    Ok,

    I got the Stealther pretty much up and running.

    I have

    Hiding(100)
    Stealth(100)

    Stealing(50)

    Magery(assume 100)
    Focus(100)
    Meditation(100)

    There needs to be 100 in some other skills that I am not remember as I project the stated template to be above 650 skill points, real.

    I asked about Poisoning after trying it on TC1. The replies were correct and I now understand how to use poison in this template.

    My question is in 2 parts.

    1) Is stealing really relevant (I am not big on being a thief and am rather apprehensive about investing in the skill). My Goal was to be able to go any where and mark runes etc.

    2) If I were to raise Stealing, how would I? Is there a guide? I think I pretty much looked here in Stratics and couldnt really find one.

    I am not going to steal from players, if I used it at all, it would be to steal spawns.

    Thanks that was what I was looking for.

    You know what class trains Poisoning? Would it be Alchemy or would it be Thief.

    Is the ability to steal something, say a Basket, determined by its weight? Or some other .... criteria.

    Poisoning in the old forums was under the Assasin forum.

    For stealing - if your looking to get any of the stealable arti's from doom,dojo,etc then u need stealing to be GM or better. Not much use for stealing nowadays outside of that, with insurance and passive reveal if you get within a couple of steps of anyone it has made this a fairly dead skill for trying to grab others stuff

    *Looks Embarrassed*

    While it was perfectly clear to me what I was asking ........

    I really meant what class can I get training in poisoining in game from? I seem to remember it was a Thief.

    Try training Poisoning from an Alchemist. I can't remember for sure, but that seems the most logical. If not then look for a thief.

    It's been a long time since I trained poisoning, but I think you are correct that thieves teach it. Look for a thief guildmaster. You generally get more points out of the guildmasters than the normal guys.
