Notes[]

  • The default sorting is the article ID as it appeared in the D&D Compendium. This is the order in which it was originally added to the Compendium, and therefore approximately the order in which the class was released.
  • The links to articles on each character class refer to the class in general, rather than just the D&D 4th edition incarnation of that character class.
  • Links to the original Compendium articles are not provided, as that service shut down at the end of 2019.
