14 min    Views

Dungeons & Dragons Online offers a massive selection of classes, as is expected from a worthy DnD game! Loyal to the franchise’s roots, you have the ability to customize your character’s stats manually after choosing your class, or go with one of the class presets / paths offered.

Additionally, there are some Iconic classes, which are obviously paid, start at a higher level and with better equipment, and I would definitely suggest you stay away from as a new player!

Last but not least, pay heavy attention to the “Solo Ability” of each class / path, depending on if you will be playing the game mainly solo, or with a group!
