Hide in shadows/invisibility not working

I'm replaying the game, this time having installed Ease of Use, Tactics and light of Selune mods, and I'm experiencing that hide in shadows (and invisibility) are not working.
Do anybody experienced thet or have any clue to solve it?
many thanks

Actually I think you use it to identify potions and to help solving at least a quest where you quote.
Not one of the best skill to invest on.

Unlike wisdom, Int is much mor edifficoult to boost.
Not many high boosting items in norm (some +1) and later in the game (I think you can start to see them from cpt 3)

Hi Cyrist, Dreadmaster are probably the most powerful cleric of the lot from a spellcasting point of view: 1) one of their special ability is tyrant dictum which gives a +1 Dc to spells tha need Will S.T. 2) most of their class spell need will save -> they are powerfull 3) Symbol hopelessness neen w...

A problem with Valen

I'm playing with Valen and everything went well since a coupple of days ago when she started to get blind and enfeebled not only during the day (outside of course) but also during the night. Still if I go inside after a while she gets normal, but once outside she return weak as in full sunshine. Did...

I think Conjurer should be the best choice, since, if I remeber correctly, you will miss Divination spells (most notably Identify and True sight), but with glasses and Keldorn you will not need those spells.

I read the spoilers ahead and I'm guessing what can I do to be able to at least shop the Helmites store? Can you temporarly drop Valen? To Appo13: get Sola in the und...

Usually Mindflayers drain 3 pt/hit of int., but maybe Ulitharid being elite elements drain 5. As for the Alhoon it is a very strong opponent, being an Ulitharid Lich iirc. As for them charming your Skeletons (which I hope are skeleton warriors) it seems strange, isn't that you are using some AoE spe...

I don't agree with that. A multiclass is better than a dual in his lesser class an inferior in his main class -> a F/T is a better fighter than a fighter->thief (even a kensai) and is inferior as a thief. Obviously I'm talking of dualling at reasonable level. I usually dual a fighter at 9th it take ...

I don't know how much is implemented the penalty of armours for thieving abilities, but they never hindered my thieves. Also in the medium term there are a lot of items that enhance thieving abilities, while long run the ability points a far too many that you will not know where to but them. So for ...

Yes he drops the same armour. Just finished the quest coupple of days ago. But there are better armour for thieves around: The night's gift is similar but better, way better are Shadow dragon scale, Aeger hide (from Ribald), lately bladesinger (improvable in ToB), human flesh armour if you are evil;...

Definetly remove/dispell magic works, better if you have inquisitor to cast it. He doesn't have strange spells, but only uses well normal mage spells (make to think how poorly we play to be surprised of how hard is to beat a well managed char). He is imp. invisible so you can't target him with spell...

Multi or Dual I think depends on how you want to play the thief. If you want to play the char as support fighter with thieving abilities (mainly open locks/find traps with occasional backstab) go multiclass. If you want to truly play a thief, exploiting traps and so on, dual class will give you more...

Proficiencies: I am quite sure that when dualclassing, you do not get the 'bonus' proficiencies at level 1, as you already had those at your 'first' level 1. Same as if you create at multiclass fighter/thief, you get 4 prof at level 1/1, not 4+2. Also, while dual and leveling as a thief, he should ...
