First of all, BAB basics Base attack bonus is a single number, not the +13/+8/+3 array you're used to see. This means your BAB in the example I just made would be 13 and this (being between 11 and 25) would grant you a second attack at -5 and a third attack at -10, hence the array. This also means that, when summing BABs from different sources, you sum two ...

This is covered in Epic Level Basics. Epic Attack Bonus Similarly, the character’s base attack bonus does not increase after character level reaches 20th. However, the character does receive a cumulative +1 epic bonus on all attacks at every odd-numbered level beyond 20th, as shown on Table: Epic Save and Epic Attack Bonuses. Any time a feat, prestige ...

Taking Paladin now will not add a lot of tankiness. From Valor, you already have Medium Armor, Shields and Martial weapons, and most importantly, Extra Attack. As you can not swap existing levels to Paladin, I would not multiclass, unless: You expect to meet a lot of casters/monsters that make you save, as Aura of Protection would help you a lot in that ...

Unless you can redo your level 9 Bard into a level 8 bard level 1 Paladin, I'm not sure that taking 4 or 8 levels of Paladin is worth it. (4 or 8 levels of paladin would be your best option multi-classing, and you'd only want to take your first level of paladin at level 13) I'm currently playing a melee bard dwarf which has much worse stats than you do, and ...

I'll try to get the simpler issues done first - and the simplest one is Great Weapon Fighting. You should not take this. If you're using a spear, it is strictly inferior to the Duelling Fighting Style. See my answer here for the analysis. It's especially true for you because you want to tank, and for a quick and easy boost to your tankiness it's hard to go ...

You're all set to go As a Rogue 4/Fighter 3/Shadowblade 2 you can level up any of the three classes at any point you want to, if you wanted to level up Rogue, Fighter, or Shadowblade you'd be free to do so as long as you didn't lose any of the prerequisites for the prestige class. The only time in which you wouldn't be able to advance a class anymore is in ...

The past DM was wrong. A prestige class is simply a class with prerequisites to attain. The past DM was likely seeing prestige classes as a hard upgrade based on old games like the Shining Force series where once made, the choice could not be reverted. This is obviously incorrect as many prestige classes only have 5 to 10 levels, which means a character ...

It's totally legit for a fighter 3/rogue 4/shadowblade 2 to take that next level as fighter, rogue, or shadowblade Generally, after taking one or more levels in any class—base or prestige—, a character can take levels in any classes for which he meets the requirements and that he isn't barred from entering or continuing (e.g. taking one or more levels of ...
