I am looking for melee build that will provide the highest possible DPS for melee. Simple, isn't it?
32 build, and please try to explain as much as possible about your choices.
Race \ Class(es?!) \ thf vs twf \ stats \ feats \ skill \ enhancements \ etc, as much as possible.
Thank you =)

My Barbarian right now does pretty good dps, he is a thf greataxe/falchion user

Race-WF
alignment-chaotic good
Starting stats:
Str-18
dex-14
con-18
wis-6
int-8
cha-6
would have put more in wis and int for skill points and will saves but wanted to twf when i created him, but went thf instead
standing str at level 20 is 34
dex-16
con-28

*feats*
1-Power attack
3-Cleave
6-two handed fighting
9- improved critical
12-toughness or stunning blow
15-improved two handed fighting
18-greater two handed fighting

*skills*
i put them into tumble,spot, and swim
I will be tr'ing him very soon into a 12 fighter 6 barbarian 2 rogue HOrc though

I suppose that this is highly dependant upon gear and what monsters you are fighting ...

Barbarian = probably best blanket dps character, especially with eSoS
Fighter = maybe rivals Barbarian for top dps, also with eSoS
Rogue = good when backstabbing
Ranger = good agaisnt favored enemy
Paladin = good against Devils / Demons / Undead

I mean, they're all good ... but they all have bonuses depending on which PrE you choose and what monsters you are fighting and what gear you are wearing.

For single target DPS I have not really found much better than Nick's Blitz build.

For multi target DPS the Barb is king with a Kensai Figher running right along with him.

HOrc FB hands down, whether you make it a pure 20 barb or splash 2 fighter or 2 rogue levels doesn't really make that much of a difference.
Fighter and Rogue both get a haste boost, fighter an extra feat, rogue 1d6+3 extra sa damage.
Pure and fighter splash have slightly higher attack speeds due to being full BAB, rogue can umd and do traps and has evasion.

I personally like the rogue splash, so here's one, generally just get all Horc and all barb enahncements and you're golden.

20 Rogue, Str-based halfling, TWF Assassin, do not get aggro. You cannot get higher possible DPS.
