Summary

  • Tracking success chance is (100% * (Tracking Skill / 100))
  • On a successful tracking attempt, players can see a list of non-hidden targets within (20 + (80 * (Tracking Skill / 100))) spaces
    • Inside dungeons, this tracking distance is halved (10 + (40 * (Tracking Skill / 100))) spaces
  • On a successful tracking attempt players will also see hidden targets, however only up to a base distance that is 10% of their normal tracking distance
  • With the Detect Hidden skill, the distance for tracking hidden targets is improved to (10% + (40% * (Detect Hidden Skill / 100))) of their normal tracking distance
    • Because tracking distance is halved in dungeons, the range at which hidden targets can be tracked is halved as well.
  • 100 Tracking Skill and 0 Detect Hidden a player can track non-hidden targets up to 100 spaces and hidden targets up to 10 spaces away (50 and 5 spaces respectively in a dungeon)
  • 100 Tracking Skill and 50 Detect Hidden skill the player can track hidden players up to 30 spaces away (50 and 15 spaces respectively in a dungeon)
  • 100 Tracking Skill and 100 Detect Hidden skill the player can track hidden players up to 50 spaces away (50 and 25 spaces respectively in a dungeon)
  • Players who are actively tracking any target or have "Hunting" mode currently enable receive a melee and spell damage bonus
  • Players can right-click to cancel the on-screen tracking arrow for their current tracked target and they will still receive the damage bonus against it

Hunting

  • Players can activate and deactivate a "Hunting" mode from the Tracking window to automatically make Tracking skill checks at various intervals (still requiring the normal 5 second skill cooldown) against a specific type of player/creature
  • When a new target is successful tracked via the Hunting mode, a Tracking Arrow to the target is placed on screen and the player receives a system message informing them of what they are currently tracking and how many spaces away it is currently
  • Players who are actively tracking any target or have "Hunting" mode currently enable receive a melee and spell damage bonus

Players can click arrows to rotate through and select a specific type of player/creature to Hunt, such as:

  • Aggressive Creatures
  • Passive Creatures
  • Townsfolk
  • All Players
  • Freely attackable (hostile) players (Red, Orange, or Grey)
  • Orange Players only
  • Red Players only
  • Grey Players only
  • Blue Players only
  • Green Players only


Based on which "Hunt Frequency" the player has selected, the Tracking system will make Tracking skill checks at various intervals for their currently specified Hunting player/creature type based as follows:

Current Combatant

  • Will constantly make Tracking skill checks, but only against your current combat target
  • IE. Last creature you double-clicked or did damage to


Always Get Closest

  • Will constantly make Tracking skill checks and set your tracking target to whatever is closest
  • Ideal for gaining Tracking skill


Follow Only Individual

  • Will constantly make Tracking skill checks but only against the last selection you made from the regular Tracking Results window
  • Players should always select this mode when they want to track and follow another player that is likely moving


New When No Arrow

  • Will only make Tracking skill checks when you don't have a Tracking Arrow active on screen
  • Ideal for farming


New When No Target

  • Will only make Tracking skill checks when you don't have a Tracking Arrow active on screen and your last tracked target is no longer trackable, due to being dead or too far away
  • Ideal for farming and having an uncluttered screen

PvM Bonus

  • When tracking a creature, the on-screen tracking arrow will update every second with the creature's new location
  • Increases melee damage against any creature while tracking an individual target or in Hunting Mode by (50% * (Tracking Skill / 100))

  • Increases Effective Barding skill against tracked target or in Hunting Mode by (10 * (Tracking Skill / 100))

PvP Bonus

  • When tracking another player, the on-screen tracking arrow will simply point to the player's last location at the time the tracking skill was made, and will not update it's location if the player moves unless another tracking attempt is made
  • Increases melee damage against any player while tracking an individual target or in Hunting Mode by (10% * (Tracking Skill / 100))
  • Increases spell damage against any player while tracking an individual target or in Hunting Mode by (10% * (Tracking Skill / 100))
