Re: You feel as though you are being followed x 100
A few things that a burg can currently do to help with spam tracking
- Run with good stealth lvl (+6 or better). If creeps don't get the message that there is something hidden nearby then they are less likely to track in the first place.
- Assuming you aren't in the middle of a bunch of hostile NPCs or a creep raid, if you are tracked while in stealth you should immediately mount up and ride away for 10s then dismount, stealth, and change directions.
- Be paranoid: You only get the tracking message if a creep selects your name from the tracking window. They can keep the window up (for 30s?) and watch the distance from you in the window as they move around to zero in on you without actually tracking you. Then when they are a couple of meters away from you they can select you from the tracking window and attack. If you suspect there is more than one creep around that can track you then after you throw off the first track wait about 10s and mount up again. Then ride off in another direction for 10s, dismount, and restealth. Do this a couple of times even if you haven't received the tracking message.
- If you are a hobbit, consider slotting the hobbit stealth racial trait. Its a fairly long cooldown, but hobbit stealth in on a separate cooldown from burg stealth. This means that if you are tracked while in burg stealth, you can unstealth and immediately use hobbit stealth to lose the track (No 10s delay waiting on stealth cd.) When you get retracked drop the hobbit stealth and you can immediately go back into burg stealth to lose the next track. If you are tracked again... you should be somewhere else on the map by now or you are just asking to be killed.
- If you are near a cliff or bridge etc, hit safe fall BEFORE you hips. If you use safe fall after you hips then it will break your stealth. If you hit safe fall before you hips then you have 10s to get to the cliff and drop to safety before your safe fall wears off.
- Creeps cant track when they are in combat. Lead them on a merry chase through some hostile npcs and they cant track you until they run the npcs off (or kill them). Use this time to make your escape.
- Be aware of the types of situations where stealth will (or will not) save you. If you are out solo and run into a creep raid that knows you are around and starts tracking you, then will be lucky to get away even if all of your cds are up. UPSHOT - You don't need to be in that area by yourself! If there are other freeps around then you just need to be out of the area before all of the other freeps are dead and the raid decides to focus on finding stealthed targets.
- Sometimes you are just going to die. It's the moors. If you don't want to die you probably shouldn't be in the moors. (I personally play pretty aggressively and don't particularly worry about ratings, but I have noticed that prior to RoI and audacity my rating was usually somewhere between 1.4 and 1.6. Now its usually somewhere between 1.6 and 1.8. Upshot: Im getting more kills per death then I was before all these changes...)
