Strategies

  • Due to how their trait and their Reinforcement works, Tactician Vanguards won't do much against aerial enemies - with the slight exception of Muelsyse who is also able to place her Reinforcement on a ranged tile that can perform ranged attacks.
  • Take note where to summon the Reinforcement because it cannot be relocated unless the Tactician themselves is redeployed (or the Reinforcement's tile is made unavailable by any other means) and the Reinforcement cannot be healed through direct HP restoration.
  • When a Reinforcement is downed, they will stop attacking and blocking until they are respawned with full HP. A Tactician Vanguard can be much weaker in this phase.
  • A Reinforcement can only be placed within their master's range, and only on tiles that are available to them. If there are no available tiles, then a Tactician Vanguard can possibly lose out on value, but note that with the exception of Vigil's Skill-Vigil2.png Packleader's Gift, their skills can still be cast even if their Reinforcement is not deployed.
  • Due to the Reinforcement being placed after their master, it is common for enemies to target the Reinforcement instead of their master.
