So I have the Mute ability in one of my sets but I'm having a tough time figuring out how to actually use it. It's supposedly prevents any Templar around me within a certain distance from being able to kill, stun or use their abilities. I figure the orb that forms around me shows the region it's supposed to affect. However it doesn't seem to be working for me at all.
If I'm on the hunt and use it on a target, they almost always are able to contest the kill or stun me. Likewise when I'm being defensive, my pursuer is able to just run up to me and kill me. Yet somehow, if other people manage to use it on me, it always seems to affect me. It doesn't seem to matter if I use it only when close or preemptively for the approach.
In case it matters, I'm playing the PC version and it seems I'm connecting laggy hosts every once in a while. Kills, stuns or contested kills I know I should have gotten don't seem to register for me at times. But even if this is causing problems, why isn't it working even when I use it before they're anywhere near striking distance and if I try to compensate for the lag?
How the heck am I supposed to use this thing?
