I looked everywhere, but it seems we don't have any handbook for the fighter's class. Why?

Won't help the class to contribute.

Because the Fighter class has no actual class features and there aren't enough feats to make getting that many bonus feats useful. Almost everyone dips for 2 or 4 levels. Some go further to get dungeon crasher alternative feature. I've only seen 1 build that was worth anything and was fighter 20, and that was an insane tripper of doom.

@Sstrad: If you like the Fighter and got access to some sources and time... Why don't you make a fighter handbook? Would be really nice Big Grin
Ofc, it's a lot of work and won't be like a way to uber-over-powered builds, but it would help a lot of people, I'm pretty sure.

This. Anything a fighter does can be done by another class with the same feats. Weapon Specialisation does not count as a "thing".

EDIT:

It's more... the fighter class is too generic for you to decide on it before you decide your character concept (every class "fights"). There could be, say, a TWF handbook with fighter builds in it, but a handbook for fighters wouldn't really make sense. It's like a cookbook of recipes that use salt.

The tier system in a nutshell:
Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.

Someone needs to port that over and update it.  I think it doesn't mention the Hit and Run fighter variant?
