View Full Version : Undead Tracking
08-25-04, 04:35 AM
First, I just wanted to say hello since this is my first post!! :brow
Second, I was considering playing an Undead Rogue, however I have read that Paladin and Cleric undead tracking was is a hugh deterrent. I really like the idea of this race for a Rogue, speak both languages, resistent to CC and fear, but on a PvP server I think I could find a different race if this is still implemented!!
Thanks in advance!!

It's the price you pay for being an undead. You are also vulnerable to Turn Undead, Shackle Undead, and a lot of the paladin anti-undead spells. For every advantage the undead have, they have an equal disadvantage. If you only want to play undead because you think they are 'better' than the other races, then you are not going to succeed in that endeavor.
don't play undead on the pvp server, thats my only advice.
Hasn't undead tracking, and all tracking, gone to Hunter only? I haven't played a pally or priest to know if they get undead tracking for themselves later on.

As a paladin I am still able to track undead players, but I have heard rumors that they were going to remove the PC tracking, and have it only be NPC's.
I would only play an undead mage or rogue, as tracking doesn't seem to get invis/stealthed players.

speaking of pvp, the last patch mentioned level wouldnt be such a big deal as it was previously. So how is it?

It's to offset the racial abilities undead get, which are by far the best and I'm not just saying that because they're the only race with racial abilities right now.

Well, if you think about it from Warcraft lore, the undead were the most hunted/hated of all the Horde races, I believe, so it would make sense that playing undead should be more difficult. The Jedi in SWG comes to mind, not that I am trying to compare the undead to the Jedi or the games themselves but the idea of a hunted race is the same. Guess, I will be playing an Orc or Troll on the PvP server.

Don't be discouraged. There are tons of successful undead. In fact, it's the most common horde race at the moment.
