[Hiding] Can you go into hiding when targeted by a player?


Stratics Veteran
I am a returning player looking to train a thief.

I have noticed when targeted by monsters I can not go into hiding, unless I use a smoke bomb.

Would that be the same when targeted by a player?
Can you go into hiding when targeted by a player? If not, would smoke bombs be the right way to go?

Welcome back and welcome to thieving!

You are correct. You cannot hide from a player while they are targeting you and i think line of sight plays into it as well. So you best option at that point would be a smoke bomb which will let you hide while in combat.
