I took 2 levels of monk for mainly to get at level 2 the alternative class feature invisible fist and the feat Improved Trip as a bonus feat from the monk fighting style Passive Way. However, at level 1 the monk fighting style Passive Way gave me the all but useless feat Combat Expertise.
Is there a way to replace the feat Combat Expertise with another feat? I know becoming a dragonborn allows replacing a feat with a Draconic feat, but the DM won't allow my PC to become one.
Is there another method of changing the Combat Expertise bonus feat to another feat?
