    Pickpocketing Ardougne knights can yield good amounts of gold especially with Rogue equipment. A knight has to be trapped inside the trapezoid-shaped house in the north-east corner, north of Ardougne Baker's Stall. to optimise Thieving experience. To do this, the player should attack him once, go inside the house to lure him, and close the door behind him. A player with a dragon spear can use its special attack to aid in luring. Once he's inside, the player can lock him outside the room and log out and back in to reset aggro. After he's trapped, players should be courteous and keep the gate closed. Stand north of the knight in this location, as standing to the east or west of the knight for any extended time will cause the knight to be trapped on one tile, forcing it to despawn, then respawn in his original spawn point outside the house.

    Alternatively, hop worlds in the southern Ardougne bank to find someone splashing a knight. Worlds 378 and 302 are unofficial worlds often used for this by clans.

    When using Shadow Veil 600 cosmic runes, costing 91,800 coins, are required per hour if at level 50, or 300 (45,900) at 99. Shadow Veil will increase actions per hour by skipping the stun effect resulting in more Thieving experience.

    If low on health, players can steal some cake from the Baker's stall in Ardougne. Otherwise, players will need to use conventional food to restore Hitpoints. At 95 Thieving, food is completely unnecessary since the player will no longer fail.

    If suiciding, Ardougne Teleport runes are necessary. The player dies and teleports back to Ardougne and resumes pickpocketing, repeating the process.

    At 95+ Thieving it is possible to gain 253k xp per hour and an accompanying 300,000gp per hour with full rogue outfit.
