I'd like to hear opinions on the build below for pvp and pve. I will be playing as a merc who will also be protecting players, but I want to have a build that is also good at pve. Opinions?

I won't lie I do like the fact that it has 11 combos

Good news is that tree works, just swap out Archery for finesse or warfare. < - Viable

Bad news is for Archery to work: you need finesse. So, you'd have to swap out protection (keep devotion) for finesse. < - viable

You can play it in PvE but what you want to do in pve tank, offtank or more dmg?

Question, why does Archery need Finesse?

replace Archery with Necromancy, dress easy armor, and everything at you will be good. I play so http://aa.mail.ru/calculator#2_3_10:14810_12759_10135_10201_10655_14 _102_40_10645_12048_10375_18757_10372_30_5_31_97_1 1379_10547_10720_16004_14929_24

Finesse gives useful skills for archery. You won't be at full power without it, but I guess if you want to tank/damage hybrid this build can work. I personally haven't seen it in action so, who knows.

Question, why does Archery need Finesse?

The trees work together like bread and butter. Many of their abilities combo with each other, like shock arrow and plunge, not to mention you can wear medium armour which is useful for both trees. Even though ArcheAge promotes flexibility in builds, these two trees on their own will just never be as good as they will be together.

Which is kinda a shame in a way, I don't like the idea that someone almost has to choose one tree with the other even though that might not be the class they want to play.

i suggest this if u want to continue on the knight :

http://arche-base.com/builds/generator#6.10.3/JaHv3U7KJrP

Skills order:

survival instinct,sharpened arrow,curse and blessing,target pursuer,shock bleed arrows,anckle for snear him,then shield strike,shield bash,scream of pain,flowing life for heal u a bit before taking damage,because u dont have any other close skills dps,
and hopes that ur arrow skills are up :P

so yes u need maybe the calling tree,for get a better dps ranged and also a stun,devotion tree is more for Pve leveling as u have 10/12 protection,u dont need it.

i would suggest this :

http://arche-base.com/builds/generator#6.8.3/JaHvzPvKZTr

and use plunge when the opponent get too close,follow with perforation,and backflip for after that use sharpened arrow and quickshot or some other arrows skills.in plus u have a lot of buffs :

survival instincts main ranged buff,eagle claw buff of dps ranged,sharpened arrow dps ranged buff (another one lol)target pursuer a disbuffing,fast movement (agility increase not only avoiding,increase the critical a bit),vitality increase the amount of life,whisper of life that restore u a bit,blockage that increase speed of attacks and block for 20 sec,scream of life that use ur anger for heal u up.

and scream of pain for disbuffing,if he gets too close.

No, still the same, archer is no archer without finesse.
Firstly, you got ankle debuff, which is not only complete ♥♥♥♥, but you dont have the backflip from finesse, nor teleport from will, to compensate the lack of distance after u cast it.
Pnemonition is very very late game skill, which requires set with evasion + costume, only then you can use it effectively.
You dont have the archery passive, so you cant be true archer.

I think that you just need to change archery tree into sorcery or occultism.
