A character rolls stealth with advantage if he is invisible, because he can't be seen. Why doesn't a character get advantage for being behind total cover? The senses you rely on to detect the character is the same. It's also said advantage to stealth when you are hiding in darkness (assuming no darkvision).
Is that not RAW? Do you roll regular either way, or with advantage either way?
Consider this situation:
- Party's rogue enters the secret passageways around a room and rolls stealth to stay hidden by those inside the room. The stealth roll is just a regular roll even though the baddies inside have no way of seeing the rogue. Now if the same rogue was invisible, he would be rolling stealth with advantage because of it.
Am I missing something? Would rogue be rolling advantage either way, or on the contrary no advantages either way?
- Invisibility is cast on a rogue in the middle of the combat, rogue is now unseen so he can take the hide action without cover.
Would rogue now roll stealth with advantage because he is unseen or only benefit of being invisible in this situation is enabling hide action without cover? If advantage, shouldn't a rogue behind total cover during a fight also roll with advantage since he can't be seen.
