sounds like archers could use stealthlore pots to easily avoid assassins
Why on earth should they have to. (i tested it, was 400g for 10pcs for a while on cm) and you will go broke fast since its short duration ofc and should be.
If i as a minstrel uses one, an Assassin still see the minstrel at close to the doble range.
because the sologame and especially the stealthgame is an armsrace about pots/charges...
you also don't need to have it permanently active, but at hotspots or when you were visible shooting enemies it would be smart to pop one if you don't want to change your position.
Many claim that there are just no options to avoid PAs from assassins, which is just not true. Archers here have reported that they often turn/avoid PA, and those who can't do that fast enough could use stealthlore pots.
Someone must be using them, otherwise they wouldn't be expensive. YOU chose to not pay the price others are paying. So live with the downsides.
I am not saying that archers are fine btw. there are problems. (mainly no reason to specc in bow, pathfinding and especially beastcraft lacking, just to name 2) But i disagree that they should be on even footing VS assassins in melee when they are a ranged class.
Afaik you can preload a critshot and then chose your target afterwards (which wasn't possible on live), with higher stealth detection archers would get free critshots on assassins, without a positional requirement...so not every custom change on phoenix is a nerf.
