List of prestige classes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of prestige classes in the 3rd edition of the Dungeons and Dragons role-playing game. Prestige classes were introduced in third edition as a further means of individualizing a character.[1] This list includes content for both the original 3rd edition and the 3.5 revision.

Nearly every official supplement source book and most issues of Dragon magazine introduced new prestige classes. This list does not include prestige classes from third-party material offered under the d20 System or the Open Game License. It also does not include prestige classes in video games based on Dungeons & Dragons, such as the Neverwinter Nights series.

Some prestige classes, such as the Bladesinger, Ur-Priest, and the Purple Dragon Knight, are printed in multiple sources. Sometimes there are slight revisions between these reprints, while others are exact duplications. As a result, there are fewer total prestige classes than the sum of those appearing in each source.

Dungeon Master's Guide[edit]

The prestige classes in the Dungeon Master's Guide were the first (and, to date, the only) prestige classes considered part of the core rules for the game. The 3rd edition Dungeon Master's Guide contained six original prestige classes; the 3.5 revision included these six, and added ten more.

Class Description Statistics
Arcane Archer Arcane archers mix archery with magical ability; they may enchant arrows and send spells as effects through them. They must be either an elf or a half-elf. OGL stats
Image
Assassin Assassins are killers and spies, generally for money. They must be of evil alignment and kill a victim as an initiation rite to join. They focus on stealth, sneak attacks, and safe (for them) poison usage. They also have a limited degree of magical talent focused on intrusion and stealth; it is cast normally like a Wizard in 3rd edition and spontaneous like a Sorcerer in 3.5. OGL stats
Image
Blackguard Blackguards are dedicated champions of evil; mechanically, they are similar to reverse Paladins in many ways. Some older versions of the game included "Anti-Paladins," which are similar. Blackguards may be of any evil alignment; fallen Paladin Blackguards gain additional abilities. OGL stats
Image
Dwarven Defender Dwarven Defenders are dwarf warriors who gain great defensive ability; they possess a higher Armor Class and gain damage reduction. Dwarven Defenders can also gain bonuses from a Defensive stance ability if they stay rooted to one spot. They must be of a Lawful alignment. OGL stats
Image
Loremaster Loremasters are scholars who acquire knowledge and occluded secrets. They must possess some skill in divination spells and detailed mastery of at least two Knowledge skills. OGL stats
Image
Shadowdancer Shadowdancers are able to use the cloak of shadows for a variety of powerful effects, such as hiding in plain sight or teleporting a short range through shadows. OGL stats
Image
Added in 3.5 revision
Arcane Trickster Arcane Tricksters are rogues who combine larceny with magical talent. They may attempt skills such as picking locks or sleight of hand from a distance, and can force sneak attacks even on prepared targets. Arcane Tricksters cannot be lawful. OGL stats
Image
Archmage Archmages are powerful wizards or sorcerers who gain a variety of special abilities in exchange for spell slots. OGL stats
Image
Dragon Disciple Dragon Disciples are those with some draconic heritage who seek to transform into half-dragons. They must have some inherent spellcasting ability to attempt this. OGL stats
Image
Duelist Duelists are nimble warriors who focus on wits and finesse. They gain a bonus based on intelligence to their armor class when not wearing armor and may strike their opponents with great precision with light weapons. OGL stats
Eldritch Knight Eldritch Knights learn both martial and arcane arts. They must possess both skill with all weapons and significant arcane casting ability, and go on to improve both in training as an Eldritch Knight. OGL stats
Image
Hierophant Hierophants are already-powerful clerics or druids who seek a different form of training. The class does not enhance their spellcasting ability any, but hierophants gain powerful special abilities of their choice from their deity instead. OGL stats
Image
Horizon Walker Horizon Walkers are explorer-warriors. They gain knowledge of various terrains with experience, and eventually learn even the terrain of the outer planes. OGL stats
Image
Mystic Theurge Mystic Theurges are students of both divine and arcane magic. Mechanically, they are generally cleric / wizards who advance their spellcasting in both classes. OGL stats
Image
Red Wizard Red Wizards are members of the ruling hierarchy of Thay in the Forgotten Realms setting. They are extremely specialized wizards; they forsake access to even more schools of magic in order to increase their mastery in their specialized school. (see below)
Thaumaturgist Thaumaturgists are generally former clerics who specialize in summoning allies from the planes. OGL stats
Image

The Red Wizard prestige class was adapted from Forgotten Realms campaign-specific material. Because of its origins in Forgotten Realms, the Red Wizard is the only prestige class to appear in the Dungeon Master's Guide but not in the System Reference Document (SRD).
