I've just begun the Great Re-Download, and it looks like it's going to take about twelve days to finish. So my Murkmire Celebrating has come to an abrupt end. While I'm off-the-game, I'll share some of my wonderful mudball ambushing secrets.
There are basically four techniques for splatting other players with mudballs.
1. Trot through an area of high player density, tossing at everyone you pass, then escape via a wayshrine or a travel-cart when your annoyed victims start chasing after you, swinging their weapons.
2. Throw mudballs from a place of hiding. There are some excellent hiding spots (inside shrubbery or in tree branches, for example) in Davon's Watch, Vukhel Guard, and Daggerfall. It helps a lot if you are wearing camouflage clothing, such as a Priest Of The Green robe dyed thalmor black or bandit boss brown. Players have run right through me, looking for me, but not seeing me.
3. Have your player stand to the left side of a doorway (as you look in) leaning against the outer wall of a building, while doing the /leanbackcoin emote. It should look as if your character is bored and is just flipping a coin to while away the time. Every time a player runs inside through that doorway, you hit him with a mudball. Every time a player enters the game inside the building, you hit him with a mudball. Now to make this work, you must have one of your F keys macroed with /leanbackcoin, so that you can toss the mudball and then go back to flipping the coin in the blink of an eye. Don't throw at players who are outside of the building, and don't throw at players when there's someone suspicious of you lurking just outside the door watching every move you make.
4. Dang, I know that there is another technique, but it seems to have slipped my mind. Heh heh heh...
