Rogue Stealth Guide
In theory this rogue stealth guide should be very simplistic. In essence, you gain stealth to become semi-invisible. However, there are many factors which can dramatically influence your ability to remain surreptitious during combat.
Basically, default level of stealth is 300 (Rank 4 at 70), same with druids Prowl (Rank 3 at 70). There are several ways to improve your stealth; various trinkets, a few boots, talents, enchants, potions, and presumably glyphs in the expansion.
Enchants and consumables:
Master of Deception (1/5, +3 Stealth levels)
Master of Deception (2/5, +6 Stealth levels)
Master of Deception (3/5, +9 Stealth levels)
Master of Deception (4/5, +12 Stealth levels)
Master of Deception (5/5, +15 Stealth levels)
Vanish (Rank1 to Rank 3, +70 Stealth levels to stealth with Rank 3, 370 stealth in total)
Night elf racial:
Shadowmeld Passive (+5 Stealth levels)
That pretty much covers it as far as stealth improvement goes, but now let’s move on to your detection chance.
Detection is pretty much like a counter of stealth, you don’t have be a stealth user yourself to get additional stealth detection. There are many ways to improve your stealth detection such as engineering goggles, talents, consumables, racial abilities, class abilities, etc.
Hyper-Vision Goggles (+30 detect, when “used”)
Catseye Ultra Goggles (+18 detect, no level requiment but 220 engineering required)
The Night Watchman (+10 detect, random world BoE drop)
Bloodvine Lens (+10 detect)
Deathblow X11 Goggles (+5 Stealth detection)
Quad Deathblow X44 Goggles (+5 Stealth detection)
Talents, race/class abilities:
Heighened senses (+3 Detect, Rank 1 rogue talent)
Heighened senses (+6 Detect, Rank 2 rogue talent)
Perception (+50 Detect, Human racial ability)
Hunter’s Track Hidden (+30 Detect, Hunter class skill)
Warlock Felhunter’s Paranoia (+30 detect, Warlock class skill, pet)
Druid PVP Gloves (+10 detect, druid PVP reward)
Additionally, there is also one other special “Buff” called Shadow sight in arena that increases detection for an unknown amount. I’m pretty sure that it’s something unreachable by normal means, lets say over 1000 stealth detection. It could be even more considering you can see virtually any areas of the arena where a rogue or druid might be stealthed.
