    WTH? 10 stone item and I can't get an RoT gain from it.

    I stole a 6 stone item from Dog earlier and got my gain, now, 20 minutes later, no dice.

    Steal an 8 stone item. The PvP thief forum has an FAQ..

    i thought it was as simple as skill / 10 so at 75 skill you need 7 stone object and at 80 skill you need 8 stone object. :)

    Thanks for the info y'all. This is very different from what I know of RoT. I've worked a lot of skills on Siege. One of the things I've come to realize over the years is that doing something way beyond your skill's capacity (e.g. EQ @ 80 magery) will usually trigger RoT gains regardless.

    Apparently, stealing is different.

    Okay stealing is *not* different.

    I had the same problem after loading up a packy with 7 stone items from my "save for unravelling" pile...

    Not a single gain.

    Then I tried something different (which I got from Rico's post, ty Rico)

    I targetted the item instead of random steal (which is what got me in to RoT)

    Bingo!

    So, on a lark, I loaded a pair of ringmail leggings (15 stones) into the packy and target stole them on my next scheduled gain.

    Bingo!

    So, you *don't* have to have items within your range to gain during RoT, you simply can't do a random steal over a targetted one.
