OK so I finally just completed the main Thieves Guild Quest... awesome stuff!! Now, in your opinion, which NightInGale Agent power in the best?
Agent of Shadow? Agent of Subterfuge? Agent of Strife?
None of my sneak skills are particularly high. But I went ahead and picked Subterfuge just for the jell of because it sounds fun.
Also, regarding Agent of Shadow....according to the wiki it allows you "to be invisible for 2 minutes while sneaking."....now, does this mean I can sneak during a fight, and actually remain invisible to all or most enemies while wacking them to death?
OR 2006: Coast2Coast city here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I picked Shadow. Never tried the other two so I can't comment on them. But let me just tell you that Agent Shadow is ridiculous (but fun). Once you activate it, everytime you crouch you turn completely invisible. It doesn't matter what level your sneak is or if you have any perks in sneak at all. Pretty much all enemies can't see you and won't attack you with a snap of a finger. Two minutes is actually a very long time too. You can turn invisible and go through an entire dungeon without anyone noticing you.
Agent Shadow is really for sneakers though imo. You can use it for near death escapes but that means you won't really use it that much to begin with. You might as well pick another Agent.
The once a day limit does suck but it's pretty broken otherwise. You can always time skip 24 hours and reuse it easily. But doing so becomes a hassle. I guess it's a way to force you to only use these abilities in dire situations.
They all suck. Shadow is probably the most useful, but it shouldn't be necessary if have invisibility potions or you're under the sign of the Thief Stone or have otherwise been investing in other thief/assassin-type stuff.
