Introduction[edit]

  • Tactics are sorted by 'value', the "Craptics" (as the useless tactics are named in game) and tactics almost never used are at the bottom.
  • EDC chain tactics are low in rankings as they are not compatible with Gorgon Stare and Bull in a China Shop. EDC chain is outdated.
  • On general raids,the raid summoner can remove tactics by double-clicking on the tactic icons. The tactic summoner can remove his own.
  • The summoner of a raid should check the coherence of the tactics added on his raids, and remove those that don't fit.
  • The more accurate the tactics are, the less hits you will need to reach good loot levels, and the more raids you will be able to hit.
  • Most common errors:
    • Never waste a tactic slot with a "craptic" on it. If you don't have good tactics, other players will.
    • Don't mix EdC chain tactics and Bull or GS : less than 30% damage bonus in total, as the EdC tactics become "craptics".
    • Don't add Better to Receive on a tiered raid (gives only a common), or at the start of a hard raid ("Craptic" on that way).
    • Plan 10 and Plan 11 only work if both are on (individually they are useless), and on Huk-Kral raids only. But Plan's Chain (100%) is still not better than 2 good spikes (e.g. LF+Gambit is 60+45 = 105%).
    • Teachings of Wu is giving very bad reward on raids with high tiers (Subjugators, Weiqi, Pox/Temple...).
    • Don't put spike tactics on small/highly valuable raids such as Bashan, Warmaster, and Sentinel.
    • Dutch/Stonewall are only worth 60% if placed on a raid that is dual Mechanized/Ship such as Xenoxide, Colossa, Jalfrezi, Gedrocht, Genesis, and Void Master. Otherwise they are worth 20-40% and Gambit is a better choice at 45%.
    • For Pox/Temple/Uprising, Bull/GS are preferred, but only if tactics are arranged privately before going to World Chat. Otherwise, AW + (Gambit/LF/SUH) are better since these raids die too quickly for tactics to become settled; and too often end up with a poor combination such as Bull+Gambit.
    • Asymetric Warfare (AW) does not work on Plague or Purple Lion.
