          Echo Knight is a rip off from Echo class from 3rd party Paizo.

            The Echo Knight reminds me of Hazel D'Ark from the Deathstalker Saga.

                I think the Gunslinger and bloodhunter are Dms guild exclusives sadly because of how publishing on Dms guild works everyone get a binder buy them on dms guild print them out , out them in that binder. done. Also the first draft of the cobolt soul monk is in the taldorei guide I think the updates will be available somewhere. It would be great if those three classes were in the book but I don't think the 'can' be.

                      If they only have the three subclasses I’ll be disappointed. New books hardly ever come out and only giving love to fighter and wizard would be pretty lame.

                        I highly doubt we'll get any previously released classes or subclasses, but if we did I'd expect only the ones from DM's Guild. The stuff released in the Tal'Dorei book might be an issue since it was published by Green Ronin rather than WotC, though I would absolutely love or if WotC would just go ahead and make the Tal'Dorei book official material, maybe through some business deal with GR.

                            I feel like echo knight could be an eldritch knight with dunamancy spells as choice instead of the regular ones.

                                            All this shit just sounds so ridiculous that it’s incredibly easy to tell it’s fan made content instead of the normal level of thought and intrigue of a WotC release. There’s nothing wrong with fan content but it is a little weird to listen to and how crazy it all sounds and makes me wonder if we needed a printed book of it. Looking at you 50 shades of gray twilight fan fiction.

                                              @trexdrew I literally said it's ok of you dont like it...that's not my issue. My point is that you have no defense for your point other than it sounds ridiculous in spite of the fact that this type of magic is well thought out and baked into the world itself.

                                              D Ren lol ok whatever you say. Any difference in opinion and criticism of CR is hate and automatic gatekeeping. God I hate fandoms sometimes 🤦🏼‍♂️

                                              @trexdrew I've watched it played, it's not crazy nor is it unbalanced nor is it mandatory material to adapt into your game. It's totally fine to not be into the concept. It's just sounds like more gatekeeping and "if the idea didnt come from me its bad".

                                              D Ren I’ve watched all the DDB videos yes. It still sounds like crazy unbalanced fanbrew

                                              It isnt though, have you watched the video where matt explains what it is? Have you watched any of cr? If not, the context for dunamancy is all there. It's really not that crazy either considering all the other wacky shit we can do in the game already.

                                            You keep bringing up his other stuff from Taldorei Guide and the stuff on the DMs guild....But he kinda can't publish that stuff. It is Green Ronin publishing not Wizards. I am sure there would be legal issues around that. On top of that he can't really put stuff from the dms guild it because it is right in the rules of DMs Guild that you can't publish that material anywhere else.

                                              Trust me, if we were getting other subclasses like Cobalt Soul or the Gunslinger, they would have added it to the description. Saying you might also get other subclasses that are clearly not announced creates unreal expectations, which may leave people disappointed with the book.

                                                Dmsguild owns the sub and classes he has put on there. It's part of the agreement everyone has to use, when putting any paid content on that website. So, they can't be published by WoTC. Matt Mercer explained that briefly in one of the D&D beyond videos.

                                                Yeah, they would have stated it because they do t hold back with describing the books.

                                                Gunslinger and Cobalt Soul monk won’t be in this and that’s kind of a shame considering

                                                            I really don't like it when new subclasses are released and multiple are for a single class. Likely would have been pretty easy to turn one of those wizard schools into a sorcerer bloodline instead. That could have been pretty interesting, especially if they added some new meta magic options as well.

Though with the emphasis of how the magic is learned, it probably goes against the lore. Which is most likely why wizards recieved the dunamancy subclasses instead of other types of spellcasters.

First, those would have been mentioned in the summary since they would be considered new to dnd cause right now they are just homebrew subclasses. Second i dont think wotc would throw so many different subclasses into an adventure book, also lastly people can forget about blood hunter since WotC is very hesitant to add entirely new classes to the game and have said so in the past.

Theres a 5 minute video that explains exactly what dunamancy is. Has little to do with time and more to do with parallel dimensions and potentiality as well as being able to tap into that.

                                                                      Summoning an echo is just pulling a shell of a potential version of yourself to aid you in combat. Then you have spells like mote of alacrity which just allows you to roll a skill check again and take the higher roll. Theres a spell that locks objects in space and a spell that acts more like a singularity.

                                                                      None of these things are so out there for dnd, relax.

And even those won't be about time travel but time manipulation (like for example, the Slow spell). Maaaaaaaaaaaaaybe there could be a 9th lvl spell dealing with time travel, but by that point you could also use Wish for time travel.
