soul has undergone a couple of different iterations, Kensai has two versions, etc.
    If you quote me and ask me questions,
    and I continue to not respond,
    it's probably because I have
    you on my Ignore list.

    No. Because that's not how things work here.
    You can request that Mark Hall add it to the "5e Notable Threads" thread that is stickied, if you like.
    Or better yet, ask the owner of "Guides, Tables, and other useful tools for 5E D&D" that is included in that thread. That will probably happen faster, and doesn't require Mod intervention.

    Revised Ranger is not a subclass. It's a revision of the base class.

    New UA dropped, so 3 of those will have secondary (main? Not sure how you're treating Revised subclasses) links and the Celestial patron for Warlocks is technically new (but more a reskin of the Undying Light)

    And subclasses are actually called Archetypes.

    The Revised Ranger is important to include here, along with the Artificer and Mystic. I really apprecicate the work the OP has done, but if his goal isn't to catalog all class content then I'd rather use another thread that will.

    Eh. Only fighters and rogues have archetypes (martial and roguish, respectively); if you start correcting, at least do it right ;)

    Subclass is more appropriate as a general term.

    TIL the name is not archetype. Now I understand why Mearls doesn't call them that.

    Thanks for pointing it out!


    But seriously, all class options should be included. :)

    You have the Undying patron (SCAG), but you missed the similarly named Undying Light. I haven't checked if they are different mechanically, but considering the vastly different fluff, I assume they are.

    I intend to include all class options. Anything missing is unintentional. There's so much content out there, and it's awesome that you guys are helping out.

    I may need to rethink formatting to get everything in there -- maybe a separate subheading for class revisions. I need to pop off to work soon but I'll try to get that fixed this evening.

    I was planning to leave older revisions off, but I'm getting a vibe that people disagree, so I'll put 'em up too.
