Tweaked it a little. No Xp penalty which is nice. And you can take HS from level 21-25, so you don't have to wait til 37 to use the pots like a lot of Harper Scout builds. Feats aren't in any particular order

Been trawling the forums, decided to check up on archer builds, saw this....decided it could be improved a little.

First point - maybe it's just me, but I feel that when taking any dex-based class (definitely this) you should take blinding speed.
It's 50 rounds of uninterruptable, undispellable haste, twice per day. Save your bard spells for the other peons. (I would drop Armour Skin for that feat, since you won't miss the 2 ac as much as you would miss the 1 ab/ac from losing two Great Dex, and nothing else can really be dropped).

I was going to suggest listen over spot, but to be honest the chances of either making much difference outside of PvP are slim, and in general spot is the more useful option (because it renders enemies fully visible, not just partly). Clairaudience/Clairvoiance is a good spell because it gives a bonus to both - it's just a shame amplify only amplifies the caster's sense of hearing, not their other senses (though you would think if it did that they would develop a vulnerability to sound...a future spell change, perhaps?).

I know I write long posts, but you would think if something was important there would be a lot to say about it, no?
