I know the sith assassin has the ability to cloak itself, so how does it work when you want to use it to try to hide from enemy? Is it basally like massively reduce the enemy agroo range? but when you gets close the enemy can still see you? Also up to how many mobs level above you can make the cloak useless? For example I am level 20, will cloak ability have no effect on lvl25 mobs?

depends on your lvl vs mob lvl, also you can get a talent in deception that increases your stealth lvl and you get an ability that increases it alot for a short period of time. the exact numbers as far as how high a lvl it works on and how close you can get elude me, just stay away as far as you can and youll be fine.

Not sure about level range, but it function similar to a rogue in wow. But droids can detect really easily so be careful around them.
Lemmings gear up... we've got them on the run... one final push to the cliffs and they're ours.... CHARGE!!!!

It also depends what angle you approach things from.. if you walk straigh up to their face, they will see you a lot easier.

you will also get something above your head, warning you they have detected you. they wont attack right away, but if you don't move away quickly they will fight you.

And they'll make some sort of surprised sound.

In beta, it wasn't too bad to avoid mobs. I pretty much stealthed through the whole last mission on DK at level 16 and only almost got caught once. But I also gave them a wide berth whenever possible and made sure I was never directly in front of anything remotely close to me. So it really depends on your own ingenuity.

Why avoid the mobs T_T, I found them really easy to kill and the loot they dropped was sometimes really not bad at all. Seems like a way to ruin your income to me xD

I PvP'ed from 10 to 18, so stealth was really POT for me, skipping trash helped alot.
