30 Days of Dark Sun 6: What's your favorite class?

Post by Big Mac » Tue Oct 11, 2016 9:12 pm

It's the Dark Sun 25th Anniversary and The Burnt World of Athas (aka Athas.org) is celbrating with "30 Days of Dark Sun".

Here is what Athas.org is doing for Day 6: 30 Days of Dark Sun 6: What's your favorite class?.

Here are the player character classes mentioned on Dark Sun Wiki:
  • 2nd Edition Dark Sun
    • Bard (Athasian Minstrel)
    • Brute (Barbarian)
    • Cleric
    • Druid
    • Fighter
    • Gladiator
    • Psionicist
    • Psychic Warrior
    • Rogue
    • Templar
    • Wizard
    • Wilder
  • 4th Edition Dark Sun
    • Ardent
    • Battlemind
    • Psion
    • Monk
    • Fighter
    • Rogue
    • Ranger
    • Warlord
    • Warden
    • Seeker
    • Druid
    • Shaman
    • Sorcerer
    • Warlock
    • Wizard
Raddu liked the Psionicist and Robert Scwalb, designer for 4th edition Dark Sun, liked the Gladiator. What classes have you played in Dark Sun and which did you like most?

The Templar is a class with deep Dark Sun roots. It has my vote.

The AD&D classes are incorrect. There are no "brutes" or "psychic warriors" or "wilders". I suspect the list is from the unofficial 3e version.

Here is the correct list by class group (from the revised boxed set; the original boxed set has some differences):
  • Priests: Cleric, Druid, Templar
  • Warriors: Fighter, Gladiator, Ranger
  • Wizards: Preserver, Defiler
  • Rogues: Bard, Thief, Trader
  • Psionicist: Psionicist
Personally, I like the Bard (which is actually a non-magical assassin).

Well, Dark Sun 4e used all the core races (sans Divine Power ones), but you have themes, that gave classes a new, Dark Sun-esque spin. I like the Gladiator theme, because it gave you a really good Paragon Path.
