So if I created a Restoration Loop-Fortify Enchant potion and enchant a piece of equipment with a crazy Fortify Sneak percentage; Will I be undetectable at all times, or only sneaking? My character's already godly enchanted; I'm just trying to go around practically invisible, without having to cast invisible and muffle/placing muffle enchant. Or is there a way to make the spell last "infinitely"(aside from recasting after interacting with objects. I prefer the prior.)

  • Only way to find out: steal something in front of someone ;)

    To answer your 'will it make me invisible without sneaking question. Answer this. Will a crazy fortify one handed skill help you do two handed damage? (the answer is of course, no).

    @Ids i know a better comparison. Will a insane high one handed skill help me hit things harder without hitting things? Since he is not sneaking it really does not make sense to count the sneak skill to it.

  • @MennoGouw Well to be fair, isn't there a skill in the sneak tree that allows you to sneak while running, so isn't it possible that this will help at all times?

    @Draedalus That running while sneaking skill just means while you're already in sneak mode, you can still "run" and it won't affect your detection.

Your sneak skill only affects yours chances of detection while sneaking.
