When it comes to Dungeons
and Dragons, the first couple levels can seem a bit underwhelming. After all, you have the survivability rate of
a morbidly obese chicken at a KFC. But
something incredible happens at third level: most classes gain their sub-class
Up until this point, you’ve
had a few identifying characteristics, but this, my friend, is where those
unique qualities that make your character truly special begin to emerge. It’s here the flavor of abilities start to
shape your play style that will follow you through the rest of the game.
Some of the choices on
this list are some true classics, while others are some sleeper hits you may
wish to revisit. I know not all classes
are featured on this list, so be sure to leave a comment on your own
favorites. With that said, let’s begin.
10. Barbarian - Path Of The Totem Warrior
The barbarian’s rage is a
staple of their power which generally implies giving into the id, completely
surrendering to impulse. The Totem
Warrior barbarian, however, offers something a little different.
Harnessing their rage and
channeling it into the energies represented by the beasts of nature, the totem
barbarian offers a host of impressive options.
A bear totem might grant you resistance to virtually any damage, while
an eagle’s aspect can let you see as far as one mile out.
The best feature is that
you’re not beholden to one animal or another.
If you want to mix tiger and wolf totems, you can. Bear and…also bear? Sure, you can do that too. This path grants the flexibility and power to
enable the player to make their barbarian into an absolute beast.
