    I was just chain meteor swarmed to death and NEVER reveled by meteor swarm and last target?

    Sad sad sad.

    I understand area affect spells but damn all there was was one meteor chasing me across the screen.

    ah well

    Honestly whether or not you are stealthed; if you are in a meteor's path, it would still get you.

    I think the problem is that the caster is still able to target the person directly with last target even though the person is stealthing.
     
  6. Hmmm....


    If the spell targeted an area before, but is now targeting the player...who moved from the original area of effect, then yes...I would think this is a bug. But if the player is still inside the area of effect, then no...it is as intended.

    I was moving at a good clip on foot when they hit me I was not standing still.

    Smoke bombs are not bugged, neither are invis potion you just dont like them.

    This is a BUG been reported MANY times and in no way should a caster be able to cast On ONE target running away without being able to see them.

    EQ ok, Wind ok, But not a spell that REQUIRES a visible target to hit.

    That is not PvP.

    Oh cmon now , surely we should make it easier for stealthers right ? After that I think we should make tamers deal more damage.

    meteor swarm doesn't require a target, you can cast it on the ground.

    Here's a tip: When you see the spell start casting...start walking away from the caster to avoid meteor showers. I get hit by red met showetrs all the time...they aren't specifically targetting you...la

    Sorry, but PvP is using your brain to either end up alive or defeating your enemy.

    Meteor swarm takes what, 2.5 seconds to cast or something near that? MOVE AWAY

    If you managed to get tracked by a human too you're not doing your job as a stealther. Use animal forms, get out of the way.

    Honestly??

    You dont need to target someone to cast meteor swarm, and they are most likely tracking you using the 20 kill from being human.

    There is a small chance that human tracking will be able to pick you up. Also if the enemy is a detector then most likely he already have you on track.

    Also without any cheat/hack/bug/exploit, if I have you on tracking you better animal form and forget about hiding and run away in straight line. Because my meteor swarm/chain lighting will be hitting you every single time and you can be stealthed all you want.

    Not everything peope do to you in pvp to defeat you is an exploit. Oh and this doesnt need fixing, stealthers + smoke bomb + animal form is already oh easy mode. If you played a ninja stealther right you should never be killed in small scale pvp, unless one of your enemies is a detect tracker. And if thats the case... you can animal form away, hit a server line to make him lose queue on you or simply recall or scared journey. Its really not that hard.
