    but still there's no 5e table formatting that's already been put in place to copy/paste? Ugh. Maybe I'll have to get around to doing it. Homebrewing custom classes is just too troublesome without it.

    Treantmonk has made a guide for 5e Wizards that you can add to the Class Guides list

    Part 1: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...JP0oH7HE_v67QY
    Part 2: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...ag8uBJndE5saro
    Please tell me the answer, is fate unchangeable?

    I commend you for making this thread, since guides are useful for keeping your build focused on its goals and not getting stuck in things that don't help you do what you are trying to.

    Thanks go to several individuals who have helped in this thread and its progenitor by suggesting threads to add to the list. They include (but may not be limited to), GWJ_DanyBoy, T.G. Oskar, Zoltar, Thomar_of_Uointer, neovenator250, Xetheral, Greylind, Odigity, Rfkannen, Hymer, Rezby, Ghost Nappa, Krymoar, and Kryx

    a similar thread by HeirRaktus on the community.wizards.com website was used to locate additional content. Credit goes to odigity for suggesting it

    This thread is the unofficial successor to "The META THREAD of useful things!", created by Corinath here Corinath then essentially disappeared. Rather than letting it die, this version was posted to keep the index growing


    Enjoy the thread, I hope others get good use out of it.

    By all means, please let me know if I have missed something or if there is new content out there. I'll be keeping an eye out, but of course I can't spot everything.
    This is so helpful, thank you!

    Great post guys, it will help me to build a proper character since I'm new with this system; unfortunately, WotC did it again.

    Remember when they decided to take down all their 3.5 post from their forums? Well, apparently they decided to take ALL their post now from their forums. Which means that many of the Guides of this post are now lost.

    I have click some of the links here and this is what I get:

    Quote from WotC:


    Thank you for your interest in the Wizards Forums.

    Social media has changed significantly over the last ten years, and discussions about games aren't exclusive to company-hosted forums. The majority of community conversation takes place on third-party websites (such as Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and many other fantastic community-run websites), and it is up to us to evolve alongside our players. All information posted to the Community Forums as of November 5 has been deleted.

    If you get some time for clean-up, delete all the threads linking back to the now-defunct WotC forums (what WERE they thinking????).

    Could one of the moderators update the posts that link to the Wizards of the Coast forums? Half of them don't work anymore. They were deleted, so I presume it's senseless having guides pointing at posts not there anymore.

    Perhaps, rather than delete the text of the links, you could just cross them out, so people can look to see if their favorite guides have been posted elsewhere, and you could update the link.

    All right, done weeding. Unfortunately, the post is now looking somewhat anemic. Of particular concern, we've lost all of our fighter and sorcerer class guides, and several other classes are down to just one. Several other useful resources have been lost as well.

    The text from defunct links have been moved to a 'graveyard' section. If people happen to know of locations where the resources in question have been re-posted, I would be glad to hear it.

    I just made a lot of changes, and will be surprised if no mistakes were made in the process, so please bring any to my attention.
