Talk:Sphere of influence

The two definitions are incompatible. The first paragraph states that you can test it by clicking on a party member. This means it is talking about the player's Radar radius. The bullet points is talking about the aggro circle. --Karlos 02:35, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Agreed. I have replaced the bullet point with a note that should help clarify the two terms. Maybe an article could be started at aggro circle (or aggro bubble, but I think aggro circle is the more widely used term) as well. — egads talk 07:01, 4 January 2006 (UTC)
Considering the vertical range of aggro is probably infinite, calling it aggro sphere or bubble don't really make sense d-: -PanSola 22:53, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

The actual sphere of influence is a tad larger than all that can be displayed on the compass. I'd say that, for an unaltered-compass size, the range also includes the solid metal collar around the glass of the compass. Easiest place to verify this is Pre-Searing Ascalon Arena, where if members of both parties are pressed up against their door they can be seen and targetted by the opposing team but remain out of the compass range. --Havral Glommon 11:08, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Discussion on the move[edit source]

Eh, Firefox, did you read the last statement of the article? Just want to check what you have in mind when you put in the move template. -PanSola 01:13, 8 March 2006 (CST)

Since there's been no more talk, and the sphere of influence is not the same as the aggro circle, I'm going to remove the tag. -- Bishop icon2.png Bishop [rap|con] 04:37, 20 March 2006 (CST)

Official Term?[edit source]

Is this referred to by ANet in any documentation, or is this something GuildWiki made up because there was no name for it? (Where "it" is the range where party members are active versus greyed out.) If it's effectively something we made up, we should note that on the page. Also, ANet has referred to Compass range before (in a game update, I believe), and possibly other terms. --JoDiamonds 11:20, 31 July 2006 (CDT)

I believe I heard of it in "official capacity" before, but not sure if it's on the official website or in the game. It's been a long time since I noticed this term though. -User:PanSola (talk to the Follower of Lyssa.png) 12:36, 31 July 2006 (CDT)

drops[edit source]

should drops be mentioned? I mean for reservations so if a sword drops it is assigned to any one random person within the sphere...— ~Soqed Hozi~ 19:00, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

Shadow step[edit source]

Using shadow walk, aura of displacement and dash in AB, i've shadow stepped past the range. That part of the articule should be changed.--Darksyde Never Again 02:52, 17 November 2007 (UTC)
