The best way to describe the gift of tactics is the ability to work with other members of a team in such a way as to most efficiently achieve a goal. Thus far, only the orcs make use of this gift, as it would seem either impossible to learn, or the orcs are unwilling to teach. In any case, any human from Vahassa will tell you that the gift of tactics makes orcs a very difficult enemy to defeat. Anyone who was fought alongside an orc, meanwhile, will tell you that the gift of tactics seems to be of little benefit unless you are also an orc – or perhaps a fellow holder of the gift.
Tactics also seems to pervade the orc culture, which may suggest that it has even grander uses than simply on the battlefield. Certainly on the battlefield it is useful in giving your allies an advantage against their opponent. However, orcs have also learned to use tactics not only to provide support to one another, but to actually disadvantage and cripple their opponent through their teamwork.
