D&D 4e Characters and Races

There's some debate about this, but I'm going to list all of the classes and races that are listed in the official Wizards of the Coast character builder.

 

Please keep in mind, you should always run it by your DM before playing a class or race that isn't in the Player Handbook. Your DM may not be comfortable with you playing a monster race, a race that wouldn't be found in your location, or a real exotic class (like Vampire. Seriously though, don't play as a vampire).

My friend played a were-tiger/vampire in 5e.

I was just sitting there thinking, WHY?

I like to keep it simple so I usually go with a bard or thief, usually halfling or human.

Also in 5e the special classes and races are OP.
