    Exclamation Marksman speed useless in pve


    Mobs match your speed when you are running at 45% ... so why does a marksman have this ability in a pve soul? You can't use it to escape death if your pet dies.. you are screwed. Anybody know WHY they make all the mobs match your speed making half of these skills useless in pve?

    Haven't really noticed any mobs matching my speed, and I've been kiting a lot of elites/boss mobs lately as MM.

    Same. I've used the run to escape quite a few times when too many mobs get pulled. perhaps you are snared?

    What I see happening is that the speed is useful, but mobs sticky. Meaning if they don't hit you - you can out run them. If they DO hit you and you try and run, they just match your speed.

    I haven't noticed that, not saying it is impossible but I just haven't noticed. I frequently pull a few too many and have to make a run for it.

    Add Riftstalker w/ 0 points. Plane shift, run away at speed, profit.

    oh, I think that makes sense cos when you are mounted and they hit you in meele range, they also run at 60%, but if my pet agro's and i mount up run away, they dont catch up to me.

    well isn't this a erm.. bug? or did they intend for you to not be able to run from a mob when they are in melee range without snaring/rooting it ? with this "sticky" system in place it makes it very hard for a ranger who's pet dies to escape the mobs that were pulled.. if you can't run from them (if theres more than 1 for example) what do you do? just die cos the system is broken?

    I have experienced this too. And that too in low level areas i.e. the mobs right next to King's Retreat. I have received different explanations from different people.

    1> Mobs have a speed boost to match yours.

    2> Hasted shot is bugged by which it gives the same speed boost to the mob as you.

    Most people wont notice this because they play ranger along with MM. The mob is not running towards you if it is being tanked by the pig, is it? In beta I tried to play without the pig... got pwned due to this weird speed boosting multiple times. Not to mention the other mobs you aggro while kiting.
