Class Name?[edit]

Hi. I wanted to just make a request. The "Warden" as a class in the previous version of D&D is a primal class and has to do with nature. Your version of "The Warden" is great but thematically it has the making of a Fighter 2.0. Maybe a more suitable name should adjust to it to avoid confusion.

I found some that you can use:

  • Avenging Slayer
  • Bladestorm
  • Duelist
  • Marauder
  • Doomguard
  • Dreadnought
  • Defender
  • Myrmidon
  • Iron Vanguard
  • Knight
  • Protector
  • Mythic Slayer
  • Pit Fighter
  • Ravager
  • Battlerager
  • Scale-Breaker
  • Shield Adept
  • Siegebreaker
  • Warfield
  • Stalwart Knight
  • Wrathbearer
  • Eternal Defender
  • Invincible vanguard
  • Legendary General
  • Warlord
  • Sovereign
  • Warmaster

Balance Input[edit]

I almost undid this edit because I thought it were too strong but reconsidered since it is 6th level. I am curious how others feel about this edits power spike. ~ BigShotFancyMan 08:13, 22 April 2019 (MDT)

I feel the edit doesn't increase the power level of the feature too much in most circumstances, but it can be a huge boon if fighting against enemies that do deal all those damage types. I am on the side of reverting it since the feature in question is already stronger than the other subclasses' 6th level feature.--Blobby383b (talk) 17:18, 21 August 2019 (MDT)
I am on the fence and I think you have the right idea to revert the edit.   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   21:31, 3 September 2019 (MDT)

Resilicnce Trait[edit]

I think the resilience trait should be buffed, because no matter what level you're at, it is tiny compared to the damage you'll be taking.


This class seems like another complete class to me. I don't see any crazy buffs this gets or features that scream you can't play D&D without this class. I am much more a fan of the Assualt Warden since I find its features more interesting. Spell casting should help this class with any minor short comings it has as well. I would definitely like to hear about playtesting with this (and the arcane archer).   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   07:42, 6 September 2019 (MDT)

Huh, I prefer the other two subclasses for being a bit more unique and interesting to create features for. Either way though, both this class and the arcane archer are feature complete and have been for some time, yet I haven't managed to playtest them all this time. Overall they should be ok, but I am a bit worried about the warden due to it having access to the sorcerer spell list(paladin's not so much). If it does ends of being an issue, a custom spell list can still be created pretty easily though without really affecting the core class.--Blobby383b (talk) 11:46, 6 September 2019 (MDT)
I have an itch for NPC creation so I'll try to remember this class when I start creating them, and hopefully I can mock play some things.   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   13:03, 6 September 2019 (MDT)
