    I guess I should ask if this is even the proper forum to ask.

    If so, can anyone tell me what kind of changes an old time player may expect when it comes to changes in the hiding and stealth skills?

    Not sure many frequent this forum anymore. That being said, ask any way.

    There are enough older players still that we might be able to help. From other posts I've seen you post it sounds like you maybe itching to play a detective on Siege.

    Good luck with that, I look forward to a good chase...la

    Oh one thing I can tell you about hiding and stealth is that the devs have made steal thing much easier. There is no longer a delay between hiding and stealthing.

    Once you hide you can stealth as many steps as you like and this is from a thief who runs around in full leather and only 80 points in stealth...la

    I was an assassin last time I played some 9 years ago. Changed it up with a thief template this time.

    I have only failed at 115 stealth on a few weird occasions. Standing in my house and poof.. revealed. In Covetous.. not a mob around.. poof. Besides that, unless I do something stupid or get directly revealed by somebody with gm skill, I remain stealthed.

    I would normally roll with 80 like Rico but I choose to raise it to 115 to accommodate my clumsiness. ;)

    I get this on my archer with 120 mate. I had to swap for a ninja hood and re-make a few bits from my suit to keep at 55lmc. Its a shame as the bone helms look so neat!
