Uses[edit | edit source]

Picking Pockets and Stealing Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Picking pockets and stealing items in crowded areas can be difficult due to NPCs in the area having overlapping sight cones or moving around. A trick around this is to use your party members to start conversations with the NPCs that are causing you trouble. Typically the NPC will turn to face the party member they are in a conversation with and thus you can turn their sight cone away from the mark you are intending to pickpocket or the item you wish to steal. This can also be used to hold an NPC still while you attempt to pickpocket them.
