Back when I wrote this guide you could keep casting a debuff (weaken, clumsy, feeble) on a person to disrupt spells/recalls. Now you must use harm in the same fashion for the most part. But the premise is still the same.

Ah gotcha. I thought it was like a glitch or something. Btw, I saw you around WBB the other day.

Record a macro to drag these by type and drop them to your relative location (0,0).
Is this still possible to do?
MatronDeWinter wrote:7.) Magic Trapped Pouches:
Set these on use-once and DO make a macro, keep track of how many you use and when your down to your last one immediately cast magic-trap after using it. This is not only good for getting un-para'd, it can also be the greatest tool for bandaid users. Pop one of these, take 1 damage, and then use a bandaid before you think you will take damage to reduce your wait time. You can also use a Gstr potion for this effect initially.
Would you advise for or against a macro that dbl clicks pouch, then casts magic trap on it directly after?



bump cause this is a great read

The table trick will no longer work. Footstools will though instead.

For the pouches, I'd advise carrying between 3 and 10 of them, depending on what situations you expect to find yourself in. 3 is usually plenty if you're just going to recall ASAP in the face of an attacking player or players. If you're fighting people though, you'll want at least 5.

You can also cast magic arrow faster than they can re-paralyze you, so you can always magic arrow yourself too, if you're without pouches and getting chain-paralyzed.

Great post - just wondering where Invis/Reflect/Teleport Clothes & Jewelery are likely to spawn / are sold?

They never seem to drop for me :(

Drops are random as far as I know. Run around the Yew Bank area there should be plenty of vendors there selling reflect. You can also regularly check the trade forums where people often post selling exactly what you seek. If you really want make a 'want to buy' thread but I suspect those who will reply might want to gouge you on the price so it is probably better to wait for a seller or browse in game.
