    Here we are analyzing and asking for advices for another prestige class. :D I recently considered to include in my party a blackguard...I made some tries with cheats to compare blackguard/barbarian and blackguard/fighter.Barbarian/blackguard cannot use spell while in rage but is a formidable tank.Fighter/blackguard instead does a little bit more damage(cause o w.f,w.specialization,etc.) but has less hp...My ideas were a split 10/10 barbarian/ blackguard(trading greater rage for 1d6 sneak attack more)or a 10/10 fighter/ blackguard.What do you think about this builds?Curious about your opinions as always :)

    Not bad, a Half-orc for the first and a dwarf for the second just from a Role-playing point of view.

    Blackguards work best when they are fallen Paladins, they get extra bonuses to thier Blackguard abilities based on thier previous Paladin abilities, I am unsure whether this has been fixed with recent Temple+ versions, but it wasn't working as it should last I heard.

    Still It doesn't work.And being a fallen paladin and go blackguard is impossible right now because of alignment incompatibility.In theory It could be possible changing in game paladin alignment...

    What isn't working? I just tested and it works fine as far as I can tell. Including changing the alignment for Paladins.
    As far as I know the only missing feature is the conversion of Paladin levels to BKG levels if you take it at level 10.
