[Stealing] So...what should I steal?

    I have been playing around with the new EC since I can't find my old UOAssist information. Now that I am close to understanding the differences as well as figuring out what type of template I will be running it's time to determine what's worth my time to steal.

    Now take into account that I will be playing Siege exclusively, and that foot traffic is minimal, I can't be too picky on the items I choose to make my own (or at least attempt to).

    I have been snooping around and see that weapons and armor have really changed from 6 years ago. Jewelry has changed too. What should I be paying attention to when scanning a pouch for items? At some point, I would only steal power and vanq weapons...is their an equivalent today?

    I'm sure +15 and +20 skill scrolls still hold some value and can be sold off a vendor fairly cheap.

    I know Siege has plenty of crafters running around, so I'm sure there will be recipes that will be hidden away for me to find...are they worth the time? I'm sure most crafters won't chase after me, but what the hell, why not make a few gold for an easy 1 stone item?

    Unfortunately, Siege still does have a Siege blessed item, so I guess I can pay attention to what people are blessing to get an idea, but I figured I would come here and ask those of you that are either still playing, or came back earlier than I did...la

    Oh, are ships still stealable? How about those new large ships? Do they come in a portable model like the old ships did? I know a lot of people on Siege kept them in the bank because they weren't blessed and were easy to steal, but there are a few of my old stomping grounds that people probably still use to launch ships...la

    Ships do still come in portable form, however I'm pretty sure they are blessed now.

    Someone's Dignity

    What is best in life?

    To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.

    Of course they would be...why would someone be forced to use their Siege bless or insurance to protect themselves from having to protect their stuff...UGH...la

    You'd think that by stealing someone's regs or pots that you had done it by the reactions by players over the years. LOL, and one of the primary reasons I've always played a thief...la

    Install UOAssist, launch it and log in. Then click the '?' - for to find your seed. Go to www.tugsoft.com and click the locate key link. It should then return the information for UOAssist.

    Biggest advantage of the new client.. People can't hide things under clutter in packs. The grid view reveals all!

    Yeah, I do like that. I always hated the palyers who would run around with a pack full of robes...then again, I would laugh at those who didn't know how to use them and their pouch or pack would be visible to anyone who tried to shift a robe or two around while snooping them...la

    My steal list is as follows.

    During a fight:

    1. Unblessed spellbooks
    2. Unblessed runebooks
    3. Regs, Pots, Eggs, Petals

    Every day business:

    1. Anything that looks good
    2. If nothing looks good, I'll take whatever they probably need the most at the moment and then sit back and watch the panic ensue.

    Crafted ones seem to be cheaper and unblessed.
