Escorting other people is difficult, preventing you from effectively remaining unseen.

How to Get

This power was applied to your character and all your teammates when an NPC was being escorted during an instanced mission.

Power Summary

Duration Active while an NPC is being escorted in an instanced mission, lasts until you zone
Effects Auto: -Stealth


Negative Stealth was introduced alongside the Invention System in order to avoid problems with escorting NPCs when auto powers were slotted with +Stealth Enhancements. The ability to grant stealth to auto powers was removed before the Invention system ever made it to the live servers, so the presence of Negative Stealth was intriguing at best. Negative Stealth would also appliy when NPCs fought with you during the mission, which was not an intended effect of the power since ally NPCs would always follow you when stealthed in the past.

The effects of Negative Stealth were removed at some point following its introduction, and the power was removed entirely with the release of Issue 21.
