Hiding/Stealth Question

Discussion in 'UO Crime' started by Connor_Graham, Nov 29, 2007.

  1. I'm building a Stealth Thief/Scribe/Mage/Spellweaver but due to my account age, my template is leaving me a bit short on skill points even with Shadow Dancer Leggings. What I need to know is what is the minimum skill level in Hiding that I can have and still be able to hide 100% of the time if I'm wearing medable armor, of which I have both barbed leather and a couple of pieces of plate "mage armor"? If absolutely necessary, I could spend some gold and get more leather, but I'd kind of like to avoid that if I can since I already have what I need.
  2. Hiding has nothing to do with armor. Only Stealth does. And the only way to have 100% chance to hide is with GM Hiding.
  3. Aah, ok. Well I'm good on that then. I'm taking Stealth to GM, which, with the Shadow Dancer Leggings, will put me at 120.

    And I guess the other part of my question regarding plate mage armor, would have to be asked again for stealth. If it's Mage Armor, does it affect stealth, or does it act as leather would?
