Thoughts? My plan is to follow the template for enhancements and feats. Will this build still be viable endgame?

Does this build use way of the assassin 2 as one of its main attacks? If not, I would drop int to 12 or 14 and put those points into Str/Dex/Con.

is the main build i am going to mimic. They are virtually identical, i just added all the skills i wanted to focus on.

I love looking at teh builds and reading the forums to see how to best make guys, but sometimes I cant find the skills to focus on. I already re-rolled once due to dropping points into Bluff instead of Diplomacy.

Yes it should work.

Seems solid enough. You may want to put a single skill point into tumble near the beginning just to unlock it. (It's great to tumble around when slowed in some way, and it will reduce falling damage you take until you get featherfall, or when you forget to equip the featherfall.)

You can drop a point from balance to do so, with a dex based build you'll end up with more than enough balance to make virtually every check on a 1 by level ~10-12 in most cases.
