Building the Perfect 5e Stat Blocks

I've been trying to come up with the perfect stat block for 5e PCs. As you can see from my signature, I'm in a variety of games, and I'm running one too. Each DM seems to have a slightly different stat block they've requested, and while I'm sure they all have their reasons, I think some of the stat blocks they've created have a bias toward their favourite characters. I've played pretty much every class in 5e except the Druid, and it's crazy how different each character's needs are when it comes to 'at-a-glance' info.

The monk needs track their ki points. The barbarian could use help with raging/not raging stats. Sorcerers have sorcery points. So-on-and-so-forth. With that in mind, I'd like to create a stat block for each class (and even Arcane Trickster & Eldrich Knight, I'm looking at you!some sub-classes). If you'd like to help, join in. Pick your favourite class and build what you think is the perfect stat block.

Also, perfect should really be in quote marks. Everyone is going to have different ideas of what they want/need in there, but there's probably no wrong answers. If someone wants to ask my opinion on something, I'll answer with my opinion/working theory, but just because I started the thread doesn't mean I'm claiming some authority.

Here's the stat block/dashboard I use for the EK I'm currently playing. I usually put it inside a spoilerbutton:
Dashboard36/36 HP || AC 19
Left Hand: Shield || Right Hand: "Faith", Longsword +1
Spell(s) in Effect: None
Cantrips Known: Booming blade, Minor Illusion, Lightning Lure
Spells Known: Shield, Protection from Good and Evil, Magic Missile, Absorb Elements
Spell Slots Remaining: Level One - 2/3
Character Sheet


In my humble opinion it gets everything needed across, and with a link to the character sheet, the DM can pull anything else up that's required (inventory, etc.)

A while back I found a really nice thread here on RPGx with some statblock examples. I've tweaked it a bit since finding it. But I use this. While it's a bit detailed in setting up, updating it isn't hard.

There’s some great ideas here! I’m in the middle of some stuff now, but I’ll have to come back and look again. Thanks everyone!

I've actually updated this Statblock a little more since posting it.

Here's what i've found really successful with my game.
