1-99 Thieving Guide
Welcome to my 1-99 Thieving guide! This guide will teach you how to get to 99 Thieving using the quickest and most up to date methods. Thieving is known as one of the easiest skills to achieve 99 in, but it also requires a lot of patience.
As you may know, you can take damage whilst training Thieving. For the beginning levels of this guide, you will literally be taking only one damage per failed pickpocket. As such, i would recommend wearing your best armor For instance, on a maxed account, i would wear Ganodermic or Torva. If i was a skiller, i would wear Bronze armor. You will also NEED to complete the Buyers And Cellars quest to finish the beginning parts of this guide, along with some other quests and subquests.
Odds are, this is what you wanted to see right away. Well, here it is.
The best part about the Pickpocket volunteers is that as your level raises, so does the XP you get from these. So in theory, you could train on these somewhat efficiently all the way to 99! However, that is not the most efficient.
Advanced Chest/Door Picking
There is a lot of technique involved in getting the most XP out of this. Here is a step by step guide on how to get the most XP out of picking advanced Chests/Doors.
1: Open all of the doors and only the chests with round tops.
2: Switch worlds. If you have two friends online on different worlds, you can "join" their world, skipping the wait time.
3: If when you go back the first world after opening all the doors in chests in both worlds and the doors and chests still have not closed yet, pickpocket volunteers so you can keep up a continuous XP rate.
These, again, have higher XP rates as your level increases. These actually are a decent method to 95, from which Monkey Knife Fighters become an option, but not the best. Make sure you get a Rubber Blackjack from Dodgy Derek in the Thieves Guild for one GP. You must also have completed the Blackjack part of "The Feud", which is a quest and two capers for Guildmaster Darren Lightfinger.. YOU CANNON USE ANY KIND OF BLACKJACK EXCEPT FOR THE RUBBER BLACKJACK!
To loot from Menaphite Thugs you will need to have completed two quests and two subquests. The quests are: Buyers and Cellars and The Feud. The subquests are Tiny Acorns, a subquest from Buyers and Cellars, and Rouge Traders from The Feud. Because of the quest requirement "The Feud", which requires killing a level 78 Bandit Champion and Tough guy, this method is unavailable to skillers. Skillers should continue Coshing Volunteers all the way to 99.
Monkey Knife Fighter
These are the fastest XP to 99, but it can become quite tedious. You will also have to have completed Monkey Madness and Do No Evil, making this method unavailable to skillers. Skillers should go back to Coshing Volunteers. If you find looting these to be the most boring thing in the world, you can try Pyramid Plunder, which is more fun, but less XP. I stayed at these because you can get a Dragon Scimitar from them, along with a lot of Rune Scimitars.. I made 2mil+ on my quest to 99 from 95. Do keep in mind you NEED a Gorilla Greegree to do this. If you do not know how to make one, it is the same as making a monkey Greegree, but with the bones of a Monkey Guard.
Thank you for reading my guide. It took me around 3-4 days of playing time to achieve 99 Thieving, but it took a lot of concentration and patience. I wish you luck on your quest for 99 Thieving!
