    this was all posted by UO in the herald, I do wish more people on stratics would at lease clance at it once in a while.

    For Thieves

    Players can now steal various items from monsters:

    A given monster can be stolen from once in its lifetime
    Gold, bandages, gems, potions, scrolls
    Thieves with GM skills or higher have a chance at stealing rare items
    Seed of Life, Mana Draught, Gem of Salvation, Balm of Strength, Balm of Wisdom, Balm of Swiftness, Balm of protection, Stone Skin Lotion and Life Shield Lotion.

    Drop rate on stealables:

    GM Stealing: 2%
    100.1 to 110 Stealing: 5%
    110.1 to 119.9 Stealing: 8%
    120.0 Stealing: 10%

    Stealing Bonus based on monster fame

    For the purposes of stealing, a monster's fame is now scaled from 1 to 40 (previous fame levels 1 to 5). Level 40 being the equivalent of 30,000 fame points. The higher the fame level, the higher the stealing bonus.

    Stealing bonus by fame level:

    0 % below level 15
    1% below level 25
    2% below level 35
    3% below level 40
    5% at level 40

    So a thief with 120 skills stealing from a level 40 monster would have a 15% chance of obtaining a rare drop.

    Players cannot steal twice from the same monster
    Rare items only drop in Fel Dungeons and Champ Spawn areas (all facets)

    My hubby's thief has managed to steal a lot so far and has received even a gem from a kappa. But that's been the only low end creature that's done so. The rest he's gotten from higher fame creatures. weins post above shows the percentages. I think it's been pretty dead on from what he's done so far.

    Actually, Petra put this the Pub 57 info at the top of the forum and stickied it. It was there even before the forum went public :)

    and actually I read all of that before I posted. I guess through extremely bad luck I just was not managing to steal a rare. People kept posting about stealing from balrons so I got to thinking that maybe earth eles and ettins were too low. It does not mention what the lowest fame monster is, therefore I asked. It was answered for me very quickly by Salty Pete. Thank you :) I did not mean to upset so many people that felt it had been posted.

    Oh no no Akalabeth. Always feel free to ask. I think they were more just pointing to the information. Nothing bad on you.

    Best bet im guessing is whatever has the highest fame/easiest to kill ratio. Evil mage lords im looking in your direction.
