    RICO the perfect person to ask.

    I never had a theif, I am building one right now for the new items.

    stupid question I know but do I need snooping to steal the items from the monsters?

    I ripped off a rat just to see how it works… it says:
    "You reach into the backpack and try and take something…"

    I have 50 snooping on the guy now but that doesn’t say I used the skill.




    right now I am building stealing skill by stealing stuff out of the pack of my lama.
    I am not sure i understand how i am stealing something from my own lama. :)

    Errrr...this type of question should probably be put to those in the treasure hunter or rare collectors forum. We steal from other players here. No Doom or monster stealing here.

    Sorry folks...la

    I'm sorry, Mr. Mod, but that's a completely inadequate answer - particularly given the somewhat recent consolidation of the forums.

    If you can't offer a specific appropriately designated forum for the discussion of the use of the 'stealing' skill, then you really have no legitimate reason to direct people to avoid use the 'thief' forum. The FAQ notwithstanding, the FACT is that the title will naturally draw people here and there are no other forums that suggest they are the appropriate venue for such a discussion.

    Sorry to kill the messenger here - I know you don't set the rules, and I'm aware of the longstanding policy that reserves this forum for the use of PvP thieving - but with the new game changes combined with the forum changes, you really need to get the powers that be to officially designate a forum and change that forum's FAQ to reflect said designation.

    Not sure why, but is there a reason, you haven't bothered to post in the other forums I suggested? If you have questions about Doom, go to the forums I have recommended and ask your question. There are posters there that may answer your questions. Here...not so much...la

    I can't answer for the other folks; for myself, I haven't posted in any of the other forums because I don't have a question. I was browsing the forums in general and was struck by the absurdity.

    I was simply responding to the posts that keep trying to preserve this forum as the sole province of player vs player thieves as opposed to any other kind of thief. It seems particularly pointless given the fact that there isn't any forum dedicated to any other kind of thief, and it is unlikely any such forum will be created given the fact that they recently put alot of effort into eliminating 'excess' forums.

    For the sake of argument, consider the two options you provided. What would happen if the folks in the Treasure Hunter forums adopted a similar 'elitist' attitude? After all, the focus of that forum isn't stealing of any kind - it's digging or fishing up treasure. Lockpicking is about the only 'thieflike' skill such a template would require. I cannot imagine a 'treasure hunter' template having much use, if any, for 'stealing'.

    How about 'rare collectors'? Again, the primary focus of said forum has nothing to do with stealing from monsters, or the use of the stealing skill; beyond that, the items one can now steal from monsters can hardly be considered 'rares' in the context of the discussions that go on there.

    Both of these forums seem far more unlikely than the 'thief' professions forum. It might be worth considering the possibility that with the new update, such a discussion might actually be of value to the community that has claimed this forum as home as well as those who wander in looking for 'pve pickpocketing' information; after all, it seems that a considerable amount of the items now obtainable from monsters could prove useful to the more daring 'PvP thief' set as well as their more docile PvM cousins.

    In the end, again, I acknowledge you aren't making the rules, you're just enforcing them...but I'd also like to suggest that this is perhaps not so black and white as stealing chests or stealing doom artifacts is.
