I think you answered your own question here. The two greatest utilities that scouts offer their group is detect hidden and high speed recon (augmented by high survive ability via GM def stance which NS lacks) Third most useful utility would be summons for the vamp scouts. Both toons have the same toolbox when it comes to weapon powers (although the scout will have better ATR). Ultimately without GM detect hidden your group is at the mercy of any rogues (or invis mages) which means the opponents assassin will be unstoppable and your group will be defeated. The only thing the NS can offer the group is subpar damage after all he could be playing a casting nuker or an uber melee and be dishing out 3x the dps while still not exposing the assy . . . . . . . but he's on a NS.Khal wrote:Cryfowl wrote:They're going to <fluffy bunnies> at me for bringing a Nightstalker to a group function when i should obviously be on a bow scout lol.

Sorry, it's been years since I've played, n I never played a ns, or even a scout for gvg, but excluding more
Mobility n detect hidden, what does a scout have over the xbow ns? He definitely doesn't have a st n aoe damage/power damage debuff
For that matter group support bards almost always sport a bow giving yet another toon to lend a hand with grounding, snaring and def debuffing. The AOE debuff would be nice sure but not in exchange for all the scout has to offer.
