This book builds on the array of classes and races presented in the first Player's Handbook, adding both old favorites and new, never-before-seen options to the game.

The book adds a new power source for 4th Edition D&D: classes using the new primal power source include the barbarian and the druid.

More Information Edit | History

Players Handbook 2 adds the following new items into the D&D 4th edition world:

Races:
Deva
Gnome

Classes:

Druid (Primal Controller)
Invoker (Divine Controller)
Shaman (Primal Leader)
Sorcerer (Arcane Striker)
Warden (Primal Defender)

Paragon paths for all of the above classes are included, as well as racial paragon paths for all the new races and all the races of the first Player's Handbook. Racial paragon paths are described as an 'exemplar of a race's defining characteristics'.
