I agree stealing is not well balanced atm. Walking about with my non-thief in town is just boring now, I can park anywhere without concern, which just feels un-UO. I think we need an overview of what mechanics are seen as problematic for players mostly playing thieves. I'm planning on posting a list with things I find problematic, also presenting specific solutions or asking for other ppls' opinions. I've found a few but I'm waiting until I've gotten enough experience with the shard's mechanics.

P.S. I think such a list with clearly identifiable problems/solutions are best for a fruitful discussion on stealing. Stealing discussions tend to become toxic otherwise, which doesn't help all too much! D.S.

I think the problem is scripted stealing is too easy, in town you can target specific items and snoop / steal from a crowd in seconds. I think the low town chances are a way to balance.

Don't play the lowest class...a town thief. Dungeon thieves can and do make plenty of loot. Revise your play style and stop thinking Outlands is like any other shard before it. Its a new shard, with new mechanics, and new play-styles. Learn, adapt, and thrive.
