I have a "Sword and Board" fighter (that occasionally uses Two Handed Fighting) that I am considering on multiclassing 2 levels into either paladin or rogue, and really can't decide. Upon pouring over the pros and cons of each decision, I found various threads and wiki articles on how BAB affects attack speed and number of hits in an animation sequence.
I've gotten quite lost in the statistics and and various formulas, and so would like to know if there is a simpler answer to this question:
-Is +20 actually faster than +19 in terms of rate of attacks per time frame? Or is +19 actually faster because of some odd factor? (Such as additional attack animations being slower, the attack speed bonus not fitting in properly with other buffs, or some other obscure reason.)
