    Moved from "Ask Devs" forum, as this is a much better place to get quick answers for those questions.

    I believe so ... i haven't tried in years ... I built up on jewels and such to tame a mount, then took everything off ... could still ride him, but could not really control him, would not listen to commands

    again, I believe that you need the natural skill to perform the specials ...

    i very well could be incorrect on one or both of these things ... if so i hope someone corrects me heh

    good luck!

    I'm pretty sure Xanth is right on both counts. You have to have real skill to use weapon specials (therefore no UBWS, etc.), and I think you can ride a mount that you can't control--but I'd make sure I stay on it, otherwise you'll end up losing it.

    UBWS works with weapon specials (but only with melee weapon skills) - Mage Weapon does not.

    You still have to have the 70 or 90 real weapon skill in ONE of the melee weapon skilss, and real tactics of the same amount, to use the special moves.
