D&D Classes FAQ
Here’s some frequently asked questions about D&D classes.
What DND classes are good for beginners?
This is a tricky question. On the one hand, Dungeons and Dragons is all about having fun. So, technically, the best D&D class for a beginner is the one they want to play. With a dozen main classes in D&D 5e and who knows what around the corner with D&D sixth edition!
In all seriousness, beginners might want to pick one of the more straight-forward classes like a fighter, cleric, or maybe a rogue. The latter has to be played right to survive at early levels, though, so it might not be a great choice for those who are new to D&D and RPG.
What is the most powerful D&D class?
Another great question…that’s entirely subjective. Yeah, yeah, this guy or that gal has put together scientific facts, blah, blah, blah. You really need more info to answer this question! For instance, are we talking low-level characters, mid-level characters, or high-level characters?
The answer makes a difference in what I personally would call the most powerful D&D class. With all that said, when it comes to D&D 5e classes, I’m partial to Warlock and Rogue. (Long live Gord the Rogue!) Depending on the player, any of the classes can really excel at the game.
How many classes can you be in D&D 5e?
In the basic rules (not including Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything), there’s twelve basic classes, including…
What is the easiest class in D&D?

Can I have 2 classes in D&D?
Not at the same time! You can multiclass from one class to another class (if you meet the requirements), but you can’t advance in two separate classes at the same time in D&D fifth edition. This is a common confusion with many new players, so don’t feel bad about asking the question. It’s the way to learn – and earn xp!
