    Default Sannyasi and Stealth

    I've never run Monastery much, but today I decided to try and stealth it on normal difficulty just to see if I could solve the puzzle solo (current build is a rogue assassin). I always thought this quest was completely stealth-able.

    My hide and move silently were 91 for the quest. As expected, almost all the quest was easily stealth'd. But I ran into somewhat of an issue at the boss: (this all happened without losing stealth).

    I was sneaking by the wall in the corridor right before the boss when out of the blue Sannyasi made a bee-line strait for where I am. There was no detection warnings (no red eye indicating I was seen, no red lines indicating I was heard). I moved as he was coming and he went to where I had been.

    I moved into the puzzle room and after a few seconds he started to run strait to me again, so I Shadow Jaunted out of my current position and ran up ramp to the high ground. After some time of swinging at nothing (maybe 10-15 seconds), Sannyasi starts to run up the ramp to where I am again. I jump down and the same scenario happens a couple more times until he bug's out on one of the ramps trying to go up, so I'm able to solve the puzzle easily.

    But I found his behavior very weird: there were no detection indicators (I should hope not, on a normal level 17 quest with 91 Hide and MS!) but still he seemed to sense where I was. I can hardly imagine being able to solo this at level, especially on elite.

    I found some old posts about Sannyasi and some type of trip-wire, super-acute echolocation and some changes in mod 9.

    My questions are, have you been able to stealth Sannyasi on elite at level? And should this be changed? (Not that it's the most relevant content).

    TL;DR: Sannyasi has weird detection AI which seems to bypass stealth parameters.

    Indeed. Happened several years ago. Some lazy misguided anti-stealth implementation. Haven't really run it since because I like to solo and he's such a pain to keep off the puzzle alone.
