- This article is about tactics in a PvP context. For the warrior attribute of the same name, see Tactics.
Tactics in the context of PvP refers to the actions taken by players during a match in response to actions taken by the other players. This differentiates it from strategy, which is entirely carried out before the game based on the current metagame.
A good player must be both a competent tactician and a capable strategist.
Specific strategies and PvP tactics can be found in the State of the Game section of GuildWars.com. For those just joining the world of PvP please refer to the PvP Primer section for basic tactics and guidelines.
