Where are some NPC thief trainers ?

    I have only found one so far, in Cove, and he appears bugged (won't accept any gold for training, it just goes back to my pack), but I can't find any others. Anyone know where some NPC trainers are for lockpicking, remove trap, etc?

    The only NPCs I've known to train them are Thief Guildmasters.
    If there's a place where they consistently spawn, I don't know it. If I ever need one, I always have to run around the various cities until I find one (from what I can tell, only a few spawn, at random places in random cities).
     
  3. On Atlantic there is one between the New Haven moongate and the wooden parapet thing that leads into the city near the bank.
     
  4. On Catskills,the thief guildmaster seems to walk within the area of the Mage tower in New Haven.

    there is a thief guildmaster in every town.

    its just a matter of finding them since they constantlly wonder, and they even wonder out of town.

    i allways go to Cove since thats the smallest town and you can usually find them there fastest.

    There should be some kind of fel based training quest.

    Example: Location Brit. Thief takes a quest from a thief guildmaster to steal an item in town. Return the item to the guild master get 1-3 points in stealing.

    That way thieves can apply their skills while training and people can do some thief hunting in the same process.

    Training Stealing is mind numbing.

    I believe there is a building in Bucs den that is, or was, labeled the Thieves Guildhall. But there was never any Thief GM there.

    However, I always suggest checking out Skara Brae when looking for a Thief Guildmaster because that's where I always go and always find them. (However sometimes I had to switch facets to find one).

    I always suggest it because while it is my favorite town, it is the smallest city that is linked to by a moongate and thus the easiest to get to.

    In case you may not be aware, the thief guildmaster always has their name in yellow as they are invulnerable and will appear as such: Bob the Thief Guildmaster.

    ON LA, at least, there is one on South Jhelom that's always hanging around the Theater. As the island's teleporters can't be used by NPCs, he's not likely to wander too far...
