    Default Tactician uses?

    Other than for "fun", is tactician the least useful of the SL souls?

    Harb is the top dps spec for mages.
    Tempest gave warriors a ranged spec.
    Defilers are great in PvP and PvE.

    Other than the short-lived Tact-Bard build, is Tactician useful for anything at the end-game level?

    It's fun torrenting folks in PvP sub 50, but it sure seems pretty ... useless at 60?

    Just came back and wanted to see if anything was new and different ...

    Other than Phys/Tact hybrid, no not really.

    Volan. Lot of guides written by the first guilds to clear him mention something about having a 61 tact for it's raid damage reduction cd. Not really sure if people still do that.

    I personally have been using 61 tact on abominus for the last 4-5 months to trivialize calamity and add dps plus heals, and i use it on aky too face roll undertow and still ending the fight on like 28-29k deeps with like 6-7k hps..

    Its a very underated spec in my eyes

    Yeah, two encounters out of whole content. I haven't seen abom/aky yet and dont think majority of players have either. Sab will do until then.

    I use 58 Tact in almost every CQ. Rarely is there enough heals for me to play Sab. It's great for large scale PvP.

    Tactician is a useless soul, its not used for anything but leveling up, it used to have some bite, but instead of a small reduction, the community asked for it to be nerfed into the ground.

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

    I (like many people) paid for the tactician soul and I personally wasn't all that happy to see it "nerfed" to uselessness.

    Recently, I (like many people) also paid for the physician soul and darn it, from what I've heard the same thing is about to happen to it.

    As a CUSTOMER I'm very displeased by the lack of attention the tactician soul has gotten since the last string of nerfs. In my opinion, it's been an exercise in poor customer service.

    Why do you think Tact was destroyed beyond any usefulness? Was it because it was too OP in PvE, or because the minority of Rift playerbase flooded the forums QQ threads about how its broken and stuff.

    If you browse tru the last week of posts you will see the same story all over again.

    Its sad to see that the PvP community has such an impact on PvE usefulness of classes, in a game that PvP is soooo terribly done, not to mention that PvP community is what 10-20% of players?

    But I think thats the nature of all MMO's that classes are being destroyed because of their viability in PvP without any regards to what it will do to it in PvE.

    According to some folks, Physician is too easy to play, and should heal for less than the other healers.

    Physician is harder to play than any other rogue spec!
