    That is a can of worms..

    Of course not EVERYONE does, but alas, it will seem like everyone does because its one of those skills that is normally accompanied by tamers, and tamers get magnified cause we hate them

    No, neither of my characters do, but one is human so she can hide using JoaT if she's very lucky and tries hard enough.

    Nope, but it is a common skill to have. Even in the guardzones you are not totally safe so it's nice to be able to disappear before going afk for a minute or two.

    When you are new, usually low on hit points and lightly armoured, an explosion and some other spell can take you down. The person casting it may be virtually naked apart from a few regs so even if he is guard whacked he will not be risking anything. Similarly, if you go afk for a few minutes they could use said person to throw a poisoned shuriken at you.

    Never go afk with anything of great value. Don't carry anything you can't afford to lose, especially in Luna. Even at home, hide before going afk.

    You're a stealth tamer right? You do not even use a shown char in pvp do you? STFU. Get it right we are too busy ganking with our 167 people in vent to bother with hiding!

    My one char with hiding soooo compares to 80% of your guild being stealthers.

    Not my fault no one wants to play with you. We are a big guild and each of us have at least 2 accounts; I have access to 6 myself, 2 of which are stealthers, the other 4 are shown pvp chars. guess which ones I pvp on 90 percent of the time? Anyway just clarifying the talking points. The rival pvpers, FIRM/KoC, gripe about the ganks not the stealthers:). Anyone from the JSV alliance griping about stealthers is pretty laughable.....

    All of my own characters here on Siege can hide quite well but only one is a stealthing ninja.

    There are other reasons that some players here may utilise the hiding skill besides trying to hide from others of course. For myself I really did not give a rip if others here kill my chrs. since most of my chrs. are crafter templates save for one.

    BUT...............early on I learned that Siege is the ONLY shard with the active perma dark wisps that always were fryin my newbie chrs. here. When I first got here more of those killed me than any other players. I had to learn where all they spawned on Siege normally or often...but sure as hell went hiding fast as I could whenever I seen those dark wisps. :) They oft still fried my chrs. but...aye not everyone hides just to hide from others...some maybe just have it to ......observe others...or to hide from some spawn that they just do not like at all..........Siege specific, like dark wisps. :)


    Anyway all of my chrs. have assorted hide skill but only one can stand right next to pks and be unseen.........she does not pk nor pvp...just has fun observing everyone slaughtering everyone sight unseen...often..stealthin ninja just for comic relief to sometimes be right under someones butt nearly... and be literally unseen or undetected most of the time.. silent motion so to speak.
     
  18. hehehi met some of the nice dark wisp near trinsic moongate !!!

    ok next stupid question whats up with the pally items whats my chiv have to be to use them ?

    What you are asking about is our Faction Dye. If you are in the good factions (COM or TB) you can dye your items a whitish color (only usable by pallidans). Now if your evil (SL or Minax) you can dye your stuff a black color (only usable by evils). To dye you must have enough life force, which is farmed by killing the monsters opposite your faction or simply go out and kill the opposing faction players.
