90 percent of the time, the amount of damage you are doing doesn't show up on the screen. It's as though it's supposed to display over where you can see because the animations are sort of extreme close-ups.

That is the reason I can't confirm 100% how much hiding increases the damage of backstab.

I still like to think that hiding increases Sneak Attack damage.
