    Last week i was getting exodus keys and ingredients, now i'm getting small piles of gold and thats it. I've stolen from well over 100 zealots the last 2 days and gotten nothing but gold piles. Last week I was getting about 1-3 keys and hour along with ingredients. Anyone else getting anything besides gold lately?

    All I have ever gotten is gold, but then again, I don't have snooping.

    do you have to steal a targeted item? is that why you need snooping? do you just snoop them until you find something good?

    No you can't snoop them you just steal and target the zealot. You will get a random item. I got a full set of keys from them last night. So they are still available.

    So do you NEED snooping skill to be able to steal from zealots?

    Even if you can't/don't snoop them?

    I ask because one player told me he stole an alter and got an eye of trav by stealing and he didn't have snooping on his character.

    My thief has 120 steal and I have stolen from around 500 now and only ever got 2-400 gold off each.

    I have totally given up bothering.

    Can steal without snooping but then you only get gold.

    If you wear the burglar's bandana you have a little snooping, also humans have some snooping with JoAT . That could give a small chance.

    I have been really left dry on a killer the last four runs. I wonder if a load of thiefing has an effect on a killers drop rate.

    No. The keys don't come from the same mobs. Stealing only works on Zealots, killing only works on drones, sentinels and juggernauts or squires, knightas and champions.
    You can't get a key by killing a zealot and you can't get a key by stealing from a drone etc.

    Sweet. "Gotta love that RNG!" Now the Origin store needs to sell that above the UO symbol on a jersey.
