I know this is going to have a lot of traditional MMO features so I'm wondering if stealth will be in the game? If it is then I'm going with the rogue class. :P

Quick and easy answer: absolutely! Check through some of the other threads already in place and you'll learn quite a bit of information regarding stealth and other features of the game.

Everyone can sneak, regardless of class.

Ah thanks, yeah, I will definitely go through some of the threads later, I was just looking for a quick answer. :o

Yeah, I assumed they would have that in the game but I was thinking about traditional invisible stealthers. Most MMOs have a rogue type class that can go invisible. And it is my favorite class in most games.

Sneak is the invisibility in TESO, it relies on stamina and can be improved in the medium armour skill tree.
We're assuming the final class will be a Nightblade, that may have some skills that rely on sneak and some nuke skills.
It may not be though, as you can put any class in medium armour and make it a rogue.

It is also important to note that the way sneak will work is that in pve, you will simply be hidden; in pvp you will actually be invisible.

I think the stamina determining length of stealth will be really nice. I can't count the number of times I've been dismantled because of classes with infinite stealth who can pop in and out of it repeatedly in PvP.

Stamina replenish when you are stationary and stealth consumes stamina only while moving.

There is a small time window before stealth is activated and it only works if no ones sees you (at least with NPCs) so stealth hopping wouldnt be possible.

Just to add both of those points, I like that design. Simply because it makes stealth more of a strategic thing. You aren't going to be able to move across Cyrodiil and cover nearly as much ground as you could in other games and stay in stealth as someone running around freely not trying to stay invisible.

Yeah it was a great idea for them to add the stamina factor to stealth. It makes building your char a little more challenging.

What about equipment options though ?? Will they provide specialised raw "stealth" as in percent difficulty of detection. I am guessing that stamina equipment, foods, potions will be standard and buff stealth as it would anything else that uses stamina

There will be stealth. As soon as you enter stealth mode; a sort of a small black-like-smoky-shadow-thing surrounds, as far as I know this is only visible to you, the rest will probably just see you as invisible.

Going into to stealth mode will cost you stamina points though.

Yes there will be stealth, no there will not be lolstealth

I don't care for stealth I want the archer class to be able to use a pet like in Guild Wars 2 etc. But there will be stealth but not like invisibility stealth. Probably Skyrim sneaking.
