So I'm playing a character right now who needs use of the scan skill. I have honestly never really utilized it before, I always had a character who didn't need it or had a buddy around to watch my back.
Anyway, this character is about a day's worth of playing time old, and hasn't improved his scan skill whatsoever whereas just about all of his others are increasing.
I've been on a bit of a hiatus over the last couple years, and maybe I'm just not used to the novice/apprentice/ etc yet but I could swear it used to go quicker. Any of you know what might be up? Am I just not using it right maybe? I've tried scanning where I know there's hidden (N)PC's and gotten fails on it and all that, but still nothing.
It also depends on the guild. A merchant needs to fail it much more, then an assassin or ranger, even though caps are similarish. Overall, you've got the idea of it. You scan where there are hidden npcs. As far as I know, it's irrelevant if it's city or wilderness, as long as you fail. Though I might be off on that.
It's pretty hard to branch scan in Allanak, if you're stuck in the city. You are pretty much stuck to hidden/sneaking pcs. Though do not worry, there is usually always at least 'someone' who is eavesdropping on taverns and crap, so you'll fail. Just keep scan on.
If you're in Allanak, but can get out whenever you wish. Visit Red Storm and just walk across the street and bazaar. You've probably passed by 2-3 hidden npcs right there.
If you're in the rinth, your scan will go up very fast, regardless of what you're doing. Your def too ... if you dont die .
if you're in Undertuluk, you dont need scan, you've got sonar.

grumble: A hater, complaining about haters, who aren't really haters.

grumble: I mean, there's no hate to it. If a bunch of people come forward with complaints like these, you can't just blame the victims.

grumble: If, as an effect of being revealed, it drives people away from the game, it's not the truth's fault. The truth is the truth. If you don't like the truth, then change the situation to suit the narrative in your head.

Jeshin: I've noticed there is a habit of dehumanizing this board and people who bring complaints as haters, goblins, toxic, etc etc. Yet there is normally very little dehumanization here of staff or players. Or is there

grumble: Fucking dehumanize the world. We're all animals and we do dumb shit. There is nothing divine about humanity. That said, we have standards.
