    Does anyone happen to have a list of items with mods to thieving skills? For example, Shadow Dancer leggings, Burglar's Bandana, etc. I've been trying to find them all out but I'm failing. Any help would be awesome!!

    That list got me thinking about a possible oversight.
    How can we not have a pair of gloves that add to your stealing skill? Is it just me or does a pair of gloves seem like the obvious choice for a stealing artifact. Instead we get a stupid bandanna?

    Er... gloves make your fingers fatter and decrease your digital... no... manual... no... hmm... ...pertaining-to-fingers dexterity.
    Only reason i can guess anyone would use them for stealing would be to prevent finger prints-and there's no finger print identification yet-or if it's really cold outside... or you're trying to rob an Ice Elemental.

    (seems the english language has hijacked all the correct "finger" adjectives)

    My mind immediately went to the term "sticky fingers". Like when bull riders put rosin on their gloves to give them better grip on their rope. That could help those thieves get a better grip on their target for when they need to beat a quick retreat.

    A bandana prevents the sweat from trickling down into a thief's eyes, especially handy when dtealing something that may be booby-trapped:)

    The bandana is also handy to pull down on face to hide identity, similar to the Wild West stagecoach robbers:)

    Yeah, but have you ever seen a cowboy pickpocket? They are never successful because their gloves are just too damn big. That and their belt buckles always give them away.

    I always just assumed they had a hard time sneaking up on people because of the spurs jingling.
