Cavaliers and Barbarians

Over on the Adventures Dark and Deep forums, I have posed a question, and I invite you all to chime in.

Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of people say that they were not fans of the way that Cavaliers and Barbarians were implemented in Unearthed Arcana. Unfortunately, specifics have been few and far between.

What are your specific problems with the Cavalier and Barbarian classes as they were originally presented in UA?

Please post your replies over in the forums.
