Tactics are special strategic bonuses which you select before the fight begins. Each Tactic can alter your character's power by increasing or decreasing different abilities, skills, or statistics. In order to activate a Tactic, you must first assign it to a Tactic set while out of combat.
After a Tactic has been added to a set, you can choose to switch between sets when you are out of combat, preparing for your next fight. Tactic sets allow you to customize your Tactics for your favorite play styles. Tactics are specific to the type of skills and abilities they affect, and come in three types:
- Career Tactics: Special bonuses to skills, abilities, and stats earned by your career.
- Renown Tactics: Special bonuses to RvR related skills and abilities.
- Adventuring Tactics: Special bonuses unlocked via the Tome of Knowledge which grant bonuses in player vs. monster combat only.
