Miat's got reined in pretty quickly in the early days when it gained it's reputation. ZOS tightened up their API to limit what it can do. The, perhaps, most significant and controversial thing it still does is that sound when you get attacked by a new player. Not only does that help with ganks, it also alerts you when you are suddenly being focused by multiple players, as it goes "ding, ding, ding". Your cue to block or get out of there.@fred4 - does Miat's still work?
That is in the eye of the beholder. Personally I think it's just part of the landscape on PC with addons.And is it cheating...???
Those skills are not exactly gank protection. Radiant Magelight gives passive protection against some types of ganks, as does the Sea Serpent mythic. Using the detection skills while turning a flag, while you are at full resources and have nothing else to do, is also a good idea, although I usually just keep block up. Those skills are expensive. I wouldn't cast Expert Hunter while standing on a flag, because I'd rather block and don't want to run down my stamina. I suppose the flare is preventative, but I always say Magelight and Expert Hunter should be used when you already see the nightblade, e.g. to actively go after them and prevent them from getting away. As a defensive measure they are not that great, cause they need to be constantly recast and are costly. The range is low. You can't really use them to find a nightblade you knew was around a few seconds ago. Same goes for detection potions. However, when you see a nightblade, detection potions are great, since they have a decent range and duration compared to the skills. Always carry some kind of detection potion in addition to the regular ones you use.there are things I can use (revealing flare, expert hunter)
Nb counts till 5 and hits the I win everything button
All the other stuff really doesn’t matter. Nb mains themselves complicate their own class lol
You'll want to turn off most of Miat's options. In fact, you can turn everything or almost everything off, if you just want the "being attacked" sound.@fred4 true....flare is $$$ and once the NB stealth....if you drop 10, you'd be lucky to find them again.
The NBs are never in the fight...always before ie. waiting at a bridge, after a keep is won...sneak little #$%# - but that is their role
I disabled Miat's....takes up a lot of screen real estate and I don't think I got it config'd properly
I'm confused. Are you asking how to avoid the stun? Or how to break free? The stun functions like any other stun - when it hits you can immediately press break free to break the cc. You shouldn't be sitting for the entire duration of the stun unless you're out of stamina.
Incap is also one of the most telegraphed ultimates in the game - it has a very loud noise signaling its cast and the nightblade does a very obvious spin animation. With practice, you should be able to block it or dodge it with relative ease.
