    I was on Balhae (first regular shard besides Siege and Mugen to come back) a few minutes ago working on hiding and stealthing on a new character. When she is able to stealth but fails (has low 50s for hiding and 40 stealthing), she gets a message that says, "You cannot use this ability while mounted," followed immediately by the "You fail in your attempt to move unnoticed" message. Anyone else noticing this weird message too? The character is WALKING and doesn't even own a horse, let alone an ethie.

    I checked with another character with much higher hiding and stealthing skills on Legends but so far haven't been able to get a stealthing failure to see if she also gets the message about not being able to use the stealthing ability while mounted.

    I have noticed the same thing on Cats since the servers came back up.

    I was about to page a GM. I'm getting the same message for stealth and only if you activate it manually and not hide + walk.

    I'm getting the same thing on Cats. Both when I try to activate it manually, or when I use it passively while walking while hidden.
