    Sneaky Tactics

    Post by Heroez Blade on Mon Jul 30, 2012 10:52 am

    Has anybody ever tried using the chameleon spell whenever you get invaded? I think it would be really funny to use it and follow invaders around or pop out when they get close to you. I can just imagine how some people would react if they don't see it coming. It would be a humorous way of pvp, but it would probably get old quickly. What do you guys think of this, in terms of just messing around?

    Lol I always think its funny when I invade a host that uses chameleon to hide....but to a well trained Darkwraith such as myself I can spot the difference a mile away silly

    I know where everything is. So even in the dark of the Tomb I can easily spot an out of place skull.

    .....it still gets tried though, quite often.

    Also the spell makes it's own unique sound, so it basically announces to invaders; "look for whatever the chameleon spell makes one into here!"

    Ya for the experienced vader its only a matter of time as lextune stated....you get to know every pot and item so you know when somethings outta place and the colour is waaaaaay diff also the sound is a dead give away!

    I was gravelording sl 20 lastnight in the Depths and had a few SOV's try to sneak up on me with cham...and had a few that snuck in as slugs or whatever and sat there and watched me duel a few lol!!

    One time for fun I decided to hide in the forest using chameleon wearing nothing but a sack and see how long it would take the forest hunters/darkwraiths to find me. I hid near where the eastern armor was without killing the ents.
    Did it work? Three invaders killed themselves and one BC'ed out! I was tempted send them messages like "Pssst! I'm over here!" or something like that, but before I could someone found out where I was and chain BS'ed me to death. I was laughing like crazy when they would run right past me without knowing I was there the entire time!

    It's funny to use Chameleon and then pop out real quick with a "Well! What Is It!"

    Its not too effective, some places are better than others. Its better for phantoms (of any color) I feel. It doesn't hide you better, but that glow always is a eye catcher, and Camo can remove that glow.

    I see you guys like to have some fun with this to. Even if it might be a give away to experienced players it is still funny to change up your playing style and take a break from all the head on fighting.

    Ya man I agree 100% I am pretty sick of taking the game serious I am all about messing around at low sl's and having fun....if someone popped out of a chameleon and did a 'Well what is it' like damage said I would 'look skyward' and drop the dude a slab or something and BC out out just cuz he made me laugh!

    It is fun to mess around, but i am not really a low sl player. I prefer higher levels just incase i run into some hard fights. I guess i could try more low level pvping just to get some practice and possibly mess with people.

    When I get my PVR I'm going to make a montage with what I consider good PvP and goofing around for laughs. Stuff like the Chameleon Well What Is It, or parrying and then doing the Point Up gesture instead of riposting. I think that kind of thing is funny.

    I actually accidentally killed a very low level in the burg like this once Hero. I invaded as a DM, I was trying to get matches with guilty high level players, but invaded way to low. I realize this when he hit me for around 40 damage on a hit. So I popped chameleon around a corner, and just followed him around. He was very scared the whole time, trying to find me knowing I could kill him in one hit. Eventually I got up to the Taurus area, past the flaming barrel. So I waited there, and equipped two DGM's, BK Boar Helm, Smough's rest. Then when he got up he saw the barrel and got confused, when I did the point gesture breaking out of it. He ran away, rolled instantly and just ran right off the cliff he got so scared. I didn't mean to actually kill him, but damn was it hilarious.

    My favorite use of Chameleon is to parry people.

    Someone thinks he's clever and can see through my disguise? He'll obviously attack, and I surprise him with a parry!

    I love to do this when I invade in Lost Izalith, because you transform into one of the mobs (the orange fire-jabbas). Only problem is the person you invaded can't lock-on to you when you're chameleoned, so it kind of gives my disguise away... but that's better since I'm planning on parrying them anyways!

    That's why you should always kick a pot, or as I do, dead angle the pot haha.

    Yes, yes you should! But don't try kicking it with a rapier or a curved sword equipped, because I'll parry that. silly

    I always hate when I forget I have one equipped and try to kick, usually I don't get parried since most players don't parry that well, but when it does happen I just feel like a clutz.

    Once, in the Depths, near the water cascade. I ended up standing around for almost twenty minutes, waiting for the Invader to cotton on where I was. big grin

    I think it would be a funny video challenge to see how long someone could follow a player without them noticing, while camouflaged using chameleon. It could be like an old cartoon where a person in a barrel gets closer and closer while the other person keeps searching. It could have some cheesy rinky dink music as a soundtrack.

    psh why hide? Chameleon is best used out of place and it's great being hyper-obvious about it.
