Huh... I am just starting my read through and have a different view...

My first thought was "two good saves, good skill points, low-light vision, and extra attacks to mix in with my normal ones (such as a gore on top of a 2 hander)"... not a bad 1 level dip for someone who expects to end up in melee at all...

That said, I will have to read further do decide if it needs full BAB.
