Enemy ships cannot be marked while they are in clouds. If an enemy ship is near a cloud, there is a chance that they will not be markable. If the line of sight between the spyglass user's ship and the marked ship gets obscured, through cloud cover or world obstacles, the spot markers will disappear after a short time.
It is not needed to activate zoom to actually spot enemy ships. This is in particular helpful if spots need to happen fast. Enemy ships can also be spotted through the own ship, which is useful when the enemy is located above or below the ship and there is no direct line of sight (helpful in combination with captain mark).
At clan level 13 a special golden skin will be unlocked for the Spyglass.
Common Usage Edit
The spyglass is quite useful to engineers and gunners, as they will find little use in helm tools during their duties. This allows the player on the helm to focus on tools to increase maneuverability.
A ship is always notified of being spotted by a small icon right to the compass. In certain situations you might decide not to spot the enemy ship, thus avoiding alerting the enemy of your presence.
