Rogue quest "The Awakening" issues

I can’t get past these hostile guards to reach the objective (a guy I have to follow). They are higher level than me and there are several of them. I can’t find a way around them, and I can’t use my Hide skill (which I assume is what we’re suppose to do).

It keeps telling me I haven’t trained in the Hide skill, but I have the skill, so not sure what that means.

Did you allocate your points for run speed, hiding, skulking and so forth? You can ask these questions in New Player Help game chat and get more timely answers. Usually.


Yup, that was the issue. Thank you.
