    If you attack them from behind or on their sides then you will get the bonus penetration.

    This is a recent change and I have to say I like it because it does not require you to attack from Sneak (although it works perfectly fine from Sneak). In PvE overland or dungeons, I always stand to the back or side and it gives you a good damage boost by cutting through a significant amount of enemy armor -- also works in PvP naturally.

    They also changed Silent Attack to Stun from Sneak or NOT! Just being to the back or side of an enemy will cause a stun.

    My personal feeling is that the Devs are buffing some minor mechanics in the Nightblade skill lines to help Nightblades do Assassin-type moves and damage.
