    Reckon I'll get us started. I hope to see more submissions now that summer is over!

    I've been tooling about on my newbie Atl thief, recently. Headed down to Despise and found me a few blues working the spawn. Now typically I prefer stealing from enemy factioners...but this worked.

    That Vasilius was pulling in scrolls every minute, so I felt I should force my offer to hold 'em for him.

    After stealing my first four, Vasilius kindly asked for his 1.0 Parry back. I'm in it for the fun, these days, so what the hell. I handed it back. Lol. Went and banked the first three, came back for more. I only got one more before the Baracoon popped up, and a bunch of red CoM raided.

    Unable to help myself, I gave myself away to the newcomers by stealing their faction bandies. What can I say, they have perty colors! Deciding my safest bet would be the Star Room, I was disappointed when they chose to take the long run out of the dungeon with their powerscrolls. Ah well. Cowards. Hah. :danceb:

    It was no 120 or +25 theft, but heck, maybe it'll encourage one of you to post something better! Total worth of 5 scrolls, just under 2 mil (at a minimum).

    Lake Superior. I was at Yew Gate, waiting for a fellow thief to show up and this brilliant mark appeared.

    I figured I'd snoop him openly and watch him go running from the gate.

    Unfortunately, this guy was not much of a pvper. He had no intention of leaving the guard zone despite being a gargoyle with a dragon.

    As a result I discovered a 110 scroll tucked away in his bag. I helped unburden his pack a bit, by removing the 110 scroll.

    What happened next is what every thief wants to see. The mark had hidden a 120 power scroll under the 110, and he wasn't leaving the vicinity.

    So I helped myself to that too. After that, he didn't have anything else worth taking and I got bored and left.

    Ah, I just love it when great marks like that show up at Yew gate of all places. Hah. Nice guard-zone nab!

    mmm sounds like my guildmates minus me. I presume the red com members were of the CoW guild?

    Both were stolen from the same guy... I also stole some enhanced bandies from those around the gate.

    Hah, righteous! EC theft, for the win :p :danceb:

    Omnius...I'm not sure if they were CoW. I'm still a newbie on Atl, haven't even been played there enough to GM a skill. Lol.

    It has a few benefits, like oh, they can't hide stuff by stacking for example. Also if you do grid view packs, it's easier to do a quick scan over their stuff.

    I've been considering it for that suit-switching function. That is nifty! That'd be very useful to a thief; being able to instantly switch gear to suit the situation. Unfortunately my system can only run EC for about 10 minutes before it eats all the memory.

    I've never heard of a suit switching option... but I just came back to UO myself so I am missing a lot of info lol

    As for its blurriness... it isn't that blurry but the screen pics were for some reason.

    You make separate macros for each suit, takes the EC about .1 seconds to swap all the gear when you hit the macro. For someone watching your paperdoll it looks like you've instantly switched everything, it's crazy fast.
