    I have a question for all you detectors out there...

    How effective is it lower than GM?

    Can I get away with 60 points and have a decent chance of revealing? 70? 80? Is there a line?

    I know it depends upon the hide/stealth of the person I'm trying to detect vs the Detect and Int(?) I have?

    Thinking of a template change and trying to push everything I want into it... :)

    Thanks for any insight.

    The area effect range on detect hidden kind of sucks... even at GM.

    There's probabaly a success chance calculator on stratics somewhere...


    Also, even at GM, you almost have to click where your target is if they have high enough hiding/stealth.

    The magery spell 'reveal' works against stealthers at GM detect and magery... but you have to literally click the spot that the person is to be successful with the spell.

    I dunno... I think the skill is pretty fubar honestly... it comes in really handy at times, especially groups, but 99% of the time... its pretty useless.

    Oh, how true! But, you can add other area effect spells like Meteor Swarm,
    and Wither. Just damage enough and the hider is revealed.

    Conflag pots take a good bit of luck to hit someone that is moving.
    EQ is a joke if your target is not afk.
    Wither does not hit hidden people.
    Meteor swarm/tracking works well though...

    I agree with Calibretto, if you're gonna run detect, run GM detect.

    poison strike, meteor swarm, chain lightning, are probably the best...
