Yes, tactics lower their aim value and are useless all by itself. Dodging makes your opponent miss you and for maximum benefit you need both. My advice is to pump neither. If you plan on building, any pure dueler will beat you so you will just be wasting points.
this may sound like a dumb question(not even sure if this is where it goes) but does the town mortician have to be appointed? I have a worker just joined my town and he is a worker class mortician, does he automatically become the towns mortician?
No. The town mortician is a building that you only need to build 1 level and is all done. In that building when you access it, is all the dueling history of the town: duels won or lost, passed out opponents or members and the best duelers (of the town and of opposing towns).
I'm new, and just joined a town. Part of the reson is so I can get discounts in the general store for the items I need to get going in the game. The price before and after I joined my town is no different. I thought you got a discount in the store when you joined a town. I clicked the signpost and went to the town first. Am I missing something?
Yes, I made sure I walked there first (even though I had just prayed there as well.) I guess I was expecting to get the sale price that's displayed, but I didn't. If a town member doesn't get the sale price, then who does?
(Sorry, this is has probably been addressed in the forums somewhere, but I couldn't find it.)
Town Members get the sales price, if you had happened to just join and didn't see a price change in the town's shops you should refresh the page.(F5) and you should see the correct prices.
If the prices are still incorrect, make sure you're at the correct town, lots of towns have similar names now. Click the Town Button on the bottom left where the chat is. It's the Second button in from Left to Right. That should bring you to your town on the map, click it and see if the prices have changed for you.
For some reason the prices are still incorrect, try clearing your cache, or do a Hard Refresh (Ctrl + F5). If the problems still persist and you have waited more than a day or two while doing everything I mentioned above then you should probably put in a in-game support ticket.
(All of this is assuming you knew what the without a town prices were, I'll give an Example just in case. Fancy Felt Hat without a town, cost $15,600. With a Town it costs $3,900. Indian Feather Hat Without a Town $12,800 with a town it costs $3200. The prices for items are 4 times more if you do not have a town)
