The synergy here is through the roof.
- Can somewhat neglect DEX and rely on Rage to carry us
- Demonic Spell Difficulty Classes (DC) are awful, making it a perfect fit for Enforce Vigor
- Aspect of Kalavakus is absolutely broken with Kineticist trips. I won’t spoil the interaction, but it’s insane and hilarious at the same time, while Balor both charges our DC further and buffs the team for free.
- The build really doesn’t need much in the way of Mythic feats, so it actually can take trips, Spell Penetration, and whatnot without hurting the bottom line.
Zen was taken in case you want to melee a bit and Perfect Strike is nice for that as well. Also, Lifebane can absolutely be cast on your Kinetic Blade for added hilarity.
Have fun with it while it lasts.

† For one level we take Monk. I’d recommend starting Neutral Evil, then edging to Lawful for a level, so you can Scroll of Atonement back to where you were.
