A player of mine plays a dex barbarian and multiclassed into fighter for a fighting style. His strength score is 8 and he is using fitness weapons based on Dex for attacking. I didn't understand at that time that he can't do that without a strength score of 13 (which he doesn't have). I am leaning to houserule the multiclassing requirements for barbarian to be as the fighter, 13 strength or dex. Are there any problems as they level up that I should be aware of?
Why do I want to allow it? As I understand them, the multiclassing requirements are designed to avoid players to take another class for the features without having any of the stats that normally enable a character to have these features. Someone that is not intelligent can't suddenly become a wizard. Very logical.
However for the dex barbarian, it is not like he does not have the stats for his class. He has a 16 dex, that is above average and the main stat of a dex barbarian. So I do not see a reason why he can't multiclass.
