Best way to level up sneak?

#1pro9b17Posted 11/16/2011 8:02:43 PM
What are the requirements to gain levels in sneak? I assume it's not like Oblivion where you can find a town guard and hide behind a rock and just keep walking into it while in sneak mode.

Check the sticky, best way is to sneak attacks.

Get the thief stone, hide behind a greybeard and sneak attack him for fast leveling

Easiest way is to go to High Hrothgar, and just keep on sneak attacking one of the greybeards. None of them fight back.


However if you openly try to attack them, then they fight back.

Thanks, what about magic, like destruction restorations, alteration, etc? Do I have to be in combat to gain exp in casting them? Though I've noticed that I've gained points in restoration while healing after combat.

There is a blind guy in a cave East of Winterhold called White River Watch. When you walk in make sure you say that you are who he thinks he is. Then get the old elastic band out and go and do something else for a few hours.

If you are trying to do it through gameplay then just sneak a lot in dungeons and use the bow to perform sneak attacks.

Although 2 people have already pointed it out I'll try again, there is a sticky topic detailing all this. The purpose of it is to stop topics like this cluttering the board. Take a look at it.

I read this from another post and confirms that it works wonderfully.

The Greybeards in High Hrothgar are invulnerable and do not aggro/fight back. So you can crouch/sneak behind them and Sneak Attack them for gains. Just make sure that once they 'die', you let them get back up to revive. You don't get skill checks if you stab them while they're down.

If you're playing a stealthy character the best way to level it up is to actually play the way you intended. Sneaking a grey beard seems rather childish to me. Stupid is another word I'd use to describe it as well.
