    I was wondering if anyone knew how the 'getting revealed when walking near players' works.

    Let's say I am at 90 stealth and have a 100% chance of stealthing. Will having 120 stealth increase my chances of staying hidden when stealthing near players? Or does it only depend on the % chance you have to stealth?

    Really like to know, any info appreciated!

    No..... stealthing is broken. Anyone who's an elf will reveal you within 4 tiles.... anyone whos an orange enemy will reveal you within 4 tiles anytime.... if you stand still anyone with fair to good detect will reveal you anywhere on screen.... some monsters will reveal you....

    Oh, don't forget, humans have an inferred 20 detect hidden too...

    I think it's different on Siege, but I really dunno.

    There is no passive detect on Siege... what-so-ever.

    IMHO, passive detect is pretty lame. It needs to be gotten rid of and hiding/stealth needs to be tweaked along with detect hidden...

    Stealthing is absolutely broken on Prod shards.

    No inherent ability should render 200 skill points of Hiding and Stealth useless.

    And the Jack of all Trades 20 Tracking should NEVER be enough to find a player with 200 skill points in Hide and Stealth. Period.
