Quest Items which can be stolen: Post em here!

Post by Omni »

Based on Brad's post in his sysop journal:

Please post the creature name and item which can be stolen if the item in question is a quest item that you should earn, not steal.

Thanks!

Volcano Town RD - Gaunts, Amulet, Major.

Any sysop implanted object for example it was either Tigger or Omni that planted luck pots on various lairs throughout nork, these were stealable, as I'm guessing they went to sack.

I have to say that nothing should be changed. If the thief has the ability to steal something, That is our ability. You wouldn't take away a barbs zerk cause he kills lairs real fast. Do not take our ability to mug items from lairs. That would not be fair.

Just my 2 cents.

The ability to steal certain items from lairs without killing them makes it unfair for other players who then kill a lair, and may take eats, lost exp, lost skill, and then do not get the item they were killing it for.. They are not removing everything you can mug.. just quest/lair items.

Well if they remove them then whats the point of mugging things lol? that is our god given right, personally i kill the lair after i mug them, but that is just me. But still should not take that away.

because others will just steal and leave the lair... just because one doesnt abuse it doesnt mean others wont.

There are many arguments against thieves being able to mug particular items from lairs, but this is the simplest. The stealing of reward/quest items from lairs (and some other creatures) wasn't intended in the first place.

Mugging still serves a purpose in taking away lair IH's on some encounters, which is valuable in itself.

The theft of an item should never be possible where that theft would cause other players to encounter a challenge and not be rewarded for the successful completion of the challenge.

All classes should have challenges which allow them to use their full complement of unique abilities and make that class needed by the community.

LOL @ Goth. I agree that mugging lairs and deprieving others should be removed. But then I ask what is the point of having mug / steal .. etc. When they rarely come into play. That is one of the key aspects of a thief, might as well rename his to assassin and say he isn't allowed to steal. IMHO quest items should simply respawn in the same way that the lair crit itself does. Have items on their own timer. Thus a thief can't steal unlimited items like the queens cup, but by the time someone else gets there its back again to be looted for the actual kill.

Personally I dont think gaining 20 skill levels of thief is any less impressive than any given lair kill or any less risky.
