I was wondering if there is anyway for someone who has stolen gear from a dead player to escape the guards and get out with the gear.
yes, you can either wait for your bandit timer to disappear or drink an invisibility potion and walk past them, might be able to get past them with a masked scent potion as well.
If you only stole their loot without killing them, you can just walk past the guards and they won’t attack you
How long is the bandit timer?
5 minutes if you just steal and for the first kill, then it will increase every time you kill a non-bandit player
