Hello community, I'm trying to build a hybrid between a greatblade dex footfighter and mounted archer. I'm flustered and need some advice on my current action skill setup.. I don't have enough action skills to fit all of the necessary components, can you please give me recommendations what I should min/max/add/remove... thanks in advance :^)

foot fighter stuff
blocking 100
swords 100
combat techniques 100
defensive stance 100
aggressive stance 100
sprinting 100
armor training 100
combat manouvering 100
endurance 100
active regeneration 100
anatomy 100

mounted archery stuff
archery 100
controlled riding 100
mounted archery 100
controlled aiming 100

taming 50 (allows taming of all horse types)
creature control 16 (allows use of level 125 horses with 100 mammalia lore)

Im not a footie but I just tried it with mortal data to see what's possible. Don't waste your points in taming, it doesn't give you any "real stats" and that's what you should use your primary action points on imo.
Also since your a footfighter I highly recommend at least some heavy armor training to be able to wear the best armor you can buy. I'd probably take away active regeneration since you're gonna be using bandages anyway and i don't think it's really that strong. I'm not sure about Endurance.I know it's good but you gotta sacrifice something if you want controlled aiming.
The other thing is, if you want to be a "perfect mounted archer+ footie" you NEED a trinket with some primary skillpoints on it or you just won't have enough points. Also correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think you need mounted archery at 100 to be effective :) Hope some more experienced footies will notice this post. [EDIT] also combat techniques is a secondary so there's 100 points for you xD

I am trying to do something similar. I dont think it is possible to be a tamer and a footfighter and a mounter archer imo unless you happy with many skills less than 100. The taming skill points are needed for the duel flighting build. I am reading that controlled aiming is not in the game at present so a waste of skill point - can anyone confirm?

no way to fit all that stuff. For a viable footie/MA you will need.
Blocking 100
Sprinting 100
Controlled riding 100
Combat maneuvering 100
Armour training 100
Endurance 100
Anatomy 100
Archery 100
Mounted archery 100
Swords 100
Taming 50
Creature control 30
Heavy armour training 50

You should be able to fit all these into your build and have a few extra points as long as you have high dex, con and strength (for the bonuses).

Aiming technique and controlled Aiming are really not worth 200 skill points if you are planning on foot fighting. Usually those are for wheelchair builds. Most MAs /footie builds do not have these.

Offensive/def stance are nice to have but not mandatory. Wearing good armour/weapons will do the same.

Active regen is useless. Get passive instead.
Like Ratz said, if you can do without taming , and just buy your horses, you can use those points for better skills. However, MAs lose lots of horses especially when you are making a build that will most likely finish the fight on foot. Being able to tame is super handy.
