I have a Pally I'm TRing through a few of the melee classes to try to make her into a pretty good tank (as that was her initial concept, way back in the days of cap14, though I never followed through with it).
So she has PL:Pally, and if I can make it through the last couple levels here soon, will have PL: Barbarian. I'm looking at Fighter next, and am wondering if there is anything inherently horrible about going Fighter12/Cleric6. The Cleric levels are for a modicum of self-healing, as well as wand usage, etc. RadServ1 would be for fun, plus occasional free heals are always a plus, even if it's low numbers. Playing as a Barbarian has really opened my eyes on how painful it can be to try to solo / grind without guaranteed groups.
Oh, right, that only adds to 18, so either go to Fig14 or Clr8, I've no preference.
I should add, all my gear is focused towards heavy armor and THF/BastardSword, so taking Monk or trying to TWF is not a very good option for me.
