Learn how to be a thief in The Elder Scrolls Online

Oh dear.

The first phase of the Justice system is already on Elder Scrolls Online’s test servers, but you don’t have to wait until it deploys on live to learn how to be an effective thief.

Deltias Gaming has a great video guide of Update 6’s Legerdemain skill line. Through this line, players can sneak, steal, and evade the authorities if they’re wily enough. To start your career as a future thief, you’ll need to pickpocket an NPC to access this part of the game. Other than enjoying the thrill of getting away with stealing under guards’ noses, players can benefit from Legerdemain by selling stolen goods for profit. Check out the video below!

The Justice system isn’t the only highlight of Update 6, of course. The official site posted a look yesterday at another game improvement, which is a visual upgrade to Orc and Redguard armor.

Going to have to get back into ESO and see how it is now. The thief content interests me a great deal.

squidgod is right – there are very minimal waits anymore to kill anything. Even when the game was brand new I never felt I had to wait long. And as Grishnakk mentioned there is no “tagging” in ESO persay. If you do horrible damage I think it might not count, but the game attempts to overcome a lot of those issues and makes sure you can progress in a decent manner. So no, you will never have to wait in line as with other mmo’s where tagging is necessary.

Eso: still no disappointement for me. It quietly took the place which Lotro had for me, some time ago. Beautifully crafted world, great questing and interesting character classes. I’m also heavily anticipating the B2P release as it brings some new friends which get the game for the first time and probably some others back which discarded it some time ago. Considering their plans for the Imperial City, amongst others, I hope it will have a more stable financial basis after B2P release and all things considered… even if you just want to experience the game once, see the story and move on… the price of the Tamriel Edition is a steal. Imo, they are underselling it. I hope the future brings many more updates for ESO. 

And also… awesome to be able to comment on a Massively thread again so soon. Waiting for this months wage to invest into the Kickstarter. <3

Might give this a look again considering the lack of any MMO that interests me in the near future. They’ve added some interesting features in the last year or so.

I don’t recall ESO using a tagging system though… but it has been a while – Provided you do sufficient damage to a mob even if someone else or others have tagged it and done damage before you, you’ll get credit/drops etc regardless. Of course being in a group is a more sure-fire way to get credit as the groups damage is additive. 

Items though… yeah you have to wait sometimes but there is also a hell of a lot of phasing to thin numbers a bit through different story stages.

squidgod2000 tanek_09 RichardASees Thanks for the info. It does not sound as bad as some I’ve experienced in the past. I guess now we will see how the system deals with the numbers bump that will come with subs being dropped in a month.  :)

Not sure I’ve ever had that happen in ESO. Only situations I can think of that would come close is if you’re doing a delve (little solo dungeon) and someone kills the boss before you can, you’ll have to wait for it to respawn. There’s a mechanic in place to mitigate this–if someone who hasn’t killed the boss enters the boss area, it forces a respawn–but there can still be other people in the room who kill it before you tag. Respawn is like 5 mins.
Also sometimes world bosses and dolmens aren’t up and you have to wait a couple mins for respawn (or do something else).

actionist If the Massively OP community does have a guild in ESO, I’d be interested (even if community-run and not staff-run; I’d guess the MOP crew have quite a bit on their plates at the moment). I plan to check out the game later this month to see if it will be added to my already-unwieldy list of MMOs.

RichardASees Coming from Elder Scrolls single-player games, I am still not sure I’ll get used to other players being around.  :)  One of my pet peeves is needing to wait in line (or hope someone nearby invites or accepts an invite) for quest items/bosses to respawn.  Is that much of an issue in ESO?
