Is Detect Hidden worth training or is it still worthless?

    Detect Hidden is worse now than it ever was.
    Blues can no longer reveal other blues. A little bit of Trammel sneaks in again.
    Even if you're trying to reveal enemy faction, Blue to Blue just doesn't work.
    If you do manage to reveal someone though, they cannot hide or smoke bomb for 10 seconds. They can still cast invisibility.

    Aye, but you being red, I think there is a 100% chance to reveal you now. ( maybe based on skill like hiding 80.0 skill = 80% chance, not sure )

    Conflag pots aren't as useful anymore, considering if you reveal someone with them, they can instantly re-hide or smoke bomb. It still might be nice to use as a tracking / trapping device, especially in narrow passageways.

    The Thief is getting the short end of the stick in all of this, since they are usually blue and can't reveal their victims, which are usually blue.
