The other option I am realizing is to go 1 ranger, then 6 monk, then 11 ranger, 2 cleric.  But that delays IPS further, but you can take Precision at level 2 as a martial arts feat and lose deflect arrows.  I believe the way I have above is better as deflect arrows seemed to work nice and I still get pretty much every other thing I need from the feat list.  Maybe if you want to add completionist, but for what you get (+1 enchantment DC), it is kind of a high cost imho.

Also, I just remembered the main reason... to unlock spell focus: Enchantment for level 6 feat selection.

 

**Also, Imp critical cannot be taken at 9, so it is really this:

9- Greater enchantment focus

12- Imp crit

15 master of forms

Also, you need to get ki regen from henshin mystic contemplation when you get 10k stars at lvl 10 and keep it until you are lvl 18 and get through GM of forms Water.  Again, this is not an easy heroic build that makes sacrifices and trades off when leveling up.  However, I do find the end build satisfying with a very high wisdom to damage and high DCs for arrow embues and Falconer bird attacks.
