    I'd like a little feedback on a template I've been working up. I'm shooting for a doom rares thief. Basically the idea is drop into doom, snatch up a few items and get back out with the bare minimum of combat. I'd really apperciate some feedback on the template.

    Hiding - 100
    Snooping - 100
    Stealing - 100
    stealth - 100
    Fencing - 100
    Tactics - 75
    Anatomy - 80
    Healing - 65

    Str - 105
    Dex - 125
    Int- 20

    This template is going to serve 2 roles, doom thief and pvp thief. (Leaning 99.9% on the thief, and .1% on the pvp side of things) The whole idea with this character is to avoid combat as much as possible, but I still want him to be fairly effective in a fight if it comes down to that.

    I'd get rid of the snooping, fencing, and tactics, +20 scroll the stealing and stealth... perhaps add 100 lockpicking, remove traps, and 50 detect hidden to dungeon crawl locked chests... add magery or chivalry for recalling. Invisibility is always nice when your hiding check fails, and either one can replace healing & anatomy. This all just my opinion if you don't plan on any combat.

    I woudl keep fencieng, personally, as you can use a weapon to use the skill shadow strike in a pinch, you woudl not believe how many times shadow strike has gotten me out of really sticky situations latest caper snaging a 120 magery scroll and attacking the scroll holder with shadow strike adn takeing off. Snooping is a must for pvp/scroll stealing, and ninjitsu really helps as stealthing in certian animal forms allow you to move faster than you would on foot, also shadow jump will get you close to the mark.

    The template I am using:

    100 Stealing, have to rely on Shadow Leggings to get to 120 Stealing
    100 Hiding
    100 Snoop
    120 Ninjitsu
    80 Stealth with Shadow leggings and a neat 1/3 ring with LRC and +10plus Stealth, I am at 110+ Stealth
    120 Fencing for shadow strike
    100 Magery

    You can reduce Magery (can't remember the min. skill requirement to never fail invisibility) and snoop to 90 and use the minor artie Bandana for 100 Snoop and put some skills for necro so that you can go into wraith form and walk through players in Fel but it's not really necessary.

    This is the template I use:

    Hiding 100
    Magery 100
    Meditation 100
    Ninjitsu 115
    Stealing 100 - 120 with the Shadow Dancer Leggings
    Stealth 85 - 105 with Shadow Dancer Leggings
    Evaluate 100

    Str 105
    Dex 90
    Int 65

    20% LRC Bandana
    Pendant of Magi
    Ring of Elements
    Bracelet of Health
    Shadow Dancer Leggings
    Rune Beetle Carapace
    Stitchers Mittens
    Totem of the Void
    20% LRC Sleeves

    All in all LRC is 100% so I don't need to carry regs and weigh myself down. I use the Rune Beetle Carapace for the MR 3 and LMC and mana increase. Most of this stuff is self explanitory why I use it.

    I don't pvp with this character though I am in the thieves guild and I do have snooping on a stone. I do run Protection so I do not get interrupted when trying to cast invis.

    I use Ninjitsu primarly for wolf form though I do occationally use it for the shadow jump. If you have ever stealthed around doom before you know its a HUGE place and takes forever....in wolf form you walk at a run pace and run at a mounted pace....great for those quick get aways.

    Anyway this is what I run....goodluck with yours. I hope you steal many great things :p
