Actually Tactician is another option... So I am considering that instead of one of the piercing options.

Right now none of the DR feats are important.

At previous endgames, some of them would have been. From Mod 8 to U10 Pierce Silver would have been excellent and Pierce Cold Iron situationally useful. From U11 to U12 Adamantine would have been excellent.

Now, however, DR bosses are few and far between, and DR hasn't increased as much as player damage per hit (so not breaking DR isn't all that bad). I'd look at other feats instead.

This.

if you are a thf, look at perfect two weapon fighting (not a typo) it gives 5% double strike, and after that perfect two handed fighting.
if you are unarmed, then perfect twf and tactician
