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

3. Pugilist (Barbarian-Monk)

Boxers, tavern brawlers, wrestlers, all of them fall into this line of thought. This class is for those who want to deal a lot of damage over the course of several repeated hits. Think of it as a combo class.


  • High damage
  • Multiple attacks in a turn
  • No weapons or armor needed

How to use effectively:

  • Take your first 2 levels in Barbarian, then become a monk after
  • Strength should be your highest stat, then Dexterity, CON, then WIS
  • Get the Tavern Brawler feat as soon as possible
  • Important feats in order: Grappler (Optional), Tough, Savage Attacker

Roleplaying Hooks:

  • You are traveling brawler that wishes to seek your fortune adventuring rather than carousing pubs
  • You are a professional boxer/ wrestler/ pit fighter who has decided to use your skill for the greater good

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