    It's equally as bad with and without the Night Vision skill in most situations. Except for when it's very dark. If you use Night Vision, it's almost impossible to see someone stealth near you.

    This ss is without night vision before it got dark outside.

    Um... isn't that the point of stealth?

    Can you explain how it's broken? What's the expected behavior vs. the witnessed behavior? It sounds like all your saying is that stealth makes it hard to see people?

    Ok, the screen shot I posted was taken without Night Vision active., which is the only spell that alters your vision.

    The silhouette of the stealthed person is very visible in the screen shot. This unfortunate circumstance, makes the skill useless in a PvP situation.

    However, if I use Night Vision when it's dark out, it's actually difficult to see the person that is stealthed.

    So, the only time stealth works properly is under special circumstances.

    1. It must be dark.
    2. The onlooker must have night vision as an active buff.

    If you DO NOT have Night Vision active, and there is someone stealthed near you, it's even easier to see them at night than it is during the day.

    okay, that makes more sense but clarification still needed: is the screenshot taken by the stealthed person? your own appearance while stealthed is supposed to be that grey outline, so you have a visual cue as to where you are.

    I took the screen shot of someone else stealthed. This is an old bug that seems to keep coming back when Unity is updated.

    I'd be surprised if the devs didn't know the bug in question just from the screen shot alone. (So far only players have asked questions).

    Ah, ok. When I read your bug report it sounded like you were complaining that while using night vision, you couldn't see other players when they're stealthed. Your bug report should just simply say that you're able to see other players when they're stealthed. Avoid using superfluous information.
