With the new suggestions of feats opening up enhancement lines I would like to suggest a few for weapon finesse:

Insightful Strike (Swashbuckler): 4ap
Light weapon only adds intelligence bonus to damage against mobs that are subject to sa.
(Gives a small boost to damage for finesse builds)

Slashing Blades (Dervish): 2 ap
Allows scimitars to be used as light weapons for all purposes (in DDO this may be extended to rapier for ballance)
(This would give feat poor classes a boost in that they may not need OTW as well as finesse)

1. Insightful Strike is already present...in the form of xbow damage for mechanics. It's an interesting concept but I see too few uses. If you use weapon finesse you're an Assassinate/SA assassin, a mechanic, or a monk. Monks have no Int.

2. Slashing Blades is unnecessary. Rapiers already count as light weapons for the purpose of both weapon finesse and two weapon fighting. Scimitars would not add much.

1. No not necessarily, and even a small amount of int can add to dps. A monk with CE has at least 13 int, add a +6 item and it is a nice little boost in dps.

2. No Rapiers do NOT count as a light weapon for 2 weapon fighting at all. If you weild one in the off hand you are at -4 unless you have OTWF and therefore another feat. Scimitar allows a greater variety of choice and is the weapon specified by the book.

I thought its was -2 for having a rapier in my off hand... anyway, I've not had any issues hitting, but I have finesse and the full TWF line.

On the flip side, a small boost for us finesse dex fighters would be nice.

being able to use scimitars instead of rapiers would allow you to use scimitar vorpols instead of say kukri or hand axe vorpols for non assasin finesse builds.

how about a scaled down version of the Champion of the wild pcr from P&P?
