Players can still override the Tactical Device to some degree while it is on. You can still chat freely, and if the device has not started attacking a monster, you can still command your character to harvest nearby crafting material nodes.

You can also manually select targets you want your character to use its macro’d skills on.

The Tactical Device automatically switches off when it is out of energy, or you can just click stop to turn the Tactical Device off.

Tactical Device Recharging

Once your Tactical Device has run out of energy, you will need to recharge it before you can use it again.

There are two ways to recharge your Tactical Device:

1.) Use a [Tactical Device Energiser] normally found in the Emporium. Restore 480 energy for each use. You need to use 10 of these to recharge the device to full.

2.) Go back to PMC HQ and head for the Tactical Device Recovery room and stand on any of the 2 elevated platforms. Recharging to full takes 8 hours. Your character must be logged in, standing on the platform for the Device to recharge. Leaving the platform or disconnecting from the game causes the recharging to stop.
