    Good to see new thieves around. Been trying to keep up with this thread although I haven't been playing much lately. I did however have probably my best steal yesterday when I successfully stole a Naegling from a tamer whose name I won't reveal as they were killing elves / a dark knight. I'm still freaked out to be honest. Sorry man lol

    Epic steal. That's the kind of item you stick on your fireplace mantel to remind you every day how awesome of thief you are.

    Congrats

    It's good to be back and see people frequenting the dungeons and such. After looking for pals to steal from and coming up empty in places like Destard:

    destard-1_e.png

    While dragons and drakes were being slain, I must have been late to the party as Tracking indicated 0 activity nearby.

    At Skara Bank, I found an unfamiliar character so decided to approach:

    doom-1_e.png

    After doing a bit of snooping, I initially only notice the arachnid doom force longsword. As I reviewed the video recorded, there was also a power daemon dismissal scimitar. I'm unsure which one is more valuable and was too fixated on the doom weapon and the guards to care for going for a larger prize.

    I think my friend stepped on me as he started to run around a bit but eventually went back to the bank with the weapons still in his main backpack. It was time, the guards on both sides of me were turned away and I went for it:

    doom-3_e.jpg

    Shockingly, success. Now what to do as a thief with such a weapon? :s

    Ran into this door. Was hoping a Balron would open it for me. I remained patient although they were well into the fight with a bonded dragon or two dead from battle:

    InnocentCrafter ain't never scared tho. We kick tha door in and make our presence known. Our tamers were too busy trying salvage this battle versus the battle mage elf to notice as nobody ever used Reveal to find out who opened that door!

    kickthadoorin.png

    Initially only 1 coin from all this mess

    3-holidaycoin.png

    More monsters die and I notice the pile getting larger :)

    4-coins3.png

    After making sure I am close enough to my target due to so much movement going on, I steal hard earned coins away from these 2 tamers and go to deposit my stolen booty.

    5-gatetravel.png

    But wow, are these boys pissed?! Did you know they followed me to my home and killed me? Pick on someone your own size! Thankfully I was able to hit my organize agent bind to deposit these coins into a pouch on my doorstep. In the heat of battle, I have been known to forget this (Don't say anything Elvis K*P)

    Very nice, Seba. Gratz.

    You didn't do anything peculiar. Some people just rage faster than others and I am not very surprised that they follow and attack you. Did they flame you, though? :rolleyes:

    I liked your story Seba, I especially like that the thief gets to ban someone from their home this time around.

    Hurray for UO:R!!

    What a surprise, tamers arrive within 5 minutes of me waiting around.

    The dark elf knight died very quickly, had to move in faster than I expected. Clean kill for sure.

    Owner moves the Xmas scroll from one part of the pack to another before I can target. Starts gating away:

    But I manage to snag it and cast a gate of my own

    "Nice" as I'm simultaneously Mind Blasted in the face! It's too late though, I've already deposited the scroll into my stash of other stolen goods.

    No, they didn't say anything. This person did though after 1 h-coin... :{ Didn't screencap the part where they said I will be robbed.

    O'Malley the legitimate businessman was making his rounds, checking the towns and dungeons. I noticed alot of spawn in despise early this morning, someone left a champ going. Checked despise later on to find a bunch of the folks from the dynamite guild hanging around. I watched the red skull candles slowly line up along the altar, and after what seemed an eternity (probably 25 minutes) of hiding in the shadows I made my move.

    I have banked already a big stack of gold. When I hit that recall button to return to the loot feast I realized the plats in my backpack. I thought "ah no problem I will just bank them with the next stack". 15 sec later they were gone... Damn!

    It happens so quickly.

    1.jpg

    Ah, more dark elf farming

    2.jpg

    A platinum coin already? Notice the distance. Was able to last target the coin from here

    3.jpg

    With so much running around, they eventually run into the brick wall of me hidden with a full stamina bar, which is also the time I steal the coin and escape

    Another interesting story: 2 thieves, 1 victim:

    Eventually one of us trips over the other

    After a sloppy entrance into Shame, I find myself near 2 players slaying the local Blood Elementals.

    1.jpg

    The two make quick work of the creatures by making them fight each other and using a slayer ruin weapon

    2.jpg

    I manage to sneak up to both of them during the heat of battle and notice a level 5 treasure map. Since it wasn't important enough to bank, I decided to take it off their hands and put it to some good use.

    Cheers UOR

    Hauled ass into this moongate in Vesper

    2.jpg

    Where I find @Ron Jeremy scouting the map for more elves while his tamer makes quick AFK work of the elf in front of him.

    3.jpg

    His pack of 4 nightmares chase down the fleeing dark elf off the screen which gives me a bit more time to escape than I had originally planned. 2 Holiday coins drop, are stolen, and I too flee the scene:
