    In chests,crates ,barrels and golden boxes in shops that have a blacksmith,tailor or carpenter in Felucca.

    You might need to clean out whats in them and wait for a respawn.. and watch out for the guards! ;)

    I can't confirm or denied those if they just as single shop. Only if the cobbler (Provisioner) or Tanner where part of a tailor,smith or carpenter shop i did find refinements in the boxes.

    I can confirm you can get the refinements at a shop with just tanner NPCs in it. I'm slightly fuzzy on whether or not I got refinements out of shops with just cobbler NPCs in them or if the shop also had a provisioner in it.

    Shame thieves don't need to be a member of the Thieves Guild to steal from crates, otherwise you could make some good money farming the farmers :(

    Thieves guild members can't give counts so you wouldn't need to be red...

    That's what I hate about the patch notes. EA adds a great way of explaining everything but the location of this NPC--or even the fact that the NPC exists--is no where to be found in the patch notes. Also the bit about refinements only being in Fel towns. I guess pirates indeed provide the best bounty.

    I don't mean to turn your thread, I'm just saying a "guide" should not be a discovery, it should be a guide, lol...you know. Finding wild turkeys we can tame, yeah, keep that a discovery.

    I've decided to make a thief, but I doubt that I have the cojones (I'm a girl for one thing) for stealing from other players, so I need template advice. Of course I might have moments of exceptional bravery so suggest a template that will keep me alive etc. Also, will I need snooping? Ok, here's your chance to give me help. I'm impressed by the idea of getting those new refinements, stuff in chests, blah blah....Thanks in advance!!!

    Here is the results of 3 hours of pirating.10 Ships Plundered. Plundering Merchant and Orc ships without Pirate Captains.

    Only noted what seems most important to loot to me. Various fruit/vegetables and food . Wool/Cotton also looted but not in detail on this report.

    - 1 Light Ship Cannon
    - 1 White Cloth Dye Tub
    - 13 Liquor Smuggler!s Cache
    - 38 Refinements (All kinds)
    - 50 Copper Wires
    - 1280 Normal Leather
    - 540 Spined Leather
    - 370 Horned Leather
    - 2930 Barbed Leather
    - 1300 Normal Boards
    - 1400 Ash Boards
    - 50 Yew Boards
    - 150 Bloodwood Boards
    - 125 Heartwood Boards
    - 1925 Oak Boards
    - 900 Iron Ingots
    - 399 Dull Copper Ingots
    - 264 Shadow Ingots
    - 192 Copper Ingots
    - 206 Bronze Ingots
    - 78 Gold Ingots
    - 774 Agapite Ingots
    - 799 Verite Ingots
    - 571 Valorite Ingots

    At the end i used up about 25 Fuse Cords,Heavy Cannon balls, Heavy Powder Charges and 3 Matches.
    We shot more then those 25 but we did gain back a lot of the cannon stuff from the ships.

    To me Pirating is profitable but its up to each of you separate how to interpret these numbers.

    Was that in Trammel or Felucca Frarc? Where is a good spot to find ships?

    This is Trammel and the best spots i found is north and west of moonglow near ice island. In EC and with saying Start Tracking and Stop Tracking they fairly easy to find. The best tactic to fight merchant and orc ships without Pirate captains is when you find them is to turn your ship off screen to align with them and then put your ship next to it. (When you turn your ship when the other ship is on screen they wil start to move) Then after you killed all the crew, shoot the other ship.This will avoid a lot of damage to your own ship!

    I heard Tokuno has some nice spots too but i still need to check that out.
