    So where do I find this Cupid feller? Is there one main spawn somewhere or is it all over the land or only in dungeons etc etc?

    It has always been like this, but there was a bug a while back that if you were standing on top of someone, you could not track them. And yes, common sense would indicate if you use tracking, even at 10 skill. You can see someone standing 1 tile from you.

    Hunt the lands for his minions who occasionally drop scrolls. Scrolls get applied to the altar outside Wrong to summon Cupid.

    Thanks! Killed about 50 of them but no luck on a scroll. Do I have any chance at solo'ing a scroll at Wrong (once I get one) or should I toss that idea?

    You would want to go with a group or minimally work with a group at wrong, between player killers and the monsters it is a very dangerous location. But many of the same rewards can be earned by hunting the monsters in the overworld. As the event progress it will be a bit safer to head to the wrong cupid champion.

    Also we will be increasing the overworld spawn to account for how many players there are this year as well.

    @Chris Thank you for the event and the work you are putting in the game.

    I got some questions thoe:

    Tracking seems to act really weird after the patch. I cant track my guildmates standing 4-5 tiles away from me with %100 accuracy. We tried it with 4 players and tracking skill was not able to find 2 of them in the first try, than 1 of them in second try than another one on third try.

    It is now almost impossible to track hidden characters. I tried tracking several times at wrong at the event. Couldnt find anyone for 4-5 tries than used "reveal spell" there were 3 hidden guys next to me.

    So I guess the change is not only about 50 tiles less distance but GM tracking actually acts like %50 skill...

    Nice, looks like we'll actually have to get out and find things instead of just hotkey locating them with pinpoint accuracy from screens and screens away. lol
    Gonna finally drop that 30 Tracking off of Blaise and go GM Magery.

    I don't think tracking should be able to find a hidden player with pinpoint accuracy...and if the player hid and then stealthed away it should be even less accurate.

    I'm going to 2nd this. I am finding the same issue. I can't track my 2 guys hidden in my own house from within my house. Neither have hiding skill, but they were hidden. This is at GM tracking.

    If you're going to argue that then I'll argue that at GM you shouldn't be able to hide with perfect success unless you're under a tree, next to a wall, etc.. This, luckily, isn't the case. I always argued that tracking was too powerful in dungeons. I do not think that failure to track someone, with 0 hiding, in the room next door, is working correctly.

    Tracking will be work in progress for a bit as we get the formula worked out to balance a variety of situations.

    At the moment being hidden does provide a decent bonus to avoiding being tracked by other players.

    I PMd you already about it yesterday, Chris. After another day, I would still say it's too difficult to track right now. Especially the medium 2-15 tiles range isn't working very well.

    I am sure you will do your research into this, but perhaps player feedback like this helps to be aware of it.

    Sad I chose Tracking as my 7th skill. It's worthless now. Will drop. I like how with GM Hiding you're nearly undetectable by GM Tracking however GM Hiding and GM Stealth a screen away can be revealed with Detect Hidden 100% of the time. Cool.

    My whole premise for Tracking was to assist in locating people who would rather run and hide than fight. Now, perhaps I should just run a detect hidden macro loop since it's so OP now.

    Maybe a good "middle ground" between GM tracking and GM hiding, and this is just my .02, would be that tracking would give you the direction of a player, but would be static after that... meaning: if you ran that direction, and ended up passing that GM hidden player, your tracking wouldn't tell you they're behind you now it would remain the same (unless skill is used again, perhaps, then it could update the direction). Essentially meaning they tracked you this direction, but you hid so well they ran right past you.
    Just a suggestion.

    So I have a scroll "of dangerous love". Is that the scroll I use at Wrong, or something different?

    The scroll advances the red candles around the altar in front of wrong or at a Cupid camp location. I have one also but wanted to find out how "far" it advaces the army spawn. 3 candles? 8 candles? All of them? If anyone else knows that would be appreciated.

    I use my gm tracker dexxer to find holiday monster spawns. I've got 2 vday bags, 20+ holiday coins and a lost love scroll so far on this event.
