    Yes, the balms and lotions are 'specials' They're not all that rare tbh.

    To get the special drops you must steal from Champ spawn on any facet or from creatures in Felucca dungeons. I've not actually found that the target makes all that much difference but you can only steal once from each monster.

    Ideally choose one you can kill reasonably easily to get re-spawn.

    Personally, in Felucca, the main aim is to find a spot where I'm least likely to be found by a pk :D

    Thx for the Response !!
    So does this include any creatures in fel dungeons not just humanoid ?
    Ie could i theoretically obtain these specials from a mongbat if it were in a fel dungeon ?

    Also does this require gm theif or can a theif modified (ie 90 real +10 stealing ring) to GM be sufficient ?

    So far I've had items from: lich, lich lord, daemon, blood elemental, nightmare, kracken, earth elemental, air elemental, lizard man and dread spider.

    The ones I'm avoiding are gazers, stone harpies, stone gargoyles. Not because you can't get them from those, you can, but I found myself too often getting the 'you must be standing next to...' message because of them flying.

    I can't answer your other question, my thief was GM with shadow dancers to fill a 120 scroll before this publish launched. Sorry.

    I'm still hunting for my first rare item, but I have been successful in stealing from monsters (and getting gold) using jewels and SD Legs to get myself up to 120.


    Wait. You stole from a nightmare? There's only 2 places I can think of they would hide items, and I am not about to stick my hand in either of those places. You're a braver thief than I.

    If all you are after is the balms here is his secret (he posted in another thread)

    OAKS

    Get some positive Karma one your thief and go to Oaks, If its not started start it.

    Steal from the Shadow Whisps, they are an easy kill for a mage with eval and Lighting or ebolts - easy one shots

    Steal away they dont carry gold or other items so oyu get alot of nothings, every so ofton they have a body part that ti to heavy to steal.

    But the balms come along nicley sonce there are alot of targets and no real threat.

    I found that the slimes and giant rats give me at least one per 10. They are right there next to you and do next to no damage except poison. You can kill the slime with a fireball and the rats with a mindblast. I usually do it in despise, but sometimes out in T2A. Since I stealth around, I only steal from a few in one area killing them afterwards, then go to a different area. I rarely ever get pk'd. Good luck.
