Hey all! First, I want to say thanks for the help on my other questions. Ya'll have been very knowledable & very helpful. Thank you!

Anyhow, attaached is a photo of what im building. I have some decent elevation changes throughout the build however & I need to know what you guys would recommend doing on the elevation changes as obviously with this style post if done incorrectly, it will look quite awkward. It either has to be step, or slope. but wondering what you yall think would be best for this & also any tips you can provide on doing a slope if thats the route I need go. thanks!

I think the pattern across the each top section of your fence should remain as is.
Each fence section should step up. Then any adjustment for slope can be made on the bottom of each panel by cutting to the contour of the ground so there is no gap.

If you have any way to draw up a few options, I'd recommend it. I put up a similar fence on my sloped rear property line and after sketching out several alternatives decided on angling the runners to match the slope between each post, then altering the curved tops to start and end at the same place on each post. Curves won't be circular arcs anymore, but will still have the grace that design has running level.

Then again, you didn't say how steep the slope is. I'd make steps up a mountain side.
