Does D&D 3.5e have official random starting wealth tables for the classes given in the Complete supplements? I know there's a table for the core classes in the Player Handbook, but I can't find an equivalent table in the Complete books.

OK, decided to look into this.
There are no nice, neat tables that I can find. That said, the actual information does appear to be available, excepting for the Wu Jen.
Complete Adventurer is the most straight-forward: it’s included in each class’s entry as Starting Gold.
Complete Warrior neglected starting wealth entirely, but it’s included in the official Errata. Since the Errata is free, I think it’s safe to reproduce that here:
It’s always a good idea to check the Errata. Wizards has made some hilarious mistakes (my favorite is when they neglected to include any DCs at all in Tome of Magic for an entire type of Truenaming check), so the Errata is good to know.
For Complete Arcane, I can’t find any direct note of the starting wealth, and it doesn’t appear to be in the Errata. However, the Warlock and Warmage “Starting Packages” each have starting money in addition to equipment. I believe the rule is, you take the Starting Package’s starting money after items, and multiply it by 10. The Wu Jen doesn’t have a Starting Package that I can see, however.
Complete Divine is like Complete Arcane, but all of the classes have a Starting Package.
Weird Page on Wizards’ Website
I just found this page, which, among other things, has this:
(omitted: some asterisks indicating some details relevant only to the “Mark of Heroes” campaign)
Since for this “Mark of Heroes” campaign, everyone gets maximum gold, 200 gp seems to be 5d4×10 gp, 160 gp is 4d4×10 gp, and 120 gp is 3d4×10 gp.
Maybe that seems “more official” but since this page is for some weird product (cards to “unlock” races and classes?) that I’ve never heard of, I’m not sure what to make of it.
