I need help for the final 5 levels for this character build. I'm going for a "gish" build combining spell casting and martial abilities. My initial thought is Eldritch Knight, but I think there may be something/some combo of things that is better.
I would like to push BAB as high as possible, and possibly also gain some of the lost fighter bonus feats, but also 9th level spells are a must.
This campaign is not in a specific setting, so setting specific classes are out, unless they can be tweaked to fit a neutral setting. My DM is allowing all other 3.5 material.
Current class levels: Fighter 4/Wizard 1/Runesmith 5/Abjurant Champion 5/??? 5
What class/combination of classes would optimize this build, based on the above parameters?
After some thought/research I'm thinking Shadowcraft Mage if my DM lets me take it as a Dwarf (the campaign's big bad is a necromancer that summons dark creatures, think Kingdom Heart's Heartless, and i could argue affinity/ learning from the enemy), I'm just not sure if it works without the levels of Shadowcaster.
