I'm possibly going to play a variant human fighter in my next campaign with the GWM feat at level 1. I'm going to specialize Champion and I'm not sure when I should go for reckless attacks. Should I do it before level 5 or after?
I'm either leaning towards fighter 3/barbarian 2 or fighter 5/barbarian 2. My thoughts are this:
If I go fighter 3/barbarian 2, I get access to very early GWM + improved crits + reckless attacks. However, I am sacrificing the extra attack for two levels, which could possibly hamper my damage output for quite a large number of fights as leveling gets harder.
