    Default Stacking Stances

    I'm getting ready to TR my ranged character into his third and final ranger life (for the past life feats) and I'm working out the feats I will take, but I've hit a snag. I've decided on a pure Deepwood Stalker (not up for debate, as I'm not a monkcher/AA clone, and DWS makes a better pure than AA, in my opinion). I'm used to taking precision on my ranged lives for the accuracy and fortification bypass (which would be good for a DWS, considering they have sneak attacks). What I'm wondering is, is it going to stack with the DWS tier 5 Heavy Draw active? I mean, Heavy Draw acts like power attack for bows and thrown weapons and power attack and precision cannot be active at the same time, but then Heavy Draw isn't an actual feat. What about archer's focus and precise shot/improved precise shot?

    Yes. Focus doesn't stack with IPA (you can have one or the other) but the rest can be all active simultaneously. I'm currently running with IPS, Precision and Heavy Draw all at the same time.

    P.S. IMHO, you'd still get some mileage by splashing lightly into AA. Things like returning arrows or force burst are nothing to sneeze at.

    Thanks.

    Well, of course I'm going to get the arrows and a few things from AA, as tempest has little to offer. The first 3 AP I get will be AA core 1 and conjure arrows.
