My Zen Archer is slotted to reach level 11(PFS) at Origins this weekend and I have almost no clue what to take as my 11th level feat. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


How about posting your current build so we can see what you have already?

It is a ZA, no advice needed lol.

However, knowing your build, I would recommend maybe something for armor class since yours is actually a bit low (eat my Gunslinger's 34, 37 when defensive).

Ah, I knew I was forgetting something! Sorry about that, it has been a long day:
Jablu
Human Zen Archer/ Qinggong Monk 10
(After Racial and Magic Items)
Str 16
Dex 14
Con 12
Int 12
Wis 23
Cha 8
1:Toughness
Human: Improved Initiative
1B: Precise Shot
1B: Perfect Strike(Bows only)
1B: Improved Unarmed Strike
2B: Point Blank Shot
2B: Weapon Focus(Composite Longbow)
3: Deadly Aim
3B: Point Blank Master
5: Defensive Combat Training
6B: Weapon Specialization(Composite Longbow)
6B: Improved Precise Shot
7:
9: Clustered Shots(Retrained to get it)
10B: Improved Critical(Composite Longbow)

Now that I look back, it turns out that I am down a feat for 7th level. I would also accept any advice on that.

Darn you, Hall! You have to text me if anything interesting or funny happens at any of your tables at Origins, I am only up for 2 days.

If you are actually down a feat- go the snapshot line, recommend retraining improved crit to combat reflexes to free up the prereqs, it pays off.

At this point, upping my dex purely to get far enough to get Improved Snapshot wouldn't really be all that worth it in my opinion.

Dark Archive

Ah, forgot about the dex requirement. Very unfortunate.

Dark Archive

Yep. If I felt like just getting crazy, I could get up to a +30 Perception with my 7th level feat

If you can't think of anything else, Extra Ki is always good, especially since your 11th level abilities will start requiring more ki.

If you retrain Improved Crit as your 10th level bonus feat, you can pick up Pinpoint Targeting or Shot on the Run as your 10th level bonus feat (since you can't get those normally), then pick up Improved Crit as your level 11 feat (because you'll have enough BAB then).

If you have the Ranged Tactics Toolbox, you can look at Clinging Climber, Warning Shot, Ranged Disarm, or Ranged Trip. If you have Blood of Fiends, you can check out Reckless Shot.
