Multiple stuns from stealth????

Ok, first I must say that I have never liked PvP until this game. Now I love it. However, I'm still having serious issues with being stunned and beat to death constantly! lol

I have played dozens of warzones trying to figure out how to do it myself and how to defend against it. BUT, here's my issue....

Whats happening is that Rebels are staying in an area completely stealthed. And I mean totally invisible for what seems minutes. Then, as I approach I get stunned for about 4 secs. ( Looks like I'm sleeping). When I can take 1 step, I get stunned again, then again, thgen again. One time it was 4 times in a row and NOBODY was around me. I'm assuming it was done "while" stealthed. And done 4 consecutive times.

I have also been running in a safe area and stunned like this. NOBODY was around me. Now, I managed to see a couple of these players for a brief sec doing this to other players and that stun seems to be done by Shadows. But I rersearched the shadow and they CANNOT do what I've explained.

How are they doing this??? ( Staying completely invisible for minutes, stunning while invisible multiple times, and never being seen?

This is IRRITATING!!! I know it's what it's suppoed to do and I'm not upset at all, but I just want to learn how to do it AND defend against it.

And help/advise?

It's a legit mezz, but OP, you did NOT get mind trapped four times back to back. One single mind trap puts the resolve bar just a sliver from being full. The stealther would have had to wait until resolve died down after the second mind trap to do it another two times.

Then WHY when I took just one step I was stunned again, then again, and again. YES, 4 TIMES! It must have been 4 different coordinated players then, each taking turns. Other times it was 2 and 3 times in a row. Happens to my wife also ( we play together). If it's a cheat, say so and I'll drop it. However, if it's meant to be in-game, I just want to learn it so I can get good at PvP.

As I said, It's a great strategy and works ( from personal experiance. lol ), but I just want to know who does it, whats the name, and the strategy?

mind trap will fil resolve after used twice if you took one step each time after 2 step you be a full resolve. Not sure how much sleep dart adds to you resolve though but mind trap will not do that.

Sleep dart is basically the exact same as mind trap, except that it's tech, rather than force. Fills resolve by the same amount, so it too, can only be done twice.

So when you say stunned again, then again and again is it all in succession like one right after another? If so then it's impossible two stuns, two mezzes or a stun and a mezz will fill your resolve.

only way possible is to let the person resolve go back down to 0 after each mess meaning you would not be cced after each step as 2 steps full resolve.

I think I get it. 2 times then? Could 2 players possiblly be doing this then? My wife and I play side by side and take turns with certain abilities. Could 2 players be just taking turns?

Also, This happens while I'm on my Imp charactger. So it's coming from the Rebel side. Whats the counterpart of Mind trap and what class?

And the stealth? All my stealth's on my alts are not completely invisible. The only completely invisible is Force Cloak on my wife's Shadow. But it only lasts 10 seconds I think. How can players "stay" completely invisible for extended periods of time?

I know I'm being a pest, but I'm just trying to be a better player in PvP because I keep getting hammered. lol.. Thanks in advance.

The original poster here has a point however they seem to lack the ability to articulate the fact that stealth classes are over powered. preticularilly against ranged classes. although pure rangded classes have steath detection on thier side this is a mute point when all stealth classes have the ability to veto stealth detection with abilities like sneak or blackout. also they already have the upper-hand because they are approaching with the ability to plan out their attack which makes the bounty hunter and Trooper classes stealth scan ability virtually useless because you are only guessing there is a stealth class in your area and to place it in the exact spot where they are in like i said virtually impossible and with a a cool down of 20 seconds is pointless.

I say that there should be no immobilization or rooting abilities available to classes while they are in stealth period !
