Abstract: Let $ k$ be an algebraically closed field and $ A$ be a finite-dimensional associative basic $ k$-algebra of the form $ A=kQ/I$ where $ Q$ is a quiver without oriented cycles or double arrows and $ I$ is an admissible ideal of $ kQ$. We consider roots of the Tits form $ q_A$, in particular in the case where $ q_A$ is weakly non-negative. We prove that for any maximal omnipresent root $ v$ of $ q_A$, there exists an indecomposable $ A$-module $ X$ such that v=dim X. Moreover, if $ A$ is strongly simply connected, the existence of a maximal omnipresent root of $ q_A$ implies that $ A$ is tame of tilted type.
