    I've delved into the AA tree which is something I've never done before. I got a nice boost to my ranged effectiveness.

    The drow racial tree is horribly broken though it looks like it should have great synergy with tempest if it ever gets fixed.

    I had high hopes for this character, but overall I'm underwhelmed by the changes to it. I think I came out about even, when on paper it should of been a nice boost to dps. (i.e. I added dex to damage and all the xendrik and tempest damage enhancements but came out with the same dps as before.)

    How is it going for the rest of you dex fighters?
    I got a TWF rogue, DEX-based, that seems to do just about as much damage as he did pre-EP. Then again, he's got a boatload of special proc weapons (like dual vorpals, dual disruptors, dual smiters), so even if it was worse, when the proc goes off I'll never notice much anyways.

    So has anyone gone from pre-U19 dex based to post U-19 dex based TWF and seen an increase in base damage? (i.e. comparing first number before and first number after.)
    /sigh

    I've not seen this mentioned yet in this thread but something to consider is fighter/monk combo. Second core of ninja spy (level 3) gives dex to hit and damage with any piercing or slashing weapon. When combined with Kensai tier 5 one with the blade that allows you to be centered with your focus group it's makes for interesting possibilities. Specifically dual wielding khopeshes while still having the reflex save to pull of evasion. Your tactics will suck but you trade that for evasion...it's a matter of choice I guess.
