I5 Stealth Discussion
Look, it’s right in the description of the change:
Basic Stealth Powers (Pools, temp powers, and Powers not in a Defense set like Blaster Cloaking Device, Controller Illusion Invisibilities):
If you Attack, or are Hit – Critters see you. You loose half your defense buff (and your PvP stealth) for 10 seconds. Your translucency is reduced to indicate this change.
If you Attack, or are Hit – All enemies will see you. You loose half your defense buff. Your translucency is reduced to indicate this change.
Primary Stealth Powers (Those in a defense set like Dark Armor/Cloak of Darkness, Dark Miasma/Shadow Fall, Storm Summoning/Steamy Mist, Warshade/Shadow Cloak)
If you Attack, or are Hit – Critters see you. (You loose your PvP stealth for 10 seconds). Your translucency is reduced to indicate this change. No Defense is Suppressed
Yeah, so… I wasn’t wrong.
Also, note that Group Invis from the Controller group (And bestow Invis from the Stealth group). ALSO drop all ‘aggro reduction’ ability as soon as you attack, AND the defense from the cuts by half.
Suck. Suck. Suck.
And hey… even with Invis… all you need is one guy with Perception — ONE GUY — to see you and hit you, and the Invis drops for EVERYONE in range.
Guess they don’t want anyone stealthing missions at all.
Stealthy heroes don’t fit the profile?
What crap. Crap put into play to control its use in PvP, which I don’t even do.
What is the point of having defense from a power if that defense is going to only work when no one is firing at you? Or ceases to work the moment you are fired upon or attack?
Sorry, but that’s just stupid.
