You want pally for the extra smiting power and fear immune. Also iirc pally and BG levels were made to stack for the purpose of BG spells.
However I can't really recommend building one of these at the present time since there are currently NO significant advantages to building a "pure" BG over one of the two quasiclasses - BK or lash (both of which have FA/BBT versions posted). I'm sorely tempted to reincarnate mine into a lash except that I'd like to keep him around for when (in case) the changes are done. So if you don't mind feeling like the small guy in the locker room when around pallies, CoTs, lashes and BKs, then feel free to build one.

haha ok then. I might as well make the BK out of it and wait to make a smiter when I get HA or Pharlan. I dunno yet though, might mess around with your BG build in the test chamber and see what I come up with.
Never new about this build and its basicly what I will do with my Yuan-ti when I get Pharlan subby. I did a rough check with 6 Fighter and 4 Rogue you only lose +1d6 to your sneak attack and you gain 1 to each save and an extra feat. I am thinking when I do my version skipping exotic wep just becuase other then that yeah this is alot like mine I also think on mine I gave up dex for more STR becuase it is fun to really hurt things. I believe I also started with more CHA on my plan for it to avoid taking Great Charismas and free up more feats. I can try and find the feat progression for mine beyond that its similar. I just need Pharlan to make it so Im waitin till I can get my hands on that then gunna build it fresh and reinc my yuan-ti to something else new and fun with the same classes obviously.
The reason I did 5/5 on this one is you get a 20% XP pen with pharlan otherwise. If you're working with a human based subby or one with a fighter or rogue FC then 6/4 fighter rogue is preferable dues to saves and an extra feat. On pharlan you really don't need the extra feat.
the main point of taking fighter is going with exotic weapon (bastard sword) and getting devcrit. Since bastard sword is one of the better weapons (although the Dis one needs modification to be very effective in hells)
I agree the feat isn't needed but who doesn't like free feats I think I might do it 6/4 and just eat the 20% still forget what I have down its all at home but I did leave dex low for getting 20 starting CHA and I think a touch more STR not sure on that one.
The 30th BG level does almost nothing for you, probably better off going 6 fighter/5 rogue/29 BG with a level of rogue at 40 for a rogue skill dump and pick up an extra feat while you are at it. This also gives you +1 BAB over the 5/5/30 version.
