By RAW, only leveling. Base Attack Bonus is a class feature, and it changes when you gain a level in some class. Though there are prestige classes that advance spellcasting AND base attack bonus simultaneously, for example Eldritch Knight. Take a look around, there should be more of them, at least in 3.5 there were. You also might want to adapt Battle ...

Classes Five classes stand out to me as ideal choices for entry to warshaper. Pugilist Fighter Pugilist is a variant fighter from Dragon vol. 310. It gains Improved Unarmed Strike, slightly increased unarmed strike damage (but it doesn’t scale like the monk’s), the Endurance feat, and then one other feat (or special “Pugilist ...

The traditional path to Arcane Archer involves multiclassing into Fighter or another combat-focused class that gets +1 BAB per level (instead of the Sorcerer's +1/2 BAB per level). Typically the Arcane Archer has a mix of an arcane class (wizard or sorcerer most often, but others work) and a martial class that can use bows well (fighter or ranger, but ...

Duskblade 13/Crusader 1/Jade Phoenix Mage 6 seems to me to be much superior to Duskblade 20. You hit the really big duskblade class feature and retain your highest-level spells. The issue is timing. The best levels to take Crusader are 5th, 9th, or 13th. Coincidentally, however, 5th, 9th, and 13th are also the levels where it is most painful to have a ...

A non-standard ways of being a warshaper that I played in the past: Use the unearthed Arcana ranger variant. You lose your combat style feats. If you take 5 ranger levels, this is 1 feat. You gain wild shape as a druid and barbarian fast movement. Ranger 5/Master of Many Forms 2/Warshaper 4 Champion of the Wild ACF (CC) will give you a bonus feat at ...

Just a list of points to consider, without actual shot at the really optimal build. Don't do Fighter4, whatever the variant is. Do Barbarian dip for pounce (Lion Totem, Complete Champion), maybe 2 levels for pounce and free improved trip (Wolf Totem, Unearthed Arcana). Tome of Battle is at least worth looking into. Either Crusader for early healing access, ...

Technically, No. You have already quoted the important information. Gaining new spells per day is not the same as learning new spells. SRD for wizard states: Spellbooks At each new wizard level, she gains two new spells of any spell level or levels that she can cast (based on her new wizard level) for her spellbook. At any time, a wizard can also ...

Quoting from D20PFSRD A dragon disciple adds his level to his sorcerer levels when determining the powers gained from his bloodline. If the dragon disciple does not have levels of sorcerer, he instead gains bloodline powers of the draconic bloodline, using his dragon disciple level as his sorcerer level to determine the bonuses gained. He must choose a ...

By my reading of the ability, it only grants bonus spells to sorcerers. Non-sorcerers specifically gain bloodline powers, not bonus spells, bonus feats (except through the Dragon Disciple's own bonus feat ability), or bloodline arcana. However, that's a strict rules-as-written reading. The intent seems to be to allow you to gain those spells at the ...
