Top 10 D&D Best Class Combinations 5e (Best D&D Multiclass)

D&D Best Class Combinations
Ever tried a Fighter Warlock?

What are the best D&D Multiclasses?

In the D&D5e there are advanced rules in the Player’s Handbook concerning the topic of multiclassing. These rules allow for a player to combine multiple classes together to make characters that truly suit exactly what the player is going for. Want a paladin that can be stealthy? Give him a few levels of Rogue. Want your ranger to cast fireball? You’re a wizard Harry!

This is a list of the best class combinations in the game. Maybe not the most powerful, but the best from a balance, storytelling, AND power standpoint. This list is not in any particular order, you can decide which is the best and worst among them yourself.

Enjoy!

10. Spell Sword (Fighter-Wizard)

Do you enjoy playing Eldritch Knights because of their ability to have both mastery over martial talents but the arcane arts as well? Then this multiclass is better, being much more efficient than your Eldritch Knight’s alter ego.

Summary:

  • Many different options in and out of combat
  • Heavily armored battle mage
  • Complex actions and heavy synergy

How to play effectively:

  • Use area-of-effect spells when melee combat is becoming ineffective (or when dashing or ranged combat is the alternative)
  • If paired with the Battlemaster, micromanagement of abilities is essential and allows for completely new, unseen synergies
  • Fighter at level 1 gives high hit points and proficiencies
  • Wizard at level 2 allows specialization of your school of magic (I prefer evocation personally)
  • Get the War Caster feat ASAP, as it is almost necessary. If that means being variant human so be it, if it means putting several levels into either fighter of wizard early on that is the price to be paid for greatness

Roleplaying hooks:

  • Trained in an ancient order of Spell Swords
  • Royal cadre of elite knights, not sanctioned by the holy authority (thus the reason they aren’t paladins)
  • A lost doctrine of warrior techniques that has only recently been found

It’s impossible to take warcaster and fighter at level 1, since the prerequisite for that feat is the ability to cast a spell.
