I've been able to sap targets that are in mid combat as long as they are attacking me lately. Its not like i was kiting them and their combat dropped i mean like they will be in my face hitting me and I've been able to vanish and immediately sap them as if their combat timer wore off. It only works if they are only in combat with me. Obviously if other people are attacking them they stay in combat but it still seems like a bug. You guys notice this also?

Apparently as soon as you leave combat everyone around you also leaves combat, or at least something to that effect. I was watching a rogue stream the other day and it seems you can sap someone as soon as you leave combat (i.e. vanish) assuming you manage to do it very quickly before they have a chance to re-enter combat. So yeah it's really just a combat bug, not a vanish/nelf/whatever else bug.

I figured out how to reliably do it. When you vanish, you get your vanish buff but you arent actually in stealth mode yet. So when you vanish just hit stealth as if you are reentering stealth and anyone who is in combat with you, as long as you are the only person they are in combat with, will drop combat. and you will be able to sap them

so for anyone new to rogue if you wanna look fly in AB or any flag capping map. if someone is defending a flag and you blind and try to cap they obviously are going to trinket.. so while they are still near flag you can just vanish > stealth > sap instantly and recap for the finesse cap.


idk if its an intended change but im having fun with it currently

Pretty sure this bug is around since WoD.

UPD: If not earlier, I took a break in mop and cata.

Maybe a side effect of them trying to fix the "stuck in combat" bug a bunch of people get.

This was also the case in the last expansion. As you mentioned it, it only works when the target is combat with you only.
