comment Are there homebrew fix classes or rules that put Fighting types and Roguish types into Tier 1?
@HeyICanChan Er... that's a different question than the one I want answered, though. I don't think it's hard to justify that a class that's based on Rogue or Fighter archetypes doesn't have access to spells unless they're an odd combo class like a Swordsage or a Factotum. But I'm also saying that a class can have a mechanic similar to spellcasting as long as that it isn't intended to duplicate spells. For a Fighter replacement, think of the fluff behind Warblade's maneuvers. I'm not sure why me saying "The fighter doesn't cast spells" is thematically controversial, though.

I'm curious as to why the few downvoters are downvoting this question. If a comment could be left on the reasons so I could improve my question, that would be helpful.

@HeyICanChan Yes, that brings the class out of the thematic archetype of the Fighter or the Rogue, but spellcasting-like mechanics are fine.

Thematically, the classes don't cast spells. Mechanically, solutions that resemble Maneuvers from the tome of battle or other solutions that mechanically resemble spell-casting are acceptable.

What's actually said in the answer is that "such classes cannot exist". We already have evidence of fighting type classes using a mechanic similar to spell-slots, though, so that's the point I'm disagreeing with.

I've downvoted because this answer's reasoning that non-casters, by definition, cannot be Tier 1 or 2, is suspect. A class could introduce a mechanic (similar to Book of Nine Swords maneuvers) that equates to spellcasting, and it could introduce mechanics that are highly versatile and powerful that aren't spellcasting.

comment Is there a legal way to get D&D 5e core rulebook PDFs?
I think the reason this has been so heavily downvoted (and why I refuse to vote on it) is that this answer cites no reason or resource for your method being legal. It's essentially the same as the currently top rated answer, but it doesn't have the justification the top answer does. This could be a good answer with just a little addition.
