  • Camouflage can be handy in an emergency, however its duration is far too random for it to be considered a reliable form of Invisible (Status).
  • Camouflage reduces the enmity generated by ranged attacks while it is in effect. While ranged weapon skills and abilities will immediately make the effect of Camouflage wear off, normal ranged attacks may still be used and have only a small chance to make the effect of camouflage wear off.
