    Is there a base real skill level needed to steal artifacts? I know you can get up to 70 points in stealing off items, but there is no point is doing so if you need to have gm real stealing to steal artifacts. I've looked for the answer but am not finding it posted anywhere.

    You Need At Least 110 Stealing To Steal Any Of The Artifacts But It Does Not Have To Be Real Skill You Can Use Items To Bring You Up To This Level ie Ring Brac Shadow Dancer Leggings

    Actually minimum skill is GM, but you're going to fail a lot. All the doom decorative stealables have weight of 10 stones, you need 10 skill per stone to steal an item. So a 10 stone item requires minimum 100 skill. My thief is only in the low 70's real skill, but with items I have him at 120 for stealing from dungeons.

    There used to be a real skill component, early on, but somewhere along the line it was reduced or eliminated.

    Black Sun is right... you only NEED 100 skill to steal any dungeon stealable, but the chance at GM is only about 1%, but 100% at 120. There is no required base skill, only adjusted total skill.
