Make Dragon Disciples great again!

Hello all!
So at the moment, this class is just a noob trap.
I'd like to suggest to fix it - just give them high BAB and make DD levels count for melee set bonus - fighter, barbarian, monk sets.
Another possibility to consider - is to keep med BAB but allow spellcasting progression, at least for bards and sorcerers.
What do you think?

Dear Konst3d,
i am sure you have some nostalgic feelings with RDD, but please remember RDD PrC was always a Noob Trap. They never was great, even on OC or Motb. 10 lvl RDD are Nobbuilds, even in Original Campaign. You can search at DB and you wont fnd any Power Build with 10 RDD. Some EDM Builds has 4 RDD Dip. Class itself brings mostly Ability Points like Heartwarder and has same low use. In a World where you easily hit now 2 Ability Caps, Ability Points from PrC are definitv minor targets.
I think Devstaffs To Do List is long, so my Opinion is, RDD has very low Priority. Even high BAB wouldnt make that PrC much better and 1/2 Spellcasting Progression wouldnt help that Class much too. Just spread a few Abilty Points over this World.

Sry Buddy, would like to see some more important Stuff before!

It's very low priority - sure.
And the reason I proposed this - is MAD builds, for example str\wis\cha monks, even with +6 x2 to stats, they are still attrib hungry and DD could be useful, but not in it's current state.

RDD can be used now, it is a simple way to play fighter on lvl 1-30 and choose something else after relevel.
