This is an attempt to optimize the well known PHB class. Unfortunately, people only take the class for the bonus feats, as a dip. Lately, getting fighter beyond 2nd level got some additional credit with the introduction in the Dungeonscape supplement of the Dungeon Crusher alternative class feature.
In this guide, i won't be using fighter as a dip though. It may be mysterious, but actually a lot of people enjoy playing a fighter, even fighter 20. I am well aware that clerics, druids, wizards, artificers, etc are powerful classes. However i can't say that playing these classes at such an optimized (close to theoretical optimization) degree is actually fun.
I'd also like to thank and congratulate: Snow Savant and LogicNinja for giving me ideas from these threads:
Also lots of ideas come from:
