Quote:Could you elaborate? It looks like you're talking about combat reflexes working well with a Dex build, but the whip is the only finesse reach weapon and it's a bit of an odd duck with regards to how its reach works.
Assuming as little as a 15 point buy you can take a 16/14/12/12/10/7 stat buy which gives you 2 additional attacks and allows flatfooted attacks which is potentially 3 bonus hits with a dex ioun stone yielding a 5th.
While the builds do work with dex it's just as good str using the 14 in dex. 3 bonus attacks is equal to TWF, ITWF, GTWF only at higher to hit bonuses. Although they are less reliable.
I agree that's the best stat strategy with a reach weapon. I'm confused by the reference to agile weapons, which are used in a finesse build.
Combat reflexes can scale up on agile weapons or even just with an ioun stone to be one feat with a potential 3 or 4 extra attacks.
