I thought it may be good to consolidate everything in one place to help weed out duplicate threads and ensure that people don't need to scour multiple posts to find every aspect of strategy. I intend to only have a single thread for each character/scenario, and will link to whichever one I arbitrarily deem the most useful. I will try to keep this post up to date, but if I'm missing anything please feel free to link it in the comments below. If you are looking for something not listed here, feel free to create the topic yourself (being conscientious of spoilers) and post a link below; I'll add it to the list!

Oh, and it should go without saying that even though the content of this post will be spoiler free, the linked posts will have spoilers for the topic at hand!

SPOILER WARNING: The image links have class names embedded in them; if you want to preserve the mystery of the class names, avoid looking at the image file path! (Mousing over them does NOT reveal the spoilers)

I was just thinking about having something like this earlier today. I'm trying to avoid spoilers, but by the time I unlock something, it's not easy to find any threads about what I just unlocked. Thanks for starting this!

Started up a thread on the "Spikey-headed Angry Guy" class. Not sure what the accepted nomenclature is for that class.

As far as I'm concerned, the accepted nomenclature is now Spikey Headed Angry Guy!

Thanks! I've added your second link to the list

As for the first one, my main goal with this list is to keep discussions focused and centralized, and I'd like to avoid including two links to what is essentially the same topic. I've already included a link to this Scoundrel post, but I'm happy to change if people feel the other link is better.

So I'll leave it to BGG: If you think the link mfaulk posted is a better repository for all things Scoundrel, please thumb his post. If you like things the way they are, please thumb this post instead.

I'll utilize the same voting system any time somebody feels there's a "better" link out there.

(Oh, and thanks to paddirn for pointing me to a place I could obtain the class icons!)

I partly just posted it because you never know how threads are going to evolve....

That's true, and if it does get some traction (which it looks like it may be doing) then I'd welcome people changing their votes. I'll try to keep the links updated with whichever one seems to be the popular choice.

But I'm going to be steadfast in sticking to a single thread for each subject; otherwise there won't be much difference between my list and the strategy forum itself.

Really looking forward to unlocking the Phoenix Uterus, whatever that is. That sounds like something out of Kingdom Death.

So true! I still use your hunt and AI boards, by the way

...or I will once gloomhaven releases its grasp on my life.

I'm letting the thread creators decide the names (except for Phoenix Uterus; I couldn't let that one pass by)

I propose this thread for the Uterus class:
https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1737418/two-miniatures-char...

There is A LOT more useful discussion in that thread.

Added! Though I'm going out of the country for a while, so I can't add class icons at the moment.

Whatever country you're in right now, get out ASAP. If they won't let you upload Gloomhaven class icons, it's not worth being there!

Not that it matters a whole lot, but we've been calling 'Five Circles' class the 'Ubisoft' class instead, because, c'mon, that's totally the Ubisoft logo.

This thread should be stickied, no? Isaac Childres redirects people to it, if anything, it'll have him some time in linking other folks to this.

Also, suggest you add missing class icons.
