I know we have the Combat-Focused category, but I think this is needed as well, especially with the huge amount of classes and PrCs in that group, it's hard to find ones that stem from ToB without really digging.-FREAKshow 22:09, 1 December 2008 (MST)

Agreed, it really is a distinct thing from simply "combat-focused". On that same note, I think we should probably have categories for manifesters (which I believe are currently categorized as spellcasters), meldshapers (although there are not currently many of them), and miscellaneous pseudo-spellcasters (invokers [a la warlock], shadowcasters, truenamers, infusers [a la artificer], etc.). --Daniel Draco 06:12, 2 December 2008 (MST)
Manifesters, maybe, but having the 'pseudo-spellcasters' is a good idea. This has already been discussed tho, the categories were as per WotC's. --Sabre070 06:49, 2 December 2008 (MST)
Well, imagine you're looking for something for your character in this site's homebrew. If you want your character to be a psion or something, you have to sift the relevant classes out of all of the ones lumped together as "spellcasters". Despite what WotC does in their categorization, it would make finding things a lot easier if we had more specific categories. That is, after all, the purpose of categories. I think we should, as a general rule of thumb, have a separate category for something if WotC has more than one base class that uses it. That means spellcasters (perhaps further subcategorized into arcane and divine), manifesters, martial adepts, meldshapers, and invokers (which can be a catch-all for any at-will magic users). All others can go into the category of "miscellaneous pseudo-spellcasters", or something with a less cumbersome name. --Daniel Draco 11:30, 12 December 2008 (MST)
I agree that WotC's class organizational struture does not make the most sense. If anyone wants to come up with a more all encompassing, well divided and less confusing system for class type organization I would love to discuss some ideas here. --Green Dragon 13:21, 28 May 2009 (MDT)
Maybe a series of categories and subcategories something like this?
Prestige Class Base Class (Pseudo-)Magic
Progression-Advancing Separate Progression Spellcaster Manifester Martial Adept Meldshaper
Arcane Divine
