    so many complains about elves...feels good to be khajiit.

    Khajiit were literally just bludgeoned to death in the last patch. They are now worse than Dunmer (the other hybrid race) in every single role.

    This is a horrible change. Hopefully they don't implement it.

    We’ll find out in 5 days

    If the Bosmer stealth nerf goes live it will show either an absolutely incredible disconnect (or just plain disregard) by ZOS to their players. Neither of which are traits you would look for when contemplating supporting a developer.

    Well, they’re making it easier and easier for me to keep my sub off the table and ignore future purchases (don’t have Summerset or Elsweyr). I won’t quit over this, no, but I will continue to stress their servers and not give them any more money for the far forseeable future.

    I’m not sure they even considered it. They are counting on Khajiits to make up any losses from other areas. It’s the Khajiit expansion after all

    5 subs were cancelled in my house this morning, since it appears this is gonna go live.
    My niece only plays sneaky wood elves so she is done. My nephew only subs to play the game with his wife so if shes gone he is gone.
    My son subs so he can play the game with his old man and i quit my 2 subs because i am not paying to have my favorite race gutted, so he quit too. 5 subs gone in my house alone, because someone at zos decided wood elves shouldnt be sneaky. None of us even cared about the nerfs, that happens in every mmo, but making cats the only race with a real stealth passive was just too much.

    I feel sorry for you, mate, but I can relate, on a smaller scale. +1 awesome.

    Bosmers sneaking past all the dangers in the woods. Come upon a cultist doing a ritual? Sneak past. Come upon a brigand ambush? Sneak past. Come upon a mighty beast? Sneak past. The feeling of “yesssss” when you can squeeze by in tight spaces unnoticed. Sometimes I’m able to take what I need from right under their noses.

    Incidentally, if you're wanting to make any character stealthy, my recomendation would be either Night Mother's Embrace (the Night Mother drop set, not the crafted one), and either Darkstride, Night Terror (for reduced detection radius), or Night's Silence (for full movement in stealth).

    Did you seriously think that somebody who makes as much of a fuss about stealthiness as I do didn't know that?

    Yes.

    I think the stealth detection is OP but if you think lore is more important...

    That's kinda the problem; it's not.

    In PvP it's incredibly potent, situationally, but in PvE it's meaningless.

    So, we have a major racial passive that's PvP only. I'm not wild about that. There have always been races that did better in PvP or PvE, and of course, the Breton's minor racial passive is PvP only, but having a major passive be PvP only is an issue.

    Best to use sets and vampy if you want to go all out. Though for PvE sets will give you great stealth for the thief playstyle. :)

    Unfortunately a lot of people on the forums have 1 or 2 mains and don't really care about every other race or class. This is what nerf threads create and always will. Concentrating on nice buffs to keep things on par with each other would be better but people are salty. This happens every dlc.
