Note: The listed profit rate is calculated at Thieving 99 while wearing full Rogue equipment (requires Agility 50 ) with completion of the Ardougne Diary (hard) while wearing the Thieving cape and casting Shadow Veil with Magic 99 . Players with lower thieving will be caught more often, and players with lower magic will consume more Cosmic runes per hour (up to 640 with the minimum Magic 47 ), both of which will reduce profit rate. The listed profit assumes 463 successful pickpockets per hour, seeing two teleport seeds roughly every 2.21 hours on average. At Thieving 85 it is possible to achieve 323 successful pickpockets per hour resulting in an average profit of 1,881,293.98 per hour, seeing two teleport seeds roughly every 3.17 hours.

Pickpocketing elves in Prifddinas gives a chance of pickpocketing crystal shards and enhanced crystal teleport seeds. Roughly 5% of the pickpockets will yield a crystal shard and 1/1,024 chance for an enhanced crystal teleport seed. Wearing the full rogue equipment will double the amount of shards and teleport seeds obtained on a successful pickpocket. The value estimate for the crystal shards assumes they are used for making divine super combat potions, requiring a herblore level of Herblore 97 , or Herblore 93 if boosting using botanical pies. The time required for making these is not counted in the estimated profit per hour.

At level 99 thieving, while wearing the Thieving cape and having at least the hard Ardougne Diary completed, the player will have a 47.5% chance for a successful pickpocket. This means that, if the player is wearing dodgy necklaces and using Shadow Veil, the maximum theoretical amount of pickpockets is roughly 498 per hour, but this does not include banking. At level 85 thieving with the hard Ardougne Diary completed, the player will have a 37.3% chance for a successful pickpocket, meaning that the maximum theoretical amount of pickpockets is roughly 347 per hour.

Players should attempt to trap Cirdan, or another elf close to the bank. As the movement of the elf is random, it can take some time for the elf to walk to the desired spot. Another option is for players to pickpocket an elf located near the player owned house portal in Prifddinas. This elf will never leave his house. The player can also make use of their ornate rejuvenation pool and the Redemption prayer for healing and extending thieving trips.

Players should consider bringing a partner or using world 378, which is the unofficial thieving world. With multiple people it is possible to block the elf from moving resulting in more pickpockets per hour.
