failing stealth attempts at 120

Today I kept getting the message "You fail in your attempt to move unnoticed" when trying to stealth. I have 120 real skill stealth and I am wearing all medable armor except for bone legs and bone tunic.
Last I checked 105 stealth gave you 100% success rate with a full studded or bone suit with the head piece being medable. So 120 stealth with only 2 non-medable pieces should never fail either.
Did something change or am I bugged?

Comments

  • could it be that bone armor is bugged?
    I just ran a test with a full studded suit + medable helmet and had no fails at all.

    Just tried this with my thief and he also failed to use stealth at 120.  The Crystal Ball of Knowledge he carries says the attempt at stealth was optimal.  With just the tunic or just leggings stealthing was rated as too easy but combine them and it becomes optimal.

    I do a lot of BOD Bribing in Fel and yesterday just walking around I keep coming out of stealth for some odd reason, this has never happened before so maybe there is a bug with stealth that started yesterday.  Stealth 100%  Leather mage suit from cleanup

    There were no birds in any of the shops.  All runes are marked in the shops.  Walking from one NPC to the next making damn sure not to touch anybody.  Journal totally clean in that aspect of the game.

    Even running into a hidden person you would still get a system message, THERE WERE NO SYSTYEM MESSAGES, 
    Being perfectly rested, you shove something invisible out of the way OR you bounce back from the invisible object just like if you were not in stealth mode but in stealth mode it did not reveal me.

    well that would be a little odd because up until yesterday I had no trouble stealthing with that suit at all

    Someone secretly making backend changes to stealth skills. 
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Nothing weird about it, my old omen deathstriker would frequently fail with a non-med orc bone helmet (30 hci helm) and four pieces of non-med studded. Each piece of armor has a different weight when applied to the stealth success calculation, for example if I took that orc helmet off, I never failed, if I took of every piece of armor except for that orc helmet, I would fail maybe 10% of the time.

    As far as time relevance goes, I haven't played that character in at least three years.
  • I play a 120 stealth char every day - have been for the past 7 years. I know for a fact that bone armor used to behave exactly like studded considering stealth fails. All of a sudden it doesn't anymore.

    This is still a problem. Please change it back to the way it used to be. Thanks
