    I tried to steal a few items in Luna and I got owned everytime... does this mean I failed? Because it didn't show that i failed. Just some NPC callin' the guards and then ooOoOooOoOOOoOOoOO. My stealing is terrible, but some of those items were 2 stones and I tried like 5 times.

    Out of curiosity, have you joined the thieves guild? If not, that may be the reason you're getting guard whacked and you'll need to find a Thief Guildmistress NPC to join.

    If you get killed in the gz within 2 mins of your steal the item pops back into the victim's pack. That is the way that I remember it. Things could have changed, so don't quote me :)

    To join the Thief Guildmaster or Guildmistress NPC thieves' guild you must
    have 60.0+ skill points in Snoopying and Stealing. Else, you get GWed 100.0%
    of the time per attempt.

    How well do you steal from NPCs?

    You require no skills to join the theives guild on siege.

    I guarantee it.

    Also you dont get booted for killing people.

    Anyone on the shard can join at anytime

    As skills improve, failing lessens. Never quits, yet lessens with fewer fails. It IS worth the journey, if one has patience.

    Hmmm, not sure what it was. But it's all better now. I didn't change a single thing. I just waited a few hours and tried again and now it's workin'. I even got me a crappy test dagger as proof. lol

    Anyways, I am in the thieves guild and I have been since the day I joined Siege. I knew there was no time limit or skill requirement so I spent half of my 1k starting gold to join.

    Its the opposite righty. If you make a successful unnoticed steal it remains in the thief's pack for 2 mins.

    You need to be in a guild and tell it to guard you so it's green to you. If it's not, it's just some random packie that you're failing to steal from in front of the guards.

    Plus, Luna sucks.
