  • Perception
  • Stealth detection dramatically increased.
  • Duration: 20 sec

Perception is one of six human racial talents, and it increases stealth detection by 50 points, or the equivalent of 10 levels.

Tips and tactics

  • As one can imagine, this ability is very handy against rogues (or druids). It boosts stealth detection enough to counteract Master of Deception and then some. Keep it hot keyed and you can hit it as soon as an enemy rogue hides and you'll usually reacquire them visually almost immediately.

Patch Changes (vanilla only)

  • Patch 1.8.0 (patch date:2005-10-10): Perception is now usable while stealthed. 
  • Patch 1.4.0 (patch date:2005-05-05): Increased detection bonus.
