That's still rather nice.

Updated for MotU
I decided to tune the build further towards DPS.
Exchanged Empower for ITHF and Extend for GTHF.
Reasons are simple:
I only use Empower for BB and DP. Not for healing. I find myself using those spells less and less, but they are still OK to use without.
For Extend: I liked it for Divine Power, Divine Favor, Holy Aura, Recitation, Prayer. The benefits of the latter 3 have become redundant and therefore having extend just for DP and DF is just not worth it.
DPS overall is pretty nice for a pure fvs with the whole THF chain now, i like it a lot.
I've played variations of this build for more than 18 months. I found Stunning Blow to be highly desired against casters especially in EE content. Helf fighter dilettante can get +2 DC to it as well.
Also splashing 2 monk is very effective compared to the minor tradeoffs. Easily allows you to fit in the feats you want. My current setup:
1 Half-Elf Dilettante: Fighter
1 Monk: Power Attack
3 Great Cleave
15 Monk: Toughness
15 Stunning Blow
18 Improved Critical (Slashing)
21 Overwhelming Critical
24 Epic Toughness
Cleave + Great Cleave + Momentum Swing + Lay Waste is super fun. Personally I've never found a need for Empower Healing on any Favored Soul build, even with 892 HP. Could swap out Epic Toughness for it if you prefer big number heals.

A more DPS focused build can swap out one of the Greensteel items for Tharnes Goggles.
Primary melee weapon would be eSoS, swapping to eGA or crafted Holy Burst of Greater Bane as needed.
18 STR (16 points) + 4 tome + 6 item + 3 profane + 6 level ups + 1
dilettante + 1 human adaptability + 2 ship + 2 yugo + 5 primal scream
+1 exceptional + 2 insightful = 51
18 CON (16 points) + 3 tome + 7 item + 1 exceptional + 2 insightful +
1 human greater adaptability + 2 ship + 2 yugo + 5 primal scream = 41
(screams for a +4 tome)
8 DEX + 3 tome + 6 item + 2 ship = 19
8 INT + 3 tome +2 ship = 13
8 WIS + 3 tome +2 ship = 13
12 CHA (4 points) + 3 tome + 7 item + 2 ship = 24
-3 CON/STR if you don't have Primal Scream (but have Rage).
You say at level 20 you use the Antique Great Axe. I am wondering where you picked up martial weapons proficiency or do you take the non-proficiency penalty?
15-20 x3 crits is pretty sweet combined with a Stunning Blow+Trip DC in the mid 50s.
Both toons play very differently, but I like both.
Edit: She was using scimitars at first (Epic Kronzeks+Epic Mirage). Swapped to Longswords later (+4 extra Damage from Enhancements) wielding Tinah + Tier 3 Alchemical Longsword.
But the warhammers are ahead by far damage wise.
