    Current tracking info (in the process of being updated) claims that some necro forms are harder, or easier to track. I can't any documentation anywhere relating to this. Can anyone shed any light?

    I don't recall the forms being harder or easier to track. Most people don't track for monster forms, which is what you used to have to track for if a person was in wraith form, lich or horrid form.

    This is still true. Also if they are in a ninja form, you have to track for animals.

    Maybe they mean "Technically" harder? Because "Technically" it is harder to track a wraith because it can walk straight through you and spawn?

    IDK for sure though. :(

    In pub 25, changes were made to the tracking difficulty for various necromancy forms with wraith form supposedly being the hardest to track, but right after Pub 25 was implemented, I could still track people in wraith form with amazing regularity.

  6. How about elves versus humans/gargs?

    Does 'harder to track' also = harder to reveal when hidden?

    Put in another way, do hidden elves have a higher chance of remaining hidden from passive/active reveal?
