    This story begins as any other story. Someone notices that Harrower has been popped. To cut a long story short: we tried to raid, but failed since we were outnumbered by 3 to 1.

    So, I take my thief to the dungeon Wrong facing a few mages throwing down Paralyze and Poison Fields. I skillfully maneuver between the gaps in the fields using Shadow Jump and proceed to advance to the second level of the dungeon.

    Harrower was completely blocked by Greater Dragons clawing, roaring and casting spells on this Super Champion. Suddenly I got revealed and needless to say I died in 2.13seconds. I luckily managed to find a healer outside of the dungeon and proceeded to sneak back in.

    By the time I got in Harrower was already dead and the area was filled with gold - and greedy players picking up the gold. This time I managed to sneak up on someone who had dealt damage to Harrower. I proceeded to snoop this person and I noticed a +20 Stats scroll. I stole it, I ran, I used the scroll and I hid.

    Overwhelmed by this success I confidently went back and proceeded to snoop the same person again. And what did I see... a +25 Stat scroll. I was just about to snatch it away from him, but that bugger moved and hid himself. I got revealed and had a couple of good ol' G'Dragons clawing my face off.

    After the theft I made a note for myself: "Check all the scrolls before making your move, stupid."

    Well, maybe next time.

    Patience is important. Even when your only talking about half a second it can seem like a LONG time to waist looking at a detail.

    It is always a tough question. Look to quick and you may miss an item- look to long, and you may miss the steal.
