    So I currently have 49.5 stealing and while in Felucca with my pack horse, only war forks (9 stone each) began to give me "Easy" on the Crystal Ball of Knowledge. Shouldn't it bee too hard for me?

    From this thread the sequence should be:
    shirt, 2 stones.
    robe, 3 stones,
    skirt, 4 stones, (Think i should be here)
    cloak, 5 stones, (or here tops)
    bronze shield, 6 stones,
    metal kite shield 7 stones,
    heater shield, 8 stones,
    war fork, 9 stones,
    lap harp 10 stones.

    I'm currently at 76.3 Stealing skill and I get the "Very Easy" message from the Ringmail Tunics...heavier stuff can't be stolen...gains are slowing down. Thoughts anyone?

    where are you? It's easier to steal if no one can see you.

    yup :) provided the pack horse is guarding you, you won't get guardwhacked. Though to be honest, I did my training using a bag at my feet in Bucc's den. Saved dragging a packy around. I only got pk'd once :D

    try apples. Last time I trained it I stole from piles of apples and pears, number in pile determined by the weight needed for the skill level.
