    Chameleon spell in pvp duels

    Post by Wisp on Mon Mar 26, 2012 8:56 pm

    So let's say i'm disguised as a piece of scenery. If i cast a spell, at what point do i become undisguised; at the start of the cast or before? If i'm 2-handing a moonlight greatsword and I use the R2, same question.

    Also, any ideas/advice for general chameleon pvp strategy

    Not sure on the details of what you are asking, but if your using chameleon to surprise attack your target i wouldnt call it a duel....

    Not for surprise attacks. Best example i've seen was someone casting HCSM, casting chameleon when opponent dodged to break lock-on then hitting with a big sweeping weapon (i forget which)

    I've seen people casting Great Combustion when they were getting near. It was actually a duel. In the middle of it, he cast Chameleon, and when the other player got too close, he cast great combustion.

    Kinda a cool idea. Maybe case CSS, that one casts fast. Fire surge too.

    It isn't designed to hide yourself from your opponent. It is designed to hide your next attack. WoG might work well too.

    That was one of the major reasons I was gonna try an int build when I get to. I've seen videos where this guy uses chameleon so well mid-fight. It can be used to hide spear pokes, great combustion, some spell casting time and most important of all, breaking lock-on.

    Can you switch weapons without revealing your self? Or switch to/from 2-handed mode. (at the moment i'm using a faith character so i can't test it myself)

    Doesn't it also prevent backstabs? At least I've never seen someone get backstabbed while disguised - possibly because you can't find their back, but it may also be an actual effect.

    Don't know about the immunity but I've watched Infamous' videos where he uses chameleon to ambush poor questers and it breaks as soon as the cast starts.

    I'm interested about the backstabs too. I've run into quite a few people who use it and then cast spells/miracles very effectively.

    i'm considering using this or soulmass on a mlgs build with soulspear.. i'd LIKE to test it but idk how effective turning into a pot in front of burg invaders and slowly walking away will be..

    the target lock break seems handy just to throw opponents rolling away off.

    Hello all, i have used chameleon a lot in pvp and no you can still get back stabbed in it (i have). honestly unless your hiding from people chameleon i dont think is worth it.

    The whole point to the spell in combat is it makes your opponent untarget you and it hides the very beggining of your spells and attacks. if you dont have 45 dex you leave yourself very open when using it, and your "suprise" spells are too slow to be a suprise.

    It is a very effective pvp spell ithough
