    ok so at the moment i have a nosy player on siege and he dosnt have much stealing 20 skill at best

    i was wondering about what skill do i need before i can steal a 1 stone or 2 stone item from a player with out always failing

    i may just get another lama and start training stealing with it and some junk in its bag

    dunno, i usually start stealing stuff at around 70


    tbh your best bet is to start a new char with 50 stealing, 20 - 50 is just annoying

    Yeah...

    1 stone items? I guess around 30-50. There was a formula is one of the 5 on friday's a long time ago. Stealing 1 stone without going grey is a different story...

    ...I failed that all the time with 85+.

    Make sure you take note of the location of the NPC's in the area.....they will get you guardwacked... less around means less chance of getting caught....

    Haha, that's where I make my living (inside the guard zone). My best to date are numerous 10 stone pet balls. Some I have gone grey, but not noticed and was able to get away without the guards being called. Most though, I do get unnoticed. There is a technique to do this, but it has taken years to perfect. Just remember macros are your friend...la
