Somehow i feel like having only 4 pretty much makes you have to have all the basic characters:

- A tank(fighter or paladin)

- A mage(wizard or sorcerer)

- A healer(cleric)

- A thieves tool user(rogue or ranger)

Adding in a 5th would make me fit in a druid bard barbarian warlock whatever other class i feel doesnt fit in the first 4 slots

Yeah I agree, I went for exactly that party.  A 5th would defo mean I have a druid or a bard

Oops, I didn't see that prisoner in the room I cast fireball into...

You really don't need the 4 archetypes. My team is 2 Sorcerer, 1 Rogue, 1 Paladin. Now having played quite a bit I would have probably made a team of 3 Sorcerer and 1 Ranger/Paladin.

Sorcerer always been pretty broken in DnD in my opinion. They have access to so many tools and power.

They can fly, open locks, turn invisible, wreak havoc on single and multiple targets. They have good amount of HP and they can have a feat to wear medium armor.
