# Thieving

Thieving

Thieving is used to pickpocket GP and items. Each Thieving attempt takes 3 seconds.

Thieving can be done with Offline Progression if the success rate is at 90% or above.

## Mechanics

### Success Rate

The base success rate of pickpocketing is 57.5%. This is increased by 0.7% for every level in Thieving the player has above the target's level requirement, and is further increased by $\frac{1}{400}$ or 0.25% per level the player has for the target. This chance is capped at a maximum of 95%.

Players can go beyond the 95% success rate cap in two ways:

• provide +$\frac{1}{20}$ or +10% success rate as long as they have charges.
• Reaching 99 Mastery means that any pickpocket attempts on that target will be successful.

Two other things may influence the success rate but however will not go above the 95% soft cap, those are:

• provides +$\frac{1}{20}$ or +5% success rate. (Can be acquired through Combat)
• Master pool 25% checkpoint provides +$\frac{1}{10}$ or +10% success rate. Check Thieving#Mastery Unlocks for more information.

Although it is possible to see a success rate higher than 100% when using Thieving Gloves, going beyond 100% success rate does not provide any actual benefit.

### Loot

Successfully pickpocketing a target will always award the player with GP up to the Max Coins of the target. There is also a $\frac{3}{4}$ or 75% chance to receive an item from the target's loot table.

In addition to the rewards for the specific target being pickpocketed, successful attempts also have a chance to reward the player with two rare items in addition to the normal loot:

has a $\frac{1}{120}$ or 0.83% chance of being received on any successful pickpocket. Although the item itself is useless, it can be sold for  4,000.

has a $\frac{1}{10,000}$ or 0.01% chance of being received on any successful pickpocket. When worn, it provides a $\frac{1}{10}$ or 10% chance to double loot acquired from or Thieving.

It is possible to receive loot, a , and a all from the same action. If the quantity of items received is multiplied due to either a potion or equipment effect, the number of rare items received will also be increased, however the chance to multiply items is only rolled if normal loot is also received from the same action.

Loot can be multiplied in three ways: Gentle Hands Potions can be used to provide a $\frac{1}{20}$ upto $\frac{1}{4}$ or 5-25% chance to double the quantity of items gained on a successful pickpocket. can provide +$\frac{1}{20}$ or +5% chance to double items gained through the Rock Climb obstacle course. Equipment items can also provide a separate doubling effect (currently, the items/skills that provide a chance to double loot are the , Master tier Slayer gear and ). All the bonus mentioned stack additively.

### Failure

Failed pickpocket attempts will stun the player for 3 seconds and deal damage to them up to the target's Max Hit; damage dealt this way can be reduced by any damage reduction provided by Equipment. Damage taken while Thieving is potentially lethal, although this damage can be offset by consuming food manually, or automatically with the Auto Eat upgrade.
