    How did the no stealth experiment go? Anyone who used it as a staple in thier templates, change thier minds now?

    I know when I dropped stealth, even in PvM, my character was a lot stronger, and had a much better defence (except against raids/ganks), but the extra skills gave me a more active defence, which I enjoyed.

    I used to run stealth about 2 years ago, always on templates. Dropped it, and got wacked a few times right off the hop. I changed my gear, consumables, and skills, didnt put it back on, and was fine for 2 years. Odd time I ran it, but rare. Not worth the 175 IMO

    Seems when most people have stealth on, they rely on it to get them out of a situation, when you dont have it, you rely on your skills, and your player skill, which wins every time over tuck and run.

    I use stealth to shop and stock vendors and in champ spawns i use it to balance out my lag. So its essential to my play style.

    Well, I usually only run stealth when out shopping vendors or heading into the abyss. I took it off, it is still off, and didn't get pk'ed. Did see a few more new players out and about this week. All in all I wish it hiding and stealth only worked against mobs, or maybe only during limited visibility times and areas.

    Shopping is good to run it, or when scouting spawns to raid etc. Other then that, its not the most usefull skill IMO, unless a thief, or pure assasin who needs the element of suprise, or DS

    i agree with ya if your running a thief or pure assasin then stealth is part of your template but if your not running 1 of these 2 kinda templates, stealth is just gonna hold you back from learning a real template. simple as that. Example: which is a stronger mage? mage eval med mystic focus resist or mage eval med hiding stealth ninja

    yes the ninja may live longer not because your a stronger template its because your playing a passive template. but in an enclosed area the mystic mage gonna kill you everytime

    and for those that enjoy stealth in pvp when i run into this to much i like this template mage eval mystic focus resist and detect works great for watching stealthers run for there lives.

    I died four times in the duration.

    Normally, I die about once every two weeks.
    Mostly from monsters.

    One player ambush at a moongate, ambusher was just staying hiding in the moongate, this player used a GD pet.

    One player ambushed me as I left CoM fort carrying flag, this player was hidden.
    Later this same player used stealth to steal from TB castle... yes, this player used stealth. Name not to be posted.

    Other deaths was done by monsters which I could not hide from...Yes, I did not have either Hiding or Stealth on my template for the duration.

    I visited and operated normally in my usual terrain.

    I gained nothing from the experiement.

    easy for you faction guys that use monster ignore.

    for a non-pvper I use it to position myself. as tamer you dont want to lead with your body. you want your dragon to lead and so i constantly had to pre-cast invisible.

    anyhow it was different

    Too bad this wasnt realised by players years and years ago.

    As a tamer PvM, i found running disco/music at 120s, and tweaking my template a bit, was way more powerful, then trying to run stealth and watching drag eat things.
