I've tested out two of my Monks and retooled them with the beta enhancements. Contrary to my initial reactions from the alpha in terms of questioning the overall thoughts, I found both Shintao and Ninja Spy adjustments to be generally pretty workable, if not usable. I still miss Rise of the Phoenix as a raise-dead ability, not a raise-yourself ability, and the overpowering of giving all Monk stances, I think I can overlook it as the enhancements are so versatile to create a dramatic change in power.
However, there is a still the matter of no Void Strike I or equivalent available on any tree. Without this, the auto-granted finisher feats Curse of the Void and Moment of Clarity cannot be done without wasting a LOT of points into the Henshin tree to get Void Strike IV.
Curse of the Void was a particular favorite for some dark Monks to sow chaos during a fight with its charm effect.
A simple way to rectify this is to auto-grant the original Void Strike I effect as a feat at the same level that these finisher feats are auto-granted: Level 10. Fixes the issue without complicating the enhancement tree. How about it, devs?
