Can't steal anything but power scrolls. Deco and Sigils are "stealing" not stealing. I mean at least PKs get insurance money. Please give my thief something to do in Felucca. Also being revealed from stealth when using steal (target cursor hasn't even appeared yet) is ridiculous.

    Stealing these days is lame.... used to be worth something, now u can't steal anything that a player decides he doesn't want to lose. The game has been dumbed down, and skills have been rendered useless. Its sad.

    They have already mentioned this is as good as it will get stealing from players.

    I have sent suggestions in for more stealing choices for months. I'd like to see something close to t-maps for thieves in towns. If I wanted to deal with monsters I'd play a samp.

    Stealing is still a hidden gem in the game for anyone willing to put the the time in. I've made up to 300m in a week in recent times on my thief. It requires a lot of patience though.

    Try incorporating ninjitsu into your temp if you're having problems getting away after the steal. I use jewels to get it to 120 and pop wolf form as soon as I have the item I'm stealing.

    Okay if you have a weapon skill and stealing you can used the Smugglers Edge knife to steal from monsters while you fight them.   You can also stealth up and just steal from the monsters.  The difference is the Smugglers gives you a chance at stealing special items.  Read the following link please:

    BTW, you do realize that stealables such as the Ruined Painting and the Incense Burner command prices of 50 to 80 MILLION gold.   I don't know what more you could want .
    Here are links to Dungeon stealables and puuuuleeeeeze don't tell me you've already stolen EVERY stealable in game.  Because my sister and I have played 16 years and sis is yet to steal a ruined painting or incense burner(its fairly new).

    Before you trash stealing try all the possibilities.  Also instead of trashing and bashing UO how about asking people to HELP you learn stuff.  I play Legends along with my real life sister.  We are happy to help returning players.  I don't mean to be rude but if you are going to continually post bashing UO there is ANOTHER forum that embraces that sort of thing.  That is why Mesanna created this forum so players wouldn't be subjected to so much bashing and dealing with that site's flavor of the week Admins and Moderators.

    Trying looking at UO as a NEW UO instead of the UO you played in 1999.  I look forward to seeing you on Legends or on my next visit to Atlantic.   CIao Bella!

    but, @Luc_of_Legends , I don't think that's the kind of stealing the others in this thread mean. They don't count it as real stealing unless it's stealing from players.

    Stealing from players is fun, monsters with no actual consciousness.... not so much

    Those high priced stealables spawn every 4 months, so while they're nice ones, they're too few and far between. Stealing needs more of a tweak. Players absolutely hate to be stolen from so there's no fun there for anyone but the thief. That being said, there should be quests and NPC content for thieves to stay busy on. The High Seas revamp that may or may not ever come would be a good time to implement something for thieves. Maybe chasing down and scuttling certain ships and think sneaking aboard and snoop/steal for good items. These are all little things that would go a long way towards keeping the playerbase happy. It's not rocket science.

    Please make the Grizzled Mare a 5 slot mount, it's incredibly rare and deserves it.

    you can't have pleasure exist without pain, its the ying and yang, you need evil just as much as good. if evil gets nerfed, so does the fun. its pretty simple. without player interaction in these skillsets and playstyles, its not gonna be fun.

    Again, I suggest a t-map style thing where a thief could wander around and detect and steal hidden treasure bags. If the loot was properly adjusted to compensate the effort it would be fun and give players a chance to explore the unused lands.

    What I don't enjoy is having to equip a thief with skills to fend off monsters. UO has become based on fighting templates and high end loot.

    Those of us that prefer non combative play have long taken a backseat to those that grind the dungeons.
