So Im making a mix of a Paladin and a tamer type character, and was wondering what skills are important?

 

Ive been leveling: Swordsmanship, Chivalry (the spells in that white book are great!), taming, animal lore, and healing.

 

Should I be learning tactics for example?

 

Anything is useful!

I don't think either it will be effective.  A Paladin needs a weapon skill, healing, anatomy, tactics and chivalry.  I also have bushido.  Some would have another skill.  That fills out a paladin template.  A tamer uses taming, veterinary, and animal lore.  My tamer also has the magery skills (magery, eval intel, and meditation)

 

That is to many skills to be effective in one character class.  I just have two separate characters.

 

Hope helps,

Clextor

I agree with Clextor.

 

Paladin would need, idealy:

Chivarly

Weapon Skill

Tactics

Anatomy

Then Parry/Resist Spells/Healing(optional).  All depends if you're 120ing skills or not.

 

For tamer I'd say

 

Taming

Lore

Vet

Magery

 

Then your choice of Music/Peace or Music/Peace/Discord or Music/Discord or Eval Int/Meditation  Some sort of combination.  I've seen Mysticism used nicely with a tamer too, but you need to have Eval Int and Med for it to work well.

I agree with everyone that a Paladin/Tamer would be a cramped template. However, if you don't mind the paladin not being as strong as a 6-7 skill Paladin, you could do something like this:

 

Chivalry: 70

Weapon skill: 120

Tactics: 100

Parry: 90

Taming: 110

Veterinary: 120

Animal Lore: 110

 

You could top off some of those skills using Jewelry if you wish to be slightly better,

I think having a fighting skill, unless it's archery, is pointless with a tamer.  Your pet tanks, your pet takes the most damage.  Outside of casting spells to do additional damage, most of your attention is focused on healing your pet and keeping your pet alive as it will do the most damage.

 

I have three tamers.  2 bard tamers, 1 mage tamer.  The mage tamer spends a lot of time throwing healing spells and vetting the pet and has only occassions to toss a spell on the creature - like Melissandre if we are 2-3 tag teaming it i'm healing all three pets with magic and healing my own with vet as I go.  There'd be no time to fight and keep yourself alive in a fight like that.

 

I'm not sure how good Chiv is at healing a pet either.

Chivalry would be good to Remove Curse and Dispel Evil, for pets.
