As in the title: I have a half-elf kensei. After taking a look around the juggernaut thread I started flirting with the possiblity of fitting manyshot in him for maximizing burst DPS, and LR him.
His current feat list is as such
The feats in red are prereqs for kensai III. The feats in pink are feats that I feel that losing is unacceptable.Code:01H. Half Elf Dilettante: Paladin 01. Toughness 01F. Power Attack 02F. Stunning Blow 03. Cleave 04F. Great Cleave 06. Weapon Focus: Slash 06F. Two-handed Fighting 08F. Weapon Specialization: Slash 09. Improved Critical: Slash 10F. Greater Weapon Focus: Slash 12. Improved Two-handed Fighting 12F. Greater Weapon Specialization: Slash 14F. Improved Sunder 15. Greater Two-handed Fighting 16F. Superior Weapon Focus: Slash 18. Power Critical 18F. Combat Expertise 20F. Improved Trip 21. Overwhelming Critical 24. Skill Focus: UMD
To fit in manyshot and use it effectively, I need to have Manyshot (depends on Rapid Shot and Point-Blank Shot) and Bow Strength (which depends on Weapon Focus: Ranged). That's 5 feats.
My current thought is losing the THF chain, CE and improved trip for those feats, but I am not sure if, given my normal attack chain is an autocleave (hit-hit-strongest cleave off cooldown), that the loss of glancing blows wouldn't counteract the advantage I'd get from burst manyshot.
Any input is appreciated.
