I am making a new 6th lvl PC and will want to do a Fighter. Last time I played a fighter was during the time of AD&D 2ed w/ the Fighter's Handbook.
My idea is to use weapon + light shield. My armor is agile 1/2 plate. I am considering using Aldori sword as main weapon. Now my concern is with the plethora of feats. What will be the best way to maximize his attack/dmg. BTW, the current party is composed of a rogue, summoner, ranger, and a bard. They need a tank.
So far I have chosen:
improved shield bash
I have not chosen my extra feat for being human. I would like to take Vital Strike but it seems that when you get your 3rd attack at level 11 or 12 level you still loose them b/c of this feat.
Feats I have in the back of my head are (in no particular order):
Any help is appreciated. I envision my PC to be frontline character. Not interested in mounted nor range combat.
Help me make him a tough SoB. What flavors can I add to it? Trip or bull rush or criticial fighter? Any specific feats or feat tree? Pros/Cons?
