I'm trying to make a class variant. Not a subclass or a new class, but a class that is technically new, but uses a few features and mechanics from pre-existing classes. Would I just upload this in the Homebrew Class section, or is there a different area for this?

To create a class variant using the same name as the original class, you just need to add ,Variant or ,2nd Variant or ect number Variant after the name of the class when creating it from 5e Classes. Examples include names such as General, Variant (5e Class) or Archer, 2nd Variant (5e Class) or Jester, 4th Variant (5e Class).
Also, if you are creating a class using a different name than the original, you don't need to add variant to the name as long as there isn't another preexisting class with that name.

Perfect answer. Thank you!

What if there is an incomplete class that has the same name as mine, but mine is complete? Should I still put the "Variant" after the name since this other one was technically made first?

Correct, regardless of completeness, pages created with the same name after the original should variant

The short answer is that it depends on how much content the class has, if it has 1-2 features and really nothing else to its name it is fine(as some classes are created with next to no content). If not, I would advise against replacing the existing content of a page.
