    So now any mage or other template using Conflagration Potions or Wither, Thunderstorm, Wildfire can just run around randomly with a Stealther's Health Bar out if they see him just ONCE....,

    .....and when the Health Bar turns white instead of grey(or in 2D, turns normal instead of grey) they start spamming their biggest, bestest AOE spell. Because it signifies the target is near. What's that, medieval brain-integrated GPS for Ninja?

    Especially mages have it easiest with Earthquake.
    What the heck, they "sense" the other guy in Stealth Mode? How do you explain this? Oh wait, you don't even HAVE to explain it because it's a game and it should be Balance > Realism EVEN if you could sense someone... in some.. Zen way.

    Can't Devs do anything right!?!

    Wow, someone is having a bad day in fel.

    Does seem strange that this happens by accident though. Maybe devs didn't mess up.

    I'm still trying to figure out the justification for, if you are tracking someone, and they die, you will still continue to track their ghost.

    :( Regardless of my mood at the time of the post... It indeed ruins it for stealthers..

    If it was done by mistake someone ought to have noticed by now. I don't remember this feature from before so it must have been a recent patch that messed things up...?

    The healthbar didn't used to show a different color for stealthers in the area - are you sure it is now?

    If it is, my bet is that it was unintentional, and is a bug. Sending in a bug report instead of announcing the problem so that more people can use it against you is probably the best course of action.

    Hmmmmm.... While logged on two accounts on two different computers and using the 2D client, I just checked on three different shards and cannot duplicate what you're reporting, S!ckLoveR. Two times I was in Fel and the other time in Trammel. I even had the stealthed character leave the area and come back to see if that changed anything. In all cases, the life bar I pulled for the stealthed character stayed gray the whole time she was hidden, even when standing on top of or next to the observing character. It also made no difference if the observing character and the stealther attacked each other. The stealther's life bar always stayed the normal gray color when she was hidden.
