Opposite effect on PC?[edit]

I felt like enemies spotted me easier when wearing a Fortify Sneak necklace, so I tested my theory by setting the sneakmod av to +1000. Sure enough the sneak indicator showed I was detected even without anyone near. Doing the opposite (sneakmod to -1000) I found I was never detected even as I was touching NPCs. Can anyone confirm this on the PC or the consoles? 22:04, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

I cannot confirm it, but a similar bug has been documented for fortify lockpicking, see here. It seems this issue is not restricted to that skill, and it stands within reason to assume that more cases will turn up. Feel free to add it. Wolok gro-Barok 22:49, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
Retested this bug. It seems to have been fixed by the 1.3.10 patch, so I am removing it from the article. 05:32, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
I've re-added the bug, together with the fix in version 1.3. Not everyone might have that patch installed. Wolok gro-Barok 14:52, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
Hello, i'm from the Wikia wiki. I know on my console version the fortify pickpocket enchantment still has a negative effect, I can't directly SEE how the sneak ones are effected. A note on the talk pages of the relveant pages there (on the wikia site) about this would be appericated. Thanks! 02:45, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
Confirmed. Fortify Pickpocketing is NOT fixed on 1.3.10 on PC. Fortify sneak and fortify lockpicking are fixed. This is relatively confusing.

Nightstalker's Footsteps[edit]

Fortify sneak is supposedly bugged, increasing the chance you will be detected. I'm on 360, so it's not very easy to test this in any reliable way, but has anyone on PC looked into whether Nightstalker's Footsteps is also bugged in a similar way, or is it a different effect that functions correctly. If not, it seems that being a vampire would be rather large liability to a sneaky character.

Fortify sneak and followers[edit]

Will followers gain advantages from apparal with fortify sneak enchantments on?-- 20:26, 10 February 2013 (GMT)

Enchantment not found on generic Daedric Armour.[edit]

The page says the sneaking enchantment appears on all types of equipment. I'd like to point out that Fortify Sneaking and Fortify Lockpicking enchantments do not appear on generic Daedric Armour, so you can't get hold of these enchantments through the Atronach Forge.
