stealth macro

Post by z3ppy »

Much more efficient macro:

If (SysMessage "you begin to move quietly.")
UseSkill Stealth
Pause 10.00sec
Else
If (SysMessage "you have hidden yourself well.")
UseSkill Stealth
Pause 10.00sec
Else
If (SysMessage "you fail in your attempt to move unnoticed.")
UseSkill Hiding
Pause 10.00sec
Else
UseSkill Hiding
Pause 10.00sec
End If

And for an even simpler one just use:

If (SysMessage "fail")
UseSkill Hiding
Pause 10.00sec
Else
UseSkill Stealth
Pause 10.00sec
End If
!loop

Just make sure you are hidden before you start the macro and let er go!

You can also add in an object while you are waiting on the skill cooldown. So say, herd a cat(or snoop a bag for dex) for 10 secs before it goes on to hide/stealth.

The above simplest macro works well as I GMed all my stealthers by it under two circumstances.

#1:You are a Grandmaster at Hiding
#2:You are not revealed by another player

If you fail to hide or are revealed you will have to hide again and restart macro. You will be happy to know though there are many obscure places that will work just fine. Just don't do it in the middle of the street or places of heavy traffic.

Remember to gradually add to AR in order to increase the difficulty to hasten gains.

Haha, yeah, I was thinking about this the other day and I realized I had gotten it backwards! It should be:

Used skill Stealth
If Sysmsg "quietly" (from "You begin to move quietly")
Pause 10000
Else
Use skill Hiding
Pause 10000
!loop

This way, if you get revealed it will rehide you

if sysmsg(hidden)

useskill hiding
end if
end if
pause 10s

i've come up with a macro that can be used when hiding is between 80 and 100.

useskill hiding
wait 10sec
if sysmsg "have hidden"
useskill stealth
wait 10sec
end if
loop

after you GM hiding, no need to wait 10 seconds each time though. so this one's only useful between 80-100 hiding.

I GM'd hiding first and then went to macro stealth, its not hard, just do as was mentioned and add some armor to yourself when you get in the high 80s, low 90s.

I just GMed stealing last night and am going to start on hiding/stealth today.

When you say "add armor", how heavy should the armor be at what levels? Does it matter? In 11 years I've never once had a character with stealth!

Me neither but I was inspired by some cA people. :lol:

Don't worry about the armor until like high 80s. I can't remember the AR you are aiming for, I wanna say like 10. I will double check my character.

Ok my skill is at 91.5 and AR is 12. I think I hit a brick wall at 90 and stopped gaining skilll. Added the armor and it went up quickly to 91.5.

GM Hiding, by just spamming hiding.
When GM, start stealth.
When stealth is 80.2, wear some studded leather and start stealthing again.

Kind of not what was asked, but ty for the reply. I don't have room for GM hiding and I'm aware of when to start wearing armor. I realize with 80 hiding I will not always succeed I'm fine with that. The point is with a macro set for stealth when I clearly have enough hiding to gain stealth, I woke up after 8 hours of macro to be stuck at 26.9, I was around 17 when I went to sleep. So it was gaining, but stopped.

I had about 10 skills turned down...maybe totaling around 50-60 skill points. I just went to the tailor, to try and gain any skill to think maybe I'm bugged and jar something loose...tailor gave me the red skill cap message...Having 50-60ish worth of skills turned down clearly is enough to gain 30ish tailoring...

I then turned down my last skill, wrestling which was at 33.3, giving me roughly 80 down turned skill points and bam.

In the time it took to type this I've went up .7 stealth...so something was clearly wrong.
