Lessons in boredom

    So I'm watching a movie and bank-sitting tonight.
    After 30 mins of no marks, I decide to add 17 mandrakes to my ever growing reagent collection.

    I fail on a 2 stone grab with 110 stealing, get whacked.
    I res, get my corpse, and am gray.

    10 seconds later, someone goes to the bank with a 115 ninja scroll and a 110 stealth scroll. I grab the ninja scroll, perfect success, and attempt a getaway. Llama fails with 100 ninja. I get killed.

    Lesson learned.. never go for crappy steals because a decent mark might show up right afterwards.

    Nah I didn't give up, he banked it after taking his scroll back from my otherwise naked corpse. I would have cat-formed for healing after the res.. but I can't tell you how many times I've thought I was in llama form for a getaway and just changed into cat (Damn that gets me so mad at myself).

    Oh yeah, I've done that time upon times!

    Just make the steal, then I become a dog.:loser:

    It sucks.

    How often do you successfully steal in town, I failed like 5 times in a row in the Cove bank on a script miner. I was pissed.

    On Siege i'm assuming?

    I haven't played there lately, but it depends on how many players and NPCs are around.
    With your 110 Stealing you should be able to steal up to even 3 or 4 stones without getting noticed WITH npc's. Even more stones without them.

    What were your circumstances in Cove?

    I am on GL, this scripter was realling into the bank in the corner. I was trying to steal before he banked his ingots and gems.

    Thievery is fickle like that in the GZ..

    Fail stealing 1 stone with no one around,
    or succeed on 3x that weight with 3 npcs watching, lol.
