invis

I have done everything I can. I mention in /g I have group fixed invis that's mana free. I mention it's instant. I say "Fixed invis incoming". I remind the one (there's always one) to make room for invis before they move and cast it again.

Someone ALWAYS clicks off my fixed invis that's already on them in favor of their own random invis of suicide.

You're a shadowknight. I just saw you look at shared camouflage in your window then click a 5 second CoS.

Hell, even casters, who I understand can cast their own fixed invis, about 50% of the time will stop moving, sit and mem their invis spell, break my invis by casting it and land theirs. (I generally recast mine as soon as they start casting at this point).

I had a p/u paladin click mine off and use cloudies one night (welcome to /ignore).

I think Clerics keep a list of fixed invis casters on a post-it stuck to their monitor, thankfully, I just wish they would add one that reminded them that invis was group only.

I love the AA, I just think the Icon should be a big fucking X with the buff title "Don't click this off, it's fixed duration" and when clicked off gives an emote "%T thinks today is a good day to die".

But that's just me...

I couldn't agree more. I mean, even if shared camo wasn't fixed, why the hell would you click it off only to waste a potion? Oh well, everytime someone clicks it off and dies I just laugh and make no effort to help keep them alive. Assholes..

Sadly enough this even happens with guildies. Group formed in Guild Hall. Buffs done, I cast Shared Camo and go through portal. Hit WoS and start running to MPG. I get just outside MPG and get a /tell "Hey Otzie, toss me another invis please". I ask "Where are you?" and get answered "At port in" :roll: "Hope you have good stun resist because you have to run to MPG without invis. I'll wait here in case I have to drag you for rez!"

I think it's annoying, too. I just wish that fixed invis of any kind could override the weak random drop invis. :idea:

I used to run around making sure ppl kept it on, but after a while, i cast it, and run, if they ask again they screwed up and have to pay for it. It's funny the ppl who learn and those who dont.

It's a nifty idea, but when people cast any spell (including their own invis) our invis drops :cry:

I always have someone click it off also, but most times when I tell them it's set duration they click off what they used and ask for it again. have one or two people that always ask for it now, or say in group they dont have to worry about invis since i've got it covered.

Funny thing is the other day I went around the guild hall casting harmony on everyone (it sticks in GH for some reason, unlike other detrimental spells) and then went to bed, the next morning i was checking guild chat and saw a cleric asking what this tranquility of the glade buff was....

Of course it is - you just need to sit for it to take effect.

Clerics are the one class I cut some slack, especially if they are buffing. I can respam that button every 7 seconds. I even respond to "invis pls" but if you burn a cloudy while I am standing there spamming the button I give up hehe.
