With a B skill, yes they are. With an E skill (I've been leveling up Club recently, which is an E skill for THF), they only last until about 144 or so.

These definitely link, and hide doesn't seem to work on them so Imma say they are either not sight aggro, or they have something else going on.
higher education: almost, but not quite, entirely unlike learning skills relevant to real life

They AGGRO to sight, and PURSUE by scent. If you're invisible, they will not aggro you, but you can't Hide from them to shed aggro. Use Flee, use Deodorizer, then Hide.

<Qiqirn Mercenary> Why dooo these adventurers keep coming just to steal ooour bags?
<Qiqirn Diamantaire> I dooon't knooow...it's not like they're wooorth anything.

The Qiqirn Mercenary pulls a Karakul Sack off of a roll and starts filling it with some nearby sand...

It agros to SIGHT and SCENT!! that is why you got agro when you only used hide. BTW for people who don't know, Hide is a thf ability that gives you the invisible effect. So you need someone to deoderize you or bring some powders. I can confirm this is true. One of my party members were meeting my party at crawler's nest. Someone trained one of these and he used invis poweder and sneak powder and it still agroed him. He then got deoderized and he was fine. However, if you run by them really fast you will not be agroed due to scent, I heard.
#Kavlin, Posted: Jan 04 2006 at 10:37 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) They aggro sight, and then follow you by sight and scent. You only need to be invis to get by them no matter how "fast" you run. The deororize is for when they are attacking and following you already only. Nothing that I know of aggros by scent, it's a "tracking" feature when you already have aggro.

If you are talking about Invisible when you say hide... then you are saying what I am being told. Most everyone that I have ever talked to about Beetles say they aggro on sound. I am a level 41 WHM right now so I am playing it safe and wearing both sneak and invis when in areas with these bad boys. I will post if I possitively Identify either or.
