It's no secret that druids, paladins, rangers, and warlocks are incredibly popular character choices for players looking to get their D&D on. So, this Essentials package is a welcome addition to the weapons at a player's disposal. For beginners, this is a great way to get the build of a new character that you want, while experienced players can plunder a range of new powers, class features, paragon paths, and epic destinies for their own existing 4th Edition characters. The book, weighing in at a tasty 368 pages, also brings you expanded information and racial traits for some of the game's most popular races. Want to know more about dragonborn or drow? Half-elves or half-orcs? Maybe your interest lies in the Tieflings, a race whose human ancestors increased their power after a Faustian pact with devils. It's all here.
