There is pretty nice tactical for operatives called Combat medic training, craftable by armstech - makes combat rez instant and Kolto Infusion castable while moving. Its not much, but can make healing on operative bit more movement friendly
Sorry to nitpick Riku but you copy pasted Shroud of the Shadow twice in the sin tank tacticals ommiting friend of the force. I also like the double mind trap tactical for flashpoints. As for ancient tome of wrath I still use it for large add packs and dxun has a lot of those. Yes the use of tacticals as a sin is very situational plus we do have the added bonus of able to swap them mid fight. As to regards to the gearing, you can do old nims with the gear you mentioned in your post saving yourself making two sets. However if you want to min max having two sets is unavoidable. For old content, I prefer unlettered lethal mods and sturinrss/immunity enhancements and a proficient stim and to save cost advanced augmens 45. List of plans for me is to try out hitting the first alacrity cap while keeping 45% absorb 65%shield with dark ward.
On PTS you would get DR per enemy hit but on live it's Absorb. No point in using it over Two Cloaks, Shroud of a Shadow, or - as a very situational one - Friend of the Force.
That's not true about two cloaks and Ancient tome of wrath.
At the moment YES, Two cloaks tactical is bugged. but when it is fixed. it is extremely useful for nightmare content.
For example for two cloaks 1: you'll be able to solo tank bestia because of that. 2: you'll be able to tank Tyrans MUCH easier since you get 2 sec shroud from stealth, the thundering blast is only 1.5 seconds.
3: At brontes you'll be able to do almost the entire fight much easier, especially the burn since you got more "shrouds" to use against orbs.
4: EC Firebrand, you can avoid 2 times the armour debuff when every1 else is on Stormcaller (when no shield phases anymore) - makes it for the healers MUCH easier too.
5: SnV warlords - Sunder (with the ability "The end") you can now avoid the big hits even more often.
6: If you ever manage to fail stealth res, you got another chance.
About Ancient tome of Wrath: The tactical is VERY useful at opses with many adds/multiple bosses. on 1 target its useless, but on 3-8.. you get +6 - +16% absorb. Which you still depend on shield, but with 65% shield, you're shielding quite alot which makes it useful.

I did some testing today to get the scaling caps for the lvl 70 8m NiM raids and MM FPs at 30 stacks of the Veteran Edge buff.
For my Tank (Sin):
MM FP: 7365
8m NiM: 8265
MM FP: 11570
8m NiM: 13060
MM FP: 2423
8m NiM: 2557
You can hit the power cap with 7 unlettered lethal mods and can use 2 warding mods in the other two slots. Assuming you are using 228 augments, which in contrast to the old 240s still have +96 tertiaries on them. Go high endurance on any of your gear pieces is useless. I'm using Bastion/Bulwark atm but it might be worthwhile to go for Immunity/Sturdiness to trade some of that excess Endurance for more Defense. Just to emphasize it again: this is for scaled PvE content only (i.e. everything besides Dxun)
For the sake of completeness here the numbers for my DPS (unoptimized gear, just random 306 dps pieces):
MM FP: 7257
8m NiM: 7337
MM FP: 9476
8m NiM: 10727
MM FP: 3661
8m NiM: 3837

I only ever had it bug out on me on trash. During boss fights I found no issues so far.
I agree on your assessment though that AToW can be situationally good with lots of adds. Like Sparky or Huntmaster(?)
AtoW at: 1: Calphayus (if you go to the side with many adds spawning) 2: DF - Draxus, grobby, Corruptor zero 3: Tfb - Dread guards (especially first phase - wither on 3 targets = 6% absorb, but Two cloak is also possibility) 4: Snv: Dashroode (wither on boss + adds) - titan 6 (on the adds) - Trasher (if you go up) 5: Dxun - everywhere except the 4 kephesses and Apex vanguard
About gods nim.. im not entirely sure since I havent cleared that yet. It DOESNT save your ass, but it helps you and the healers. the other tacticals are trash.
two cloak and Ancient tome of wrath are IMO the ones that will help the most.
I was thinking using Friend of the Force or Dread Guards for Force Field Explosions. Especially when running double Sin Tanks shrouding 4 members in total seems worth while. And you can swap Tacticals for phases 2 and 3,
Plus with the changes to Right price the new set Emergency Power would quite likely replace this set for PT tanks. Shame it only drops in ops though.
It has an INCREASED chance to drop in Dxun; it still can drop from everywhere.
Yes, what i meant to say its unavailable on the vendor and that I heard from multiple sources that they got their pieces from old nim ops more than dxun. And thats a shame because for sin and jugg the best tanking sets are freely available on the vendor.
Hey, what are the stats I should aim for as an operative healer? I've got my 6 piece set bonus, and 7th amplifier slot plus my tactical is good and my relics are almost the right ones. Finally reached full 306 through Starfighter 😁
