I saw 1 post a while ago mention that they were fantastic in nightmare runs, but I don't know why. I'd like to level my tactics vanguard as a dps, but i don't want to be crippled to half damage of every other dps

and plasmatech vanguard is fine too

PT performs poorly on dummies, but they're pretty much gods in most 'real' fights.

PT's have multiple ways where taking damage makes you deal damage, which all disappear on dummy parses. They are very capable in boss fights.

If you want fight performance look at fight parses.
The dummy parse is nice to cmpare your ability to play the class,but that is all.
On starparse you can also check operation parses for every single boss and pt is the top dps in like 80%+ of the time

Nice. Hard numbers that validate what I've heard in passing
