@locate is really annoying in that, while it's supposed to be vague, it's too vague. There's areas for Mt Ghakis for example, or eastern Svalich Road, or the Southern Forests.  But there's nothing for the cave systems under Vallaki, or some of the countryside areas, so it shows as everyone being in "Vallaki".  Makes it hard to find prey.

i kinda mentioned this a while back when i played my wight on the MPC thread.. so.. I whole heartedly agree... the LFRP is more accurate then the @locate.

Monica O'Sullivan: Master explorer
Tsubaki Yamamoto: Shadow Thief
Roesor Cryso: A slave for the Masters.

This could really be used to be more exact. I spent most of the night trying to find people and failing despite there being between 22 and 28 people in vallaki alone.

I agree with that as well, while it shouldn't be as accurate as the LFRP tool a bit more accuracy would be good I think.

I remember having a lot of difficulty finding people even with the @locate on my AMPC
