Maybe someone can help me to understand this.

As a swashbuckler we rely on our hidden talents to get close to are enemies and land hits.

I am curious to why Hidden doesn't overcome the first strike talent? If You are hidden I don't understand how you can hit me with first strike if I am supposedly invisible? same could also be said about the repel borders talent?

Hi!
Actually, first strike and repel boarders don't activate against a hidden enemy... unless they have first strike 3 or repel boarders 3, which specifically say that they can be used against hidden enemies. Hope that cleared things up.

First Strike 3 and repel borders (I think) are powers that enable users to see through hidden. Here is a fun challenge. Grohl, in the never mind cave in Aquila, Knossos, can see through hidden. If you are a swashbuckler, you can do a 2x rough hidden riposted epic if you survive the onslaught of his first strike rage. That's around, 2200+ damage! I recommend you use Ratbeard and Subodai to debuff him before you attack. Also equip a critical spell and agility boosts. And don't forget to be invisible!
