I have to think that i always build the wrong monk with all the stats on str,dex,con,wis missing INT to get combat expertize.

but is it so useful ? is it necessary to waste some point on int just to get it ?

please help me to understand.

The reason so many monks take combat expertise is because it's a prerequisite for whirlwind attack. With wraps, whirlwind hits everything around you twice, and the 2nd hit can have offhand and doublestrike price, so often hits 4 times.

Yep, I consider WW attack at 6th level on a monk pretty much required. That means combat expertise is required, which means investment in some INT is also mandatory.
WW attack really IS that good.

Good feat for tanks, and a prerequisite for whirlwind. There is also a twist for +20 PRR while you have the stance enabled.

fyi combat expertise wards against rage effects so do not have active in Fury of the Wild. You probably were not anyway, just saying for other folks
