IMPORTANT: The listed profit rate is calculated at 99 ThievingThieving icon.png while wearing full Rogue equipment and the Thieving cape. At 70 ThievingThieving icon.png with Ardougne Diary (Medium) and full rogue equipment you can expect to make 336,124 and 110,458 ThievingThieving icon.png per hour.

Pickpocketing paladins yields large amounts of Chaos runes and raw coins. Chaos runes have very stable valuation so the expected profit from this method is almost constant throughout time. Paladins can be trapped in multiple places around the Ardougne Market, most notably in the house direct north of the silver stall. If one is trapped in there then he will be trapped in a two-tile space allowing for easy pickpocketing. As paladins will hit you frequently even at 99 ThievingThieving icon.png, it is strongly recommended to wear dodgy necklaces. Food may be bought for a low price from the Ardougne Baker's Stall, and banking is not required as all the pickpocketing loot stacks.

The calculations in this guide were based off of a pickpocketing success rate of 50/255 at level 1 and 150/255 at level 99 (The latter of which has been determined with high accuracy from trial runs and the former extrapolated from data obtained at level 70).
