Thieves Skills

Thieves Tools: They can be found on loot corpses or purchased from some specific NPCs, used to help the character unlocking a locked lock (chest, door, etc). Thieves Tools are not used nor considered for traps disarming.

Unlock Locks:
  • Unlocking chests will provide some XP based on the difficulty CD, but chests can't be manually re-locked.
  • Unlocking doors won't provide any XP, but doors can be manually re-locked.
  • You can't attempt to unlock something that requires a key!
Disarm Traps:
ALL traps, both from placeables or on the ground will re-spawn after some time.

Pickpocket:
Pickpocket can be executed almost everywhere, there are some areas with restrictions though, like most temples. (Basically, it won't work into any NON-PvP area)

To start Pickpocketing, just use the Pickpocket Skill against your target:
  • Once the target is selected, if you are out of combat, a conversation appears, and you have to select if you want to try to steal gold or items (see down here on this page for specific rules and limits).
  • Once selected, your character will start to move towards the target
  • When the target is reached, a progress bar will appear for a few seconds, showing you how long the theft will take.
  • If you are in combat, you automatically try to steal from the target (without choosing what to steal), but with a higher DC.
Pickpocket attempt:
Attempt is made using your Pickpocket skill + d20, against target's Spot Skill + d20 + other modifiers:
  • if your target is the same as your last target,  DC increased by +5
  • if your target is already an enemy,  DC increased by +5
  • if you are already in combat while performing the PP action, DC increased by +10
  • if your target is already in combat,  DC decreased by -10
  • if you are on stealth mode while performing the PP action,  DC decreased by -5
  • if your target is on detect mode, DC increased by +5
  • if your target can see you, DC increased by +10
  • if your target can't see you, DC decreased by -10
  • if your target can hear you, DC increased by +5
  • if your target can't hear you, DC decreased by -5
  • if your target is in an outside area, during night, without darkvision and true see, DC decreased by -5
  • if your target is blind while performing the PP action, and doesn't have true see, its Spot skill is set to ZERO
Then:
  • If you are caught, your character will perform a NOT skippable animation, and the target is notified and you are instantly set as hostile.
  • If you are not caught, no one will be notified, and you will try to steal what you have selected in the conversation.
  • If you are caught, but you have failed the DC for less than 10%, you can still attempt to complete the theft
Limits:
Maximum Gold that can be stolen with 1 attempt: 1000 gp.
  • if your Pickpocket skill is at least 40 (pure skill), you can steal x5 gp
