    Default Can Tact Build Farm Storm Legion Mobs?

    Can you farm Storm Legion mobs with Tact build using Glacial and Infernal? Or the mobs hits too hard in those contents?

    Depends on your gear and level.

    I use 61 Tact/15 Bard to do SL world content, so I'd say yes.
    I'm usually wearing pvp gear and I have the upgraded conquest trinket.
    Even free cost too much now

    Yes, it can. It's not the best build for it, but it's in the top three.

    (And, to be clear, you wouldn't be using the same Tactician build you'd use for AoE DPS in dungeons and raids.)

    When you say farm I assume you mean grouping mobs together and AOEing them down for mats, questing or w/e. I'd say Muspel's soloing bladedancer is a better way to go because pure tactician is pretty squishy and won't last unless you kill the mobs before they kill you. That and it has terrible sustain.

    Tactman? Why not? Works fine for me. '-')a

    Been using that to solo major invasive species rifts too. No stupid purple bug mount yet, though.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish~

    "Works" is not the same as "optimal".

    YMMV. I was very squishy until I started getting full dungeon armor. It's only gotten better now that I have 4-5 raid pieces as well.

    But, as I've said before, I do miss Bladedancing.

    The Marcian is my most favourite solo spec, it's so good it's destroying any other solo spec around :

    Put the extra points in Collateral damage in MM, and then controlled fire I believe.

    This. Have zero issues using 61/15 and crafted gear to make short work of massive amounts of mobs.

    I'd make a quip about carrying 20 specs, each "optimal" for a narrow band of scenarios... (but then again, I guess we will soon be able to )

    There's optimal, and there's versatile.

    Personally speaking, optimizing for farming world mobs is so far away from things I'd spend time doing. But hey, whatever floats your boat.

    Don't be obtuse. You'll notice that I was talking about the Tactician soloing build that's "in the top three".

    I've been doing a Tact/Bard build with my rogue alt and she seems to be doing fine. Soloing she generally doesn't tend to die easy unless I do something really dumb. Have 3/3 Invigorated Soul, making Cadence give you health per tick, run the Curative Engine, which gives you health back when hit, and use Coda of Restoration and Curative Core when things start to get dire.

    You won't be a DPS machine unless your gear is really nice, but what you will have is great AoE, self heals, endurance and very little downtime if any. Just watch that aggro on the flamethrower, until you really get a handle on its reach you'll be pulling mobs that you don't intend.

    Which you then proceeded to exclude a variant thereof.

    Yes, to denote that said variant was not in the top three.
