So whats the point of fighters again? If the rogue gets bonus feats with rogue 'talents' every two levels, I dont see a point!

The figher is still at a d10 while the rogue is at a d8... an average loss of 1hp for sneak attack plus feats! I think everyone would choose that. AC can easily be made up for also, in my opinion.

Rogue gets a medium Base Attack Bonus - they qualify for the more gruesome feats much later than a Fighter would.

A Fighter gets medium and heavy armor, and proficiency with every martial weapon. They also eventually get to move really well in heavier armor - better protection with no loss of mobility.

Fighters also get Weapon Training, which are scaling to-hit/damage bonuses with entire weapon groups. Rogues do not.

A Rogue's selection of 'bonus feats' is much more limited than a Fighter's. A Rogue chooses from a list of special abilities, and can only pick each ability once.

Lastly, in Pathfinder, there are a good deal of great combat feats that only a Fighter can qualify for.

Rixx pretty much has it. 5 Dex in full plate, 7 if it is Mithral, is pretty awesome. Also heavy and medium armors all got bumped by 1 AC. So there is a significant difference in AC now.

The weapon training also adds to CMD with those weapons. So it helps a bit.
