Notes

  • Character classes appearing in this list are of various types:
    • Base class: The default type of character class, also called a standard class or core class. Base classes typically take characters from level 1 to 20 and have no special prerequisites. These include the classes of the Player's Handbook, as well as new classes introduced in later products.
    • Variant class: A set of rules which modifies an existing character class, or defines a different version of a base class. The line between a variant rule and an entirely new class is sometimes vague.
    • Generic class: A concept introduced in Unearthed Arcana (3e) (2004), which reduces the core character classes to three generic concepts.
    • Paragon class: A short, usually three-level class designed to empower characters of a certain race. Reminiscent of older editions' "race as class".
    • NPC class: A weaker type of character class intended for non-player characters such as commoners and noblemen, rather than adventurers.
    • Monster class: A concept introduced in Savage Species (2003), where a monster can be played from level 1 in a weaker form, which gradually becomes more powerful with each level until its abilities are equal to that of the full creature. Some templates received similar rules.
    • Transition class: A form of monster class which transforms a specific creature into a more powerful creature, such as a tiefling into a half-fiend. Only appeared in one web article.
    • Epic progression: Rules for playing class beyond 20th level. First appeared in this form in the Epic Level Handbook (2002), and later in the Dungeon Master's Guide (3.5) (2003) and some web content.
  • Prestige classes are listed separately; see List of Dungeons & Dragons 3rd edition prestige classes.
  • This list was constructed with help from the Character Class Index at the official Wizards of the Coast website, and the DragonDex Index of Articles.
  • The overwhelming majority of base classes and variants are for D&D 3.5, rather than 3.0.
    • Most 3.0-era character customization was instead done within the d20 framework of feats and prestige classes. D&D 3.0 products introducing new base classes included Oriental Adventures (3e) (2001), which featured east Asian themed classes, and Ghostwalk (2003), which featured two classes for playing ghosts as player characters.
    • Following the release of Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 in 2003, new base classes appeared in sourcebooks. At the same time, variants of existing classes began to appear in Dragon Magazine. Unearthed Arcana (3e) (2004) introduced significant variants which modified existing character classes in various ways. Later variants printed in Dragon Magazine took the form of Unearthed Arcana style individual variant abilities, rather than entire level 1 to 20 character classes as had been printed before.
  • The number of classes appearing throughout D&D third edition was substantial, with at over 320 uniquely named classes or variants, of which at least 64 are base classes or NPC classes. However, these are outnumbered considerably by prestige classes, of which there are at least one thousand.
    • In comparison, D&D 4th edition numbered only 77 core classes, based on a count of the D&D Compendium before its closure, of which 31 are hybrid entries for multiclassing purposes, and 46 are normal classes.
  • Notably missing from the Savage Progressions monster template class series are the celestial and half-celestial templates. This is because the series' author, Sean K. Reynolds, previously published progressions for these in the third-party sourcebook Anger of Angels, p.49.
    • The only other templates from the 3.5 Monster Manual which do not appear in this list are the skeleton and zombie, which are unsuitable as player characters, as both lack an Intelligence score in D&D 3.5 and have no valid level adjustment. As a result, no monster class for these exists.
  • Note that for reasons of copyright, game rules for these character classes do not appear in this wiki.
