Stealth gains but Hiding stuck?

Post by Malrynn »

Is stealth supposed to gain faster than hiding? I have been stuck at 88.5 Hiding for hours now and Stealth is soon catching up at 84.5. Stealth is gaining steadily and quite fast actually at 8 AR.

Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong?

If you have some fanct "if hidden, then stealth" macro going, then you are probably just not using the hide skill because you keep sucessfully stealthing.

Hiding takes a while, and proximity to people can make it gain a bit faster.

Of course, hadn't thought of that! Thanks!

Also where are you macroing? In a house? If so you won't gain in a house.

Of course not. The gains have started again when only doing hiding for now, but man, are they slow...

For what it's worth, I got GM stealth on OSI servers before I got GM hiding. This was during 8x8 era for skillgain, so you *had* to move 8 tiles between each attempt for skillgains (meaning I had to hide every time I went to stealth). Stealth has a difficulty check, hiding doesn't. Skills with difficulty checks have almost always raised faster than skills that don't.
A conversation during character creation:
Me: Do you think I should use my old character name..?
Him: I think you overestimate how famous you are. I doubt anyone remembers you anymore.
