    What's the fastest way to gain hiding and stealth these days? Nobody has posted about it in a long time, not sure if there's been any changes. Raising it in a house still work well? Right now my hiding and stealth skill are just over 50.

    Find a spot in fel that lets you walk back a fourth when seting auto walk then set a marco to hide and stealth. The watch a movie and keep hiting the hot key for the marco.

    Make 2 teleporter tiles a good ways apart in a house. So that you can walk one way indefinitely, like a treadmill. Then make a macro for hiding on a key close to the arrows. Set your beer on both the arrow key and the hiding macro key. Don't use an expensive keyboard. When your beer gets too empty to hold down the keys, get another beer.

    Put hiding and stealth on the same macro and just hold down the button.

    The hiding and stealth skills have not changed in years; this guide in UO Guide is wholly reliable.

    Gains in Hiding are fairly straightforward: just use the skill; chances for a gain are the same no matter ones skill level.

    The Stealth skill is a little different: note that gains become progressively more difficult the higher ones level; in order to make a gain, one must add sufficient difficulty to the use of the stealth skill by way of clothing worn (see linked guide above).

    Fastest way is dress up accordingly (use ball of knowledge) be in your house, hide and move one step, hide and move one step... rince and repeat - and put on more armor to make it more difficult

    This works.
    Use skill – Hiding
    Delay – 70
    Use skill – Stealth
    Hold down button.
    Take a nap.
