Today I stumbled upon this Hybrid Classes page (d20pfsrd) and since I once bought a few source books in PDF I went to see if I already own the relevant book (I usually play liberally-houseruled versions of 3.5e).

Sadly, the only Pathfinder rule-book I own is the Core Rulebook (the others I own are guide-books, bestiaries, and adventures).

In what source books do hybrid classes appear?

What about the base classes?

Are they available as PDF? Print? Both?

  • The hybrid classes (arcanist, bloodrager, brawler, hunter, investigator, shaman, skald, slayer, swashbuckler, and warpriest) appear in the Advanced Class Guide (Amazon, Paizo).
  • The alchemist, cavalier, inquisitor, oracle, summoner, and witch base classes appear in the Advanced Player's Guide (Amazon, Paizo), as does the anti-paladin alternate class.
  • The magus base class appears in Ultimate Magic (Amazon, Paizo).
  • The gunslinger base class appears in Ultimate Combat (Amazon, Paizo), as do the ninja & samurai alternate classes.
  • The vigilante base class appears in Ultimate Intrigue (Amazon, Paizo).
  • The shifter base class appears in Ultimate Wilderness (Amazon, Paizo).
  • The vampire hunter base class appears in The World of Vampire Hunter D (a stretch goal for the Vampire Hunter D: Message from Mars comic on Kickstarter; Paizo is reportedly planning to print & sell more copies of this book, but currently only the copies provided to backers are in existence).
  • The occult classes (kineticist, medium, mesmerist, occultist, psychic, and spiritualist) appear in Occult Adventures (Amazon, Paizo).
  • The unchained classes (which are essentially streamlined/re-balanced versions of certain previously-existing classes) appear in Pathfinder Unchained (Amazon, Paizo).

These books are all available in print from a variety of sources (except the World of Vampire Hunter D book), including Amazon, directly from the publisher (Paizo), your FLGS, and possibly in normal large chain bookstores (though availability there will be pretty hit-or-miss). The PDFs are, to my knowledge, only available directly from Paizo.
