    It seems like this forum won't be getting much use. I'd suggest that this be mergered with the thief forum. Although thieves and detectives have always had a hate hate relationship, it seems to me, the best detectives have also played thieves and visa versa. Until Mythic brings back grey status for thieves, the detective class will be dead. Too many other things to use skill points on unless you are a roleplayer.

    Detective and thief (pvp version) seems to go together better than thief and theif (crates or players who collect artifacts and rares).

    Just an idea...la

    And so it begins..

    Not that I disagree with you over the thief/detective issue, just the other skills on this forum will be lumped into a merge as well. If there were to be a merge, I'd be in favour of splitting off the detective skills from the others here.

    Herding/Camping are always going to be shuffled around & tacked onto whatever's left over.. *sigh*

    Just a quick question Rico, were you aware that this forum covered those other skills (Herding/Camping) or did the name just suggest Detective to you? I suspect they're being overlooked where they are because of the forum's title.

    I completely used the idea from the forum name. I really haven't delved into the threads in the forum, however I have seen a lot about healing :coco:.

    I'm just thinking about how the detective skills aren't really used anymore since the devs took our grey status away. Sure FE is nice for role playing, but other than that, there really is no need for it. I'd rather see theif and detective combined since they are usually played by the same people or at least lend to each others entertainment in-game...la

    Rico:

    I was at luna today (on siege) and there were some noobie thieves who where turning gray. Is that all you mean by grey status?

    Then does forensics have a better use on siege? ...if so that would sound like a fun template to play...


    EDIT: I think I've figured it out on my own. I had forgotten about "perma-gray," though I never really knew much about it.. It would be kind of cool if the forensics skill would allow you to just chase around and attack thieves all day.. Seems like there is going to be a spike of thefts in luna.

    LOL, yeah, I'm back on Siege.

    I do miss the perma grey as it was setup on the island. We had quite a few run arounds when you were on your detectives. Good times. I just don't understand why they won't bring it back. It's not like it was hard to get rid of if you wanted to do some safe banking...la

    I've been away so I don't know what this change means. But if I'm not mistaken, thieves still can't give murder counts so if Forensics tells a detective that a person is in the thieves guild - grey or not the detective can attack/kill him right? (As long as it's not in a guard zone of course.)

    Or am I missing something?

    Actually the forum list says:
    The new name being taken from the 'professions' title that goes with Detect Hidden.
