Update 4/30: Added some videos in the Suggestion Box. If anyone has videos of them playing using the AP/Tactics build with or without instructions I would love to see them.

May I ask a question, because I have recently started a Vanguard(not very know with class)

Can High Friction Bolts from Assault Spec tree stack with Focused impact from Tactics tree ? - which means High impact bolt ignores 90% of enemies armor ?

Quick Question on this -- I'm about to hit 50 on my vanguard and will be primarily running tactics as dps for ops and hard modes. Is this spec viable to switch cells and off tank if the need arises?

They do, and it's why the 1/22/18 Hybrid is viable and it's why Pyro's HiB's hit so hard. You have to be in CGC for it to be at 90 percent, but yes they do stack.

As viable as Pyro is, Switching cells is just fine, your healer will need to work harder, but yes you can switch and offtank if needed.

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop? I think they both may be answered at the same time ;p
