The Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Class Decks are published by Paizo Publishing. Currently there are 7 different class decks. One for each of the major classes; Bard, Cleric, Fighter, Ranger, Rogue, Sorcerer and Wizard. Each one consists of over 100 new cards that adds 3 new specialty archetypes and redesigns the original class. It also adds new allies, weapons, spells and loot cards for each class. These can be used with either the Rise of the Runelords or Skull & Shackles sets.
For the basics on how to play, check out either of my reviews for the base sets.
Each of these decks adds an extra 109 new cards that can be used with any of the base sets. As with each of the previous sets and decks, the artwork is amazing. There are lots of different archetypes to really hone and customize your characters or to change and further adapt your present character classes. Each deck really expands onto the already amazing look and feel of the game. Everything looks and feels very nice. The cards are very sturdy and high quality. There are lots of great specialty classes. I especially like the Necromancer from the Wizard deck as well as the updated Lem from the Bard deck. The card are great and add a lot to an already great game.

There are no rulebooks included with these decks. All the rules needed to play are provided in the base games.
These cards add a lot to an already packed game. Each deck has new characters to swap up when you want a new challenge. The fact that they can be used with any of the Pathfinder sets is pretty awesome. There are lots of really great spells, items and loot for really pimping out your characters with. It’s a customizer’s dream come true. I very much enjoy each and every deck. These are great.

The Class Decks are a great addition to your game. If you like certain character sets like I do with the Bard and Wizard then you’ll love being able to go deeper into that class with new characters and cards for each one. They are great for solo play or for playing with others. They definitely heighten the experience and add SO much more to the game. Each deck is designed to further expand the class that it is set up for. Even if you never use any of the characters from the class decks, you can upgrade your basic characters with more stuff to make them even cooler. I highly recommend them all. However if you only like a few character classes, then you can pick those up and try them out first before committing to expanding each class. Trust me though, you’ll want to get them all.
