    Did you notice the swordsman Captain is switching between three weapons and looks to go berserk? He uses a daisho, no-dachi, and paladin sword.

    Did they increase the tracking range and improve the navigation around obstacles?

    Yeah, I noticed the switching of weapons... it's pretty freaking awesome.

    No, and No. disarm doesn't work on them unfortunately (they parry sooooo much), and their weapons are blessed so not steal-able.

    Although you might be-able to steal the arrows from the archers... except when they run out of arrows by shooting their bow, they generate 20 more... so not sure if stealing would actually stop the arrow generation or not.

    Tried to steal from a red archer captain and couldn't...unless I had my targeting messed up. Was hoping I could steal artifacts.

    I have to say I think those captains are tracing my steps. I went around a building and opened a door then took a couple steps in then came out and kept leading away.

    The captain followed my every move. Not sure if he went inside to have a look and smell the air for my lavender aroma or if there was a trace on my actions. Maybe they approach a door so they open it and run a search algorithm inside that building for my known location?

    Ya I noticed the Swordsman has the same range as my archer with a crossbow. Or I just forgot what 1990s lag was like.

    I do wish they would have added in the ability for us to disarm/steal. Little fun nods to thieves.

    I don't mean to be a kill joy, but we've had weapon switching since the old Paladins outside Delucia! A more modern example for you, just go and attack a samurai. Nothing like getting LS armor ignored with a halberd for around 50 damage. The use of the paladin sword is new, though :).

    Oh. I had never noticed or cared in the past I guess.

    Thanks for clarifying that. Wonder if the tracking is not new either. It seemed enhanced to me.

    There has been little reason to kill samurais outside of obtaining their books! lol...we've been pushed against the ninjas (death strike) quite a bit more :p. But I would lean on saying the tracking could be new. We've had stealthers before, but they never had a para shot I don't think (although dream wraiths have a para effect, at the least ;P).
