    Default Tactician range mechanics.

    Does Tactician mechanics benefit from the ranged weapon you have equipped? I'm curious as I just upgraded to the epic tank bow that has block but a much higher dps range on it than my pvp blue one.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    look at torrent tooltip with blue equipped, equip purple and compare. that doesnt directly answer the question, but should still get you an answer

    all tact attacks, not abilities, require ranged weapon, remove that and you cannot bolt, cb, or beam/torrent. and the only thing that is not effected by a range bonus from mm to 35m is torrents.

    yes.. Tact dps is mostly all oriented from the ranged weapon.

    That...doesn't really answer it in the context he was asking.
    He was referring to if the ranged weapon affected the damage.

    Answer would be, yes, torrents base themselves off AP i beleive

    That doesn't answer his question, either.

    He's asking if they scale off of ranged weapon DPS.

    This is correct, does anyone know if it scales off of weapon dps?

    Yes, Torrents scale off your ranged weapon.
