Would it be a waste to pick the Muffled movement perk if I intend to make use of boots enchanted with Muffle? It seems like they would do the same thing, unless of course they stack? Anyone know for sure?

You cant get more quiet than silent. Unless it stacks and you start to absorb sounds around you like a black hole of noiseless-ness. In short I have no clue.

I think the perk reduces it by 50% and the enchantment is 100%, which would make stacking pointless.  However, I don't know how necessary any muffle beyond 50% is.

I get the perk just because I need it to get shadow warrior.

My advice would be to take the perk (in order to get shadow warrior) and use a different enchantment on your footware since you can sneak just fine, the armor penalty barely matters later in the game

This seems to suggest the spell muffle is 100%, while they are assuming the enchantment is 50%.  Not really definative.

Pretty sure they stack. With both I can basically sneak right up infront of someone. On the Wiki it says it even reduces the sound of your weapons (except bows) with both perk/enchantment/spell.

I think only the Muffle Spell provides 100% movement noise reduction.

The Perk provides 50% and I think the enchantment to boots provides 50%, Personally I have no issues with just the Perk while sneaking, and it means I can enchant something else on my boots.

That would be awesome.
