what a stupid name.
LeoMaster @ 2005-12-07 19:13
?? The name is more confusing than what the nano does, lol. I mean what the heck is a Guile? And what does Guile of the Snake Oil Seller really have to do with reduction of rooting? :D
Redkross @ 2005-12-10 05:55
guile n.
1. Treacherous cunning; skillful deceit.

Snake oil n.
1. A worthless preparation fraudulently peddled as a cure for many ills.
2. Speech or writing intended to deceive; humbug.

It makes perfect sense. Its a cool name if you ask me.

I agree with LeoMaster, what does it have to do with reducing snare? I would have understood if the "snake oil" was meant to reduce friction.. cool name anyway
Moniker @ 2006-01-13 21:50
still a stupid name :P

the first one of these would be fine until the much higher lvls. This one would be more convienent but more nano cost and you should be able to intsacast the first one by the time you can use this one
Malaxia @ 2006-02-18 13:42
I can instacast it without problem, so it's great to get rid of snares when escaping/blitzing. And the nano cost is not high, at lvl 200+ you regenerate 400 nano fast.

The point is, crat still have the coolest names overall.
Retracnad @ 2006-08-17 18:51
the name means that the person is cunning enough to pull off a decietfull act aka getting out of the snare

The name would be more fitting for a trader evade buff.
GruzzyFunt @ 2009-08-18 00:19
Guile meaning sneaky, snake oil seller meaning untrustworthy (in this context)
tl;dr Sneaky fucker.
