IMPORTANT: The listed profit rate is calculated at 94 ThievingThieving icon.png while wearing full Rogue equipment (requires 50 ThievingThieving icon.png and 50 AgilityAgility icon.png) with completion of the Ardougne Diary (hard) (requires 72 ThievingThieving icon.png, boostable). Players with lower thieving will not achieve this profit rate and should see the table below for their estimated profit.


Pickpocketing master farmers can yield good amounts of seeds for Farming. The real money-makers are Ranarr seeds and Snapdragon seeds (worth 45,839 and 63,862 respectively). These seeds are very rare (appearing every 1/302 and 1/2083 pickpockets) but make up 90.8% of the profit.

The master farmer, whether he's Martin in Draynor or not, has to be trapped inside the fence to optimise the Thieving experience. He moves on his own accord, so players will have to wait patiently to trap him. After he's trapped, players should be courteous and keep the gate closed.

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.

Profit varies enormously based off thieving level, greatly improving after certain milestones. At 50 ThievingThieving icon.png players can equip full Rogue equipment for guaranteed double loot, doubling profit. At 72 ThievingThieving icon.png players can complete the Ardougne Diary (hard) for an additional 10% pickpocketing boost. It is not recommended to thieve Master farmers for profit at low levels as there are much better money making methods out there. Below are some experience and profit estimates at certain levels.

At 38 thieving: Players should expect a pickpocketing success rate of 57.5% leading to 758 pickpockets per hour giving 32,607 ThievingThieving icon.png and 152,393 profit.

At 50 thieving: Players gain the ability to use Rogue equipment for guaranteed double loot. At this level while using the equipment they should expect a pickpocketing success rate of 64.7% leading to 943 pickpockets per hour giving 40,542 ThievingThieving icon.png and 378,960 profit.

At 60 thieving: Using full rogue equipment players should expect a pickpocketing success rate of 70.7% leading to 1129 pickpockets per hour giving 48,550 ThievingThieving icon.png and 453,806 profit.

At 70 thieving: Players can boost to complete the Ardougne diary (hard) for the 10% (multiplicative) improved pickpocketing success. At this level (using full rogue equipment and the diary bonus) they should expect a pickpocketing success rate of 84.4% leading to 1724 pickpockets per hour giving 74,122 ThievingThieving icon.png and 692,835 profit.

At 80 thieving: Using full rogue equipment and Ardougne diary bonus players should expect a pickpocketing success rate of 91% leading to 2148 pickpockets per hour giving 92,383 ThievingThieving icon.png and 863,521 profit.

At 90 thieving: Using full rogue equipment and Ardougne diary bonus players should expect a pickpocketing success rate of 97.6% leading to 2730 pickpockets per hour giving 117,389 ThievingThieving icon.png and 1,097,260 profit.

At 94+ thieving: with the Ardougne diary bonus players will no longer fail to pickpocket Master farmers and (using full rogue equipment) can achieve the maximum possible rate of 3000 pickpockets per hour giving 129,000 ThievingThieving icon.png and 1,205,784 profit.
