View Full Version : So... fear snares?

Fear kiting specs with a necro and rogue in oasis right now, and the necro doesn't need to use any darkness spell at all. Fear by itself slows the specs down MORE than enough for the pet to stay right on them and enough that my rogue only misses a little bit of melee/backstabs because of out-of-range issues.

Clinging darkness + fear makes specs as slow as dooming + fear used to.

Spectres have always been a lil slow. It is not necessary to have SoW to outrun them, normally.

I know they were on live. On here, I don't think they are. But regardless, this is different.

The necro I was with could pull with clinging darkness and the spectres would chase him so fast that I couldn't hope to land backstabs at all or get in more than a few melee hits on them. But as soon as they were feared, they were moving along at a snails pace.

Like I said, a clinging + feared spectre now moves as slowly as a dooming + fear spectre did when I played a necro in the past on this server.
