Wizards is releasing the last D&D Next playtest packet of 2012 today as a ‘holiday gift’ (very politically correct) to all of us out here awaiting the newest iteration of the venerable RPG. In the announcement post in Legends & Lore Mike Mearls also does a lot of talking about prestige classes in DnD Next and how they will work. Keep your eyes peeled for the email announcing the release of the new playtest materials and if you haven’t signed up go ahead and do so now.
You can also read all about the development team’s ideas on prestige classes in the source link below. Enjoy!
