This skill helps determine how much damage is done with each successful strike. The higher it is, the more damage you do, and the quicker you can kill your opponent. I don't think there's a warrior out there who does not have this as a prime. The tactics skill is used to create a multiplier for damage. Take your tactics plus 50 and add your strength divided by 5 and divide the total by 100. This generates a modifier to the amount of damage you will do per hit.
While this still helps with damage, it does not assist the player with tactical knowledge in various situations. The entries below will hopefully help both new and existing players when hunting alone or in a group.
