Ranger's Rapid fire tracks invisible targets

The skill two on ranger's longbow, Rapid fire will track and channel all the way if you go stealth midway. Is that supposed to happen? I thought stealth breaks targeting.

    Is the same for channel skills, necro axe 2 for example will track as well.

    Yes. Once the "homing device" engages, you can't lose it (without the usual: line of sight, dodge, block, etc). What stealth does is prevent the initiation of tracking. Often, there's enough of a delay before tracking engages that quick reflexes can prevent that.

    Except longbow has much more accuracy because of 1800 range and axe is spinning infront of necro in general direction of stealthed player.

    Better to use a port skill to get behind the person or something if they get the channel off. Same rules for all channels in the game.

    If you use a leap skill just before they stealth it will also follow too.

    IIRC from the old forum, a dev stated that is working as intended
