The feats focus on accuracy (staff expertise, superior implement proficiency (accurate staff), impending victory, and coordinated explosion), control (unseen dread, world serpent's grasp, and psychic lock), defense (unarmored agility, improved defenses, body and mind, epic fortitude, epic reflexes, and epic will), and stealth (secret stride and untraceable).

The unseen dread feat works really well with the build's focus on invisibility and stealth. The world serpent's grasp feat combos up nicely with some of the build's disciplines that slow (e.g. summon thought warrior and phantom burden), but not others (e.g. static mote and void shard). The defensive feats and the implement focus (staff) feat synergize with the daily summoning disciplines to create robust and threatening creatures.
