Ok, so I was at a bit of a loose end this evening, so I decided to start testing sneak speed stacking. My main issue is trying to find the longest possible straight line course to test on, as I think I have found the best possible sneak speed build already. What I ended up with was 15 monk, 2 ranger, 1 rogue on a Shadar-Kai. I don't think there's anything further that can be added, but I'd love it if someone could suggest any improvements. Anyway, anyone have any ideas as to a perfect straight line course (preferably with decent start and finish line markers) so that I can come up with some more accurate numbers? At the moment I've tested briefly in eveningstar between the bonfire next to the trainers and the one that's just past the entrance to the inn (straight north path).
The preliminary tests seem to indicate that the sprint boost only applies to the base run speed (i.e. base sneak speed in a sneak situation), which means that standard sprinting still ends up faster (average ~8.7 seconds), compared to sneaking with the sprint boost (average ~10.8 seconds). Standard run speed works out quite a bit slower (average ~11.7 seconds). What's ridiculous is that the non-sprint boosted sneak speed (~11.5 seconds) is still actually slightly faster than the non-sprint boosted standard speed. All tests were conducted with 10 repetitions, which is probably not enough to really iron out the bugs, so take that with a pinch of whatever volatile controlled substance you wish.
Can anyone suggest any improvements or better courses, or possibly even just provide me with some sort of psychological help... I have become completely addicted to looking like the vengeful spirit from the grudge
