Variant classes are slightly altered core classes, creating classes that are somewhat different than the standard druid, hunter, warlock, mage, etc. A variant class takes one of the existing base classes and alters it slightly — usually swapping one class feature for another, or performing some other minor alterations. These variant classes allow a larger range of customization and represent slightly different concepts. In a way, the healer and arcanist classes already present variant classes: they have different paths. The healer class, for instance, has four variants: the druid, priest, shaman and witch doctor. The arcanist class, has four variants: the inscriber, mage, necromancer and warlock.[1][2]

Variant classes are RPG classes.

Racial Iconic ClassesEdit

There are variant classes that are race-specific.

Ex-variantEdit

  • Ex-paladin - Not so much a true variant or class, but a penalized paladin (blocked from Light-given abilities).
  • Ex-barbarian - Not so much a true variant or class, but a penalized barbarian (loses certain wild abilities).

NotesEdit

Druid of the Claw, Druid of the Talon, and Druid of the Fang are alterations of the totemic druid.
