Okay so we're getting a fighter who has his one trick, and starting at level 8 he can start picking up first level tricks again... and starting at level 17 he can start picking up first level tricks again...


How exactly is this any different from the current fighter?


Sure you made the numbers bigger, and he attacks more.... but it's still got the same core underlying problems: The fighter doesn't get to do cool things. He full attacks, and he's done. The full attacking as a standard action is nice and all, but I mean the Barbarian (which you replaced) could do a pounce attack starting at level 1...

The immediate interrupt attack twice a round is the only cool thing I see here, and even that is just more attacking. True Grit is kind of nice though I suppose.
