Menaphite Thugs can be found at the southern end of Pollnivneach. They will always reward 137.5 Thieving experience and 60 coins for each successful pickpocket. They are the lowest ranked members of the Menaphites, a gang which controls the southern half of Pollnivneach and is constantly at war with the Bandits. They are commonly used by players to train the Thieving skill because upon completion of The Feud quest players may use a blackjack to knock them out and then pickpocket them (up to 260,000 experience can be gained per hour this way). This requires a Thieving level of 65 or higher. Knocking out and pickpocketing one is a requirement for the Hard Desert Diary.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • It is advised to use the 'Game' chat and complete your second pickpocket immediately after seeing the following message: 'You pick the Menaphite's pocket.' as the timing for pickpocketing is more precise than watching game animations.
  • When interrupting an unsuccessful knockout by pickpocketing, it is advised to have 28 Coin pouches (pickpocketed from Menaphite Thugs) in your inventory or a full inventory using inventory blocking food such as wines, stews, pies, etc. in order to eliminate the possibility of getting stunned by the Menaphite Thug while pickpocketing. The time saved from avoiding being stunned will significantly increase experience rates.
  • When caught trying to knock out, you should immediately try to knock thug again until you succeed. This way you won't get into combat.
  • Noted jugs of wine can be un-noted at the bar for 1-3 coins each
  • Gloves of silence, dodgy necklace, and the Arceuus spell Shadow Veil have no effect when pickpocketing or black jacking Menaphite Thugs.
