"Since the fighter is easily the most popular class in the game, we decided to offer two takes on it rather than a fifth character class."

See, it's things like this, that make me worry heavily about how much the designers of D&D really know their game and audience. I'm not saying that fighters are rare. But I'm pretty sure they're far and away from being the most popular class in the game, to say nothing about it being easy to determine so.

In any event, looks like the starter box adventure will have a fair bit of material in it. Wonder how we'll pace that with Shattered Star.

By "most popular class", they likely mean "default class everyone goes with because a fighter always works".

Even if we go by the definition 'most used' I'd have to nominate Cleric for that. For the role of 'hit it with a stick' You have such options as Fighter, barbarian, paladin, an even ranger. But default healing, which most parties want, are going to want a cleric. I dunno. Just seems a very odd claim to me.

I'm thinking more of people who don't know the system, and just go 'FIGH TOR' because it's easy to deal with. "I hit things."
