@JeremyECrawford @mikemearls Is there a reason why paladin requires 13 str to multiclass rather than choice of str/dex like fighter?

The ability prerequisites in multiclassing reflect the archetypal abilities for a class, as noted in the class's "Quick Build" section. #DnD https://t.co/iq4SOOai06

Then why is 13 Dex the only option for Ranger? The Quick Build notes Strength as an option as well. pic.twitter.com/eRxlc6ps8E

See how Strength is mentioned in a parenthesis? It's there because it's less archetypal than Dexterity.
