Another version would be running Fury of the Wild ED.  No changes to the build beyond ED choices.  Wisdom does drop some as well as ranged power, but you get more DPS for sure with more frequent Fury shots.

Looks like I messed up the progression.  I have fixed above, but instead of 7-8 fighter, you need to go 7 fighter, 8 ranger, 9 fighter so you can take IC ranged at lvl 9 with fighter feat and enchantment focus as normal feat.

Fixed progression to be able to get manyshot quicker.  Still will need to do a feat swap if you want IPS earlier... which I usually do.

I am currently in Deep Gnome and liking it more than I liked other races including what I thought would be end build of Aasimar Scourge.  You get wisdom in the cores as well as being short to hit more things with IPS targeting.  The passive choices are nice bonus type things like saves and wand/scroll power.  The key here is being short to utilize IPS more effectively.
