    I have 35 AP in AA tree, took banishing and smiting arrows as they give you passive bonuses to enchantment DC, also T5 from AA for arrow of slaying and AC destruction (acid arrows).
    In falconry, you don't need WIS to hit as it comes from Zen archery.
    T4 from Falconry is worth having, especially deadly instinct which provides massive damage boost and expose weakness for fortification bypass.
    Also 9 points in Aasimar racial for WIS and healing hands.

    I am yet to try DWS tree, few real good things there.

    ED, Shiradi all the way, I think after last changes, this is by far the best option.
    Twists: Martial Hymn T4, enlightenment and dance of flowers, plus I tried Tsunami (T3) as it knocks down enemies in front of you, it has WIS based DC and only 6 secs cooldown. Really handy to knock down mobs that come too close.

    I just noticed that core 5 on AA also grants +1 crit dmg (as does DWS core 4). So for enhancements, elf + AA seems the way to go if you take 6 ranger.

    dws core 4 is +1 crit range whereas shadow arrows is critical damage multiplier. Multiplier is the important one, crit range is less important on a build where the burst comes from auto crits.

    14/6 Wood Elf

    14 in elf for AA, 41 racial AA, 13 in DWS for sniper shot + aimed shot, 22+ in falconry -- 90 AP total with ideal version having max AP

    8 monk / 6 ranger / 6 fighter aasimar/aasimar scourge

    (whatever racial you have for cores) - 11 AP kensai (crit multi), 22 AP ranger AA (para arrows), 12 falconry (wis / damage), 36 DWS (strikes, head shot, improved archers focus) -- 81 non racial AP with ideal version having at least 7 racial AP)

    14/6 gets wings and improved evasion + significantly more cc / damage + better move speed

    8/6/6 gets heals and requires way less racial ap

    Both require a decent amount of racial AP to make worth it. I'd argue you'd be better off going a 14 cleric / 6 monk healing cc archery build if you lack the racial AP. Or a knife or shuriken thrower instead for dps.

    At Level 6 now. Note that one interesting early optional play style is centered shortswords TWF: Take magical training from tier 1 of AA + tempest + conjured shortswords from Feydark. You run around with a pair of force dmg shortswords and can switch to bows once you take zen archery.

    If you go 2Monk, 6 Ranger, 14 Monk, then the first feats are: PBS (1 regular), Zen Archery (1st Monk bonus at level 1), Dodge (level 2, monk feat), Mobility (2nd monk bonus at level 3), then Shot on the run at 6, ten thousand Stars at 8 (3rd monk).

I would be grateful for some feedback on monkchers in current update for both heroics and epics. Thanks in advance.
    I was thinking the same, so I started playing with a planner, here is a first stab at a wisdom based build with trap capability.

    Any comments & or improvements would be appreciated.

    14 pally / 6 monk elf used to be pretty good .... many many years ago. Don't know if it would be any good nowadays.
