- Q: How does Stealth interact with Massive enemies? A: Stealth says "… that enemy cannot engage you." This prevents the act of engagement. If the enemy is already engaged (or in this case, is "considered to be engaged") it won’t stop that engagement. In other words, Stealth only prevents enemies from becoming engaged with you. Since Massive enemies never have a particular timing point in which they become engaged with you, Stealth does not prevent their engagement. They are just considered to be engaged with you at all times while you are at their location. For the record, if a card said “cannot be engaged with you,” that would be a different story – that would prevent the consideration of engagement altogether. A Massive enemy who “cannot be engaged with you” would not be “considered to be engaged” with you."
Exhaust Stealth: Evade. The chosen enemy gets -2 evade for this evasion attempt. If you successfully evade the enemy, disengage with it but do not exhaust it. Until the end of your turn, that enemy cannot engage you.
Despite obvious weaknesses (once per turn only, does not help teammates), this may be worthwhile for a few investigators since there are few alternatives. Like flashlight, this makes 2 evade enemies much easier to succeed against (only the auto-fail token fails), especially on expert mode.
This card can help any Rouge or off-class Rouge paired with a Guardin with a Machete to get their engaged with an enemy. Also Rouges have spare actions to do this instead of wasting precious Machete-chopping time for the Guardian, and they may get it easier to activate Pickpocketing when doing so.
