IntroductionThieving is a members only skill where you can pickpocket characters all around RuneScape, steal from different stalls, lockpick locked doors and steal from chests around the RuneScape World. Thieving is a relatively popular skill, and is especially popular amongst farmers who pickpocket Master farmers for seeds.

PickpocketingWhen pickpocketing, all you have to do, is right click on the character you want to pickpocket, and select "Pickpocket". An exception is the Master Farmer, where you just can click on him.
If you're successful, you will get a loot and some experience. However, if you're caught, you will be stunned for a few seconds and be hurt.

Herb (14 different seeds), Belladonna, Limpwurt, Poison Ivy, Watermelon, Jangerberry Bush, Cactus, Wildlood, Potato, Asgarnian Hop, Woad, Strawberry, Onion, Yanillian Hop, Nasturtium, Marigold, Barley, Rosemary, Jute, Tomato, Hammerstone Hop, Redberry Bush, Cabbage, Sweetcorn, Krandorian Hop, Dwellberry Bush, Cadavaberry Bush, Mushroom Spore
*** Even though the dwarf trader will only deal a small amount of damage, you will also be attacked by level 86 guards, even if you're still stunned. You can pay the director of your company like you did in The Giant Dwarf to stop them from attacking you for 10 minutes.
Stealing from StallsCharacters are not the only things you can steal from. There are also stalls in some cities around the RuneScape world. After you have stolen from a stall, you will either have to wait until the items are back, or move to another stall.
But stealing from stalls isn't that easy. You have to watch out for the stall owner and guards, paladins, heroes, etc. If the stall owner catches you, he/she will only be yelling and you will be unsuccessful. However, if a guard, paladin or hero sees you stealing from stalls, you will be attacked.

LockpickingAll around the RuneScape World, you will find doors that are locked. If you're lucky, you may be able to picklock them to open them.
Some doors requires a Lockpick, which can be obtained from fellow players or by pickpocketing Rogues or Desert Bandits. Anyway, the success rate is higher if you have Lockpick with you.
Tip: Hold down the Shift-key when you're clicking on the map link to open it in a new window.

Stealing from ChestsThieving from chests can give a good profit, but they're more dangerous than other ways of thieving. If you don't take care when thieving from chests, hidden traps may hurt you. To find the traps, simply right-click and select "Search for traps", and your character will find the trap and disarm it, if your level is high enough.
This is not the only thing that can hurt you. When you're thieving from chests, you may get a poisonous gas randomly. It will poison everyone standing close to the chest, and can only be cured by Anti-potions (or by waiting, if you don't get killed). So when thieving from chests, you should have some antipoison with you.
Since there's a long respawn time, you won't gain much XP by thieving from chests, but you make a good profit by thieving the Blood Rune Chest or the Paladin Chest.
|Chest location||Level||XP||Thieved Items||Respawn Time||Map|
|Ardougne (x2)||10||7||10gp||7 sec||Picture|
|Ardougne (x2), Relekka||28||25||3gp, 1 Nature Rune||8 sec||Picture|

Lure and K.O.After you've completed The Feud (level 30 thieving needed), there are new ways to steal from people in the city of Pollnivneach.
Get a Blackjack; either an Oak Blackjack (obtained during the quest) or buy a Willow Blackjack from the trader outside the Kebab Shop for 600gp. Wield the blackjack and choose a person to thieve:
• Villager (level 3)
• Bandit (level 41, level 56)
• Menaphite Thug (level 55)
Right-click, and select "lure". You will tell the person to follow you. Lead the person to a place out of sight (out of the city or behind a building), and right-click, this time you select "Knock-out" (be sure to wield the blackjack). if you're successful, you will knock down the innocent person, and you will be able to pickpocket him/her. If you fail, you will be attacked.
Note that Villagers must be knocked out before pickpocketing. Bandits and thugs can be pickpocketed normally, but you will earn extra XP by knocking them out first.
If you're caught by a Bandit or Menaphite Thug, you will lose 50 life points. If a Pollnivneach Villager see you're trying to knock out the Bandit or Thug, you will lose 40 life points.
Pickpocket & knock-out info is shown in the table below.
|Name||Needed level||XP for K.O.||Pickpocket XP||Loot|
|Bandit level 41||45||10||65||50 gp|
|Bandit level 56||52||10||84||50 gp|
|Menaphite Thug||65||20||137.5||50 gp|
