Before Combat Tartuk casts shield as soon as he knows he'll be meeting with the PCs or hears the commotion of approaching kobolds. He casts unseen servant every day as well.
During Combat Tartuk uses his wand and cause fear against enemies unless forced into melee, in which case he uses Arcane Strike to increase damage done with his sickle (this damage bonus is included in the stats above).
Morale Tartuk fights to the death, almost as if on some level he seeks it.
