How to Horse Archer and ranged in general (need halp)

So for starters, I'm trying new things/builds and trying to move away from polearm easy mode, however I have no fucking clue what I'm doing. I created a character for every "class" in the game and I'm usually just pissing about and switching characters to try everything, but I'm struggling with ranged the most.

With the damage and speed nerfs, what is a good Horse archer build? Also, how does one aim on horseback? I'm unsure if I need to aim directly on the target, lead the target, or aim slightly behind the target since I'm galloping. I imagine the easiest answer is to simply slow down or stop, but that simply doesn't look cool.

Also if someone can tell me how to aim a crossbow/bow/throwing on foot as well that would be great. I've found it's harder to hit people who don't know I'm aiming at them, so advice on aiming at people who are running perpendicular to me would be lit.

On the grand scale of Dwarven global threat assessment, Acre is currently ranked pretty low. Just slightly below Yoshis and factions that no longer exist.

Horse Archer?

task manager -> programs and installations -> cRPG -> uninstall
I am probably the only lancer that always charges up front

well I wouldn't encourage the playing of Horse Archer, but yea, you gotta aim slightly behind them if you're galloping past to make up for the arrows movement in the forward direction. as for any ranged practice, one of the best ways to get used to compensating for drop, lead, etc is to play DTV where you can get the basics mastered, and then harder shots against dodging players you'll learn to deal with in time I suppose

Hmm, yes. Polearm easy. Agreed. HA good for low pop, good for the Community. Ranged BIG skill ceiling, melee only small ceiling.
You cant just diss cRPG on ModDB and expect to get away with it.
