    Get a pack horse and load it with items with weights relative to your skill. You may have to have it guard you if you do it in town so you dont get guard whacked.. For smokebombs make a uo assist macro to use item type. Record macro, after u record using a smoke bomb right click on the use item line of the macro and click convert to use item type. After you finsish making the macro assign it to a key of your choice. If you use the EC i have no idea as i dont use it.

    dukarlo is right, you'll take a stack of items at least twelve stones and put it in a pack horse on a guilded character. You can also do this in Felucca with an unguilded character but you will go grey and risk gwhack inside GZ. I use 12 empty bottles. Then you'll follow this chart:

    Skill | Weight
    30 - 40 | 3 stones
    40 - 50 | 4 stones
    50 - 60 | 5 stones
    60 - 70 | 6 stones
    70 - 80 | 7 stones
    80 - 90 | 8 stones
    90 - 100 | 9 stones
    100 - 110 | 10 stones
    110 - 120 | 11 stones

    So for example, if you're at 35 skill, you would separate three bottles from the stack of twelve in your pack horses pack and steal them from the horse. Then, you take the bottles you have stolen, whether you failed, stole some of them, or stole all of them, and place them back into the ORIGINAL stack of 12 bottles. This will clear a timer on the bottles and allow you to gain from them again. Rinse and repeat. Once you hit 40 skill, you steal four bottles, so on and so forth.

    I would note that you really don't need to max stealing as long as you're willing to use the Shadow Dancer Leggings and the Burglar's Bandana. Especially if you aim at all to be a PvP thief.

    Max stealing has multiple benefits. If you steal from players your chance of going unnoticed will improve and in town that can mean not getting guard whacked. Line of sight also helps in getting noticed or not. Even if in the line of an npc' s sight the guards can be called but stealing skill is definitely part of the dice roll. Also the heavier an item the more chance you will fail and or go grey. Knowledge of line of sight and skill level are important. Also some of the heavier spaening stealables will be easier to nab at 120. There are a lot of good thief skill items in the game that are great to build a suit around. A snatch and grab thief definitely benefits from plus skill item, defense chance increase, hit point increase, and hit point regeneration. Think outside the box as far as mods on gear go. Lmc MR and many mods for other classes arent necessarily what's best for a true thief. If your playing a snatch and grab thief the idea is to be able to be very sneaky as well as to be able to survive.

    My template is as follows.
    120 wrestle
    120 stealing
    100 snoop
    100 hide
    120 stealth
    120 ninja
    100 detect
    60 necro
    I am human for jack of all trades tracking
    45 dci
    2/4 casting
    25
    137 hp
    18 hp regen

    Right, but I meant more like.. you can have stealing at 90 and use items to make up the difference to 120.

    Temp I run for my pvp thief:

    100 Ninjitsu (+20 from with ring and bracelet) (wolf form and shadow jump)
    100 Hiding
    90 Snooping (+10 from Burglar's Bandana)
    90 Stealing (+10 from bandana, +20 from shadow dancers)
    60 Stealth (+10 from stealth epaulets, +10 from Burglar's Bandana, +20 from Shadow Dancer Leggings, +20 from Royal Guard Investigator)
    60 Necro (wraith form)

    So in the end it ends up:

    120 Ninja
    120 Stealing
    120 Stealth
    100 Hiding
    100 Snooping
    60 Necro

    That leaves 220 skill points open for swapping but since I champ thief a lot I usually keep tracking and detect hidden in there, but can also sub in a weapon skill or wrestling for added defense.

    Suit is very basic minus artifacts. All just imbued pieces for max resists, 2/6 casting with mana increase and regen, and HP increase. Suit can be done without artifacts but you narrow your options with swapping skills that way. Also, I don't always run 120 stealth as 100 does me just fine. Harder to be passively revealed with 120 stealth though, I believe.

    Another thing I've found invaluable in this era of passive detect is the ninjitsu mastery. Shadow spell is awesome. I never get passively revealed when going in for the snoop using it.

    As far as real skill goes I wouldn't go below 90 at least in ninja and stealth because I'm under the assumption mastery effectiveness or at least the ability to use one is effected by real skill.
