Thieving[edit | edit source]

Trained as normal. Bank the cakes obtained from the bakery stall in Ardougne, they are useful for low-level questing and healing at Wintertodt. At level 20, players can make a bit of starting cash by stealing silk at the silk stall and later selling them to the silk merchant for 60 coins each.

Obtain the rogue equipment as soon as possible. It is recommended to have something else to do at the bank whilst waiting for run energy to restore (such as cooking fish, blowing molten glass), or opt for using energy potions (or strange fruit, as this can be obtained from fruit stalls) for more efficient runs.

After completing Death to the Dorgeshuun, players can pickpocket H.A.M. Guards for H.A.M. keys and open the chests in the H.A.M. Store room, which contain coins, gems and jewellery. This is a way to obtain an amulet of strength or an amulet of power without the Crafting requirement and is a decent moneymaking option at lower levels. Wearing a full set of H.A.M. robes will not reduce the chance of failure when pickpocketing the guards as they only reduce the chance of being kicked out of the hideout, which cannot happen while in the store room. The player will loot double keys if wearing full rogue equipment.

Blackjacking bandits in Pollnivneach has few requirements and it is one of the best ways to make starting cash for Managing Miscellania. Pickpocketing Knights of Ardougne is a slower but easier alternative at higher levels and it makes slightly more money than blackjacking, but this requires completion of the medium tasks in the Ardougne Diary, which in turn requires having a mith grapple.

Hardcore ironman chat badge.png Hardcore Ironmen are advised to wear a ring of life when blackjacking in case they disconnect after failing a knock-out.

Pickpocketing gems from the TzHaar-Hur in Mor Ul Rek is one of the best methods should one plan to train Thieving past level 99. Doing so yields up to 250,000 experience an hour, whilst also banking up to 60,000 banked Crafting experience an hour. Completion of the hard tasks in the Ardougne Diary and wearing the Thieving cape is required for this method.
